Fellow Deputies,

On behalf of the Hunan Provincial People's Government, I now present to you my report on the work of the government for your deliberation and approval. I also invite the members of the Hunan Provincial Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and other representatives present to submit comments and suggestions.

Report on the Work of the Hunan Provincial People's Government 2012

I. Hunan embarked with a solid start to the 12th Five-Year Plan with boosted morale and concerted efforts in 2011.

In 2011, under the strong leadership of the Central Committee of Communist Party of China (CPC) and the State Council, we thoroughly implemented the policies and strategies of CPC Hunan Provincial Committee with determined hard work and collective actions, conquered regional mountain torrents and severe droughts seldom seen in history, tided over energy pinch, financial strain and rising inflation, and facilitated new-type industrialization, new urbanization, agricultural modernization, informatization and “Two-Oriented” Society construction. Overall, the main objectives and tasks set forth at the Fifth Session of Eleventh Hunan Provincial People’s Congress were successfully accomplished.

(1) Steady and rapid economic growth has been maintained.

In 2011, the province’s GDP grew by about 13% year on year to around 2,000 billion yuan (official estimates, similarly hereinafter), and its fiscal revenue rose by 31% from a year earlier to 246.07 billion yuan. The per capita income of Hunan's urban and rural residents reached 18,844 and 6,563 yuan respectively, presenting an increase of 13.8% and 16.7%.
Investment, consumption and export have contributed to economic growth in a coordinated way. Investment in fixed assets surged by 28% to 1,140 billion yuan; retail volume of social consumer goods increased by 17.8% to 680 billion yuan; foreign trade volume rose by 27% to 18.6 billion U.S. dollars.
Infrastructure facilities have been improved to better serve economic development. A new terminal of Changsha Huanghua International Airport has been put into operation; the province’s newly-added expressway mileage has amounted to 262 kilometers; 2,001 kilometers of arterial highway and 14,354 kilometers of rural highway have been newly renovated or constructed; Hunan’s 1,070 at-risk small reservoirs included in the Central Government-backed maintenance plan were repaired and consolidated; the province’s installed electrical capacity increased by 2.42 million kilowatts; 40,587 kilometers of power transmission lines in rural areas have been upgraded and reconstructed; full production run has been achieved for the Changlian Crude Oil Processing and Oil Quality Upgradation Project; the key water control project of Xiangjiang River in Changsha City and the water treatment of Dongting Lake has been accelerated.

(2) Strong and potent assurance for economic operation has been realized.

Efforts have been intensified to ensure power supply. We have strived for support from state ministries and commissions, diverted energy from outside the province, and launched the project of building a gas-oriented Hunan. As the campaign to cope with power shortfalls at consumption peaks over the year was carried out across the province, a series of measures including ensuring adequate coal supply for power generation and adjusting electricity tariff were implemented, essentially covering 129.3 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity demand throughout the province.
Every endeavor has been made to stabilize commodity prices. We have resolutely implemented the system of provincial governors taking responsibility for the "rice bag" (grain supply) program and city mayors for the "vegetable basket" (non-grain food supply) program. Measures of curbing rising prices have been adopted at the links including production, supply, distribution, and cost reducing, bringing the growth rate in consumer prices back down to 5.5%.
We have actively raised funds for provincial development. Government bonds issued by the Central Government on behalf of local authorities reached 8.9 billion yuan, and approved corporate bonds hit 7.75 billion yuan. We have helped small and medium-sized enterprises address financial difficulties by expanding the scale of credit and increasing the proportion of direct financing. Last year, ten more enterprises were listed at home and abroad. Financing via capital and money markets amounted to 280 billion yuan.
Resource supply in the province has been heightened. The province has achieved a balance between occupation and supplement of arable land for twelve consecutive years, and satisfied the land demand stipulated by major infrastructure construction and projects concerning people’s livelihood. Exploitation of mineral resources has been rectified and standardized. Special rectification on sand mining and workplace hazards screening were carried out. Significant achievements have been scored in geological prospecting.

