More Effort Urged on Population, Resources, Environment Development

China's top political advisor has called on his counterparts to contribute more on the country's population, resources and environmental development.

Jia Qinglin, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), made the remarks on Wednesday when he met representatives of the CPPCC's national and local committees of population, resources and environment.

He said it is a primary political task at present and for a period of time, to carefully study and implement the essence of the recent 17th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

Jia urged members of the CPPCC's national and local committees of population, resources and environment to incorporate the essence of the Party Congress into its work, especially the content on enhancing the savings of energy resources and the protection of eco-environment, as well as on conservation culture.

The CPPCC has special advantages in building an energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly society, Jia said. He called on CPPCC members to earnestly investigate and study energy issues and raise valuable proposals and advice to the Party and government.
