Constructions of administration and law enforcement team were strengthened and various inappropriate law enforcement behaviors were strictly investigated.

1.8 Obstacles of our system and mechanism were cracked down through reform and the inner vitality and energy of development were released faster. According to the uniformed arrangement of the provincial Party committee, we persisted in further reforming in fields of administration, economy, ecology, rural places, culture, society and others directed by problems, and especial progress was made in streamlining administration and delegating power to the lower levels, relieving the burden on enterprises and strengthening social government. A new round of reform in provincial government organizations was completed with 57 internal organizations and 632 authorized employees were cut down.

In the past year, our province also gained new achievement in national defense mobilization, talents, ethnics, religions, foreign affairs, affairs concerning nationals living abroad, affairs concerning with Taiwan Province, earthquakes, meteorology, surveying and mapping, archives and others.

Dear fellow deputies, to gain these achievements took us a lot of efforts. These achievements were results of the powerful leadership of our provincial Party committee, were results of the supervision and support from provincial People’s Congress and People's Political Consultative Committee, and were results of the efforts of the whole province. On behalf of the Shaanxi provincial government, I express high respect to all people, army commanders, armed police and people’s police in our province and heartfelt thanks to all members of the People’s Congress and People's Political Consultative Committee and people from all sectors of the society for your strong support in our government’s work.

Apart from affirming our achievements, we should also see some severe problems and deep-seated conflicts standing in the way of Shaanxi’s development. And the problems mainly include: structural adjustment and pollution control are very difficult because of the constraints of resources and environment. Impetus for S&T innovation and vitality of market participants are still insufficient. Income of urban and rural residents is still lower than the national average level. More efforts should be devoted to market supervision, social governance and public serving abilities. Constructions of law-based government and anti-corruption will still be a long-term task. As for these problems, we will try our best to solve in our later work.

2.The basic rules of our province’s development in the “New Normal” and the main indexes of 2015

The macroeconomic environment is facing profound changes currently. The central government made the strategic assumption that China’s economic development had entered the ‘New Normal”. To keep intermediate or high-speed growth and to march towards middle or high level are not only the development necessity of the “New Normal”, but also the basic rules guiding our future work. “New Normal” means variation in speed, optimization in structure and shift in impetus with challenges coexisting with opportunities. We must stand the gap between actual growth and expected target, the pressure from fluctuated decrease of the economic growth, the pressure from structural modification faced by resource dependence and the extensive development driven by investment, and the pressure from the long-term deep-seated conflicts in our whole province and many problems that already being solved by the east emerged at the same time. But we are also endowed with great opportunities. We have confidence that under the firm leadership of the provincial Party congress, we can turn pressure into impetus and challenges into opportunities. We have confidence because the strategies of One Belt And One Road (OBAOR), innovation-driven and giving priority to China Western Development are implanted by our country, thus we will gain more support.  We have confidence because the central government has endowed major missions to Shaanxi Province such as the new engine of scientific development in the west, new heights of inland reform and opening up, and model of new urbanization with Chinese characteristics, which means Shaanxi has become more important in the national overall situation. We have confidence because we adjust our industry structures early following the principle of “for the existed ones, we should adjust their structure to free up space; while for the added ones, we should optimize their structures to expand space”, and developing pattern led by strategic emerging industry multi-elements is forming and is destined to lead the way in the new round of competitions. We have confidence because when all provinces are suffering from the pain of “The Three Period Superimposed”, Shaanxi Province has more prominent advantages in science, technology and culture, especially the geological position— the center of China has greatly expanded our economic domain and were are totally capable of catching up and surpassing. We must correctly understand the “New Normal”, take the initiative to adapt to the “New Normal” and positively lead the ‘New Normal”. And we should create a new situation of “Rich Shaanxi, Harmonious Shaanxi, and Beautiful Shaanxi” using systematic thinks according to the requirements of “Synchronization of industrialization, informatization, urbanization, agricultural modernization. Reform should be constantly furthered and breakthrough development in key fields and links should be achieved to drive overall development and to further release bonus of our system. Transformation and upgrade should be accelerated. Improving of advantaged backbone industries and cultivating of new pillar industries should be done at the first time to construct a modern industry system with Shaanxi characters. Opening up should be expanded in all aspects and industry, while industrial structure adjustment and the development of export-oriented economy should be promoted as a whole, by which new economic growth points should be constantly generated. The philosophy of Innovation-driven should be strengthened. Innovation system with enterprise as the main participant should be built and the endogenous growth impetus should be inspired furthest. The ecological bottom line should never be crossed and integrated governance of mountains, waters, forests, lands and lakes should be carried out to fully promote green development, low-carbon development and cyclic development. We should also keep improving people’s livelihood, cover the bottom line, improve our system, promote the expanding of benefits to provide  people in our province a more happy and healthy life with dignity and confidence.

