(Mianyang News) The meeting which briefed the supervision of Sichuan¡¯s environmental protection problems by the Fifth Environmental Protection Supervision Group of the CPC central committee was held on December 22. Mianyang held anther meeting following the end of the provincial video conference. Deputy party secretary and mayor Liu Chao made arrangements for the implementation of the conference spirit. Ma Hua, director of the Standing Committee of the municipal People¡¯s Congress, Zhang Jinming, chairman of the municipal Committee of the Chinese People¡¯s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), and vice secretary of the municipal Party Committee, Fu Kang, attended the meeting.

Liu pointed out that the supervision of environmental protection problems is a major decision which is deployed, implemented and inspected by General Secretary Xi Jinping in person. The provincial Party Committee and the provincial government attach great importance to embracing the supervision of environmental protection problems by the Central Committee and to resolving the major problems in Sichuan¡¯s environmental protection, which is taken as such an important task by the secretary of the provincial Party Committee Wang Dongming and the governor Yin Li that they are deeply involved. At this meeting, the supervision group of the Central Committee officially delivered their feedback and issued a rectification directive, sounding the rectification clarion. Departments at all levels around the whole city should further improve their political stance, stick to ¡°Four Consciousness¡± and earnestly implement the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the CPC. Specifically, they should resolutely act upon the important strategic thinking of the ecological civilization construction proposed by General Secretary Xi Jinpin, consciously shoulder the task of constructing the ecological civilization as well as the political responsibility of rectifying major environmental problems. They should have the courage to face conflicts and problems and to walk the walk. They should be resolute in rectifying problems and never let go any of them so as to speed up the construction of a more beautiful Mianyang.

Liu Chao stressed that rectifying actions should be strengthened to truly resolve major problems in the construction of ecological civilization and the environmental protection. To truly solve the environmental problems and improve the environmental quality, a well-structured plan is needed. First, Mianyang should speed up the rectification in accordance with the official feedback from the supervision group of the Central Committee. Mianyang should take first move to solve the common problems shared by Sichuan province and the problems of its own and be resolute so as to achieve the best effect within the shortest time. Second, Mianyang should also try harder to promote the rectification in accordance with the feedback from the supervision group of the Central Committee. It is imperative for Mianyang to find out the causes for the delay of rectification, push itself harder and take more measures so as to accelerate the rectification of problems by taking more practical actions. Third, Mianyang should also synchronize to promote the rectification of other major environmental problems, which should be addressed the same as those reflected by the supervision group of the Central Committee.  Cases concerning letters and visits and complaints should also be properly addressed so as to truly resolve major environmental problems hassling the masses.

Liu Chao also said that it is not only a political requirement but also a political responsibility to make all efforts to rectify the environmental problems. Mianyang should take full responsibility, strictly follow the time schedule and work together to promote the rectification. It should also strengthen the division of responsibilities, establish a leadership team in charge of the rectification in accordance with the feedback from the supervision group of the Central Committee, strengthen coordination and ensure that responsibilities be put in place. It should also strengthen supervision, to say, implement focused supervision and private supervision in a normalized way. Problems can be rectified through warning letters, conversations and regular scheduling, thus combating the rebounding of the rectified problems or intangible variations. We need to strengthen the accountability system and take the supervision of environmental protection problems as an index for annual target assessment. We should also strengthen information disclosure, timely expose typical cases which violate against environmental protection laws, and actively accept the supervision from the news media and the public.

Municipal leaders, such as Li Yalian, Ma Jun, Zhang Xuemin, YueYong, Xia Fengjian, Yuan Fang, Wang Minghua, Jing Dazhong, Sun Fuquan, Zhao Yingchun and Luo Meng, municipal chief prosecutor Wu Changfu, secretary of the High-tech Zone Working Committee Xia Ming, director of the Administration Committee Dong Hong, secretary general of the Four Groups, deputy liaison secretary general and officials from counties, downtown areas, industrial parks and municipal departments attended the meeting.
