Wang Zhong pointed out that the human civilization originated from rivers. Water is the source of life, the essential factor of production, and the basis for eco-environment. Implementation of the river chief system is an important decision made by the party central committee led by President Xi Jinping, a practical measure to follow the important views of President Xi Jinping on environment-friendly society construction, a prevailing reality to promote quality development of the economy and society in the new era, and a critical measure to meet the people's requirements for a better life. Departments at all levels are required to increase the political awareness, diligently study and understand the important views of President Xi Jinping on environment-friendly society construction, follow the concept of green development, and conscientiously protect the environment, put into practice the river chief system, so as to comprehensively resolve water-related issues, improve the water quality and eco-environment, and construct a beautiful city.
Wang Zhong said that a problem-based approach should be adopted to take custom measures for different places. Salient topics related to insufficient sewage water treatment, rural non-point source pollution, urban and rural living sewage, and wastes must be resolved to comprehensively enhance the water resource protection. Campaigns must be launched to educate and raise awareness among schools, agencies, communities, villages, enterprises, Internet, and families, to call for the participation of the masses in this cause. A sound system that features all-department and all-region association must be established, to implement comprehensive management, where each has clearly assigned responsibilities. By adopting the goal oriented mechanism and the complete responsibility system, challenging but feasible targets by phase must be prepared to ensure the long-term management and enhancement of the river and the implementation of the river chief system.
