Commenting on the performance of the NPC regarding its dual function of supervision and inquiry, NPC spokeswoman Fu Ying said at a press conference on Wednesday that supervision is primarily aimed at solving problems that may arise and is not based on opposition per se. Fu praised face-to-face discussions during last year’s session regarding social welfare among delegates and the responsible government officials. The discussions led to a decrease in unemployment insurance payments by both employees and enterprises. It also resulted in a new policy that improved medical insurance for rural residents, she said.
