Fellow deputies: in the past five years since the First Session of the Sixth Jiaxing Municipal People's Congress, Jiaxing not only accepted serious challenges and stood up to all tests, but also explored new ways and made new progress. Jiaxing Municipal Government adhered to giving priority to development, closely relying on and uniting the people in Jiaxing, freeing ourselves from old ideas, promoting the construction of economy, politics, culture, social and ecological civilization, and taking steady strides toward the road of scientific development and transformation.

  

Over the past five years, we worked towards maintaining steady economic growth and adjusting and optimizing industrial structures, accelerating the transformation and upgrading so that overall strength was strengthened substantially. Facing the severe impact of the international financial crisis, we firmly put into practice the guiding principles and arrangements of CPC Central Committee, CPC Provincial Committee and Provincial Government, put forward a series of measures to maintain economic growth and promote the adjustment of economic structure. We take moderate growth of investment as the most important work to promote steady economic growth, and launched the projects of "four double-hundred" and "one hundred 10-billion" in the five consecutive years, with an average annual investment in fixed assets over ¥120 billion Yuan. Taking promoting the construction of large platforms, key industries, projects and enterprises as a strong support for structural adjustment, we made the planning for developing six strategic emerging industries and for transforming and upgrading of key industries. Jiaxing Economic Development Zone and Jiashan Economic Development Zone was elevated to development zones at a national level, and 17 companies went public in Jiaxing over the past five years. With improving self-directed innovation capability as essentiality for adjusting economic structure, we pushed forward the construction of Jiaxing as a national pilot city of innovation and a sub-central city of regional innovation in Zhejiang Province. Financial departments at all levels invested ¥3.23 billion Yuan in science and technology development; the proportion of research and experimental development expenditures rose from 1.4 percent in 2006 of GDP to 2.2 percent; 129,000 talents were attracted and 30,000 patents were authorized. Taking intensive and economical use of resources and environmental protection as breakthroughs in structural adjustment, we vigorously drove forward the action plan of making clean the river, network, production and energy and of forestation and green channels, with the energy consumption for ¥10,000 Yuan GDP dropping by 20.6% compared with that in 2006. With the sustained growth in economic scale, development speed and quality simultaneously increased, and in 2011, the GDP, the total fiscal revenue and local revenues were 1.98 times, 2.5 times and 2.8 times more than those in 2006 respectively, and the proportion of three industries changed from 6.6: 59.9: 33.5 in 2006 to this year's 5.5 : 57.6 : 36.9.

 

Over the past five years, we have been devoting ourselves to the overall regional development, to integrating of urban and rural development and to optimizing development environment so that both the urban and rural areas have taken on a remarkably new look. We have made out and implemented Jiaxing's overall development plan to make the urban and rural layout more reasonable and perfect. Till now, the urban built-up area has been expanded to 88.1 square kilometers from 65.8 in 2006 and the urbanized rate up to53.3%. Infrastructure is more perfect with such roads and bridges open to traffic as Hangzhou-Pudong Highway, Shanghai-Jiaxing-Huzhou Highway, Hnagzhou Bay Bridge and Shanghai-Hangzhou High-speed Rail. What's more, the expressways connecting the central city and sub-center cities have come into service. In those five years, 212 kilometers of high-grade highways have been put into use; the ports are capable of handling 17. 35 million more tons; 12.59 million more KVA can be  transformed; 8 new sewage treatment plants and 619 kilometers of sewage interception pipelines have been put into operation, consequently the percentage of sewage disposal has been up to 85.4%. With the infrastructures and public services extending to new towns and communities, rural producing and living conditions have been improved greatly by being put more financial  input (growth from ¥ 2.83 billion of 2006 to ¥ 8.79 billion) to the affairs in terms of farmers, countryside and agriculture, building 1614 kilometers of rural roads, increasing 66 bus lines between rural and urban areas, integrating urban-rural water supply and building up first national electrified city in the new countryside.

