BEIJING -- Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) members gathered Tuesday to call for efforts on innovation during a consultation session on innovation-driven development in Beijing.

The session, held by the National Committee of the CPPCC, was attended by Wang Yang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the CPPCC National Committee.

Wang stressed the importance of putting innovation as the primary driving force behind development and promoting innovation-driven development via consultation sessions.

While hailing achievements China has made in innovation-driven development strategy since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, CPPCC members also pointed out some weaknesses, such as an imperfect scientific management mechanism, weak fundamental research and lacking control on key and core technology.

Some CPPCC members proposed strengthening fundamental research by giving more stable support to long-term innovative research.

They also called for stepping up building innovation capacity in the central and western regions and encouraging all kinds of international cooperations on innovation.