(3) Transformation of economic development mode and adjustment of economic structure have been advanced.

We have propelled the progress of new-type industrialization. The added value in scale industries grew by 19.5% to 795 billion yuan, and the high-tech industries witnessed an increase of 32%. We have also pressed ahead with the “Four 100-Billion-Yuan Output Projects”, with the annual output of the electronic information industry and Yueyang petrochemical industrial cluster reaching 100 billion yuan each. The emerging industries of srategic importance have maintained a good momentum of development. The province now boasts of 10 national high-tech industrial development zones, economic and technological development zones and export processing zones, whose added value has increased by 22%. The integration of defense and civilian industries has been expedited. Continuous progress has been made in enhancing the province’s independent innovation capability. A batch of state-level key innovation platforms were established in Hunan, scoring over 800 scientific achievements and over 16,000 patents. The "super rice" achieved a harvest of 926.6 kg per mu during its trial plantation on 100 mu of farmland (1 mu is equal to about 666.7 square meters).
Steady development was seen in modern agriculture. Increase in grain yield reached 900 million kilograms and sales revenue in the agricultural products processing industry rose by 21.9% to 390 billion yuan. The experimental project of constructing new countryside in 10,000 villages of 100 cities and county-level cities and 1,000 townships is being carried out in full swing.
Rapid development was realized in modern service industries such as tourism, logistics, service outsourcing, and creative design. State-level Pilot reform of service industry in Hengyang and tourism industry in Zhangjiajie maintained a steady progress. Hunan’s tourism revenue totaled 178 billion yuan, up by 25%.
Significant improvement in investment structure was acquired. Share of non-state investment in the provincial total climbed two percentage points from the previous year. Investments in high and new technology industries and technical up gradation jumped by 32% and 35% respectively, while investment growth rate in six energy-intensive industries fell 18 percentage points. The non-public sectors of the economy have achieved a rapid growth, whose added value occupied about 55% of the provincial total. The development of regional economy presented a new pattern. Over 80% of provincial economic growth was contributed by Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan (CZT) City Cluster; a national demonstration area for undertaking industrial transfer in south Hunan was approved; 37 counties, county-level cities and districts were included in the national pilot program for poverty alleviation and development in the area around Wuling Mountain.

(4) Construction of “Two-Oriented” Society has been accelerated.

The leadership structure and working mechanism has been improved in the pilot zone for “Two-Oriented” Society construction (constructing a resource-saving and environment-friendly society) in CZT City Cluster, and the second-phase reform and construction is being sped up. We have strived for more than 50 national trial reform programs, and thrashed out 6 standard systems for “Two-Oriented” Society construction, including “Two-Oriented” communities and “Two-Oriented” industrial parks; the CZT City Cluster has been approved as a national experimental zone for the integration of informatization and industrialization. Zhuzhou Smelter Group Co., Ltd., Tiger Forest & Paper Co., Ltd., and Xiangtan Iron and Steel Group Co., Ltd. were included in China’s first batch of “Two-Oriented” pilot enterprises. Endeavors in energy conservation and emission reduction were intensified. 113 enterprises were listed in the national program of closing small businesses as part of energy crackdown. Energy consumption per unit of added value of scale industries in the province has dropped by 9%; heavy metal pollution treatment within Xiangjiang River basin has been initiated and the centralized rural environment treatment in Hunan was included in national trial program. The assessment of emission reduction targets, enforcement of environmental laws, and emergency management has been strengthened. The protection and construction of key ecological function areas have enjoyed a smooth progress, with the area of grain plots returned to forestry reaching 942,000 mu (628 square kilometers) and the forest cover rate staying at 57.01%. Solid advancement has been made in the preservation of biological diversity, and positive effects have been demonstrated in prevention and control of geological disasters.

(5) Reform and opening up have been further intensified.

