On behalf of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People’s Congress (NPC), I now present this report on its work for your deliberation.
The Year in Review
The year 2021 was a milestone in the history of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and our country. The Party celebrated the 100th anniversary of its founding and convened the sixth plenary session of the 19th Central Committee, at which the Party’s major achievements and historical experience over the past century were reviewed and its third historical resolution was adopted. Having won the critical battle against poverty on schedule, the Party officially declared success in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and achieving the First Centenary Goal, and it embarked on the new journey to build China into a modern socialist nation in all respects and achieve the Second Centenary Goal.
With great historical initiative, tremendous political courage, and a strong sense of responsibility, the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core responded calmly to changes and a pandemic of a magnitude not seen in a century and achieved new major progress in advancing all areas of the Party and country’s endeavors. This further demonstrated the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee, the boundless might amassed by more than 1.4 billion Chinese people under the Party’s leadership, and the great strengths of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and it fills us with greater confidence and resolve as we forge ahead on the new journey and make greater contributions in the new era.
2021 was also a year of particular importance in the history of the people’s congress system. The Party Central Committee held the first-ever Central People’s Congress Work Conference, where General Secretary Xi Jinping gave an important speech, providing profound answers to a number of major theoretical and practical issues concerning the development of socialist democracy with Chinese characteristics and the preservation and improvement of the people’s congress system in the new era. He described the system of people’s congresses as one of the Party’s major institutional achievements of the past century, offered a systematic explanation of the important concept of whole-process people’s democracy, and put forward the guiding thought, major principles, and main tasks for enhancing and improving the work of people’s congresses. The Party Central Committee then issued the Guidelines on Upholding and Improving the People’s Congress System and Enhancing and Improving the Work of People’s Congresses in the New Era. The Party Central Committee’s major plans and General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important speech pointed the way forward and provided us with fundamental guidance for carrying out the work of people’s congresses in the new era.
Over the past year, under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core, the NPC Standing Committee remained closely aligned with the Party Central Committee’s major decisions and plans, the people’s aspirations for a better life, and the need to modernize China’s system and capacity for governance. We performed our duties in accordance with the law and fulfilled our responsibilities as we embarked on a new journey to develop China into a modern socialist nation in all respects. Our main work of the past year was as follows.
