China's national political advisors submitted 6,069 items of proposals to the annual session of the top advisory body as of the deadline at 2 p.m. Thursday, said an official from the session.
Liu Xiaobing, in charge of collecting the proposals at the Fifth Session of the 11th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), said that compared with last year, proposals this year place more attention to developing real economy, supporting small and micro-sized enterprises, problems facing agriculture, rural areas and farmers, as well as accelerating reforms of financial system.
Promoting development in regions of ethnic minorities, strengthening emission reduction and environmental protection, deepening reform in science and technology system, making innovation in social management, and building social security system have also been addressed in the proposals.
Making proposals is an important form for political advisory bodies and their members to carry out their duties in participating in the administration and discussion of state affairs.
The Committee for Handling Proposals is further examining the proposals. The CPPCC National Committee will hold a meeting at the end of this month to deliver the proposals to relevant departments.
