Beijing: The Communist Party of China (CPC) Wednesday unveiled a new leadership, electing the 18th CPC Central Committee to lead the party for the coming five years.

Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang were elected to the Central Committee at the closing session of the 18th CPC National Congress here.

Xi, 59, is member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the 17th CPC Central Committee, vice president and vice chairman of the CPC Central Military Commission, reported Xinhua.

Li, 57, is also member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the 17th CPC Central Committee and vice premier.

The Central Committee will in turn elect the Political Bureau, the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau and the General Secretary at its first plenary session Thursday morning.

The CPC, at the meeting, hailed reforms and opening up of the economy as the path to a stronger China and the salient feature of a new period in the country.

The inclusion of this statement in the party constitution will help the whole party acquire a deeper understanding of the importance of continuing to carry out reform and opening up and thus pursue this endeavour even more consciously and with greater determination, reported Xinhua, citing the resolution approved by the 18th CPC National Congress that concluded Wednesday.

It is by carrying out reform and opening up that China has achieved rapid development in the past 30 plus years, and it is reform and opening up that will ensure its future development, states the resolution.

"Only reform and opening up can enable China, socialism and Marxism to develop themselves," it says.
