At the ongoing CPC National Congress, delegates from different parts of the country are discussing issues concerning people's well-being, including agriculture, medical service and education.
Congress delegate Zhan Yisheng said, "Technology changes their destiny."
Eight years ago, senior engineer Zhan Yisheng started dedicating himself to improving agriculture in mountainous areas of eastern Fujian province.
His new technology has given three villages in the province the title of "Home of Chestnuts".
A Fujian farmer said, "I planted 600 chestnut trees. I tried Zhan Yisheng's new technology, and I can make 1000 US dollars more a year."
Here at the party congress, Zhan once again stresses the building of new countryside.
He hopes that more talented people can join farmers to improve their agricultural technology.
Delegate Zhang Yisheng said, "New socialist countryside can be built if farmers have access to new technology."
Medical care service is also a hot topic.
A delegate from central Hubei province says there's one point in Hu Jintao's report that has left her with a deep impression.
That's building a public healthcare system covering urban and rural residents, and offering safe, effective and low-cost medical service.
She says there's now a hospital in the neighborhood where she works.
Congress delegate Wang Bo said, "We can get to the hospital within ten minutes on foot. Neighborhood residents can see doctors in time. The early treatment can also help reduce the cost."
Wang Bo adds there are also a number of healthcare centers in the neighborhood.
Retired doctors and nurses volunteered to provide advice to residents for preventing diseases.
Wang Bo says she is ready to exchange ideas with other delegates at the congress about the neighborhood hospital.
Education tops the discussion among delegates from Tibet.
From this semester on, urban and rural children in Lhasa do not have to pay for their primary and junior middle school education.
A delegate says she feels the system is more fair.
Congress delegate Deje Zhuogar said, "During the nine year compulsory education, children in agricultural and herding areas can enjoy free meals, accommodation and education fees. This is a special preferential policy to Tibet. The burden on many farmers and herdsmen can greatly be lessened."
Aside from education, the economy in the Tibetan Autonomous Region has maintained a 12 per cent increase for six consecutive years.
The Tibetan delegation says the region is pouring greater efforts into development.
