Mo Rong, CPPCC National Committee member, president of the Chinese Academy of Labor and Social Security

Having a job is the most important matter for the average person, and this has led the government to increase efforts to boost employment in recent years. We have diversified employment services for different groups of job seekers. For example, job-seeking and career planning consultancy are available to college students and graduates, which can help them to get more sound knowledge of their personal skills and clearer career plans. The government has encouraged some departments and State-owned companies to expand their job recruitment plans in recent years, and the increasing number of grassroots job openings has also offered more opportunities to young job seekers. I went to the countryside in northwestern Shaanxi province last month, and met a young man in his 30s. He was in poor financial condition and left his hometown to find work. He then got involved in a government-supported entrepreneurship training course and successfully shook off poverty through hard work.

Wu Beili, CPPCC National Committee member, researcher at the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica at the Chinese Academy of Sciences

In recent years, I have witnessed the public giving more attention to major and rare diseases. Promoting the health of all people requires concerted efforts from colleges, research centers and medical institutes. Chinese authorities are not only striving to ensure that patients have access to medications, but are also emphasizing affordability. The development of domestic novel drugs has been bolstered by price negotiations with drugmakers and constant adjustments of the national medical reimbursement list. A large number of drugs for cancer and rare diseases have thus been added to the national list, and more than 80 percent of innovative drugs have been included in less than two years after gaining market approval.

Liu Ruiling, CPPCC National Committee member, general manager of the International Land Port in Hebei province

A foreign trade company in Shijiazhuang (capital of Hebei) specializing in children's toys and electric bicycles previously faced logistical challenges, as their exports relied solely on sea freight. Containers they needed to ship their products had to be transported from the seaport back to the factory for product loading before being sent back to the port for export, which led to a significant increase in logistics costs. With the establishment of the international land port in Shijiazhuang, the company relies on the China-Europe freight train service, which has saved more than 2 million yuan ($277,800) in logistics services.
