seminar on socialist theories Saturday in Guiyang, capital of

Liu Yunshan, a member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central
Committee and To Huy Rua, a member of the Political Bureau of the CPV
Central Committee, made keynote speeches at the seminar.

Liu, who is also head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central
Committee, said the seminar, which centered on the discussion of the
scientific concept of development and the construction of a
harmonious socialist society, would enable the two parties to learn
from the experiences of each other in pursuing the socialist ideals.

exploring ways to construct socialism while learning from each other
in the process, he said.

attention, studied and learned from China's experience during the
reform and opening-up drive, he said.
