Fellow Deputies,

On behalf of Jiangsu Provincial People’s Government, I now present to you the report on the work of the government for your deliberation and approval and for comments and suggestions from the members of the Provincial Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).

Last year, under the leadership of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) with Comrade Xi Jinping as General Secretary, we earnestly implemented the spirit of the 18th CPC National Congress, the 3rd and 4th plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee and important addresses by General Secretary Xi Jinping and put in place the decisions and arrangements made by the CPC Central Committee and the State Council and the requirements of the Jiangsu Provincial CPC Committee on the work. We adhered to the general work guideline of making progress while maintaining stability and advancing reform and innovation. We concentrated efforts on Three Key Tasks, Eight Projects and Ten Measures and coordinated all the work on reform, development and stability. We attained the main goals set by the 2nd session of the 12th Provincial People's Congress. The provincial GDP hit RMB 6.51 trillion. The economic aggregate exceeded USD one trillion, up 8.7% over the previous year. The per capita GDP exceeded RMB 80,000. The public fiscal budgetary revenue registered RMB 723.314 billion, among which over 83% was from taxation. The social input into research and development stood at RMB 163 billion, accounting for 2.5% of the provincial GDP.

The rise in the consumer price index (CPI) was kept at 2.2%. Ten Practical Deeds related to people’s well-being were completed. The whole province saw steady economic growth, harmonious social development and new achievements in all work. 

1. We embraced a good start by making active efforts to deepen reform in an all-around way. In line with the unified arrangements of the CPC Central Committee and the requirements of the CPC Provincial Committee on the work, we formulated opinions on eight issues, namely transforming government functions, improving modern market system, reforming state-owned enterprises and assets, reforming finance and taxation system, innovating financial system and building open economic system and pushed forward the reform in 273 key areas and links. With Five Lists, One Platform, and Seven Relevant Reforms as the framework, we made great headway in streamlining administration, delegating more power to lower-level governments and transforming government functions. We abolished and delegated to lower-level governments 506 items previously subject to the review and approval of the provincial government and officially released the list of items requiring the review and approval of the provincial government, streamlining 40% of administration. The items not requiring the administrative review and approval were fully abolished. We made progress in carrying out the pilot reform of administrative system in developed townships, the reform of public institutions based on the classification of their functions and the reform of government performance management. The pilot practice of replacing business tax with VAT was conducted in 333,000 enterprises, reducing RMB 35.86 billion of tax accumulatively. We carried forward the commercial system reform and the pilot Three-in-One Certificate program; the number of newly registered businesses and registered capital volume grew by 14% and 49.7% respectively.

3. We made important progress in economic transformation and industrial upgrading by giving priority to the guiding role of innovation. Guided by the principle of “high value added, service oriented, competitiveness sharpened and efficiency optimized”, we vigorously promoted economic structural optimization and upgrading. We implemented the innovation-driven strategy and pressed ahead with the development of innovation-driven province.

5. We promoted ecological progress by addressing both problems and root causes. We intensified our efforts to implement the Clear River and Blue Sky Project. The No.1 document of the provincial government released the action plan on the prevention and treatment of air pollution. We energetically promoted the adjustment of industrial and energy structure, carried out comprehensive treatment of industrial waste gas,motor vehicle’s exhaust and dust and established the joint prevention and control mechanism in air pollution control areas.

Fellow Deputies, two major events were held in Jiangsu last year. One is the complete success of Nanjing Youth Olympic Games. Attributable to the strong leadership of CPC Central Committee and great support from relative national departments and all sides, especially the hard efforts made by Nanjing people, all work was done to fulfill the General Secretary Xi Jinping’s requirement of holding a magnificent Youth Olympic Games with Chinese characteristics. The Games concluded with unanimous praise from both home and abroad. Second is the smooth national memorial activity. Last December 13th is the first National Memorial Day to the Nanjing massacre victims. Taking “Do not forget national humiliation, rejuvenate the Chinese nation” as a theme, we spared no efforts in making good preparation in security, environmental protection and on-site organization to provide a powerful guarantee to the smooth launching of national memorial activity and inspired people’s patriotism, enhancing their confidence and determination to remember the history, cherish peace and create the future.  

Last year, we strengthened self-improvement of the government, conscientiously implemented the Eight-Point decision of CPC Central Committee and Ten-Point decision of CPC Jiangsu Provincial Committee, consolidated the results of the Mass Line Education Practice Activities, strengthened the anti-corruption campaign and the construction of party style and built clean and honest administration. We depended on democracy and scientific decision-making and effectively improved our work style, accelerated the transformation of government functions. The administrative efficiency ranked second in the country for two years in a row and new progress was achieved in the construction of service-oriented government.

Fellow Deputies, by recalling last year’s struggle, we deeply feel that, it’s not easy to score the achievements against the mounting difficulties and challenges in the past year, which is the result of the strong leadership and wise decisions of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council and the concerted efforts and hard work by people across the province. On behalf of Jiangsu Provincial People’s Government, I would like to pay tribute and heartfelt gratitude to all people in Jiangsu. My gratitude also goes to the deputies of Jiangsu Provincial People’s Congress, members of CPPCC Jiangsu Provincial Committee, democratic parties, federations of commerce and industry, mass organizations, people from all walks of life, the People’s Liberation Army stationed in Jiangsu, the armed police forces and public security police as well as to our compatriots in the Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions and Taiwan, overseas Chinese as well as foreign friends.  

Meanwhile, we are keenly aware that despite the steady economic growth, there are still difficulties and problems. Reform needs to be strengthened and shall be more effective and the market as the main body needs to play a more active role. Irrational industrial structure and deep-rooted problems cannot be ignored and the growth power of economy has not been transformed. The excess capacity of some industries and insufficient market demand coexist and some enterprises have operation difficulties. There’s intensifying resource shortage and environmental deterioration and big gap is maintained between the ecological construction and people’s expectation. Vulnerable areas still exist in tasks concerning people’s livelihood, imbalance can be found in the allocation of public service resources including education, health and old-age care and new problems need to be addressed in social administration. The transformation of government functions is incomplete and law-based administration needs to be improved. Consolidated measures need to be taken to establish a long-term mechanism for changing government work style and great efforts are required in fighting against corruption and advocating clean and honest governance. We will bear in mind our responsibilities and missions and take effective and feasible measures to tackle these problems. 

In last middle December, General Secretary Xi Jinping made new requirements for Jiangsu during his inspection in the province. He expected Jiangsu to target at the glorious mission of realizing “Two Leads”, promote the development in four aspects like building a comparatively prosperous society, deepening reform, rule of law and running the Party strictly, reach new level in economic development, modern agricultural development, cultural construction, construction of people’s livelihood and party building to build a New Jiangsu with strong economy, affluent people, beautiful environment and high level of civilization.
