(2005) No.7 All Commissions, Offices, Bureaus, Neighborhoods and Towns of the District Government and relevant Units: Through study, the District Agreement agrees that “Implementation Opinions on the Blood Donation of Residents in Xuhui District in 2005” is now transmitted to all of you for careful implementation. Implementation Opinions on the Blood Donation of Residents in Xuhui District in 2005 According to the spirit of the “Implementation Opinions on Uncompensated Blood Donation in Shanghai in 2005” (H.F.B.F. (2005) No.3 document) issued by the Municipal Government, the general objective of the Ministry of Public Health about “realize 100% uncompensated blood donation and 80% voluntary uncompensated blood donation nationwide in 3-5 years to come” as well as the target of the total blood donation quantity of 300,000 person units (200mm/person unit) and voluntary uncompensated blood donation reaching 50% of the citywide clinical blood consumption in Shanghai and the plan on a blood donation quantity of 18058 person units in our district, to do better in uncompensated blood donation, the implementation opinions on uncompensated blood donation work in our district in 2005 are now given as follows: I. Targets and Tasks Guarantee to fulfill the blood donation task of 18058 person units for the year 2005 assigned by the Municipal Government to our district. On this basis, strive to ensure that the percentage of voluntary uncompensated blood donation increases over last year so as to lay a solid foundation for achieving the target of voluntary uncompensated blood donation reaching 80% in 3-5 years. II. Main Contents 1. Perform the duty of blood donation in accordance with law and ensure that the task of blood donation is completely fulfilled. All relevant departments and units shall, in accordance with the responsibilities as specified in the “Blood Donation Law of the People’s Republic of China” (hereinafter referred to as “Blood Donation Law” and “Blood Donation Regulations of Shanghai” (hereinafter referred to as “Blood Donation Regulations”), enhance the recognition of the significance of organizing citizens to participate in uncompensated blood donation and carefully organize the citizens within the jurisdictions and units to fulfill the tasks on time and with quality and quantity guaranteed according to the plan assigned by the District Government so as to ensure that the blood donation plan assigned by the Municipal Government to our district is completed. This year, our district will assign the blood donation plans according to 6% of the staff of units (as per the number of staff for whom endowment insurance is paid) and 2.5% of the persons without working units of the neighborhoods (towns). The relevant department cracking down on illegal blood donation shall make regular checkups on blood donation; with respect to target task and existing problems, strengthen communication and coordination, define division of work and extensively mobilize the citizens to participate in uncompensated blood donation. Red crosses, trade unions, communist youth leagues and women’s federations at all levels and other mass organizations shall give play to their respective advantages to assist administrative departments in actively promoting the uncompensated blood donation work of citizens. The units shall incorporate the uncompensated blood donation work of citizens into the construction of spiritual civilization, take it as one of the contents for the appraisal of “model quarter”, “model community”, “model village or town”, “model unit” and “model industry” and facilitate the moral construction of citizens, moral education of youth and creation of healthy city (district). 2. Take measures to make continual progress in the work on voluntary uncompensated blood donation. According to the annual target of the “quantity of voluntary uncompensated blood donation strives to reach 50% of clinical blood consumption” in Shanghai, this year, our district shall make further progress on the basis of last year’s voluntary uncompensated blood donation and strive to achieve the target of the quantity of voluntary uncompensated blood donation reaching 80% of total blood donation quantity in 3-5 years. (1) Each unit shall set up models, cultivate voluntary uncompensated blood donators, formulate incentive mechanism and expand its voluntary uncompensated blood donators. Our district will select 3-5 units with relatively mature conditions as the experimental units of blood restructuring and promote the experience to the whole district. (2) Increase the number of moving blood collecting points so that volunteers can donate blood nearby. Our district will increase 2-3 points on the basis of former Liubai Department Store and Longhua Martyr Cemetery bus stops. The blood donation cars park at these fixed points regularly so that blood donators donate blood. (3) Facilitate moving blood collecting cars to enter hospitals for the convenience of the blood donation of the family members of patients needing blood transfusion. This year, our district will increase 1-2 hospital parking points on the basis of the experimental parking point at 6# Hospital last year, for the convenience of the blood donation of the family members of patients needing blood transfusion. (4) Discuss preferential incentive mechanism and consolidate and expand the volunteer team of our district. Advocate the change of one blood donation to regular multiple blood donations; from 200ml/one time to 400ml/time; from the donation of whole blood to component blood donation. Increase the total quantity of voluntary uncompensated blood donation. 3. Strengthen publicity and change blood donation concept of citizens. The crucial factor to solve the difficulty in the blood donation of citizens is to change the blood donation concept of citizens. This change depends on various forms of effective publicity. (1) Before the work on mobilizing citizens to donate blood starts, all neighborhoods (towns) and units shall first make publicity, make use of blood donation models to publicize the reasons of uncompensated blood donation, safe blood transfusion, healing the wounded and rescuing the dying as well as blood physiology knowledge of “blood donation is not detrimental to body health” to citizens on a face to face basis, relieve citizens of their worry and enhance citizens’ self-consciousness and initiative of participation in uncompensated blood donation. (2) Our district will publicize uncompensated blood donation to the public in a centralized way during the publicity week of uncompensated blood donation and on the 7th anniversaries of the “Blood Donation Law” and “Blood Donation Regulations”. This work will be deployed separately. (3) Actively assist education departments in the voluntary uncompensated blood donation of colleges and universities and the blood donation knowledge education for high and primary school students. The Blood Management Office shall make efforts in terms of coordination, publicity and service. New breakthrough shall be made in the voluntary uncompensated blood donation of colleges and universities this year. For the blood donation knowledge education for high and primary school students, it is required to actively explore new forms on the basis of summarizing previous years’ work and centering on education results. (4) The district-level news media and outdoor advertising management units shall make publicity on uncompensated blood donation to the society through TV, newspapers, periodicals, Internet, outdoor advertising, etc so as to create a good atmosphere of uncompensated blood donation in the whole district. 4. Strengthen management and ensure that blood donation proceeds in a legitimate, healthy and orderly way. The imposture of units and individuals in respect of blood donation not only violates the “heal the wounded and rescue the dying” fundamental aim of uncompensated blood donation, but also causes serious threats to the body health of people. This year, our district will strengthen management and resolutely put an end to the occurrence of these events. (1) All units shall, abiding by the spirit of the “Blood Donation Law”, “Blood Donation Regulations”, “Circular of the General Office concerning Printing and Distributing the ‘Regulation Plan on Illegal Blood Collection and Supply and Pure Collection of Blood Plasma’” (G.B.F. (2004) No.44) and the “Circular about Further Strengthening the Supervision and Law Enforcement of Blood and Maintaining the Normal Blood Donation Order” (H.W.Y.Z. (2003) No.149) issued by Shanghai Public Health Bureau, carefully organize citizens to donate blood and prohibit the illegal imposture in blood donation. Once found, the person concerted will be punished severely in accordance with law. The public security, supervision and other departments shall crack down on “blood dealer” and “blood head” in accordance with law and maintain the normal blood donation order. The units shall take effective measures to ensure the healthy operation of the legalized management of blood donation in both the outset and mechanism. (2) The “Law Enforcement Network Group” already established by our district will assist the blood management institution in identity verification at blood donation and physical checkup site. The blood management institution will insist on a series of effective management methods related to blood source management, such as “system of the leader of blood donation unit signing and assuming chief responsibility”, “system of site identity verification, signing and sealing”, “system of ascertaining responsibility” and “system of return visit to blood donation unit” and take various measures to put an end to the illegal imposture in blood donation. (3) Medical units shall strengthen management and service regarding safe blood transfusion and do a good job of blood supply in accordance with the stipulations of the “Blood Donation Law” and the “Blood Donation Regulations”. The blood management institution shall actively and ardently provide the excellent and convenient service for people on the basis of strengthening management.

