Members of democratic parties and personages without party affiliation are encouraged to give advice on the country's scientific development and its transformation of the economic growth pattern, Jia said.

The United Front Work Department should also help private enterprises play a bigger role in economic restructuring, he said.

He also said the United Front Work Department should help more scientists and intellectuals contribute to the nation's scientific and technological progress, he added.

Religious affairs are key to the unity of Chinese society and public governance, Jia said.

He urged more efforts in investigating the new problems and perennial difficulties of the management of religious affairs, to lay the foundation for improved policy and legislation.

The country should work harder to improve the management of religious affairs in accordance with law, he said.

Jia also stressed it is important for the Communist Party of China (CPC) to have good advisors from outside the Party, adding that the country should improve the mechanism for selecting and building its team of advisors.

The 100th anniversary of the 1911 Revolution - which brought an end to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) and feudal China - will be celebrated next year, he noted.
