BEIJING/CHONGQING - A total of 9,235 suggestions made by national lawmakers have been distributed to 213 organizations to be processed, according to a meeting on the handling of these suggestions held in Beijing on Monday.

The suggestions were submitted by deputies to the 14th National People's Congress (NPC), China's top legislature, during the second session of the 14th NPC held in March. Among all the suggestions, 20 were identified as priorities.

A large number of the suggestions focus on issues such as new quality productive forces, emerging and future industries, the business environment and the digital governance system, which are closely related to the current key tasks in the country's socio-economic development.

Li Hongzhong, member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and vice-chairman of the NPC Standing Committee, attended the meeting and delivered a speech, urging the organizations to do their best to process each of the suggestions and pool wisdom and strength from all those involved for building China into a modern socialist country in all respects.

Also on Monday, the top legislature pledged to enhance the recording and review of normative documents to ensure the effective enforcement of China's Constitution and laws

He called on the organizations to raise their political awareness, soundly summarize the experience in processing the suggestions, and take concrete action to convert the suggestions into policies, measures and results in the country's high-quality development. 

Also on Monday, the top legislature pledged to enhance the recording and review of normative documents to ensure the effective enforcement of China's Constitution and laws.

The Standing Committee of the NPC will focus on reviewing normative documents, and will overhaul those that contravene China's Constitution and relevant laws, Shen Chunyao, director of the Legislative Affairs Commission of the NPC Standing Committee, said at a seminar held in southwest China's Chongqing municipality.

Shen said the move also aims to improve the NPC Standing Committee's capabilities in identifying, researching and resolving problems related to recording and review work.

Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in 2012, the country's top legislature has promoted the revision or abolition of over 25,000 normative documents, effectively safeguarding the authority of China's Constitution and laws, as well as the integrity of the rule of law in China.