Keywords: knowledge, science and technology property, outline, circular [Back To Contents] Circular of Shanghai Xuhui District People’s Government General Office     about Addressing Peak Electricity Demands in Xuhui District in the Summer of 2005 (May 18, 2005) X.F.B.F. (2005) No.10 All Commissions, Offices, Bureaus, Neighborhoods and Towns of the District Government and relevant Units: With the rapid development of national economy and continual improvement of people’s living standard, the electricity demands have been increasing constantly and there are the time period and season contradictions between power supply and demands. This, in some degree, affects the healthy development of economy. According to the forecast, the highest power load of Shanghai during high temperature period this year is approx. 18.5MKW, normal urban power supply capacity is 11.4MKW, the expected incoming power supply is about 4.7 MKW and there may be a power shortage of about 2.7~3MKW. East China becomes a region facing a relatively serious power shortage. Shanghai Municipal Party Committee and Municipal Government attached great importance to the work on addressing peak electricity demands in the summer of this year and issued the “Circular of the General Office of Shanghai Municipal People’s Government about Addressing the Peak Electricity Demands of our City in the Summer of this Year” (H.F.B.F. (2005) No.17) to deploy this work. Now, the work on addressing the peak electricity demands of our district in the summer of this year is informed as follows: I. Basic Ideas Based on the principle of “One Insist, Three Guarantees” (i.e. insist on restricted electricity consumption and no electricity disconnection, guarantee that the living electricity consumption of residents is not affected, guarantee to meet the production needs of the key enterprises complying with industry policies and guarantee the normal order of urban production and life) put forth by the Municipal Party Committee and Municipal Government as well as the requirements of “Four Further Strengthens” (i.e. further strengthen power supply capacity, further strengthen the worn on electricity saving and energy saving, further strengthen the elimination of the enterprises featuring high costs in law compliance and law enforcement and low costs in law violation and further strengthen the electricity use of enterprise by turns), the work of our district on addressing peak electricity demands in this summer shall embody “Five Combines”: 1. combine electricity consumption policy with industry restructuring; 2. combine electricity consumption policy with the improvement of Shanghai’s investment environment; 3. combine electricity consumption policy with the improvement of the production conditions of staff; 4. combine electricity consumption policy with the guarantee of production safety and social stability; 5. combine electricity consumption policy with electricity saving and energy saving. II. Main Measures The work on addressing peak electricity demands in Shanghai in this summer lasts from June 15 to September 23, which is divided into three different periods, i.e. whole period of addressing summer peak electricity demands, high temperature period and extremely high temperature period (above 35℃). Corresponding methods and measures will be taken depending on different situations: (1) Industry policy. Combine electricity consumption policy with industry policy, energy policy and environmental protection policy. Give priority to the power consumption demands of advantaged industries, strive to meet the demands of moderate industries and strictly restrict the demands of disadvantaged industries. Restrict the power consumption of the power consuming enterprises which do not comply with industry policies and industry layout and feature high energy consumption, high pollution, low output, etc. (2) Peak avoidance and by-turns leave of enterprises. For non-continuous production enterprises in our district, adjust days off to avoid the peak for production. Arrange the non-continuous production enterprises and some continuous production enterprises to carry out the summer plan on taking leave by turns. For some wholly foreign-owned enterprises, key foreign trade export enterprises and the enterprises whose production equipment and processes have special requirements, implement the temporary electricity restriction of peak avoidance and negative control measures. (3) Adjustment of power consumption demands. When the temperature exceeds 35℃ in the summer, suspend the power consumption of central air conditioners of high-grade recreation places before 18:00; advocate the Party and government organs, emporiums, office buildings, hotels and entertainment places to appropriately increase the temperature of air conditioners (usually not lower than 26℃; in this regard, the Party and government organs shall take the lead). Non-industrial enterprises shall use central air conditioners and some equipment by avoiding the daily power consumption peak period. (4) Price leverage. Implement the summer electricity price policy, further increase the difference between peak and valley electricity prices and promote users to avoid the power consumption peak. Summer electricity policy will be implemented from July 1 to September 30. Peak/valley ratio is adjusted to 4.5:1. Peak electricity price is implemented during the peak period from 13:00 to 15:00 so as to control the maximum power consumption demands. Electricity price compensation for peak avoidance may be implemented for the users not using power during peak period. The compensation amount is apportioned equally in the price-added electricity amount in the summer. (5) Electricity saving and energy saving. Push forward the publicity, education and training on electricity saving and energy saving, actively promote new electricity saving and energy saving technologies and products, encourage to use gas air conditioners, solar energy equipment and green lighting demonstration projects and develop the cleaning and maintenance of air conditioning system, etc so as to save energy, reduce consumption, increase efficiency and alleviate the contradiction power supply and demand. III. Specific Requirements (1) Strengthen organization leadership and form a composite force. Strengthen the organization leadership and work coordination of the district’s work on addressing summer peak electricity consumption demands. The District Leading Group on Addressing Summer Peak Electricity Consumption Demands is the main responsible unit. It is responsible for formulating and coordinating the work proposals on the restricted electricity use of industrial, commercial, service industry and other enterprises in our district; adjusting and carrying out the power consumption restriction indexes and execution result in our district; publicizing and promoting new electricity saving and energy saving technologies and vigorously facilitate the work on energy saving, consumption reduction and efficiency increase. (2) Develop publicity and education and push forward the work on electricity saving and energy saving. Through the work on addressing summer peak electricity demands and by focusing on “electricity saving and energy saving, jointly build an energy saving city”, develop publicity and education activities, enhance the electricity/energy saving awareness of the society at large, have a full understanding of the strategic significance of both energy saving and environment improvement to sustainable development and endeavor to build an energy saving society. Take multiple forms to extensively develop energy saving publicity through news media and actively promote new electricity/energy saving technologies and products. During summer vacation, organize community residents and students to participate in electricity/energy saving publicity, education and knowledge popularization activities so as to continually enhance residents’ consciousness of resource crisis and self-consciousness of energy saving. (3) Formulate meticulous proposals and measures to cope with the electricity consumption peak in the summer. Depending on the actual situation of “amount of electricity shortage, amount of electricity consumption after peak staggering and avoidance”, steadily and meticulously formulate the proposals on the electricity restriction of areas, departments, enterprises, etc. Prepare for the worst situation, make efforts to achieve the best result, standardize the power consumption order, operate electricity restriction in an orderly way, jointly participate and coordinate, reduce power consumption and guarantee to go through the electricity consumption peak in this summer.

Guidelines With carrying out the important thought of “Three Represents” as guidance, with a view to building Xuhui district into a “first-rate downtown district”, pursuant to the overall requirements of the municipal economic commission, combine the actual circumstances of the food markets in the district, bring the initiative of food markets, neighborhood offices and town governments into full play, thoroughly act on the spirit of the “Decision”, proactively push forward standardized food market construction, improve the overall standards of the district-wide food markets in an all-round way, raise the public awareness that food market facilities are public facilities, gradually straighten out ownership relationships, probe new operating mechanisms and management modes, align with and complement the development of raw and fresh food supermarkets to create a standardized and structured district staple and non-staple food retail supply network. b. Objectives 1. Overall Objective: from 2005 to 2007, pursuant to the requirements of the “Circular on Issuing Shanghai Municipality Local Standards regarding Food Market Setup and Management Procedures” (Shanghai Quality & Technical Supervision Bureau Standard 2005 No. 144), strengthen overall planning and coordination, perfect distribution planning, consolidate infrastructures, reconstruct all the permanent food markets and temporary food markets that do not require demolition within three years in a standardized way (40 such food markets in total).

