Responding to public concerns, Premier Li announced in his work report that the individual tax income threshold would be raised, which was widely welcomed. As the individual income tax threshold has remained 3,500 yuan ($534) a month since 2011, many people have to pay a higher percentage of their incomes as tax. The amendment will ease the financial burden for many families and help improve people's livelihood.

Excellent.
No wonder the vast majority of China's people want to keep Xi in office.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Premier Li's report was pretty inspiring that it seems he and his team are dedicated to putting these plans forward. China impressed the world with its achievement in poverty reduction. I 'm sure he can take certain steps to ensure that such projects will be heading towards the right direction.

Over 11 million new urban jobs, the surveyed urban unemployment rate within 5.5 percent, and the registered urban jobless rate within 4.5 percent


New jobs should not only be concentrated in the cities but also in the rural areas. The advantages are:

1) less migrant problems in the cities such as hukou, education for children, housing...etc.
2) population will be spread more evenly across China so city congestion can be reduced.
3) reunion travel for the Spring Festival can be less problematic.
4) rural areas become more attractive resulting in people more willing to stay and invest.

In addition, all schools (in rural and urban areas) should be equipped with the same modern facilities and qualified teachers so that rural children can have the same kind of education as the urban children. There should be no such thing as "elite" schools. This applies to elementary and high schools. Universities are different and must specialise.
