Special Report: 2010 NPC & CPPCC Sessions |


-- Cleaving to the theme of peaceful development of the relations between the two sides of the Taiwan Straits, the CPPCC made full use of its unique strengths to promote exchanges between the compatriots and cooperation between all sectors of society on both sides of the Straits.

-- The CPPCC carried out investigations and studies on promoting cooperation between Guangdong and Hong Kong, which resulted in suggestions that were greatly valued by the relevant authorities.

-- The CPPCC supported National Committee members from Hong Kong and Macao in carrying out investigations and studies with local social groups on special topics in their respective regions so that they would contribute to better implementing the principle of "one country, two systems" and to maintaining financial stability, promoting economic development and improving people's wellbeing in the two regions.

-- The CPPCC invited overseas Chinese to attend the Second Plenary Session of the Eleventh National Committee as observers, and solicited comments and suggestions from overseas Chinese and people of Chinese origin on how to fight the global financial crisis, promote education in the Chinese language overseas, and help Chinese students returning from overseas undertake scientific research, make innovations and start businesses.

-- In 2010, the CPPCC will carry out investigations and studies on cross-Straits economic, trade and cultural cooperation; deepen cross-Straits exchanges and cooperation; and strengthen emotional ties between people across the Straits.

-- The CPPCC will solicit the views of overseas Chinese experts on the formulation of the Twelfth Five-Year Plan, and conduct investigations and studies on safeguarding the rights and interests of overseas Chinese businesspeople and create conditions for overseas Chinese and Chinese students studying abroad to serve their country.
