The first session of the 12th National Committee of the CPPCC of China will be concluded on March 12th. On March 11th, standing committee members were selected by the 12th National Committee of the CPPCC of China. Two chairmen from two enterprises listed in Hong Kong were selected as new members. They are Chairman Hui Kayan from Evergrande (3333.HK) and Chairman Dong Wenbiao from China Minsheng Banking CORP, LTD. It can be said that the Standing Committee boomed private entrepreneurs. An original report from Sina Leju follows.

Hui Kayan with Greatest Dignity

The Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference is the supreme institution for Chinese people for participating in the administration and discussion of state affairs, which is a characteristic of China. The committee affairs are organized by the standing committee of the CPPCC National Committee. Yesterday, 299 standing committee members of the 12th National Committee of the CPPCC of China were elected. They are respectively from 33 fields, such as the Communist Party of China (CPC), various democratic parties, economy, education and associations for friendship with foreign countries, etc. The National Committee of the CPPCC of China is constituted with different parties, and its members include leaders at provincial and ministerial levels. What attracted special attention in this Standing Committee is that Hui Kayan from Evergrande has been elected as a new member. Fu Chengyu, Yun Gongmin and Liu Zhenya among representatives from the field of economy are the captains of state-owned central enterprises. Hui Kayan is eye-catching, for he is the only one from the economic circle as a private entrepreneur and a member of the Communist Party of China.

Candidates were under extremely strict political examination before being selected as standing committee members of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. A standing committee member is politically qualified and outstanding in the industry. A representative of private enterprises is regarded as a model who is politically perfect, and an entrepreneur and member of the CPC thus becomes a business leader with official recognition. When he or she is boomed as a dignified businessman, his or her enterprise gains discourse power in the industry.

Private Enterprises Gain More Recognition

Private economy has long been a subject of controversy in China. When central enterprises, enjoying various convenient conditions outshine others, the small and medium-sized private enterprises face plenty of difficulties to their progress. But today, giant private enterprises rise up to be an important part of China's economy and society, and emerge as the huge rising spokesmen of private economy that desires recognition. The selection of representatives of private enterprises as standing committee members is regarded as the State's confirmation to the development of private economy, which will help private enterprises gain precious political resources to catch up with the state-owned enterprises in terms of market competitiveness and risk resistance capacity.