In 2015, the general idea of government’s work is as following: to coordinately promote the work of transforming development model, modifying structures, promoting reforms, benefiting people and preventing risks through further reform and opening up, focusing on the improvement of development quality and efficiency, keeping economy in a reasonable range, persisting the keynote of seeking progress in stability and fully carrying out the spirit of the important speeches made by General Secretary of the CPC Xi Jinping in the 18th National Congress of the CPC, the third and fourth plenary sessions of the 18th CPC Central Committee. Our main expected goals are: to maintain a 10% GDP growth, 12% local revenue growth, less than 4% registered urban unemployment rate, 11% urban residents income growth, 12% rural residents income growth, around 3%CPI, 3.2% less energy consumptions per GDP, 0.5% less sulfur dioxide, 1.5% less ammonia nitrogen emissions, 6% less oxynitride emissions. One thing that needs clarification is that the development goals set for the ‘New Normal’ are anticipated, regional and steering goals. Especially the economy growth being set 2 to 3 percent higher than the national one is not only the rigid demand to ensure employment and livelihood, but also the pursuits of building a moderately prosperous society and is not only the in the need of gathering development confidence, but also corresponds with the reality that Shaanxi grew faster than the whole nation for years. So the goal gives consideration to the necessity and possibility, the current and the future. We should keep calm, and take initiative to work. We should make sure that although the growing rate is adjusted, the growing trend should be contained, and the quantity grows along with quality. We should make sure that more brilliant achievements will be created in the “New Normal”.

3. Main tasks in 2015

We should reform the operation system of state-owned enterprises and the system of benefit packages of people in charge, strive to develop mixed ownership economy, and accelerate the building of modern enterprise systems in cultural enterprises. We should eagerly promote the market constructions of lands, electricity, natural gas, water and other factors, modify government priced catalogue, and free the price of commodities and service that have competitive conditions. We should eagerly reform financial and taxation system, innovate financial investment mechanism through integrating special funds, changing appropriation into investing and other ways, expand the pilot spots of changing business tax into added-value tax, fully implement the price-depended taxation system of coal resources and clear and specify preferential tax policies. We should build consumer finance companies and financial leasing companies, strive for breakthroughs in private banks pilots, and carry forward the “Going Out” of banks of our province. We should complete the registering and certificating of the rights of rural lands, explore and build trading markets of rural property rights.

Streamlining administration and delegating power to the lower levels should be given priority and reform of administrative management system should be furthered. We should carry forward the reform in examination and approval system, keep downsizing administrative licensing projects at the provincial level, and clear non-administrative-licensing examination and approval system in all aspects, keep the management of directory of examination, approval and charges. We should eagerly reform commercial system, allow “one license for more than one addresses” and “more than one license for one address”, try the implementation of “merging of three certificates”, further relax the registration limits for market participants, perfect the systems of social credit and publishing of corporations’ annual reports and a directory of poorly-operated enterprises, and prepare a responsibility list of people who give permission and supervision. We should further the reform of government organizations in cities and counties, give more support to municipalities with independent planning status, perfect the management system of counties under direct management of the provincial government, accelerate the comprehensive report in towns and counties and give support qualified places in setting up town-level cities. Reform of public institutions should be carried out according to their classifications and experiment on the reform of corporate governance structure should be implemented sooner. The management of government debt should be specified and the registration of real estate should be carried forward.

