Premier on government institutional reform
Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said Sunday that without successful political restructuring, there were no successful economic reform. He mentioned that he set three objectives on government institutional reform since the first day of his premiership.
Wen cited the first goal as the establishment of a scientific and democratic decision-making mechanism, including a group decision-making system and consultations with experts and professional people.
The second goal is to administrate the country according to laws, he said. "We must prompt the government to administrate the country in line with law, build the clean and honest government, and pursue the combination of the government's power and responsibility."
The third goal is to accept supervision from every corner of the society, including the supervision from the National People's Congress and the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, and governments must hear and solicit opinions and views from people and general public, the premier said.