We have hammered out a pilot water reform plan to propel the innovation of differential pricing for domestic water use. Classified reform on public institutions was pushed forward and assets inspection carried out in provincial administrative institutions. Round-off work for the reform of state-owned enterprises was promoted to improve the modern corporate system. 15 more cooperation projects were secured from China's Central-Government-administered state-owned enterprises (SOEs). New progress has been achieved in reforming rural credit cooperative systems. Jixiang Life Insurance Co., Ltd. was approved to be established as Hunan’s first insurance corporation for legal persons. Coverage of the social credit system was expanded to key industries and fields. We have fulfilled the main objectives set forth in the tenure reform of collective forest property system and institutional reform of townships. Over 10 million mu (about 6,666.7 square kilometers) farmland has been involved in rural land-use right transfer program.
Opening up has been further intensified. The actual utilized foreign capital totalled 6.1 billion U.S. dollars and the paid-in domestic capital touched 208.6 billion yuan. Eight more world's top 500 companies, including Foxconn, established their branches in the province.
Hunan's import and export volume of processing trade grew by 50% and the executive value of service outsourcing contracts by 51%. A series of economic and trade activities were hosted in Hunan, including the 2011 China Hunan (European) Investment Promotion Week, Visit to ASEAN-Hunan Week, Sino-Portuguese Youth Economic Cooperation Forum, Guangdong-Hong Kong Project Cooperation Fair, and the Seventh Hunan-Taiwan Cooperation Conference on Economy and Trade. Hunan section of the Wuhan-Guangzhou High-speed Rail has witnessed a smooth and safe operation. The passenger flow in Hunan’s airports continued to take the lead in central China.

(6) Remarkable headway has been achieved in cultural undertakings.

We have extensively promoted the reform of cultural systems and completed the innovation of cultural administration structures and law enforcement in cultural market in cities (prefecture) and counties (county-level cities and districts). The reform of state-owned theatrical groups, non-political newspapers and periodical publishing houses, and film studios were seen progressing well. Hunan Provincial Broadcasting and Television Bureau realized the separation of TV stations from the bureau and administration from operation, and completed the integration of broadcast-TV network.
Development of the system of public cultural services has noticeably accelerated. Renovation and expansion of Hunan Provincial Museum has been started. The project of sharing cultural information and resources among counties, townships and villages and the program of establishing comprehensive cultural centers in villages and towns have been completed. We have established 19,818 book houses for farmers, funded free entry to Hunan’s libraries, art galleries, memorial halls and cultural centers, and increased the coverage rate of broadcasting to 96%.
The development of cultural industries has been greatly accelerated. Hunan TV & Broadcast Intermediary and the Central South Publishing Media Group entered the list of China’s top 500 companies in 2011. The animation industry showed a sound and rapid development.
Efforts have been intensified to promote cultural exchanges. We participated in the Second Cross-Strait Intangible Cultural Heritage Month. Artworks themed as “Splendid Hunan” made a space tour in China's unmanned spacecraft Shenzhou VIII, revealing to the world Hunan’s great charm.

(7) Efforts have been strengthened to ensure and improve people's wellbeing.

Financial expenditure concerning people’s livelihood amounted to 227.43 billion yuan in 2011, which was 30.9% higher than that of the previous year. We have fully completed or outperformed the province’s target of implementing 32 concrete projects in nine fields concerning citizens’ living conditions. Periodic objectives for reforming pharmaceutical and healthcare systems have been fulfilled, and the basic endowment insurance trial scheme for urban and rural residents has been implemented in 96 counties (county-level cities and districts) across the province. We have started the construction of 466,000 indemnificatory apartments and houses in shanty towns, 227,000 of which were completed, outperforming the annual task assigned by the Central Government. A total of 114,000 dilapidated houses have been renovated for poverty-stricken rural households, reconstruction of bridges in danger has been initiated, and an additional 3.18 million people gained access to safe drinking water. We steadily increased the basic living allowances for entitled urban and rural residents as well as the compensation for food, clothing, medical care, housing and burial expenses of childless and infirm old people. We promptly instituted a sound mechanism to raise social assistance and social security benefits when commodity prices rise. We made constant efforts to increase employment. The number of urban jobs increased by 716,000, and 13.155 million agricultural workers found urban employment. Urban registered unemployment rate stood at 4.18%. We comprehensively implemented the responsibility system for workplace safety, and launched special rectifications in key industries and areas.
Rapid progress has been made in all social programs. By implementing the plan of building Hunan into a strong province in education, we launched the Three-Year Action Plan for preschool education, balanced the development of compulsory education, improved the service capability of vocational education institutions, and upgraded the capability of running colleges and universities. Fruitful results have been made in the patriotic sanitation campaign, prevention and control of severe diseases, and safeguarding of food and medicine safety. We vigorously carried out the national fitness program and substantially raised the level of competitive sports.

