BEIJING, March 5 (Xinhua) -- Performing its duties in participating in state affairs and facilitating the central tasks of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the country, the Jiusan Society over the past five years has focused on innovation-driven development and the pursuit of scientific and technological self-reliance and strength.
