2020 Sichuan Economic and Social Development Expert Forum with the theme of "Contributing Intelligence and Advice to Sichuan's High-quality Development" was held in Chengdu on November 19. Yin Li, Deputy Secretary of the CPC Sichuan Provincial Committee and Governor of Sichuan Province, attended the forum and delivered a speech.
On behalf of the provincial government, Yin Li welcomed the guests attending the forum. He said that Sichuan is a major province in resource, science and education, and economy in western China. During the "13th Five-Year Plan" period, Sichuan has adhered to Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, unswervingly implemented the new development concept, and took the promotion of high-quality development as the theme, strove to win the battle against poverty, built a modern industrial system, and optimized the market mechanism, continued to promote regional coordinated development, expanded open-up and cooperation, and ensured the improvement of people’s livelihood. In this way, Sichuan will be synchronized with the whole country to build a well-off society in an all-round way. Since the beginning of this year, in the face of the sudden Covid-19 pandemic, under the strong leadership of the Central Committee of the CPC with General Secretary Xi Jinping as the core, Sichuan has coordinated the epidemic prevention and control and economic and social development, actively explored and implemented zoning and differentiated prevention and control strategies, and vigorously promoted work resumption. New achievements have been made in various fields across the province.
Yin Li said that at present, the development of Sichuan has been at a new starting point. Sichuan thoroughly implements the spirit of the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Party and the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important speeches, and scientifically plans the development blueprint of Sichuan’s 14th Five-Year Plan and Long-Range Objectives Through the Year 2035. Sichuan will actively integrate into a "dual circulation" development pattern in which domestic economic cycle plays a leading role while international economic cycle remains its extension and supplement. In the process of striving to promote high-quality development, Sichuan urgently needs the strong support of high-end intelligence and talents more than ever. He hoped that all experts will give full play to their intellectual advantages and actively make suggestions and contribute wisdom to Sichuan's high-quality development.
Experts delivered wonderful speeches at the forum, for example, Yang Weimin, deputy director of the Economic Committee of CPPCC, focused on how to build Sichuan into an important economic center with national influence; Lv Zheng, member of the academic committee of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, focused on how Sichuan actively integrates into the "dual circulation" development pattern; Li Houqiang, secretary of Committee of Sichuan Academy of Social Sciences of the CPC, focuses on how to build Sichuan into a high-quality livable place.
