1. A review of our work in 2020 and the “13th Five-Year Plan” 

2020 is a year that is extremely unusual. Under the guidance of General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important speeches, all involved in the city led by the strong leadership of the CPC Changchun Municipal Committee have been going through an unprecedented fight against the COVID-19 and a comprehensive examination of development, with major achievements made in pandemic control and prevention, and socioeconomic development. 

In line with the principle “people first and life first”, we have been determined to fight and win the battle against the pandemic since its outbreak by mobilizing all resources to block the spread of the virus. The number of cases in hospital went down to zero within only 50 days. We established and improved a normalized prevention and control mechanism at the earliest possible time, and made an all-out effort deal with the risk of imported cases, protect people’s safety and maintain the order of normal life. While continuing to advance control and prevention, we promoted socioeconomic development, took pragmatic measures to ensure stability on six fronts and maintain security in six areas, facilitated economic recovery and growth against the trend of recession. The GDP was estimated to increase by 3.5%, ranking the first among the four cities in Northeast China. The city ensured a forefront in pandemic control and socioeconomic development.

The industrial enterprises in the city took the lead nationwide in resuming work and production. The output value of industries above designated size increased by more than 8.5%, ranking in a leading position among the sub-provincial cities. With support given to the “six regressions” of production scheduling, production capacity, supporting facilities, settlement, talent and innovation, the production and sale of FAW increased by 3.6% and 4.5% respectively.

(7) Government functions performed in accordance with law. We fully cooperated with the inspections organized by the Central Government and the CPC Jilin Provincial Committee to find out and rectify problems in a timely manner. We accepted as required by law the oversight by Changchun Municipal People’s Congress and its Standing Committee. We readily accepted the democratic oversight of Changchun Municipal Committee of the CPPCC, public oversight and oversight through public opinion, and collected in an extensive manner opinions and suggestions from various democratic parties, federations of industry and commerce, personages without party affiliation, and people’s organizations. Two proposals by Changchun Municipal People’s Congress, 239 pieces of suggestions, one recommendation and 339 proposals by Changchun Municipal Committee of the CPPCC were implemented as expected. We unswervingly enforced full, rigorous self-discipline of the Party, made great efforts to improve Party conduct and build a clean government, strictly observed the central Party leadership’s eight-point decision on improving work conduct, continued to address the practice of formalities for formalities’ sake and bureaucracy.

We further consolidated the good situation of national unity and religious harmony, and made new achievements in the fields of national security, supply and marketing, meteorology, public accumulation fund, archives, civil air defense, local chronicles and the Red Cross, etc. 

2020 is the last year for the “13th Five-Year Plan”. Over the past five years, we have followed the general principle of striving for progress while ensuring stability, implemented a series of major measures benefiting the present and the long term, promoted the revitalization and development of the city up to a new level, and made decisive achievements in building a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way. 

The past five years witnessed an overall leap in economic strength. The GDP increased from RMB477.38 billion to RMB650 billion. Services became the driving force of economic growth. The number of hi-tech enterprises increased by 7.2 times. The number of market entities exceeded 1 million. Emerging industries continued to grow, traditional industries went through rapid transformations, and the momentum of development remained on rise. 

The past five years witnessed the deepening of reform and opening up. With comprehensive efforts put into, multiple points prioritized for and in-depth promotions conducted for reform, we made breakthroughs in important areas and key links. The initiative of “delegating power, streamlining administration and optimizing services” promoted the overall optimization of business environment and significantly reinforced the vitality of market. Changchun New Area and other major opening up platforms and carriers made remarkable achievements, with a total import and export volume of more than RMB100 billion. 

The past five years witnessed the progress in the three critical battles. We managed a historical elimination of poverty for all rural residents living below the current poverty line. The quality of ecological environment continued to improve. The average annual number of days with good air quality increased by 70 days, and the quantity of Inferior Ⅴ Class water went down to zero. We had a batch of major potential risks “accurately dismantled”, and achieved important results in handling financial risks in the period. 

The past five years witnessed remarkable changes in urban and rural areas. The operating mileage of rail transit exceeded 100km, and the supply capacity of water, electricity, natural gas and heating improved steadily. The city proper within the 3rd Ring Road took on a new look, and the living surroundings in rural areas changed with each passing day. The development pattern of “four plates” and “two bases” began to take shape, and the spatial framework of a modern metropolitan area in the city went fully unfolded. 

The past five years witnessed continuous improvement of people’s wellbeing. The income growth of urban and rural residents turned out to be faster than economic growth. A full coverage of urban and rural endowment, medical insurance was realized. The basic living standard of the people in need was improved in each and every past year. Education, culture, health and sport progressed continuously, and people’s sense of gain, happiness and security was improved in an all-round way. 

The achievements we made in socioeconomic development in the past five years are the result of scientific guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era and the cordial care of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council. These achievements cannot be made possible without the correct leadership of the CPC Jilin Provincial Committee, the People’s Government of Jilin Province and the CPC Changchun Municipal Committee, the oversight and support by Changchun Municipal People’s Congress and Changchun Municipal Committee of the CPPCC, and the united efforts made by all cadres and masses in the city. On behalf of the People’s Government of Changchun City, I would therefore like to express my sincere regards and heartfelt thanks to the people of the whole city, deputies to the People’s Congress, members of the committee of the CPPCC, all other political parties, federations of industry and commerce, people’s organizations, units under direct management of central and provincial governments in the city, soldiers of the People’s Liberation Army and the armed police officers as well as all public figures and foreign nationals from all sectors of society who cared about and supported the development of Changchun City! 

While recognizing our achievements, we are also keenly aware of the difficulties and problems we have been facing. The shock of the COVID-19 pandemic and the affect caused by the change of external environment have increased the risk of industrial and supply chains. Enterprises especially private enterprises, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises are facing growing difficulties. The industrial structure is not reasonable, the size of strategic emerging industries, modern services and private economy is still small, and the development of new industries and new formats of businesses is not fast. The improvement of people’s wellbeing is still behind people’s expectation. There are still weak points and short boards in such fields as ecological environment, transportation, education, medical care, social governance and safe production. The work conduct of the government still needs to be optimized. Formalism and bureaucracy still exist. The sense of responsibility of cadres needs to be further strengthened, and the ability of innovation and tackling critical issues needs to be further improved. We must face and take effective measures to solve such contradictions and problems.
