Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said in his annual government work report that the nation will further implement a series of major reforms in the fiscal, taxation, financial, income distribution, and political systems as well as in public institutions this year. Strong determination and great wisdom is needed to solve both old and new problems in these fields.

A variety of policy signals have been released during the just concluded two sessions of China's top legislature and political advisory body.

The Ministry of Finance plans to promote the development of small and micro-sized enterprises by establishing a SME development fund and other means.

The Ministry of Education will introduce specific measures regarding the reform of the national college entrance examination within the next 10 months.

Prior to the two sessions, the State Council issued new regulations to make hukou, or household registration, in small- and medium-sized cities more flexible.

During the two sessions, the State Administration for Industry and Commerce issued "32 opinions" to promote the transformation and upgrading of Guangdong province.

Despite all difficulties, the country is actively deepening various reforms on a large scale.
The gradual path of reforms determines that the nearer we approach the goal, the more difficulties we will meet. Great courage is essential to overcoming one after another obstacle.

Central government departments have begun publishing details of their spending on overseas trips, official vehicles and receptions. The Zhujia county government in Sichuan province has made it clear that no reception meal should cost more than 15 yuan. The new rural cooperative medical care system will be extended to cover the entire nation, and the Red Cross Society of China has launched public bidding for its auditing work.

Through constant explorations, the country will make greater progress in implementing reforms, and achieve better social and economic development.

Canada- great idea. China can become the gay and lesbian capital of the world. You can definitely outshine The U.S. in this. It will also help with population control. I wonder why nobody in the U.S. thought of this

The goal of reforms is perhaps to allow more connected people to become millionaires, while the masses live on the verge of starvation.

If it is not too divisive, and would be widely supported, it would be good to see gays having the right to marry in a civil ceremony. It would be unwise to require the different religions to perform gay marriages as there would be fierce resistance as they say marriage is between a man and a woman. This would put China far in advance of the U.S.
