Currently, world economic situation is complicated and changeable, and world economy is still lingering between slow recovery and deepened recession. The imbalanced, inharmonic and unsustainable conflicts in economic development of China remain outstanding, and the economic downturn trend is obvious.

We shall clearly understand the situations, face the difficulties, grasp the opportunities, firmly grasp the general tone of seeking progress amid stability, closely focus on the main themes and main lines, insist on taking and implementing various measures in a comprehensive manner, properly deal with the relations between speed, structure and commodity price, and try to keep stable and rapid economic growth.

These targets not only reflect the requirements of surpass-pursuing and pressure self-imposing, but also the demands to ensure fulfillment of “three elevations” and development into a medium-developed province, enlarge employment, increase income of residents and improve people’s life. Under the situation where all places in the country compete with and catch up with each other, not negligence is permitted. We shall integrate the forces to seek for development, focus on implementation and realize leap-forward development.

Under the background of economic downturn, such growth speed includes qualitative requirements: “turning around and surpassing others” shall pay equal attention to direction, balance and speed. We shall insist on seeking for progress amid stability and seeking for speed amid better development, properly deal with the relationships of increment and stock, focus on the cultivation and support of development of real economy in the economic work, and pay more attention to people’s life, creation of harmony and elevation of happiness index of the public.
