Mr. Zhang Dehua pointed out that centralized construction work was a concrete action to implement the “Six Aspects Stand Out Among the Whole Province” requested by the CPC Yunnan Provincial Committee, and was also an important measure to grasp projects, expand investment, and stabilize growth. At present and in the coming period, Yuxi Municipality was still in the stage of “coordinated promotion and joint efforts” between innovation-driven and investment-driven. We should not only emphasize the important engine of innovation-driven, but also attach importance to the practical means of investment-driven as before. We should continue to expand effective investment, pure into strong drive for the future development and lay a good foundation for innovation drive. Departments at all levels should always take enterprising attitude, work hard, do well in the allocation of construction forces and various elements, coordinate & solve the difficulties and problems in project construction, create a good environment and atmosphere for project construction, and ensure the successful completion of the annual investment and construction tasks. All project construction units and supervision units should carefully organize, seize the prime construction period, go all out to grasp the progress, wholeheartedly grasp the management, focus on quality, and urge the projects to be built early, put into use early, and achieve results early and make greater contributions to realize high quality and frog-leap-forward development in Yuxi.