The improvement of comprehensive governance should be taken as the key points and reform in various social fields should be done well. We should enforce the buildings of the governments’ social governance capabilities, separate industrial associations and chambers of commerce from administrative bodies within a definite time, and the government should buy more public service. We should adopt grid management of cities, construct supervision teams at the basic level of food and drugs, and strength the management of internet and information safety. We should further the reform on management of the social organizations, strengthen the supervision and assessment of the third party, build unified and normative standard and assessment systems of community work, and well complete the 9th transition of village committees. We should assure the regulatory responsibilities of the government and the participants’ responsibilities of enterprises on safety in production, perfect the system of the troubleshooting, prevention and control of hidden dangers, and firmly contain serious and extra serious accidents. We should perfect the legal aid system, improve the linkage system of people’s mediation, administrative mediation and judicial mediation, and legalize the letter petition work.

Social contradictions should be positively prevented and defused, and people’s legal interests should be protected. Ethnic work in new circumstances should be carefully done and religious affairs should be managed by law. The propaganda and education system to popularize laws should be improved, and the legal awareness of the whole society should be strengthened. We should innovate three-dimensional social crime prevention and control system, build working mechanism with down-forwarding barycenter and sinking power, enforce the comprehensive governance of key districts and places, further the constructions of Safe Shaanxi, and enable people to live and work in peace, contentment and safety. 

3.3 Construction of new starts of the Silk Road Economic Belt should be accelerated by seizing the opportunities
Bringing In should be combined with Going Out. Businesses and investment attraction along with export-oriented economic development should be promoted in coordination. We should combine national treatment with “negative list”, further relax restrictions towards foreign capital in commerce circulation, e-commerce, education, medical treatment and others. We should well construct Shaanxi-Korea Cooperation Zone, China-Russia Silk Road High Technology Industry Park and China-Central Asia Economic Cooperation Zone, actively try to make the cooperation project between Chinese and Singapore governments to be located in our province, and fully implement the regional collaborative planning of the Yellow River’s Golden Delta in Shanxi, Shaanxi and Henan provinces. We should cooperate more closely with Central Asian countries, Australia and other countries in resource exploration and development, accelerate the development of shale gas, and encourage the backbone enterprises in equipment manufacturing, aviation, automobiles, and electronic information, support Yangling in building foreign aid training center of agricultural technologies of OBAOR and building projects of water-saving agriculture, stock breeding, and bioengineering in foreign countries, and lead enterprises of construction materials, food, spinning, cement and photovoltaic to release their production capacity in Central Asian countries. Tax refund policies should be used fully and flexibly to consolidate the dominant positions of juice, heavy trucks, and petroleum drill and exploitation equipment, increase the export share of electronic information products, airplanes and components and parts, and promote service outsourcing with great effort. We should actively trace and implement major investment-attracting projects that have been signed such as Shaanxi-Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao, achieve 4.6 billion dollars of foreign investment in actual use, introducing 540 billion Yuan of domestic investment, 30 billion dollars of import and export among which 15 billion dollars are export.

Functions of the special Customs controlling zone should be kept integrating and optimizing and new models of inland free trade should actively explored. We should take the chance of Xi’an Customs being approved to copy the system of Shanghai Free Trade Zone, accelerate the building of a fair, unified and efficient system and mechanism, improve the level of informatization in all aspects, join the world in the fields of processing, logistics, account settlement and others, and well finish the preparation and application for Silk Road Economic Belt Free Trade Zone. We should cooperate more closely with port cities focusing on improving work efficiency of customs clearance, support Baoji in applying for high-tech comprehensive bonded zone, and actively facilitate trade. We should accelerate the building of aviation cities and railway logistics distribution centers along the Silk Road Economic Belt, establish energy trading platform among the five countries in Central Asia, increase international airline and cargo flights, enhance the operation capacity of Chang’an International Cargo Flight, and promote the integration of road transport and air transport and interconnection and interworking of transportation, logistics and information facilities. We should strive to become the national pilot for foreign exchange management and reform, explore offshore financial business, and support Xi’an in applying for cross-border electronic commerce.

