He Guoqiang, chief of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the CPC, attended a panel discussion with the Henan delegation, hoping that Henan facilitates economic restructuring, consolidates the fundamental role of agriculture and coordinates the development between rural and urban centers.
