Secondly, elevate stance to strive to present the strength of CPPCC. The key to well presenting the strength of CPPCC in the gap year of “Developing Year by Year and Achieving Great Changes within Three Years” of Jing’an District is to consistently uphold the lofty ambition of communists so as to make the suggestions more wonderful. In addition, it is required to well manage the “Seeing the Change of Jing’an, Discussing the Development of Jing’an and Promoting the Leap of Jing’an” series of theme activities and the “Taking Abroad View to the Whole City and Laying Emphasis on Jing’an District” series of symposia, well conduct the “Inheritance, Protection, Development and Utilization of Good Historical Resources” project assigned by CPC Jing’an District Committee and the “Jing’an Culture” project in the cultural brands of Shanghai by centering on the building of four brands of “Made in Shanghai, Shopping in Shanghai, Service of Shanghai and Shanghai Culture” and the commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening-up policy, based on the work requirements of CPC Shanghai Municipal Committee and CPC Jing’an District Committee, to ensure that the work of CPPCC Jing’an District Committee concerning social conditions and public opinions remains its leading place in the assessment ranking of the whole city on the new staring point after returning to zero. Thirdly, fully perform the duties and truly work as a good example of CPPCC committees. The Standing Committee of CPPCC Jing’an District Committee should continue to deepen and put into practice the system of members of Standing Committee contacting members of CPPCC Jing’an District Committee, and appraise and elect excellent groups at the end of the year. It is hoped that more excellent groups can spring up to better take on the “excellent” ecological environment of Jing’an District CPPCC.