Various cooperative communication mechanisms should be further improved, and international communication in all aspects should be carried forward with great effort. We should perfect the round-table conference mechanism of cities in Silk Road Economic Belt, persuade countries to set consulates in Shaanxi, and strive to find more sister provinces, states and cities with more countries. We should rely on Euro-Asia Economic Forum to hold the First Trade Fair among Member Countries of Shanghai Cooperation Organization, hold the Xi’an-Quanzhou Dialogue of Start Cities of OBAOR, well hold Silk Road Economic and Trade Cooperation International Pavilion of the Investment and Trade Forum for Cooperation between East and West China, Agricultural Hi-Tech Fair, the 2nd Silk Road International Arts Festival, Sun Simiao Medicine Culture Festival of China and others. We should support Xi’an Jiaotong University, Northwest University and other universities in running schools jointly or establish cooperation with the national universities of Central Asian Countries, accelerate the construction of Central Asia education and training bases, and promote deeper cooperation in education with an emphasis on teenagers. We should further international cooperation in cultural tourism, jointly launch preservation of cultural relics and archaeological researches with countries alongside the Silk Road, and further improve the visibility and influence of Shaanxi culture among foreign countries.

3.4 Strive to build a new-style urbanization model with Chinese characteristics
It is imperative to innovate population management and service model to speed up the urbanization of people transferred from agriculture. Reform plan for the household registration system should be issued to create step-by-step a housing guarantee system that covers all permanent residents. The reform of rural land system should be promoted in a prudent way. Companies should better implement their responsibility for paying various types of fees and it is important to include rural migrant workers into the basic old-age insurance system of urban employees and extend occupational injury, unemployment and maternity insurance to more rural migrant workers. It is also imperative to include rural migrant workers into the basic medical insurance for urban residents and allow rural workers out of permanent residents to enjoy basic medical insurance according to the law. It is also urgent task to incorporate the compulsory education for children of migrant workers into the education development framework of various levels, to provide guarantee through government subsidy for those students who have no access to public school, to encourage children of migrant workers to participate in entrance exams of high school and university. We should also support the set-up of more training bases for migrant workers in universities and vocational schools and improve regular labor-rights protection and supervision system for migrant workers. It is also important to create provincial financial transfer payment system taking permanent residents as a key factor and improve the cost distribution mechanism for urbanization of people transferred from agriculture, which involves government, companies and individuals. The city investment fund should be regulated and developed.

It is important to implement new-style urbanization planning of the whole province, to improve the quality of urban development. The first is to identify the city positioning and development intensity scientifically. We should provide guidance for city and county governments in the formulation and revision of relative plans and start the formulation and planning of organic towns, and launch pilot experiments of “unifying multiple regulations” in Yulin, Fuping and Shiquan, start setting development boundaries in Xi’an, Baoji and Hanzhong. The second is to continue the improvement of “one city, one policy” development model, and further promote the construction of Great Xi’an by combing efforts of cities around the city, and provide support for the exploration of new development model for “Xi’an-Xianyang Development Zone” in areas of administration system, project construction and other types of work. We will give support to Baoji, Yulin and Hanzhong in their establishment of regional central cites, focus on the construction of 43 key counties, 35 demonstration towns and 31 famous cultural tourism towns. The third is to improve the city infrastructure by increasing occupancy rate in government-subsidized housing projects and speeding up the service facilities for on-going projects. Newly-built projects will give more attention to location livability and fair, open and transparent allocations. The newly-built government-subsidized houses amount to 163 thousand and renting subsidies are distributed to 18.7 thousand households. Renovation plan for shanty areas should be issued and cover 267.7 thousand houses per year. It is important to improve city facilities in a comprehensive way, increasing capacities in power supply, water supply and discharge, thermal power supply, communication services, to renovate more crossing-border roads of towns and counties, to improve public transport network, to develop parking lot towers, to design the marketplaces and supermarkets for people’s better convenience. The fourth is to promote fine management of cities, and resolve public-concerned issues of transport congestion, city appearance, lack of public space and services. It is suggested to use more information technology to lift up city management, speed up the construction of smart cities, advocate the healthy way of life, and widely carry out activities on constructions of Sanitary City, Park City, Forest City and Cultural City.  

