A Review of Our Work in 2019
2019 is a crucial year for winning the battle against poverty and completing the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects. In the face of tough challenges and weighty tasks, under the strong leadership of the Party committee of Zizhou County, we followed the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, adhered to the general principle of pursuing progress while ensuring stability, kept poverty alleviation in mind consistently when making the overall plan for economic and social development, promoted the performance of different tasks in a coordinated manner and basically fulfilled the targets and tasks set at the Fourth Session of the 18th People’s Congress of Zizhou County. The annual GDP reached RMB5,996 million, representing a 4% increase over the previous year; the county-level fixed asset investment amounted to RMB4,924 million, representing a 4.7% increase over the previous year; local fiscal revenue reached RMB104 million, which was RMB6 million more than the performance target set by the government of Yulin City; total retail sales of consumer goods was RMB1,111 million, representing a 12.1% increase over the previous year; the per capita disposable income of urban residents was RMB27,354, representing a 8.6% increase over the previous year; and the per capita disposable income of rural residents was RMB10,680, representing a 10% increase over the previous year.
Over the past year, we mainly carried out the following work:
i. We promoted the fight against poverty efficiently with concerted efforts. In order to see that the income of rural poor populations is up to standard, their basic living needs are met and they have access to compulsory education, basic medical services and housing, we made all-out efforts to address inadequacies, shore up points of weakness and make improvement in our fight against poverty. Ten poor villages got rid of poverty, 2,498 persons from 763 households were lifted out of poverty, and the poverty headcount ratio fell to 0.99%. We integrated and channeled funds of RMB550 million into rural development, paid business subsidies of RMB79.249 million to targeted households, developed 143 village-level collective economic projects, and implemented 553 projects for improvement of the water facilities, electricity facilities and roads in rural areas. We were the first in our city to promote the use of the Healthcare QR Code for Poverty Alleviation Purpose, and worked for the in-depth development of contracted family services. We fully performed our responsibilities in a province-city-county concerted effort to address school dropout rates and ensure attendance, and no students in compulsory education in the county were seen dropped out of school. During the 13th Five-Year Plan period, 3,490 persons from 882 households were relocated from inhospitable areas and all moved into new houses; 99.8% of the old homesteads were vacated and emptied; and 125 dilapidated houses were renovated. We passed the provincial performance evaluation, municipal verification and third-party evaluation and were rated “Good” by the province in terms of our performance in poverty alleviation, reduction and elimination. The achievements we made in poverty alleviation have laid a solid foundation for rural revitalization.
ii. The three industries continued to grow as projects were developed. The acreage of apples, walnuts and astragalus increased by 20,000 mu, 23,000 mu and 15,000 mu respectively. The acreage of cash crops on irrigated farmland increased by 2,442 mu. The number of Hu sheep and superfine cashmere goats developed was respectively 34,000 and 20,000. We made every effort to ensure the steady growth of our industry and approved 26 natural gas well sites, producing 8,000 tons of crude oil, 800 million cubic meters of natural gas and 160,000 tons of liquefied natural gas. Industrial investment companies were established, and the astragalus deep processing project of Shaanxi Coal and Chemical Industry Group Co., Ltd. progressed smoothly. We promoted the development of the private economy, paid rewards and loan subsidies totaling RMB10.75 million to private businesses, and discharged overdue payments owed to private and small and medium-sized enterprises amounting to RMB118 million. There were 995 entities registered in 2019. A county-level e-commerce service center was completed and put into operation, and 128 rural e-commerce outlets were built. The online sales exceeded RMB30 million. Of the 66 key projects in the last year, 17 were completed and 35 were under construction, together, accounting for 78.8% of the total, and the amount of investment completed was RMB3.11 billion. We implemented in 2019 12 programs to attract investment, and attracted an investment of RMB5.02 billion with RMB754 million obtained. The value of exports reached USD68,500.
