Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and other leaders on Wednesday vowed to fully implement the "Four Comprehensives" strategic layout in order to realize economic and social development targets.
The "Four Comprehensives" refers to a political concept initiated by Chinese President Xi Jinping, which comprises "comprehensively building a moderately prosperous society, comprehensively deepening reform, comprehensively advancing the rule of law, and comprehensively strictly governing the Communist Party of China (CPC)."
They made the remarks while joining panel discussions with members of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the country's top political advisory body.
In accordance with the "Four Comprehensives," China should make greater effort to stabilize growth, expand effective demand and withstand downward pressure, in an effort to keep economic operation within a proper range, Premier Li Keqiang told CPPCC National Committee members from the economic and agricultural circles.
Reform shall be pushed forward, with a focus on cutting government red tape, reforming the tax and financial sector, as well as reforming state-owned enterprises and assets, Li said.
Li promised to inject vigor into the market by promoting mass entrepreneurship and innovation. He also stressed economic restructuring by offering more public goods and services to the people and boosting consumption relating to information and tourism.
The premier also emphasized green, safe, and efficient development of the agricultural sector.
Zhang Dejiang, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, joined discussion with political advisors from Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions (SAR).
Zhang urged a full and accurate understanding of the principle of "one country, two systems" and the safeguarding of the authority of the Constitution and the Basic Law.
Zhang said the Central Government will fully support the law-based governance of Hong Kong and Macao SAR chief executives and the SAR governments.
Top political advisor Yu Zhengsheng urged CPPCC National Committee members from the religious sector to advance the religious work in a healthy way under the rule of law.
Religious extremism shall be firmly rejected and the harmonious and stable development of religions in China shall be safeguarded, Yu said.
Liu Yunshan, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, participated in a discussion by political advisors from the All China Federation of Trade Unions and sectors of social welfare and security.
He urged officials to continuously improve their work style with persistent will and patience to promote development.
Long-term and effective mechanism should be established to ensure the improvement of work style, Liu said.
He also called for taking care of workers who face difficulties, with low income and suffer disability by enhancing employment, social security and protection of workers' rights and interests.
A joint panel discussion by members of China National Democratic Construction Association and non-Party personages was attended by Wang Qishan, head of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.
Wang said the CPC has taken it as a significant mission to build a clean Party and combating corruption since its 18th national congress.
The success of the fight depends on whether it wins public support and satisfaction, he said, "The ruling party must always be on the way to fight against corruption."
Joining discussion with political advisors from the science and technology sector, Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli urged to speed up innovation-led development and deepen the sector's institutional reform, in order to provide strong back-up for economic development and for improving people's life.
CPPCC National Committee members convened Tuesday in Beijing for their annual full session that is scheduled to last 10 days.
