Civic Organizations

Many civic organizations in China participate in national and local political life independently in accordance with the Constitution and the law. Local branches of these organizations are scattered in the urban and rural areas, serving to unite workers, young people, women and other persons of all walks of life nationwide. They play an important role in coordinating social and public affairs and safeguarding the legitimate rights and interests of the people.