iii. The appearance of urban and rural areas was improved as per our planning and guidance. We modified the general planning of the county seat as well as two specific plans, namely, the detailed construction plan for Zhangzhai, Jiaoqu and Wangzhuang, and the plan for comprehensive improvement of water drainage, waterlogging and river banks in the county seat. We carried out projects for restoring the asphalt surface of 12 streets and lanes including Renmin Road and Dali Road, and completed main works of the project for renovation of the head of Yuejin Canal, the project for renovation of the run-down areas around the Central Street and the resettlement housing project in Zhangjiawan and Jiaoqu, Wangzhuang. We successfully made the county a provincial forest city and provincial garden county seat, and determined the County Tree and County Flower after discussion. We solidly implemented 22 action plans to control pollution with an iron fist. We completed the task of “looking back” on the rectification of issues identified during environmental protection inspections organized by the central government and the government of Shaanxi Province. Owing to these efforts, we saw that the number of days with good air in the county reached 297 days in the last year, ranking first in the six counties in the south of Yulin City. We fully implemented the River Chief System, promoted the improvement of domestic sewage outlets, and built 5 township sewage treatment stations, two of which were put into operation. Efforts were made to improve people’s living environment. Specifically, we removed 5,580 tons of domestic garbage, dealt with unapproved dumping and unauthorized constructions at 810 locations, and built 8 rural revitalization demo villages. Comprehensive measures were taken to improve the ecological environment in Hejiagou, Songjiagou, Niuxuegou and Wujiagou, improving a soil erosion area of 91 square kilometers.
iv. We improved people’s wellbeing and ensured the overall social stability of the county. The fourth elementary school, the second middle school complex and the county hospital complex were completed and put into use. Main part of the cultural center of the county was completed, and 4 township health centers and 28 village clinics were rebuilt or expanded. We introduced to the first elementary school, the fourth elementary school and the experimental middle school a management team consisting of famous principals from Xi’an City, piloted and promoted the reform concerning the principal rank system, and actively sought support from the Education Department of Shaanxi Province in this regard. We redoubled our efforts in providing employment and entrepreneurship services, promoted the sound development of professional personnel service platforms and markets and hosted 11 special job fairs. With these efforts, 34 medical personnel and medical technologists were recruited; 1,780 new urban jobs were added; over 95% of the fresh graduates found jobs; and 61,000 nonagricultural employment opportunities were created for rural workforce. Upon re-assessment, 4,075 persons from 2,275 households in rural areas were determined to be eligible for subsistence allowances, and 1,316 persons from 1,216 households were determined to be in extreme poverty and eligible for relevant assistance and support. We built 23 rural happiness homes and 13 community service centers, and promoted the use of bus IC cards. We successfully held a series of events including the 4th Dough Modeling Festival and Qingming Cultural Forum, the event entitled 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China - Celebrity’s View on Zizhou, and the event entitled Celebration of the Harvest on the Occasion of the China National Day. We organized 140 performances for people in the countryside, and arranged 6,732 showings of digital movies. Non-performing loans (NPL) amounting to RMB46.95 million were collected or resolved in 2019, and the NPL ratio dropped to 2.4%. Great efforts were made to combat organized crime, root out local mafia and control drugs, through which, 231 criminal cases were cracked and 7,709 grams of drugs were seized. Matigou Police Station was among the first group of police stations in China that were awarded Fengqiao-style Police Station by the Ministry of Public Security. Production safety was improved in terms of all the four indicators. We made further efforts to ensure unimpeded filing of public complaints. We received 924 complainants in the last year; 94.2% of the complaints were entertained in a timely manner; and all complaints were responded to and settled within the specified time.
v. We enforced rigorous self-discipline of the government and administrative efficiency kept improving. We steadily promoted the institutional reform and set up the Administrative Approval Service Bureau, the Medical Security Bureau and the Veteran Affairs Bureau. The administrative functions of 33 public institutions were all assigned to government agencies, and 31 departments, 184 public institutions and 3,357 persons basically achieved a smooth transfer. The business environment was further improved. Sixty-six windows at the government service center were integrated; 383 government service items were transferred; 597 items were reported as completed online, and those completed online accounted for 98.68% of the total. The procedures for starting up a business were simplified, and the time required for registration of a new business was reduced to 2 working days. We saved construction funds of RMB80.48 million through follow-up audit on government-related investment of all types. We proactively disclosed more than 9,000 pieces of government information, and handled and responded to 1,198 inquiries about government affairs posted by netizens. We readily subjected ourselves to the oversight of the People’s Congress of Zizhou County and the CPPCC Zizhou Committee, handled, in the last year, 31 suggestions from deputies to the People’s Congress and 66 proposals from the CPPCC committee members, and achieved a response rate of 100%.
