Li Dongsheng, founder and chairman of TCL
Over 200 million people in China are in flexible employment, and the relevant social security systems should be improved according to a proposal from Li Dongsheng, founder and chairman of Chinese consumer electronics giant TCL and an NPC deputy.
Li proposed an independent platform for people with flexible employment to participate in social security programs within the national social security system.
Li also said the government should standardize the terms and content of labor contracts for people with flexible employment and protect their legitimate rights and interests.
Li also provided suggestions for nationwide carbon reduction. For example, to establish a unified platform for measuring individual carbon emissions, this could be in trial in first-tier cities with strong low-carbon awareness.
Based on monitoring data, the government could set carbon emission limits for residents, and guide people to choose low-carbon lifestyles and consumption habits. Financial incentives are another way to encourage carbon reductions for residents, Li added.
