This year marks the 75th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China and is also a crucial year for achieving the goals of the 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25), he said, urging NPC deputies to try their best to overcome difficulties and serve the people, in order to meet the public's aspiration for a better life.

Qin Baohua, an NPC deputy and a teacher from the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, said that she has long paid high attention to issues regarding education, especially in the middle school stage.

"In the process of performing my duties, I have implemented whole-process people's democracy, solicited suggestions and opinions on the balanced development of education from people at the grassroots, and brought their voices to the NPC session," she said.

"I will take the people-centered approach by increasing my visits and research, and expand my focus to other issues involving people's livelihoods, such as social insurance and nursing care services," she added.

At the second session of the 14th NPC, 298 motions put forward by NPC deputies had been submitted as of Friday noon. Of these, 292 concentrated on legislative items, with major themes including enhancing high-quality development and promoting new quality productive forces.

Many motions were made based on surveys and opinions collected from the public, showing the implementation of whole-process people's democracy, according to the session's secretariat.

In addition, the secretariat had also received more than 7,000 suggestions from NPC deputies as of Friday, mainly covering the digital economy, education, emerging businesses and opening-up.
