The 10th Provincial Party Congress made it clear to “support Wuhan to build a national central city based on the central region in China and an international metropolis facing to the world”. Wuhan ushers in great historical opportunities. With a brand-new outlook, Great Wuhan is making big strides on the road of scientific development and leap-forward growth!
In the past year, Wuhan’s economic and social development maintained a good momentum and has made hard-won achievements. This is the results of the solicitude of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, the correct leadership of the provincial CPC committee, the provincial government and the municipal CPC committee, the solidarity of all citizens of the city and the full cooperation of NPC deputies, CPPCC members and the all social communities working together with one heart. Here, on behalf of the Municipal People’s Government, I express my sincere thanks and highest respect to all hardworking people in all walks of life, NPC deputies and CPPCC members, the democratic parties, personages without party affiliation, the Federation of Industry and Commerce and social walks of life who give the Government strong support, to troops and armed police officers and soldiers in Wuhan, and to all comrades and friends who support the construction and development of Wuhan!
Currently, Wuhan is in a critical period of innovation-driven transformation and leap-forward development. Building a national central city and an international metropolis is a long way to go, and there are still many difficulties and challenges in the way ahead. From the perspective of macro-environment, the international economic situation is still complex and highly changeable. Domestic economic growth still suffers great downward pressure and the competition between cities is becoming increasingly fierce. Seen from the actual situations of Wuhan, to promote the synchronous development of industrialization, informatization, urbanization and agricultural modernization, there are still many contradictions and problems that should be solved: the size of the economy is not big enough; the industrial level is not high enough; the production and management of some companies is difficult; the growth of some industries slows down; resource and environmental constraints are tightening; the development mode transformation to promote the sustainable and healthy economic development is an arduous task; urban and rural infrastructure carrying capacity does not yet meet the needs of the rapid development; urban construction task is very heavy; accompanied by the expansion of city size, traffic congestion, production safety risk and other “urban diseases” are in urgent need of effective governance; profound changes in the social structure make the balancing interests of all parties and timely and effectively resolving various social contradictions increasingly difficult; the urban-rural dual structure contradiction is still prominent; rural production and living conditions need to be further improved; and the need to get rid of institutional barriers to the new urbanization development is urgent. The new situation has put forward higher requirements on the government work. Some government workers’ ability to perform their duties, awareness of diligence and honesty and their level of administration in accordance with the law need to be further enhanced. We will conscientiously and responsibly deal with these problems, rather than evading, shirking or shielding their mistakes, and make the greatest efforts to solve them.
