On November 23rd, 2019, the Chengdu Forum for the CPC construction leading urban and rural community development and governance was held in Chenghua District. More than a thousand experts and scholars from government departments, University and community gathered in Chenghua to talk about the good governance strategies of big city and seek new management models for cities. The forum theme is "building a new pattern of social governance at the grassroots level: theoretical Logic and practical exploration of the CPC construction leading the development and governance of urban and rural communities". It is guided by People's daily and hosted by Chengdu Municipal People's government. The domestic experts and scholars delivered a wonderful keynote speech focusing on the practical and theoretical exploration of community development governance.
Chengdu has become a super large city with an actual management population of more than 21 million. The urban development has entered the middle and late stage of industrialization and urbanization. Its production mode, urban form and social structure have undergone profound changes, which not only faces the special test of super city governance, but also faces the common problems of grass-roots governance.
Chengdu follows the rule of mega city governance, regards "people" as the highest value of urban development, focuses on the community as the basic unit of urban governance and the micro cell closest to the people, and makes the strategic choice of the CPC construction leading the development and governance of urban and rural communities. Through six aspects of practical exploration, such as highlighting system breaking, deepening system innovation, strengthening development empowerment, promoting governance efficiency, focusing on service quality improvement and laying a solid foundation, good results have been achieved.
At present, great changes have taken place in Chengdu's urban and rural communities. The sense of gain, identity and belonging of citizens has been significantly enhanced. The livable quality and spiritual temperament of the city have been significantly improved. The city has entered a new stage of high-quality development, high-quality life and efficient governance.
Professor Li houqiang, Secretary of Sichuan Academy of Social Sciences, was invited to participate in the forum, and to investigate the Hemei community in Chenghua District.