 

Over the past five years, development vitality has been enhanced by our devoting ourselves to further deepening reform and opening up and to innovating our systems and mechanisms. The coordinated comprehensive reforms have been deepened in the rural and urban areas and great achievements have been made in Ten Reforms with its center being "Two for Two " whose aim is to optimize the land utilization system. We have accelerated the reform that resource factors were allocated through marketization and implemented the assignment system of industrial land and profit-oriented land by means of "bid, auction and listing". Positively we have moved forward the reform of multistep water price in water supply and took the lead in carrying out emission trading system in our country. The markets in terms of capital, technology and talents developed; the investment and financial systems were deepened; municipal state holding enterprises were restructured; corporate governance structure was more perfect; the environment for the private economy development was optimized and more measures were made to support the private enterprises, consequently whose percentage in GDP rose further. The volume of foreign trade, of foreign investment in Jiaxing and of Jiaxing's investment in foreign countries and regions grew to a new record. Total imports and exports grew to $28.48 billion from $12.6 billion of 2006, total incoming overseas capital in place $7.69 billion and investment in foreign countries and regions $ 0.83 billion. 34 of FORTUNE 500 firms settled in Jiaxin. We have made great efforts to intensify the cooperation with the other cities in the Changjiang Delta, to participate in the programs of the Grand Western China Development, of Central China Rise and of Northeast China Revitalization, to finish the task of helping to reconstruct the earthquake-hit areas of Sichuan, to move forward the work of aiding Tibet, Xinjiang and Qinghai to develop themselves, and to assist our counterparts by implementing the strategy of "Cooperation between Undeveloped Mountainous Regions and Developed Coastal Regions ". The strategies of "Going Global" and "Attracting Foreign Investment" were implemented simultaneously and harmoniously.

In the past five years, we have been striving to improve people's livelihood, social development and the social civilization in all aspects. We have accelerated the construction of the basic public service system that was balanced and was enjoyed by all the people of both rural and urban areas. On the people's livelihood improvement, over ¥ 60 billion from financial departments at all levels has been spent, whose percentage in the total fiscal spending has grown from 67.6% of 2006 to this year's 74.2%. Comprehensive social welfare system has been established in which employment, social insurance and public assistance supporting each other; urban unemployment rate has tended to fall for five consecutive years; the social pension insurance system has been implemented first in the rural and urban areas in our country; the multi-level insurance system has taken basic shape including the low-level insurance system and the ones whose insurance standards are 20% and 50% higher than the former; the fiscal spending at all levels on social security increased four times in the past five years. The income of the urban and rural residents increased steadily. Per capita disposable income for urban residents and the net income for rural residents reach 1.8 and 1.9 times more than those of 2006 respectively. The growth rate of the income of the rural residents ranks the first for 8 consecutive years in Zhejiang Province. Every social undertaking made progress: 15-year education has been made universal and every one receives an average 8.5 years of education; the system for the public health and the basic medical services tended to be more perfect; average life expectancy reached 79.5 years from 77 years of 2006; culture undertakings and culture industry are in prosperous development; public libraries has been established in all towns and villages; new progress has been made in the affairs of women, children, the elderly, ethnic, religion, foreign affairs, archives, chronicles, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and overseas Chinese; the sixth population census was carried out successfully; the Bureau for the New Resident Affairs was set up to study how to serve residents and manage their affairs through their residence cards; petition work, public security and the construction of emergency response system were further strengthened and such security tasks were conducted well in terms of Beijing Olympic Games and Shanghai Expo.

In the past five years, we have been striving to transform the government functions, improve our work style and ability to perform our duty with a view of strengthening  government construction. We voluntarily accepted NPC's supervision in terms of law abiding and law enforcement, accepted its supervising our work, reported our work to it in accordance with laws and answered its questions. We notified CPPCC of our work regularly and voluntarily, and accepted its democratic supervision. In those five years, we handled 1311 proposals made by the deputies to the NPC and 1702 proposes by the Members of CPPCC. Serious efforts were made to deepen the reform of administrative approval system and implement the measures of " 2 Concentrations and 2 Putting in Place". Consequently 47 administrative licensing items have been canceled in those five years. Transparency in our work was further improved by expanding government information disclosure and by establishing public inspection system of government information. The reform of public finance management was further deepened and such systems were established of department budget, treasury centralized paying and government procurement. The reform of power expansion in the strong counties and towns is moved forward and the reform of government institutions has been accomplished. Basic administrative costs were put under strict control by audit supervision and administrative supervision. Anticorruption was further strengthened by improving the Party conduct, by building a clean government, by fulfilling the the system of punishing corrupters and preventing corruption and by intensifying the investigation of those who are in violation of laws and disciplines.

