The year 2008 was truly eventful. Our country's economic and social development withstood severe challenges and tests that were rarely seen before.

这些成就,标志着我们在中国特色社会主义道路上,迈出新的坚实步伐,极大地增强了全国各族人民战胜困难的勇气和力量,必将激励我们在新的历史征程上继续奋勇前进。一年来,我们做了以下主要工作:
These achievements signify that we have taken new and solid steps along the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics. They have greatly fortified the courage and strength of the people of all our ethnic groups to surmount difficulties and will definitely encourage us to bravely forge ahead on the new historical course. Last year, we accomplished the following important work:

(一)及时果断调整宏观经济政策,全力保持经济平稳较快发展
1. Making timely and resolute adjustments to macroeconomic policies and doing everything possible to maintain steady and rapid economic development

我们正确把握宏观调控的方向、重点、力度和节奏,采取一系列促进经济平稳较快发展的政策措施,在复杂多变的形势下,积极应对国际金融危机的严重冲击,努力增强调控的预见性、针对性和有效性。年中,在国际能源和粮食价格处于高位、世界经济增长放缓的情况下,针对沿海地区出现出口和经济增速下滑苗头,及时把宏观调控的首要任务调整为保持经济平稳较快发展,控制物价过快上涨,并采取了一些有针对性的财税金融措施。

9月份后,国际经济形势急转直下,对我国的不利影响明显加重,我们又果断地把宏观调控的着力点转到防止经济增速过快下滑上来,实施积极的财政政策和适度宽松的货币政策。三次提高出口退税率,五次下调金融机构存贷款基准利率,四次下调存款准备金率,暂免储蓄存款利息个人所得税,下调证券交易印花税,降低住房交易税费,加大对中小企业信贷支持。按照出手要快、出拳要重、措施要准、工作要实的要求,迅速推出进一步扩大内需、促进经济增长的十项措施,争分夺秒地加以落实;接连出台金融支持经济发展、促进轻纺工业健康发展、促进房地产市场健康发展、搞活流通扩大消费和保持对外贸易稳定增长、稳定就业等政策措施,加快制定重点产业调整振兴规划。

这些措施对缓解经济运行中的突出矛盾、增强信心、稳定预期、保持经济平稳较快发展,发挥了至关重要的作用。
We maintained the right direction, focus, intensity and pace of macro control, and adopted a series of policies and measures to promote steady and rapid economic development. In a complex and volatile situation, we actively responded to the severe impact of the global financial crisis and worked hard to make our macro control more proactive, targeted and effective. In the middle of the year, when energy and grain prices on the international market were high, world economic growth slowed, and exports from and economic growth in China's coastal regions began to decline, we promptly shifted the priority of macro control to maintaining steady and rapid economic development and controlling price hikes, and adopted relevant fiscal, taxation and financial measures. In September, the international economic situation started to deteriorate sharply and its negative impact became increasingly felt in China. We again resolutely shifted the focus of macro control to preventing economic growth from slowing down too quickly. We implemented a proactive fiscal policy and a moderately easy monetary policy. We raised export rebate rates three times, lowered the benchmark interest rates on savings and loans for financial institutions on five occasions, reduced required reserve ratios four times, suspended the individual income tax on interest earnings from savings, reduced securities transaction stamp tax rates, cut taxes and fees on housing transactions, and increased credit support to small and medium-sized enterprises. In accordance with the requirement that we act fast, be forceful, take targeted measures and stress implementation, we promptly introduced ten measures to further boost domestic demand and promote economic growth, and implemented them without delay. We adopted a succession of policies and measures to encourage financial institutions to support economic development, promote sound development of the textile and other light industries and the real estate market, expand consumption by improving distribution, maintain steady growth in foreign trade, and keep the employment situation stable. At the same time, we stepped up efforts to formulate plans for restructuring and revitalizing key industries. Together, these measures have played a crucial role in alleviating serious problems affecting economic performance, enhancing confidence, stabilizing expectations and maintaining steady and rapid economic development.

毫不放松地加强三农工作。全年中央财政用于三农的投入5955亿元,比上年增加1637亿元,增长37.9%,其中粮食直补、农资综合补贴、良种补贴、农机具购置补贴资金达1030亿元,比上年增长一倍。三次较大幅度提高粮食最低收购价,提价幅度超过20%。实施主要农产品临时收储政策。加强耕地保护和农田水利建设,提高农业综合生产能力。扶持生猪、油料、奶业发展。这些政策措施在保护和调动农民积极性、保障重要农产品供给、增加农民收入方面发挥了重要作用,为稳定经济社会发展全局提供了有力支撑。
We continued to strengthen our work related to agriculture, rural areas and farmers without any letup. Central government budgetary spending on agriculture, rural areas and farmers was 595.5 billion yuan for the whole year, a year-on-year increase of 163.7 billion yuan or 37.9%. This included 103 billion yuan, twice the figure for the previous year, in direct subsidies to grain producers, general subsidies for agricultural production supplies, and subsidies for superior crop varieties and the purchase of agricultural machinery and tools. We significantly raised minimum grain purchase prices three times, with the total increase exceeding 20%. We implemented a temporary policy for purchasing and stockpiling major agricultural products. We intensified the protection of arable land and the construction of agricultural water conservancy projects, and increased overall agricultural production capacity. We supported the production of hogs, oilseeds and dairy products. These policies and measures played an important role in maintaining and stimulating the enthusiasm of farmers, ensuring the supply of major farm products and increasing rural incomes, and provided strong support for maintaining overall stability in economic and social development.

坚定不移地推进自主创新和经济结构调整。实施16个国家重大科技专项。在信息、生物、环保等领域新建一批国家工程中心、重点实验室和企业技术中心。成功研发支线飞机、新能源汽车、高速铁路等一批关键技术和重大装备。中央财政科技投入1163亿元,增长16.4%。电信、航空等行业重组迈出重要步伐。

继续淘汰落后产能,全年关停小火电1669万千瓦,关闭小煤矿1054处。加大基础设施和基础产业投资力度,在能源、交通、水利等方面建成和开工一批重大项目。扎实推进区域发展总体战略,区域经济发展协调性增强。
We unswervingly promoted independent innovation and economic restructuring. We launched 16 major national science and technology projects, and established a number of new national engineering centers, key laboratories and enterprise technology centers in such fields as information technology, biotechnology and environmental protection. We successfully developed a number of key technologies and major equipment in the areas of regional aircraft, automobiles powered by new energy sources and high-speed railways. The central government invested 116.3 billion yuan in science and technology, an increase of 16.4%. Significant steps were taken in reorganization of the telecommunications and civil aviation industries. We continued to eliminate backward production facilities. Last year, we shut down small thermal power plants with a total capacity of 16.69 million kilowatts and closed 1,054 small coalmines. Investment in infrastructure and basic industries was increased, and a number of major projects in energy, transportation and water conservancy were completed or launched. Steady progress was made in implementing the master strategy for regional development, and economic development in different regions became better coordinated.

坚持不懈地推动节能减排和生态环境保护。中央财政安排423亿元资金,支持十大重点节能工程和环保设施等项目建设。全国新增城市污水日处理能力1149万吨,新增燃煤脱硫机组容量9712万千瓦。单位国内生产总值能耗比上年下降4.59%,化学需氧量、二氧化硫排放量分别减少4.42%5.95%

近三年累计,单位国内生产总值能耗下降10.08%,化学需氧量、二氧化硫排放量分别减少6.61%8.95%。巩固退耕还林还草成果,推进天然林、青海三江源等生态保护和建设工程。实施重点流域、区域水污染防治规划。发布了《中国应对气候变化的政策与行动》白皮书。
We steadfastly promoted energy conservation, emissions reduction and ecological and environmental protection. The central government allocated 42.3 billion yuan to support development of ten key energy conservation projects and environmental protection facilities. The daily sewage treatment capacity rose by an additional 11.49 million tons in urban areas, and desulfurization equipment was installed in coal-fired power plants with a total capacity of 97.12 million kilowatts. Energy consumption per unit of GDP fell by 4.59% from the previous year; chemical oxygen demand fell by 4.42%; and sulfur dioxide emissions fell by 5.95%. For the past three years combined, total energy consumption per unit of GDP dropped by 10.08%; chemical oxygen demand dropped by 6.61%; and sulfur dioxide emissions dropped by 8.95%. We built on the achievements in returning farmland to forests and restoring livestock pastures to grasslands, and carried out ecological conservation projects such as protecting virgin forests and developing the Sanjiangyuan Nature Reserve in Qinghai Province. We implemented the plan to prevent and control water pollution in major river valleys and regions and issued the white paper China's Policies and Actions for Addressing Climate Change.

(二)统筹经济社会发展,全面加强以改善民生为重点的社会建设
2. Balancing economic and social development and strengthening all aspects of social development with the focus on improving people's lives

Efforts were intensified to increase employment and improve the social safety net. We improved our policy to stimulate and expand employment by encouraging business startups, and enforced the minimum wage system. The coverage of all social security schemes continued to expand, with 17.53 million more urban workers subscribing to basic old-age insurance, 20.28 million more subscribing to basic medical insurance, and the unemployment, workers' compensation and maternity insurance steadily expanding to cover more workers. Pensions of enterprise retirees rose by 110 yuan per month per person. We launched trials to reform the basic old-age insurance system for employees of government-affiliated institutions. We actively explored ways to establish a new system of old-age insurance for rural residents and made steady progress in making social security available to rural migrant workers in urban areas and farmers whose land has been expropriated. We comprehensively improved the system of cost of living allowances for both urban and rural residents, and provided allowances to 66.19 million residents. We raised living allowances for low-income groups and university students in a timely fashion. Preferential treatment enjoyed by key entitled groups was increased substantially. We intensified efforts to develop low-income housing and renovate shantytowns, thus alleviating some of the housing difficulties of the low-income population. An additional of more than 48 million rural people gained access to safe drinking water.

