As the Spring Festival is nearing, the festival mood is getting stronger. On January 22, provincial Party committee Deputy Secretary and Governor Liu Guozhong visited science and technology experts, people living in poverty and disabled families in Changchun and delivered greetings and blessings to them on behalf of the provincial Party committee, provincial government and provincial Party Secretary Bayanqolu.
Liu Guozhong first came to the Academy of Military Medical Sciences’ Military Veterinary Institute academician Xia Xianzhu’s home to cordially visit the old academician and send sincere sympathy. Academician Xia, although over 70 years old, has been still active in the front line of scientific research and Liu Guozhong expressed his deep admiration to the old academician’s correct and penetrating views of advising the governor to deepen cooperation with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and other scientific research institutions and strengthening the prevention and control of epidemic diseases. In Jilin Agricultural University’s 74-year-old academician Li Yu’s hone, Liu Guozhong and Li Yu jointly discussed the planting’s structure adjustment, promoting farmers' income and other issues. He listened carefully to the recommendations of the old academicians and said he will earnestly study and absorb. Liu Guozhong thanked the two academicians for their long-term support to the development of science and technology in Jilin. He said all the academicians and the vast scientific and technological workers have devoted themselves to scientific research and worked tirelessly to make contributions to the revitalization and development of Jilin. In the new situation, need to thoroughly implement the innovation-driven development strategy, give full play to Jilin's scientific and educational advantages, deepen the talent development system reform, allow more talented people to take root in Jilin and promote the creation of a favorable environment for talent creation.
As the Spring Festival is approaching, Liu Guozhong was very much worried about the life of the masses in poverty. In disabled Ma Zhenjie’s home, on behalf of the provincial Party committee, provincial government and provincial Party Secretary Bayanqolu, Liu Guozhong expressed the Chinese Spring Festival wishes to him and the province's more than 1.9 million people with disabilities. “What is you annual income?’ “Is the policy of helping the disabled implemented?” Liu Guozhong, while holding the hands of Ma Zhenjie, asked with concern. Although the Ma Zhenjie family is not well-off, he is full of hope and confidence. He said "with the Party and the government's good policy, our days will be able to be more prosperous.”
Liu Guozhong walked into the zero-employment family Wang Lina’s home and chatted with her. Once knowing Wang Lina supported the secondary school daughter relying on meager income, Liu Guozhong encouraged them to strengthen confidence and take heart of grace and they must be able to overcome the temporary difficulties through own struggles and the help of Party committees and governments at all levels.
In the visit and condolence, Liu Guozhong stressed letting the people live a stable and peaceful life is the Party and government’s incumbent responsibility. Party committees and governments at all levels should thoroughly implement the people-centered development thinking, strengthen the social assistance system construction, actively help and rescue the unemployed families, laid-off workers, disabled people and other people in need, protect the basic livelihood, make full efforts to hold up the bottom line of livelihood, and allow the broad masses to have a warm and peaceful holiday.
