(V) People's Livelihood and Welfare Results.
Financial expenditure on the well-being of the district's people aggregated to RMB 17.17 billion, up 84.3% over last year. We completed 40 projects for improving the well-being of the people during the year. We saw the reemployment of more than 10,000 formerly unemployed registered permanent residents of Shenzhen, and we also saw the number of zero-employment families return to zero. We donated RMB 240 million in housing subsidies to skilled citizens, and established 3,200 social security houses. The Chaguang Project became the first shantytown renovation project in the city. Complete coverage of community service centers was achieved. We established 2 new Senior Citizen Day Care Centers and 3 new Senior Citizen Canteens.

(VI) Government construction results.
We carried out the special education activity 'Be strict in cultivating one's moral character, preventing the abuse of power and disciplining oneself, and be steady in planning matters, starting undertakings and conducting oneself' to promote the transformation of the Government's functions and work style. We conscientiously carried out the 'Eight Rules' of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee, and comprehensively carried forward a special campaign against 'formalism, bureaucracy, hedonism and extravagance'. We conducted surveys both openly and secretly, remained firmly committed to supervision and accountability, enhanced accounting and auditing supervision, and strictly controlled the three public consumptions. We pushed forward party conduct and clean Government construction and anti-corruption campaigns, and severely punished illegal activities and discipline violations. We regularly reported our work to the Standing Committee of the Nanshan District People's Congress and the Nanshan District Committee of the CPPCC. We carried out the reporting of our work to the public by the head of every Government department, and let them accept supervision from all sectors of society. We conscientiously implemented resolutions made by the People's Congress, and carried out 202 proposals from representatives of People's Congresses at the city and district levels, and 155 proposals from members of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC). We accepted 29 administrative reconsideration cases and completed 100% of them. We formulated, modified and abolished 4 normative documents. We completed the legal popularization task of the 'Sixth Five Year Plan', achieved the complete coverage of 'one community, one legal consultant', and thereby won the title of National Governance under the Law Community Construction Demonstration Unit. District leaders offered point-to-point services to 300 enterprises, solving many of their problems. We established 10 new employee canteens to further relieve dining difficulties in the Hi-tech Zone. In addition, we obtained new results in our work in such areas as property, family planning, disabled federations, emergency response, relations with Taiwan, overseas Chinese affairs, and Government office affairs.
Last August, the main new leaders of the Party and Government came to work in Nanshan, and received the relay baton of the district's development. Under the firm leadership of the CPC Shenzhen Municipal Committee, the Shenzhen Municipal Government, and the CPC Nanshan District Committee, the leaders of the District Government did their best to implement the blueprints, with an emphasis placed on the following seven aspects. First, win several tough battles. Under the great support of the CPC Shenzhen Municipal Committee and the Shenzhen Municipal Government, the CPC Nanshan District Committee made comprehensive plans and gave instructions for the front line, and members of the District Government went to the front line and intensively pushed those plans forward. We successfully shut down the oil and gas reservoir at Dong Jiao Tou, eliminating a major safety hazard that has long posed a threat to Nantou Peninsula. We actively sought support from the military and enterprises along the western section of the Coastal Recreation Zone, successfully settled the dispute over the historical abandoned land, overcame other obstacles and started the construction of the project. Second, make the '13th Five-Year Plan' a high starting point. In 2015, we continued to make big plans, lay foundations, address shortcomings and seek long term interests. We consulted with the people and brainstormed ideas. As a result, we formulated the Nanshan '13th Five-Year Plan' Summary and submitted it to this session of the People's Congress for consideration. Third, solve Nanshan's transportation problems. In 2015, the construction of the south extension of Line No. 5 and the west extension of Line No. 9 was commenced, the Nanhai Road sub-line of Line No. 9 was approved, and Lines No. 12, 13 and 15 were included in the municipal subway phase IV plans. In addition, a batch of major traffic projects were accelerated. Fourth, fight for the economic development target throughout the year. In 2015, we withstood the pressure of the economic downturn and took a lot of measures, including providing