Liu Qi, a member of the Politburo of the 16th Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, was re-elected secretary of the CPC Beijing Municipal Committee on Tuesday.

Liu was elected to the post at the first plenary session of the 10th CPC Beijing Municipal Committee which opened Thursday and closed Tuesday.

Liu, a native of Wujin, eastern Jiangsu Province, was born in November 1942. He graduated from the Metallurgical Department of the Beijing Institute of Iron and Steel Engineering (today's Beijing Science and Technology University) in 1968.

Liu was deputy secretary of the CPC Beijing Municipal Committee between March 1998 and October 2002. He became secretary of the CPC Beijing Municipal Committee in October 2002.

Liu, who is also president of the Beijing Organizing Committee for the 2008 Olympics, has pledged Beijing will go all out to make the 2008 Summer Olympic Games a big success.

"The Olympics are a long-cherished dream of the Chinese nation, and we are determined to make the national capital a prosperous place and a harmonious society with civilized residents, and a healthy, user-friendly environment," Liu said during the session.

In the next five years, the municipal government will strive to score an average GDP growth rate of nine percent, raising the per capita GDP of Beijing from the current 6,000 U.S. dollars to 10,000 dollars, said Liu.
