(Beijing) – The central government has formed seven task forces to draft reform plans for the third plenary meeting of the Communist Party's 18th National Congress slated for this autumn.

Comprehensive economic reform measures are expected to be unveiled at the party congress.

The task forces are divided by sectors, namely: finance; the fiscal system; land; production prices; trimming bureaucratic review; the income gap; and the hukou, or household registration, system. Policy suggestions from these task forces will be discussed at the meeting and the reforms are expected to take effect next spring, sources close to the central government said.