促进教育公平取得新进展。全面实行城乡免费义务教育,对所有农村义务教育阶段学生免费提供教科书。提高中西部地区校舍维修标准,国家财政安排32.5亿元帮助解决北方农村中小学取暖问题。职业教育加快发展。国家助学制度进一步完善,中央财政投入223亿元,地方财政也加大投入,资助学生超过2000万人;向中等职业学校中来自城市经济困难家庭和农村的学生提供助学金,每人每年1500元,惠及90%的在校生。
Further progress was made in promoting fair education for all. Free compulsory education became available to all students, urban or rural, throughout the country, and all rural students receiving compulsory education obtained free textbooks. The standards for repairing and renovating school buildings in the central and western regions were raised, and the government allocated 3.25 billion yuan to provide heating to rural primary and secondary schools in the north. Development of vocational education was accelerated. The national financial aid system for students was further improved. The central government spent 22.3 billion yuan and local governments increased funding as well to assist more than 20 million students. Grants of 1,500 yuan per student per annum were given to secondary vocational school students from rural areas or needy urban families, benefiting 90% of the current student population in these vocational schools.

医药卫生改革发展稳步推进。参加新型农村合作医疗的人口8.14亿,参合率91.5%。城镇居民基本医疗保险试点城市由上年的88个增加到317个,参保人数增加7359万,总计达到1.17亿。城市社区卫生服务体系建设取得重大进展。农村计划生育家庭奖励扶助制度和少生快富工程实施范围继续扩大。
Steady progress was made in reform and development of the pharmaceutical and health care system. A total of 814 million people, accounting for 91.5% of the rural population, now benefit from the new type of rural cooperative medical care system. The number of selected cities participating in trials of the basic medical insurance system for urban residents increased from 88 to 317, and the number of participating individuals increased by 73.59 million to 117 million. Significant progress was made in developing a system of community-based health services in urban areas.

文化体育事业加快发展。公共文化基础设施建设得到加强,文化产业快速发展,文化体制改革不断深化。全力举办了有特色、高水平的北京奥运会、残奥会,实现了中华民族的百年梦想;中国运动员顽强拼搏,取得优异成绩,这极大地激发了全国人民的爱国热情,增强了民族凝聚力。
We accelerated the development of culture and sports. Public cultural infrastructure facilities were improved, the cultural industries developed rapidly, and reform of the cultural management system was constantly deepened. We mobilized all resources and hosted a distinctive and high-level Beijing Olympicsand Paralympics, thus fulfilling the century-old dream of the Chinese nation, and Chinese athletes competed hard and brave and scored excellent achievements in the Games. This greatly aroused the patriotism of all our people and strengthened the cohesiveness of our nation.

民主法制建设继续加强。基层民主制度进一步健全。依法行政深入推进。国务院提请全国人大常委会审议了社会保险法、防震减灾法等8件法律议案,制定或修订了30件行政法规。全面实施政府信息公开条例。加强社会治安防控体系建设,开展反分裂、反恐怖斗争,维护了国家安全和社会稳定。民族、宗教、侨务工作进一步加强。
We continued to strengthen democracy and the legal system. The system of local-level democracy was further improved. Significant progress was made in enhancing law-based government. Last year, the State Council submitted eight bills, including a draft of the Social Insurance Law and draft amendments to the Law on Protecting Against and Mitigating Earthquake Disasters, to the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress for deliberation. It also formulated or revised 30 administrative laws and regulations. The Regulations on Making Government Information Public was fully implemented.

The transformation of the Agricultural Bank of China and China Development Bank into joint stock companies proceeded smoothly. The new Law on Corporate Income Tax went into effect, and real estate taxes were unified for domestic and overseas-funded enterprises and Chinese and foreign individuals. After years of deliberation, reform in pricing, taxes and fees for refined petroleum products was smoothly introduced.

各位代表!
Fellow Deputies,

去年512日,我国发生震惊世界的汶川特大地震。在党中央、国务院坚强领导下,全国各族人民特别是灾区人民万众一心、众志成城,人民子弟兵舍生忘死、冲锋在前,展开了我国历史上救援速度最快、动员范围最广、投入力量最大的抗震救灾斗争。

我们坚持把抢救人的生命放在第一位,从废墟中抢救生还者8.4万人。迅速抢修基础设施,果断处置唐家山堰塞湖,避免严重次生灾害发生;全力开展防疫工作,实现了大灾之后无大疫。中央财政安排384亿元救灾款和740亿元恢复重建资金,迅速出台一系列支援灾区的政策措施。积极开展对口支援。社会各界踊跃捐助款物,广大香港同胞、澳门同胞、台湾同胞以及海外华侨华人奉献爱心,国际社会伸出援手,汇成了齐心协力抗击灾害的磅礴力量。这场艰苦卓绝的抗震救灾斗争,涌现出无数感天动地、可歌可泣的英雄事迹,充分展现了中国人民不屈不挠、自强不息的伟大民族精神,谱写了气壮山河的壮丽篇章。
A massive earthquake that shocked the world struck Wenchuan on May 12. Under the firm leadership of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, people of all ethnic groups in China, especially in the quake zone, worked as one and fought in unison against the earthquake disaster. The people's army rushed to the frontlines without thinking of their own safety. We launched an earthquake rescue and relief operation that accomplished its work faster, mobilized more personnel and committed more resources than ever before in China's history. We steadfastly gave top priority to saving people's lives. We pulled 84,000 survivors out of the rubble. We promptly repaired damaged infrastructure, and resolutely unblocked the Mount Tangjia quake lake to avert potential secondary disasters. We did our utmost to prevent an epidemic from occurring and ensured that there was no major outbreak of diseases after the deadly earthquake. The central government allocated 38.4 billion yuan for quake relief and 74 billion yuan for post-earthquake recovery and reconstruction. We promptly introduced a host of policies and measures to support the quake zone. We energetically organized one-to-one assistance to designated areas affected by the earthquake. People from all sectors of society in China made generous donations, both in cash and in kind; our compatriots in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan as well as overseas Chinese contributed generously to the disaster relief campaign; and the international community provided us with earthquake rescue and relief assistance. All this combined to forma boundless source of strength for the Chinese people to overcome the disaster. This hard struggle against the earthquake produced uncountable touching and brave exploits and fully demonstrated the great indomitable and unyielding spirit of the Chinese people, thus writing a heroic chapter in the history of the nation.

过去一年的成就来之不易。这是以胡锦涛同志为总书记的党中央统揽全局、正确领导的结果,是全党全军全国各族人民同心同德、团结奋斗的结果。在这里,我代表国务院,向全国各族人民,向各民主党派、各人民团体和各界人士,表示诚挚的感谢!向香港特别行政区同胞、澳门特别行政区同胞、台湾同胞和海外侨胞,表示诚挚的感谢!向关心和支持中国现代化建设的各国政府、国际组织和各国朋友,表示诚挚的感谢!
None of the achievements we made last year came easily. They were the result of overall planning and correct leadership of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Hu Jintao as General Secretary, as well as the concerted and strenuous efforts of the whole Party, the entire army and the people of all our ethnic groups. On behalf of the State Council, I hereby express our sincere gratitude to the people of all our ethnic groups and to the democratic parties, mass organizations and people from all sectors of society. I also express our sincere thanks to compatriots in the Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions and Taiwan and to overseas Chinese, as well as to foreign governments, international organizations and friends in other countries that take an interest in and support China's modernization drive.

在肯定成绩的同时,也要清醒地看到,我们正面临前所未有的困难和挑战。
While acknowledging our achievements, we must be clearly aware that we face unprecedented difficulties and challenges.

一是国际金融危机还在蔓延、仍未见底。国际市场需求继续萎缩,全球通货紧缩趋势明显,贸易保护主义抬头,外部经济环境更加严峻,不确定因素显著增多。
First, the global financial crisis continues to spread and get worse. Demand continues to shrink on international markets; the trend toward global deflation is obvious; and trade protectionism is resurging. The external economic environment has become more serious, and uncertainties have increased significantly.

二是受国际金融危机影响,经济增速持续下滑,已成为影响全局的主要矛盾。一些行业产能过剩,部分企业经营困难,就业形势十分严峻,财政减收增支因素增多,农业稳定发展、农民持续增收难度加大。
Second, continuous drop in economic growth rate due to the impact of the global financial crisis has become a major problem affecting the overall situation. This has resulted in excess production capacity in some industries, caused some enterprises to experience operating difficulties and exerted severe pressure on employment. Factors leading to decline in government revenues and increase in government expenditures have increased. It has become more difficult to maintain steady agricultural development and keep rural incomes growing.

三是长期制约我国经济健康发展的体制性、结构性矛盾依然存在,有的还很突出。消费需求不足,第三产业发展滞后,自主创新能力不强,能源资源消耗多,环境污染重,城乡、区域发展差距仍在扩大。
Third, institutional and structural problems that have long hindered healthy economic development still remain, and some of them are still prominent. Consumption demand is insufficient, and development of tertiary industries is sluggish. Our capacity for independent innovation is weak. Consumption of energy and other resources is high. Environmental pollution is serious. Disparities in development between urban and rural areas and between regions are widening.

