As the world's first largest open cooperation platform for trade in services, 2019 CIFTIS will be held in China National Convention Center from May 28 to June 1, 2019. With the theme of "Openness, Innovation, Intelligence and Integration", this session stresses digitalization, new economy and new service formats, focuses on scientific and technological services, cultural services, health services and business services and will continue to hold exhibitions and displays, forums and conferences, and business talks.
The meeting pointed out that Beijing will firmly deepen reform and expand opening up; earnestly implement 117 reform and opening up policies; perfect the system and mechanism for decrement development; consolidate the outcomes of the business environment reform; further the supply-side structural reform; deepen the reform of scientific and technological system and also the reform of the joint law enforcement chain mechanism at the township and department level; do well in the reform of state-owned assets and enterprises; support the development of private enterprises; build a modern economic system reflecting the characteristics of Beijing; forge ahead in the new round of pilot projects to make the service industry open up further and wrap up the CIFTIS, thus to attract more international high-end factors and get involved in the "Belt and Road" Initiative, and facilitate higher-level opening up.
The meeting stressed that efforts are needed in the following aspects in 2019. First, take the initiative to serve the overall situation. The top priority of Beijing next year is to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. Beijing must consciously obey and serve this overall situation in fulfilling all its tasks. Second, make headways while maintaining stability. Great emphasis should be given to "stability". With a stable foundation, progress should be made to ensure successful fulfilment of all tasks. Third, sustain the strategic focus. Beijing should make clear the current situation based on the long-term general trend, make constant efforts to grasp the law, enhance confidence and duly discharge obligations. Fourth, attach great importance to improving people's livelihood. Endeavors should be made to uphold the people-oriented approach, think and provide services based on citizens' needs, conscientiously respond to people's call and improve people's sense of gain, happiness and safety in a real sense. Fifth, strengthen work coordination. Sound coordination should be made in all major events, in the development of all causes and also in work forces; tasks should be completed in a holistic, systematic and coordinated manner to make Beijing play a guiding role and gain an advantageous position therefrom.
