BEIJING, March 9 (Xinhua) -- China's top legislature will closely supervise the government's economic work this year to ensure stimulus plans to be efficiently implemented, top legislator Wu Bangguo said here Monday.

A key task for the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), the parliament, is to improve supervision to ensure implementation of major policy decisions and successful accomplishment of this year's tasks for economic and social development, said Wu.

"We will devote a great deal of effort to promoting steady and rapid economic development and transforming the pattern of economic development," Wu, chairman of the NPC Standing Committee, said when delivering a work report of the committee.

Premier Wen Jiabao on Thursday proposed to the parliament a massive economic stimulus plan, which included a 4-trillion yuan (585.5 billion U.S. dollars) two-year investment, to curb economic downturn amid global financial crisis.
