On behalf of the Central Committee of the Revolutionary Committee of the Chinese Kuomintang, CPPCC member Li Wuwei said the Taiwan issue concerns China's reunification and the core interests of the country.

Li said the non-Communist parties should make efforts to benefit the people across the Taiwan Straits and sovereignty and territorial integrity. He says the non-Communist parties should uphold the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations.

CPPCC member Li Wuwei said, "We hope a full-scale investigation will be carried out into the condition and the problems of Taiwan companies in the mainland. It will provide a better environment and conditions for Taiwan businesspeople in the mainland."

And CPPCC member Yu Sun-Say from Hong Kong suggested the Special Administrative Region should strengthen its role as an international market while seeking to merge with the mainland's economy.

CPPCC member Yu Sun-say said, "The preparation of the twelfth five year plan will start soon. It would be useful to call for the participation of Hong Kong professionals in drawing up the national development plan that begins in 2011. "

CPPCC member Li Lijun proposed a complete official accountability system that puts officials under the oversight of the powers of political morality, discipline and law.

On behalf of the National Women's Association, CPPCC member Zhang Shiping called for more support for children in rural areas, whose parents work in urban areas. She said the urban and rural development should be balanced and public management service should be strengthened. This would include setting up more boarding schools for those children.
