What they say

Chen Kaige

, CPPCC National Committee member and a film director

A nation's film industry has to develop to become strong. Yet a film's soul lies in its quality, not in industrialization. We are so proud of the 40,000 cinema screens that are now in China, but in a way they are just like pans in a kitchen - and filmmakers are chefs, not pan makers. China's film industry boasts high-tech equipment but the content still lags behind. Filmmakers should respect their audiences by creating good work.

Gong Ke, NPC deputy and president of Nankai University

It doesn't make sense to criticize the increasing number of academic papers that are being published, especially the influential high-end ones, as they showcase China's improved scientific research ability. It's common knowledge that such papers are major indicators of academic research achievement. Plagiarism is another issue altogether, however, and plagiarized papers should be rooted out.

What they say

Guo Qiyong, NPC deputy and vice-president of China Medical University

Hospitals are only part of the reason that the number of disputes between doctors and patients has increased in recent years. A misunderstanding among patients that doctors can cure all diseases is also to blame. In the past, hospitals put patients first, but we should build a new relationship with treatment at its core. Doctors and patients should work together to fight the same enemy - disease.

What they say


Mai Kangsen, NPC deputy and academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering

Considering China's increasingly strained marine resources, we should learn from other countries' experiences and bring in a fishing quota system as soon as possible. In 2000, the idea of bringing in a quota system was put forward when the Fisheries Law was being revised. However, no detailed rules and regulations have been drafted yet and no supporting measures have been taken.

What they say

Zhou Tao, CPPCC National Committee member and TV anchor

It's important to provide sex education to young students, no matter whether it's in school or at home. Parents should broach the subject at an early age because children are growing up faster now than ever before. However, the type of education should be tailored to suit the child's age, maturity and stage of development.

What they say


Zhang Kangkang, CPPCC National Committee member and vice-chairman of the China Writers Association

Visiting bookstores is not just about buying books. From browsing the titles on show to thumbing through the pages, immersing oneself in books is a cultural experience. It's totally different from clicking on a link and reading the text on screen. However, we are gradually losing this experience, which is a shame.
