As for the private economy, lets see what dry goods these meetings have and what the provincial Party committee secretaries have said.
Liu Jiayi: judging whether the policy is good or not depends on whether the entrepreneur smiles or not.
On November 2nd, Liu Jiayi, Secretary of the Shandong provincial Party committee, hosted a forum of private entrepreneurs. Similar to the Symposium on private enterprises held by the central government, the Shandong Provincial Committee also invited many entrepreneurs to attend and make speeches.
Zheng Zhijun noticed that Liu Jiayi mainly talked about three aspects at the symposium: General Secretary Xi Jinpings important speech at the Symposium on private enterprises, what private economy means to Shandong, and how to support private economy in the future.
Concerning the seminar on private enterprises held in Beijing on November 1, Liu Jiayi pointed out that General Secretary Xi Jinping had recently made a series of important remarks on private economy, especially in his important speech at the seminar on private enterprises. He emphasized once again that two are unshakable and three remain unchanged, thus setting the tone for private economy. To private entrepreneurs to eat areassuring pill, conveying more precious confidence than gold, private economic development ushered in another spring of great development.
What does private economy mean to Shandong? Liu Jiayi said that private economy was, is and will certainly be an irreplaceable important force in Shandongs development. Private entrepreneurs were, are and will be indispensable treasures for Shandongs development.
As a matter of fact, the Secretary of the provincial Party committee is very real. Data show that the total private economy in Shandong ranks third in the country, second only to Guangdong and Jiangsu. In 2017, the private economy in Shandong accounted for 50.8% of the total GDP in the province. After the reform and opening up, many famous private enterprises and private entrepreneurs emerged in Shandong. In September this year, the Shandong Federation of Industry and Commerce, the Shandong Economic and Information Commission and other seven departments jointly issued the list of the top 100 private enterprises in Shandong Province in 2018. The well-known Shandong Luhua Group Co., Ltd. and Qilu Pharmaceutical Group Co., Ltd. are on the list. Previously, the National Federation of Industry and Commerce issued a list of 100 outstanding private entrepreneurs in the past 40 years of reform and opening up. Four private entrepreneurs from Shandong were selected, namely Niu Yishun, Li Xiangping, Qiu Yafu and Zhang Jianhong.
Referring to the future measures for private enterprises and private economy, Liu Jiayi said that in order to support the development of private economy, more perceptible, temperature-sensitive and effective policies should be introduced to enhance the executive power of policies, refine and materialize the operation, and break the barriers of rolling curtain door, glass door and revolving door. For a better business environment, we should thoroughly study and grasp the development aspirations of private entrepreneurs, make every effort to release control clothing and run well once reform, and bring support and guidance to private enterprises into the scope of cadre assessment.
It is worth noting that when it comes to policy making, Liu Jiayi said, Whether the policy is good or not depends on whether the entrepreneurs face is smiling or not. If he laughs brilliantly, the policy is good; if he laughs poorly, it means that the policy is general; if he does not laugh, it means that the policy is useless. In the future, the formulation of policies concerning enterprises must fully solicit the opinions of enterprises, and some policies should be formulated with the participation of enterprise personnel.
Zheng noted that before the central forum, Liu Jiayi also studied a private enterprise. On October 26, Liu Jiayi came to Luhua Group to inspect the production line of the enterprise and understand the product variety, output and price. Liu Jiayi said that we should encourage and support the development of private economy, implement the relevant policies already promulgated in Shandong Province, and solve problems and do practical things for enterprises.
