China's People's Daily publishes an editorial on Friday urging members of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the country's top advisory body, to pay more attention to public concerns and issues which the Party and governments are compelled to deal with.
People's Daily editorials are regarded as the most authoritative commentary in China, which reflect the core intentions of Communist Party of China and the central government.
The editorial said they should raise more high-quality proposals by carrying out in-depth investigations to find out the needs of the public, said the editorial.
Striving to change the pattern of economic growth, saving natural resources and protecting the environment, technological innovation should be the member's priority concerns, said the editorial.
The members were specially urged to make beneficial proposals and provide sincere advice for development in all fields, said the editorial.
During 2007 the country's drive of building a harmonious socialist society is very important and all the advisors should earnestly perform their duty in political consultation, democratic supervision and participation in and discussion of state affairs, said the editorial.
China's top advisory body, the National Committee of the CPPCC, concluded its annual session Thursday morning after a fortnight of discussions on national issues. It adopted a resolution that calls for more effort to achieve social harmony and firm opposition against secessionist activities in any form which seeks "de jure independence of Taiwan".
