A senior Chinese official has called for rule of law in the state's decision-making to ensure economic development and maintain social justice.

Zhou Yongkang, a Standing Committee member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remark in his speech at a ceremony Sunday in Beijing to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the School of Law under Renmin University of China.

After more than 60 years of development, a socialist legal system with Chinese characteristics is taking shape and China will further promote legislative, judicial and law enforcement work, said Zhou.

Chinese authorities will pay more attention to scientific and democratic decision-making in line with laws to promote social harmony and justice, he said.

The government will also pay more attention to education on laws and cultivation of more legal talents, the official added.

Renmin University's School of Law is hosting an international seminar on legal systems of China and other countries. The event invited about 400 law experts from law schools of about 100 universities and colleges around the world.
