(Mianyang News) On January 2, Liu Chao (deputy municipal party secretary and mayor) held the special session to study and deploy the 2018 economic work. Deputy party secretary Fu Kang attended the session.

The meeting pointed out since last year, Mianyang has firmly adhered to the Xi Jinping¡¯s thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era as the guideline and conscientiously implemented the decision-making arrangements of the CPC Central Committee and the Provincial Party Committee and Government. We have taken the initiative to seize the new normal of economic development, conscientiously implemented the new development concept and upheld the underlying principle of pursuing progress while ensuring stability. We have ensured coordinated implementation of stablizing growth, promoting reform, adjusting structure, benefiting people's livelihood and preventing risks, so as to promote a stable and sustainable development of the economy in the whole city, showing a steady progress.

The session stressed that this year marks the first year of carrying out the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress and the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up. It is a crucial year in securing a decisive year in building a moderately prosperous society in all aspects, as well as implementing the "13th Five-Year Plan". It is also the first year that Mianyang starts its new journey in building a strong western economic city after its total economic output exceeded 200 billion yuan. It is of great significance to do a good job in economic work this year. We must take Xi Jinping's thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era as the guide, thoroughly implement the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress and the Central Economic Work Conference and fully implement the deployment made by the provincial Eleventh Party Congress, the provincial Party Committee, the Second Plenary Session of the Eleventh provincial party committee and the provincial economic work conference. We must adhere to the supply-side structural reform as the main line and promote high-quality development and accelerate the construction of strong western economy city throughout the economic work from beginning to end. We must promote Mianyang's economy to achieve greater breakthroughs on the ground of 200 billion yuan with all our efforts.

The session emphasized that we should maintain a high degree of responsibility to the fundamental well-being of the people in Mianyang and its long-term development. We should focus on economic construction with a strong sense of crisis. We should enhance the sense of mission and responsibility and unify the ideological actions with the analysis, judgment and arrangement of the municipal party committee and government. We should go all out to do a good job in all aspects of economic development and strive for progress without idle dream. First, we must accurately grasp the overall requirements. We should thoroughly study, understand and accurately grasp the scientific connotations and core essences of Xi Jinping's economic thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era. We should put the promotion of high-quality development and speeding up of the construction of a strong western economic city as our fundamental requirement for defining development goals, strategies and initiatives. We should expand the economic agreegate and promote the economic quality; maintain the speed and promote efficiency; carry out both vertical analysis and horizontal comparison. We should insist on adjusting structure, improving quality and increasing benefits while expanding the economic aggregate. We should carry out reforms in qualiy, effiency and power so as to promote the sustained and healthy economic and social development. Second, we must scientifically determine the development goals. We must adhere to the general principle of making progress while ensuring stability. Based on the decisions of central government and the province, and the actual condition of Mianyang's economic development, we should scientifically deternmine the annual economic development goals in accordance with the requirements of "higher than the provincial level of growth and expanding the status of the province's second largest city". We should make efforts to optimize the economic structure, to transform the mode of development and to shift the momentum of growth so as to ensure that the economy continues to maintain a relatively high growth rate. We should further expand the total economic aggregate, continuously improve developement quality and speed up the building of a strong western economic city with a high level of development, good industrial system, strong innovation ability, deep opening up, a sound market mechanism and coordinated development. Third, we must clarify and implement the accountability system. We should further implement the accountability system of all the counties and districts, the parks and municipal departments. We should formulate concrete and feasible "working road maps" and "time schedules" in the form of quantitative indicators and work responsibilities and carry out concrete economic tasks. We should form the ideological consensus and powerful cooperation in promoting high-quality development and speeding up the construction of a strong economic city in western China.

The session also makes arrangements for doing a good job in the current economic work and ensuring the realization of "good start" in the first quarter.
