Report on the Work of the Hunan Provincial People's Government 2011
I. In 2010 and during the "Eleventh Five-Year" period the province actively responded to all challenges; as a result, it has achieved a sound economic and social development, bringing substantial benefits to its people.

Under the correct leadership of the Central Committee and the State Council, the whole province thoroughly implements the scientific concept of development, and in accordance with the deployment of CPC Hunan Provincial Committee, vigorously carries out the "One Industrialization and Three Basics" Strategy (i.e. the new-type industrialization and basic facilities, basic industries and basic work) and accelerates the new-type industrialization, new urbanization, agricultural modernization, informationization and construction of the "Two-oriented" Society. As a result, the province has triumphantly coped with the impact of the international financial crisis, as well as of natural disasters. Pulling together in time of difficulty and forging ahead with pioneering and innovating spirits, the province successfully fulfilled the objectives and tasks of the "Eleventh Five-Year Plan".

(1) Economic strength increased substantially. In 2010, the province's GDP exceeded 1.5 trillion (projected) yuan, and in per capita terms it reached 23,100 yuan, which was 2.3 and 2.2 times of that of 2005, making the average annual growth rate of the last five years 14% and 13.3% respectively. The total fiscal revenue reached 186.29 billion yuan, 2.5 times of that 2005, with an average annual growth rate of 20% for the last five years. The investment in fixed assets came to 982.11 billion yuan, 3.8 times of that of 2005. Saving deposits and loans balances in both local and foreign currencies in all financial institutions stood at 1.66 trillion yuan and 1.15 trillion yuan respectively, with an increase of 1.00368 trillion yuan and 736.25 billion yuan respectively in the last five years.

The insurance industry also witnessed a robust development with a premium income of 43.29 billion yuan.

(2) Substantial progress was achieved in shift of growth pattern and in structure readjustment. The ratio between the primary, secondary and tertiary industries registered 13.8∶46.2∶40.The ratio of the secondary industry increased by 6.6 percentage points in the last five years. Both urban and rural areas enjoyed a steady development. In the last five years, a total of 19.78 billion yuan of subsidies for agricultural production has been issued. For 11 years in a row, a requisition-compensation balance has been achieved. The major project of Dongting Lake Rim Basic Farmland Construction kicked off. Grain output remained stable with 312 provincial leaders in industrialized operation of agriculture generating 190 billion yuan of sales income. The New Countryside Construction project "1000-Village Demonstration" pressed ahead. The coverage of centralized water supply in rural areas reached 35%, providing portable water to a rural population of 10.05 million in the last five years. The new type of industrialization was vigorously promoted. The program of readjusting and reviving key industries was implemented in-depth and the development of strategically important emergent industries was accelerated. The project of large aircraft landing gear and wheel system was located in Hunan. Changfeng together with Guangzhou Automobile and Mitsubishi launched an inter-regional strategic reorganization. Building materials, metallurgy and engineering machinery industries were three new members in the 100 billion yuan club. The industrial added value totaled over 600 billion yuan, 2.7 times of that of 2005, and its contribution rate to economic growth reached about 57%, in a breakdown, the added value of high-tech industry was 217 billion yuan and that of building industry was 103.8 billion yuan. The real estate industry maintained steady and rapid development while producer services enjoyed accelerated development with an added value of 280 billion yuan. The total revenue of tourism reached 142.58 billion yuan, equivalent to 9.5% of the provincial GDP. Non-public economy became even more vibrant with an added value of 850 billion yuan, accounting for 56.7% of the total GDP. The investment structure was improved: the ratio of investment in energy-intensive industries dropped 16.7 percentage points for the past five years. The stimulating effect of consumption on economic growth increased with total retail sales of consumer goods hitting 577.53 billion yuan. Independent innovation capacity was further improved, as demonstrated by solving 82 key industrial technologies and obtaining over 13,000patent licenses. Tianhe-1A super computer system was a telling example. The contribution rate of scientific and technological progress to economic growth reached as high as 51%.

