Shanghai plans to present 191 proposals

MORE than 100 CPPCC members from Shanghai will present their proposals, especially on issues like epidemic prevention and control and public health system, at the annual session of the nation’s top political advisory body, which started yesterday.

The 104-member delegation left for Beijing on Tuesday, carrying with them 191 proposals. They are scheduled to deliver eight speeches, according to the CPPCC Shanghai Committee.

Zhang Endi, vice chairman of CPPCC Shanghai Committee, plans to propose improvements to the public health emergency supply system, which is a critical resource during the fight against novel coronavirus.

Zhang said the storage, transport and management of public health emergency supplies require cooperation of different authorities. He believes a diversified and scientific model should be set up based on the supplies’ characteristics, amount and lifespan.

Zhang further stated that an information-sharing platform for emergency supplies can be established. The supplies can be traced and managed on this platform, which can boost efficiency, especially by working out lower transportation costs by optimizing allocation and simplifying circulation processes.

A national unified emergency plan for the public purchase of supplies and services can also be set up, Zhang said. Collaboration with third-party e-commerce platforms and logistics companies should be strengthened.

Cai Wei, vice chairman of the Central Committee of the Chinese Peasants and Workers Democratic Party — one of China’s eight non-communist parties — also highlighted the shortcomings in the public health safety system. He plans to suggest that the legislation of a public health safety law should be treated with urgency and the cooperation between disease prevention and control institutions and hospitals should be enhanced.

He mentioned that labor and employment policies should be designed to tackle labor problems during a pandemic to prevent large-scale layoffs.

Lu Hongbing, vice president of the All China Lawyers Association, pointed out to conflicts among subdistricts, neighborhood committees, property owners’ committees and property management companies during the pandemic. He plans to make a proposal for setting up a community governance model with cooperation from all the parties.

With such a model, during emergencies, neighborhood committees can collect feedbacks from property owners and report them to subdistricts, while property management companies can implement the epidemic prevention measures.