Short-term objective: initially select locations for trial reconstruction of standardized food markets in 2004 according to tentative standards issued by the municipal competent departments and plan to renovate 15 markets by the end of 2005, one for each neighborhood or town in principle while renovation of two food markets must be completed for a neighborhood or town that has already had three or more permanent food markets. Renovation of 13 food markets will be completed by the end of 2006. Renovation of 12 temporary food markets that do not require demolition within 3 years must be completed by the end of 2007. Renovation of 40 food markets will be completed in 3 years. (see the appendix for the specific list) B. Measures Adhere to the policy of “overall planning, step-by-step implementation, rigorous standards, proceeding from models, fulfilling planning, pushing forward with concrete measures, neighborhood holding accountable, carrying out construction and management at the same time”, to push forward various tasks in a measured and solid way. a. Set up an organizing body to strengthen management Set up the district standardized food market construction and management joint meeting, attended by representatives from the District Government General Office, The District Economic Commission, Xuhui District Public Security Substation, Xuhui District Bureau of Finance, Xuhui District Bureau of Public Health, Xuhui District Bureau of City Appearance, Xuhui District Bureau of Environmental Protection, Xuhui District Bureau of Planning, Xuhui District Bureau of Housing And Land, Xuhui District Administrative Bureau of Industry And Commerce, Xuhui District Quality And Technical Supervision Bureau, Xuhui District Food And Drug Administration, Xuhui District Urban Administration Brigade, neighborhoods and towns. Xuihui district standardized food market construction and management office (hereinafter referred to as “Food Management Office”) will be set under the joint meeting, located in the district economic commission. b. Do a good job in the pilot markets and strengthen planning In accordance with the requirements of the municipal and Xuhui district government on constructing infrastructures, develop community commerce planning programs and organize neighborhoods and towns etc to study and grasp the essence for implementation. Units of different levels across the district have reached the consensus, selected Changqiao Luoxiang food market and Huajing Xupu food market as the pilot food markets in Xuhui district for standardized construction and management. On the basis of summing up the pilot food markets, 40 standardized food markets will be completed in 3 years, to be carried out by year. In the light of different consumption demands of residents in each neighborhood and town and on the basis of ensuring completion of 40 standardized food markets, make great efforts to push forward the construction of raw and fresh food supermarkets and further improve the edible agricultural and sideline products network planning and distribution in order to satisfy the different needs of the residents in Xuhui district. c. Regulate and control resources and give moderate support Food market is both a public facility and a trade that makes narrow margins of profit. For newly built food markets in neighborhoods/towns where food markets are scarce, approaches such as government buyback, providing land or construction funds etc may be adopted to control food market networks and the property rights belong to respective neighborhoods and towns. Each neighborhood and town should unremittingly strengthen their respective food market construction and management and take it as one of the major tasks for serving community residents. The district government considers increasing public welfare subsidy budgets in the Xuhui district special funds for industry development used for food market construction. d. Define responsibilities and reorganize procedures Under the guidance of the municipal competent departments and the leadership of the government Party committee and government, each neighborhood and town holds themselves responsible for planning implementation, construction development and day-to-day management. The district economic commission will lead relevant departments to develop and improve food market distribution and planning, setup standards and related management rules, coordinate implementation of relevant policies and guide industry management. Xuhui district administrative bureau of industry and commerce is responsible for overseeing vendors’ business activities. Xuhui district urban administration brigade is responsible for supervision and management outside food markets. Xuhui district food and drug administration is responsible for hygienic supervision and management relative to vendors and commodities. Xuhui district quality and technical supervision bureau is responsible for supervising and administering quality, measurements and standards. Xuhui district bureau of planning and Xuhui district bureau of housing and land (property right transaction center) are responsible for planning implementation and review and supervision. Xuhui district bureau of finance is responsible for implementing and supervising relevant preferential funds. e. Seek unity of thinking and push forward in an all-round way The standardized food market construction and management is one of the solid things to be accomplished by the district government in 2005. The district economic commission should take the lead while relevant departments of the district should give full cooperation. Each neighborhood and town should make full use of organizational and managerial advantages and fully mobilize the initiative of market owners, seek unity of thinking, define targets and responsibilities, make concerted efforts, detail plans and push forward in an all-round way. C. Appropriation budget and purposes Most of investment in reconstruction of standardized food markets is self-financed by enterprises with appropriate subsidies granted by the municipal and district governments (in the proportion of 1:2 in principle). Market-oriented operating modes may be adopted in raising funds from the market. The municipal and district financial subsidies are mainly used for expenditures incurred from equipment purchases and management tool improvements for guaranteeing “food safety, fair dealing, public security and environmental sanitation”. D. Work Plans and Timelines a. 2005 work plan Phase I(Jan-Mar),each neighborhood and town selects one or two food markets as the first crop of construction projects.

(2004) No.10 All Commissions, Offices and Bureaus concerned of the District Government, Neighborhoods and Towns: To effectively follow out the spirit of the National Working Meeting on SARS Prevention and Control and the National Working Meeting on Public Health, build the regional public health system and improve the public health quality and level of residents, through study, the District Government decides that “Three-year Plan of Action on Strengthening the Building of the Public Health System in Xuhui District (2003-2005)” is printed and distributed to all of you for careful implementation. [back to contents] Three-year Plan of Action on Strengthening the Building of the Public Health System in Xuhui District (2003-2005) To carry out the “Law of People’s Republic of China on the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases” and “Emergency Regulations on Sudden Public Health Events and follow out the spirit of the National Working Meeting on SARS Prevention and Control and the National Working Meeting on Public Health, this plan of action is hereby worked out in line with the requirements of the “Three-year Plan of Action on Strengthening the Building of the Public Health System in Shanghai (2003-2005)” (hereinafter referred to as “Shanghai Three-year Plan of Action”) and based on the realities of our district. I. Background Information With the special attention paid by the District Commission and District Government, our district has made quantum advances in the building of public health system. In 1999, our district set up Xuhui District Health Bureau Health Supervision Office and Xuhui District Disease Prevention and Control Center. Since 1999, 8 district hospitals have been reorganized into community health service center and 1 demonstrative community health service center and 7 standardized community health service centers have been gradually established successfully. In the same year, centralized management was carried out over the health supervision sections of original district hospitals. Currently, 3 health supervision substations have been established under the District Health Bureau Health Supervision Office. Our district has gradually established the disease prevention and control network composed of the disease prevention and control center and community health service centers. The public health system of Xuhui District went through the test and played an active role in the anti-SARS fight in the first half of 2003. However, compared with the current overall competitiveness and strength of Xuhui District, the public health system of our district has certain gaps and weak links, including (1) the total investment in health is insufficient, per capita expenses are only 2/3 of the citywide average level, expenses in public health are lower and the District Disease Prevention and Control Center to a great degree relies on its own income for development, all of which restrict the development of public health undertaking; (2) the management system of public health is not smooth and resources also need to be further integrated and utilized; (3) the number of persons in public health and their overall quality still cannot adapt to the needs of new situation, there is a serious lack in the high-level public health professionals and the personnel cultivation and use mechanisms have great defects; (4) public health infrastructures are weak and management system is backward; (5) emergency mechanism of sudden public health events is not healthy; (6) the prevention awareness of medical care personnel is weak and residents pay insufficient attention to disease prevention, etc. The sudden SARS outbreak in 2003 cautions us that public health issue is no longer merely a health issue, but also an important part of state security and city security systems. In some degree, a city without a sufficient strong public health system is a city without a tight security, which cannot resist the invasion of various biological factors, e.g. serious infectious diseases. While vigorously facilitating economic and social development, Xuhui District shall also continually strengthen and improve the building of public health system and build the protective screen for safeguarding the physical health of the mass and city security. II. Guiding Ideology and Principal Principles (I) Guiding Ideology Follow the guidance of the spirit of the Sixteenth National Party Congress and importance principle of the “Three Represents”, focus on the maintenance of social stability, persist in the philosophy of sustainable development, enhance the ability of dealing with the sudden public health events, effectively safeguard the physical health and life safety of residents, improve public health system and promote the building of socialist modernization drive.

