Top Chinese leader stresses political advisory body's role in policy-making

    BEIJING, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese leader Jia Qinglin urged here on Wednesday that the role of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) in scientific and democratic policy-making should be strengthened.

    "We should increase the forms of political consultation and make it an important aspect in making scientific and democratic policies," Jia, chairman of the 11th CPPCC National Committee, said at a seminar held by political advisory body.

    Jia, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, stressed improving democratic supervision in three phases: information, communication and feedback.

    Jia said the work in the latter half of 2008 would be extensive and tough, and he urged officials at all levels to closely track changing international economic trends and research the new issues emerging in domestic economic development.

    He also said that senior officials should be clean-handed and wise in choosing and promoting personnel. He called on them to lead high-quality teams by setting good examples.

    The three-day seminar, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the reform and opening-up policy, ended on Wednesday. Attendees summed up their experience from recent political consultation work and discussed advice on future improvements.
