Hu Jintao, Chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC), China's top military command, has pressed military forces to learn how to solve real problems by studying and applying the Scientific Outlook on Development.
The Outlook was adopted at the 17th CPC National Congress in October 2007. It contains important guiding principles for China's economic and social development.
In a recent written instruction to the People's Liberation Army (PLA), Hu said the military forces should study and practice the Outlook in a practical way.
Hu's instruction comes as the PLA is carrying out its third stage of in-depth study and practice of the Outlook.
The education campaign should be based on grassroots situations and provide specific guidance; it should give prominence to practice and focus on solving real problems, the instruction said.
The campaign should obtain real effects and ensure all tasks of the army are completed.
In September last year, the CPC launched an 18-month campaign to study and implement the Outlook.
