It is of great theoretical and practical value.
Wang Xiao said: Lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets, which is the most essential part and most concentrated expression of Xi Jinping’s thought on eco-civilization. It embodies materialist dialectics and revolutionary wealth concept, enriches and develops Marxist contradictory theory, ecological outlook and the theory of productivity, provides value guidance and practice compliance for scientific understanding and vigorously building ecological civilization. Since 2016, the people of Xining City has thoroughly studied and implemented Xi Jinping's thought on eco-civilization and the spirit of his important speeches during his inspection to Qinghai. We always remember Lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets, and deeply understand that Ecology is like water and development is like a boat. The ideological method and practical carrier has been formed through materialization of Two Absolute (Always loyal to the CPC; resolutely consistent with the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core), establishing the Four Consciousnesses (All regions and all government departments have steadily strengthened their consciousness of the need to maintain political integrity, think in big-picture terms, uphold the leadership core, and keep in alignment.), strengthening the Four Self-confidence (Self-confidence on path, theory, system and culture) and implementing Two Maintenance (resolutely maintaining General Secretary Xi Jinping’s core status in Party Central Committee and maintaining the authority and centralized and unified leadership of Party Central Committee). With the major requirements on Four Down-to-earth Tasks (Solidly promote the sustained and healthy development of the economy, promote the ecological environment protection in a down-to-earth manner, solidly protect and improve people's livelihood, and strengthen and standardize the political life within the party.), we have strove to promote One Excellence and Two Superior (taking eco-protection as priority with high-quality development and living). A momentum of taking ecology as priority, pioneering development and spiritual leadership has come into shape through building happiness Xining in the new era as the overall goal and creating a work system with green development model city as a road map .
Wang Xiao pointed out: in practice, we deeply realized that Lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets. First, it revolutionizes the dialectical relationship between green development and political construction. Second, it revolutionizes the dialectical relationship between green development and the people’s position. Third, it revolutionizes the dialectical relationship between green development and responsibility. Fourth, it revolutionizes the dialectical relationship between green development and governance level, and leads the people of the city to insist on Xi Jinping's thought on eco-civilization as a key to answer the questions concerning theoretical and practical issues on eco-civilization construction. We have adhered to and strengthened the CPC's overall leadership, taken ecological priority and green development as the growth coordinates of happy Xining, established a clear direction of striving for green development is a political task, and actively promoted economic ecologicalization and eco-economicalization, vigorously promoted the six major construction actions such as Blue sky in Xining, Green Plateau and Clear Waters, etc., deepened the reform of environmental economic policies and institutional mechanisms, and comprehensively applied administrative, market, rule of law, science and technology and other means to promote the organic integration of sound ecology, economic development and the welfare of the people. As a result, the proportion of the total economic volume of Xining in the province and its contribution rate in provincial economic growth have been increasing year by year, the spiritual characteristics of Xining was inherited, and the urban temperament of Xining was reshaped and the quality of life in Xining was improved, which had laid a decisive foundation for building national civilized city, the only national unity and progress demonstration city among capital cities, the second place in China's top ten happy cities and one of the most secure cities in the country.
Wang Xiao emphasized: green has become the foundation for the development of Xining, and beauty has become the taste of happy Xining and ecology has become a competitive advantage for Xining. We sincerely hope to work with friends from all walks of life to adhere to Xi Jinping's thought on socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, thoroughly study and implement Xi Jinping's thought on eco-civilization, actively integrate into the Belt and Road construction, and strive to create a green development model city and hold the bottom line for economic development and ecological protection, co-construct beautiful ecological environment and sound economic development, gain double achievements from green rise and green prosperity, so that the everlasting lush mountains, lucid waters and clean air will make Xining shining brightly and contribute more to the construction of beautiful China.
Wang Liming said in his speech: since the 18th National CPC Congress of China, the Central Committee of CPC has attached great importance to green development. The CPC Committee and the People’s Government of Qinghai have conscientiously implemented the major requirements on Four Down-to-earth Tasks (Solidly promote the sustained and healthy development of the economy, promote the ecological environment protection in a down-to-earth manner, solidly protect and improve people's livelihood, and strengthen and standardize the political life within the party.) which was put forward by the General Secretary Xi Jinping during his inspection to Qinghai, and unswervingly persisted on the path of green development. Starting from 2016, the fair was functioned as a platform to showcase the new achievements of green development of Xining in an all-round and multi-angle way.
