The Standing Committee increased its consciousness of the need to maintain political integrity, think in big-picture terms, uphold the leadership core, and keep in alignment.

2. 注重沉到基层,“解剖麻雀”,用事实和数据说话,对具体问题一地一策、一事一策。

We emphasized visiting local communities, analyzing representative cases, and basing proposals and suggestions on facts and data. We managed specific problems by tailoring solutions to local conditions and specific cases.

We put great energy into fostering the Chinese spirit and promoted the flourishing and development of socialist culture.

We produced excellent works worthy of the times, improved the moral conduct and artistic skills of writers and artists and created a favorable environment in which literature and art can flourish.



Major Tasks for 2017

5. 聚焦脱贫攻坚重大部署,深入贫困地区,进村入户,接续调研,跟踪监督。

We will visit villages and households in poor areas to conduct sustained research and follow-up oversight in light of the major plans for poverty alleviation.

6. 协助党和政府认真做好协调关系、理顺情绪、化解矛盾、增进团结的工作。

We will assist the Communist Party of China and the government in effectively coordinating relations, remedying grievance, resolving conflicts, and enhancing unity.



Improving CPPCC Democratic Oversight

7. 树立“公、和、诚、实”的理念,开展监督必出于公,秉持公心才能坚持真理、敢于担当。

We must uphold "public good, harmony, sincerity, and truthfulness." Our work must be for the public good for us to speak the truth and be ready to take on responsibility.

8. 政协民主监督内容丰富,必须突出重点、有的放矢。

Given the wide breadth covered by CPPCC democratic oversight, we must have clear priorities and targets.

9. 设身处地多提建设性意见,不存旁观之心、不为敷衍之事。

We need to put ourselves in others' shoes, and give constructive advice instead of sitting on the sidelines, being detached, or taking a perfunctory attitude.

10. 要坚持“不打棍子、不扣帽子、不抓辫子”,鼓励敢讲话、讲真话, 尊重和包容不同意见、逆耳之言和尖锐批评。

It is important to adhere to the principles of not criticizing others without good reasons, not labeling them, and not preying on their weakness. CPPCC members should be encouraged to speak the truth, and should respect and tolerate different opinions, unpleasant comments and sharp criticism.
