With the new year starting today, the spring breeze is blowing again. After saying goodbye to the harvesting 2019, we ushered in the promising 2020. At this wonderful moment, on behalf of the CPC Nanning Municipal Committee and the Nanning Municipal People's Government, we would like to extend our new year’s greetings and best wishes to the people of all ethnic groups in the city and to all friends who care about and support the reform and development of Nanning!
The year passed by was an extraordinary year in Nanning's development history. In the past year, we witnessed the 70th anniversary of the founding of the PRC, and truly felt the self-confidence and boldness of hundreds of millions of Chinese people in their strides towards national rejuvenation, further consolidated the powerful synergy to march into the new era and build the Chinese dream. We ushered in the comprehensive mobilization and deployment for the strategy of strengthening the capital carried out by the autonomous region, and deeply felt the great attention and sincere wish of the CPC Guangxi Committee and the People’s Government of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region to the capital, which greatly encouraged and motivated us. Facing the complicated domestic and foreign conditions as well as the unprecedented opportunities and challenges, we always kept in mind the entrustment of the General Secretary Xi Jinping, forged ahead with gratitude, united our strengths to overcome difficulties, and continually implemented the new mission of the "three major positions" and the new requirement of "five solids" to further emancipate the mind, deepen reform and innovation, expand opening up and take on practical work, and sweated and toiled as pressing ahead with concrete efforts for achievements. As a result, the city has made new changes in all fields and is taking on a fresh look.
Over the past year, Nanning, the capital, has unswervingly promoted high-quality development, and made new commendable changes. We have actively implemented the new development concept and comprehensively implemented the strategy of strengthening the capital. The overall economy has seen stable and quality progress, with significantly enhanced motivation, continuously optimized structure, and continuously improved quality. The fiscal revenue has exceeded 80 billion yuan, and the comprehensive strength has become stronger. We have always adhered to the strategy of strengthening the city through industry, accelerated the development of the three key industries -- electronic information, advanced equipment manufacturing and biomedicine, steadily advanced the projects of AAC Technologies, Goertek, and Longqi Information, and successfully introduced the Wanyou International Tourism Resort, Hozon New Energy Automobile, Enovate New Energy Automobile, Inspur ASEAN Operating Headquarters and other major projects.

Over the past year, Nanning, the capital, has unswervingly improved the well-being of people and submitted praiseworthy answer sheet. We have adhered to people-centered idea, solidly made up for the shortcomings, and laid a solid foundation to fight against the three tough battles. Three national impoverished counties, Shanglin, Mashan and Long’an, and 109 poor villages of the city will get rid of poverty, indicating that nearly 90,000 people get rid of poverty. This is the result of the painstaking efforts and hard work of the poverty alleviation cadres. Thank you all for the hard work. The village revitalization strategy was further implemented. The scale of banana, jasmine, dragon fruit, sweet corn and other industries continued to top the list in the country, and the "Yong" (short for Nanning) brand of agricultural products was further spread. The dream of strong agriculture, beautiful countryside, and rich farmers became reality. The concept of "governing the water, building the city, and serving the people" was deeply rooted in people's hearts. The quality of the Green City (refers to Nanning) was constantly upgraded, and air quality continued to rank among the top cities in China's capital cities, winning the "three consecutive championships" of beautiful landscape cities. Nanning has a bluer sky, greener water, and a more beautiful environment. The city changed for the better day by day. The main line of Fengling North Road, the third phase of Yinhai Avenue, and the extension of Tinghong Road were open for traffic. The Metro Line 3 was put into operation. The Wuxiang New District was full of vitality, and the Hundred-li Beautiful Yongjiang River was dressed with flowing lights and colors. With more spacious roads and more convenient transportation, Nanning became more livable. Basic public services have been improved; as the construction of Nanning Education Park has been accelerated, and 55 public primary and secondary schools and kindergartens have been newly built in the city. Collectivization development has been achieved in the medical and health field. Smart applications such as the "i-Nanning" APP have provided more and more convenient services for the citizens. "China Cup" football match, Sudirman Cup Badminton Championships, UCI World Tour: Tour of Guangxi and other exciting games have been held. It has made new achievement in effectively preventing and resolving major risks as well as in the special campaign to combat organized crime and root out local mafia, by doing so the citizens have got more sense of gain, happiness and security.
Over the past year, Nanning, the capital, has unswervingly deepened reform and opening up with admirable determined steps. We continue to push forward the comprehensively deepening reform and have made breakthroughs in 37 key reform tasks in ten major areas. The connotation and extension of the intelligent cloud platform for public asset-liability management which is the first in China have been continuously expanded. The reform of "streamline administration, delegating powers, improving regulation and services" and the institutional reform have been advanced in depth and width. The “Internet + real estate registration” reform has been commended by the State Council. The practice on the “smart human resources and social security service” has been promoted nationwide. The business environment has been further optimized, and the current quantity and the incremental quantity of the main market players have ranked first in the region, taking the lead in the rapid growth in Guangxi. The market vitality of the capital burst out. We have deeply integrated into the "Belt and Road" construction and actively participated in the construction of New Western Land-Sea Corridor.

Over the past year, Nanning, the capital, has steadfastly strengthened self-discipline in the Party in an all-round way, and made praisable advancement. The original intention and mission are the inexhaustible driving force for the long march of the new era. We have carried out in-depth education on the theme of “remaining true to our original aspiration and keeping our mission firmly in mind”, and have solidly promoted the comprehensive progress of the grass-roots Party organizations. The “four first-line” guidelines for personnel selection and employment have become increasingly clear. The fault-tolerance and correction mechanism has been further improved. The activities of “the year of burden alleviation by the grass-roots units” have made significant results, and the cadres are even more active to undertake responsibilities and make differences; the political ecology of the capital which is clean and upright, and work-oriented, has been consolidated after ceaseless correction of discipline, and the favorable atmosphere in which people are trying to make forward progress has become even stronger.
Looking back at the past year, the city's Party members, cadres, and people worked hard in their own posts, writing extraordinary lives with ordinariness, and converging majestic force with perseverance and efforts to push Nanning forward. They have played a beautiful movement of love, action and fruit. We praise every fighter in the new era and pay tribute to the creator and guardian of good life!
2020 is the year to build a well-off society in an all-round way and achieve the first centenary goal. It is also the crucial year for the decisive battle against poverty, and the critical year for the start of the strategy of strengthening the capital. We must always hold high the great banner of Xi Jinping's Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, comprehensively implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important instructions to Guangxi, consciously regard “remaining true to our original aspiration and keeping our mission firmly in mind” as a lifelong task, and focus on building a well-off society in an all-round way. Let’s seize the day and live it to the full by comprehensively implementing the strategy of strengthening the capital, continuing to strengthen industry, innovation, finance, hub, opening up and governance, and working hard in good faith to benefit people, so as to go all out for the "acceleration” of the high-quality development in Nanning, and to create the core growth pole that leads the development of the whole region.
Hit the paddle when the tide is rising, the wonderful scenery is right ahead. We firmly believe that under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core, with the sincere care and strong support of the CPC Guangxi Committee and the People’s Government of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, and the unity and whole-heartedness of the whole city, the capital Nanning will certainly be able to write more excellent answer sheet of high-quality development, and will definitely play a greater role and make greater achievements in the new journey of building a magnificent Guangxi.
May our great motherland thriving and prosperous! May the people in the city live in peace and happiness!