enterprise services and boosting the growth of foreign trade. We pushed the economy to grow quarter by quarter. We utilized idle financial funds and established an industry development and investment guiding fund with an amount of RMB 2 billion. We also purchased a number of industrial premises to reserve development space for strategic emerging industries and enterprise headquarters. Fifth, identify and eliminate hidden safety hazards. We identified 116 hidden hazards concerning geological disasters and dangerously dilapidated buildings. We also addressed the safety concerns of the Bu Jiuwo and Tanglang Mountain waste landfill sites, shut down the liquid ammonia reservoir at Fisherman's Wharf, and demolished the dangerous ZTE Building No. 3 to safeguard the lives and property of the people. Sixth, push ahead the small things for the well-being of the people. We encouraged the residents in the communities and organizations of society to participate widely in local activities. We simplified the handling process and expanded the coverage, carrying out 323 projects with a total expenditure of RMB 20 million. Seventh, urge the Government to improve quality and efficiency. We pushed ahead with Government investment projects and purchase work reform, and issued the Agency System Management Measures to further shorten the approval time, optimize the work procedure and effectively prevent corruption risks.
In 2015, we strived to achieve the targets of the whole year, and draw the '12th Five-Year Plan' to a successful conclusion. In the last five years, we have used innovation to drive the transformation of industries, urban areas and society, achieved improvements in both economic scale and quality, continuously improved the lives of the people, and attained an ever-changing urban environment and a harmonious and stable society, which lays a solid foundation for the development of the '13th Five-Year Plan'.
Every representative of the People's Congress and member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) has always earnestly performed their duties, given advice and made significant contributions to the development of the various undertakings of Nanshan. Many excellent entrepreneurs have forged ahead with enthusiasm, creating a great deal of wealth for society. A vast number of people are coming to Shenzhen to innovate, establishing start-up businesses with passion. They bring vitality to our district and our city. Many teaching and administration staff, doctors and nurses, athletes, artists, workers and cadres in different fields work diligently at their positions, making great contributions to the development of Nanshan with quiet dedication. In recent years, the construction of railways and major zones has brought inconvenience to the lives and transportation of the people, but everyone has given us full understanding and support. Here, on behalf of Nanshan District People’s Government, I would like to extend my lofty respect and heartfelt thanks to the cadres and people of the district, representatives of the People's Congress, members of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), democratic parties, associations in industry and commerce, persons without party affiliation, people's organizations, units, troops, armed police, public security officers, people from all circles of society, and international friends who care about and support the development of Nanshan District.
At the same time, we should realize that many problems remain in the development of Nanshan. First, our production capacity relocation was too fast. A scarcity of land and limited room for industry development led to lingering high operating costs for enterprises. The factor costs increased too quickly, and the manufacturing industry faced mounting pressure to relocate production capacity. Second, the attraction of the district to skilled workers has declined, while such living costs as housing have remained high. We currently have a shortage of leading innovation talents and technical talents. Our talent structure need to be optimized. Third, our urban functions are lagging far behind. The development of the north district was relatively backward. The disparities between the development of the south and north districts remain prominent. Traffic congestion has become increasingly worse, and the river and sea areas are in desperate need of treatment. Fourth, the well-being of the people is underdeveloped. High quality study opportunities are insufficient. Culture and sports facilities are inadequate. Endowment services have just started. The problem of it 'being difficult to see a doctor' is still prominent. Fifth, urban management needs to be improved. The level of delicacy management is too low. The city's appearance and environment maintenance is not in place. The safety supervision and hidden danger renovation workload is too great. Sixth, Government construction needs to be enhanced. A minority of cadres have not adapted to the New Normal. Their work efficiency and enthusiasm should be improved. Clean government and work-style construction should be strengthened. We must take effective measures to solve such problems.