(8) Spiritual civilization and law-based administration have been reinforced.

With the publicity campaign marking the 90th anniversary of CPC as the channel, we have pushed forward the education on social and professional ethics, family virtues, and personal morality. Ideological and moral education for juveniles has been enhanced. Changsha and Changde were conferred as “National Civilized City”.
The improvement of democracy and legal system have been accelerated. We took initiative to consult the people about governance, find their needs, and seek their suggestions in the campaign of “Greeting the Tenth Party Congress of Hunan Province and Starting a New Journey”. We invited the Hunan Provincial People’s Congress and the CPPCC Hunan Provincial Committee to supervise and support our work and proactively took advice from personages belonging to all circles. We implemented the resolutions of Hunan Provincial People’s Congress in accordance with law and handled the suggestions and opinions of congress delegates earnestly. We valued and upheld the role of CPPCC Hunan Provincial Committee in exercising political consultation and democratic supervision and participating in deliberating and administration of state affairs. We tried to handle the proposals made by the committee members and accept the investigation results on “Hunan’s Development Environment” provided by the Hunan Provincial Committee of Democratic Parties, the Hunan Provincial Association of Industry and Commerce, and non-Party personages. Last year, we handled 1,134 suggestions from delegates of the Hunan Provincial People’s Congress and 695 proposals from members of the CPPCC Hunan Provincial Committee, with a settlement rate of 100%.
The development of a law-based government has been sped up. We issued the “Regulations on Service of Hunan Provincial People's Government” on the basis of “The Outlines for Building a Law-governed Hunan”, and initially formulated an administration system featuring “one scheme, two regulations, and six measures”.
Legislation has been further strengthened. We submitted 7 local laws and regulations to the Hunan Provincial People’s Congress and its standing committee for deliberation and approval and promulgated 9 regulations of the provincial government. Democracy at the primary level has been boosted. We successfully held the eighth election of villagers' committees and accomplished the three-year tasks of improving democracy, transparency and accountability in village governance. Substantial progress has been made in elevating transparency of issues concerning factory workers and village residents. We actively facilitated the implementation of Sixth Five-Year Plan to educate public about the law. Channels for people to report on social conditions and popular sentiment were made more convenient, with a total of 3,592 letters from netizens to the Governor’s Mailbox handled. We gradually improved the mechanism for mediating and settling conflicts and disputes and the system for contingency response. We handled mass disturbances aptly, and the emergency management system has been gradually perfected. With the comprehensive program of public order steadily propelled, all kinds of crimes were forcefully cracked down in accordance with the law.

(9)Administrative efficiency has been further improved.

