It's a regular activity for Su Bin, a national political adviser, to reach out to grassroots workers and listen to their voices as he forms his suggestions for the country's top political advisory body with a focus on better protection for the rights and interests of workers in new forms of employment.

One recent visit took place during the past Spring Festival holiday when many couriers and deliverymen kept working as usual. At a rest station for delivery riders in Beijing, Su took advantage of the workers' lunch time to learn about their situations and collect suggestions.

"More rest stations for couriers and deliverymen are welcomed and the locations should be easy to find," said deliveryman Han Zhipeng.

"Everyday meals are affordable, but what burdens me most is the housing rent. I hope there can be more preferential policies to ease our rent burden or more affordable rental houses," said other riders.

Sitting together with dozens of deliverymen at the meal table, Su listened carefully and promised them he would bring their concerns and suggestions to discussion during the annual gathering of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, which will open on March 4 this year.

As a work habit, Su never uses notebook in front of the grassroots workers. Instead, he keeps the points in head and notes them down afterwards.

"It might make them hesitate to share their true thoughts and feelings," Su explained.