Fellow deputies, in the past year, we promoted across the county the spirit of those participating in the disaster relief operations after occurrence of the July 26 Flood. We united and worked hand in hand. We remained true to our aspiration by acting in a responsible manner and carried out our mission by doing solid work. We developed the framework for promoting the industrialization of agriculture, promoted recovery and improvement on the basis of post-disaster reconstruction, and forged ahead on the road toward a moderately prosperous society in all aspects. We owe what we achieved to the strong leadership and proper decisions of the Party committee of Yulin City, the government of Yulin City and the Party committee of Zizhou County, the effective oversight and full support from the People’s Congress of Zizhou County and the CPPCC Zizhou Committee, and the unity and concerted efforts of the people of the whole county. On behalf of the government of Zizhou County, I express heartfelt thanks and pay deep respects to the officials and people of the county, deputies to the People’s Congress and the CPPCC committee members, people’s organizations, people without party affiliation, officers and soldiers of the armed police stationed in Zizhou County, policemen and women, and to people from all sectors of society participating in or supporting the development of Zizhou County.
Our Work in 2020
The covid-19 epidemic swept across the world at the beginning of 2020. Under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee, the State Council, the Party committee of Shaanxi Province, the government of Shaanxi Province, the Party committee of Yulin City and the government of Yulin City, our Party committee has taken charge of the overall planning; the People’s Congress of Zizhou County, the government of Zizhou County and CPPCC Zizhou Committee have worked jointly in a coordinated manner; and the officials and people of the whole county have come together in solidarity and fought with courage against the epidemic. Up to now, the county has zero imported cases, zero spread cases and zero infected residents. In fighting this war without the smoke of gunpowder, our Party members, officials, medical workers, policemen and women, media personnel and volunteers have given up their time for rest, left personal safety out of consideration, sacrificed their own interests for that of the public, stood fast at their posts, and continued their work without complaining. All Zizhou people have acted rationally and stood together in the most trying of times. It is the all-out persistence and dedication of all people that bring love to Zizhou amid the ruthless pandemic; it is the all-out persistence and dedication of all people that boost our confidence and determination to defeat the pandemic and protect the lives and health of Zizhou people; and it is the all-out persistence and dedication of all people that enable us to expect a better future of Zizhou. In this special year, we are faced with the task of building a moderately prosperous society in all aspects, the accomplishment of the 13th Five-Year Plan and the roll-out and development of the 14th Five-Year Plan. There are challenges and opportunities, as well as advantages.
--Challenges inspire fighting spirit. At present, there are four major challenges: First, the challenge of carrying out covid-19 control while promoting economic and social development. The epidemic situation overseas is still severe, the domestic fight against covid-19 must continue without let-up, and development cannot be interrupted. We must take a two-pronged approach and achieve success in both aspects. Second, the challenge of winning the battle against poverty. This year, we will see a nationwide poverty reduction survey, which is an assessment and measurement of the highest standard of our performance in poverty alleviation in the past five years. In addition, we must consolidate and improve our gains in poverty alleviation, and ensure efficient transition to implementation of the rural revitalization strategy. Third, the challenge posed by the increasingly fierce regional competition. The county’s leading industries are still at a low level in terms of systematism, scale production, marketization and branding; the issue of unbalanced and inadequate development of urban and rural areas has not yet been resolved; the sources of revenue are not sufficiently fostered and supported for sustainable growth, and the contradiction between fiscal revenue and expenditure is prominent; and there are still systemic weaknesses in the planning and preparation, investment structure, progress evaluation, supervision and assessment of key projects. The county’s economy ranks about the 60th in the province, which is low. The proportion of GDP contributed by the county in the total GDP of Yulin City and the total GDP of the six counties in the south of Yulin City dropped from 2% and 20.7% in 2016 to 1.45% and 16.6% in 2019 respectively, and that of the local fiscal revenue dropped from 0.53% and 22.59% in 2016 to 0.26% and 12.43% in 2019 respectively. Fourth, the challenge of regulated and efficient execution. The minds of our officials and civil servants are not open enough, and their work is not rigorous and meticulous enough. Our procedures and systems are still not perfect and standardized. We are far from meeting the requirements of the new era and expectations of the people when it comes to executors, capacity for execution and execution norms, which are relevant to reform and development as well as implementation of decisions. A number of longstanding problems need to be resolved urgently. The basic requirements for ecological conservation must be fulfilled. There are prominent structural weaknesses in key wellbeing and social programs such as education and medical care. The task of improving business environment is tough.