We should encourage innovations to promote integration of urban and rural areas, and organically combine Beautiful Village, migration of residents, precise poverty alleviation, merging of small villages to form big villages, and building of new rural communities. We should more deeply carry out infrastructural constructions in rural areas and extend public service system to provide farmers with access to city life. There should be a migration of 110 thousand households or about 400 thousand people for avoiding natural disasters or alleviating poverty; in southern Shaanxi, about 60 thousand households or more than 200 thousand people join the migration; in northern Shaanxi, there are about 40 thousand households or about 160 thousand people, and in the north of Qinling Mountain and Weihe River, there are 10 thousand households and 40 thousand people. About 1 million people should shake off poverty. Renovation of rural living environment should be carried out in 42 counties and 21 towns, plan should be worked out to protect old traditional villages and the plan of clearance of rubbish in rural areas should be launched for the next 5 years; power grid renovation project is going to be launched and more than 6 thousand mile roads in rural areas will be repaired; about 2.2 million people begin to gain access to safe drinkable water. College students should be encouraged to work in rural areas and dedicated workers should be designated to scaled rural communities and about 1,000 new-style rural communities should be built. 

3.5 Resolve environmental problems through more patience, more determination and larger pace
It is the next-step plan to improve federated air pollution alarm and control system and further promote the action plan of “Fight against Smog and Protect Blue Sky”. It is suggested to promote the clean use of coal energy, adjust energy structure, promote clean discharge, implement co-generation of heat and power, the technology of denitration dedusting and the “two Ten- billion” natural gas utilization project, featuring the dismantling and renovating of coal-fired boilers in the 100 miles surrounding Xi’an city with the purpose of zero coal usage. It is also encouraged to manage vehicle exhaust by removing all “yellow-label vehicles” registered prior to 2005 and about 100 thousand old cars and to promote new-energy vehicles. Regular monitoring of construction sites and road dusts should be strengthened and more than 90% traffic lanes of Guanzhong area should be cleaned with machines. It is prohibited to burn crop straws and rubbish in the open air. A provincial air pollution alarm and control system should be established to make preparations for haze that unfavorable weather triggers.

Focus should be put on protection of Qinling Mountain, regulation of Weihe River and promotion of ecological protection. It is important to implement Qinling Protection Regulation and improve protection and management mechanism, to fight against unlawful construction, mining or quarrying activities in Qinling area, and to build Qinling National Central Park. Cooperation within the province and with other provinces should be created and monthly water quality monitoring system, quarterly assessment and regular announcement mechanism should be established. A three-year action plan for regulating Weihe River should be launched to regulate the water system in Guanzhong area by focusing on Weihe River regulation and the diversion project from Han River to Weihe River and the systematic planning of the watery system of Guanzhong Area. The construction of dikes, water storage and flood detention areas, and ecological protection of wetlands should be further promoted. The regulation of Han River and Dan River should be carried out, the water pollution alarm and prevention system should be established, and cooperation projects with other provinces should be implemented, to obtain national policy support on water conservation area of the central route of the Diversion Project from South to North. Protection of natural forests, the shelter forests in northeast, north and northwest China and regulation of small watersheds should be continued. It is necessary to start a new round of “return cultivated lands to forests” project, plant “million mu forests” and conserve million mu wetlands. The application for Hongjiannao National Natural Protection Zone should be further pushed forward. Regulation of coal goaf, subsidence areas and areas vulnerable to geological disasters should be further strengthened. Soil remediation demonstration project should be implemented, and contamination of heavy metal, dangerous chemical articles and waster should be curbed.

