Compiled on the basis of "Shanghai Municipal Committee 's Suggestion on Making the 13th Five Year Plan for the City of Shanghai" and "Minhang District Committee's Suggestion on Making the 13th Five Year Plan for the Minhang District", approved by the 9th conference of the 5th people's congress of Minhang District, "The 13th Five Year Plan for National Economy and Social Development of Minhang District" is a grand blueprint supervising Minhang's development in the next five years, a program of action guiding Minhang people to strive together and an important foundation on which the government performs its duties and plans its annual work.
Being both the new starting point of a path leading Minhang to become modem downtown area and a great plan with which Minhang will make new social and economic achievements, the important 13th Five Year Plan is a milestone in the development of Minhang. During the period of the 13th Five Year, our country will build a well-off society in an all-round way and Shanghai will basically build a socialist modernized international metropolis with "four centers". As a result, Minhang's 13th Five Year Plan should take pro-active action to carry the strategic task of the city's development and force to solve bottlenecks and weak points that have restrained local economic and social development consolidating the foundation of long-term development in the future.
The year 2020 will be a significant turning point the Minhang people have been looking forward to, because we will initially complete the leap from a modem new urban area to a downtown area. In the coming five years, only by reform, innovation and arduous work can we realize the beautiful blueprint of "Minhang dream" with our everyday endeavor. It can be predicted that the future Minhang will be a beautiful homeland that is more prosperous and civilized, full of energy with more happiness and harmony.