(II) Principal Principles Based on the anti-SARS experience, strengthening the building of public health system must follow the following principles: 1. Principle of government guidance and social participation. Public health has “public” and “non-exclusive” characteristics. During its building, the principle of government guidance must be followed. Besides, because public health involves wide coverage, participation from the society at large is also needed. 2. Principle of combination of prevention and cure, with emphasis on prevention. Based on the anti-SARS experience, the main purpose of public health institutions is to take precautions to prevent diseases and offer advices and scientific basis for government decisions. Persist in the principle of combination of prevention and cure and integrate medical and public health resources to jointly cope with public health issue. 3. Principle of combination of higher and lower departments, with emphasis on the latter. Stick to “two-level government, three-level management and four-level network” urban management system framework, facilitate the public health system building of our district and give full play to the initiative, activeness and creativity of neighborhood offices, town governments and communities. 4. Principle of combination of the work at normal times and emergency situations with priority given to the latter. As far as public health system is concerned, it is required to focus on long-term building, strengthen quality building and infrastructure building and push forward the sustainable development of public health undertaking. Besides, it is also required to enhance the ability of coping with risks and sudden events, formulate the detailed emergency proposal, make preparations for coping with sudden events in terms of thinking and action and take preventive measures. (III) Planning Objectives Far-term objective: until the year 2010, build a public health system of government guidance and social participation in Xuhui District, featuring reasonable structure, perfect functions, healthy mechanism, highly efficient operation as well as top-notch personnel, equipment, management and level and which is commensurate with the functional positioning of Xuhui District, effectively safeguard the physical health and life safety of residents, maintain social stability and economic development and ensure that public health system plays an escorting role in the modernization drive of Xuhui District.

At usual times, this system provides the information support and technical safeguards for the public health management and medical services of Xuhui District; in case of emergency situations, it can be easily transformed into the emergency disposal and support system for sudden health events. Besides, build the pre-warning system with a sensitive, rapid response on the basis of perfect information system. (III) Build the Disease Prevention and Control System Xuhui District’s disease prevention and control system is in the main composed of Xuhui District Disease Prevention and Control Center and 13 community health service centers. Under the guidance of the Municipal Disease Prevention and Control Center, the District Disease Prevention and Control Center carries out the monitoring of dangerous factors, conducts epidemiology investigations, takes disease prevention and control measures and takes charge of the technical training and guidance for the disease prevention and control within the jurisdiction. As the grassroots disease prevention and control networks of communities, 13 community health service centers shall stick to the principle of “combination of higher and lower departments, with emphasis on the latter”, rely on the networking function of neighborhood offices and residents’ committees and give play to the function of social intermediary organizations, enterprises and institutions so as to effective prevent and control various infectious diseases and chronic non-infectious diseases and guard against and timely dispose of various sudden public health events. (IV) Build the Medical Treatment System The purpose of Xuhui District’s medical treatment system is to offer the timely and reliable medical assistance for public health events. According to the severity of sudden events, Xuhui District’s medical treatment system consists of three levels, i.e. municipal-level medical institution treatment network, district-level medical institution treatment network and community medical treatment network. Zhongshan Hospital is the heart emergency treatment center, Shanghai No.6 People’s Hospital is the acute injury emergency treatment center, Children’s Hospital is the emergency treatment center for pediatric infectious diseases and other children diseases, Shanghai No.8 People’s Hospital is the emergency medical institution when infectious diseases break out and Xuhui District Central Hospital is the medical institution for the emergency disposal of vocational diseases. All comprehensive medical institutions shall offer the relatively independent outpatient service related to infectious diseases.

Put emphasis on the building of disciplinary leaders, disease prevention and control personnel, health supervision personnel, general practitioners and emergency disposal team for sudden public health events, and continually improve overall quality, professional level and technical capability. By making full use of the resource advantages of Shanghai Medical College of Fudan University and three-level hospitals in Xuhui District, vigorously strengthen the cultivation of senior talents in public health and also place emphasis on the cultivation and use of disciplinary leaders in Xuhui District. Besides, focus on promoting the applied-type scientific research with respect to the scientific research inputs and appropriately conduct the scientific research work relating to community health service, disease prevention and control, health supervision, etc. (VI) Build the Health Supervision System Health supervision system is an important guarantee for the effective operation of public health disease prevention and control system.

Community health service centers shall fulfill the training of health supervisors, and all neighborhoods and towns shall set up a team consisting of 10-15 health guardians, who receive the unified training of the Health Supervision Office and develop the work under the guidance of the Health Supervision Office. (VII) Build the Social Support System The main purpose of the social support system is to mobilize various resources and ensure the building and operation of public health system through the overall planning and coordination of the District Government and the participation and cooperation from parties concerned and in line with the requirements for the combination of the work at normal times and emergency situations. It is required to make integrated use of economic, political and legal means to establish and improve the effective mechanism of mobilizing the human, material and financial resources of the whole society to cope with sudden events. When sudden public health events occur, the social support system does relevant social work under the unified coordination of the municipal and district emergency command centers. IV. Key Building Projects In 3 years to come, the public health system of Xuhui District shall focus on the building of three key programs, three networks and three projects. (I) Three Key Projects 1. Building of Public Health Center and Emergency Center in Xuhui District By the end of 2004, complete the building of the District Public Health Center. This Center is composed of the following medical and public health units: District Disease Prevention and Control Center, District Health Bureau Health Supervision Office, District Patriotic Health Office, District Red Cross and District Blood Donation Office. Among them, the District Disease Prevention and Control Center and the District Health Supervision Office shall be equipped in accordance with the requirements of “Standard for the Resource Deployment and Capability Building of the Disease Control Institutions and Health Supervision Offices at both District and County Levels in Shanghai” and also act as the public health emergency command and control centers of Xuhui District in case of any emergency situation. 2. Building of Department of Infectious Diseases and Department of Prevention and Cure of Vocational Diseases Xuhui District Medical Center will build the standardized department of infectious diseases and department of prevention and cure of vocational diseases, which are used as Xuhui’s designated hospital for the treatment of infectious disease patients and professional department for the prevention and cure of vocational diseases respectively. Build the standardized department of infectious diseases to offer the special isolation wards when infectious diseases prevail and break out. Further strengthen the building of the isolation observation wards of the department of infectious diseases so that they meet the actual needs of patient treatment when infectious diseases prevail or break out on a small scale in Xuhui District. The department of prevention and cure of vocational diseases shall be equipped with necessary personnel and equipment and develop the physical checkup, prevention and cure of vocational diseases. Besides, it is also used as the clinical base of the District Disease Prevention and Control Center and realizes the resource sharing with the latter. (II) Three Networks 1. Disease Prevention and Control Network Xuhui District’s disease prevention and control network is a two-level network composed of District Disease Prevention and Control Center and community health service centers. The District Disease Prevention and Control Center is the hub and center of this two-level network and the internal management mechanism, personnel cultivation mechanism and mechanism for leaders taking up jobs through competition must be continually improved so as to make it truly become a district-level disease prevention and control guiding center commensurate with its function positioning. In line with the requirements of the Municipal Health Bureau, continuously increase the number of business rooms. In the first quarter of 2004, fulfill the necessary equipment deployment. By the end of 2003, ensure that the community health service centers of 5 neighborhoods fulfill the formerly omitted work on disease prevention and control and complete the perfect “Disease Prevention and Control Center – Community Health Service Center Network”. By relying on the “two-level governments, three-level management and four-level network”, organize the relatively perfect disease prevention community volunteer teams composed of an appropriate number of members at the residential quarters of neighborhoods and towns and continually enhance community resident’s awareness and ability of disease prevention. 2. Health Supervision Network Further improve the two-level network of Xuhui District Health Bureau Health Supervision Office and enforcement teams at a neighborhood level, base the staffing and staff expenses of the Health Supervision Office in accordance with the “Standard for the Resource Deployment and Capability Building of the Health Supervision Offices at both District and County Levels in Shanghai”, and also actively coordinate the Municipal Health Bureau in developing the explorations and experimental work of vertical management. By the end of 2004, fulfill the establishment of the health guardian teams of neighborhoods and towns. 3. Medical Emergency Treatment Network Place emphasis on building the Department of Infectious Diseases of Shanghai No.8 People’s Hospital and the Department of Prevention and Cure of Vocational Diseases of Xuhui District Central Hospital. Make vigorous efforts to strength the building of disciplines while pushing forward hardware building. During 2003-2004, fulfill the building of the service for infectious disease outpatients at all comprehensive hospitals in Xuhui District, including fever, intestinal and hepatitis outpatient services. (III) Three Projects 1. Health Information Project In line with the requirements for building the health information network in Shanghai, build the district health information network, connecting the District Health Bureau, the District Disease Control Center, the District Health Supervision Office, community health service centers, regional medical center and the three-level medical institutions. This network will also be upwardly connected with the municipal health information network and horizontally connected with the district government network. 2. Personnel Project Build the contingency team for handling sudden public health accidents. Upon the occurrence of a medical accident, this team can promptly head to the spot and administer timely rescue and epidemiological investigation. In other cases, these team members will perform professional duties in their own posts while receiving regular training in emergency knowledge, professional skills and emergency drilling. This project also aims to strengthen the disease prevention & control measures, enhance the professional skills of the health supervision personnel and encourage more volunteers to join in the public health team. By 2005, the ratio of the public health personnel to the whole population within this district will reach 4.73:10,000, among whom the ratio of the health supervision personnel to the whole population will be 1.6:10,000. In addition, this project will involve intensively training general practitioners in the field of prevention medical knowledge so that they can play a big role in the public health work. By 2005, the number of community general practitioners will be up to at least 1/4 of the total number of practitioners in the whole district. By the end of 2004, the training of all hospital medical personnel in terms of prevention medical knowledge and professional skills will be completed so as to facilitate comprehensive improvement in disease prevention and control for all hospitals. An agreement with the Public Health College in Fudan University states that the College should designate teachers with a middle-grade professional rate or above to assist the directors of the relevant public health institutes in Xuhui district.

