C100 Delegation Calls on Chinese Leaders in Beijing

Wu Bangguo, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC), was among the Chinese leaders who met privately with Committee members last November, when the Committee held its Greater China conference in Beijing. Covered extensively in the Chinese media, the C-100 delegation included Chairman John L. Fugh, H.K. Chang, Pehong Chen, Leroy Chiao, Henry Lee, Kai-Fu Lee, Cheng Li, Howard Li, Xiaobo Lu, Jenny Ming, Henry Tang, Executive Director Alice Mong, and Public Affairs Director An Ping. The NPC Chairman welcomed suggestions from the Committee delegation, saying that the members understood both cultures. At each meeting, Committee members gave a preview of “Hope and Fear,” the C-100 mirror survey released in December.

Wu told the delegation that the Communist Party had set itself two important tasks after the 17th Party Congress in October: social justice and balancing economic development. “For the moment, when people refer to China’s development, they say that Chinese cities are on a equal levels with European cities; but the development level of Chinese villages is similar to that of African villages.”

The Committee also met with NPC Vice Chairman Sheng Huaren and had a roundtable discussion with Lu Congmin, Vice Chairman of the NPC Foreign Affairs Committee and other NPC members. Liu Qi, Chairman of the Beijing Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games, thanked C-100 for supporting Beijing’s bid to host the 2008 Olympiad. Other leaders visited were Liu Yandong, Vice Chairman, Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, who gave a briefing on the 17th Party Congress; Cai Wu, Director of the State Council Information Office; and Wang Chao, Assistant Minister, Ministry of Commerce. Wang said that of the 50,000 American companies that have invested in China, over half have turned a profit. He said that China took product safety seriously and had formed a special task to deal with it.