(3) Development basis was comprehensively reinforced. Investment in infrastructure totaled 812.15 billion yuan during the "Eleventh Five-Year Plan" period, which was 3.4 times of that during the "Tenth Five-Year Plan". Transportation construction developed by leaps and bounds. With Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed railway crossing the province, Hunan entered the era of high-speed railway. Expressway construction achieved a historic breakthrough as demonstrated by the following figures. In the last five years the total investment in this field stood at 151.5 billion yuan, which was 4.1 times of that during the "Tenth Five-Year Plan". Ten expressways opened to traffic 10, adding a mileage of 983 km and making the total of 2386 km. With these expressways, a "Four-hour Economic Circle" was taking shape, connecting the provincial capital Changsha with 13 cities and prefectures. 99.87% of towns and townships and 80.1% of administrative villages were connected with cement/asphalt roads. Another eight railway projects were under construction. Civil Aviation Transportation grew by 19% in the last five years. The total throughput of Huanghua Airport reached 12.62 million person times. Energy security was strengthened continuously. Power generation installed capacity reached 29.12 million kilowatts, a net increase of 14 million kilowatts compared with five years ago. Water conservancy construction also boasted a rapid development. The comprehensive treatment plan for Dongting Lake was launched. By far 634 large and medium-sized reservoirs and small key reservoirs that are precarious have been reinforced. Guangzhou Auto Fiat, Valin electrical steel, BYD Auto, Foton and other major industrial projects have kicked off. Major projects pressed ahead smoothly, to name but a few, Yueyang 10 million-ton oil refining and petrochemical integration, and Xiang Steel heavy plate and technological innovation. Effective protection was rendered to construction land, and geological and mining exploration has achieved positive results.

(4) The development of the pilot area for the "Two-oriented (resource conserving and environmentally friendly)" society in the Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan (hereinafter CZT for short) city cluster gives a boost to coordinated development among regions. Development of the pilot area has basically completed the tasks of its first phase. As a result, the whole province is now Two-oriented-minded and both the development momentum and the radiating effect of the pilot area are unprecedented. The development of the following projects has picked up: Changsha metro, CZT inter-city railway lines, Changsha-based Xiang River hydraulic engineering complex and Xiang River Scenic Belt. The "Triple Play" pilot project was launched; the Changsha-based National Center for Supercomputing and Aerospace Science and Technology City were under construction; all five major demonstration areas started up. CZT city cluster has become one of the eight major national comprehensive high-tech industry bases. Xiangtan Hi-tech Zone and Ningxiang Economic Development Zone were upgraded to national parks. The proportion of the economic aggregate of CZT city cluster to the whole province rose from 40.6% in 2005 to 43%. Development among regions remained in a coordinated manner.

(5) Environmental protection efforts were intensified continuously. The energy-saving and emission-reduction-related targets set in the "Eleventh Five-Year Plan" have all been fulfilled by implementing 785 key energy-saving projects. As a result, decontamination rate of urban sewage and domestic garbage reached 72% and 50.66% respectively. The disaster prevention and mitigation system of geological hazards continued to improve, and mining geological environment recovery was strengthened. Positive progress has been made in ecological construction, with forest coverage rate hitting 57.01%, and forest reserves amounting to 402 million cubic meters. Langshan was successfully included in the World Heritage List. The development of circular economy has been accelerated with a number of national and provincial circular economy pilot projectsachieving initial results. A number of major pollution prevention and treatment projects were carried out including Comprehensive Treatment of Dongting Lake and Heavy Metals Treatment along the Xiang River.

(6) Reform and Opening up program was proceeding in depth. A new round of reform in provincial and municipal governmental institutions has been completed. So have the tasks of initial phase of reform in state-owned enterprises (SOEs) by provincial oversight. The net assets of these enterprises increased by 2.1 times, reaching110.4 billion yuan. 223 cooperative projects were arranged with 68 centrally-administered SOEs. Significant progress has been made in the medical and health system reform, with national essential drug system well in place. Huarong Xiangjiang Bank was established by incorporating four banks and one urban credit cooperatives. Hunan United Assets and Equity Exchange were founded. The reform in cultural system went on further and deeper. The added value of this industry accounted for more than 5% of GDP. The reform in financial system was deepened as well. For example, the financial reform of "counties directly supervised by the province" officially kicked off. Pricing reform of resource products achieved results. The main task of reform in the collective forest right system was completed. The vitality of an export-oriented economy was strengthened. Strategic investors like Citibank, Dell and Foxconn were introduced. "Asia-Europe Center for Water Resources Research and Exploration" was located in Changsha. A port system was gradual improved. The number of entry-exits at air ports reached 562,000 person times. The province's import and export volume reached 14.69 billion U.S. dollars, with an average annual growth rate of 19.6% in the last five years. Actually utilized foreign investment reached 5.18 billion U.S. dollars, with an average annual growth rate of 20.1% in the last five years. The actually utilized domestic investment grew as well. The pace of "Going Global" accelerated as evidenced by the total overseas direct investment standing at 2.65 billion USD. Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology Development, Sany Heavy Industry, CSR Times, Valin Iron & Steel etc. are illustrative examples of transnational operation. Major economic and trading promotion activities like Hunan Week of Shanghai Expo and Taiwan-Hunan Week were successfully arranged. The economic ties with the Pan Pearl River Delta, Yangtze River Delta, and Central China were strengthened. Assistance and disaster relief efforts rendered to Tibet, Xin Jiang Sichuan and etc. were actively carried out.