--Opportunities motivate people. This year, we will focus efforts on four major opportunities: First, national strategic opportunities. In actively responding to the epidemic, the state has increased the amount of funds earmarked for investment in the central government budget, and determined such measures as appropriately increasing the deficit-to-GDP ratio, issuing covid-19 bonds and increasing special government bonds. The new round of large-scale development in the western region, ecological protection and high-quality development in the Yellow River basin and collaboration on poverty alleviation between the eastern and western regions deliver unprecedented strategically favorable conditions for us to take over relocated industries. Second, opportunities arising from provincial and municipal support. Increased support is given to renovation of old residential communities and projects for improvement of infrastructure such as municipal pipelines, urban parking lots, public health services and cold chain logistics for agricultural products; special funds at provincial level support One County, One Policy; and the construction of Loess Plateau ecological conservation demonstration zone, the Four Ten Billion-Scale Industrial Bases and the “Double Ten Million” Lamb Project is underway, all of which has helped us figure out the priorities in industrial development of the county and provided support in this respect. Third, opportunities for integrated development. After several years of development of agricultural modernization, the production capacity in mountainous areas has been gradually released. The initiatives to build the county into a nationwide organic mountain apple demo county and an organic agricultural product demo county have been promoted in an accelerated manner. The application for astragalus being used as both medicine and food has been formally approved as a pilot program, and the integrated development of industries is quite promising. Fourth, opportunities for open development. The cooperation between Yulin and Yangzhou is deepening, and the governments of Shaanxi Province and Yulin City clearly support the enclave economy. Our pairing assistance relationships with Yuyang District and Jiangdu District have existed for a long period of time with good foundation, through which, we have complemented each other, and we are starting to approach the Enclave Economic Park in Yulin High-tech Zone. Yulin promotes the development of cashmere products in the international market. It is in line with our idea of developing superfine cashmere goats and building our county into a demo county for breeding superfine cashmere goats by relying on the Sino-foreign joint venture, Yingma’an Company. This is conductive to promote cooperation.
--Advantages bring together the strength. We must give full play to four major advantages: First, political advantages resulting from sound administration and harmonious society. The previous leadership groups rallied the people of the county, led them in seeking development, making breakthroughs and solving problems, and worked in a united and concerted manner, thus laying a solid foundation for development. Second, potential advantages in resource development. Zizhou has relatively abundant coal, oil, gas and salt resources as compared with the other five counties in the south of Yulin City. As the state encourages private businesses in poor areas to enter the oil and gas exploration and development sector, our potential advantages will be effectively transformed into advantages in development. Third, advantages resulting from the fact that our areas of weakness are just the areas in which we receive external assistance and support. We are in urgent need to improve the quality of education and teaching and the medical services in Zizhou. These are major tasks that have attracted great attention both within and outside the county, as well as what the people are eagerly awaiting. It is right in these areas that we receive support from the National Health Commission and the Education Department of Shaanxi Province through pairing programs. This is our comparative advantage based on external forces. Fourth, the cultural advantage that Zizhou people dare to forge ahead and value ties of friendship. The traditional culture in Zizhou has influenced generations of people, such as the historical story about Jie Zitui who cut a slice of muscle from his own leg and served it to his master to save the master’s life, and the concept of “filial piety is the most important of all virtues” and Red Zizhou. All Zizhou people, whether working in or away from Zizhou, are concerned about their hometown and desire for a better Zizhou. This is the inherent forces that drive the economic and social development within the county.
