Zhu Bixin, China Chengtong’s Secretary of the CPC Committee and Chairman, delivered a report themed Emancipating the Minds and Deepening Reform to Achieve China Chengtong’s High-Quality Development. Zhu Bixin summarised the Group’s work since it has been nominated as the pilot enterprise for state-owned capital operation, meticulously analysed the current domestic and foreign situation, and put forward requirements for the Group’s work in 2020.
Zhu Bixin pointed out that since the Group has been nominated as the pilot enterprise for state-owned capital operation, it has stuck to the Party’s leadership, implemented the national strategy, and established management structure and operational mechanism that facilitate capital operation. The Group has adapted its managing system in line with the requirement of ‘managing capital’, promoted the structural reform and upgrading, and properly dealt with the tough challenge of ‘handling zombie enterprises and helping financially-suffering enterprises’. All these measures have contributed to China Chengtong’s achievements in the process of becoming a first-class state-owned capital operating company. With regard to China Chengtong’s work in 2020, Zhu Bixin underlined that the Group should systematically summarise experience gained from the pilot work, work hard on emancipating the minds and innovation-driven development, on streamlining the business structure and optimizing inventory resources’ integration, and on strengthening the Party’s leadership, consolidating the headquarters’ construction and improving the operational skills. China Chengtong must focus on the following six aspects in 2020. First, China Chengtong must strengthen the Party’s leadership and construction work, and achieve the Group’s quality-driven development through enhanced Party construction work. Second, China Chengtong must implement requirements put forward by SASAC’s Inspection Group and improve the Group’s overall performance accordingly. Third, China Chengtong should emancipate its minds and make breakthroughs in systematic reform. Fourth, China Chengtong should optimise the current operational structure. Fifth, China Chengtong should build a strong headquarters that is professional in capital operation. Last but not least, China Chengtong should continue improving its risk awareness, and prevent and resolve major risks.

Li pointed out that in the past year, the Group has continued to deepen the pilot reform and gained more remarkable achievements. By giving full play to its platform advantage, the Group has played a more prominent role in serving the reform of state-owned assets and state-owned enterprises (SOEs). The Group has also seen improvement in both the quality and efficiency of its development thanks to the implementation of new concept for development, and registered significant advancement in business operation owing to the strengthened overall leadership of the Party. Li Hongfeng pointed out that in 2020, China Chengtong should focus its work on the following six facets: first, deepening the pilot reform of the operating company to achieve landmark results of the reform of state-owned assets and state-owned enterprises; second, improving quality and efficiency to consolidate the basis for the Group’s high-quality development; third, focusing on the compiling of the Group’s 14th Five-Year Strategic Plan and making strategy’s leading role more prominent; fourth, preventing and controlling risks to contribute to the Group’s high-quality development; fifth, strengthening the overall leadership of the Party to ensure the Group’s achievement of high-quality development through high-quality Party building work; sixth, improving the Group’s political awareness and doing a good job in meeting improvement requirements set by SASAC’s inspection Group.

The year 2020 is also the key year to achieve the country’s first Centennial Goal, to lay a solid foundation for the development of the 14th Five-Year Plan and to prepare for the realisation of the country’s second Centennial Goal.
