2020/06/11

On his recent inspection tour in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, President of the People's Republic of China, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission, underscored the need to fully implement the decisions of the CPC Central Committee, follow the general principle of pursuing progress while ensuring stability, and uphold the new development philosophy.

Xi urged implementing the plans adopted at this year's NPC and CPPCC sessions, and ensuring the success in the three critical battles against potential risks, poverty and pollution.

He called for solid steps to maintain stable performance in six key areas, namely employment, finance, foreign trade, foreign investment, domestic investment and market expectations, and all-out efforts on six priorities, namely employment, people's livelihood, the development of market entities, food and energy security, stable operation of the industrial and supply chains, and smooth functioning at the community level.

Xi stressed the need to cushion the impact of COVID-19 and prioritize employment stability and people's well-being. He highlighted the goals of completing the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects, and securing the ultimate victory in the battle against extreme poverty. He instructed local authorities to make continued efforts to bring about a new outlook in Ningxia featuring economic prosperity, ethnic unity, pleasant environment and better lives for its people.

Ningxia, the oasis beyond the Great Wall, greets guests with lush foliage and clear sky in summer days. Between 8 and 10 June, accompanied by Party Secretary Chen Runer and Chairman Xian Hui of the Autonomous Region , Xi visited the cities of Wuzhong and Yinchuan, and went to a village, a residential community, flood prevention facilities and agro-industrial parks, where he inspected work on advancing economic and social development while meeting COVID-19 containment requirements, on locking in the gains in poverty alleviation, on strengthening environmental protection and on promoting ethnic unity and progress.

On the morning of 10 June, Xi was briefed by the Party committee and government of the Autonomous Region on their work, and recognized their efforts on all fronts. He encouraged the local officials and people to stay united, work hard and contribute more to realizing the Two Centenary Goals and the Chinese dream of great national renewal.

Xi emphasized the need to press ahead with high-quality development. Shifting the growth model, upgrading industries, and nurturing new driving forces at a faster pace will help realize desirable gains in quantity and steady improvement in quality.

Tax and fee relief policies must be fully delivered, measures to stimulate domestic demand earnestly implemented, and investment in major projects effectively leveraged. Difficulties in business reopening must be promptly addressed.

With boosting domestic demand as a strategic fulcrum, and the supply-side structural reform as the key task, greater efforts are needed for the smooth running in the full cycle of production, distribution, circulation and consumption.

Xi highlighted innovation as a driving force propelling progress toward high-end, green, smart and integrated industries.

He also urged putting in place industrial, production, and business operation systems tailored for modern agriculture, and presenting Ningxia's specialty farm produce to a bigger market.

Xi pointed out the imperative to break new ground in reform and opening up. Guided by the result-oriented approach, well-calibrated steps must be taken alongside effective evaluation, so as to further deepen reforms and get all measures delivered to the last detail.

Xi urged cultivating markets with full competition to energize market entities of all types. He also encouraged Ningxia to harness major opportunities in Belt and Road cooperation and pursue greater opening-up with other parts of China and the wider world. Nurturing more market entities and an enabling environment for the open economy will lead to higher level of openness and thus contribute to higher quality development.