四是一些涉及人民群众切身利益的问题没有根本缓解,社会保障、教育、医疗、收入分配、社会治安等方面存在不少亟待解决的问题。
Fourth, some problems affecting the vital interests of the people have not been fundamentally alleviated. There are still many problems demanding urgent solution in the areas of social security, education, health care, income distribution and public security.

五是市场秩序不规范,市场监管和执法不到位,社会诚信体系不健全。食品安全事件和安全生产重特大事故接连发生,给人民群众生命财产造成重大损失,教训十分深刻。
Fifth, order in the market is not well standardized; market oversight and law enforcement are not fully in place, and the social credit rating system is still in need of improvement. A number of serious and major incidents concerning food and workplace safety have occurred, which have inflicted serious loss of life and property on the people and taught us a sobering lesson.

我们一定要深刻认识国际国内经济形势的严峻性和复杂性,增强危机意识和忧患意识,充分利用有利条件,积极应对各种挑战,努力做好各项工作,绝不辜负人民的期望和重托。
We need to thoroughly appreciate how serious and complex the international and domestic economic situations are, be more mindful of potential perils and crises, fully exploit favorable conditions and actively respond to all challenges so that we can successfully accomplish all our tasks and prove worthy of the great expectations and trust conferred on us by the people.

二、2009年工作总体部署
II. General Plan for the Work in 2009
 

今年是实施十一五规划的关键之年,也是进入新世纪以来我国经济发展最为困难的一年,改革发展稳定的任务十分繁重。
This year is crucial for the implementation of the Eleventh Five-Year Plan. It will also be the most difficult year for China's economic development since the beginning of the 21st century. We face arduous tasks in promoting reform, development and stability.

综观国际国内形势,我国仍处于重要战略机遇期。挑战与机遇并存,困难与希望同在。我国经济社会发展的基本面和长期向好的趋势没有改变。我们完全有信心、有条件、有能力克服困难,战胜挑战。

我们的信心和力量,来自中央对形势的科学判断和准确把握;来自已经制定并实施的应对挑战、着眼长远的一系列政策措施;来自工业化、城镇化快速推进中的基础设施建设、产业结构和消费结构升级、环境保护、生态建设和社会事业发展等方面的巨大需求;来自充裕的资金、丰富的劳动力资源等要素支撑;来自运行稳健的金融体系、活力增强的各类企业和富于弹性的宏观调控政策;来自改革开放30年建立的物质、科技基础和体制条件;来自集中力量办大事的政治和制度优势、和谐安定的社会环境以及全国上下促进科学发展的积极性、创造性;来自中华民族坚忍不拔、发愤图强的伟大精神力量。

只要我们紧紧依靠党的领导和全国各族人民,就没有克服不了的困难,就一定能够把国际金融危机的不利影响降到最低程度,就一定能够推动经济社会又好又快发展。
An analysis of the overall international and domestic situations shows that China is still in an important period of strategic opportunities. Challenges and opportunities coexist, as do hardships and hopes. Neither the fundamentals of China's economic and social development nor its positive long-term trend has changed. We are fully confident that we will overcome difficulties and challenges, and we have the conditions and ability to do so. Our confidence and strength come from many sources: from the scientific judgment and correct grasp of the situation of the central leadership; from the policies and measures that have been formulated and implemented to respond to challenges and promote long-term development; from the huge demand generated by the development of infrastructure, the upgrading of the industrial structure and consumption patterns, environmental protection, and the development of the ecosystem and social programs in the rapid process of industrialization and urbanization; from the support of such factors as our ample capital and labor resources, our sound financial system in smooth operation, vigorous enterprises and flexible macro control policies; from our material, scientific and technological base and institutional conditions that have been created in the 30 years of reform and opening up; from our unique political and institutional advantages that enable us to mobilize resources to accomplish large undertakings, the stable, harmonious social environment we enjoy, and the enthusiasm and creativity of the whole nation from top to bottom to promote scientific development; and from the powerful spirit of the Chinese nation, which always works hard and persistently to make the country strong. As long as we closely follow the Party's leadership and firmly rely on the people of all our ethnic groups, we will be able to overcome any difficulties, minimize the adverse impact of the global financial crisis and promote sound and rapid economic and social development.

做好今年的政府工作,要高举中国特色社会主义伟大旗帜,以邓小平理论和三个代表重要思想为指导,深入贯彻落实科学发展观,把保持经济平稳较快发展作为经济工作的首要任务,加强和改善宏观调控,着力扩大国内需求特别是消费需求,着力转变发展方式、加快经济结构战略性调整,着力深化改革、提高对外开放水平,着力改善民生促进社会和谐,全面推进社会主义经济建设、政治建设、文化建设、社会建设以及生态文明建设。
To carry out the work of the government well this year, we must hold high the great banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics, take Deng Xiaoping Theory and the important thought of Three Represents as our guide, and thoroughly apply the Scientific Outlook on Development. We need to make ensuring steady and rapid economic development the main task of our economic work. We need to strengthen and improve macroeconomic control, vigorously expand domestic demand, particularly consumer demand, change the pattern of development and speed up strategic economic restructuring, and deepen reform and improve our work of opening to the outside world. We need to improve the people's lives, increase social harmony and promote all-round progress in socialist economic, political, cultural, social and ecological development.

今年国民经济和社会发展的主要预期目标是:国内生产总值增长8%左右,经济结构进一步优化;城镇新增就业900万人以上,城镇登记失业率4.6%以内;城乡居民收入稳定增长;居民消费价格总水平涨幅4%左右;国际收支状况继续改善。这里要着重说明,提出8%左右的国内生产总值增长目标,综合考虑了发展的需要和可能。在我们这样一个13亿人口的发展中国家,要扩大城乡就业,增加居民收入,维护社会稳定,就必须保持一定的经济增长速度。只要政策对头,措施得当,落实有力,就有可能实现这一目标。
We have set the following major targets for this year's national economic and social development: GDP will grow by about 8%; the economic structure will further improve; urban employment will increase by more than nine million persons; the urban registered unemployment rate will be held under 4.6%, urban and rural incomes will grow steadily; the rise in the CPI will be around 4%; and the balance of payments will continue to improve. It needs to be stressed that in projecting the GDP growth target at about 8%, we have taken into consideration both our need and ability to sustain development. In China, a developing country with a population of 1.3 billion, maintaining a certain growth rate for the economy is essential for expanding employment for both urban and rural residents, increasing people's incomes and ensuring social stability. As long as we adopt the right policies and appropriate measures and implement them effectively, we will be able to achieve this target.

做好今年政府工作,必须把握好以下原则:
To ensure success of the government's work this year, we must act on the following principles.

一是扩内需、保增长。坚持把扭转经济增速下滑趋势作为宏观调控最重要的目标,把扩大国内需求作为促进经济增长的长期战略方针和根本着力点,增加有效需求,加强薄弱环节,充分发挥内需特别是消费需求拉动经济增长的主导作用。
First, we must boost domestic demand to sustain economic growth. We need to steadfastly take reversing the downward trend in economic growth as the primary goal of macro control, and make boosting domestic demand a long-term strategic principle and a basic point of departure for stimulating economic growth. We will work to increase effective demand, shore up weak links, and give full play to the leading role of domestic demand, particularly consumer demand, in driving economic growth.

二是调结构、上水平。坚持把推进经济结构调整和自主创新作为转变发展方式的主攻方向,变压力为动力,坚定不移地保护和发展先进生产力,淘汰落后产能,整合生产要素,拓展发展空间,实现保增长和调结构、增效益相统一,增强国民经济整体素质和发展后劲。
Second, we must adjust the structure of the economy to raise it to a higher level of development. In changing the pattern of development, we will continue to focus on economic restructuring and independent innovation. We will turn pressure into impetus for growth, unwaveringly protect and develop advanced productive forces, shut down backward production facilities, integrate factors of production and create more room for development. We will balance our efforts to sustain economic growth, adjust the structure and improve economic performance to raise the overall quality of the national economy and strengthen the basis for its further development.

三是抓改革、增活力。坚持把深化改革开放作为促进科学发展的根本动力,进一步解放思想,加大重点领域和关键环节改革力度,消除体制机制障碍,激发创造活力。
Third, we must press ahead with reform to make the economy more vigorous. We will continue to take deepening reform and opening up as the fundamental driving force for promoting scientific development. We need to further emancipate our minds, intensify reform in major areas and key links, eliminate obstacles embedded in systems and mechanisms and stimulate greater creativity for development.

四是重民生、促和谐。越是困难的时候,越要关注民生,越要促进社会和谐稳定。坚持把保障和改善民生作为经济工作的出发点和落脚点,实行更加积极的就业政策,把促进增长与扩大就业、改善民生紧密结合起来,让人民群众共享改革发展的成果。
Fourth, we must give top priority to ensuring people's well-being and promote social harmony. The more difficulties we face, the greater attention we should pay to ensuring people's well-being and promoting social harmony and stability. We will continue to ensure that maintaining and improving people's lives is always the starting and end point of our economic work. We will implement an even more proactive employment policy and closely integrate efforts to stimulate growth with efforts to expand employment and improve people's lives in order to ensure that all of the people share in the fruits of reform and development.