(2002) No.15) Keywords: administrative affairs, regulation documents, rescind, circular [back to Contents] Circular of Shanghai Xuhui District People’s Government General Office about Addressing Peak Electricity Consumption in Xuhui District in the Summer of 2004 (June 22, 2004) X.F.B.F. (2004) No.28 All Commissions, Offices and Bureaus concerned of District Government, Neighborhoods and Towns and relevant groups (companies): In recent years, with the rapid development of national economy, the industry economy has entered a new growth cycle. The electricity demand from industry production, city construction and residents’ daily life sees a rapid increase. It’s predicted that the maximum electricity consumption this summer during the high temperature hours will reach 16.7 million kilowatts. The normal power supply within the city is 10.5 million kilowatts and the power supply from outside sources will hopefully be about 3.8 million kilowatts. Thus there will be a possible power shortage of about 2 million-2.6 million kilowatts. Since East China is the area facing more severe power shortage, Shanghai municipal committee and the municipal government have paid high attention to the issue and have organized a special power coordination group to ensure the smooth addressing of peak power demand period this summer. Below is the notice for addressing peak electricity consumption in summer this year in Xuhui District: I. Basic Idea The principles of “One Insist, Three Guarantees” proposed by the Municipal Committee and the Municipal Government shall be actively implemented. “One Insist” refers to insisting on restricted power consumption instead of interruption. “Three Guarantees” refers to the guarantee of residents’ daily power utilization, the guarantee of the production of essential enterprises in compliance with the industry policies and the guarantee of normal and smooth production and life in the city. The addressing of peak power consumption in summer should represent “Five Combines”: 1. Combine the power consumption policy with the elimination of disadvantaged industries. Impose granting and restriction of power consumption on “Two Highs, One Low” disadvantaged industries that do not comply with industry policies or the industry layout. 2. Combine the power consumption policy with the improvement of energy consumption efficiency. Enterprises with high energy-consumption but low output per unit of energy consumption should use the electricity outside of the peak hours and implement granting and restriction on power consumption. 3. Combine the power consumption policy with the improvement of investment environment in Shanghai. Priority power supply should be given to essential enterprises in compliance with the industry policies, such as the enterprises in the three forms of ventures, namely Sino-foreign joint venture, cooperative enterprises and wholly foreign-owned enterprises. 4. Combine the power consumption policy with the improvement of working conditions. Trades and enterprises unsuitable for operations in high temperature should enjoy the priority of giving high-temperature leave or holidays to employees. 5. Combine the power consumption policy with production safety and social stability. Power supply shall be preferentially given to the enterprises requiring continuous production and the industries where a power cut might jeopardize safety. II. Take control of the overall situation and implement the operation of power consumption and power granting The addressing of peak power consumption period this summer in Shanghai starts from June 15 and ends on September 17. It is divided into three time segments, namely the whole peak power consumption period, high temperature period and the extremely high temperature period (above 35°C). According to different situations, Shanghai will take the following measures concerning power consumption and power granting: (i) Industry Policy Measure The power consumption policy should be coordinated and combined with the industry policy, environment protection policy and energy policy. Relevant work should be performed according to such principles, that is, guarantee the power supply for the competitive industries, satisfy the power demand of moderately advantaged industries and strictly restrict the power consumption by disadvantaged industries. (ii) Price Leverage Measure In cooperation with the addressing of peak power consumption period in summer, the seasonal electricity price policies are worked out to further enlarge the price difference during the peak period. As for the peak load period during 13:00-15:00, the power demand will be regulated and controlled by means of restricting the maximum demand volume. (iii) Electricity Demand Adjustment Measure Follow the international conventions to implement the management of power demand. Reasonably arrange some enterprises to stagger or avoid the peak power consumption period. The air-conditioned temperature in the Party and government offices, shopping centers, commercial buildings, hotels and high-end entertainment venues should be set above 26 °C. During the high-temperature period, the central air-conditioning in the high-end entertainment venues should be turned off before 16:00 every day. For work units with the power supply voltage level of 10KV or above, the power consumption load should decrease by 10% or above this summer compared to that of the same period last summer. During the high temperature or extremely high temperature periods, the construction of non-essential outdoor projects should be temporarily halted. (iv) Enterprises take holidays in turns Enterprises that find this measure feasible can shift their working schedules by taking holidays in turns. From the mid July to the beginning of September, coinciding with the summer holidays of primary and middle school students, the employees of some enterprises can take summer holidays in turns and will have one less day-off when the temperatures are cooler. (v) Electricity and Energy Conservation Policy Strengthen the publicity and education about electricity conservation to raise the social awareness at large, including the youngsters. Promote the technology of electricity conservation, fasten the construction of green lighting project and reinforce the strength of supervision over electricity and energy conservation. III. Measures to Address Peak Electricity Consumption in Summer in Xuhui District (i) Strengthen the leadership and form the composition of forces. In line with the spirit of the “Address Peak Electricity Consumption” conference held by the municipal government, and the guiding spirit of the leaders from the city committee and the municipal government that “Electricity problem is not only an economic problem but also a political problem; it is not only a development problem but also a stability problem”, Xuhui District puts strong emphasis on the coordination of power supply and demand to address the peak electricity consumption period this summer. Build a coordination team and strengthen the coordination between the leadership and the operation to address the electricity peak consumption in summer. The managing director of Xuhui district will take the lead and responsibility. The District Economic Commission, District Power Supply Department and other relevant departments will be responsible for working out, adjusting and implementing proposals and measures concerning power utilization and power granting in Xuhui District as well as constructing a channel between the government, the Power Supply Department and the enterprises for power supply and demand. The priority is to guarantee the normal daily power consumption by the residents, the safe power consumption by the essential enterprises, and the smooth development and business operations in the city at large. (ii) Carry Out Publicity and Raise Social Awareness In addition to ensuring safe power consumption, Xuhui District meanwhile strives to raise social awareness about resource and energy conversation. Through various publicity media and other effective means such as Xuhui newspaper, publicity board and meeting information, Xuhui District harnesses the correct public opinions to educate the residents on electricity consumption and granting, on electricity and energy conservation as well as on the current situation of power supply and demand so that the addressing of peak electricity consumption in summer can receive cooperation and support from all circles of the society. In terms of publicity, the main tasks are to spread publicity among foreign enterprises about electricity consumption and granting; to publicize cost saving and efficiency raising in industrial enterprises; to educate the students on summer holiday about electricity and energy conservation and raise their consciousness in this respect; to mobilize non-governmental groups, intermediary organizations and citizens to conscientiously perform energy conservation, create a good atmosphere for treasuring energy consumption and to exert common efforts to build a energy-saving society. (iii) Promote electricity and energy consumption and alleviate the pressure on power supply. With the rising of the temperature, the electricity supply network will be running overloaded. Apart from the economic and administrative measures put into place by the government concerning the safety of power consumption, Xuhui District also takes active behavior measures to change the power consumption situation in offices as well as service and business venues without neglecting the power saving effects by means of accumulation (“from small to big, from little to much”). Technological measures such as the green lighting demo project are also taken to cut down the power consumption peak, save energy and mitigate the pressure on power supply. (iv) Reasonably work out the proposals for power consumption in Xuhui District and smoothly go through the summer heat. Based on the principle of “covering the power shortfall with the power saved through staggering or avoid the peak”, Xuhui District is prepared for the worst situation but striving for the best. Through cooperation and coordination with the municipal government, with reasonable arrangement and operation in good order, together with the carefully worked-out proposals about power consumption and granting, Xuhui District is exerting its outmost efforts to minimize the bad influence incurred by segmental conflicts of power supply and demand during the peak power consumption period and to ensure the smooth get-through of the peak electricity consumption period this summer. Keywords: industry, electricity, allocation, notice [back to Contents] Circular of Shanghai Xuhui District Labor and Social Security Bureau and Shanghai Local Tax Bureau Xuhui Branch about the Regulation Opinions on the Total Salary Regulation of Enterprises in Xuhui District in 2004 (June 28, 2004) X.L.F. (2004) No.36 In line with the spirit of the H.L.B.Z.F. (2004) No. 18,19 and 20 documents issued by Shanghai Labor and Social Security Bureau and Shanghai Financial Bureau, combined with the actual situation in Xuhui District, implementation methods of enterprise total salary regulation in Xuhui District in 2004 are hereby proposed as follows: I. Self-determine Salary Level 1. To self-determine the salary level, the enterprises should be of independent accounting, be established in accordance with the “Corporate Law of the People’s Republic of China”, or have performed corporate restructuring (including the restructuring in the first half of this year) to realize the pluralization of investment subjects, have a complete structure of corporate governance and have performed normal production or operation without loss in the previous year. 2. It is applicable to the enterprises specified in the H.F.B. (1999) No. 46 document issued by the General Office of Shanghai Municipal Government, the Circular about Distributing <Division Criterion for Small Enterprises> issued by the Municipal Statistics Bureau and the (99) No.162 document issued by Shanghai Labor and Statistics Bureau. That is, the three types of encouraged small enterprises that have a complete financial system and good internal management and are law-abiding in tax payment. More specifically, they refer to the specially supported enterprises of technology and pioneering type, the metropolis enterprises that take in laid-off and unemployed staff, as well as the small enterprises of community service type. 3. It is applicable to companies established for the approved projects of the translation of high-new technological advances in line with the spirit of the municipal government about “Shanghai Provisions about promoting the translation of high-new technological advances into practical productive forces”. 4. It is applicable to approved software enterprises that have a complete financial and accounting system, good internal management and a standard employment system and are law-abiding in tax payment. The enterprises that comply with the criterion listed above should set up and perfect a mechanism of salary collective negotiation, a mechanism concerning the incentives and restraints on the operator’s income, a complete financial and accounting system, and should abide by the law to pay the taxes and perform withholding obligations. The enterprises should also follow the principle of “Give priority to efficiency with due consideration of fairness” and self-determine the employees’ salary level through collective negotiation with comprehensive reference to the salary guiding level in the labor market and the salary raise guideline issued in the current year. The enterprises declared by the Board of Directors to tentatively implement the method of self-determining salary level should submit written application (attached with the company stamp, the resolution of the Board of Directors, the agreement of salary collective negotiation, the appraisal method of the operator’s annual income and the audit report produced by the intermediary audit institution) to the Labor and Social Security Bureau. The District Labor and Social Security Bureau will forward the application to the Taxation Department for review and approval before actual implementation. The enterprises that practice salary level self-determination should grant the total salary amount listed in the cost expenses in the current year. The payable salary balance from the previous year in the payable salary subject should be written off within 3 years. Based on the production and operation characteristics, the constitution of personnel and the well sorted-out salary relations, and through continuously improving the mechanism of salary collective negotiation, the enterprises should set up a flexible salary allocation system that is associated with efficiency and can represent the incentives and restraints. Meanwhile, the enterprises should also reinforce the daily management of salary and labor cost and set up a real salary account. The total salary determined and granted by the enterprises through collective negotiation can be listed as cost expenses and will not be liquidated at the end of the year. II. Determination of Per Capita Base Figure (1) In principle, the per capita total salary base will be determined through the actual salary amount listed as cost expenses of the enterprise after salary liquidation in 2003 and the average number of employees (excluding persons whose social insurance relation is retained by agreement). The per capita salary granted from the salary balance remained in the previous years plus the per capita salary as determined above, the per capita salary actually granted in 2002 plus the part within the salary raise guideline applicable in 2003 and the salary raise paid by the enterprise due to the adjustment of minimum salary standard can be included in the per capita total salary base but cannot serve as the criterion for the adjustment of per capita benefit base. (2) In principle, the per capita benefit base should be determined by the average number of the employees in the enterprise in 2003, the realized tax and interest, or the realized amount of profits. For industries with unstable per capita benefit and big fluctuations, the per capita benefit can be determined with reference to the per capita benefits and salaries of the enterprise for the previous three years. III. Determination of Per Capita Newly-increased Salary 1. Implement the efficiency-based method. The per capita salary in an enterprise should fluctuate with the benefits. The efficiency-based ratio should be determined by the enterprise within 1:1. The determined fluctuation ratio will serve as the criteria for the liquidation at the end of the year. For the enterprises with comparatively high per capita salary base figure and too rapid efficiency-based economic index, if the newly-increase salary exceeds the average increase guideline in Shanghai in the current year, the excessive part can be allocated by means of decrease by grades. For enterprises with falling benefits, the per capita salary that can be listed as cost expenses should correspondingly go down at the same rate as the benefits but the falling rate cannot exceed the determined per capita total salary base figure by 20% maximum. 2. The newly increased salary of the enterprises in the red will be implemented in the loss reduction-based method. That is, if the net reduction (referring to the net loss reduction after newly increased salaries) of the enterprise loss in the current year compared to that in the previous year is between 5-10%, the per capita salary can be increased by RMB 750-800. If the net loss reduction is above 10%, then the per capita salary can be increased by RMB 850-900. 3. Implement the method of target benefit salary. The enterprise can determine the target benefits according to the per capita tax and interest, the actual salary level and the labor cost in the previous year and with reference to the enterprise salary increase guidelines in Shanghai in 2004. The newly increased salaries obtainable in the current year will be: (1) If the per capita salary level in the enterprise in 2003 is within the average employee salary in Shanghai (RMB 22160), then the salary can be increased by 9-10% according to the enterprise per capita salary level in Shanghai. (2) If the per capita salary level in 2003 reached the average employee salary in Shanghai or above but within 200% (RMB 44320), then the salary can be increased by 7-8% in 2004 according to the per capita salary level of the enterprise. (3) If the per capita salary level in 2003 was 200% or above of the average salary of the employees in Shanghai but within 300% (RMB66480), then the salary can be increased by 3%-4% in 2004 according to the per capita salary level of the enterprise. (4) If the per capita salary level in 2003 was 300% or above of the average salary of the employees in Shanghai, the salary can be increased by 3% in 2004 according to the per capita salary level of the enterprise. If the salary level is too high, zero increase can be implemented according to the actual situation. (5) If the per capita tax and interest of the enterprise kept balance or if there was a slight growth in 2003, the per capita salary should be increased by 3% in 2004. At the end of the year, if the enterprise fails to reach the appraisal index as declared, a deduction will be correspondingly performed while the deduction rate can not exceed the determined per capita total salary base figure by 10%. 4. Implement the methods for the content salary of RMB 100 output value and realized profit. According to the (2001) No. 36 document issued by Shanghai Labor and Social Security Bureau, the method of content salary contract of RMB 100 output value and realized profits will continue to be imposed on the building and construction enterprises. 5. For enterprises newly established in the current year, due to their unstable operation and benefits, their per capita salary levels will be determined by the Labor and Social Security Bureau together with the Taxation Department with reference to the labor market price and the average salary level of the industry or the employees of the whole city, and will be liquidated at the end of the year by the Taxation Department. 6. For enterprises that receive subsidies from the Financial Department for the loss incurred in a project, if the actual loss amount this year is lower than the loss amount ratified in 2003 or the fiscal current year, according to both the objective and subjective causes of the loss, newly increased salaries can be arranged within the actual loss reduction amount between 9%-10% of the per capita salary of the enterprise in the previous year. If the per capita salary in the enterprise in the previous year was lower than the average salary of the employees in Shanghai, the newly increased salary can be arranged as 9%-10% of the average salary of the employees in Shanghai. IV. Method of Total Salary Regulation Implement total salary regulation as per independent-accounting enterprise. The enterprise determines and declares the method of total salary regulation according to the situation of production, operation and economic benefits. The enterprises can choose and fill in the application form with multiple methods such as “Self-determine Salary Level” and “Efficiency-based” and turn it in to the Labor and Social Security Bureau before the end of August. Failure to apply before the due time will be deemed as voluntary renunciation of implementing the abovementioned methods of total salary regulation. For enterprises that choose methods such as “efficiency-based”, “target benefits” and “content of RMB100 output value”, the choices shall not be subject to random changes once approved and the salaries will be liquidated at the end of the year as prescribed. V. Salary Cost Management The per capita total salary granted according to the stipulation will be listed as enterprise cost expenses. The newly increase salaries can be listed as cost expenses on the principles that the enterprise is not in the red or the loss has been reduced. When the per capita total salary (or total salary) actually granted by the enterprise is less than the per capita total salary (or total salary) that can be listed as cost expenses, it can be deducted before the enterprise income tax of the current year. When the per capita total salary (or total salary) listed as the cost expenses exceeds the amount that can be listed, the excessive amount cannot be deducted before the enterprise income tax. VI. Various Labor Employment Enterprises should strengthen the internal management of employment and salary and regulate the labor employment behavior according to the actual production and operation situation. The total expenses for labor employment should be controlled within the quantum of actual use liquidated and confirmed by the taxation department in the previous year. The labor employment for the current year and the newly added labor employment should both be registered at the Labor Department. Otherwise, the labor employment shall be not listed for expenses before tax. The expenses (salary and bonus) for the labor employment paid by the enterprises should be listed in the second-level of the payable salary subject. If exceeding the quantum confirmed in the previous year, the expenses cannot be deducted before the enterprise income tax without an approval. VII. Salary Liquidation For enterprises that liquidate the salary at the end of the year, the specific policies concerning salary liquidation will be made by the District Financial Bureau together with the Municipal Labor and Social Security Bureau and delivered additionally. VIII. Miscellaneous Other enterprises in Xuhui District can also refer to the spirit of the above circular and declare the scheme of total salary regulation at the district Labor and Taxation departments. Keywords: 2004, enterprise salary, regulation opinions, circular [back to Contents]

