Li Jianghua, the Deputy Secretary-General of Changsha Municipal People’s Government
On behalf of the Changsha Municipal People’s Government, Deputy Secretary-General Li Jianghua put forward requirements for the work of the Changsha Working Group: First, the understanding must be improved and the thinking must be unified. The convening of GEDS in Changsha will effectively promote Changsha to implement General Secretary Jinping’s requirements of “Three Highs and Four New”, so as to achieve high-quality development and improve competitiveness, thereby enhancing the city’s popularity and international influence. Comrades participating in the Changsha Working Group must attach importance to it in thought, do well in action, and be in the right way in method; Second, division of responsibilities must be practiced to create synergy. It is necessary to coordinate the relations between our country and foreign countries, between the province and other provinces, between the city and other cities, as well as between the Organizing Committee and relevant departments, so as to jointly promote the implementation of the work; Third, work ideas must be clear to gain the initiative. The preparatory work is full of difficulties, so the ideas need to be clarified and the methods need to be found right, so as to get twice the result with half the effort.
Ma Weiya, the special consultant for Boao Forum for Asia
In the speech, Comrade Ma Weiya fully affirmed the great and fruitful work done by the various groups of the Organizing Committee and the Changsha Working Group since the “May 28” meeting under the leadership of the Secretariat, the Hunan Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government, and the Changsha Municipal Party Committee and Municipal Government. The work got off to a good start on the whole with a solid foundation. He stressed that this meeting is not only a welcome meeting and a docking meeting, but also a mobilization pledge meeting and a work deployment meeting, which means that the co-working of all parties of the GEDS Organizing Committee has officially begun.
Comrade Ma Weiya made the following requirements: First, the ideological understanding must be further improved. The special importance of GEDS needs to be fully recognized. The organizer has a long reputation in the world, the discussion topics have attracted worldwide attention, the guests invited are of international importance, and the goals achieved are grand and far-reaching. We should seize the opportunity of this conference, make an Asian voice, gather consensus on global cooperation, build a new brand for BFA, and boost the economic and social development of Changsha and even Hunan; Second, the sense of urgency and honor must be further strengthened. GEDS is large in scale, high in standard and difficult in preparation. So far, there are only 112 days to prepare, so all staff must integrate the sense of honor for participating in international events into the preparation of GEDS without any mistakes; Third, teamwork must be further strengthened. Sincere cooperation and solidarity are the basis for the success of GEDS. Co-working represents a mutually beneficial relationship, indicating shared prosperity and loss; Fourth, work efficiency must be further improved. For each work, the plan must be advanced, the scheme must be perfected, the working mechanism must be established and improved, and the work norms must be strengthened. Every work must be done well based on problem orientation and professionalism.
