Jia Qinglin, member of the Politburo Standing Committee and Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), addressed the subject of National United Front Work in Beijing at a national conference held on December 22, 2009.
Jia emphasized that the domestic and international environments have changed significantly in recent times. He stressed that the United Front Work should be carried out in these two environments and be a factor in national development. He continued that the United Front Work should assist and support non state-owned enterprises, given that the Chinese nation is putting into operation major industry adjustments and “employing a broad” strategy.
Jia also urged that race and religious issues be brought under Party control.
