BEIJING -- Chinese President Xi Jinping has called for reform in a bid to build a globally competitive human resource system.

Xi made the remarks in an instruction for a seminar convened Friday on implementing a guideline on reform of the human resource system.

Human resources are key to China's development, and overall national strength lies in the competitiveness of its talent, Xi said in the instruction, adding that reform efforts should be strengthened and the guideline should be fully implemented to attract global talent.

He called for breaking systemic obstacles to attracting talent and unleashing their creativity and innovative capacity.

Xi asked officials to provide better services for talent and care for them to encourage them to contribute to the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and achieving the "Chinese dream."

Zhao Leji, member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, delivered Xi's instruction at the seminar.

Liu Yunshan, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, said at the seminar that the reform should focus on implementing new development concepts, major projects and programs, and integrate human resources development with social and economic development.

Liu also called for more efficient management of human resources and for efforts to inspire talent's creativity and capability of innovation.

Liu asked officials to improve communication with experts and befriend talented people in all fields.

The guideline for deepening human resource development system reform was published by the CPC Central Committee on March 21. The document serves as an important guiding paper for the country's current and future human resource development.
