Tuo Qingming, NPC deputy, head of Ya'an education examinations authority, Sichuan province


I suggest that the nation offers free medical services to children under 6 years old and seniors above 75 years old. The free medical services for children will improve their health, the quality of the population and the birthrate, while the free services for seniors can raise their awareness of the need to receive medical treatment in a timely manner and lower their families' medical cost burdens.


Dong Mingzhu, NPC deputy, chairwoman of Gree Electric Appliances


I again suggest that the nation raise the threshold of individual income tax to 10,000 yuan ($1,400) per month from 5,000 yuan. Since various allowances and exemptions, including those related to education and elder care, have in essence lifted the threshold to around 10,000 yuan, officially raising the threshold will reduce the cost of inspecting the qualifications for such exemptions and reduce falsifications.


Lyu Guoquan, CPPCC National Committee member, director of the general office of the All-China Federation of Trade Unions


I suggest that the legislature include the right of workers to "rest during off hours" in relevant laws. Some employers require employees to join work groups on instant messaging platforms and arrange work during their off hours, violating their right to rest and privacy. Legislation on the issue can better deter employers from illegally arranging for extra work after hours. The nation should also issue explanatory documents to define extra work done online and necessary compensation.


Zhou Shihong, CPPCC National Committee member, partner at Grandall Law Firm Hefei, Anhui province


Skyscrapers are a product of the development of modern construction technology, yet they also bring risks and costs, such as in disaster prevention and the mitigation of fires, as well as in the costs of energy consumption and demolition after they're no longer in use. If the drawbacks and risks outweigh the advantages, we shouldn't build so many high-rise and ultra high-rise buildings. In addition to rules regulating skyscrapers in metropolises, high-rise buildings between 27 meters and 100 meters in small and medium-sized cities urgently need regulations and restrictions due to the large number of them and the increase in the pace of their development. Legislators and supervising departments should roll out rules to strictly restrict the construction of high-rise buildings and ban ultra high-rise ones.
