Wang noted that in the past year, members of the Standing Committee of the CPPCC National Committee conducted consultation with an emphasis on achieving a good opening of the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025) and demonstrated its advantage of a specialized consultative body in the country's system for governance.
The meeting reviewed and adopted documents including the draft agenda and the schedule for the fifth annual session of the 13th CPPCC National Committee, and reports on the work of the Standing Committee of the CPPCC National Committee and its handling of proposals.