Review of the Work in 20032003 is the first year since the new government took office. During the year, under the leadership of Shanghai Municipal Committee of CPC, Shanghai Municipal People's Government and the district committee of CPC, holding high the great banner of Deng Xiaoping Theory, fully acting on the important thought of Three Represents and in the spirit of the 16th National Congress of the CPC, the district government pulled out all stops to hard-win the battle against SARS break, stepped up the development of district economy on the occasion of the good growth momentum of macro economy, exerted itself to change the functions of the government and took positive steps to promote the construction of public government. All social undertakings continued to be pushed forward and social stability was further improved. All goals adopted at the 1st session of 13th People’s Congress of Xuhui District were accomplished, laying a solid foundation for objectives set in the district tenth Five-Year Plan and for the next five years proposed by the current district government. (1) Remarkable achievements were made in one phase of SARS prevention and treatment. Challenged by the sudden outbreak of SARS in the first half of 2003, under the unified guidance of the district committee, the district government met the general requirements of the municipal committee and municipal government to take effective measures to combat SARS in an orderly way, conducted medical observations or examinations on around 40,000 persons arriving in Shanghai from affected area, implemented preventative or curb measures on 778 suspected cases or cases having close contact with SARS patients, and succeeded in handling 4 emergencies, contributing to the safeguarding of Shanghai and being fully acclaimed by the expert panel from WHO and supervision group from the State Council. In terms of practice, we adhered to the principle of regional management, giving full play to streets, towns and neighborhood committees, stuck to the policy of unified guidance, accountability at all levels for neglect of duties, strictly controlling prevention, spotting, quarantine, treatment and other links, and also abided by the system of mobilizing all resources to contain SARS, intensifying education and management efforts in organizations or places where people moved frequently or often gathered in crowds and obtaining understanding and full support. After the SARS epidemic was relatively relieved, as required by the municipal government, we quickly turned to routine management in the long run and get work back to normal to ensure the economic development and all social undertakings not to be interrupted. (2) Regional economy has maintained a sustained, rapid and sound development. Under the principle of equally emphasizing speed, quality and effect, regional investment environment was further improved and regional economy achieved rapid growth, rational structure and good benefits while balanced reform, development and stability. During the year, regional value added was 7.574 billion yuan and total fiscal revenue 4.967 billion yuan, up 14.35% and 36.96% over last year respectively, including 3.186 billion yuan of district-level fiscal revenue, up 39.16% over last year on a comparable basis. Total retail sales of consumer goods reached 12.712 billion yuan and total industrial output value 10.872 billion yuan, up 15.36% and 27.30% over last year respectively. Investment in fixed assets was 5.34 billion yuan, almost standing at the same level as last year. Xuhui kept leading other central districts in terms of economic data, of which fiscal revenue and total industrial output value met the targets set in the tenth Five-Year Plan two years ahead of schedule. Two sectors, real estate and business, played the pillar role by generating 54%, or almost half of the total district revenue. The trade circle in Xujiahui was still bustling and flourishing, further showing the effect of integrated consumption. Community businesses were rapidly expanded to meet daily purchase of residents. Urban industries were in steady growth with economic benefits gradually enhanced. Exchanges and partnership with universities, research institutes as well as Caohejing Development Zone were promoted to further quicken expansion of high-tech industries. The district high-tech industries promotion meeting was convened, at which the targets of establishing overall development framework and the requirements on shaping the brand of “tech Xuhui “ were proposed, and a new round of development planning and policies centering around high-tech industries was formulated. There were 1,308 nongovernmental technological enterprises, bringing about 12.1 billion yuan in total revenue and 500 million yuan in taxation. Modern service sector maintained rapid growth momentum, playing increasingly significant role in regional economic development while tourism industry recovered from the downturn with some growth. Progress was registered in investment attraction. 104 foreign-funded enterprises were newly approved with contracted foreign capital of US$290 million, up 7% over the previous year. 1,800 domestic-funded enterprises were introduced with registered capital of 3.2 billion yuan, up 15% over the previous year.

