He ever served as member of the Seventh, Eighth, and Eleventh CPC Central Committees, alternate member of the Political Bureau of the Eighth CPC Central Committee, vice premier of the State Council, and standing vice minister of the former CPC Advisory Commission. He was one of the very few who were part of the Party's central leadership for three consecutive generations.
