The 12th Shanxi Provincial Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) -- the top political advisory body in Shanxi province -- started its fourth session on Jan 19 in the provincial capital, Taiyuan city.
The opening conference was attended by 480 political advisers, including Li Jia, chairman of the CPPCC Shanxi Committee.
Li delivered the CPPCC Shanxi Committee's work report, reviewing the efforts and achievements in 2020 and setting out the work plan for 2021.
Xi Xiaojun, vice-chairman of the CPPCC Shanxi Committee, reported on the handling of proposals from more than 500 CPPCC Shanxi Committee members at the conference.
Some 1,340 proposals from individuals, political parties and various organizations have been collected since the conclusion of the third session of the 12th CPPCC Shanxi Committee in January 2020, said Xi.
He added that by the end of December 2020, 1,126 of the collected proposals were put on record for further discussion and implementation. These proposals involved issues concerning COVID-19 pandemic prevention and control, resumption of enterprise production and operation, poverty alleviation, rural revitalization, supply-side structural reform, innovation, people's livelihoods, environmental protection and restoration, as well as cultural and tourism development.
Many proposals have been incorporated into the Shanxi Provincial Government's decision-making, development planning and departmental work.
