09:27, March 07, 2012

BEIJING, March 6 (Xinhua) -- Amid China's microblog boom, a growing number of national lawmakers and political advisors have opened verified real-name microblogs to stay in touch with the country's estimated 260 million microbloggers.

Following are daily highlights from their microblogs, which are most active during the ongoing annual sessions of the National People's Congress (NPC), the top legislature, and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the top political advisory body.

----Ye Qing, a NPC deputy and vice director of the Hubei Provincial Bureau of Statistics, shared this idea for boosting domestic consumption:

"Mobile phone newspaper: Wang Tian, an NPC deputy and chairman of the Bubugao Group [a consumer electronics maker], made a proposal yesterday for a 'new four-trillion-yuan' stimulus plan. He advised the government to conduct an active consumption policy, allocating four trillion yuan from revenues from state-owned enterprises to issue as vouchers to all citizens over two years!"

----Wu Zhongxin, a political advisor and economist from Hunan province, offered his recommendation for increasing residents' income in China:

"To increase residents' income from property was first proposed in last year's session. The direction is good but effects have been few. The stock market and the real estate market are both important sources of property income for ordinary residents."