(7) The development of Livelihood and social undertakings were accelerated. Living standards were steadily improved with per capita income of urban and rural residents reaching 16,566 yuan and 5,622 yuan respectively, with an average annual growth rate of 8.4% and 8.8% in the last five years. Throughout 2010, direct livelihood-related expenditures at all levels amounted to 172.35 billion yuan, an increase of 124.47 billion yuan from 2005. Proactive employment policies produced significant results. Last year, 708,000 more urban jobs were created and the registered urban unemployment rate was within 4.3%. 13.208 million migrant rural labors found jobs in urban areas and this part of income exceeded 120 billion yuan. The social security system was perfected in a speedy manner. The total number of pilot counties under the new rural social pension system increased to 46. The coverage of pension, unemployment, work injury and maternity insurance continued to expand. The insurance coverage rates of both urban and rural areas maintained above 90% (a basic medical insurance system for urban workers and residents and a New Rural Cooperative Medical System for rural residents). The subsidies for both systems were increased to 120 yuan/ person/year. Relief efforts were rendered to professional fishermen of the Dongting Lake and assistance was given to fishermen along the "Four Rivers" to help them settle ashore. Per capita make-up payment for urban and rural minimum allowance systems reached 155 yuan and 55 yuan respectively. The yearly subsidy allowance for decentralized and centralized support for social relief recipients arrived at 1239 yuan and 2942 yuan per person. The overall price level was stable thanks to timely initiation of a joint mechanism targeting at rising prices. Since last November, ad hoc subsidies have been issued to urban and rural poor people and college students from poor families . During the past five years, affordable housing was offered to 362,000 more households; shanty towns involving 106,000 households in cities or state-owned industrial/mining areas were renovated; additional 102,000 dilapidated buildings in rural areas were restored; 878,000 rooms were built to house 259,000 households stricken by disasters. The backbone of vocational education covering both urban and rural areas has taken a basic shape and the quality of higher education has been raised further. Medical and health service systems have also been optimized constantly as evidenced by timely and effective response to H1N1, human infection with highly pathogenic avian influenza and foot and mouth disease, and by new achievements made at prevention and control of infectious diseases and endemic. Production safety fared well with the incidence of serious accidents dropping significantly. People's physical fitness program was carried out in depth. The coverage of postal services expanded to rural areas rapidly. The sixth census produced major results for its initial stage. Administrative services rendered to industries and businesses and the market oversight capacity have both improved. Quality-oriented rejuvenation strategy and standardization strategy was proceeding with strong momentum. Population and family planning work scored remarkable results. New progress has been made in the following fields: ethnic and religious groups, Taiwan, foreign and overseas Chinese affairs, trade promotion, radio, film, and television, publishing, statistics, inspection and quarantine, food and drug supervision, air defense, counseling system, history, local history, archives, supply and marketing, migration and trade unions, Communist Youth League, protection for women, children, people with disabilities, and the elderly, earthquake, weather, mapping, security service, Red Cross and so on.

