BEIJING, March 22 (Xinhua) -- President Xi Jinping has called for supporting measures to implement China's new innovative, coordinated, green, open and shared development model, as outlined in the Five-Year Plan.
It is imperative that coordination is improved to ensure the efficient implementation of the new model, as it plays an integral part in China's journey to achieving "a moderately prosperous society by 2020," Xi told a meeting of the Central Leading Group for Deepening Overall Reform on Tuesday.
Pilot reforms should be systematic and well organized to ensure new mechanisms are tested thoroughly, according to a statement released after the meeting.
The statement also noted that an overall evaluation of existing reforms was needed.
The meeting approved a series of policy documents including those on lawyers, ecological compensation, poverty eradication, child health care and investment.
Most Party and government agencies, civil associations and state-owned firms need to have legal advisers, public sector lawyers or corporate lawyers, who should be given a greater role in promoting the rule of law, the statement said.
The ecological compensation mechanism must be improved, expanding its coverage and bringing up the compensation standard, it said.
Medical personnel should be increased and their service quality should be enhanced to address the shortage in child health care resources.
There were also calls for a unified system to deal with investors equally and reduced restrictions on private investment.
