At Tuesday's meeting, the NPC deputies adopted a name list of chairpersons, vice chairpersons and members of the NPC Constitution and Law Committee and the NPC Financial and Economic Affairs Committee.
With an overall design to promote coordinated economic, political, cultural, social and ecological advancement and an action plan of comprehensive moves to finish the tasks of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects, deepening reform, advancing law-based governance, and strengthening the Party's self-governance, the country can have confidence that the strategic vision for developing socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era will be achieved.
According to the decision, the 13th NPC will have ten special committees, covering areas such as ethnic affairs, Constitution and law, foreign affairs, environmental protection, agriculture and rural affairs.

Over the five years since Xi was elected general secretary of the CPC Central Committee at the 18th Party National Congress in November 2012, much has been achieved in economic development, social progress and diplomacy.
Xi has fully displayed his farsightedness and his ability to design long-term strategy and demonstrate that he always maintains people's interests as the focus of his work. His deep concern for people's well-being has strengthened the cohesion of the Chinese nation, and has become the mainstay of the Party, the country and its people.