(8) Democratic and legal construction has made a major breakthrough. Under the supervision of Provincial People's Congress (PPC) and its Standing Committee, the provincial government conscientiously enforced the resolutions and decisions made by PPC and its Standing Committee. The government also accepted democratic supervision from the Provincial People's Political Consultative Committee (PPPCC), administrative and supervision, as well as supervision from the masses and media. Throughout last year, 1279 proposals put forward by PPC members and 775 proposals by PPPCC members have been processed. The government strengthened its legal system and submitted six local laws and three regulations to PPC. Administration by law was further boosted with administrative procedures and supporting documents implemented in depth. The Government also continued to strengthen its performance evaluation, with administrative efficiency and public service keeping improving. In the last five years, the provincial government streamlined 1011 administrative approval projects, thus making the streamline ratio as high as 58%. 154 administrative fees have been abolished and 46,000 regulatory documents were abolished or repealed. Decision-making has become even more scientific, democratic and in accordance with the law. The Advisory Committee made up of academicians and experts played an important role. Administrative power was further regulated. Disclosure of government affairs was further intensified and e-government construction speeded up. Grass-roots democracy was strengthened as demonstrated by smooth operation of direct election of village/residential committees. Government affairs disclosure and the democratic management system of village/residential committees have been improved constantly. works continuously improved. The tasks of the "Fifth Five-Year Legal Knowledge Dissemination" were successfully completed. The construction of urban and rural communities proceeded in an all-round manner, and social organizations developed in an orderly way.

(9) The construction of spiritual civilization was further promoted. The study and practice of the scientific concept of development and relevant performance-enhancing activities were carried out extendedly. Moral education and spiritual civilization based on the socialist core value system were strengthened, with in-depth activities arranged for ideological and political education for college students and minors spiritual civilization construction for the masses. The efforts to build a clean government were intensified and a number of major illegal and undisciplined cases have been seriously dealt with. The innovation of social management proceeded in an all-round manner. The capacity for integrated emergency rescue and emergency response was enhanced. Petition work and the comprehensive management of social security have been strengthened by cracking down on all kinds of crime in accordance with the law. therefore social harmony and stability was maintained.

Defense mobilization and reserve force building developed in an innovated manner. National defense mobilization was further consolidated and the overall capacity of reserve forces and militia for accomplishing diverse military tasks was improved. National defense education continued to be strengthened, and the integration of the military and civilians developed steadily, with harmonious relations between the military and the government and between the military and civilians. Hunan-based People's Liberation Army, armed police and militia actively supported local economic and social development, and contributed enormously to disaster relief, poor reduction and social stability.

Fellow deputies, the province has made impressive achievements and accumulated valuable experience in the last five years. The experiences include the following: always adhering to the scientific development, and creatively implementing the central policies while taking local characteristics into consideration; constantly improving the ability to turn crises into opportunities, striking a balance between economic growth, people's livelihood and stability and between speed, quality and effectiveness; always adhering to reform and opening up by enhancing the momentum and vitality of development and by building institutional mechanisms that promote scientific development; always adhering to a people-oriented approach with people's well-being as the fundamental purpose; always adhering to administration according to law, striving to create an open, fair, equitable and predictable environment for development; always relying on the solidarity of the whole province to form the synergy so as to pull together to overcome all difficulties.

Fellow deputies, the great economic and social achievements of the province are attributed to in the existing and previous party committee and provincial government and to the great efforts of all peoples in this province. Hereby on behalf of the Provincial People's Government, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the workers, peasants, cadres and intellectuals, to the members of democratic parties, federation of industry and commerce, personages without party affiliation, people's organizations and people from all walks of life, to Hunan-based PLA, the armed police officers and politics and law police officers, to Hunan-based units of the Central People's Government, to all compatriots of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the Macau Special Administrative Region and Taiwan and all the overseas Chinese and international friends.

Facing the new situation and new requirements, we feel the heavy responsibility, and are fully aware of existing problems. First, development falls short of the expectations of the people. Second, the extensive development pattern increasingly puts a bottleneck to energy and resources. The province is thus facing enormous pressure to achieve accelerating development while transforming development pattern. Third, the issues related to agriculture, farmers and rural areas are prominent; the driving forces of cities and industries is not strong enough, thus making coordinated development difficult. Fourth, the reform and opening program still has a uphill journey due to weak institutional mechanisms and small open economy. Fifth, guaranteeing and improving people's livelihood still pose severe challenges: people still find difficulties in education, employment, medical care, housing, pension and so on. Sixth, the transformation of government functions should be accelerated, and the work style of cadres should be improved. People and businesses show great concerns in matters of the development environment. The situation of safe production and maintenance of stability is still grim. We must take strong and effective measures to solve these problems.

II. The province should adhere to the approach of new-type industrialization, new urbanization, agricultural modernization, informationization and construction of the "Two-oriented" Society so as to fulfill all tasks set for this year and the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan".

