The first Press Conference of the Third Session of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) was held today. LYU Xinhua, the spokesman of the session introduced the major arrangement of the session and major work of the CPPCC National Committee in 2014, and took questions from the reporters.  

It is known that this year’s meeting will include three speeches. Members of the National Committee of the CPPCC will focus on comprehensively deepening the reform and give speeches on topics such as economic and ecological civilization construction, social and cultural construction, political construction, united front work and political consultative work.

When reporters asked whether Beijing and Zhang Jiakou’s bid for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games will help solve Beijing’s air pollution problem, LYU Xinhua expressed that we have fairly obvious advantages in making the bid thanks to the successful experience accumulated during the bidding process of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. But we should take further measures to deal with the problem of traffic congestion and air pollution.

According to Wang Anshun, Chairman of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games Bid Committee and Mayor of the People's Government of Beijing Municipality, the process of bidding and preparation of the Winter Olympic Games will help promote regional air pollution control. “It will be 7 years from now to the year 2022. If we speed up the Beijing Clean Air Action Plan, we can accomplish the 2030 goal of seeing blue sky and clean air ahead of schedule. ”

LYU Xinhua expressed that the acceleration of air pollution control will not only benefit the over 100 million resident population in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Area, but also have positive influence on other areas. Other parts in the country will speed up the process of air pollution control and there will be spillover effect on neighboring countries. LYU Xinhua believed that the International Olympic Committee will take the above factors into full consideration and make Beijing and Zhang Jiakou the host cities of the Winter Olympic Games. We are looking forward to keeping the Olympic Blue.

When answering the questions related with the biweekly consultation forum, LYU Xinhua expressed that the biweekly consultation forum is a new consultation form of the 12th National Committee of the CPPCC. After over 1 year’s exploration and practice, it has become a regular platform as well as an important brand of consultation and democracy of the CPPCC. Last year, 19 consultation activities related with diffusion of productivity surplus, employment environment of college graduates, nuclear power and clean energy were held. The CPPCC Members’ opinions have been sent to the CPC Central Committee and the State Council truthfully and rapidly. Many suggestions have been carried out and produced effective results.

It is known that the secretariat of this year’s meeting has received 945 proposals and 337 speeches.