Through our joint efforts, we have been granted in the past five years such honorable titles as National Civilized City, National Hygiene City, National Historical and Cultural City, National Model City for Two Supports, National Afforestation Model City, National Water-saving City, National Model City for Developing Undertakings of the Disabled, which resulted from our implementing Scientific Outlook on Development and which is an embodiment of economic and social transformation.

Fellow Deputies, grand and unforgettable achievements have been made in those five years under the right leadership of Zhejiang Provincial Committee of the CPC,  Zhejiang Provincial People's Government and Jiaxing Committee of the CPC, through the hard work and active support of Jiaxing's people and cadres, successive governments and all other sectors of the society. On behalf of Jiaxing People's Government, I would like to express our highest respect and heartfelt thanks to all the deputies and CPPCC members, to the people of the whole city who have made contributions in the various fields, to the personages of various social circles, to the People's Liberation Army and armed police forces that have rendered great support to our work, and to the overseas Chinese and international friends who have shown concern and supported Jiaxing's construction.

While we must also clearly realize that there are still many difficulties and problems in Jiaxing's economic and social activities: economic growth is made by excessive dependence on traditional development mode; the industry level is relatively low; independent innovation is weak; economic growth mode has not fundamentally changed; the issues in resources and environment are more serious; such factors supply as land and energy are all the more difficult; more task needs to be done in terms of energy saving, emission reduction, ecological protection and environmental management; the radiation ability and influence of central city and sub-center cities are not strong; more work needs to be done to improve the central city functions; there exist to varying degrees weak points in social development; in environment, education, health care and housing, etc. there still exist serious problems with which people are greatly unsatisfied, and social conflicts are increasing; The shift of government functions and the administrative efficiency are far from requirements of the reform, the economic development and people's expectation; there exist to some degrees formalism, bureaucracy and corruption somewhere in some government departments. As to those problems mentioned above, we must attach great attention to them and take effective measures to solve them.

  

II. The Development Targets and General Demands of the Next Five Years

The next five years from now is a strategic opportunity for us to push froward scientific development but also the hard times for economic and social transformation and upgrading. As to opportunities, we know the profound changes of the global situations are accelerating the adjustment of global industrial layout and the new science and technology revolution is bringing tremendous breakthroughs to the human society in various aspects; the long-term trend for better economic development of our country will remain and the upgrading of consuming and industrial structures is to arouse massive demand potential. Jiaxing can also find opportunities from presently implementing national strategies such as Regional Integration of Changjiang Delta and the construction of the Zhejiang Marine Economy Demonstration Area to participate, at a higher level and in broader fields, in cooperation at home and abroad and quicken transformation and upgrading. As to challenges, there still exist negative influences of the international financial crisis, hard economy recovery, and increasing instability and uncertainty of the development. At home, there coexist various conflicts and risks and more complex situations confronted by national macro-control. We will encounter more pressures from other regional competition of taking the lead in a new round of reform and development. In face of the new situations, we must remain sober, responsible and aware of the unexpected crises, strengthen our strategic planning and improve our response capability to strive to create grand situations of the scientific development.

In accordance with arrangement made by Jiaxing 7th Congress of Party Representatives, our guiding ideology for the next five years is that we should hold high the great banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics, follow the guidance of Deng Xiaoping Theory and the important thought of Three Represents and thoroughly implement the scientific outlook on development. With the scientific development and "richer people, stronger city" being the theme, with speeding up the transformation of the mode of economic development and promoting integration of urban and rural development being the guideline, and with reform and opening-up policy and innovation being our driving force, we should vigorously implement "Seven Strategies" to improve regional competitiveness, sustainability, city quality and functions, and people's life satisfaction. We should build Jiaxing in an all-round way into an innovative city, cultural ecological city, happy and harmonious city, a modern web garden city as well as a a well-off society that benefits all the people and lays a solid foundation for Jiaxing to take the lead in achieving fundamentally the modernization.