More favorable surroundings were created for development of market economy. Xuhui was listed among pilot districts where integrity system was enforced. Market rectification and regulation produced effect of the current stage and the reform of administrative examination and approval system was being carried through. (3) Urban construction and management was further improved. Prestigious advisory and design bodies from home and abroad were invited to make overall strategic planning for Xuhui and to prepare planning for such key projects as the South Railway Station and Xujiahui in order to make Xuhui a world-class district. The key civil projects were in steady progress, for example, the goal for this year has been achieved in projects of the South Railway Station and rail transport No. 4 Line, and the second phase of Huming Viaduct was open to traffic. Renovation of Old Town was pushed along. On one hand, 34 land plots located in Old Town were being renovated, involving 5,388 households moved, on the other, the alternative apartments were being built and most construction projects stopped or delayed were virtually resumed. Newly built residential communities met the standards of excellent planning and design, high-quality construction and management, and the four new technologies were applied in increasingly more residential buildings. Environment development and management was kept enhancing. In terms of greening, over 250,000 sq. meters of public green space were newly created, and such projects as the third phase of Xujiahui Park and Ri Hui Green Space roughly took shape. Riverway renovation was carried out in an orderly way with completion of overall renovation of Puhuitang and the goal for this year set in sewage interception of Longhua Harbor water system achieved. Illegal buildings covering 100,000 sq. meters were demolished, including some located in residential communities and intersections, which imposed severe dangers on environment and daily life. Management of city environment and hygiene work were implemented in a regular and dynamic rather than temporary and static way. Our many years’ hard work for developing Xuhui into the National Sanitary District was inspected and accepted, moreover, Xuhui became the first one who earned the title of Model District in Environmental Protection among central districts in Shanghai. (4) IT application and other social undertakings were on the right track. The new edition of the portal named Shanghai Xuhui, which focused on online affair handling and public supervision, was successfully launched. Office automation was encouraged in government departments, all streets and towns.

