13th five-year plan, to be reviewed at the upcoming parliamentary
session, will be "good news" to Hong Kong and Macao, a spokesperson with
the national political advisory body said on Wednesday.
The leadership has placed great importance to and high expectation on
the role of Hong Kong and Macao while planning comprehensive development
of China, Wang Guoqing, spokesperson for the annual session of the
Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National
Committee, said at a press conference ahead of the session.
Wang assured that the national plan for the years between 2016 and 2020
will consider the needs of people in Hong Kong and Macao.
The proposal on the 13th five-year plan on national economy and social
development put forwards last year at a key meeting of the Communist
Party of China Central Committee made clear that Hong Kong and Macao
should play unique roles in economic growth and opening up of the whole
country, he said.
