BEIJING, Oct. 13 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping has stressed the importance of implementing the national strategy to address population aging, which will ensure senior citizens enjoy happy lives in their twilight years.

Xi urged Party committees and governments at all levels to attach great importance to work related to the aging population, noting that comprehensive measures should be taken to ensure that the elderly live their lives positively and healthily.