It is important to fully play the effect of structural adjustment and further save energy and resources, to implement a more strict environmental access mechanism, to better control environmental resources and introduce an assessment system for energy-saving and reduction of emissions, to fully promote cultivated land protection, water and energy saving. We should ensure balance between removed and returned cultivated lands, speed up the planning of basic agricultural lands and ensure the scale and quality of cultivated lands. We should better control exploitation and use of water resources, the water usage efficiency and pollution control of water functional areas, and implement dual control of regional underground water exploitation volume and the water level. Energy saving policies should further apply to industry, construction, transport and public institutions, and we should remove steel, cement, electrolytic aluminum and plate glass industries that have not reached standard and small power plant below 100,000kw. This year we should achieve a removal of backward capacity of 640,000mt and saving of 189,000mt coal. Support should be given to the experiment of national major functional areas at Ankang, Zhouzhi and Zhidan and the national recyclable economy demonstration zone at Shangluo area. Supportive policy should be made to establish sewage water treatment factory operation mechanism at the whole province, and paid resource usage and ecological compensation system should be improved to implement experiments in energy saving and transactions of carbon emission rights, emission rights and water rights.

3.6 Overall planning for guarantee and improvement of people’s livelihood
A more proactive employment policy should be put in place that focuses on college graduates, demobilized soldiers and urban residents with low income; the employment and business creation policy system should be further improved. College student internship system should be widely applied at the government, state-owned enterprises and public institutions. We should increase the number of public welfare jobs, offer free professional training to the impoverished people, and relax limitations on the amounts of personal small-amount loan and time limit of interest subsidy to promote employment rate and business start-up. We plan to provide jobs to 360,000 more people in cities, and more than 80% college graduates should get their jobs after graduation and 5.9 million rural laborers should be transferred. 

Social security system for both urban and rural areas should be further improved. The testing area for “combing five types of insurance” should be expanded; occupational injury insurance should cover all workers, and the insurance should cover more individual business and people with flexible employment; the Old-age insurance should be reformed in government and public institutions to ensure the bottom line. Protecting those in urgent need, improving policy sustainability and sustainability should be focused when enhancing social assistance, improving the minimum guarantee system for urban residents and five types of guarantee systems for rural residents; more care should be given to children of migrant workers, women and old people. Protection of the rights of handicapped people should be further increased, social welfare and charity should be accelerated; the targets of social security system should be more precisely categorized and differentiated, including increase of basic allowance for those retired from enterprises, increase of minimum standard of basic old-age compensation and basic medical insurance compensation standard for urban and rural residents, the increase of compensation standard for minimum guarantee and interim relief subsidies, to make the public finance system more transparent and beneficial to more people.

To provide more satisfying education, it is important to implement the second-phase of Three-year Action Plan for Pre-school Education, and to increase the financial subsidy to 1,300 yuan each year for each pre-school child. We should renovate and build 150 public kindergartens, actively promote the construction of primary school and middle schools in those areas where compulsory education is poor. It is necessary to build village primary schools and testing education points, to promote reform of education zone, and rotation system of schoolmaster sand teachers. We should promote the balanced development of compulsory education, diversify high school education, scale up vocational education for better practical utility, further promote the internalized development of high education, strengthen special education, and encourage and regulate social forces in building schools.

To improve medical guarantee capacity, it is important to deepen reform of public hospitals and medicine supply system, carry forward reform testing in one city and ten counties and improve segmented clinical system. “Thirty-thousand Project” should be continued and the construction of Northwest Medical School should be accelerated; support should be given to the co-creation of universities between Tongchuan City and Beijing University of Chinese Medicine. It is encouraged to integrate maternity and child health care and family planning resources, start basic health care projects for pregnant women, and implement award policy on family planning. It is also suggested to relax limitations on social-funded hospitals, provide equal treatment in aspects of designated medical insurance, professional title appraisal and qualification evaluation, implement multiple-site license policy for doctors and provide safe, cheap and convenient medical services.

It is important to speed up the establishment of modern public cultural service system that is convenient, fair, covering both urban and rural areas and can satisfy people’s basic needs. More investments should be made into cultural business and a long-term mechanism that featuring government-purchased public cultural service should be put in place. We should start preparation work for the 11st National Cultural Art Festival, speed up venue of construction, and implement the plan of “one art work for one city”. Progress should be made in building new provincial museum and folk cultural art center; cultural sports auditorium construction should be accelerated. TV and Radio should enter each rural household; cultural heritage protection plan should be made and implemented; reading activities and sports activities for all residents should be widely implemented; People’s spiritual cultural needs should be met.

