BEIJING, Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- China's State Council on Wednesday sent 31 inspection teams across the country to make sure major policies issued by central authorities are being effectively implemented.

The priorities include the work on the "three tough battles" of controlling risk, reducing poverty and tackling pollution, rural revitalization strategy, expanding domestic demand and promoting opening-up, cutting red tape, lowering fees and taxes, improving the business climate, innovation, job creation, health and elderly care.

Each team will stay at one provincial area for 10 to 12 days, conducting open talks and private interviews with people in communities, hospitals, schools, businesses, research institutes, and government service halls. The inspection teams will also open social media accounts to receive complaints from the public.

The State Council said it will take follow-up measures to address the issues found during the inspection.
