On the morning of December 18th, the Information Office of the Provincial Government held a press conference on “Zhejiang’s Major Achievements in Building a Moderately Prosperous Society at a High-Level” in Hangzhou. This press conference was a special session on Quzhou’s accomplishments in “Building a Well-off Society at a High-Level” as to the projects of building itself into a hub city among four provinces(Zhejiang, Anhui, Jiangxi as well as Fujian) as well as becoming the most beautiful garden city in Zhejiang. Tang Feifan, deputy secretary of Quzhou Municipal Party Committee and Mayor, made a keynote speech. And later, together with Qian Weigang, member of Quzhou Municipal Party Committee and Director of the Publicity Department, they made responses to questions from reporters.

Mr. Tang Feifan remarked that Quzhou is among the first batch of innovation bases for practicing the concept of "Green mountains and clear water are equal to mountains of gold and silver”. In the last five years, under the guidance of President Xi Jinping’s thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics for a new era, we, bearing President Xi’s visions and considerations for Quzhou deep in mind have closely stuck to the strategy of “making full use of eight advantages and implementing eight major measures”; The improvement of transportation and traffic, urban empowerment, and industry innovation have been carried out on a full scale. Moreover, Great progress has been achieved in the projects of building Quzhou into a hub city among four provinces(Zhejiang, Anhui, Jiangxi as well as Fujian) as well as transforming Quzhou into the most beautiful garden city in Zhejiang.

Mr. Tang Feifan presented profound changes and structural transformations in Quzhou since the start of 13th Five-Year Plan as follows. First, a new path has been explored in ecological development. With the project of transforming Quzhou into a garden city as the objective, we have set up high standards in environmental protection and promoted the transformation of the "two mountains" from a high starting point. The ecological protective screen will be built stronger and we will make full use of ecological resources to improve people’s living standards. Second, great and new improvements have been made in transportation. Great efforts have been made in building Quzhou into a modern comprehensive transportation city by making full use of its highway, railway, airline and waterway transportation. And we hope to turn our geographical advantages into economic advantages. The third is that new momentum has been injected into industrial innovation. We have been vigorously advancing traditional industries’ “overtaking on a curve” and emerging industries’ “lane changing and a possible overtaking”, accelerating the flourishing of advanced manufacturing clusters, and the green economy industry and the smart economy industry. Fourth, a new pattern have been designed in urban empowerment. The government proposed a tripartite structure for the planning of urban development: the core circle, the high-speed rail new city, and the ancient city of Confucius lineage in South as three centers. Furthermore, a new type of people-oriented urbanization have been implemented in great steps. Now as a new high-speed railway city, Quzhou presents a brand new look. The urban primary index of downtown area has increased significantly. Fifth, major reforms such as the establishment of national innovation base for practicing the concept of "two mountains" and the pilot zones for green finance reform and innovations, and the "the one-stop administrative service" reform, government’s digital transformation reform all have achieved positive result.  In terms of business environment evaluation, Quzhou ranks the top in the country. Sixth, new achievements have been made in improving people’s livelihood as the government has fully immersed the concept of "shared development" in its policy-making. And this year, Quzhou has successfully obtained the title of national civilized city. In Quzhou, profound changes have taken place and substantial benefits have been delivered to the general public.

"Now, the term 'burgeoning' is often used to describe Quzhou. People feel that the city is becoming better and more beautiful, and it has gradually opened up a path of high-quality development." Mr. Tang Feifan said, in this era, there are various issues we are incumbent to perform our duties and to address. And the public will be the one to review our performance. In the new era, we embark on a new journey. Quzhou, by thoroughly following the spirit of the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the Eighth Plenary Session of the 14th Provincial Party Committee, will forge ahead and keep promoting the project of building itself into a hub city among four provinces(Zhejiang, Anhui, Jiangxi and Fujian) as well as in making Quzhou the most beautiful garden city in Zhejiang. We will put the strategy of “making full use of eight advantages and implementing eight major measures” into practice and strive to do the best.