We carried out the performance system in year 2011 and established the network information feedback system and evaluation system for supervising the administrative efficiency of the provincial, municipal and county governments. The mechanism of power operation was standardized comprehensively with 3,704 standard power operation items implemented by 69 departments directly under Hunan Provincial People's Government and the Central Government agencies in Hunan. We held the 11th clearance of administrative permissive projects and reduced 203 such projects, attaining a reduction rate of 35.6%. Online government service and electronic monitoring system of provincial, municipal and county governments were put into operation, which has facilitated government service and made government affairs more public. Substantial progress was made in the direct report of statistical data through network, and auditing supervision was strengthened which has standardized capital operation.
New achievements have been made in many aspects including ethnic groups, religions, Taiwan affairs, overseas Chinese affairs, promotion of international trade, industry and commerce, quality supervision, inspection and quarantine, family planning, civil air defense, consultation, literature and history, local chronicles, archives, supply and marketing, immigrants, the handicapped, the old, earthquake, meteorology, surveying and mapping, security, Red Cross and intellectual property rights. Meanwhile, new progress has been achieved in the undertakings related to the Labor Union, the Communist Youth League, women, children, etc.
We have made genuine progress in construction of national defense and reserve force. National defense mobilization has been further consolidated. Hunan-based People's Liberation Army, armed police and militia actively supported the construction of new-type industrialization, new urbanization, agricultural modernization, and informatization, and the building of a well-off, resource-saving and environment-friendly society. They contributed enormously to the actions of disaster relief, poverty reduction and social stability. National defense education continued to be strengthened, and the integration of military and civilians has developed steadily, producing a harmonious relation between the military and government and between the military and civilians.
Fellow deputies, it is not easy for us to initiate such a good start for the 12th Five-Year Plan. And we should further strengthen our consciousness and steadiness of scientific development, and fulfill the Central Government’s macroeconomic policy in a creative manner; we should precisely grasp the current characteristics of Hunan’s development which is insufficient, incomprehensive, and discontinuous, and try our best to enlarge the total economic output, raise the per capita output, and promote the quality of economic operation, so as to explore a scientific developing mode suitable for Hunan characteristics.
We must make overall plan so as to take into consideration every aspect of economic development. We should keep a sober mind in face of the complicated economic situation, make full use of our advantages and get rid of unhealthy factors, in order to maintain the momentum of economic growth, economic operation and social stability and improve people's lives.
The great economic and social achievements made in the past years are attributed to the existing and previous Party committees and provincial government and to the great efforts of all citizens in this province. Hereby on behalf of the Hunan 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, federations 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 affiliated to the Central Government, to all compatriots of the Hong Kong SAR (Special Administrative Region), Macau SAR and Taiwan and all the overseas Chinese and international friends.
There is no doubt that we were also confronted with many difficulties and challenges in 2011.
First, economic growth and management mode developed in an extensive way with an irrational industrial structure, the constraint from energy, natural resource, and environment became day by day prominent. Therefore, we should adjust economic structure and transform economic pattern while highlighting steady growth, to constantly elevate the quality and efficiency of economic growth and improve our refined management.
Second, it is urgent to enhance the cultivation of emerging industries of strategic importance, which needs to further gather various innovative elements to serve the emerging strategic industries.
Third, the general price level is still on the high side and the inflation pressure is still large, which requires scientific methods to prevent inflation while maintaining economic growth.
Fourth, development in urban and rural areas, and in different regions and industries is still unbalanced, which needs to build a mechanism with rational and efficient allocation of production factors.
Fifth, it is still a hard task to protect and improve people's wellbeing, which requires we further enhance the capacity of supplying basic public service products while increasing the total economic output.
Sixth, we should accelerate the transformation of government functions, propel the administrative efficiency and improve work approach.

Ⅱ. In the spirit of the 10th Hunan Provincial Congress of the CPC, we will accelerate the construction of a well-off “Two-Oriented” Society and new-type industrialization, new urbanization, agricultural modernization, and informationization.

