BEIJING — China’s top political advisory body concluded its annual session, building a broad consensus and unity for national development.
Xi Jinping and other Chinese leaders including Li Keqiang, Li Zhanshu, Wang Huning, Zhao Leji, Han Zheng and Wang Qishan attended the closing meeting of the second session of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) in Beijing on March 14.
Addressing the closing meeting, Wang Yang, chairman of the CPPCC National Committee, called for further improvement of the CPPCC system to translate the Party’s propositions into consensus and action of people from various sectors.
Wang stressed the need to uphold and strengthen unity, urging the CPPCC to carry out its dual responsibility of offering suggestions and building consensus, and pool joint efforts to serve the central tasks of the Party and the state.
Focusing on key issues including securing a victory in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects, political advisers have been engaged in in-depth consultations and actively offered proposals during the session, achieving important results, he noted.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China as well as the CPPCC.
Hailing CPPCC’s achievements in participating in the founding and developing of New China, exploring reforms, and realizing Chinese Dream, Wang said the political advisory body now enjoys a broader stage and shoulder a heavier responsibility as socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era.
