Deng Xiaoping delivered the opening speech, which stressed that China's modernization drive must proceed from China's reality. China should integrate the universal truth of Marxism with its reality, and take its own road to socialism with special Chinese characteristics. Deng said in the speech that these were the conelusions arrived at after long experience.

On behalf of the 11th Party Central Committee, Hu Yaobang delivered a report at the congress entitled "Creating a New Situation in China's Socialist Modernization Construction in an All-Round Way." Hu's report laid down the general task of the Party in the new period: Unite with the people of the various nationalities and, by self-reliance and hard struggle, strive for gradual achievement of modernization of industry, agriculture, national defence and science and technology, to build China into a socialist country with a high level of culture and democracy.

The congress examined and adopted a new Party Constitution.
