BEIJING - Wang Yang, China's top political advisor, Monday urged non-communist parties and organizations to conduct better field studies and offer useful advice.

Wang, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), chaired a seminar about the field studies on rural development conducted by some non-communist parties.

Acknowledging the practical field studies made before, Wang encouraged the parties and organizations to thoroughly understand the policies of the Communist Party of China Central Committee to conduct necessary research and produce quality advice.

He called on authorities to support these studies, actively respond to the calls of non-communist parties and the public and be open to reasonable proposals.

Leaders of four non-communist parties and the All-China Federation of Industry & Commerce and a representative of people without party affiliation addressed the seminar about their studies on rural development, according to a statement issued after the meeting.

They made suggestions about rural governance, protection of villagers' rights, the rural health care network, environmental protection, and participation of private businesses in rural development, according to the statement.
