Zou Guangqi (vice director of Liaoning Provincial Department of Water Resources) presided over the meeting.
Members of the acceptance committee looked over related documents provided by the competent departments, made many on-site investigations, and listened to the work report made by the leading group which was responsible for managing works related to the ecologically-civilized city project. At the meeting, Yan Chenfan announced the opinion made by members of the acceptance commission regarding the evaluation.

When making the concluding remarks, Zou Guangqi said the evaluation meant a new start to comprehensively promoting the river (lake) responsibility system in Dalian. He said: “While making a better top-level design for construction of civilized water ecology in Dalian, we should summarize our experiences and promote the good experiences. And moreover, we should focus on building a branding image of Dalian’s civilized ecology while further improving the city quality as well as the quality of people’s living environment.”
