We must attach great importance to all these problems and take more effective measures to solve them.

2.  Objectives and Tasks for Development in the Following Five Years
The 19th National Congress of the CPC has fully opened a new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics. General Secretary Xi Jinping, as an exceptional leader, well deserves the support by all the Party members as well as the respect and support by the people. The feelings of the people of Zhejiang toward Xi Jinping are originated from the heart and especially profound. Xi Jinping's Socialist Thought with Chinese Characteristics in the New Era is a magnificent banner and a great truth for leading the Chinese nation to achieve a great rejuvenation. Zhejiang is the starting point for the Chinese Revolution, one of the pilot places for reform and opening up, and an important breeding ground for Xi Jinping’s socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, so in order to do a good job in the next five years, it it imperative for us to unite closely around the Party Central Committee with comrade Xi Jinping as the core, to hold high the banner of Xi Jinping's Socialism with Chinese Characteristics in the New Era, to enhance the "four types of awareness" and strengthen the "four self-confidences", to persist in carrying out the established blueprint to the end, and to strive to continue writing a new chapter in the "Eight Eight strategies"
According to the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the CPC and the spirit of the 14th Provincial Congress of the CPC and the 2nd Plenary Session of the 14th Provincial Party Committee, the general requirement for the development in the next five years is to hold high the great banner of Xi Jinping's socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era and implement the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the CPC in an all-round way, to remain true to the original aspiration and bear firmly in mind the mission so as to vigorously carry forward the revolutionary spirit and unswervingly advance along the road guided by the "Eight Eight Strategies", to adhere to the general orientation of making progress while maintaining stability, high-quality development, and the main line of the structural reform on the supply side economy, to highlight the work orientation of empowering the province with reform, innovation, opening up, and talents, to make overall plans to promote the prosperity, the rule of law, the culture, the peace, the beauty, and the administration free from corruption and bribery in Zhejiang Province, to build a well-off society in an all-round way and build a socialist modernization at a high level and in an all-round way, and to make greater contributions to the decisive success in the building of a well-off society, the great success in the construction of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, and the realization of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and the people's longing for a better life.
The goal to be achieved is to ensure that a well-off society is to be built in an all-round way by 2020. On this basis, we will continue to promote the construction of socialist modernization at a high level and and in an all-round way, so as to strive to achieve a provincial GDP of more than 7 trillion yuan, that is, a per capita GDP of 120,000 yuan, by 2022, so as to maintain the sustainable and rapid growth of the three major incomes of residents, enterprises and financial authorities, with a disposable income per capita of more than 70,000 yuan for urban residents and a disposable income per capita of more than 35,000 yuan for rural residents, and so as to continue to forge ahead at the forefront and embody the due responsibility taken by Zhejiang Province in the historical process of aspiring for prosperity.
To achieve these goals, we must grasp the following three aspects:
Focusing on High Quality. High quality is the essential requirement of "Two High Levels." In the new stage of high-quality development, we must fully implement the development conception of innovation, coordination, greenness, openness, and sharing, give top priority to quality and efficiency, continuously deepen the structural reform in the supply side, vigorously promote quality reform, efficiency reform and motivation reform, strive to build a modern economic system led by the new economy, speed up the formation of a high-quality and highly-diversified supply system, promote the restructuring and the upgrading, the quality and the efficiency, and the sustained and healthy development of the economy.
Focusing on Competitiveness. Competitiveness is one of the focuses of the "Four Aspects for Empowering the Province". In the crucial period of winning a decisive victory in the construction of a well-off society in an all-round way, we must firmly grasp the superiority theory entailed in the "Eight Eight Strategies", strengthen the supply system through reform and the first momentum through technological innovation, create the most favorable business atmosphere through quality service, and expand room for development through all-round opening up, according to the logic of putting comparative advantages into full play and fostering competitive advantages, so as to continuously improve Zhejiang's economic innovation and international competitiveness and thus accelerate the formation of new advantages which can lead the development in the future .