The 10th Hunan Provincial Congress of the CPC blows the horn of accelerating the construction of a well-off “Two-Oriented” Society in an all-round way. So we should work harder and take more initiative to turn the blueprint painted at the Congress into a glorious reality.
Nowadays, new things, changes and problems are emerging endlessly. Internationally, the overall world economic situation is extremely complicated and pregnant with grim possibilities. All outside factors, such as unfathomable European debt crisis, global flood of liquidity, weak international market, shortage of energy and resource supply, and growing protectionism, are exerting a much severer influence upon our economy. However, we believe that economic globalization is irreversible; peace, development and cooperation are what the world are longing for; adjustment, reforming and transformation are the general trend of our times. So in such an international situation, in which the world is undertaking a huge transformation and adjustment, and production factors are being reorganized and its circulation is being sped up, we must make and seize every opportunity to stimulate economic growth by boosting international and domestic demand.
Domestically, our industrialization and urbanization are undergoing rapid improvement. The economy, originally stimulated by policy, is now being changed in an orderly way to growing automatically. More attention is being focused on the pertinence, flexibility and foresight of the micro-control. More efforts are being distributed to acceleration of the transformation of development pattern and improvement of substantial economy. The economy development is being led in the direction anticipated by macro-controlling. We should take full advantage of the reversed transmission of the demand for easing monetary condition because of decrease in external requirements to win in the competition for a commanding height in the transformation of development pattern and reconstruction.
Provincially, Hunan’s economy is undergoing dramatic growing. Three economic regions, namely Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan City Cluster, southern Hunan and Great Xiangxi (western Hunan) have reached the national strategic level successively. We must enhance our confidence to overcome difficulties and challenges. We should seize the important historical opportunity that the three economic regions are supported by the nation to realize better and faster development.
The overall requirements in economic and social development this year are: we must hold high the great banner of scientific development to promote economic development in a steady manner, while controlling price, adjusting economic structure, intensifying reform, improving people's well-being and enhancing stability; efforts should be taken to ensure bettering of people's livelihood; endeavors will be made to escalate total economic output, per capita possession and operation quality; we need accelerate construction of new-type industrialization, new urbanization, agricultural modernization, informatization, and the building of a well-off, resource-saving and environment-friendly society, to pave way for success of the 18th National Congress of the CPC.
Our major objectives this year include increasing GDP by 13%, fiscal revenue by 15%, fixed assets investment by 22%, total retail sales of consumer goods by 15%, and per capita income for urban and rural residents by 10% and 11% respectively; fulfilling the energy conservation and emission-reduction target and tasks assigned by the central government; keeping the growth rate of consumer price at about 4.5% and bringing down registered unemployment rate in cities and towns and natural growth rate of population to within 4.6% and 7‰ respectively.
To achieve the outlined goals, we must keep a firm grasp on expanding domestic demand, pay close attention to developing the real economy, attach greater importance to stepping up the pace of reform and innovation and spare no effort to guarantee and improve people's well-being. We should adhere to scientific development, persist in opening-up and reform, and remain faithful to innovation and creation. We should accelerate a balanced development in urban and rural areas, protect and improve people's livelihood, and promote exercise of administrative functions according to law.

Ⅲ. We will work hard to reinforce development priorities, and make practical joint efforts to improve people’s livelihood.

To fulfill this task, the following guidelines should be adhered to:

(1) We will spare no efforts in ensuring sound and rapid economic growth.