Fellow deputies, we must stay true to our original aspiration and keep our mission firmly in mind. At present, we see ourselves in a favorable environment where there are both opportunities and challenges, and opportunities outweigh challenges. Responding to various challenges on the road to a moderately prosperous society, we need to be highly responsible and hardworking, do solid work and dedicate ourselves to our work; facing the multiple opportunities offered by the central government as well as the governments of Shaanxi Province and Yulin City, we need to plan ahead, make approaches proactively and fully grasp the opportunities; and considering our potential advantages, we need to stay confident, rally all parties concerned and dig deeper. We can surely break new ground in high-quality development of Zizhou with concerted efforts as long as we remain sober-minded when it comes to political stance, meet problems head-on, refrain from shying away in the face of difficulty and work practically and determinedly; and turn challenges into opportunities, pressure into motivation, and advantages into overwhelming superiority.
For the government to deliver in 2020, our general plan is as below: follow the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era; fully implement the guiding principles of the Party’s 19th National Congress and the second, third and fourth plenary sessions of its 19th Central Committee; firmly implement the decisions and plans of the Party Central Committee and the local Party committees of Shaanxi Province, Yulin City and Zizhou County; always keep in mind the targets and tasks for catching up and surpassing, completing the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects, and high-quality development; continue to follow the general principle of pursuing progress while ensuring stability; give priority to industrial integration, law-based governance and urban-rural integration, and make progress in the three critical battles; fully implement the measures for ensuring stability on six fronts, namely employment, the financial sector, foreign trade, foreign investment, domestic investment and expectations; properly carry out covid-19 control while performing the tasks for promoting economic and social development; make major headway in modernization of social governance system and governance capability; adapt to and take advantage of changes; promote the construction of a beautiful, happy and strong Zizhou with high quality; and ensure completion of the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects and accomplishment of the 13th Five-Year Plan.
We expect to achieve the following main targets: GDP growth by about 7%; increase of county-level fixed asset investment by about 10%; growth of local fiscal revenue by about 7%; increase of total retail sales of consumer goods by about 8%; increase of per capita disposable income of urban and rural residents by more than 8% and 9% respectively; investments attracted and obtained exceeding RMB1 billion; and value of exports exceeding USD500,000.
To fulfill the targets and tasks stated above, we must follow the ultimate political principle that the Party Leads Everything; focus on continuity, stability and innovation in development; be problem-oriented, target-oriented and result-oriented in carrying out our work; and practice the people-centered development philosophy that calls for collaboration, participation and common interests. Specifically, we will carry out our work from nine aspects as follows:
i. Focusing on increasing the income of rural populations, and continuing to promote modernization of agriculture in mountainous areas
We are determined to win the fight against poverty. We will act on the Four Continues policy, and intensify our efforts to see that the income of poverty-stricken populations is up to standard, their basic living needs are met and they have access to compulsory education, basic medical services and housing. We will take solid steps to fully identify poverty alleviation problems, supplement or correct registration information in the poverty alleviation information system, ensure that records of and rectification measures for poverty alleviation problems are in place, and act on the measures to consolidate our gains and prevent those who are removed from the poverty list from falling back into poverty. We will properly check the implementation of policies and complete all poverty alleviation tasks, identify existing problems and complete all rectification activities, and check long-term mechanisms and eliminate omissions and areas of weakness, so as to lift all those now living below the current poverty line out of poverty. We will consolidate and improve our gains in poverty alleviation, step up efforts to promote poverty alleviation by developing competitive industries, regulate and improve the operating mechanism and mode of the village-level collective economy, and work to eliminate villages that are weak in the collective economy. We will take considerable steps to boost internal forces energizing the poor, and pay great attention to households that live above but very close to the poverty line and households that have recently been lifted out of poverty and are still being monitored, so as to ensure that we pass the nationwide poverty reduction survey smoothly.
We will consolidate and expand the leading industries. We will continue to grow both fruits and medicinal herbs, and raise cashmere goats in the south and mutton sheep in the north. Specifically, a mountain apple plantation covering an area of 20,000 mu will be built, as well as a Traditional Chinese Medicine production center covering an area of 20,000 mu to produce in particular astragalus root and root of Chinese skullcap; an acreage of 20,000 mu of walnuts will be newly planted or replanted; efforts will be made to improve low-yield apples and walnuts covering an area of 10,000 mu each; and the number of mutton sheep, beef cattle and superfine cashmere goats raised will be increased to 100,000, 20,000 and 60,000 respectively. We will make every effort to make our county a modern agriculture demo county in the mountainous area of northern Shaanxi Province.
