The fifth session of 12th Guangdong Provincial Committee of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) opened in Guangzhou at 9:00 am on Jan 19th, and will conclude on Jan 21th. Over the past year, Guangdong CPPCC received 1061 proposals, 871 of which were finally filed, announced on the fifth session.

Wang Rong, chairman of CPPCC Guangdong Committee, delivered the annual work report on behalf of the Standing Committee of the 12th CPPCC Guangdong Provincial Committee.

According to Wang's remarks, Guangdong CPPCC has made progress promoting high-quality economic and social development through political consultations. 

For instance, to promote the development of the Guangdong-Macao In-Depth Cooperation Zone in Hengqin and the Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Modern Service Industry Cooperation Zone, Guangdong CPPCC members have made suggestions around the zones' strategic positioning and development goals.

The members also had field researches in 9 cities in the Pearl River Delta, for collecting advice of various local departments, Hong Kong-funded and Macao-funded enterprises, then provided a high-quality report as a decision-making reference for the provincial government.

Political consultations also play an important role in improving people's livelihood covering medical care, health, culture and other issues. For instance, Guangdong CPPCC paid high attention to food safety issues, and listed a series of proposals on "improving the food traceability system and strengthening food safety supervision" as key proposals.

Guangdong CPPCC has conducted special research on promoting the development of non-state-owned museums in the GBA, and put forward suggestions on optimizing urban planning, implementing tax incentives, and revitalizing cultural relics resources, so as to promote soft power in the GBA.

In 2022, Guangdong CPPCC will further support the development of the GBA and the two cooperation zones, to make proposals including to deepen the rules connection between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, to promote the development of the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Cooperation Zone for Technology and Innovation at the Lok Ma Chau Loop and to continue the overall development plan of Hengqin.

More valuable advice should be sought, focusing on strengthening scientific and technological strength, developing digital economy and promoting carbon neutrality.
