China's top political advisor on Friday underlined archives work of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the country's top political advisory body.
Chairman of the CPPCC National Committee Jia Qinglin said initiated by former Premier Zhou Enlai, the archives work of the CPPCC has witnessed and enshrined many historical moments in which non-communist parties have held close cooperation with the Communist Party of China (CPC).
Jia made the remarks in a meeting held on Friday to call for studying President Hu Jintao's report to the 17th CPC National Congress among officials in charge of archives work of the CPPCC.
Jia urged the officials to collect more valuable historical archives for advisory bodies at all levels especially the archives of CPPCC members' activities after the foundation of the People's Republic of China in 1949.
The top political advisor stressed that advisory bodies at all levels should regard archives work as a fundamental job and make long-term plans for the development of the work.
