For historical reasons and on account of economic backward-ness, eighty per cent of the whole population of old China were illiterate. New China, ever since its founding, has been conducting programmes of literacy, post-literacy and continuing education which, as practice has shown, are extremely important for the reconstruction of the country and the development of the nation. Remarkable achievements have been made, thanks to the leadership of the Communist Party and the Central People's Government, the concern and support of the governments at various levels, all the departments and fronts concerned and the broad masses of the people.
