We must strive to integrate the world’s most advanced management technologies and experience.
After seeing the general secretary, field construction personnel came to say hello to the general secretary. Xi Jinping shook hands with them and thanked them for their hard work. Xi Jinping pointed out that socialism is dry out. Every participant in the construction of the new airport is participating in history and witnessing history.

On the morning of the 24th, Xi Jinping visited Wukesong Sports Center, the Capital Stadium, the administrative sub-center of the Beijing City Center, and the Grand Canal Forest Park.
Wukesong Sports Center is the venue for the Beijing Olympic Winter Games ice hockey. Xi Jinping combined sandbox and multi-media in the hall, listened to the overall planning of the stadiums in Beijing, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou. He then went to the platform to watch the ice hockey field, watch the youth ice hockey training, and then went into the infield to watch the teenagers’ queues. Xi Jinping pointed out that the planning, design, and construction of stadiums should draw attention to the advanced experience of foreign countries, and at the same time strengthen our own technological accumulation and technological innovation. Some venues must be repeatedly used, comprehensively utilized, and lastingly utilized.

On the afternoon of the 24th, Xi Jinping hosted the symposium on the preparation of the Beijing city planning and construction and the Beijing Olympic Winter Games in the Beijing Hall of the Great Hall of the People. Secretary of the Beijing Municipal Committee Guo Jinlong and the director of the General Administration of Sport Sui Zhongwen reported the relevant work and Xi Jinping delivered an important speech.
Xi Jinping pointed out that urban planning plays an important leading role in urban development. Beijing urban planning needs to consider in depth the question of “building a capital and how to build a capital city.” It should grasp the strategic positioning, spatial structure, and factor allocation, adhere to the overall planning of urban and rural areas, and implement the “multiple regulation” to form a plan. Zhang Lantu strived to enhance the core functions of the capital and ensure that the service support capacity is compatible with the strategic positioning of the city. The population, resources, and environment are in harmony with the strategic positioning of the city. The urban layout is consistent with the strategic positioning of the city and it is constantly moving towards building a world-class harmonious and livable environment. The goal of the capital goes forward. The overall plan has statutory effect after being approved by legal procedures, and it is necessary to firmly safeguard the seriousness and authority of the plan.
Xi Jinping stressed that easing Beijing’s non-capital functions is a “nice nose” for urban planning and construction in Beijing. We must further unify our thinking on this issue, revolving around and retreating, studying and formulating supporting policies, and forming an effective incentive and guiding mechanism. We must look long-term, long-term plans, and move steadily forward. Beijing’s development must focus on sustainability, work hard on transforming the driving force, innovating models, and elevating the level, exerting the advantages of science and technology and human resources, and striving to create new heights for development. It is necessary to take the resource and environmental carrying capacity as hard constraints, determine the total population ceiling, and define the ecological red line and urban development boundary. Concerning outstanding problems such as air pollution and traffic jams, systematic analysis and comprehensive measures should be applied. The history and culture of Beijing is a great testimony to the long history of the Chinese civilization. It must be meticulously protected, highlighting the overall value of Beijing’s history and culture, and strengthening the urban features of the “Capital style, the charm of the ancient capital, and the style of the times”.
Xi Jinping pointed out that urban planning and construction work is good or bad, and ultimately it must be measured by the satisfaction of the people. To uphold the people’s city as a people, take the problems most concerned by Beijing residents as the direction, and solve the problems of overpopulation, traffic congestion, high housing prices, and air pollution, and propose a comprehensive strategy for solving problems. It is necessary to improve the system and improve policies, continuously improve the level of people’s livelihood protection and the provision of public services, and enhance the people’s sense of acquisition.
Xi Jinping emphasized that the Beijing Winter Olympics is a major landmark event in China and an important opportunity to display the national image, promote national development, and boost the national spirit. It has a strong traction for the coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei. We must do our best to complete each preparation.
Xi Jinping pointed out that the green, shared, open and honest Olympic-doing concept is a manifestation of the new development concept in the preparatory work for the Beijing Olympic Winter Games, and it must go through the entire process of preparing the work. Green Olympics must adhere to ecological priorities, resource conservation, and environmental friendliness to lay a beautiful Chinese background for the Winter Olympics. To share the Olympic Games, we must adhere to the joint participation, joint efforts, and enjoy together, so that the Winter Olympic Games will have a good social effect. To open the Olympic Games, we must adhere to the world, the future, and the modernization so that the Winter Olympics will become a booster for opening up. In order to be honest and clean, we must diligently save money, eliminate corruption, increase efficiency, adhere to zero tolerance for stimulant issues, and make the Winter Olympics as pure and as clean as ice and snow. To make good use of the socialist system, we can concentrate our efforts on the political advantages of major events, and we must give full play to the role of market mechanisms and social forces. The various competition areas of the Beijing Olympic Winter Games should be compared with the overall plan for the preparation of work, deepening the detailed planning of venues and infrastructure, respecting the laws, and stressing science. All construction and renovation projects must strive to become quality projects. At the same time, we must fully consider the follow-up use and not greed.
Xi Jinping stressed that to improve the level of winter sports competition in China, it is necessary to plan early and continue to advance. The combination of length and time requires a long-term, expanded winter sports coverage, solidarity for the masses of winter sports, and a focus on competitions to concentrate on increasing technical and tactical levels. In the project, it is necessary to make up for weaknesses, to give priority to guarantee, focus on the development of advantageous projects and potential advantages projects, and to actively develop general projects and new projects, and quickly carry out lack of sports programs to promote the all-round development of China’s ice and snow sports. In the talent team, it is necessary to insist on athletes and coaches to grasp together, not only to urgently need emergency services, but also to pick up alternate teams, both to introduce and to go out, not only to improve the level of skills and tactics but also to grasp the ideological will to temper.
Xi Jinping pointed out that the organization, logistics support, external liaison, publicity and promotion, market development, social mobilization, and other operational guarantees and service work must be systematically designed and promoted. We must actively use modern science and technology, especially information technology, big data and other technologies to improve the running guarantee and service efficiency of the games. The Beijing Winter Olympics Working Leading Group and the Beijing Winter Olympic Games Organizing Committee must earnestly perform their duties and do a good job of organizing and coordinating. All relevant central departments must give their support. Beijing Municipality and Hebei Province should be responsible for grading, taking the initiative, strengthening the convergence, and cooperating with each other.
Wang Huning, Liu Yandong, Li Zhanshu and comrades in charge of the relevant departments of the Central Government accompanied the inspections. Xu Kuangdi attended the forum.
