The "Online Communications Activity Series for Celebrating the 90th Anniversary of the Founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC)," held by the Publicity and Education Bureau under the Central Publicity Department and jointly sponsored by 100 websites, including People's Daily Online, Xinhua Net, China Civilization Web site, China Network Television, Guangming Daily and China Youth, was officially launched.
Its first interview around the theme of "advantages of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics—economy" was held on the morning of May 24.

In the interview, the host invited officials from related bureaus and departments under the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, who carried out online communications with netizens and answered their questions.

Zhou Nan, an inspector from the Planning Department under the NDRC, expressed during the interview that China had successfully implemented the 11th Five-Year Plan between 2006 and 2010; China's economic and social development had made new and great progress; the comprehensive national strength of China greatly increased; the economic aggregate of China had risen to second place in the world from fifth place at the end of the 10th Five-Year Plan, and the per capita GDP of China had exceeded 4,000 U.S. dollars, upgrading China's status from a lower-middle income country to a higher-middle income country. This fully reflects the superiority of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics and the great power of China's reform and open door policy and has also laid a solid foundation for China to make even greater progresses in the 12th Five-Year Plan.

The Chinese government will further adjust and optimize the structure of financial expenditure and make greater efforts to protect and improve people's livelihood while promoting the stable and rapid economic development, Wang Yida, deputy director of the Comprehensive Department under the Ministry of Finance, said when answering questions of netizens' concern.

Wang also said that the government will construct 10 million affordable housing units, and the financial sector will actively cooperate with relevant departments to support affordable housing construction projects to ensure that various policies and measures are practically implemented and can achieve actual results.

In regards to the food security issue, Zhang Hui, associate counsel and engineer of the Development and Planning Department under the Ministry of Agriculture, said that in order to ensure national food security, the government will continue to intensify policies to strengthen agriculture and benefit farmers, give full play to the effect of major grain producing areas, fully mobilize the enthusiasm of local governments and farmers to improve agriculture and increase the grain output and make major efforts to maintain nearly 1.1 million square kilometers of grain sowing area and increase the comprehensive grain production capacity.

In regards to the issue of housing price control, Ni Hong, director of the Housing Reform and Development Department and the Policy Research Office under the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, said that a series of policies and measures to strengthen the control on the real estate market launched by the State Council has achieved initial success. However, the results still need to be consolidated.
The direction and goal of the real estate market regulation in the next step is to maintain a basic balance between supply and demand, a basically reasonable structure, and basically stable prices to strictly control the speculative investment demand. In order to achieve this goal, the government needs to increase supply and strengthen affordable housing construction, adjust demand and improve differentiated tax credit policies as well as strengthen supervision and standardize the order of the real estate market.
