BEIJING — About one sixth of the proposals from China’s national political advisers in 2014 went to reforms, said a report on March 3.

Among 6,101 proposals submitted by members of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) in 2014, 1,108 ones were about reforms in various aspects, said a report submitted to the annual session of the CPPCC National Committee that opened in Beijing.

They covered reforms of state-owned enterprises, administrative approvals, government supervision on the market, government debts, social security and household registration.

About 800 proposals were about legislation and judicial system while about 1,000 addressed people’s livelihood such as education and public healthcare service.

Political advisers also put forwards about 1,400 proposals on the sustainable economic development and environmental protection, mostly on improving energy efficiency, cutting redundant productivity, developing eco-friendly vehicles and smoothing the transfer of use rights of farm land.

The Standing Committee of the CPPCC National Committee has received responses to about 99 percent of the proposals from relevant authorities, according to the report.

A total of 20.6 percent of the proposals have been accepted while 63.8 percent are being considered, the report said.

In 2015, political advisers expect to contribute to drafting of the 13th five-year national development plan and the country’s strategic initiatives such as the initiatives of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, or Belt and Road.
