BEIJING, May 23 (Xinhua) -- A symposium was held Wednesday to commemorate the 70th anniversary of a celebrated speech on art and literature delivered by late Chairman Mao Zedong at the former revolutionary base of Yan'an on May 23, 1942.

President Hu Jintao, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said the speech is "a creative combination of the basic principles of Marxism and the practices of Chinese revolutionary art and literature," as well as described it as a "classic document."

Generations of artists have been inspired by the speech to create works that provide "strong spiritual strength" for China's construction and reform, Hu said.

Mao delivered his speech at a meeting held in Yan'an to discuss the orientation of Chinese revolutionary art and literature 70 years ago. He said arts should serve workers, soldiers and farmers, stressing that artists should go into the grassroots of the people and the struggles in order to make contributions to the revolution.