三、2009年主要任务
III. Major Tasks for 2009
 

今年的政府工作,要以应对国际金融危机、促进经济平稳较快发展为主线,统筹兼顾,突出重点,全面实施促进经济平稳较快发展的一揽子计划。

大规模增加政府投资,实施总额4万亿元的两年投资计划,其中中央政府拟新增1.18万亿元,实行结构性减税,扩大国内需求;大范围实施调整振兴产业规划,提高国民经济整体竞争力。大力推进自主创新,加强科技支撑,增强发展后劲;大幅度提高社会保障水平,扩大城乡就业,促进社会事业发展。以实施一揽子计划为重点,今年要着力抓好以下七方面工作:
This year, our government work will give high priority to dealing with the global financial crisis and promoting steady and rapid economic development. We will take a coordinated approach, stress key areas, and fully implement a package plan to ensure steady and rapid economic development. We will dramatically increase government investment by launching a four trillion yuan two-year investment plan, for which the central government has pledged 1.18 trillion yuan, and implement a structural tax reduction in order to stimulate domestic demand. We will also implement a massive plan to adjust and reinvigorate industries to raise the overall competitiveness of the economy; vigorously promote independent innovation and provide scientific and technological support to increase the sustaining power of development; and significantly increase social security benefits, expand urban and rural employment and promote development of social programs. To implement this package plan, we will concentrate our efforts on the following seven areas.

(一)加强和改善宏观调控,保持经济平稳较快发展
1. Improving and strengthening macro control and maintaining steady and rapid economic development

要坚持灵活审慎的调控方针,提高宏观调控的应变能力和实际效果,尽快扭转经济增速下滑趋势,保持经济平稳较快发展。
We need to adhere to a flexible and prudent control policy to make our macro control more responsive to changes and more results-oriented. We will reverse the slowdown in economic growth as soon as possible and maintain steady and rapid economic development.

实施积极的财政政策。
We will implement a proactive fiscal policy.

一是大幅度增加政府支出,这是扩大内需最主动、最直接、最有效的措施。今年财政收支紧张的矛盾十分突出。一方面,经济增速放缓、减轻企业和居民税负必然会使财政收入增速下降;另一方面,为刺激经济增长、改善民生和深化改革,又需要大幅度增加投资和政府支出。

为弥补财政减收增支形成的缺口,拟安排中央财政赤字7500亿元,比上年增加5700亿元,同时国务院同意地方发行2000亿元债券,由财政部代理发行,列入省级预算管理。全国财政赤字合计9500亿元,占国内生产总值比重在3%以内,虽然当年赤字增加较多,但由于前几年连续减少赤字,发债空间较大,累计国债余额占国内生产总值比重20%左右,这是我国综合国力可以承受的,总体上也是安全的。
First, we will significantly increase government spending. This is the most active, direct and efficient way we can expand domestic demand. There will be a large discrepancy between government revenues and expenditures this year. On the one hand, a slowdown in economic growth and the reduction of tax burdens on enterprises and individuals will inevitably slow the growth of government revenues. On the other hand, we must significantly increase investment and government expenditures to stimulate economic growth, improve people's lives and deepen reform. To cover the shortfall arising from the decline in government revenues and growth in expenditures, we have set this year's central government deficit at 750 billion yuan, 570 billion yuan more than last year. In addition, the State Council will allow local governments to issue 200 billion yuan worth of government bonds through the Ministry of Finance, which will go into provincial budgets. These will add up to a 950 billion yuan deficit, accounting for less than 3% of the GDP. Although the deficit will increase significantly this year, the constant drop in government deficits in previous years provides room to issue more bonds this year, and the ratio of the cumulative balance of outstanding government bonds to GDP, which is around 20%, is within the acceptable range of what our overall national strength can bear and is therefore safe.

二是实行结构性减税和推进税费改革。采取减税、退税或抵免税等多种方式减轻企业和居民税负,促进企业投资和居民消费,增强微观经济活力。初步测算,今年全面实施增值税转型,落实已出台的中小企业、房地产和证券交易相关税收优惠以及出口退税等方面政策,加上取消和停征100项行政事业性收费,可减轻企业和居民负担约5000亿元。
Second, we will carry out structural tax reduction and promote reform of taxes and fees. We will reduce tax burdens on enterprises and individuals by a variety of means such as tax cuts, rebates and exemptions to encourage enterprise investment and consumer spending and invigorate the micro-economy. Preliminary calculations indicate that the burdens on enterprises and individuals will fall by approximately 500 billion yuan this year as the result of comprehensively carrying out VAT reform; implementing existing preferential tax policies on small and medium-sized enterprises, the real estate industry and securities transactions and export rebate policies; and rescinding or suspending 100 administrative charges.

三是优化财政支出结构。继续加大对重点领域投入,严格控制一般性开支,努力降低行政成本。
Third, we will optimize the structure of government expenditures. We will continue to increase investment in key areas, strictly control regular expenditures, and do everything we can to reduce administrative costs.

实施适度宽松的货币政策。货币政策要在促进经济增长方面发挥更加积极的作用。
We will follow a moderately easy monetary policy and give monetary policy a more active role to play in promoting economic growth.

一是改善金融调控。保证货币信贷总量满足经济发展需求,广义货币增长17%左右,新增贷款5万亿元以上。
First, we will improve financial control. We will increase the broad money supply by about 17% and grant over five trillion yuan in additional loans to ensure that the supply of money and credit meets the requirements of economic development.

二是优化信贷结构。加强对信贷投向的监测和指导,加大对三农、中小企业等薄弱环节的金融支持,切实解决一些企业融资难问题。严格控制对高耗能、高污染和产能过剩行业企业的贷款。
Second, we will improve the credit structure. We will strengthen monitoring and guidance of the flow of credit, increase financial support for weak links such as agriculture, rural areas and farmers as well as small and medium-sized enterprises, and effectively resolve the problem some businesses have in getting financing. We will strictly control lending to industries and enterprises that are energy intensive or highly polluting or have excess production capacity.

三是进一步理顺货币政策传导机制,保证资金渠道畅通。充分发挥各类金融机构的优势和特点,创新和改进金融服务,满足合理资金需求,形成金融促进经济发展的合力。
Third, we will improve the mechanism for transmitting monetary policy and guarantee the smooth flow of funds. We will make full use of the advantages and special features of all kinds of financial institutions, innovate and improve financial services, satisfy reasonable requests for financing, and create a synergy for finance to promote economic development.

四是加强和改进金融监管。各类金融企业都要加强风险管理,增强抵御风险能力。处理好金融创新、金融开放与金融监管的关系。加强跨境资本流动监测和管理,维护金融稳定和安全。
Fourth, we will strengthen and improve financial oversight and supervision. All kinds of financial enterprises need to strengthen risk management and become better able to withstand risks. We will ensure that there is a proper balance between innovation, opening up, and oversight and supervision in the financial sector. We will strengthen monitoring and supervision of cross-border capital flows and maintain financial stability and security.

要加强产业、贸易、土地、投资、就业政策与财政、货币政策的一致性和协调性,形成调控合力。
We need to make our fiscal and monetary policies more consistent and coordinated with our industrial, trade, land, investment and employment policies to create a control synergy.

(二)积极扩大国内需求特别是消费需求,增强内需对经济增长的拉动作用
2. Actively boosting domestic demand, especially consumer demand, and strengthening the role of domestic demand in driving economic growth

一是扩大消费尤其是居民消费。继续调整收入分配格局,提高劳动报酬占国民收入的比重,增加政府支出用于改善民生、扩大消费的比重,增加对城镇低收入群众和农民的补贴。

要培育消费热点,拓展消费空间。完善汽车消费政策,加快发展二手车市场和汽车租赁市场,引导和促进汽车合理消费。大力发展社区商业、物业、家政等便民消费,加快发展旅游休闲消费,扩大文化娱乐、体育健身等服务消费,积极发展网络动漫等新型消费。完善消费政策,优化消费环境。

加快建设万村千乡市场工程,推进连锁经营向农村延伸。要加强城乡消费设施和服务体系建设,规范市场秩序,维护消费者合法权益。抓紧研究出台鼓励消费的政策措施,积极发展消费信贷。做好家电下乡农机下乡汽车、摩托车下乡等工作,把中央财政的400亿元补贴资金用好用活,使企业增加销售、农民得到实惠。
First, we will expand consumption, especially individual consumption. We will continue to adjust income distribution, raise the proportion of the national income that goes to wages, increase the proportion of government spending dedicated to improving people's lives and expanding consumption, and increase subsidies to farmers and low-income urban residents. We need to cultivate areas of high consumer demand and expand consumption in new areas. We will improve the policy on automobile consumption, accelerate development of markets for second-hand cars and car rental, and guide and promote rational spending on automobiles. We will vigorously expand consumption that makes people's lives easier, such as community-based businesses, property management and household services; accelerate development of tourism and leisure consumption; increase consumption in culture, recreation, sports and fitness services; and vigorously expand consumption in new areas such as the Internet and animation. We will improve consumption policies and the consumption environment. We will accelerate the project to encourage retailers to open stores in more townships and villages, and encourage commercial chains to open more outlets in rural areas. We will intensify the development of consumption facilities and service networks in both urban and rural areas, rectify order in the market, and safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of consumers. We will promptly work out and introduce policies and measures to encourage consumption, and vigorously develop consumer credit. We will do all the work of implementing the programs for bringing home appliances, agricultural machinery, and automobiles and motorbikes to the countryside well, and we will make effective and flexible use of the 40 billion yuan in central government subsidies provided to get enterprises to increase their sales and enable farmers to enjoy real benefits.

