BEIJING -- Senior Chinese official Liu Yunshan on Wednesday called for efforts to bolster patriotism and shared values.

Liu, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, stressed ethical and cultural progress to build a moderately prosperous society in an all-around manner.

People's faith in the country's independent "path, theory and system" should be further boosted, Liu said at a conference held by a central commission to direct the promotion of spiritual civilization.

The general public's awareness of the new governing concepts and strategies of the CPC Central Committee should be raised, said Liu, head of the commission.

He noted that core socialist values should be deeply rooted among the people, and family-inherited integrity should be advocated.

Core socialist values include national goals of prosperity, democracy, civility and harmony; social goals of freedom, equality, justice and the rule of law; and individual values of patriotism, dedication, integrity and friendship.

He also urged efforts to promote patriotism embodied in the Chinese Dream, and to improve public etiquette.

Efforts will continue to rectify filthy and disorder public space, and acts of dishonesty, as well as spreading harmful information on the Internet, Liu stressed.
