Guangdong province's top political advisory body has vowed to further expand exchanges this year with residents of Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao, as well as overseas Chinese.

Wang Rong, chairman of the Guangdong Provincial Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, said its members should play an active and constructive role in helping such groups start businesses and pursue scientific and technological innovation in the province.

He made his remarks while delivering the opening speech at the fifth session of the 11th CPPCC Guangdong committee, which opened in the provincial capital of Guangzhou on Tuesday.

"To this end, Guangdong's political advisers should also try to help our compatriots and overseas Chinese seek business opportunities and build platforms for doing business in the months to come," said Wang.

He said the advisory body will do more to help residents of Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, and overseas Chinese, visit Guangdong this year and attend the province's CPPCC conferences and related activities, to learn more about the Chinese mainland's achievements.

Provincial political advisers should do their best to enhance cooperation and exchanges between Guangdong and the rest of the world in the months ahead, Wang added.
