Recognizing that people build institutions and providing greater resources to professional training for those who will design, implement and manage them;

Addressing the growing inequality in society, particularly in terms of access to quality education;

Reforming China's pension system to meet the needs of the country's rapidly aging population;

Finding suitable employment and providing sufficient education and training for those who have had to re-locate as a result of urbanization policies;

Ensuring the health and safety of all citizens by developing food quality and environmental regulations;

Effectively enforcing laws by continuing to combat corruption;

Developing a more independent and better trained judiciary needs to ensure that rule of law is implemented and that political pressures do not result in undue influence;

Training legal, prosecutorial and administrative personnel so that they are internationally competitive and informed about and sensitive to rule of law issues;

Developing higher educational standards for law schools and other education institutions so that China's future professionals and citizens will know about and value the importance of rule of law.

Looking back on what China has achieved over the past 65 years, Chinese citizens should feel both proud and optimistic as they tackle the reforms that enable them to strengthen rule of law and build a legal framework to support China's long-term growth and development.
