A total of 49 proposals made by Chinese political advisors during the annual "two sessions" have been initially selected for a process whereby implementation will be monitored by top officials.
These proposals cover areas including Internet finance, education in regions inhabited by ethnic minorities, and doctor-patient conflicts, said a statement released after a meeting held on Wednesday by the proposal committee under the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the political advisory body.
The 49 proposals were picked out of more than 5,000 that covered various fields from the economy and politics to culture and the environment.
According to Sun Gan, director of the proposal committee and a member of the Standing Committee of the CPPCC National Committee, the 49 were selected in line with the country and the CPPCC's work agenda.
The selection is pending final approval. Once confirmed, the proposal committee will keep track of departments' progress in addressing the key proposals.
