III. We will improve the quality of our work related to you and get you to fully play your role.
This Standing Committee attaches great importance to its work related to you. We have done a great deal of work over the past few years in giving you a greater role to play and improving the system of the Standing Committee in accordance with the guiding principles set out in Document No. 9 of the Central Committee. To date we have handled 2,976 bills and 23,232 proposals from you, issued more than 2,000 invitations to you to attend meetings of the Standing Committee, organized inspection tours and special research projects involving nearly ten thousand of you, and prepared 12 work-related documents. We greatly increased efforts to serve you well and gave you a bigger role to play. We will continue to follow the guiding principles set out in Document No. 9 during the new year, strive to improve the quality of our work related to you, get you to play a bigger role, and make continued progress in the work of the NPC.
We will further expand channels through which you interact with the people. We will support your active participation in activities organized by the bodies that selected you, improve the way activities for teams of deputies are organized, and increase contact and communication between you and deputies to local people 's congresses at all levels. We will arrange more inspection tours and special research projects for you to help you maintain close contact with the people, fully understand the conditions of the people, fully reflect popular sentiment and pool the wisdom of a wide range of people.
We will further strengthen your role in legislation and oversight work. The Standing Committee will take into full consideration your bills and proposals when planning legislation and oversight work and working out meeting agendas. More of you who submit proposals or suggestions will be invited to participate in the drafting and deliberation of relevant bills and in inspections of compliance with the law, and we will fully take your proposals and suggestions into consideration. We will continue to improve the mechanism for having you attend meetings of the Standing Committee as non-voting participants. In accordance with the agenda of the meeting and your wishes, the Standing Committee will invite those of you who are familiar with the topic under discussion or are involved with the concerned area, especially deputies to people's congresses at lower levels, to attend meetings of the Standing Committee as non-voting participants. The Standing Committee should give full consideration to the comments and suggestions of these participants.
We will do even more to serve you well. Modern Internet technology will be fully utilized to keep you better informed about state affairs and developments and provide you with more information. We will give more training to you, carefully review your experience in performing your duties in accordance with the law and improve measures to ensure that you are able to play your role. The liaison office of the NPC will improve its work by providing careful and considerate service to you when the NPC is in recess. (More)
