The National People's Congress (NPC), China's legislature, concluded its annual session Wednesday morning.

Zhang Dejiang, chairman of the NPC Standing Committee who presided over the closing meeting, said the session reviewed and approved the outline of the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020) on economic and social development, which requires the implementation of the concept of innovative, coordinated, green, open and shared development.

Among 2,859 NPC deputies who attended the closing meeting, 2,778 legislators voted for the 13th Five-Year Plan outline, 2,814 for the government work report, 2,600 for the work report of the Supreme People's Court, 2,560 for the work report of the Supreme People's Procuratorate, and 2,636 for the Charity Law.

Others that the lawmakers approved included the yearly economic and social development plan, the yearly government budget and the work report of the NPC Standing Committee.

In his closing remarks, Zhang said, people's congresses should play an active role in completing the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects by 2020, while exercising their duty.

Zhang called on NPC deputies to enhance their sense of responsibility, develop close contacts with the people, promptly respond to the people's needs and accept the people's supervision.

The lawmakers also approved the resignation of NPC Standing Committee member Huang Runqiu.
