Hu asked artists, writers and playwrights to "review the spirit of the speech" and "serve the people and socialism," adding that all forms of art should enjoy free development.

Li Changchun, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, stressed at the symposium the importance to adhere to a "socialist cultural path with Chinese characteristics" and to build the country into a "cultural power" while talking about carrying forward the spirit of Mao's speech.

An evening gala was held in Beijing Wednesday in memory of Mao's speech. Li attended the gala.

Jin Minqing, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said Mao paid a great deal of attention to cultural power during the revolution, adding that this emphasis was carried forward by the CPC to the present day.
