BEIJING, Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- A senior Communist Party of China (CPC) official stresses the importance of further improving the development environment for the private economy in a symposium on Sunday in Beijing.
You Quan, head of the United Front Work Department of the CPC Central Committee, called on private entrepreneurs to study and implement the spirit of the key speech delivered by CPC Central Committee General Secretary Xi Jinping during a symposium on private enterprises on Thursday.
Xi said Thursday that the country will unswervingly encourage, support and guide the development of the non-public sector and support private enterprises to develop toward a broader stage.
"Xi's speech has fully demonstrated China's determination to uphold the basic economic system of socialism with Chinese characteristics and showed a clear attitude to unswervingly encourage, support and guide the development of the non-public sector," said You.
You, also a member of the Secretariat of the CPC Central Committee, pointed out that Xi's words have clarified some people's vague understanding and doubts and are of great importance both theoretically and practically.
Private entrepreneurs shall enhance their confidence in socialism with Chinese characteristics, the principles and policies of the CPC Central Committee and the future development of private enterprises, said You.
You also required offices of the united front work department and federation of industry and commerce at all levels to work with Party committees and governments to improve and implement policies, promote the communication between governments and enterprises, help with companies' difficulties and create a better environment for the development of the private economy.