We will accelerate the adjustment of planting structure. We will work to develop a scientific and efficient planting structure with three dimensions, i.e., grain crops, cash crops and forage crops; promote, as a part of the One Mu Land project, the planting of improved varieties of potato for 9,000 mu and improved varieties of minor grain crops for 20,000 mu, and adjust the planting structure for over 2,000 mu irrigated land; build new machine-based greenhouses covering an area of 454 mu, and actively promote the photovoltaic vegetable greenhouse project in Peijiawan covering an area of 1,000 mu; increase the area of forage grass by 10,000 mu; and build 1 straw processing center and 8 collection, storage, transportation and processing outlets.
We will channel greater energy into brand building for agricultural products. We will take proactive measures to make our county a national demo county for organic product certification and a demo county for agricultural product quality traceability; build quality inspection and testing stations for agricultural products; work actively to secure access to third-party platforms such as Alibaba and JD.COM in reliance on the market advantages of Shaanxi Fruit Industry Group Co., Ltd. and Shaanxi Coal and Chemical Industry Group Co., Ltd.; intensify efforts to promote the development of Zizhou Mountain Apple and Zizhou Astragalus as two major brands; and create new ways of promotion and marketing while making full use of media, exhibitions and celebrity endorsements to make Zizhou agricultural products more influential and competitive in the market.
We will take practical measures to improve our ability of innovation in agricultural science and technology. We will step up efforts to promote cooperation with universities and scientific research institutes to build an agricultural technology innovation mechanism bringing together firms, universities, research institutes and consumers. We will strengthen flexible introduction of talents, promote the combination of introduction and training, and cultivate 200 modern professional farmers. We will work actively to develop the database of experts in agricultural and forestry technology; build a database of scientific and technological achievements collected for local application; expand the agricultural technology talent pool; establish the China Astragalus Research Institute; promote the establishment of the Northern Shaanxi Mountain Apple Research Institute; and explore the building of a platform for the promotion and application of agricultural technology under the smart agriculture model.
We will strengthen the construction of agricultural supporting infrastructure. We will follow the principle of “ecological environment first, guided by planning, diversified inputs and government to give support”. We will support agricultural entities that are concentrated and contiguous with each other to form a cluster, and build supporting roads, water storage and irrigation projects and power upgrading projects to promote industrial development. We will develop high-standard basic farmlands of 20,000 mu; build 20 fruit warehouses each with a capacity of 200 tons of fruits; build 200 new drought-resistant emergency rain collection cellars; repair and reinforce 32 check dams; and build new lateral field canals with a length of 50 kilometers.
ii. Focusing on industrial transformation, and intensifying efforts to promote new industrialization within the county
We will provide support to help businesses reach designed capacity and improve efficiency. We will continue to follow the development principle of stabilizing oil, promoting coal, expanding gas and exploring salt, encourage Yanchang Oilfield and Changqing Oilfield to release their existing oil and gas production capacity, and work actively to attract private capital to promote the local conversion and utilization of resources. We will speed up the approval and construction of oil and gas wells in non-disputed areas to ensure stable supply of gas to Jinyuan Company and township gasification projects. We will support the construction of Yongxing Coal Mine and make efforts to put it into operation by the end of the year. We will support Chengyuan Coal Washing Plant in expansion of its production and promote the development of Fengqu 110 kV substation. We will work actively to put idle resources of businesses to good use, support the transformation and upgrading of existing enterprises leading in the processing of agricultural and sideline products, and encourage them to further expand production and release capacity. Support will be provided to local construction enterprises to help them upgrade qualifications and expand business, so as to increase the GDP contributed by the construction sector.
We will promote the upgrading of industrial parks. We will accelerate the reform of industrial parks according to planning; optimize and adjust the layout of industrial parks; and create a coordinated development model integrating management committees, platform companies and professional parks. We will channel greater energy into construction of the industrial park for providing follow-up support and assistance to relocated people in Yihe Community, the Matigou Agricultural Product Processing, Warehousing and Logistics Park and the Sino-German International Poverty Alleviation Industrial Park in Laojundian to be built in cooperation with Yingma’an Company, creating an intensive and efficient industrial development structure with characteristic features, clearly-defined rights and responsibilities and reasonable layout, where development is based on professional parks, led by leading enterprises and supported by characteristic towns.
