林毅夫等人获聘国务院参事 讲真话是最起码要求

据新华社电 国务院总理李克强8日在中南海紫光阁向新聘任的国务院参事、中央文史研究馆馆员颁发聘书。他强调,要充分发挥参事、馆员在国家科学民主决策中的特有作用。 国务委员兼国务院秘书长杨晶宣读了国务院聘任通知。李克强向新聘任的国务院参事林毅夫、杜鹰、谢伯阳、李玉光、张玉平、蔺永钧和中央文史研究馆馆员李前宽、张大宁、仲呈祥、安家瑶、田青、陈晓光一一颁发聘书,并向大家表示祝贺。他说,聘书虽然不大,但其中包含的责任和期待是沉甸甸的。 颁发聘书后,李克强与大家进行了座谈。他说,党中央、国务院高度重视参事室和文史馆工作,这是党的统一战线理论运用于国家政权建设的一个创举。多年来,参事和馆员们坚持调查研究,提出具有真知灼见的对策建议,做了大量卓有成效的工作,体现出对国家强烈的责任感。希望大家深入思考,广泛调研,把真实的情况反映上来,使政府决策更加体现国情民意,符合国家现实和长远发展需要,顺应历史的要求。 李克强指出,参事室、文史馆要发挥高端人才荟萃的特点,围绕国家改革发展中的重大问题,开展专题调研和深度研究,特别是要深入地方和基层,及时发现和总结来自一线具有生命力的新鲜经验,尊重群众首创精神,从人民群众中汲取营养,使提出的对策建议立得住、能见效。 李克强希望参事和馆员们以各种形式向国务院提出建议,大家齐心协力,把国家的事情办得更好。 – 纵深 参事馆员多为“德才望”兼备之士 参事和馆员都由国务院总理聘任,其中多数都是民主党派成员和无党派人士。例如“民进”发起人之一、曾任民革中央委员的谭冬菁,新中国成立后曾参与筹建重工业部航空工业局的航空工业专家王士卓,曾任中国石油化工集团公司国际事业公司教授级高级工程师的邓宝珊将军之女邓引引等。此外也有中共专家、学者和富有宏观管理经验的领导干部,如曾任国务院副秘书长、国务院机关党组副书记的张克智。 “多为各领域‘德、才、望’兼备之士”,对于各届参事,国务院参事室官网评述称。 北京理工大学管理与经济学院教授郎志正1998年7月被聘为国务院参事。今年9月他接受人民网参访时,回忆说,参事选拔程序先是国务院发出通知公开征聘参事,各民主党派、部委、高校和研究机构民主推荐。他受聘那年,经筛选报到国务院有60人左右,“随后国务院参事室又专门组织考察。具体到我,考察组从学校到学院再到教研室,举行座谈会了解情况。最后一共选了10个人,报给当时的总理朱镕基,最后剩下8人。这种组织严密的程序,能保证入选的参事都具有较高素质,达到资政的要求”。 郎志正说,讲真话是最起码要求,当参事必须独立思考、敢说真话,不能人云亦云。当年朱镕基总理发聘书时说了4个字:“直言谏言”,温家宝总理第一次会见国务院参事时重申3个字“讲真话”。 新京报记者 王姝
