As pointed out by Huang Qiang, the CPPCC is a kind of institutional arrangement with Chinese characteristics, and the CPPCC proposals pave a key road to steer decision making to be more democratic and scientific. All government agencies should pay high attention to the proposal handling process, show empathy and shoulder responsibilities to promote proposals to be implemented in a down-to-earth manner, so as to improve handling quality and make members of the CPPCC Sichuan Provincial Committee and the public reassured and satisfied.
