The problems were discussed at the meeting that needed to be solved by the municipality to achieve better results on the basis of last year. Meng Xiangwei, secretary of the municipal Party committee, attended the meeting and gave a speech. He stressed that the work of the tourist season in this year should fully implement the spirit of the Party’s 19th Congress, adhere to the Xi Jinping’s thought of the socialism with Chinese characteristics for the new era, put the idea of the people centered development into practice, and adhere to the concept of "year-round, day-to-day, normalization and grid", ramming the base of the grass roots and promoting the work of the whole city to stride up to a new stage.
Members of the four leading bodies of the city, leaders in charge from the counties and districts, the Development Zone, the Beidaihe New District and the relevant municipal departments attended the meeting. The meeting was presided over by Zhang Ruishu, deputy secretary of the municipal Party committee and mayor.
The comrades attending the meeting studied how to do well in the tourist season of this year, put forward and analyzed the main problems that we are facing. For these problems, they must be solved on the spot if possible. If they could not be solved immediately, a temporary method should be offered, and the relevant departments in charge should provide a timetable and roadmap for a thorough solution of those problems. Tian Jinchang, deputy secretary of the municipal Party committee and Yan Wuyi, member of the standing committee of the municipal Party committee, secretary of the politics and law committee, put forward specific requests and arrangements for work of tourist season. The rest of the city leaders at the meeting made a brief statement concerning their respective responsibilities.
Meng pointed out that in this year's tourist season we are facing new situations, new problems and new demands. This is the first tourist season after the 19th Party Congress and also the first tourist season after we have been laurelled the National Civilized City. This is our first tourist season after the successful hosting of the amazing World Conference on Tourism for Development. This is another tourist season after the outstanding achievement made in our tourist season last year, and after the economic and social work has reached another milestone of Qinhuangdao's development history. All departments at all levels of the city should enhance their understanding and ideas, seek detailed management and concrete implementations, make persistent efforts and reach another higher peak, put the people centered development idea into practice, strive to be more precise, finer and better in all our jobs, and take a big step forward in the course of building a first-class tourist city in the world, to provide more quality services to tourists and satisfy the people's yearning for a better life continuously.
Meng stressed that to do a good job of this year's tourist season, we should carry out the spirit of 19th Party Congress in an all-round way and adhere to the guideline of Xi Jinping’s thought of socialism with Chinese characteristics for the new era, and make a new leap forward on a new historical starting point. First, we should consolidate the grass-roots foundation by focusing on the concept of "year-round, day-to-day, normalization and grid". It is necessary to have a sense of inventory management, to find out the experience and regularity from the achievements obtained, to explore the establishment of a perfect, scientific and effective system mechanism, to solidify the results in order to keep the effect, to eliminate the idea of coping an emergency, the season and the inspection, and to keep an eye on the long-run, long-effect, and long-term, and stick to idea that the efforts should be made in the ordinary and the daily life. Continuous efforts should be made in “depth, concrete, strictness, carefulness, and length”, and the working method of "Five Do’s, Four Start’s and Four More’s" be carried out, and the activities of "Walk Around Qinhuangdao" be furthered and the basic work of the grass-roots level be done well. Secondy, efforts for precision,refinement and excellence should be focused on "scientific, innovative, branding" ideas. In the work of the tourist season, we should insist on reducing cost by science and technology, enhancing service by innovation, making benefit out of the brand, and paying more attention to the use of economic thinking, the marketing, the scientific method and the technical means to solve the new problems. The brand of Qinhuangdao should be established in the landscape greening, emergency handling, ecological construction, city management and tourism image and refined customs, and it should be widely spread through the tourists to enhance further the reputation of the city. Third, we should take the tourist season as a "test" to examine our jobs and strive to promote Qinhuangdao to a new stage. We should extend the responsibility, execution, concentration, precision and effective mechanism of the work of the tourist season to all kinds of work, and mobilize cadres of the whole city, and ensure them to be the first driving force to promote the economic and social development of the whole city and make the living of the people of Qinhuangdao happier and better.
Meng finally said that for more than two years we have made remarkable achievements in all our work. One of the most important reasons is that we have improved our work style and the leading cadres would perform themselves. The system of river chief, the road chief, the section chief and the bay chief, and the "Walk Around Qinhuangdao" are all, in essence, the responsibility system, meaning the responsibilities of the cadres are clearly defined. With the carders taking the lead, the masses are performing well. "Following me" is the carders’ call t before work, which leads to the vivid sight that the 3 million cadres and the masses are making concerted efforts for the happiness of tomorrow has formed. The cadres of the city should always insist on detecting and solving problems on the front line, as the process of implementing the Party’s Central Committee’s decision and deployment, as the process of serving the masses, understanding the people's feelings and increasing the capacity, as a process of purifying the mind and elevating the Party character. Everyone should be the trouble terminator and the development booster. (Liu Jun)