二是保持投资较快增长和优化投资结构。今年中央政府投资总额9080亿元,主要用于保障性住房、教育、卫生、文化等民生工程建设,节能环保和生态建设,技术改造与科技创新,铁路、高速公路、农田水利等重点基础设施建设和地震灾后恢复重建。政府投资必须用在应对危机最关键的地方,用在经济社会发展的薄弱环节,绝不能用于一般加工工业。

要抓紧研究出台鼓励引导社会投资的优惠政策。通过发布信息、加强引导,支持社会资本投向符合国家产业政策的领域,鼓励企业增加研发和技改投资。我们的每一分钱都来自人民,必须对人民负责。所有工程建设都要坚持百年大计、质量第一,给子孙后代留下宝贵财富。
Second, we will maintain rapid growth in investment and improve the investment structure. The central government plans to invest 908 billion yuan this year. Government investment will focus on projects to improve people's lives such as those for developing low-income housing, education, heath care and culture; projects to conserve energy, protect the environment, improve the ecosystem, upgrade technologies, and make scientific and technological innovations; projects to make key infrastructure improvements, including farmland improvement and water conservancy projects, railways, and freeways; and post-earthquake recovery and reconstruction. We must channel government investment to areas where it best counteracts the effects of the global financial crisis and to weak areas in economic and social development, and no government investment will be made in the regular processing industries. We will promptly work out and introduce preferential policies to encourage and guide non-governmental investment. We need to support non-governmental investment in areas favored by state industrial policies and encourage enterprises to increase spending on R&D and technological upgrading through proper release of information and improved guidance. All government money comes from the people, and we must spend every penny responsibly. We will make every effort to ensure that all construction projects meet high quality standards and are built to last and be passed onto our future generations as valuable legacy.

三是促进房地产市场稳定健康发展。采取更加积极有效的政策措施,稳定市场信心和预期,稳定房地产投资,推动房地产业平稳有序发展。加快落实和完善促进保障性住房建设的政策措施,争取用三年时间,解决750万户城市低收入住房困难家庭和240万户林区、垦区、煤矿等棚户区居民的住房问题。

中央财政将加大对廉租房建设和棚户区改造的投资支持力度,适当提高中西部地区补助标准;今年拟安排430亿元,用于补助低保住房困难家庭的实物廉租房建设。选择一些有条件的地区进行试点,把部分住房公积金闲置资金补充用于经济适用住房建设。积极发展公共租赁住房。落实好支持居民购买自住性和改善性住房的信贷、税收和其他政策。对符合条件的第二套普通自住房购买者,比照执行首次贷款购买普通自住房的优惠政策;对住房转让环节营业税,按不同年限实行有区别的税收减免政策。

促进普通商品住房消费和供给,加大对中小套型、中低价位普通商品房建设的信贷支持。加快发展二手房市场和住房租赁市场。鼓励引导各地因地制宜稳定和发展房地产市场,加强住房市场分类管理。

继续整顿房地产市场秩序,规范交易行为。帮助进城农民工解决住房困难问题。扩大农村危房改造试点范围。深化城镇住房制度改革,满足居民多层次住房需求,努力实现居者有其屋的目标。
Third, we will promote the steady and healthy development of the real estate market. We will adopt even more vigorous and effective policies and measures to stabilize market confidence and expectations, keep real estate investment stable, and promote steady and orderly development of the real estate industry. We will speed up implementation and improvement of policies and measures to promote development of low-income housing projects. Wewill strive to solve the housing problems of 7.5 million low-income urban families and 2.4 million families living in shantytowns in forests, on reclaimed land and around coalmines within three years. This year, the central government will allocate 49.3 billion yuan for the construction of low-income housing to increase funding for developing low-rent housing and improving housing conditions in shantytowns, and increase housing subsidies for the central and western regions by an appropriate amount. We will expand the pilot program for renovating dilapidated houses in rural areas and build permanent housing for nomads in ethnic minority areas. A pilot program will be launched in selected places where conditions permit to use the idle portion of the housing accumulation fund to support development of affordable housing. We will vigorously develop public rental housing. We will effectively implement credit, tax and other policies to support people in purchasing homes and making home improvements. Individuals who meet relevant criteria and apply for bank loans to support the purchase of a second home for personal use will enjoy similar preferential lending policies that apply to the purchase of first homes. We will implement the policy to reduce or exempt the business tax on housing transfers to varying degrees based on the age of the housing. We will expand consumption and supply of ordinary commercial housing, and increase credit support for building small and medium-sized condominiums at low and medium price levels. We will speed up development of the market for second-hand homes and the home rental market. We will encourage and guide local governments to stabilize and develop their real estate market in light of local conditions, and strengthen supervision of the housing market by type. We will continue to rectify order in the real estate market, and standardize transactions. We will help rural migrant workers in cities solve their housing problems. We will deepen reform of the urban housing system to meet people's multilevel housing demand, and strive to ensure adequate housing for everyone.

四是加快推进地震灾区恢复重建。抓紧全面实施灾后恢复重建总体规划,中央财政今年再安排1300亿元灾后重建资金。加快灾区城乡居民住房恢复重建,实行维修加固与新建相结合。基本完成因灾倒塌和严重损毁农房重建任务,保证受灾群众在今年底前住进新房。

加快地震灾区学校恢复建设,确保今年底95%以上的学生都能在永久性校舍中学习。继续推进交通、通信、能源、水利等基础设施恢复重建。搞好地质灾害防治、生态修复、环境整治和灾毁耕地复耕。结合实施重点产业调整振兴规划,加快灾区产业重建与发展。继续搞好对口支援和专项援助,管好用好灾后重建资金和物资。灾后重建要加大力度,加快进度,力争在两年内基本完成原定三年的目标任务,让灾区人民早日过上更加幸福美好的生活。
Fourth, we will accelerate recovery and reconstruction of areas hit by the Wenchuan earthquake. We will promptly and fully implement the master plan for post-earthquake recovery and reconstruction. The central government will allocate 130 billion yuan for this purpose this year. We will quickly rebuild homes for quake-affected urban and rural residents by combining repair and reinforcement of existing housing with construction of new housing. We will basically complete reconstruction of rural houses collapsed or badly damaged during the earthquake, and ensure quake-stricken residents can move into new houses by the end of this year. We will accelerate rebuilding of schools in the quake zone and ensure that more than 95% of the students whose school buildings were destroyed in the earthquake will have permanent school buildings. We will continue work to repair and rebuild infrastructure such as transportation, communications, energy and water conservancy facilities. We will effectively prevent and control geological disasters, restore the ecosystem, improve the environment, and resume cultivation of damaged arable land. We will speed up industrial rebuilding and development in the quake zone on the basis of the plan to adjust and reinvigorate key industries. We will continue to provide one-to-one assistance and special aid to the quake zone and manage and use funds, goods and materials for post-earthquake reconstruction well. We will intensify and accelerate post-earthquake reconstruction and strive to basically reach the targets in two years that had originally been set for three, so that residents of the quake zone can begin to live a happier life as soon as possible.

(三)巩固和加强农业基础地位,促进农业稳定发展和农民持续增收
3. Consolidating and strengthening the position of agriculture as the foundation of the economy, and promoting steady development of agriculture and continuous increase in rural incomes

今年重点抓好五件事:
We will focus on the following five areas.

一是稳定发展粮食生产。切实稳定种植面积,着力提高单产,优化品种结构,推进全国新增千亿斤粮食生产能力建设。
First, we will steadily develop grain production. We will effectively keep the area planted in grain crops stable, focus on increasing the yield per unit area and optimizing the variety mix, and increase the country's grain production capacity by 50 million tons.

二是以市场需求为导向调整农业结构。支持重要紧缺农产品生产,提高农产品质量、效益和竞争力。加快实施新一轮优势农产品区域布局规划,支持优势产区发展油料等经济作物,稳定生猪生产,实施奶业振兴规划,推进畜牧水产规模化标准化健康养殖。加强重大动植物疫病防控。
Second, we will adjust the agricultural structure based on market demand. We will support the production of important agricultural products in short supply, and improve the quality, profitability and competitiveness of agricultural products. We will speed up implementation of the new plan for developing agricultural products in regions with the most suitable conditions. We will support the growing of oil bearing and other cash crops in areas with the most suitable conditions. We will stabilize hog production, implement the plan for reinvigorating the dairy industry, and promote large-scale, standardized, healthy farming practices in animal husbandry and aquaculture. We will strengthen the prevention and control of major animal and plant epidemics.

三是加强农业基础设施和农村民生工程建设。大规模开展土地整治,实行田、水、路、林综合治理,推进中低产田改造,建设高标准农田。加快大中型和重点小型病险水库除险加固进度,加强灌区改造和小型农田水利建设。到明年底,基本实现全国乡镇和东中部地区具备条件的建制村道路硬化,西部地区具备条件的建制村通公路。再解决6000万人安全饮水问题,增加500万沼气用户,继续加强农村电网、邮政通信和社会事业等基础建设。
Third, we will intensify development of agricultural infrastructure and projects designed to improve the lives of rural people. We will develop land on a large scale and comprehensively improve farmland, water supplies, roads, and forests. We will upgrade low- and medium-yield farmland and develop farm plots that meet high standards. We will speed up the reinforcement of large and medium-sized reservoirs and dangerous key small reservoirs. We will further improve irrigated areas and build more small water conservancy facilities. By the end of next year, we will have basically paved the roads linking all towns and townships across the country and all incorporated villages with the proper conditions in the eastern and central regions and will have completed the construction of roads connecting all incorporated villages with the proper conditions in the western region. In addition, we will provide safe drinking water to another 60 million people and methane to an additional five million households. We will continue to improve rural infrastructure, including power grids, postal service, and telecommunications, and intensify development of rural social programs.

