The meeting emphasized that promoting comprehensive rural revitalization is the key focus in the new era’s journey for the “Three Rurals.” It is necessary to anchor the goal of building a strong agricultural country, learn and apply the experience of the “millions of projects,” and better advance the modernization of agriculture, rural areas, and Chinese-style modernization. The priority development of agriculture and rural areas should be adhered to, modern agricultural construction accelerated, the foundation of food security solidified, and farmers’ income increased through multiple approaches. The status of farmers as the main body should be maintained, rural talents vigorously cultivated, and all kinds of talents incentivized to participate in rural revitalization. The meeting also called for deepening the construction of rural ecological civilization, accelerating the green transformation of development methods, and building livable, business-friendly, and beautiful villages.


The meeting pointed out that in recent years, the instant delivery industry has emerged rapidly, playing an increasingly important role in promoting consumption, ensuring people’s livelihood, and expanding employment. It is necessary to strengthen facilitation and guidance, further create a favorable business environment, improve the industry’s development level and support capacity. Companies should be urged to adhere to food safety and delivery safety, strengthen the protection of workers’ rights, and promote the reduction of compliance operating costs for companies.


The meeting stressed the need to coordinate high-quality development and high-level security, focus on the deep integration of artificial intelligence and manufacturing as the main theme, focus on intelligent manufacturing, and develop scenario-based applications.  Key industries should be accelerated to upgrade intelligently, intelligent products developed vigorously, the industrial manufacturing system empowered at a high level, new productive forces formed rapidly, and strong support provided for the construction of a manufacturing powerhouse, network powerhouse, and digital China.


The meeting emphasized the need to further improve the basic system of the capital market, pay more attention to the dynamic balance of investment and financing, enhance the quality and investment value of listed companies, increase the intensity of medium and long-term funds entering the market, and enhance the market’s intrinsic stability. Capital market regulation must be strengthened with “zero tolerance” for illegal and non-compliant behavior, and a standardized and transparent market environment must be established. More effective measures should be taken to stabilize the market and confidence. The consistency of macro-policy orientation must be enhanced, the innovation and coordination of policy tools must be strengthened, the economic recovery must be consolidated and enhanced, and the stable and healthy development of the capital markets must be promoted.
