Hu Jintao took a commoner's approach on Tuesday while he joined the
Jiangsu delegation to the 17th National Congress of the Communist
Party of China (CPC) to listen to the delegates talk about social and
economic development in the rich eastern province, and discuss his
report delivered at the start of the Party congress on Monday.

Jiangsu's Party chief Li Yuanchao and other officials praised the
country's past five years as "having maintained sustainable, fast,
coordinated and healthy development" and "having improved the lives
of ordinary people", citing the province's own growth in the
meantime.

Hu Jintao joins a panel discussion with delegates of Jiangsu province
on Tuesday. He listens to the delegates talk about social and
economic development in the rich eastern province, and discuss his
report delivered at the start of the Party congress on Monday.

Hu urged the province to fully exploit its advantages and take the
lead in transforming the mode of economic growth in accordance with
the Scientific Outlook on Development.

"We stress sound and rapid development, better quality, efficiency
and an enlightened approach to development that results in expanded
production, a better life and sound ecological and environmental
conditions," he said.

Delegate Wu Renbao, former Party chief of Huaxi Village, China's
richest, spoke highly of the Party congress. "The report is
comprehensible to ordinary farmers," he said.

"I would like to keep working although I'm old," 79-year-old Wu said.
Hearing that, Hu Jintao was the first to applaud with a broad smile.

Chen Qiuyan, who cleans the sewage treatment system in Xuzhou City,
was excited about her second meeting with Hu. "We will carefully
study and put into practice the essence of the congress," she said.

Hu visited Chen and her colleagues during a visit to Jiangsu in 1996.

"Please forward my best regards to your colleagues," said Hu. "I hope
your working and living conditions have improved with the past
decade's economic growth and hope you'll do an even better job," Hu
said with a gentle voice.

Toward the end of the two-hour discussion, Hu said that the report he
made on behalf of the 16th CPC Central Committee is a product of
democracy and crystallizes the collective wisdom of the entire Party
and all the Chinese people.

After deliberations and revisions at the Party congress, the report
will become a political proclamation and action plan to guide the
Party in uniting all the Chinese people to seek better development
along the path of building socialism with Chinese characteristics, Hu
said.
