Shen Yueyue, vice-chairperson of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) and president of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), joined a panel discussion on March 6 with deputies to the 12th NPC from east China's Zhejiang Province in Beijing.

Shen expressed that since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in 2012, the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core has forged ahead to respond to practical requests, realize the Chinese Dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, and promote all-round economic political, cultural, social, and ecological progress, dubbed the so-called "Five-in-One Principle". It has also advanced the enforcement of a strategic blueprint of the "Four Comprehensives" – namely, a moderately prosperous society, reform, rule of law and Party discipline – put forward by Xi; and carried forward the career development of the CPC and the State in an all-round way, making outstanding achievements.

Shen's Remarks

"The 2017 Government Work Report delivered by Premier Li Keqiang is a great report seeking truth from facts with reforms and innovation," praised Shen.

Particularly, she reviewed the following four areas of work in the report, which left her impressed with the deputies.

First, centering on the goal of finishing building a moderately prosperous society in all aspects, the central government promoted innovative development and maintained sustained and healthy economic growth in 2016, marking a great beginning of 13th Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development (2016-2020).

Additionally, the State intensified reform in all aspects with effective measures and implementation, making breakthroughs in major sectors and key links last year.

Furthermore, China carried out initiatives to benefit and guarantee people's livelihoods, safeguard legal rights and strengthen ecological advancement, resulting in happiness and a strong sense of benefit in society.

In particular, led by local party committees, impoverished women in rural areas took training sessions and developed various innovative careers including characteristic planning and breeding, handicrafts, countryside tourism, domestic services and e-commerce to fight against poverty.

Last, the CPC has comprehensively strengthened Party discipline and developed further, winning the people's trust.

Shen stressed that 2017 marks a key year for carrying out the 13th Five-Year Plan and promoting a deepening of the supply-side reform as well.

Since the 19th CPC National Congress takes place later this year, it is of great significance for authorities to strengthen consciousness of the need to uphold political integrity, keep in mind the bigger picture, follow the CPC as the core of the Chinese leadership and act consistently with CPC Central Committee policy. Officials should also resolutely safeguard the authority of the CPC Central Committee and its central, unified leadership; uphold the authority of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core; and thoroughly study President Xi's remarks, as well as his political ideology about governing the country.

Shen also stressed an insistence on the principle of stability to ensure development, highlighting the supply-side structural reform with firm confidence and hard work, pushing ahead with the five priority tasks, and reinforcing the fight against poverty and the protection of the ecological environment.

"We will take coordinated steps to achieve stable growth, deepen reform, adjust structures, improve livelihoods and prevent risks," Shen said. "We aim to adhere to the goal of serving the people in every link such as problem solving, decision making and taking effective measures, and better respond to people's concerns in the process of legal enforcement and supervision thereby further enhancing people's happiness and fulfillment."

Women from the general population are encouraged to develop career-based innovation; contribute their efforts to furthering their excellence at work; and, play a role in the country's poverty-alleviation campaigns.

As president of the ACWF, Shen urged women's federations at all levels to strengthen the ideological and political guidance of women from the general population following the Party.

The organizations should take targeted and precise measures to help people lift themselves out of poverty. They should also promote the construction of family civilization to make contributions to sound and sustained economic development and social harmony and stability, thereby embracing the future triumph of the 19th CPC National Congress with an outstanding performance.

During the panel discussion, deputies actively spoke up about work in key sectors. Shen carefully listened to their speeches and heatedly debated with them.
