As mentioned in the introduction speech just now, the Standing Committee of the NPC has issued norms such as specific measures to improve the work related to NPC deputies. What other measures has the Standing Committee of the NPC taken to strengthen the ability of deputies to perform their duties and better play their roles? Thank you.

Song Rui:

Supporting and guaranteeing deputies perform their duties in accordance with the law and giving full play to the role of deputies is the foundation for doing a good job in the work related to people's congresses in the new era. The past decade has seen the working mechanism of deputies become more complete, and leap-forward development has been achieved. First of all, solid steps have been taken to build the deputies working mechanism. In addition to the 35 specific measures just mentioned to strengthen and improve the work of NPC deputies, the NPC Standing Committee has also formulated opinions on improving the mechanism for members of the Standing Committee to have communication with NPC deputies, opinions on improving the system for deputies to communicate with the public, opinions on the implementation of the close contact between deputies and the public through online platforms, and opinions on strengthening and improving the study and training of NPC deputies, further promoting the institutionalization, standardization, and normalization of deputies work. For example, members of the Standing Committee communicate with deputies. At present, 156 members of the NPC Standing Committee have direct communication with 439 deputies to the National People's Congress. Various special committees and working committees have also established a mechanism for directly connecting with deputies, basically achieving full connection coverage of grassroots deputies. Second, the breadth and depth of deputies' participation are expanded in the work of the Standing Committee and special committees. NPC deputies are invited to observe meetings of the Standing Committee, and a system of observing deputies' symposium has been created for the 13th NPC Standing Committee, in which the chairman of the Standing Committee and vice-chairmen participate in the symposium, communicate face-to-face with the deputies, and listen to opinions and suggestions. Up to now, 16 symposiums have been held, and more than 730 deputies have participated in the symposiums. More than 530 opinions and suggestions put forward have also been handed over to relevant departments, and the deputies have received responses. Deputies were organized to participate in the Standing Committee's legislative research, law enforcement inspections, and other activities, while important draft laws, plans, and budgets were sent to the deputies for comments, and the opinions and suggestions of the deputies were carefully heard and adopted. Third, in accordance with the requirements of "high-quality content and high-quality handling," the Standing Committee handled 4,648 proposals and 84,028 suggestions put forward by deputies, which equals to the total number of proposals and suggestions made by deputies in the past five years since the debut of the 13th NPC Standing Committee. The Standing Committee has responded to and implemented every proposal and suggestion and has promoted the resolution of a number of outstanding issues of common concern for the people. Fourth, the Standing Committee organizes the NPC deputies to conduct research and inspections every year, supports the NPC deputies to participate in the activities of the deputies' stations and the deputies' liaison station nearby, closely communicates with the people, promotes the resolution of outstanding issues of concern to the people, and strives to ensure that it will respond to what the people are calling for. Fifth, the training of deputies has been further systematic, standardized, and professional. The Standing Committee carefully tailored a variety of training courses for deputies and vigorously promoted the construction of the NPC online academy. At present, more than 150 courses have been recorded and put online by the virtual academy, and more than 2,500 NPC deputies have participated in online learning. Over the past 10 years, 43 training sessions for NPC deputies have been held, and a total of more than 20,000 deputies have participated in the training, which has effectively improved the deputies' ability to perform their duties and boost their efficiency. Thank you.
