At this beautiful moment of ushering in the New Year, we are delighted to extend New Year greetings to people of all ethnic groups, officers and men of the PLA forces stationed in Hunan, the armed police as well as those who will be working during the New Year holidays. We also express our sincere thanks to domestic and overseas friends concerning and supporting the province's social and economic development.
The year of 2012 has been a very unusual and uncommon one for Hunan people. Facing difficult situation and challenges and paving way for success of the 18th CPC National Congress, Hunan people persistently implemented the Scientific Outlook on Development and policies and decisions made by the CPC Central Committee,
vigorously promoted new-type industrialization, new-type urbanization, agricultural modernization and informatization, and construction of the "Two-Oriented" Society (resource-saving and environment-friendly society) under the firm leadership of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council. Hunan has witnessed remarkable achievements in social and economic development. The province maintained a sound and relatively fast development momentum with increased economic aggregate and development benefits, optimized economic structure, deepened reform and opening-up, and improved people’s livelihood and harmonious society. Hunan Province is immersed in a vigorous and flourishing atmosphere.
2013 is a year of profound significance in implementing development goals outlined in the report of the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and laying a solid foundation for building a moderately prosperous society in all respects. Driven by new responsibilities and missions this year, the province will further implement the decisions made by the 18th CPC National Congress and the Central Economic Work Conference. Under the guidance of the Deng Xiaoping Theory, the Three Represents and the Scientific Outlook on Development, we will focus on scientific development and transformation of economic development pattern to improve the quality and efficiency of economic growth. We will further push forward the construction of new-type industrialization, new-type urbanization, agricultural modernization and informatization, and "Two-Oriented" Society to achieve steady and sound economic development.
We will further deepen the reform and opening up, strengthen innovation, and incessantly propel the impetus and vigor for development. We will enhance social development, vigorously push forward social undertakings, guarantee and improve people’s livelihood and maintain social harmony and stability, so as to create and share a beautiful life with all people in Hunan Province. We will also perfect our work style by keeping close links with the general public, being pragmatic and working practically. And we will always be enthusiastic in our work and take a positive attitude to do a better job.
The new year is brimming with hope as well as fresh challenges. Let’s rally closely round the CPC Central Committee with Xi Jinping as General Secretary, free up the mind, forge ahead with determination, overcome all difficulties and do a solid job. Through all these, we will constantly break new ground in the scientific development to enrich the people and strengthen the province, and spare no effort to achieve a moderately prosperous society.
