BEIJING, Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- Vice President Xi Jinping on Tuesday called for efforts to promote the contributions of retirees as well as their fine work styles, as he extends festival greetings to them ahead of China's Lunar New Year.

At a reception that was attended by more than 2,000 retired officials, Xi, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, said in a speech it was important to show respect and take good care of retired officials.