四是多渠道促进农民增收。大力发展特色现代农业,扶持农产品精深加工和销售,发展农村二三产业,加快小城镇建设,壮大县域经济。
Fourth, we will increase rural incomes in a variety of ways. We will vigorously develop modern agriculture with distinctive local features, support intensive processing and sale of agricultural products, develop rural secondary and tertiary industries, accelerate the development of small towns, and strengthen county economies.

五是加大扶贫开发力度。今年将实行新的扶贫标准,对农村低收入人口全面实施扶贫政策。新标准提高到人均1196元,扶贫对象覆盖4007万人,这标志着我国扶贫开发进入一个新阶段。要完善国家扶贫战略和政策,加大扶贫资金投入,坚持开发式扶贫,重点抓好整村推进、劳动力转移培训、产业化扶贫和移民扶贫,稳定解决扶贫对象温饱问题并努力实现脱贫致富。
Fifth, we will intensify our efforts to alleviate poverty through development. This year, a new poverty line will be adopted and all low-income rural residents will be covered by the poverty relief policy. The threshold will be increased to 1,196 yuan per person on average, and coverage will be extended to include 40.07 million recipients. This marks the beginning of a new stage in China's efforts to reduce poverty through development. We need to improve state poverty relief strategies and policies, increase funding, and steadfastly make development the basis of poverty reduction. We will give priority to eradicating poverty at the village level, training rural residents for nonagricultural employment, and reducing poverty through industrial development and relocation of residents so that the poor get the basic necessities, escape poverty, and become prosperous.

全面加强三农工作要采取以下措施:
We will take the following measures to comprehensively strengthen our work related to agriculture, rural areas and farmers.

一要大幅度增加农业农村投入。今年中央财政拟安排三农投入7161亿元,比上年增加1206亿元。大幅度增加对中西部地区农村公益性建设项目投入,取消县及县以下相关资金配套要求。支持粮食生产的政策措施向主产区倾斜,加大对产粮大县一般性转移支付、财政奖励和粮食产业建设项目的扶持力度。
First, we will greatly increase funding for agriculture and rural areas. Central government allocations for agriculture, rural areas and farmers will total 716.1 billion yuan this year, a year-on-year increase of 120.6 billion yuan. We will significantly increase funding for rural public facilities in the central and western regions, and relieve governments at and below the county level of the burden of providing supporting funds for them. Greater priority will be given to major grain-producing areas in implementing the policies and measures supporting grain production. More general transfer payments and financial rewards will be provided to major grain-producing counties and greater support given to projects for industrializing grain production.

二要较大幅度提高粮食最低收购价,保持农产品价格合理水平,提高种粮农民积极性。今年小麦、稻谷最低收购价平均每斤分别提高0.11元和0.13元。适时启动主要农产品临时收储政策,增加粮食、棉花、食用植物油和猪肉储备,加强农产品市场调控。
Second, we will significantly raise minimum grain purchase prices and keep the prices of agricultural products stable at a reasonable level to encourage farmers to grow more. This year the floor price for the purchase of wheat and rice will be increased by 0.22 yuan and 0.26 yuan per kilogram on average respectively. We will apply policies in a timely fashion to temporarily purchase and stockpile major agricultural products to build up reserves of grain, cotton, edible oil and pork, and strengthen regulation of the farm products market.

三要进一步增加农业补贴。中央财政拟安排补贴资金1230亿元,比上年增加200亿元。继续增加粮食直补。加大良种补贴力度,提高补贴标准,实现水稻、小麦、玉米、棉花全覆盖,扩大油菜和大豆良种补贴范围,实施油菜油茶良种补贴。农机具购置补贴覆盖到全国所有农牧业县(场),中央财政拟安排资金130亿元,比上年增加90亿元。根据农资价格上涨幅度和农作物播种面积,及时增加农资综合补贴。
Third, we will further increase agricultural subsidies. Central government funding for these subsidies will total 123 billion yuan, an increase of 20 billion yuan over last year. Direct subsidies to grain producers will continue to increase. We will increase subsidies for the use of superior seed varieties, raise subsidy levels, make subsidies available to all rice, wheat, corn and cotton growers, extend them more widely to canola and soybean farmers, and start to subsidize tea-oil tree planting. The central government will spend 13 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of nine billion yuan, on subsidies to all agricultural and pastoral counties (farms) throughout the country for purchasing agricultural machinery and tools. We will promptly increase general subsidies for agricultural supplies to coordinate with price rises and changes in the acreage planted in various crops.

四要加快新型农业社会化服务体系建设。加大农业科技投入,加强农业科技创新成果推广和服务能力建设。健全基层农业技术推广、动植物疫病防控、农产品质量监管等公共服务机构,支持供销合作社、农民专业合作社、龙头企业等提供多种形式的生产经营服务。
Fourth, we will speed up development of a new system under which various sectors of society provide services for agriculture. We will increase spending on agricultural science and technology, intensify efforts to expand application of innovations in agricultural science and technology and become better able to provide agriculture-related technical services. We will improve public service agencies charged with promoting application of agricultural technologies, preventing and controlling animal and plant epidemics, and monitoring the quality of agricultural products at the local level. We will support supply and marketing cooperatives, specialized farmer cooperatives and pacesetting enterprises in providing diverse production and operation services.

五要稳定完善农村基本经营制度。现有土地承包关系要保持稳定并长久不变,赋予农民包括离乡农民工更加充分而有保障的土地承包经营权。土地承包经营权流转必须坚持依法自愿有偿的原则。坚持和落实最严格的耕地保护制度和最严格的节约用地制度,严守18亿亩耕地红线不动摇。推进集体林权制度改革。深化农村综合改革。加快乡镇机构改革。积极稳妥化解乡村债务。
Fifth, we will stabilize and improve the basic rural operation system. We will ensure that existing land contract relationships remain stable and unchanged for a long time to come, and enhance and better protect the land contract and management rights enjoyed by rural residents, including migrant workers who are away from their home villages. The transfer of land use rights must occur on a compensated, voluntary basis and be conducted in accordance with the law. We will adhere to and apply the strictest possible systems for protecting arable land and economizing on the use of land, and do everything in our power to keep the total amount of arable land above the red line of 120 million hectares. Reform of the system of collective forest rights will move forward. Overall rural reform will be deepened. We will accelerate reform of town and township government departments and work actively yet prudently to ease the debts of townships and villages.

(四)加快转变发展方式,大力推进经济结构战略性调整
4. Accelerating transformation of the pattern of development and energetically promoting strategic economic restructuring

We will apply a performance-based salary system for teachers in compulsory education and raise salaries for the 12 million primary and secondary school teachers. The central government will spend 12 billion yuan and local governments will also increase funding for this purpose. We will step up training for all teachers, especially rural teachers, and encourage graduates from teachers colleges and other colleges and universities to teach at community and village schools.

四是推进素质教育。各级各类教育都要着眼于促进人的全面发展,加快课程、教材、教育方法和考试评价制度改革,把中小学生从过重的课业负担中解放出来,让学生有更多的时间思考、实践、创造。
Fourth, we will advance well-rounded education. Education of all types and at all levels must focus on promoting all-round development of students. Reform of curriculums, textbooks, teaching methods and examination and evaluation systems should be accelerated to relieve primary and secondary school students of their excessive study load so that they will have more time to think, practice and create.

五是实施全国中小学校舍安全工程,推进农村中小学标准化建设。要把学校建成最安全、家长最放心的地方。
Fifth, we will implement a program to ensure that all primary and secondary school buildings are safe and promote standardization in the construction of rural primary and secondary schools. We will make school buildings places that are the safest and provide the greatest assurance to parents.

推进医药卫生事业改革发展。要坚持公共医疗卫生的公益性质,充分调动广大医务人员的积极性。努力建成覆盖全国城乡的基本医疗卫生制度,初步实现人人享有基本医疗卫生服务。从今年开始,重点抓好以下五项工作。
We will carry forward pharmaceutical and health care reform and development. We will ensure that public medical and health care services serve the public good and fully arouse the initiative of health workers. We will work hard to establish a nationwide basic medical and health care system for both urban and rural areas to begin providing universal coverage. We will focus on the following five areas starting from this year.

一是推进基本医疗保障制度建设。将全国城乡居民分别纳入城镇职工基本医疗保险、城镇居民基本医疗保险和新型农村合作医疗制度覆盖范围,三年内参保率均提高到90%以上。中央财政对困难地区关闭破产国有企业退休人员参保给予适当补助。继续提高城镇居民医保和新农合筹资标准和财政补助标准,适当扩大报销范围,提高报销比例。完善城乡医疗救助制度,提高救助水平。
First, we will develop a system that ensures basic medical care. Urban residents will be covered by basic medical insurance for urban workers or basic medical insurance for non-working urban residents, and rural residents will be covered by the new type of rural cooperative medical care system. We will ensure that these programs cover over 90% of those eligible within three years. The central government will provide appropriate subsidies for retirees from closed or bankrupt state-owned enterprises in financially strained regions to get such insurance. We will continue to raise the standard for financing and increase government subsidies for basic medical insurance for non-working urban residents and the new type of rural cooperative medical care system, appropriately expand the scope of reimbursement and raise the proportion of costs reimbursed. We will improve urban and rural medical assistance programs and improve the level of assistance.