In the next 5 years and more years to come, the province still embraces a period of strategically important opportunities. Looking at the world, peace, development and cooperation is still the trend of the times; the new technological revolution is in full swing; economic globalization entered a new phase of readjusting and deepening; the global restructuring and mobility of production factors are accelerating. We should remain cool-headed when it comes to trade protectionism, climate change, as well as global challenges like energy, resources and environment. We should accurately understand our position in the global division of labor and strive for greater market share by creatively participating in international economic cooperation and competition. China's economic strength has been increasing substantially, and accumulating successful stories of sound and rapid development as to make the people richer and the nation stronger. We should seize the opportunities brought out by the national strategy of promoting the rise-up of the central region so as to stand out in a new round of domestic competition. As to Hunan, the strategy of "One Industrialization and Three Basics" has scored great success, as demonstrated by accomplishing a number of major issues, practical matters and difficult problems. The economic strength is increasing rapidly; the upgrading of industrial structure is accelerating; the leeway to deal with complex situations and promote economic transition is also expanding by large margin; the strategic strength of competition in the future is accumulating. At the critical juncture of deepening reform and opening up, accelerating the transformation of economic development pattern, and building a well-off society in an all-round way, we must cherish opportunities, seize opportunities, and make good use of opportunities. We should also identify challenges, stand up to challenges, and overcome challenges. With a strong sense of dedication and responsibility we should energetically make fresh progress in the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan" Period.

Based on the goal of promoting sound and fast development, we prepared the "Outline of Twelfth Five-Year Plan" (draft)" by thoroughly implementing the spirit of the party's Fifth Plenary Session of the Seventeenth Central Committee of the CPC and the "Proposals for Twelfth Five-Year Plan" by Central Committee and Hunan Provincial Committee and by giving due consideration to the development needs of our province, pooling public opinion and wisdom and gathering consensus. Taking the theme on scientific development, taking the main line as accelerating the transformation of economic development pattern, closely revolving on the topics of scientific development, and enriching the people and strengthening the province, the "Outline" paints a blueprint for the Twelfth Five-Year Plan. The general requirements for this period are as follows: holding high the banner of scientific development, adhering to the road of new-type industrialization, new urbanization, agricultural modernization, informationization and construction of the "Two-oriented" Society, building a province that is innovative, digital-based, green and ruled by law so as to lay a decisive foundation of a well-off society. The main targets for the Twelfth Five-Year include: average annual GDP growth above 10%, which means reaching 2.5 trillion yuan in 2015; average annual revenue growth over 10%; average annual growth of fixed asset investment exceeding 20%; accomplishing the tasks assigned by the State in terms of energy conservation and emission reduction; average annual growth in per capita income of urban and rural residents; the registered urban unemployment rate below 5%; population natural growth rate less than 7 ‰. To fulfill these tasks, the following five types of development should be adhered.

First, optimized development. Development is the key to solving all problems of our province. We will strive for more comprehensive, coordinated and inclusive development by promoting the dynamic balance of demand and supply, coordinating the primary industry, the secondary industry and the tertiary industry, and encouraging all economic sectors to coexist in a win-win mode as they complement with each other.

Second, innovated development. The new-type industrialization represents the primary driving force of developing in scientific way, enriching the people and strengthening the province. It is also the top priority of all tasks, among which new urbanization, agricultural modernization, informationization and construction of the "Two-oriented" Society. We should press ahead with institutional, management and technological innovation, and give full play to science and technology as the first productivity and talented people as the primary resource to speed up our development transition.

Third, green development. We should be low-carbon and circular development-minded, and create energy conserving and environment-friendly industry structure, lifestyle and consumption mode, so as to make sure that the people have access to clean water, fresh air and safe food.

Fourth, people-oriented development. We will improve long-term mechanisms to provide people with a better life. For instance, we will continue to improve the security system covering both urban and rural areas, and we will increase their income in diversified ways and channals so that they can live a happier life.

Fifth, harmonious development. We aim for harmonious coexistence between people, between man and society and between man and nature by expediting the construction of a harmonious society, strengthening democracy and rule of law, safeguarding equity and justice and improving long-term mechanisms for allocating interests and solving disputes.

For the fulfillment of the objectives and tasks set in the "Twelfth Five-Year-Plan", we must do a good job in 2011 to make a sound start. Our targets this year are: 10% or more increase in GDP, 12% rise in fiscal revenue, 20% growth for investment in fixed assets or more, accomplishment of the national emission reduction target, about 4% for CPI hikes, 10% growth of per capita income for both urban and rural areas, and less than 4.5% of registered urban unemployment rate.