We will support the startup of new qualified businesses. To make our county one of the best counties in Shaanxi Province in innovation and entrepreneurship, we will intensify efforts to foster, develop and expand major specialized operators, family farms, professional cooperatives and leading enterprises, and foster more than 10 “Five Aboves” Enterprises. We will publish innovation and entrepreneurship measures to encourage merchants and talents who are Zizhou people but work away from home to return to their hometown, and start businesses independently or jointly with others, or seek potential employment with village-level Party committees, villagers committees or collective economic organizations on a full-time or part-time basis. The word “Zhou” as seen in the name of the county refers literally to ecological habitats on the land, and, by taking the foregoing measures, we are determined to create an enabling environment that encourages Zizhou people who work away from their hometown to start up businesses and seek personal development back in Zizhou.
iii. Focusing on the task of catching up and surpassing within the county, and making strong efforts to advance systemized promotion of projects
We will go all out to increase effective investment. Taking the Project Quality and Efficiency Improvement Year as an opportunity, we will keep firmly in mind the concept that project determines all and project construction matters; establish and improve the working mechanism of Five Ones and Four Systems for Project Management; and introduce measures to regulate project management, management of public resource transactions, review of changes to engineering designs and adjustments of project estimates/budgets and contracting of projects below the limits. We will take firm steps to promote the construction of 60 key projects, commence construction of a group of projects in March, adjust or replenish a group of projects at the end of April, and propose and plan a group of projects at the end of September. We will provide rewards and incentives for expansion of effective investment to encourage private capital to flow into infrastructure and public service sectors, and will do everything we could to make the proportion of private investment in the total investment exceed 50%.
We will work to ensure that responsibilities in seeking project funding from governments at a higher level are fully performed. We will introduce an assessment and reward measure in respect of our performance in seeking project funding from governments at a higher level in 2020, and incorporate the same into the annual performance assessment. We will channel greater efforts into the application of projects to be funded by the central government or the government of Shaanxi Province, as well as supervision of the implementation of such projects. We will make efforts to address inadequate preparations for such projects, and keep enriching and improving the project database, in order to improve the accuracy of project application and the probability of being approved.
Efforts will be made to promote opening up. We will advance investment attraction work by introducing preferential and incentive policies, and seeking strategic consultancy from or delegating investment attraction duties to external forces such as third-party think tanks and professional investment promotion agencies. We will give full play to the role of our chamber of commerce in other regions as bridges and bonds, actively carry out regional economic and trade activities, start the implementation of Yulin High-tech Zone-Zizhou Enclave Economic Park, deepen the economic and technological exchanges and cooperation with Yuyang District and Jiangdu District, further the exchanges and cooperation with German and Swiss enterprises in reliance upon Yingma'an Company, and fill the gaps in the establishment of sister city relationships between our county and cities abroad. Trade relationship will be established between Qingshuigou Ecological Park and East Timor to further promote the use of foreign capital and foreign trade exports.
iv. Focusing on development of new types of business and effectively promoting the marketization of the tertiary industry
We will develop cultural tourism with characteristic features. We will formulate a plan for building the whole county into a tourism model county, work actively to find strategic partners, fully tap the culture, tourism, product or other resources of Zizhou County, and work to change the current situation that investment in tourism mainly comes from the government. We will take steps to promote the construction of Xifeng Temple and Nanfeng Stockade Village as 3A scenic spots, and improve the county’s tourism management capacity and service quality. We will organize a series of intellectual and cultural activities with the theme of Charming Zizhou to promote and make good use of Zizhou’s cultural resources.
We will promote wider application of modern forms of business. Responding to the development of Internet Plus and integration of the primary, secondary and tertiary industries, we will channel great energy into the development of emerging service industries such as modern finance, property service, cultural media, leisure and health care and call centers, and actively foster new drivers of consumption growth. We will complete the construction of the agricultural product market in Yihe Community in the east of the county seat and try our best to put it into use, and we will also start in due course the construction of an agricultural product wholesale and distribution center in the west of the county seat.
We will develop a logistics service system.
