The meeting stressed that it is necessary to promote the comprehensive and strict administration of the party in the spirit of self-revolution and to build stronger and stronger party organizations at all levels. We should put political construction in the first place, foster “four consciousness”, strengthen “four self-confidence”, achieve “two maintains”, and consciously maintain a high degree of ideological and political consistency with the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core. We should make solid efforts to promote the theme education of “not forgetting the beginning, remembering the mission”, work hard at overall planning, solving problems, emphasizing practical results, and forming a resultant force, and turn the enthusiasm radiated in the theme education into practical results in tackling tough problems and overcoming difficulties and in doing pioneering work. The party committees (party groups) at all levels, especially the secretaries, should perform their main responsibilities, the members of the leading bodies should perform their “double responsibilities”, and the discipline inspection and supervision organs at all levels should perform their duties in accordance with the rules and regulations and in accordance with the law. It is necessary to temper the ranks of loyal and clean-headed cadres, adhere to the correct orientation of selecting and employing personnel, take a clear-cut stand to support and encourage cadres who dare to shoulder their responsibilities, speed up the building of the ranks of young cadres, and vigorously create an environment for the development of talented people who are tied to their hearts and stay with others.

We should enhance our sense of crisis, keep up the momentum of catching up, base ourselves on the present, set our goals, do not concentrate on idle work, fight against time, do not let go of relaying work, put our feet on the ground, and be doers and strivers with no distraction from implementation. We should practice our skills, courageously build up the tide of the times, constantly upgrade our knowledge reserve, dare to bump into the hard work on the “racetrack”, temper and shape it at the grass-roots level, and be pioneers and leaders in tackling tough problems and doing good deeds. It is necessary to establish a clear-cut guidance for heroism based on actual achievements, accurately identify and use cadres, open up channels for “going up” and “going down”, resolutely dismantle the “iron chair” and “safe”, and make a big fuss of “building up” and “bolstering the courage” of cadres who dare to carry on tasks, be willing to do things, and be able to do things, so as to truly select and use them. It is necessary to carry forward the spirit of solidarity, create an atmosphere for starting an undertaking, persist in leading “lead singers”, “passing on songs” at various levels, and “chorus” at all levels, so as to rally the creative vitality and development momentum of the whole society, stimulate them, and promote Dalian’s high-quality development in a stable and far-reaching way.
