SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) ZHANG HONGXIANG, NPC Deputy
 
"When it comes to rural revitalization, I think the key is to seek opportunities and map out directions for the industries."
 
SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) HU WEI, CPPCC Member
 
"Only when more young people who left rural areas, including migrant workers, soldiers, and other talents return to their hometowns can rural development takes off."
 
SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) ZHOU HONGYI, CPPCC Member
 
"For many tech start-ups, it is unrealistic to rely on bank loans in the early stage. Their only option is to seek investment. So investment should be greatly encouraged. In addition to tax cuts, we must open up the capital market."
 
SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) CHEN GUOYING, NPC Deputy
 
"In fact, the biggest problem for entrepreneurs is how to combine technological achievements with large-scale commercial use and with the capital market."
 
SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) LIU ZHENG, NPC Deputy
 
"Reform must be based on law. Things will probably go wrong without laws. On the other hand, some of the good practices of reform and opening-up should be written into laws so that they can further unleash their values."
 
SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) ZHONG YING, CPPCC Member
 
"I hope that our financial market will be stable without too much turbulence, and that our financial institutions can better serve the enterprises, and the virtual economy can better integrate with the real economy."
 
SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) LIU YONGHAO, CPPCC Member
 
"In the transformation and upgrading of enterprises, new firms are the combination of new mechanisms, new talents, new technologies, new consumptions and new responsibilities. By following this path, we'll see remarkable progress in a few years."
 
SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) CHEN XIAOHONG, CPPCC Member
 
"We can further deepen the reform to further stimulate the innovation drives of the scientific personnel, better manage scientific research funds, and facilitate the project approval process. In particular, how to promote the integration of industries and academic researches in some major projects."
 
SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) LI HEYUE, CPPCC Member
 
"To further open up, we should boost the confidence of the world nations, and provide foreign investors with new opportunities. We should create a better investment environment through legislation. A law-based environment is the best for business. We should protect the legitimate rights and interests of foreign capital."
 
SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) HUA YAWEI, CPPCC Member
 
"We should establish a medical system that put prevention first while integrating prevention with treatment ."
 
SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) LU CHUANJIAN, CPPCC Member
 
"Hong Kong and Macao are China's windows of reform and opening up as it increasingly goes global. In building the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Chinese Traditional Medicine can also play a role in the innovation hub."
 
SOUNDBITE (CHINESE) LIU YILIANG, NPC Deputy
 
"We need to step up efforts to diversify the economy and industries. One of the key points is to strengthen regional cooperation and expand our development space."
