BEIJING -- The deepened reform China is implementing must be "people-centric" and just, President Xi Jinping said at a meeting of the Leading Group for Overall Reform on Monday.

"A people-centric approach should be implemented in all areas of development, addressing people's demands and concerns, and giving them more tangible benefits," Xi said.

The president, also head of the leading group, was joined at the meeting by deputy heads Li Keqiang, Liu Yunshan and Zhang Gaoli, as well as other senior officials.

They approved a document regulating business operations by relatives of officials, a practice which has been extended to Beijing, Guangdong, Chongqing and Xinjiang on the basis of a trial in Shanghai.

Other documents on management of civil servants, encouragement of honesty, construction of private schools, and protection of police officers were also approved.