In order to do our work well in the coming five years, we must pursue the concept of development by transforming and upgrading economy, by benefiting the people and by offering guarantee. When it comes to development by transforming and upgrading economy, we should unswervingly transform economic development mode, promote industry upgrading through innovation and creation, accelerate the integration of urban-rural development and build Jiaxing into a resource-conserving and environment-friendly society with a view to fostering new  economic growth sources and arouse economic endogenous growth. When it comes to development benefiting the people, we should persist in taking economic development as the central task and consolidate constantly the material basis for the further livelihood improvement. With creating better livelihood for the people being the supreme goal of our work, we will spare no effort to resolve those problems that the people care about most, that are most directly connected with the people and that are most significant to the people and strive to make our people live a happier life with more dignity. When it comes to offering guarantee, we should make better resource allocation of land, capital, energy and environment to use them more economically and intensively. We should intensify scientific and technological innovation to make it play a key role in supporting our economic development. We should make better soft development environment by deepening system and mechanism innovation and speeding up the transformation of government functions for a higher service efficiency.

The significant progress should be obtained in the following important issues in the next five years:

With the construction of innovative Jiaxing as the center, great progress should be made in acceleration of transformation of the development mode and promotion of economic transformation and upgrading. The construction of innovative city at the national level will be further sped up by building the regional innovation system with the enterprise as the main body, the market as the orientation, and talents as the main impetus, by improving innovation mechanism that policy- decision departments, universities and research institutes can cooperate with each other, and bankers and intermediary agents may work more effectively, by clustering innovation resources, activating innovation factors and promoting industrialization and localization of innovation achievements.

To construct modern industry system favorable to Jiaxing. With the implement of "Two Exits and Two Entrances" and "Three Double Programs" being our focus, we are to develope modern service industry, strategic emerging industry and marine economy, to accelerate the upgrading of traditional competitive industry and to promote the transformation from the massive economic to the modern industrial clusters, to actively develope modern urban ecological agriculture to form modern agricultural development mode characterized by industrialized operation, standardized production and socialized service.

To further promote the reform in key areas and crucial links. The reform of resources marketization is to be deepened by expediting the improvement of the price formation mechanism of resources; the policies and measures are to be implemented to promote the non-public economy development with a view to encouraging and guiding private capital's entrance to such areas as infrastructure construction, livelihood improvement and the modern service industry; the management system reform concerning state-owned asset is to be deepened aiming at perfecting its supervision and operation and at optimizing the capital structure of state owned enterprises. We should promote the scientific development of Jiashan County as a pilot to form an all-directional opening pattern to realize the fast transformation of foreign trade development, to use foreign investment and cooperate with foreign countries in an innovate way with a view of bringing about  new advantages of the open economy. After five years of efforts, Jiaxing's economic strength is to increase obviously and structural adjustment is to obtain positive effects. By 2016, Jiaxing's GDP is to be over ¥ 400 billion with per capita GDP ( calculated on resident population basis ) over ¥ 90,000; the percentage of expenses in terms of research and experimental development in GDP  up to 2.7% and that of the service industry added value in GDP up to about 43%.

With the construction of the cultural ecological Jiaxing as the center, remarkable progress is to be made in coordinating urban-rural development and in improving Jiaxing's urban quality. With a view to realizing urban and rural integration, we are to improve in all dimensions the construction of "Two New Projects ", and deepen urban and rural coordinated reform aiming at the urban-rural common prosperity; with a view to realizing regional coordinated development, we are to coordinate the construction of Jiaxing's key infrastructure, the allocation of resources and the public service projects, aiming at the unification of Jiaxing's social and public policies. We are to strengthen the close interconnection of Jiaxing's key traffic projects with those of Hangzhou and Shanghai, participate actively in labor division and quicken Jiaxing's interconnection with Hangzhou and Shanghai in terms of social security and undertakings aiming at improving the integration with those two cities; with a view to improving Jiaxing's urban function, we are to do our utmost to achieve Jiaxing's organic renewal and improvement of Jiaxing's urban supporting functions aiming at enhancing Jiaxing's exquisite, legalized and informationized management and at transforming urban extensive development to intensive development; with a view to strengthening urban cultural soft power, we are to implement "Six Cultural Projects ", improve public cultural service and cultural industry aiming at enhancing cultural impetus towards the economic and social development; with a view to improving the living environment, we are to carry out the Action Plan of making clean the river, network, production and energy and of forestation and green channels, and establish a long-term mechanism in terms of environment protection aiming at constructing Jiaxing's afforestation belts, leisure corridors and ecological shelters. After 5 year's efforts, Jiaxing's urban-rural integration will be further deepened, and to a greater extent Jiaxing will be characteristic of a modern web city of garden with clearer rivers and lakes and with customs and habits of ancient Wu State and Yue State. (BC 770-476)