We will spare no efforts to do a good job in these ten areas: (1) Pushing forward the new-type industrialization, and establishing Hunan Province as innovation-oriented Traditional industries should be upgraded. We should make active efforts to consolidate and expand market shares of traditional industries which are in conformity with the national energy-saving and emission-reduction requirements and which are marketable, sizable and profitable, and can bring about substantial benefits to the people. We need to apply hi- and new technologies to upgrade those industries to achieve intelligent, integrated and internet-based production. Moreover, we need to expand equipment manufacturing to include such value-adding procedures as R&D, design, brand and service, and adopt more advanced technologies to make raw material industries more intensive, cleaner and circular, including iron and steel, nonferrous metals, petrochemicals, and building materials. And we should also strive for deeper processing and greater added value for industries like food processing, garments and textile, and special light industries to realize a gradual shift from quantity expansion to quality enhancement, and from primary products to processed products.

Strategic new industries should be cultivated. When it comes to development, priorities should be given to areas with a sound foundation, comparative advantages, and great potential to develop well, preferably within these seven industries: equipment manufacturing, new materials, cultural and creative industry, biology, new energy, IT, and energy conservation and environment protection. Vigorous efforts should be made for the five basic tasks: new industry clusters development, incubation of competitive enterprises, R&D of core technologies, creation of brands, human resource development, and on developing three supporting platforms including those for technological innovation, investment and financing services, and common technical services. We should formulate further policies to support crucial technologies and key products development, such as modern construction machinery, rail transportation equipment, composite structures, new energy vehicles, battery and related materials, smart grid, bio-breeding, foster competitive companies which are market oriented, equipped with edge-cutting technologies, innovation minded and flexible, and push forward a number of key projects which serve both military and civil purposes. These measures will put us on a fast track towards development led by technology and driven by innovation. Efforts should be made to develop industrial clusters. We should continue to press ahead with the "Four 100-Billion-Yuan Output Projects", namely, developing industries with over 100 billion yuan assets, such as machinery and nonferrous metals industry, companies with over 100 billion yuan assets including Zoomlion, Sany Heavy Industry, Valin Iron & Steel, and Hunan Nonferrous Metals Holding Group and industrial clusters with over 100 billion yuan assets including construction engineering, auto and spare parts and petro chemicals with a view to establishing industrial bases up to national or even international advanced standards. With the principles of intensive use of land, environment protection, and concentrated location, industries are encouraged to agglomerate in industrial parks, and the phenomenon "an industrial park in each town, a factory in each village" should be avoided. We will pace up to build an industrial park network focused on provincial parks and supported by those at city or prefecture levels, with an emphasis on national parks including Changsha, Zhuzhou, Xiangtan Hi-tech Park and Yueyang, Changde, Ningxiang Economic Development Park, and the Chenzhou Export Processing Park.

Strengthen the capacity of independent innovation. Efforts should be accelerated to create an independent innovation system where enterprises as the main parties responsible are market oriented, supported by major innovation platforms and by an integration of production, teaching, research and application. We will step up integration of scientific and technological resources by combining key industrial parks, institutions of higher education and scientific research, and enterprises. We will speed up the establishment of laboratories of national, provincial or ministerial level, corporation R&D centers, engineering research centers, and postdoctoral work stations, and the founding of a strategic association for industrial technological innovation comprising a number of research results application bases and incubators for technology-based enterprises. We will concentrate our efforts on key technological projects, and choose from them some urgently needed, well grounded ones with great boost to other projects for the early development of high end products with independent IPR. We will improve the supporting investment and financing system by increasing government funding on applied research, encouraging large enterprises to spend more on R&D, facilitating integration of capital and innovation factors, and developing Technology factor markets, and intermediaries. We will also deepen the reform on science and technological system, including measures to encourage innovation and protect research results, improve assessment and awarding rules, and encourage companies and researchers to participate in the distribution based on their non-monetary capital like technologies, patents and trademarks. We will implement the intellectual property strategy with the goal of greater IPR creativeness, application and management. We will give full play to the role of companies and entrepreneurs in the new-type industrialization. We aim for common and coordinated development of large companies and small and medium-sized ones (SMEs) by going on with the "Little Giant" Plan, the Innovation Program and talents-nurturing project. We will vigorously foster elite entrepreneurs, advocate brevity, experiment and entrepreneurship and create a favorable environment for business people.