4. To speed up the construction of a law-based government

This year is the first year of promotion of rule of law in all aspects. It is important to combine the achievements of mass line education activities, and further promote the education of “self-discipline and being more practical”, to strengthen the party’s style of work. It is important to build up a law-based government, with its function scientific, responsibilities lawful, enforcement of law strict, efficiency high, open, fair, free from corruption, law-abiding and honest.

It is necessary to strictly implement government responsibilities according to the law. The responsibilities should include: authorization by law comes first, boundary of power be clarified, legalization be promoted in institutions, functions, limits of authority procedures and responsibilities. We should create a power list, a responsibility list and a negative list, issue without delay administration permit, administrative punishment, administrative compulsion, and administrative imposition, and prohibit power outside legal boundary. We should better implement responsibilities including public service, market supervision, social administration and environmental protection, and decentralize the power and streamline the government institutions. It is also imperative to resolve issues related to people’s lives, including food safety, city management and environmental pollution.

Efforts should be made to improve legal procedures for public participation, expert evaluation, risk assessment, legality investigation and collective discussion and decision. It is suggested to improve government legal adviser system, build modern think tanks, promote on-line administrative approval, and establish lifelong accountability mechanism for key decision. We should ensure that the policy-making system is scientific procedure is appropriate, process transparent and responsibilities clearly-distributed. It is imperative to speed up the improvement of administrative regulation making procedure, to increase laws and regulations made by legal institutions and third-party institutes, to expand legal channels for people’s involvements into government legislation and prohibit legalization of department interests. 

It is important to regulate administrative legal enforcement activities, delegate law-enforcement power according to responsibility and rights of different levels of government, promote comprehensive administrative law enforcement and resolve overlapping responsibilities and multiple law enforcement issue. It is imperative to establish a sound administrative discretion benchmark and legal review system for key law enforcement decisions, management of law enforcement personnel qualifications, and law enforcement record system. It is important to investigate and punish replacing law with verbal orders, using power beyond legal constraint, and other illegal behaviors for private benefits. It is also imperative to strictly implement accountability system, finish legal cases within due time, and supervision and appraisal system, introduce third-party institutions to make assessment of administrative efficiency, and advocate working style featuring shouldering responsibilities, hard-working and pragmatic efficiency.

It is important to strengthen restriction and supervision of administrative power. Government officials should willingly accept supervision by People’s Congress and its standing committee, the democratic supervision by the CPPCC of the province. It is suggested to further improve the work report and communication system, and timely respond to opinions and advice. We should strengthen the restriction and supervision within the government, delegate power according to different issues, different positions and different levels and rotate positions regularly, strengthen supervisions, expand the audit scope in usage of financial capital, supervision of state-owned asset, government investment, government purchase, public resource transaction and public project construction. It is also important to make administrative affairs more open and transparent, to make better work in information disclosure of financial budgeting, public resource allocation, key construction project approval and implementation, to pay attention to response to the public opinion on the internet, and to widely carry out activities of “citizen visiting government” and “college student internship”. It is required to implement the responsibilities in building a clean government and improving party’s working style, to strictly follow rules against waste and corruption for party and government institutions, to regulate financial expenditure for administration reception, outbound visits and public activities, to increase efforts in fighting against corruptions and investigating and punishing illegal behaviors, and to win trust and support of the people.

Fellow Deputies, the police officers and army troops stationed in our province have made remarkable contributions to the development and reform of Shaanxi, especially during natural disasters and other emergent occasions. On behalf of the government and people of our province, I would like to extend sincere thanks to them! We would continue to support the army construction as we always do, to do a better job in reserve force building and militia work, to promote national defense education, to widely carry out double-support work, to resolve practical problems for veterans, demobilized soldiers and entitled groups, and to consolidate and develop the unity between the military and people.

Fellow Deputies, with hopes in our minds, we are confident about the future development. Let us follow the leadership of the Party Central Committee with Xi Jinping as the general secretary, hold the great banner of communism with Chinese characteristics. I believe that under the leadership of provincial leaders, we could build a rich, harmonious and beautiful Shaanxi through our hard work. All Rights Reserved