With the construction of the happy and harmonious city as the center, remarkable progress is to be made in equalizing basic public service and in improving people's welfare. With the full employment of the rural and urban residents as a target, we will improve an overall rural-urban mechanism of employment to prevent "zero-employment" households from appearing in Jiaxing. With rural and urban residents' income steady growth as a target, we will encourage both employment and self-employment, both initial distribution and redistribution of residents' income; we will realize residents' income growth with economic development, labor remuneration's growth with the improvement of labor productivity, and coordination between wealth creation and equal distribution of the wealth. With establishing a perfect social security system as a target, we'll make efforts to integrate various social security systems existing nowadays to make it able to cover almost all rural and urban residents. With boosting residents' overall development as a target, we'll take measures to reasonably allocate educational resources to move further the educational modernization; we will deepen the reform of medical and health system to further improve the rural and urban medical service and integrate those medical resources so as to reduce people's medical costs noticeably; we will launch extensive fitness programs for the public and keep a moderate birth rate to realize harmonious development of population, society and economy. With innovative social management service as a target, we'll set up various social organizations and associations, improve those mechanisms of conflict early warning, of protecting mass benefits and of public security management and control so as to build Jiaxing into the most secure city in the Changjiang Delta. After 5 years' efforts, remarkable improvement is to be seen in people's livelihood and equalization of social basic public service. The income of urban and rural residents will be redoubled based on that of 2010.

III. Main Tasks of 2012

Well begun is half done. 2012 is the first year of our new administration. Therefore we must begin well and lay a solid foundation for the full fulfillment of the targets of the coming five years. Confronted with more complicated international economy environment and more serious resource constraints, we must take all these into consideration and spare no efforts to tackle those disadvantages in a positive way we should sufficiently estimate possible difficulties and risks and make use of any advantageous ahead to maintain steady and fast economy development and social harmony and stability with "To adjust economy structure, sustain economy growth, stress investment, prosper real economy, promote innovation, optimize environment, improve people's livelihood and seek harmony." as our guideline.

Taking these advantages and disadvantages in consideration, we have set the following major targets for this year's national economic and social development: GDP will grow by about 10%; local revenue by 10%; per capita income for urban residents and per capita net income for rural residents over 11%; the share of budget for R&D in GDP will be 2.3%; the targets set by Zhejiang Province of energy saving and emission reduction will be achieved; the rise in the CPI will be held around 4% in check; sixty thousand jobs will be created in the urban areas; the urban registered unemployment rate will be held under 4%; the natural population growth rate should stay within 1%. We propose that special efforts be made this year in the following aspects:

1. Every effort is to be made to maximize the resource factors, i.e., to strengthen those factors' supporting the economy by creative application of land, fund and energy. First, the most severe system of land management, land protection and land conservation must be implemented to ensure the land safety. The policy and supporting measures to carry out "Two Exits and Two Entrances" must be made to guide the low-end industries to exit out of the market to make room of 8000 mu for the high-end industries. We will clear those lands having received supply approval but without being supplied, and having been supplied but without being put into use; we will speed up the second development of the urban construction land and circulate the urban stock land to the greatest extent.

IV. Working Harder to Improve the Government Itself

Fellow deputies, the new government assumes the important historical responsibilities of promoting scientific development, enriching the people and making the city prosperous. All people in Jiaxing placed their earnest expectation on us. Inspired by the mission and goals and urged by responsibilities and expectations, we should, standing at a new historical starting point, intensify our efforts to improve ourselves comprehensively and facilitate the transformation of economy and society through the government transformation.