(2) Promoting modern agriculture and accelerating the construction of new countryside We will step up modern agricultural development. We will further stabilize grain production, implement earnestly national plans on newly added food production capacity, promote the "Planting Three to Yield Four" Super Hybrid Rice High-yielding Project to spread super rice and high-quality rice, resolutely curb farm land abandonment, and expand double cropping acreage for the mass production of grain so that we will continue to contribute to national food security. We will strictly implement national land protection policies, establish permanent farmland, improve land quality, and press ahead with comprehensive improvement of rural land, including projects to improve the Dongting Lake Rim basic farmland and the Cengtianhe land reserve development. We need to pay close attention to agricultural infrastructure construction with the focus on water conservancy, including the comprehensive treatment of the Dongting Lake, the four main rivers of Hunan Province (i.e., the Xiangjiang River, the Zijiang River, the Yuanjiang River and the Lishui River) and other smaller rivers, improvement of facilities in large and medium irrigation areas, reinforcement of dilapidated small reservoirs, dredging and expansion of backbone ponds, and building of small and micro water conservancy facilities. We shall step up efforts to build a modern agricultural system with an advantageous produce chain covering "double-low" rapeseed, high-quality cotton, ramie, oil-tea camellia, tea, edible fungus, flowers, fruit, livestock, bamboo, fresh agricultural products. We shall protect the supply of major agricultural produce such as vegetables and pigs by expanding the scale of vegetable bases and promoting large-scale pig farming. We have to work hard to make agriculture large scale in operation, standardized in operation and brand oriented in development, build an industrial chain which allows all parties concerned get interconnected and share both benefits and risks, give priority to a number of enterprises which boast solid foundations and give strong impetus to other agricultural products processing, implement projects to help develop deep grain processing and logistics which boast over 100 billion yuan assets, and do a good job in building agricultural products processing parks. We should improve the social service system for agriculture: actively carry out public services including agricultural products circulation, agricultural facilities-related services, agricultural technology innovation and spreading, animal and plant disease prevention and control, quality inspection and certification of agricultural products and agricultural information publication, and boost the R&D of quality seeds and seedlings. We will strive for equipment and machinery based agriculture by improving agriculture facilities; do a good job in urban construction of demonstration counties of modern agriculture; make peasants more organized by supporting all kinds of farmer cooperative organizations.

We will accelerate the construction of the new countryside and coordinate urban and rural development. Fiscal spending should give priority to agriculture, rural areas and farmers to the extent that the total spending on rural areas and agriculture grows faster and takes a larger share of total government spending compared with last year. We will accelerate the building of the new countryside by formulating a scientific and rational planning of towns and villages to manage the "field, water, roads, woods and villages" comprehensively, and by strengthening the construction, rectification, maintenance and management of rural roads, safe drinking water, power grids, communications, information, biogas and other infrastructure and renovating the rural dilapidated houses. We will make focused efforts to improve rural living environment, control point source pollution in rural areas, promote the comprehensive improvement of rural environment, and implement rural sanitation projects to support qualified areas to construct garbage and sewage treatment facilities. We should coordinate urban and rural development in an differentiated manner with a few foci: promoting integration of urban and rural planning, industries, infrastructure, employment, environmental protection and public services; boosting the combination of urban capital and technology with rural resources; carrying out extensively "Cooperation Between 10,000 Enterprises and Villages" for the integrated and complementary development of urban and rural areas. We will enhance the quality of education for farmers, among which the rural compulsory education, to a more balanced level, and accelerate the popularization of free secondary vocational education in rural areas. We will also strengthen the construction of the three-tier rural health care network, and improve the rural pension, subsistence allowances, "five guarantees" (providing food, clothing, medical care, housing and burial expenses for childless and infirm rural residents) and other relief and assistance systems.

We will do more to increase farmers' income. We should earnestly protect the pricing system of agricultural products and encourage farmers to optimize the planting and breeding structure and develop cottage industries, processing industries, and featured high-efficiency agriculture, so that they can earn more operational income. More efforts should be made to train new farmers, and encourage them to work for the secondary and tertiary industries in towns and cities and migrant workers to return home to start business, so that their wage income will increase.
