New Year Speech
By Changning District Director
Dear comrades and friends:
We are at the best of times and it pays to work hard. On the occasion of saying goodbye to the year 2018 and welcoming 2019, I, on behalf of the Changning District People’s Government, extend my New Year’s greetings to the people of Changning, the people who live and work in Changning as well as all our friends who care and support the development of Changning.
We marched forward in 2018. When profound changes took place in the external environment and we entered a crucial stage of deep transition, we adhered to the general tone of making steady progress in our work, focusing on promoting high-quality development, creating a high-quality life and deepening high-level reform and innovation. The economy of Changning maintained stable growth, made improvements and further increased urban functional levels and core-competitiveness in 2018.
In the past year, we adhered to institutional innovation and better served enterprises. We understood what enterprises needed through constant visits and studies. Reform and innovation measures, such as "one business license with multiple addresses," were commended by the State Council. The vitality of regional innovation and entrepreneurship was further unleashed. In the past year, we offered service guarantees to the first China International Import Expo and pushed forward intensive management through urban renewal projects. Our district took on a new look. The slow traffic system and relaxed environment made Changning more attractive. The quality of public spaces was improved.
In the past year, we tried our best to solve the issues people were most concerned about, increasing investment to improve people’s livelihoods, and focusing on housing, elderly care and other tough tasks.We carried out a three-year strategy for "quality plus balance" development in the fields of education, medical care, culture and elderly care to build a beautiful and livable community and let our people be more satisfied, happier and safer.
Dreams encourage us to keep moving forward and we strive for a better future. In 2019, we will fully implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech during his visit to Shanghai, link it to practice, take immediate action and provide new driving forces for a new round of development for Changning. We will focus on the theme of "building a beautiful home and sharing a good life" and unswervingly promote the two major strategies of industrial development and urban renewal, unswervingly fulfill the "quality plus balance" action plan in improving people’s livelihoods, make persistent efforts to overcome difficulties, increase urban functional levels and core-competitiveness and accelerate the construction of an international community of excellence.
We will carry forward the tradition of "first mover," further boost the spirit of entrepreneurship, give full play to regional advantages, promote further reform and opening up and make further breakthroughs in innovation and development. We will make people’s longing for a better life come true and welcome the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China with excellent achievements.
Last but not the least, I sincerely wish the people of Changning a happy New Year. I wish all of you progress and prosperity in your endeavors, good health and family happiness!
