China to promote "Fengqiao Experience" in veterans affairs system
HANGZHOU, Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- China will promote the "Fengqiao Experience" in the running of the veterans affairs system, according to a video conference held by the Ministry of Veterans Affairs Monday.
Fengqiao in eastern China was celebrated for its community-level social governance in the 1960s. The "Fengqiao Experience" is still regarded as the benchmark for resolving social disputes.
According to the conference, more efforts will be made to modernize China's system and capacity for veterans affairs governance, and to build a number of "demonstration service centers for veterans" nationwide, to improve the overall level of service and support for veterans.
Besides, volunteer service teams of veterans will be set up to encourage them to play an active role in society, said the conference.