Main Approaches to Urban Center Construction During the '13th
Five-Year Plan' Period
The '13th Five-Year Plan' period is a crucial phase for our country to build a well-off society, and an important strategic opportunity period for Nanshan to make great achievements. At the beginning of the '13th Five-Year Plan', the CPC Nanshan District Committee sized up the opportunities and formulated a plan to build Nanshan into the 'Double Center' of Shenzhen. Nanshan will accelerate the formation of its comprehensive functions in the fields of economy, technology, culture and international communication that an urban center should have, and build itself into an international innovative coastal urban center that is great for living and working. This is the new mission and target of Nanshan, the new vision and hope of all the people of the district, and the new position and mission for the development of Nanshan conferred upon us by the Municipal Party Committee and Municipal Government!
The urban center is the core area of a city's structure and an important part of its urban functions, and it has a strong influence and driving force. Surveying the urban centers of such world-famous cities as New York, London, Singapore and Hong Kong, we find that they are all located in coastal areas, boast evident geographical advantages and possess important transportation hub functions and resource allocation abilities. In the aspect of economy, they all have modern industrial systems at their cores. There is a high concentration of international and regional headquarters in such cities. They have an evident post-industrial economic structure and important economic functions. In respect of innovation, scientific and technological achievements have a great influence in such cities. They are strong in self-owned innovation, and play an important and dominant role in the global value network in terms of generating added value. In the aspect of international influence, they have distinctive cultural characteristics, hold many international communication activities, and have an open, diversified international atmosphere and world first-class urban landscape.
To build an international innovative coastal urban center that is great for living and working, Nanshan should comply with the rules of the construction of an urban center, the development trend of the era, and the fervent hopes of all the people in the district.
By emancipating the mind and carrying out solid work, we will strive to build this infrastructure in five years, let it take shape in ten years, and complete it in 15 years. To this end, we will highlight the four center functions, grasp the three main qualities, and realize a great environment for living and working.
Highlighting the four center functions: we will highlight the four functions of an economy center, technology center, cultural center and international communications center. The urban area will be powerful due to its economy, advanced due to its technology, splendid due to its culture, and exuberant due to its international communication.
Highlighting the economy center function and consolidating the economic capacity. We will implement the double-drive strategy of 'technological innovation plus headquarters economy'. We will turn Nanshan into a place of the origin of innovation in emerging industries, and an international financial innovation center, modern service industry center and international hub in order to form double drivers for the economic development of the bay area. We will help 2-3 local enterprises to enter the World Top 500, enhance the core competitiveness of enterprises, and become the benchmarks of the upgraded version of China's economy.
Highlighting the technology center function and stimulating great innovation power. We will aim at the world's new technology development frontiers and national major strategies, attract innovation enterprises, innovation elements and innovation talents at home and abroad, make efforts to develop internationally advanced core technologies, build an international entrepreneur center, an innovative talent highland, a comprehensive innovation ecosystem demonstration zone and a technology innovation core zone, and form the internationally renowned 'silicon valley' of Shenzhen.
Highlighting the culture center function and creating a strong cultural atmosphere. We will keep the spirit of 'Empty words jeopardize national interests, hard work rejuvenates the nation' alive across the generations, promoting Nanshan's innovation and entrepreneurship culture of 'daring to be the pioneer'. We will integrate Chinese and western culture, cultivate civilized practices and make our culture industry stronger. We will push forward the balanced development of high-quality education, build a variety of high-end sports and culture facilities, and hold a roster of cultural and sports activities with international influence, building a pioneering cultural urban district with global vision and Chinese style.
Highlighting the international communication center function and displaying the unique charm of the bay area. We will participate in such national strategies such as 'One Belt and One Road', the construction of the free trade zone, and Shenzhen-Hong Kong cooperation. We will explore systems and mechanisms in line with the condition of the country and international practices, further optimize a law-based and internationalized business environment, deepen cultural communication and cooperation, speed up the complementary development of industries, facilitate the elements to flow in an orderly manner, effectively allocate resources, deeply integrate the market, and build an internationally first-class bay area city.
