BEIJING -- Healthy interplay between the designers of the reform drive and practices at the grassroots was the subject of Chinese President Xi Jinping's remarks on Tuesday.

Xi made the remarks at the seventh meeting of the Leading Group for Overall Reform.

Attributing all breakthroughs and development of China's reform and opening up drive to the wisdom of the people and their sound practices, Xi said efforts should be made to encourage grassroots people to free their minds, actively explore new ways of reform, and to embark on differentiated pilot reform programs in different regions.

Authorities must focus on issues of most public concern and the most difficult issues in people's lives, so as to cultivate "a healthy interplay and combination of top-level design and grassroots-level explorations when comprehensively deepening reform," he said.

Senior Chinese leaders Li Keqiang, Liu Yunshan and Zhang Gaoli also attended Tuesday's meeting, which also discussed reform of China's rural land acquisition and house site system, the establishment of a modern public cultural service system.

It also reviewed and adopted pilot plans to set up circuit courts and courts with jurisdiction across different regions.
