New delegates promise better opinions

新代表允诺更好的建议

By You Nuo (China Daily)
Updated: 2007-03-12 07:18

With the present crop of National People's Congress (NPC) deputies currently in their last year of duty, hopefully some of their less worthy opinions won't be echoed by their heirs next year.

全国人民代表大会(NPC)代表......(我不会翻译

Some of the opinions from this year's "two meetings" the NPC and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) were disappointing.

今年两会——全国人民代表大会(NPC)和全国政治协商会议(CPPCC)的一些建议是令人失望的。

Compared with the huge amount of work still facing this rapidly changing country, and many of the well-researched policy papers furnished by other participants, they were personal, petty and marginal.

与许多仍面临着城市快速发展的工作和许多由其他参与者提供的满意度调查政策报告相比较,他们是针对个人的,小规模的和边缘的。

Proposals for changing the date or name of a hallmark day, or for assigning an honorary title to a mountain or flower, are the stuff of backpage columns in newspapers' weekend editions. It may be fun to read them, but I really can't see why they need bringing up at the national political forum when there are more serious matters to be dealt with.

改变特定日子的日期或名字;为山、花取有意义的名字的提议是报纸的周末版上后面专栏的素材。这读起来可能蛮有趣的,但我真的不能理解在有更严重的事务要处理时,为什么他们还要在国家政治会议上提出这种提议。

Consultation and communication are important for clarifying issues and solving problems. But if a consultative forum is not used for issue-oriented debate, but to parade individual's interests, the forum is not doing its work.

协商和交流对澄清和解决问题是重要的。但如果协商会议不是以“问题为导向的辩论”,而是炫耀个人的重要性,那么这个会议就没有起到作用。

Is there any likelihood, I am wondering, for "the two meetings" to release to the public, following the closure of each session, a record of what all participants did how many opinions they raised and what they were about. This may be a useful way of helping them focus.

我想知道,两会有没有可能面向公众,随着每一次会议的结束,出一份关于所有与会者做了什么、提了多少意见、将要做什么的报告。这可能有利于公众关注焦点。

Hopefully the new group due to join the more than 2,000 deputies next year will encourage other members to get their priorities in order.

According to a proposal from the NPC Standing Committee, the committee's leading group, new deputies representing the nation's migrant workers will take part in next year's session.

Frequently, these menial workers are victims of urban prejudice. Many also face bureaucratic problems in both their hometowns and adopted cities.

Employers often fail to pay them on time and some are laid off without ever receiving their wages.

But despite the difficulties they face, the migrants have contributed an enormous amount to the country. From Shenzhen to Shanghai to Beijing, all China's big cities owe their rising skylines to migrant workers.

They are also playing a crucial role in all the new manufacturing zones, like those clustered in the Pearl and Yangtze river deltas, or around Beijing and Tianjin.

Having migrant workers' voices heard in the national policy-making forum reflects the nation's gratitude to this hard-working section of society.

Many important reforms will begin in the coming years, designed to build a social security umbrella, reform medical insurance, improve the quality of education, strengthen the rule of law and reform the urban real estate market.

Having experienced so much hardship, migrant workers can offer the NPC a fresh perspective on society's problems, helping make these reforms more effective.

It will be interesting to see where the new delegates are drawn from - the electronic factory towns of the Pearl River Delta? Shanghai's Pudong? Or Beijing's Olympic construction sites?

Even more interesting will be the issues they raise - labor rights? The inconvenience caused by the separate administration of urban and rural household registration? Or migrants' children's access to education?

to be continued...

New delegates promise better opinions
新代表允诺更好的建议?【opinions = 意见】

这句比较难:这是本届代表任期的最后一年,希望明年(下一届)继承他们的新代表不会再重复提出(或者照搬)[本届代表提出的] 某些没什么价值的意见。

Some of the opinions from this year's "two meetings" the NPC and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) were disappointing.

今年两会——全国人民代表大会(NPC)和全国政治协商会议(CPPCC)的一些建议是令人失望的。(opinions)

Compared with the huge amount of work still facing this rapidly changing country, and many of the well-researched policy papers furnished by other participants, they were personal, petty and marginal.

与许多仍面临着城市【?】快速发展的工作【这个日新月异的国家还需要做的大量工作】和许多由其他参与者【与会者】提供的满意度调查政策报告【基于扎实调研的政策文件】相比较,他们【是指代表吗?根据上下文,应该是上一段所说的 Some of the disappointing opinions】是针对个人的,小规模的和边缘的。【针对个人的、无关重要的、无足轻重的问题。】

不好意思,还是看不懂也,特别是语法结构

变更某节日的日期或名称的提案,以及命名某山或某花的提案,这些都是报纸周末版副刊专栏的内容。读起来也许有趣,但将它们提交国家政治会议(人大和政协会议),而不去关注许多更为严肃的事务,实在让人费解。
