China unveils structural reforms plan for state institutions

BEIJING - Leaders of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on Saturday discussed a structural reform plan of the Party and state institutions.

The Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee met to revise the draft and decided to submit it to the third plenary session of the 19th CPC Central Committee, to be held between Feb. 26 and Feb. 28, for review.

The leaders agreed that the Party and state institutions form an important part of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics and should be reformed to strengthen the Party's leadership, improve state governance and make the system efficient.

While acknowledging its contributions, the leaders said the current structure of Party and state institutions was not good enough to meet the requirements for various tasks of the new era.

The Party should resolve to tackle institutional obstacles to give full play to the advantages of China's socialist system, they said. Xinhua
