The big ceremony, celebrating the 90 anniversary of China's Communist Party, was held in the Great Hall of the People on July 1st. Secretary general of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party (CCCCP), Hu Jintao, said during his speech that in these 90 years, the Chinese Communist Party guided the people in this ancient land of China, accomplishing and promoting 3 main matters.
The first matter is the party's accomplishment of a democratic revolution, depending on the people, and realizing national independence and emancipation of its people. The party and the people carried out 28 years of brave battle, establishing the People's Republic of China. The establishment of new China brought about 'people manage their own affairs', as China, from thousands years of feudalism-autocracy system has transformed into a people's democratic system, finishing China's history of a society of semi-colonialism, semi-feudalism, thoroughly abolishing the unequal treaties the great powers gave China as well as abolishing the complete privilege of imperialism in China.
The second big matter is the firm establishment of socialism by the party. China's adoption of a socialist society brought about the most extensive and deepest social transformation in China's history. Setting up the national economy system is the accumulation of important experience in the progress of the socialist construction.
The third big matter is the great revolution of the reform system (reformation and opening to the outside world, the reforms China began initiating in 1979) carried out by the party, relying on the people, initiating, persisting and developing the Chinese type of socialism. Since the Third Plenum of the Eleventh Chinese Communist Party Central Committee, the party underwent an arduous exploration, establishing and perfecting the socialist market economy system, persisting on opening up and promoting the great accomplishment obtained by the socialist-modernization drive.
Hu Jintao said that in these 90 years, the transformations in China's society, their political influence and social meaning are very rarely seen the history of human development. Reality fully proves that since recent times, in the course of China's social development, history and people chose the Chinese Communist Party, chose Marxism, chose the road of socialism, chose the reforms. China's Communist Party is the core leader of the Chinese people, unceasingly initiating new dimensions of development.
