III. Making new progress in deputy services, external exchanges and self-improvement
Making full use of the role of deputies is an important aspect of upholding and improving the system of people's congresses. We will continue to strengthen services for deputies, conscientiously handle the bills and suggestions deputies submitted to this session of the NPC, and strive to make the handling process one of improving the Standing Committee's work and prodding relevant parties to improve their work and solve problems. We will continue to invite deputies to participate in activities of the Standing Committee and special committees, make arrangements for activities for them when the NPC is not in session, and help them maintain close ties with their constituencies and the people so that they can better participate in the administration of state affairs.
We will make full use of the NPC's characteristics and advantages in developing foreign contacts in keeping with our country's basic policies and general arrangements for its diplomatic work, continue to improve the mechanism for regular exchanges with foreign congresses and parliaments, expand friendly contacts with them, and actively participate in the activities of international and regional parliamentary organizations to help the international community better understand China's basic national conditions, development path, and foreign and domestic policies and create a favorable international environment for our country's economic and social development.
We will continue to strengthen self-improvement of the Standing Committee, keep a firm grasp of the correct political orientation of the work of the NPC, resolutely implement the central leadership's major decisions and arrangements, stress politics, keep the larger picture in mind, and maintain discipline. We will forge close ties with the people, carry out thorough investigations and studies, hold lectures on special topics, strengthen our sense of responsibility and mission in performing our duties in accordance with the law, and do all our work more enthusiastically. We will carry out a series of activities to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the current Constitution and conscientiously review our positive experiences and practices in upholding and improving the system of people's congresses and successfully carrying out the work of the NPC under the new circumstances. We will continue to strengthen contacts with local people's congresses and work with them in developing socialist democracy and the socialist democratic legal system, and we will further improve the competency of employees of NPC bodies.