Development of public health system was stepped up with launch of Contingency Plan of Xuhui District in Public Health. Community cultural activities were bustling and more cultural facilities were built such as Huang Dao Po Heritage Center. Efforts were made to enhance sports performance and invigorate community sports activities while exploring the new pattern of paying equal attention to sports and education.

Good results are also seen in civil defense, nationality, religion, overseas Chinese matters, Taiwan issues, foreign affairs and reception work. Compilation of Xuhui Yearbook (2003) was also finished. (5) Overall development of communities was further boosted. Community civilization was enhanced to become the national civilized district. Civilized communities, including 28 at municipal level and 20 at district level, were created, bringing the ratio of municipal-level civilized communities up to 50%. Longhua and Huajing also made notable progress in this regard. More resources were invested in improving community facilities. Emergent property maintenance center was improved and accountability implemented in property management, with integrated property management extended into 195 communities. Democracy was further implemented at grass-root level and development of self-governing residential committees was pressed ahead. New leaderships were elected in 332 residential committees, with 32% of them directly elected, higher than the municipal average. Community centers were set up in which professional workers were recruited to engage in community-based corrections.

Social forces were motivated to establish such services for senior people and the aged were encouraged to stay at home receiving services. For reducing crimes, maintaining good order, keeping social stability and enhancing mass satisfaction, well-planned actions and tough measures were taken to maintain good public order, as a result, the number of criminal cases were less than last year. The project of creating “safe community, residential complex and working units” was pressed ahead in an down-to-earth manner through mass participation, letters & calls, judicial assistance and contingency plan, etc. Positive measures were taken to address some repeated letters & calls concerning residence moving. Over 4,600 residents in Huajing transferred from rural to urban registration (Hukou) to propel urbanization process. In terms of security management, with the vertical leadership, the regional management played a major role to safeguard public security such as production security and fire prevention. Projects were carried out to ease traffic jam in some key areas. (7) The work of building up public government was in full swing. Various efforts were made to build up a transparent, effective and professional public government, including: 1. Put the district government under legal and democratic supervision exercised by the district people’s congress and CPPCC. Establish and implement six regulations to facilitate duty performance and promote participation in and deliberation of state affairs, for example, delegates of people’s congress and members of CPPCC take part in meetings, district government report to people’s congress and CPPCC on a regular basis, and delegates meet the district head. 2. Further specify administrative function of the government. Map out program for deepening restructuring of management on state-owned assets and define the new function exerted by state-owned assets management departments. Develop public financial budgets in advance to rationalize fiscal expenditures. Issue opinions on improving the system of “two-tier government and three-tier administration”, speeding up street economic development and reducing business costs to let public policies playing instructional role. 3. Conduct efficiency inspection and performance evaluation. Try out performance evaluation among government departments and push streets, towns and enterprises to make monthly evaluation on government works and residents committees on work of streets and towns. Tighten supervision on law enforcement and administrative efficiency to improve professional ethics. (8) Take initiatives to make public servants more professional, including training outstanding mid-aged and young public servants and inviting graduates from prestigious universities across the world back to work in the district government. Explore and pilot government employee system. All delegates, we have traversed an extraordinary course over the past year, in which people in our district devoted themselves to wining the battle against SARS while grasping opportunities to maintain high social and economic growth rate. We believe these hard-won achievements owe to both the wise leadership and joint efforts of all sides, including officials at all levels, especially at grassroots level, delegates of people’s congress and CPPCC and our mass people. Here, on behalf of Xuhui District government, I wish to show our great respect and heartfelt thanks to people in our district, to delegates of people’s congress and CPPCC, to the democratic parties, people’s organizations, business associations and people from all walks of life, to relevant departments, working units in the district, the PLA and armed police stationed, and to all comrades and friends who care about, help and support our development! Looking back into our work, we clearly realize that there are still many difficulties and problems facing us, including 1. It is hard to address the “bottleneck” problem arising out of district development in a short time. With rapid economic growth, the cost of land and management in our district is relatively high and expected to go up, imposing difficulties on further improving investment environment. 2. There is still something to be improved in the development. Not very reasonable planning and layout and too fast population introduction put more burden and pressure on public facilities and social administration. 3. A big portion of economic growth is generated by resource exploit. Our land resources are now very limited due to large-scale development and construction while technology has not yet played major role. We face increasing pressure on keeping social stability and creating more job opportunities during the course of district development and industrial restructuring. 4. Government efficiency is relatively low. Rules and regulations are not enforced effectively. More vigor can be injected into the government and some government staff can become more energetic and innovative. We definitely will take effective measures to seek solutions for all these problems and difficulties. 2. Overall targets and principles for work in 20042004 is very crucial for the major economic targets set in the tenth Five-Year plan to be reached ahead of schedule, for reform to be deepened, opening intensified and development pushed in the spirits of the 16th National Congress of the CPC and the Third Plenary Session of the Sixteenth Central Committee, and also for the strategy such as thriving via science and education, sustainable development and reinvigorating China by attracting talents to be further implemented.

Major tasks in 2004 According to the above-mentioned requirements and principles, focus will be put on ten tasks this year:(1). Intensify the guiding role of planning and further improve town/district functions. Bearing the concepts of putting people first and sustainable development, the district government shall focus on overall design and reasonable planning of the district rather than rush for quick success and instant benefits to improve functions and increase comprehensive competition edge. Acting in the spirits of the municipal planning meeting and in accordance with the overall planning of urban area in Shanghai, the district government shall revise the strategic planning of Xuhui for improvement and step up the pace of mapping out the detailed planning for some key area, for example, making a well-designed program for the heritage conservation area north from Zhaojiabang Road, quickening the development of historic buildings in a protective way to fully play their existing and potential advantages, completing the planning of surrounding area of South Shanghai Railway Station and setting out to attract investments and develop functions, inviting prestigious designers to conduct research on the layout of the Fenglin Medical Park, attracting customers and business opportunities around the Transit Line 4 and 9 stations, and planning the Xuhui Section of the Huangpu River on a high starting point.

(2). Step up industrial restructuring and enhance the quality of economic operation. Should industries not be developed in a sustainable way the city would become spiritless because the regional economy is based on industries, therefore, according to the established strategy of invigorating Shanghai through science and education, the district government shall take into full consideration the higher business costs and rich resources in science, education, culture and health sector in Xuhui, and develop some intelligent projects with great value added potential to shape a structure under which high tech industries play a pioneering role, urban industries are centered around and service industries are expanded in an all-round way on the occasion of transfer and update of international industries, integration of industries in the Yangtze Delta Area and intensified efforts of Shanghai to become a metropolitan city.

Make major efforts to develop modern service industry. The district government shall step up service industry restructuring and make Xuhui the center of modern service enterprises in the south west of Shanghai because it is essential for the future economy of Xuhui to be flourishing, especially introduce more intelligence-oriented enterprises such as law firms, accounting firms and IT service companies to maintain prosperity of the sub city center, moreover, create more business opportunities in the surrounding area of South Shanghai Railway Station and all transit lines and increase categories of service offered, invigorate community businesses to meet various needs of people, and explore innovative ways to push industrialization of education, health, culture and sports sectors.
