The ACFIC briefed the media about its proposals and suggestions during a press conference on March 3rd, two days before the opening of this year’s CPPCC meeting in Beijing.

The ACFIC made eight collective proposals and suggestions concerning eight areas of the country’s social and economic development, including promotion of small-and-medium-sized enterprises, healthy growth of private sector economy, further industrial structural readjustment, guiding the healthy development of various sectors, encouraging strategic new industries and low-carbon technologies, solving the problems related to farmers, agriculture and the countryside, helping the private enterprises to go overseas, coordinated development of regional economy and the creation of new jobs.

ACFIC Vice Chairman Zhuang Congsheng told the press that as an important component of the NPPCC, the ACFIC has the obligation to participate and contribute to the formulation of the country’s major political policies as well as excise democratic supervision.

“We have been voicing our opinions and making proposals regarding the hot topics, difficulties and focuses of the country’s social economic life during the annual NPPCC session,” Zhuang said.

The proposals and addresses are a result of months of extensive investigation and research since latter last year by the ACFIC national office departments, directly affiliated trade groups and local chambers of commerce. The research focused on how to handle the financial crisis, promote steady and relatively fast development of the economy and readjust economic development patterns.
