The order of the year is often changeable. Now we are getting to a new chapter. On January 13, the Municipal Party Committee’s Economic Work Conference was held in Changhong Technology Center to summarize achievements, plan for the future, clarify ideas, and build consensus.
Outside the venue, the strongest cold wave of the year was surging; inside the venue, the executives were passionate about entrepreneurship.
"The '14th Five-Year Plan' achieved a good start." The participants at the meeting were all trying to figure out the weight of this sentence.
For the extremely extraordinary 2020, this sentence is a summary-in the face of the severe and complex international and domestic situation, Mianyang has done a solid job of "six stability", fully implemented the "six guarantees" task, and attained hard-won new results to promote the city's economic and social development.
For the challenging year of 2021, this sentence is an expectation-the severe impact of the novel cronavirus pneumonia epidemic and many uncertainties in the external environment, how should Mianyang maintain sustained and healthy economic development and overall social stability? How to start the comprehensive construction of socialist modernization in Mianyang Journey?
The Economic Work Conference of the Municipal Party Committee gave a sonorous answer: adhere to the general tone of seeking progress while maintaining stability, based on the new development stage, implement the new development concept, integrate into the new development pattern, and maintain sustained and healthy economic development and overall social stability.
Steady Progress with Hard-Won Transcripts

The results of micro-data reflect the hard-won economic answer in 2020. The meeting revealed that the city's economic operations this year showed a quarterly recovery, stable and positive trend.
"Achievements are hard to come by, and they are commendable." Participants have such a deep understanding.
Looking back on the extremely extraordinary 2020, our city has encountered the severe impact of the novel cronavirus pneumonia epidemic and heavy rains and floods. In addition to the severe and complex macroeconomic situation and arduous reform and development tasks, Mianyang’s economic and social development has multiple difficulties and multiple fronts.
Facing the difficulties, how did Mianyang "stable and progress" and hand over the beautiful "report card"?
Achievement comes from concentration. "Adhere to the guidance of Xi Jinping's Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, and always put the work in the overall situation of the whole province to plan and promote. This is the fundamental to ensure that Mianyang's economic work proceeds in the right direction." This is the consensus of the participants.
Achievement comes from planning. The city-wide on-site meeting to promote the high-quality development of the manufacturing industry, the city’s modern agricultural park construction on-site meeting, and the city’s service industry development meeting held in 2020 will not only give play to advantages, but also make up for shortcomings. In the opinion of the participants, Mianyang has always been developing the overall situation, seeking major issues, solving problems, and driving the overall situation with key breakthroughs.
Achievement comes from the gripper. Participants noticed that: in response to difficult tasks, the city "attained prescriptions" one by one-in-depth special rectification of forest and grassland fire prevention and special management of production safety, and no major production safety accidents occurred throughout the year. Two reforms of "second half" article comprehensive pilot have made solid progress, consolidate the foundation of county economic development. We have done a solid job in handling 63 practical matters concerning people's livelihood, accounting for 67.45% of the municipal fiscal expenditure on people's livelihood.
Keeping Pace with the Times, High-Quality Development is Promising
Good players, seek opportunities. Recently, the central and provincial Party committees held an economic work conference and put forward a series of new concepts and requirements. At the same time, they faced the challenge of te actual situation of "Mianyang's economic development is in an important window period for optimizing the regional development pattern, cultivating innovative development momentum, and enhancing industrial development advantages."
In the first year of the "14th Five-Year Plan", how and what should Mianyang's economic work be done? It is one of the most concerned issues for the heads of cities, counties (urban areas) and municipal departments.
"We shall never be distracted by temporary problems." Participants said that in the critical period of complex and severe economic situations at home and abroad, and the surging of pressure, the meeting put up a "operation map" and made strong arrangements to give everyone confidence in the high-quality development of Mianyang's economy.
The confidence lies in the major opportunities. The relevant person in charge of the Municipal Science and Technology Bureau said, "The construction of the Chengdu-Chongqing Dual-City Economic Circle and the approval of the construction of the Mianyang Science and Technology City New District will release unprecedented strategic traction, policy impetus and development support."

The relevant person in charge of Santai County said, “In 2021, we will scientifically study and judge the 'time' and 'trend' of economic work, and closely follow the decisions and deployments of the Party Central Committee and the Provincial Party Committee. All work reflects the characteristics of the times, grasps the regularity, and boast creativity. It enables us to firmly grasp the initiative and seize development opportunities."
Go ahead, Work Hard, and Embark on a New Journey
"A thick answer sheet will not fall from the sky. It must be achieved by hard work." The participants agreed.
The way forward is to climb the hill. How to overcome the problem? The key lies in implementation.
Implementation means not only implementing the decisions and deployment of the central and provincial party committees in Mianyang, but also turning the "mission book" of the Municipal Party Committee and government into "construction drawings."
The word "practical" should be the priority for work, and the word "do" should be implemented first. The relevant person in charge of the Municipal Transportation Bureau revealed that the city is actively planning to launch a new round of transportation construction battles, and will coordinate the preparation and implementation of the transportation infrastructure smooth action plan, the "Mianyang "14th Five-Year" Comprehensive Transportation Development Plan" and "Three Blueprints" of the transportation department for the implementation plan of the strong city.

"We will adhere to the high-start plan, closely follow the development goals of the new science and technology city, and create a green ecology, industry-city integration.

Increase self pressure, jump and touch high. "We will build a strong cultural city and a strong tourism city in the west." The relevant person in charge of the Municipal Bureau of Culture, Broadcasting and Tourism is full of energy. "During the '14th Five-Year Plan' period, we will build our city into a socialist core value that is widely practiced, and cultural undertakings are prosperous. The western cultural highlands and important western tourist destinations, where the cultural and tourism industry is deeply integrated, will accelerate the realization of a significant improvement in the four aspects of cultural influence, tourism attractiveness, cultural tourism supply and cultural tourism industry competitiveness."
The blueprint is spreading, the consensus is gathering, and the passion is surging.
Fight hard and then set off. As the first year of the "14th Five-Year Plan" and the beginning of a new journey of socialist modernization, Mianyang will hold the bottom line, keep pace with the times, strive for the first place, and create a new situation in economic and social development with a high-spirited attitude.
