Peace of “Legislatives”: Legislative work is closely related to thousands of households
Many people are not familiar with legislation and feel that it is far from daily life. An Ning, deputy director of the Legislative Second Bureau of the Ministry of Justice, said at the meeting that in fact, legislative work is closely related to thousands of households.
An Ning spends most of her time doing economic legislation work. “Every piece of legislation is closely related to the “ledgers” of enterprises and the “pockets” of the people.” For example, the “Regulations on the Protection of Payments for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises” that resolve arrears to small and medium-sized enterprises, and the “Government” which manages how the government spends money. Investment Regulations, the Deposit Insurance Regulations to prevent financial risks, and the Anti-Monopoly Law that is being revised.

The legal nature of these enterprises, after that, the rapid development of express delivery.
In 2017, Anning and her colleagues then drafted the interim regulations on express delivery. In order to better understand the actual situation, they specially sent legislators to the express company to conduct research and study together with the courier staff to have meals and deliver packages. “A courier company told us that the law has changed us from a’black express’ to a’dark horse’ in the market. We believe in the law from the bottom of our hearts.”
Anning participated in the drafting of more than 20 important laws and administrative regulations. In actual work, he realized that legislation is to accurately transform the will of the party and the people into rules that the whole society follows, and explain clearly and clearly what the state protects, punishes, restricts, and supports.

Zhang Yi, born in the 1970s, is a lawyer in Tianjin Yiqing (Beijing) Law Firm. This year is the seventh year of his voluntary service as a lawyer. He has assisted Inner Mongolia for two years and Tibet for four years. Facing the problem of insufficient lawyer resources in my country’s border areas, Zhang Yi chose to go to the border areas to provide the people with the most needed legal services. Zhang Yi said, I think that people should have a sense of no hesitation throughout their lives, and they should do things that are worth remembering when they pass away.
During the four years of aid to Tibet, Zhang Yi traveled all over the four urban areas of Ngari, Xigaze, Lhasa, and Shannan in Tibet. He handled 284 legal aid cases of various types and recovered nearly 7 million yuan in economic losses for the aid recipients.

What impressed Zhang Yi the most was in September 2017, during his service in Shigatse City, he provided legal assistance to herdsmen’s families in Latse County.

Finally, the persistence of the mediator impressed the seven brothers and sisters. After five months of mediation, they all signed the mediation statement. “One of the eldest sisters held me in tears at the time. She said that our family could finally have a meal together. I was very excited at the time. Only by treating the people’s affairs as our own and comparing our hearts to our hearts can we achieve mutual understanding.”
