Delegates, all the achievements in the past year have not come easily. They are the results of unremitting efforts of the whole city united as one working tenaciously. On behalf of the municipal government, I hereby extend my sincere appreciation to all the people in the city, the democratic parties and people’s organizations, army forces in Hangzhou, police officers, and people from all walks of life!
At the time when we are acknowledging our achievements, we should also understand that there is no fundamental change in the quality of our economic development and structural contradiction still exists; greater pressure is awaiting us if we expect to have sustained growth, transformation and upgrading, and harmonious development; The restriction of economic structure, resources and environmental capacity is increasing; there is certain disparity between people’s demands and expectation and what they really have in the services of urban traffic, environmental protection and other public services; Government work remains to be further improved. Because of the dual impact of the international and domestic economic situations and the economic structural problems, the indexes in the regional GDP, fiscal revenue and foreign trade export fail to reach the expected goals. We should attach great importance to these problems, enhance the sense of responsibility and urgency, and take effective measures to solve the problems.
