BEIJING, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- The 12th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) on Tuesday held a consultation symposium to pool wisdom from its members on economic development.
Dealing with the current macro-economy situation, the biweekly consultation symposium of the CPPCC National Committee, presided over by chairman Yu Zhengsheng, targeted topics such as steady growth, economic reform and maintaining the sound momentum of economic development.
According to Yu, the consultation symposium, held Tuesday for the first time, will be a regular event of the CPPCC to invite members from various fields and backgrounds -- mainly those from non-Communist parties or with no political party affiliation -- to discuss and propose ideas.
During the event, attendees expressed viewpoints on consolidating the foundation status of agriculture, industrialization and urbanization, accelerating industrial re-adjustment and economic reform.
"The biweekly consultation symposium will become a consultation platform for exchanging ideas, promoting mutual understanding, coordinating relations and uniting hearts and strengths," Yu said.
