It is of great realistic importance and profound historic significance to issue the outline on patriotic education as the country is celebrating the 70th founding anniversary of the People's Republic of China, said a statement issued after the meeting.
Strenghening patriotic education in the new era aims to make patriotism the faith and spiritual strength of all Chinese people to motivate their conscious actions, the statement said.