Capital supply channels should be broadened. Based on the key projects under construction and continued projects, projects concerning people’s livelihood, and agriculture, farmers and rural areas, and enterprises which comply with industrial policies and small enterprises in particular, we will strive to attain national support. Sound government investment growth mechanism and channeling of financial funds should be developed, investment from social capitals should be supported, and efforts should be made to attract 7 trillion USD foreign investment and 240 trillion yuan domestic investment and new loans from financial institutions. Enterprises are encouraged to list and finance at home and aboard, and issue small and medium-sized collection notes and collection bonds. For listed companies, the scale of refunding, corporate bonds, short-term financing bills, medium term notes and private placement are to be enlarged. We should invite social security funds and insurance funds into the province to vigorously develop Jixiang Life Insurance Co., Ltd. Additionally, the roles of investment banks, investment funds and industrial funds need to be activated.
We will enhance power supply capacity. Efforts are to be made to meet the power demand of 144 billion kilowatt-hours generated by 20 million tons of coal supplied by the province and 20 million tons from outside the province. We shall advance our energy supply capacity, propel power and energy integration across Hunan, and accelerate the construction of an energy supply platform. Appropriate measures should be taken to broaden channels of introducing energy sources into Hunan, build Chenglingji Coal Base, hew out new routes for coal transportation, and support major Hunan-based coal enterprises to explore sources outside the province. Furthermore, there is a dire need to purchase more electricity from outside the province, and speed up the preliminary work of Gansu-Hunan ±800 KV high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission project. Great importance should be attached to assisting key central power corporations, facilitating construction of a “Gas-oriented” Hunan, and carrying forward cooperative projects with Shenhua Group such as setup of coal reserve (transmit) base, and projects concerning electricity.
We should intensify efforts to rectify and standardize the order of mineral resource development, and advance and implement mechanisms like volume control, access and withdrawal, mining rights transfer and market supervision. Scientific exploration, scale exploration, green exploration, and risk reconnoitering in foreign countries are encouraged.
We should also spare no efforts in improving land management and implementing the strictest land conservation system. Priority should be given to satisfy land requirement in such circles as emerging industries, infrastructure and major projects concerning people’s livelihood. Efforts should be intensified to win land use approval, strengthen land use regulation, carry forward differentiation in land use as always, and dispose vacant land. We will push forward the pilot program of increasing arable area in rural areas and decreasing urban construction land, steadily carry out collective construction land transaction, better manage the rural residential land and improve conservation intensive land use by implementing strict fixed standards.
We should regulate the management, operation and disposal of state-owned assets. It is urgent to speed up investigating capitals of the local enterprises involved in banking and culture. All the capital is to be employed according to laws and regulations, and new methods and mechanism of distribution, usage and revenue relocation need to be published. Besides, we should also stimulate the increase of assets and carry out mergers and acquisitions, to avoid idle and waste of the state-owned assets. A better management system is a must to raise the management level, as well as strengthen classified regulation, dynamic regulation, full monitory and joint supervision by all departments. Endeavors should be made to take strict precautions against concealment and private sharing of assets, obtaining and misappropriating assets income, to ward off squander and loss of assets.
Talents management is an important task as well. We will highlight cultivation of innovative talents in science and technology, highly skilled workers and people with practical skills in the countryside. It is essential to vigorously induce talents and intellectuals who have mastered core technology and lead the construction of featured disciplines. Another key to talents management is efficient employment of the introduced talents. We will strive to break geographical and industry restrictions, reform household registration and files management, create a favorable stage for an orderly flow of talents, and encourage all kinds of talents to contribute to our economy. Good services are to be provided to set up a friendly environment for development, reasonable distribution and continuous flow of the talents.

(2) We will vigorously promote new-industrialization.

