[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.

(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 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.

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. Meanwhile, the laboratories of the Public Health College should be open to the Disease Prevention and Control Center of Xuhui District. Through the cooperation, the intelligence and the technologies in the Public Health College can be fully utilized to gradually improve the comprehensive qualities of the medical personnel in Xuhui District. 3. Science and Technology Research Project Combined with the actual situation of Xuhui District and based on the mutual-benefit cooperation principle, this project will exploit the advantages of the powerful research force provided by the tertiary education institutes as well as the science and technology institutions. With a focus on the research and utilization of application subjects, research will meanwhile be conducted on community health services and disease prevention and control. Sponsorship will also be available for critical research subjects. The year 2005 will hopefully see a surge of pioneers in the subjects of community health services and disease prevention and control. V. Specific Measures (I) Strengthen the leadership over the building of public health system. The District Government incorporates the building of public health system into the master plan of Xuhui District’s national economic and social development, and the supervisory leaders organize relevant responsible units to coordinate relevant matters and supervise the implementation. The District Health Bureau sets up the work group headed by main leaders, whose members are from functional sections and offices and take charge of specific matters. (II) Reform the investment and financing mechanism in public health. While funds are guaranteed for public health projects, reform the investment and financing mechanism in public health, form the pattern of diversified investments (focusing on government investments, revitalization of stock assets, social investments, etc), guarantee the operation expenses of such public health core businesses as disease monitoring, cure of infectious diseases and health enforcement and ensure that the income of public health technicians is not less than the average income of the professional technicians of medical and public health institutions.

(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.

(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.

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. Economy in streets and towns were flourishing with total revenue of 1.04 billion yuan, up 47.3% over the previous year, providing solid financial support for strengthening community building and management. Self-employed and private ownership generated total revenue of 690 million yuan, up 63.7% over the previous year, marking the relatively rapid growth of non-public economies. 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. The program called “Make one million households access to internet” was initiated in many communities, aiming at bringing more conveniences to residents. Big progress was made in modernization of basic education. Action Plan for Education Reform to Modernize Basic Education System in the District was fully promoted and Three-year Plan for Reinforcing Development of Junior Schools was implemented. Initiatives were taken to set up experimental or model schools, which can drive the overall quality of middle, primary and play schools to be improved. Bases for training schoolmasters with honor class were established to improve education leadership system. The 9th Asian Pacific Annual Meeting of UNESCO was successfully hosted, marking a further step in international exchange. Community health service system was further improved with health service centers unveiled in 13 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. The construction of national-level sustainable experimental area and national science promotion demonstration area was pushed. More success was achieved in population and family planning, filing system and “two advocates” with many honored titles granted. “The 10th Five-year Plan” for the development of woman and children was executed in a positive way to further protect legal interests of woman and children. 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. A full play was given to the role of residents’ congress and consultation mechanism for community public affairs took initial shape, greatly enhancing self-governing awareness. Such projects as Well-being program and Rallying Force program were carried out to promote spiritual civilization in communities. A fairly complete community education system was established through theme-based education program and community schools. Community work meeting was held in which old concept of modern community was extended while new were proposed. (6) Social security and public safety system was further improved. Efforts were intensified to promote employment and to establish social accountability system for this end. 30,000 jobs were additionally posted, 50% more than expected, and the registered unemployment rate was kept under 5%. Employment service centers were set up and run in a market-oriented way, mainly targeting those being granted maximum allowance while still had the capability and desire to work. Measures were taken to encourage those unemployed or covered by pension and medical insurance paid by former employers to get jobs or establish their own businesses. Social Assistance Administration was expanded to offer more help and aid to community residents.

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.
