BEIJING - Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Wednesday held a symposium to solicit opinions from leaders of non-communist political parties on the draft of the annual government work report.

The participants offered suggestions in a wide range of issues, such as administrative reform, agriculture, and pensions.

Chen Changzhi, chair of the Central Committee of the China National Democratic Construction Association, said efforts should be made to improve the multi-tier capital market system to support the real economy.

Yan Junqi, chair of the Central Committee of the China Association for Promoting Democracy, said obstacles to transregional cooperation should be lifted to implement the "belt and road" initiatives and other cooperation arrangements.

Li exchanged ideas on major topics with the group and expressed his thanks to non-communist parties and the All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, as well as personages without party affiliation for their long-term support of the government's work.

A number of senior officials including Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli also attended the symposium.

Premier Li will deliver the finalized work report at the annual session of the National People's Congress in March.

China has eight non-communist political parties that participate in state affairs under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC). Under the multi-party cooperation system, the CPC and non-communist parties work together and supervise each other.