No efforts should be spared to advance the innovative development of industrial transfer. Technological transformation, merger and reorganization are two significant steps to realize 500 trillion yuan investment for technological renovation. Guangzhou Auto Fiat, expansion of display glass panel by Lens Technology, Huaqiang cultural and technological industrial base and other major projects will be promptly carried forward. Resource and technological elements should be inclined towards industries which conform to the national industrial policies, energy conservation and emissions reduction strategy, industries that have market potential with proper profits and scale, and traditional industries which may bring benefits to people.
We should build a multi-point support industrial development pattern, and foster a series of industrial clusters that enjoy widespread scope and updated technology. Due attention should be paid to thoroughly carry out the “four 100-billion-yuan output” project, and accelerate integration of industrial chains among key industries including advanced energy storage materials and modern TCM(traditional Chinese medicine). Efforts should be doubled to strengthen competitive industries such as equipment manufacture, non-ferrous metals processing, and food and petrochemical industries. We will strain every nerve to strengthen industrial clusters like electronic information, new materials, automobiles & spare parts in Changsha, electronic locomotives, rail vehicles and general aviation in Zhuzhou, wind power generation in Xiangtan, power Transmission and transformation equipment.
Structural adjustment of industrial products is imperative. We shall do our utmost to enhance the R&D of high value-added products with independent intellectual property right, support increase in market share for products with impressive demands and profit margin. It is important to guide industrial enterprises to enter into parks, propel construction of comprehensive national high-tech industrial bases and parks, encourage development of Chenzhou’s non-ferrous metals industrial parks, and build systemic industrial parks with particular features, perfect function and well-orderly divisions and collaborations.
We will foster the development of emerging industries of strategic importance. Priority should be given to certain fields with certain foundation, comparative advantages, and high possibility of breakthrough, for example, equipment manufacture, new materials, information, and energy conservation & environmental protection. We will do our best to focus on boosting the 100 key projects in strategic emerging industries, cultivate a batch of competitive enterprises which meet market demand, own core technology, lay emphasis on innovation and enjoy flexible mechanism, so as to form a new economical growth point as soon as possible. More energy should be placed to lead the matchmaking process as well as interaction and blending between strategic emerging industries and traditional competitive industries, manage the balance between labor-intensive industries and technical and capital-intensive industries. These industries should offer more job opportunities and make full use of available human resources.
Due attention should be paid to increase the ability of independent creativity. We will publish and implement Construction Program of Innovative Hunan, focusing on the implementation of a number of S&T major projects, projects integrating production, education and research, and other key projects. In the fields like integrated circuits, next generation web, and innovative medicine, endeavors should be exerted to make breakthrough in core technologies and key generic technologies, optimize the structure of innovative platforms, integrate innovative resources of major parks, universities and research institutions, advance the share of research facilities and information, and build upon industrial technology innovation construction. Enterprises should strengthen their capabilities of independent research and manufacture, thus propelling the transfer from “made in Hunan” to “created by Hunan”. Enterprises are encouraged to carry out the new products industrialization and application, boost local transformation of defense S&T achievements, set up a group of research achievement transformation bases and industrial incubation bases, thus forming a nice cycle of increasing profits with innovation and stimulating innovation with profits.
We must intensify efforts to double scientific innovation and service level in the county (county-level cities) units, and provide them with stronger scientific support. It is also necessary to combine science with banking, bring forward the leading role of ventures in such fields as electronic information, biomedicine and new materials, so as to construct a creative investment system featuring multi-levels, multi-channels and multi-development. Due emphasis should be laid to perfect the mechanisms for innovation stimulation and research accomplishments protection and evaluation, and enhance the creation, usage, protection and management of intellectual rights.
Proper measures should be taken to gear up thorough integration of informatization and industrialization. The construction of Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan national pilot zone for integration of informatization and industrialization and other provincial zones in this regard should be accelerated; infrastructure for information network including national supercomputer center in Changsha, geographic information service (GIS) platform, and natural disaster information database demand improvements. It is a must to advance the information technology public service platform, boost cloud computing, internet and other related industries, and further “climbing plan” for informatization in enterprises. We will facilitate the construction of a digital Hunan, boost information technology’s role in social and economic life, and quicken the construction of parks and manufacturing innovation bases for mobile electronic business. We shall exert great efforts to promote the pioneering work of intellectual transportation, smart grids and smart cities. It is also essential to elevate informatization in rural areas.
The new-type industrialization should be expanded. We will encourage competitive enterprises to carry out mergers and cross-region acquisition, cross-trade, cross-field, and cross-ownership pattern, to create a bunch of leading enterprises with greater influence and powerful motive force. Support should be extended to carry further the goal of achieving 100-million-yuan outputs for Hunan Valin Iron and Steel Group, Zoomlion, Sany Group, and Hunan Nonferrous Metals Holding Group, etc. With regard to small and medium-sized enterprises, we are going to offer better services and continue to promote developmental projects for the small and medium-sized enterprises, perfect the financing policies and risk compensation mechanism. We should improve the policies involving credit guarantee government procurement and directional purchase, to help enterprises solve problems such as sales, finance, and employment.
