On November 30, the 37th meeting of Jiangsu Development Forum on the theme of "Jiangsu: taking the lead in realizing socialist modernization" was held at Nanjing University. Lou Qinjian, Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the Provincial People's Congress, Wu Zhenglong, governor and Deputy Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Huang Lixin, President of the Provincial Committee of Political Affairs attended the meeting to listen to experts and scholars. Jiangsu Provincial Government Counsellor, Professor Jiang Fuxin of Business School of Nanjing Normal University was invited to the meeting and made a special report on the "Key Points and Countermeasures of Building World-Class Private Enterprises in Jiangsu Province".
According to the report of Professor Jiang Fuxin, in conjunction with the document "Recommendations of the CPC Central Committee on Formulating the 14th Five-Year Plan for National Economy and Social Development and the 2035 Vision" adopted at the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee, it was pointed out that Jiangsu should strive to set an example, strive to be a model and stand in the forefront in the new stage of development, and make a difference in the construction of world-class private enterprises. From four aspects of scale comparison, benefit comparison, innovation comparison and brand comparison, Professor Jiang elaborated on the gap and problems facing Jiangsu's building of world-class private enterprises, and put forward feasible suggestions.
Lou Qinjian thanked the experts and scholars for their concern for the development of Jiangsu, and asked relevant parties to study and absorb the opinions and suggestions put forward by the experts and scholars, and to communicate with everyone on the modernization construction of Jiangsu. He said that General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech during his visit to Jiangsu is a strategic guide for us to carry out the spirit of the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee and start a new journey of modernization in an all-round way. We should deeply understand the responsibility and mission of Jiangsu modernization drive, link and learn the General Secretary's several important instructions to Jiangsu, and walk in the forefront. The overall development level of Jiangsu is relatively high, and it is conditional and responsible to take the lead in realizing socialist modernization. We must look at the future and plan modernization from a world perspective, strive to make successful cases without precedent, manage to do better and faster in general, and accumulate practical experience in solving common problems of modernization.
Lou Qinjian pointed out that it is necessary to accurately grasp the advantages and shortcomings of Jiangsu modernization drive, to compare with the General Secretary's request, and to focus on integrating and continuously amplifying the advantages of all aspects. It is also important to examine our shortcomings from the perspective of development, to mark the advanced level of standards, to solve outstanding problems in key core technologies, to constantly improve the quality of ecological environment and people's livelihood, and to see that comparative strengths and short board weaknesses are relative and dynamic, if the strengths can not be consolidated and expanded, they may become new weaknesses, and if the short board can be filled and strengthened, it will also become a new advantage. We must not only strengthen our confidence and give full play to our advantages, but also keep our heads up and know our shortcomings and forge ahead to achieve new breakthroughs.
Lou Qinjian stressed that it is of vital significance to scientifically plan the steps and key points of Jiangsu modernization construction, and embody "walking in the forefront" in the leading quality of construction progress. Modernization is the process of catching up, reaching and maintaining an advanced level, so we must always catch up with and surpass the advanced level of the world. In particular, it is necessary to focus on the five major features of socialist modernization with Chinese characteristics, to follow the rules, to actively act, and to do a good job in a down-to-earth manner in accordance with the overall arrangement of the country and the orientation of "walking in the forefront".
Wu Zhenglong thanked the experts for their long-term contribution to Jiangsu's reform, development and stability. He said that the insights published by experts and scholars were very inspiring for the province to jointly implement the 14th Five-Year Plan. In entering the new stage of development, we will adhere to Xi Jinping's thought of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, thoroughly study and implement the guiding spirit of the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee and General Secretary's important speech during the inspection of Jiangsu, resolutely shoulder the important responsibility and historical mission, unswervingly carry out the new development concept and promote high-quality development. We should regard reform and innovation as the fundamental driving force, effectively strengthen the construction of ecological civilization, firmly promote common prosperity, firmly adhere to the bottom line of security development, promote economic stability and social harmony, practice the "two maintenance" with excellent results, and return the Party Central Committee and General Secretary Xi Jinping's deep concern for Jiangsu.
