Special Report:   2009 NPC & CPPCC Sessions

A political advisor proposed that, on the year of celebrating the 60th anniversary of the founding of People’s Republic of China, one thirds or one sixth of country’s 4 trillion yuan economic stimulus package should be used as red packets granting to the whole nation directly.

He Xingliang, a deputy from Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, presented his suggestion on the 11th National People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) session in Beijing on March 10.

A red packet is a red envelope with money in it. It is a Chinese tradition to present red packets on social and family occasions such as a wedding reception or Chinese New Year.
