BEIJING -- Members of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) convened a bi-weekly seminar on Friday to discuss strengthening patriotic education among young people in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) and the Macao SAR. 

The seminar, held by the CPPCC National Committee, was presided over by Wang Yang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the CPPCC National Committee. 

Strengthening patriotic education among young people in the two SARs is an important work that concerns the long-term stability and security of Hong Kong and Macao, Wang said. 

Wang called for focusing on solving problems and taking targeted measures in conducting the work. 

All sectors should be encouraged to offer care, support and help to young people in the two SARs, he said. 

Ten CPPCC members and special representatives invited to the meeting put forward their suggestions, while nearly 80 CPPCC members voiced their opinions via a mobile platform. 

The CPPCC members stressed the significance and imperative of strengthening patriotic education among young people in the two SARs. 

They suggested establishing in the two regions education systems suited to the "one country, two systems" principle to ensure that their education sectors are managed by patriots. 

The CPPCC members suggested reforming the school curriculums, textbooks and teachers' training and evaluation in Hong Kong and Macao. 

They also suggested strengthening media management to foster good social atmosphere for the healthy growth of the young generation, as well as improving the policy support for young people in the two regions to study, work and live in the mainland.