Grasping the three main qualities: as an international and innovative coastal district, Nanshan's three main qualities will differentiate it from other urban centers.
Being self-aware internally and externally and pushing forward internationalization. Adjacent to Hong Kong and Macau, with its back against the Pearl River Delta and an international airport, and located in the main Asia-Pacific channel, Nanshan is poised to internationalize itself. We will cater for the needs of the agglomeration of international elements, comply with international practices, build more international communities, schools and hospitals, build an internationalized commercial and living environment, and attract more international talents, international companies, and international organizations. We will actively hold the Fortune Global Forum, 'One Belt and One Road' International Music Festival, International Cruise Home Port Tourism Festival and other high-end international activities, and become an urban district of Shenzhen with unmatched international style. We will push ahead the planning, design and construction of various kinds of facilities in the urban area that will not become outdated even in 100 years, making every newly-erected building become solid poetry, three-dimensional painting, and frozen music.
Focusing on both quality and efficiency and promoting innovation development. Innovation is the root and soul of Nanshan and the major driver of the district's future development. We will closely combine technological innovation with systems innovation, let enterprises become the main body of innovation, and let the market hold the power to allocate innovation resources. We will closely combine innovation and industry development, attract high-end intelligent manufacturing and innovative enterprise headquarters to congregate, develop innovative new finance and cross-border E-commerce, and create new industries through cross-field integration. We will closely combine innovation and city development, use innovation to push ahead various kinds of reform in urban management, push forward smart city construction, use big data to innovate new urban management methods, and practically achieve the philosophy of 'technology makes life better'.
Integrating form and spirit and building a marina bay area. Located on Shenzhen Bay and Qianhai Bay, Nanshan boasts 41 km of winding coastline and possesses the unique natural endowments of the mountain, the river, the lake and the sea. We will turn the Houhai-Shekou-Qianhai coastline into a sightseeing leisure zone and a golden industry strip. We will treat the coastline as Nanshan's emotional memory and an important carrier for unfolding its charm, and put the beautiful mountain, sea and scenery into the construction of the urban center. We will optimize the spatial layout of the bay area economy, build the industrial clusters of the bay area economy, and enhance the innovative power of the bay area economy. We will better use the core function of Nanshan in the big bay area of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau, and turn it into Shenzhen's important portal of the maritime silk route in the 21st century.
Realizing a great living and working environment: a great living and working environment represents our desire for a better life in the future. After thirty years of development, our urban area has grown bigger, taller and more beautiful. However, our urban infrastructure, public service standards and governance ability have not completely met the fast development demands of the urban area. Such urban diseases as environmental pollution, traffic congestion and potential safety hazards have become increasingly prominent. If such problems cannot be solved for a long time, they can turn into social and livelihood problems that are detrimental to the living and working environment. Therefore, we should adhere to the philosophy of 'people-oriented development', and the 'problem-oriented' way of thinking, do our best to solve our various kinds of urban disease, quicken the pace of improving the lives of the people, and strive to achieve a harmonious environment for living and working.
The heart of a city is its people, and building the urban center is closely related to the lives of the people. We hope that after five years, ten years and more than a dozen years of unremitting efforts, the lives of Nanshan people will be like this: wandering around Shenzhen Bay, watching the autumn river sharing a scenic hue with the vast sky; cycling along the banks of the Dashahe River, enjoying success in both innovation and entrepreneurship; using international technology to create new villages, merging three districts to compose a legend; and witnessing the great success of the Qianhai Shekou Free Trade Zone, shaping a time-honored example. We hope that the Nanshan of the future is a district with convenient transportation, open and inclusive culture, high-quality and balanced education, advanced medical care, flourishing businesses, and a comfortable and beautiful environment. Let development become more human, and let the people feel substantially happier. We will achieve our aim that the Government should govern the city for the people, but not govern the people for the city!
