Chinese President Hu Jintao addresses a meeting to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the country's top political advisory body, in Beijing, China, on Sept. 20, 2009.

Chinese President Hu Jintao has urged the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) to "continue carrying out its functions of political consultation, democratic supervision, and participation and raising proposals in governance, in a practical and effective way."

The CPPCC should make new contribution to boosting the Reform, Opening-up and Socialist Modernization Drive and the great cause of a peaceful reunification of the Nation, and safeguarding world peace and promoting a common development, said Hu, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, at Sunday's gathering in Beijing to mark the 60th founding anniversary of the country's political advisory body.

Other Party and State leaders present at the commemorative event were Wu Bangguo, Wen Jiabao, Li Changchun, Xi Jinping, Li Keqiang, He Guoqiang, and Zhou Yongkang. The gathering was presided over by Jia Qinglin, chairman of the CPPCC National Committee and member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau.

In his key-note speech, Hu described the CPPCC as a patriotic United Front of the Chinese people, a major institution of the multiparty cooperation and political consultation under the leadership of the CPC, and a main form to display socialist democracy in the country's political life.

Representatives from various fields join a meeting to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the country's top political advisory body, in Beijing, China, on Sept. 20, 2009.

The CPPCC has had an uncommon experience and great achievements in the past 60 years as it has grown up along with the People's Republic, Hu said.
