Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping on Monday called for efforts to push forward the sinicization of Marxism while sticking to the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

The Communist Party of China (CPC), guided by scientific theory, has combined adherence to the basic tenets of Marxism with adaptation to Chinese circumstances in revolution, construction and reform. It has pushed forward the sinicization of Marxism to ensure the Party's guiding ideology and basic theory advance with the times, Xi said.

It's the primary reason the CPC has grown and expanded over the past 90 years and led the people to notable achievements, said the vice president, who is also a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau.

The sinicization of Marxism generates two major theoretical results, which are the philosophy of Mao Zedong and the theoretical system of socialism with Chinese characteristics, including Deng Xiaoping's Theory, the Three Represents and the Scientific Outlook on Development, Xi said.

In order to push forward the sinicization of Marxism, the Party shall take a scientific attitude toward Marxism and properly handle the dialectical unity of adherence and development, Xi said.

CPC members shall maintain the lofty aims of communism in mind, focus on what they are doing, and value the practices and creations of the people, he said.

Party members shall keep a close eye on changes in the world with broad vision and learn from all the achievements of civilization, while equipping themselves with the theoretical innovations.

Xi made the remarks at a national forum on party building in Beijing.
