In the face of reality, it is necessary to seek truth from facts and analyze deeply and calmly, and distinguish which phenomena are caused by the change of social environment conditions and the reform of system and mechanism, which are caused by legislation itself or legal matching or administrative law enforcement, which are caused by the consciousness and ability of charitable organizations themselves, and which are caused by social and public philanthropic cognition and ideas.

Participants believe that at present, all kinds of problems are so complicated that it is difficult to effectively solve the problem only by law enforcement inspection and urging the relevant government departments to work hard at law enforcement level. On the basis of the summary of this law enforcement inspection, it is imperative to start the process of amending the Charity Law.