二是建立国家基本药物制度。今年要统一制定和发布国家基本药物目录,出台基本药物生产、流通、定价、使用和医保报销政策,减轻群众看病就医基本用药费用负担。
Second, we will establish a national system for basic drugs. This year, we will formulate and promulgate a unified national basic drugs catalog and adopt policies concerning their production, distribution, pricing, use and insurance reimbursement in order to ease the burden on patients for the cost of basic drugs.

三是健全基层医疗卫生服务体系。今年要全面完成规划支持的2.9万所乡镇卫生院建设任务。今后三年内中央财政再支持5000所中心乡镇卫生院、2000所县级医院和2400所城市社区卫生服务中心建设。支持边远地区村卫生室建设,实现全国每个行政村都有卫生室。
Third, we will improve the community-level medical and health service system. This year, we will complete the building of 29,000health clinics in towns and townships supported by the plan. In the coming three years, the central government will allocate funds to support the building of another 5,000 central health clinics in towns and townships, 2,000 county-level hospitals and 2,400 community health service centers in urban areas. We will support the construction of health care clinics in villages in remote regions and ensure that all incorporated villages have their own health care clinics.

四是促进基本公共卫生服务逐步均等化。扩大免费公共卫生服务范围,城乡居民人均公共卫生服务经费不低于15元,以后逐步提高。增加重大传染病、慢性病和职业病、地方病防治的专项投入。
Fourth, we will steadily promote equal access for all to basic public health services. We will expand the scope of free public health services and ensure that the per capita public health service expenditure for both urban and rural residents is not less than 15 yuan, a level that will rise gradually in the future. We will appropriate more funds to prevent and control major communicable diseases, chronic and occupational diseases, and endemics.

五是推进公立医院改革试点。重点改革管理体制、运行机制和监管机制。鼓励各地探索政事分开、管办分开、医药分开、营利性和非营利性分开的有效形式。逐步取消以药补医机制,推进公立医院补偿机制改革。鼓励各地探索建立医疗服务由利益相关方参与协商的定价机制,建立由有关机构、群众代表和专家参与的质量监管和评价制度。要充分发挥中医药和民族医药在防病治病中的重要作用。今后三年各级政府拟投入8500亿元,其中中央财政投入3318亿元,以保证医疗卫生体制改革的顺利推进。医疗卫生体制改革事关人民群众的健康权益,我们要加强领导、精心设计、认真组织,积极稳妥地推进,切实解决看病贵、看病难问题,为人民群众提供安全、有效、方便、价廉的医疗卫生服务。
Fifth, we will carry forward pilot reforms in public hospitals with the emphasis on reforms in their management system and their operation and oversight mechanisms. We will encourage every locality to seek effective ways to separate government administration from medical practice, management from operations, medical care from drugs, and for-profit from nonprofit operations. We will gradually eliminate the practice of hospitals subsidizing their medical services with drug sales and reform the mechanism of subsidizing public hospitals. We will encourage all localities to seek ways to establish a medical service pricing mechanism based on consultations among stakeholders and establish a system whereby relevant institutions, representatives of the general public, and experts oversee and evaluate the quality of medical services. We will give full play to traditional Chinese medicine and folk medicines of ethnic minorities in disease prevention and control. Governments at all levels will allocate an additional 850 billion yuan in the next three years, including 331.8 billion yuan from the central government, to ensure smooth progress in the reform of the system of pharmaceuticals and health care. Because this reform concerns the people's health-related rights and interests, we need to improve leadership, make plans and arrangements carefully, progress vigorously yet prudently, and effectively solve the problem of medical services being unaffordable and inadequate, in order to provide safe, effective, convenient and affordable medical and health care services for the people.

做好人口和计划生育工作,稳定低生育水平。从今年开始,在全国农村实行住院分娩补助政策,定期为孕产妇做产前检查和产后访视,为3岁以下婴幼儿做生长发育检查。加强出生缺陷预防工作。将农村部分计划生育家庭奖励扶助标准由人均600元提高到720元。加强流动人口服务和管理。保护妇女和未成年人权益。在农村妇女中开展妇科疾病定期检查。支持残疾人事业加快发展。继续加强老龄工作。
We will do our work related to population and family planning well and maintain a low birthrate. From this year on, we will introduce a policy in all rural areas to subsidize hospitalized childbirth, provide regular prenatal checkups and postpartum visits for women, and monitor the growth of infants and toddlers less than three years of age. We will intensify our efforts to prevent birth defects. We will increase the reward to rural women at or above the age of 60 who have complied with family planning regulations from 600 yuan to 720 yuan per person. We will improve services for and intensify management of the floating population and better protect the rights and interests of women and minors. We will provide routine gynecological examinations for rural women. We will support and accelerate programs benefiting people with disabilities. We will continue to intensify our work concerning the elderly.

大力发展文化体育事业。促进文化发展和繁荣,既可以拓展消费领域,也有利于丰富人们的精神文化生活。积极发展公益性文化事业,加快完善公共文化服务体系,加强重点文化设施、城乡基层文化设施特别是广播电视村村通和乡镇综合文化站、农家书屋建设,努力推进文化惠民工程。

We will vigorously develop culture and sports. Developing cultural programs and promoting cultural enrichment will help not only enrich people's cultural lives but also expand avenues of consumption. We need to vigorously develop non-profit cultural programs and accelerate improvement of the system of public cultural services. We will intensify construction of key cultural facilities as well as community-based cultural facilities in both urban and rural areas, particularly the project to extend radio and TV coverage to all villages, and the construction of multipurpose cultural centers in towns and townships and small libraries in rural areas, and we will vigorously promote cultural projects that benefit the people. We will help accelerate the development of cultural industries, improve policy support for them and foster leading cultural enterprises. We will help philosophy and the social sciences flourish, and actively develop literature, the arts, radio, TV, film, the press and publishing. We will strengthen development and management of Internet culture and effectively protect our cultural relics and intangible cultural heritage. We will reform management and operation of nonprofit cultural institutions and transform for-profit cultural agencies into enterprises. We will build more and better community-based public sports facilities, vigorously promote mass sports activities, raise the level of competitive sports and develop the sports industry.

加强民主法制建设。积极稳妥地推进政治体制改革,发展社会主义民主政治。要健全民主制度,丰富民主形式,拓宽民主渠道,依法实行民主选举、民主决策、民主管理、民主监督。

要健全基层群众自治机制,扩大基层群众自治范围,完善基层民主管理制度,保障人民群众依法直接行使民主权利、管理基层公共事务和公共事业。深入开展法制宣传教育,加强公民意识教育,树立社会主义民主法治、自由平等、公平正义理念。

统筹推进城乡社区建设,促进社会组织健康发展。加强政府法制工作,提高政府立法透明度和公众参与度,做到规范、公正、文明执法。
We will strengthen the development of democracy and the legal system. We will carry out political restructuring in an active yet prudent manner and develop socialist democratic politics. We need to improve democratic institutions, enrich the forms of democracy, expand its channels, and carry out democratic elections, decision-making, administration and oversight in accordance with the law. We will improve the mechanisms of self-governance by the people at the community level and expand the scope of community-level self-governance, improve the system for community-level democratic administration and ensure that the people directly exercise their democratic rights and administer community-level public affairs and public programs in accordance with the law. We will increase publicity of and education in the law, intensify education about citizenship, and promote the values of socialist democracy, the rule of law, freedom, equality, equity and justice. We will coordinate development of urban and rural communities and promote the healthy growth of civic organizations. We will strengthen government work concerning the law, increase transparency in government legislation, expand public participation therein, and ensure that the law is enforced in a standardized, fair and civilized manner.

加强社会管理,维护社会和谐安定。要特别重视维护群众合法权益,正确处理人民内部矛盾,及时合理解决群众反映的问题,坚决纠正各种损害群众利益的行为。

健全社会矛盾纠纷调处化解机制,引导群众以理性合法的方式表达利益诉求。坚持领导干部特别是主要领导干部处理群众来信和接待群众来访制度,服务群众,化解矛盾。健全社会稳定预警机制,积极预防和妥善处置各类群体性事件。

深入开展平安创建活动,加强社会治安综合治理。严密防范、依法严厉打击各类违法犯罪活动,维护国家安全和社会稳定。
We will strengthen public administration and maintain harmony and stability in society. We need to pay special attention to safeguarding people's legitimate rights and interests, correctly handle problems among the people, properly deal with their complaints in a timely manner, and resolutely correct all actions that harm their interests. We will improve the mechanism for mediating, handling and resolving social tensions and guide the people in expressing their concerns relating to their interests by reasonable and lawful means. We will adhere to the system whereby leading cadres, especially principal ones, handle people's letters and receive people's visits in order to serve the people and resolve conflicts. We will improve the early-warning system for social stability to actively prevent and properly handle all types of mass incidents. We will launch intensive campaigns to ensure public security and maintain law and order through a full range of measures.

