Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, December 9th-A symposium on the 70th anniversary of the New China Meteorological Enterprise was held in Beijing on the 9th. Hu Chunhua, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and vice premier of the State Council, attended the meeting and delivered a speech. He emphasized that it is necessary to thoroughly study and implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important instructions, accelerate the construction of a strong meteorological country in accordance with the decision-making arrangements of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, and provide more powerful meteorological service guarantees for sustainable and healthy economic development and social harmony and stability.
Hu Chunhua pointed out that in the past 70 years, with the great attention and cordial care of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, the vast number of cadres and employees of the meteorological system have consistently served the country and the people. People's livelihood, disaster prevention, mitigation and relief have made outstanding contributions. Facing the new situation and new tasks, the vast number of meteorological workers should carry forward the fine traditions, promote the high-quality development of meteorological undertakings, comprehensively improve the capability of meteorological services, and better play the role of the first line of defense in disaster prevention and mitigation.
Hu Chunhua emphasized that the key to speeding up China as a meteorological power is to vigorously promote the modernization of meteorology. It is necessary to strengthen the party's overall leadership and earnestly translate the significant advantages of the party and state systems and governance systems into the development results of the meteorological cause. It is necessary to give top priority to ensuring the safety of the people's lives and property, and to better protect the people's production and living needs. Efforts should be made to improve the ability of services to ensure economic and social development and effectively reduce the loss of meteorological disasters. It is necessary to benchmark the world's advanced level, strengthen scientific and technological innovation, and strengthen research on key core technologies. We must deepen reform and opening up, actively participate in global climate governance and construction, and strive to write a new chapter in the development of meteorological undertakings in the new era.