On the principle of being just and transparent, we should strive to build a government under the rules of law. We consciously accepted legal supervision and work supervision from National People's Congress and its standing committee and democratic supervision from the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. We will also conscientiously accept reasonable suggestions from democratic parties, federation of industry and commerce, independents and mass organizations. We should make great efforts to perfect administrative decision-making mechanism, list democratic procedures like public participation, expert argumentation, risk assessment and legitimacy review as a must in major policy decisions, strengthen tracking assessment on the implementation of important policy decisions, and enhance abilities in scientific and democratic policy-making. We should reinforce our work on formulating, the filing for records and review of the normative documents, attach great importance to administrative review and responses and standardize administrative law enforcement procedure and law enforcement behavior. We should intensify our efforts to achieve open and transparent operation of administrative power, make government information open to the public, and voluntarily accept supervision from all sectors of the society to keep administrative power open to the public.

 Based on innovative management, we endeavor to build a service-oriented government. We vigorously promote system and mechanism innovation of the government under the requirement of scientific, fine and standardized management. Making comprehensive use of planning, industrial policy, fiscal and tax policy as well as price, we will improve the economic regulation and market supervision so as to reduce intervention in micro economic operation. We will explore to build the mechanism of government purchase for the public services and encourage more industry associations and social organizations to provide public products and services. We should perfect full range agent service and online system of approval services, clear away or standardize the non-licensing administrative approvals and further enhance standardization level of administrative approval. We should accelerate e-government construction, actively develope performance assessment, intensify development and utilization of the information resources and promote resource sharing and business collaboration. We will reify information disclosure in terms of  government budget and final accounts and expand information disclosure of the  departmental budget. We will optimize the financial expenditure structure and mode, strengthen governmental debt management and risk prevention and control. With the downward shift of the management focus, we rationally divide the management privilege, build sound and overall coordination mechanism in the whole city and timely address the major cross-regional issues.

Focusing on the enforcement, we endeavor to build a highly efficient government. The government efficiency matters a lot in investment environment and  development speed. All the government staff should strengthen their efforts in learning methods for economic development and social harmony and transfer their knowledge into strategies for development, into measures to facilitate their work and into the abilities in problem-solving. We will pay great attention to carrying forward truthful and practical style, sturdily move forward program of “Double Thousand and Double Hundred” to pay more visits to the villages and enterprises for more real information. We should look at things from the standpoint of the grassroots, enterprises and general public and strive to analyze the facts, tell the truth, seek effective ways and stress effectiveness.

Always being high-spirited and working with stamina and diligence, we should make our best efforts to ensure the implementation of all the work with spirit of being courageous in front of difficulties and being responsible before conflicts and risks. We comprehensively put in place such systems as service commitment, "first-be-inquired responsibility”, completing formalities within a limited period of time and efficiency supervision. When making major policy decisions concerning overall situations, we will set time limitation, standard and requirement so as to make sure that we have responses and detailed settlement to and of each and every piece of work, resolutely eliminating the phenomenon of sloth administration featuring “no push, no action”.

Guaranteed by the institutional construction, we should strive for a clean and honest government which can win the people. Rights without supervision or restriction will easily lead to corruption; therefore we should always hold in awe and veneration people, law, organization and public opinion and strictly enforce every regulation under the principle of clean and honest government. We should persist in governing persons, affairs and rights with institutions and further intensify the construction of corruption punishment and prevention system starting from key areas and crucial links. We should strengthen auditing and supervision, pay great attention to the monitoring and restriction in right operation and prevent corruption from the very beginning and launch in depth various campaigns of special regulations and checking unhealthy tendencies and malpractices. We will punish those who break law and regulations severely without any leniency, strive to build an economical institution, accelerate the reform of management system of consumption on public funds and using official vehicles for public affairs, and strictly control and reduce expenditures of government departments on official receptions, vehicles and overseas trips, and divert more financial and material resources to settling the issues most concerned by the general public and win the people's trust and support with our action.