(七)推进政府自身建设,提高驾驭经济社会发展全局的能力
7. Intensifying government self-improvement and making the government better able to manage overall economic and social development

过去一年,政府自身改革和建设取得了新的成绩,但与人民的期待仍有不小差距。政府职能转变还不到位,行政效率有待提高,形式主义、官僚主义比较突出,腐败现象在一些地方、部门和领域比较严重。这些问题必须下大气力解决。要紧紧围绕保增长、保民生、保稳定这个大局,加强政府自身建设。
Achievements were made in reforming the government and intensifying its self-improvement over the past year, but they still fall considerably short of what the people expect. The functions of government have not yet been completely transformed. Administrative efficiency needs to rise. Formalism and bureaucratism are still pronounced. Corruption remains a serious problem in some localities, departments and areas. Tremendous effort is needed to solve all these problems. We need to focus on the overall objectives of sustaining economic growth, ensuring people's well-being and maintaining stability, and intensify the work of government self-improvement.

坚持依法行政。规范行政行为,做到合法行政、合理行政、程序正当、高效便民、诚实守信、权责统一。深入贯彻行政许可法,继续推进行政审批制度改革,减少行政许可和审批事项,特别要减少投资审批、项目核准,落实企业的投资主体地位。促进公平竞争,消除地区封锁,打破行业垄断,组织调动各种社会资源,促进经济增长。通过全面正确履行政府职能,创造良好发展环境,增强企业投资的信心,增强社会消费的信心,增强人民群众对国家发展的信心。
We will continue to run the government in accordance with the law. We will standardize government administration, ensure that our administration is based on law and reason, executed through proper procedures, highly efficient, convenient for the public, honest and trustworthy, and that authority and responsibility are united. We will thoroughly implement the Administrative Permit Law, continue to carry out reform of the administrative examination and approval system, reduce the number of items it covers, especially investment examination and approval and project approval, and ensure that enterprises make their own investment decisions. We will promote fair competition, break regional blockades and industry monopolies, and organize and mobilize all social resources to promote economic growth. By ensuring that all government departments fully and properly execute their functions, we will create a favorable environment for development, and increase enterprises' confidence in investment, individuals' confidence in consumption and people's confidence in the development of the country.

实行科学民主决策。各项决策都要做到程序依法规范、过程民主公开、结果科学公正。政府重大决策的形成和执行都要加强调查研究,做到察民情、听民意、聚民智,尊重客观规律,提高决策的预见性、科学性和有效性。要推进政务公开,增加透明度,保障人民群众的知情权、参与权、表达权、监督权,让人民群众知道政府在想什么、做什么,赢得人民群众的充分理解、广泛支持和积极参与。

今年政府投资力度大、新上项目多,要确保监管到位,绝不能搞劳民伤财的形象工程和脱离实际的政绩工程,绝不允许利用扩大公共投资为单位和个人谋取私利。

各级政府都要自觉接受人大监督和政协民主监督,强化监察、审计等专门监督,高度重视人民群众监督和新闻舆论监督,做到行政权力运行到哪里,监督就落实到哪里,财政资金运用到哪里,审计就跟进到哪里。
We will make decisions scientifically and democratically. In all decisions we make, the procedures need to be lawful and standardized, the process democratic and open, and the results scientific and equitable. In formulating and implementing major government policies and decisions, we need to conduct thorough research and studies, heed people's concerns, solicit their opinions, pool their wisdom, act in accordance with objective laws, and make our policies and decisions more foresighted, scientific and effective. We need to make government affairs more open and transparent. We will ensure the people's right to stay informed about, to participate in, to express views on, and to oversee government affairs, and keep them informed as to what the government is thinking and doing so that we can win their thorough understanding, wide support and active participation. The government is investing a large sum of money and launching numerous new projects this year, and we will ensure they receive proper oversight. We will prohibit image projects that waste both human and financial resources and vanity projects that are divorced from reality, and will never allow any organization or individual to exploit the surge in public spending for private gain. Governments at all levels must conscientiously subject themselves to the oversight by the people's congresses and the democratic oversight by the CPPCC committees at their corresponding levels. We will tighten professional oversight by supervision and auditing departments, and attach great importance to oversight by the public and the news media. We will strive to make sure that oversight takes place wherever administrative power is exercised and that government funds will be audited wherever they are used.

切实转变工作作风。各级政府要坚定地贯彻中央的决策部署,紧密结合实际,创造性地开展工作,使中央的各项政策落到实处,收到实效。领导干部要深入调查研究,及时发现问题,解决问题;密切联系群众,关心群众疾苦,倾听群众呼声,为群众排忧解难。政府工作人员要始终保持昂扬向上、奋发有为的精神状态,和广大人民群众一道知难而进,开拓进取,艰苦奋斗,共克时艰。
We will earnestly improve our conduct. Governments at all levels need to resolutely implement the policy decisions and arrangements of the central leadership, stay firmly grounded in reality, and work creatively to ensure all policies are carried out fully and effectively. Leading cadres need to conduct thorough research and studies to promptly discover and resolve problems, maintain close contact with the people, show concern for their sufferings, listen to their opinions, and help them solve their problems. Government employees need to always maintain high morale, embody a vigorous spirit and work with the people to meet challenges head on, break new ground through hard work and tide over bad times together.

加强廉政建设和反腐败工作。以规范制度和制约权力为核心,针对腐败现象易发多发的领域和环节,从源头上防治腐败。坚决查处腐败案件,依法惩处腐败分子。我们一定要勤勉尽责,以实际行动和工作业绩,建设为民、务实、廉洁、高效的政府,让人民放心,让人民满意。
We will strengthen our efforts to promote clean government and combat corruption. We will focus on standardizing institutions and limiting the exercise of power, and prevent and punish corruption at its source in areas and links prone to corruption. We will resolutely investigate and prosecute corruption cases and punish corruptionists in accordance with the law. We must discharge our duties with great diligence and, through our actions and achievements, build a government that is for the people and is pragmatic, clean and efficient to satisfy people's needs and win their trust.

In the coming year, we need to make our army more revolutionary, modern and standardized, focusing on enabling it to fully carry out its historic missions in the new stage and in the new century. We will strengthen ideological and political work in the army. We will effectively transform our military training based on mechanized warfare to military training for warfare under conditions of greater IT application, and continue to enhance the army's ability to respond to multiple security threats and accomplish a diverse array of military tasks. We will modernize weapons, equipment and logistics support across the board. We will improve defense-related research, the weapons and equipment production system, the military personnel training system, and the army's logistics support system that integrate civilian with military purposes and combine military efforts with civilian support.

We will give Hong Kong and Macao greater access to the mainland's service sector. We will adopt effective measures to support development of Hong Kong- and Macao-funded enterprises on the mainland, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises, and help ease their difficulties. The great motherland will always provide strong backing to Hong Kong and Macao. We firmly believe that our compatriots in Hong Kong and Macao will surmount their current difficulties and create an even brighter future.

Last year important progress was made in our Taiwan-related work. Positive changes occurred in the situation in Taiwan, and major breakthroughs were made in cross-Straits relations. Consultations between the two sides of the Taiwan Straits were resumed on the basis of the 1992 Consensus, and complete, direct and two-way mail, transport and trade links were established. The two sides enjoyed more frequent people-to-people exchanges, closer economic ties, more active cultural exchanges and broader common interests. Cross-Straits relations have embarked on the track of peaceful development. In the coming year, we will continue to adhere to the principle of developing cross-Straits relations and promoting peaceful reunification of the motherland. We will remain committed to the goal of peaceful development of cross-Straits relations, and work actively to build a framework for and strive to achieve new progress in the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations. We will continue to comprehensively strengthen cross-Straits economic cooperation to jointly respond to the global financial crisis. We will actively promote financial cooperation across the Straits, support the development of Taiwan-funded enterprises on the mainland, provide financing services for qualified ones, and encourage their independent innovation, transformation and upgrading. We will strengthen two-way investment and industrial cooperation and expand and deepen agricultural cooperation between the two sides. We will support economic development on the west coast of the Straits in Fujian Province and in other areas where Taiwan investment is concentrated. We will accelerate normalization of cross-Straits economic relations and facilitate the signing of a comprehensive agreement on economic cooperation, and gradually establish economic cooperation mechanisms tailored to both sides of the Straits. We will increase contacts between individuals, expand exchanges among all sectors of society, vigorously promote Chinese culture and consolidate the common cultural bonds between the two sides. We will work on the basis of the one-China principle to enhance mutual political trust between the two sides. Based on this, we are ready to make fair and reasonable arrangements through consultation on the issue of Taiwan's participation in the activities of international organizations. We are also ready to hold talks on cross-Straits political and military issues and create conditions for ending the state of hostility and concluding a peace agreement between the two sides of the Taiwan Straits. We are convinced that, with the concerted efforts of the people on both sides of the Straits, we will achieve complete reunification of the motherland and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

Significant achievements were made in our diplomatic work last year. We joined hands with the international community in tackling the global financial crisis. We successfully hosted the Asia-Europe Meeting and enhanced mutual political trust and pragmatic cooperation between Asian and European countries. We actively advanced bilateral and multilateral diplomacy, and played a constructive role in global and regional hotspot issues. We stood firm in safeguarding China's sovereignty, security and development interests and in protecting the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese nationals and corporations overseas. Further significant progress was made in carrying out all-round diplomacy, and China's international standing and influence rose to a new height. In the coming year, we will continue to hold high the banner of peace, development and cooperation, adhere to the path of peaceful development and an independent foreign policy of peace, and pursue an open strategy of mutual benefit. We will increase friendly contacts with other countries in the world to create a favorable external environment for the steady and rapid development of China's economy.
