Focus on reform at meeting of Leading Group

CHINESE President Xi Jinping yesterday called for fully implementing the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and pressing ahead with reform. Xi was speaking at the first meeting of the Leading Group for Deepening Overall Reform of the 19th CPC Central Committee, which he heads. “In studying and implementing the spirit of the Party congress, we should focus on its essence, arrangements and requirements on reform,” said Xi. The leading group ordered early planning of reform for 2018 — the 40th anniversary of the beginning of reform and opening-up. Revisions to the leading group’s working rules and a report on supervising implementation of reform were also adopted at the meeting. A guideline stipulating that the State Council should report management of state-owned assets to the National People’s Congress Standing Committee was also adopted. It is aimed at ensuring that the management of state-owned assets is open and transparent, to enable resources to better serve development and benefit the people. A guideline on the selection and management of officials working in poverty-stricken regions was passed at the meeting, to help select officials able to promote poverty relief and deal with slack management and undesirable work practices. A three-year action plan on the rural environment was also approved, primarily focusing on garbage and sewage disposal while preserving the landscape. A guideline on establishing a “lake chief” system was approved and lake chiefs will be appointed with responsibilities including resource protection, pollution prevention and control, and ecological restoration. China began to appoint “river chiefs” nationwide in December last year. The leading group also agreed to fully implement educational policy and adhere to socialist educational orientation. Great importance will be attached in cultivating rural teaching staff. The leading group asked for the expansion of a pilot project to reform rural residential land, protecting public ownership of land, farmers’ interests and arable land. Farmers should not trade their residential land or abandon their rights to use the land in exchange for becoming urban residents, according to a statement issued after the meeting. The meeting also called for improving the recruitment of general medical practitioners, especially in impoverished areas. A reform plan for Central School of Communist Youth League of China was adopted. Participants agreed that the school should emphasize political training to provide talent for the Party’s work on youth and the Communist Youth League of China. The meeting passed a regulation on legislation, which requires consultation and third-party evaluation before making laws involving major adjustment of interests or those arousing wide controversies. Legislative organs should play a better role in expressing, balancing and adjusting social interests and ensure each legislation conforms to the spirit of the Constitution and the people’s will and win public support, the statement said. The leading group also passed a guideline on deepening reform in trials of intellectual property cases.
