On the morning of March 2, China Minmetals holds a video conference on coordinating the prevention and control of COVID-19 and the redeployment of work and production resumption. Mr. Tang Fuping, China Minmetals' Party Group Secretary and Chairman, and Head of the Leading Group on the Prevention and Control of COVID-19 Epidemic, attended the conference, and Mr. Guo Wenqing, China Minmetals' President and Deputy Party Group Secretary, and Deputy Head of the Leading Group on the Prevention and Control of COVID-19 Epidemic, presided over the conference.

At the conference, Tang Fuping said that the purpose of this conference is to earnestly implement the guiding principles embodied in General Secretary Xi Jinping's speeches, and fully implement the policies and plans made by the CPC Central Committee, the State Council and the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC). What's more, this conference aims to arrange the work for epidemic prevention and control as well as resumption of work and production for the days to come, and bring together all officials and staff to secure a victory in the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic to attain the targets and goals already set for 2020. At the conference, Tang, on behalf of the Party Group of China Minmetals, said that I want to pay tribute to every person serving at the frontline of epidemic prevention and control as well as resumption of work and production, and extend sincere greetings to the staff infected and their families. For the work for epidemic prevention and control as well as resumption of work and production, Tang explicitly put forward five requirements:

First, we should lay stress on political stance and raise political awareness to resolutely implement the guiding principles embodied in General Secretary Xi Jinping's speeches as well as the policies and plans made by the CPC Central Committee. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, General Secretary Xi Jinping paid great attention to this issue and made a number of instructions, leading the Party, the Military and the people of all ethnic groups in China to wage a war against the COVID-19 epidemic. Moreover, Xi presided over a number of special meetings of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee to timely make strategies for epidemic prevention and control, and put forward the general principle of firming up confidence, working together and taking scientific and precise policies. At the last meeting of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, General Secretary Xi Jinping stressed that the efforts for epidemic prevention and control shall not be slackened, and the work for economic and social development shall be accelerated. Xi, by making important speeches and instructions, charted the course for and create the pivotal underpinning for epidemic prevention and control. We, as the members of China Minmetals, need to gain a good command of the guiding principles embodied in Xi's speeches and substantively raise our political stance. We should keep firmly in mind the need to maintain political integrity, think in big-picture terms, follow the leadership core, and keep in alignment.

We should foster stronger confidence in the path, theory, system, and culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics. We should resolutely uphold General Secretary Xi Jinping's core position on the CPC Central Committee and in the Party as a whole, and resolutely uphold the CPC Central Committee's authority and its centralized, unified leadership. We must enhance the philosophy of being One Family, think in big-picture terms and resolutely follow the unified direction, coordination and deployment by the CPC Central Committee. What's more, we must be clear that people's interests must come first and stay true to the vision of people-centered development. We must keep in mind that "life is of paramount importance and epidemic prevention and control is the order and the responsibility", put our people's lives and health in the first place and be fully responsible for our staff. We must be soberminded that the efforts for epidemic prevention and control are at the most critical moment. For this reason, we must firm up our belief of winning the war against the epidemic and we must refrain from relaxing our vigilance or the idea of winning by a fluke. We must adhere to the standards and the thinking applied in wartime and never stop our fighting until a complete victory. We need to understand the urgency and importance of coordinating resumption of work and production. Outside the major areas of epidemic prevention and control, we must resume work and restore the order of production and life. The reason is that this plays an important role in providing adequate material support for epidemic prevention and control, ensuring people's lives and social stability, achieving the established targets and goals of economic and social development for 2020, completing the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects and achieving the 13th Five-Year Plan and China's opening up as well as a stable global economy as a whole.

Second, we should emphasize organizational leadership and implement key tasks to ensure solid progress in epidemic prevention and control as well as resumption of work and production. Against the backdrop of the challenging environment by the outbreak, China Minmetals, by closely following the policies and plans made by the CPC Central Committee, obeyed the order to respond swiftly and act quickly to deliver a solid outcome of the measures taken for epidemic prevention and control as well as resumption of work and production. 1) It is required to set up four mechanisms of command, implementation, hygiene control and mobilization for epidemic prevention and control; set up the mechanism of a top-down and efficient command; set up the mechanism of clear division of responsibility and grid management; set up the mechanism of hygiene control featuring strict entry and thorough disinfection; and set up the mechanism of positive guidance and motivation. 2) We should shoulder responsibilities of providing patient treatment, aid in construction and medical supplies. The staff of the hospital system of China Minmetals served at the frontline, demonstrating the noble spirit of "rescuing the patient is the due responsibility of a doctor". Design and construction enterprises of China Minemtals rushed to the site of medical facilities.

MCC, as a pillar enterprise in design and construction, by making full use of its strengths, undertook the design, reconstruction and new construction of over 20 hospitals in many places. China Minmetals acted promptly to provide medical supplies for epidemic prevention and control, fully demonstrating its efforts of thinking in big-picture terms and working together. 3) It is necessary to coordinate epidemic prevention and control as well as resumption of work and production. China Minmetals needs to have a good understanding of the production and operation of leading enterprises, and carry out market analysis and judgement, and conduct epidemic risk evaluation and countermeasures. The directly-managed enterprises of China Minmetals must arrange the schedule of production and operation in a reasonable manner and sort out the key risks to actively coordinate the efforts at different levels. As of February 25, up to 93% of the enterprises at all levels of China Minmetals resumed work, making them a leading position in resumption of work and production by the central SOEs.

Third, we should lay stress on targeted measures and details to secure a decisive victory in epidemic prevention and control. All departments of various enterprises need to ensure a more thoughtful plan, a more careful arrangement and a more efficient implementation, with priority still given to epidemic prevention and control, to win the war. 1) We are required to continue to give play to the role of the Epidemic Prevention and Control Office as Wartime Command Center, achieving a unified direction, arrangement and deployment; 2) continue to ensure the division of responsibility of enterprises at various levels to fully shoulder responsibilities; 3) continue to accomplish the most difficult tasks at the frontline, respond swiftly, fight immediately and win certainly; 4) continue to strengthen the targeted management of "people under five categories" to put the health of the public at the first place; 5) continue to strengthen the management of key areas, sites and supplies to ensure the across-the-board epidemic prevention and control; and 6) continue to move toward the systematic and long-lasting mechanism and constantly improve the capacity in emergency management and response.

Fourth, we should stress the coordinated plan and the target-oriented approach to greatly advance resumption of work and production in a systematic manner. The year 2020 is the deadline for completing the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects and for attaining the 13th Five-year Plan, and is the deadline for China Minmetals to fully improve its competitiveness and secure a decisive victory in accomplishing "Three Steps and Quadruple". We need to take the initiative to shoulder the responsibility of production while ensuring the efforts for epidemic prevention and control. 1) We are required to strengthen the target-oriented approach to fully accomplish various tasks in production and operation; 2) strengthen the safeguards for health to fully consolidate the foundation for resumption of work and production; 3) strengthen the guidance based on division of areas and classification to advance resumption of work and production by using one-to-one solutions for enterprises; 4) strengthen market analysis and judgement to accurately seize the crisis and the opportunity; 5) sort out policies more intensely to make full use of them; 6) strengthen the care for our staff to ensure duty management and care for staff; 7) strengthen fundamental management to enhance our capacity in fending off risks; and 8) focus on key issues to ensure solid progress in three critical battles.

Fifth, we should lay stress on political strength and stand ready to shoulder responsibility to give play to the role of the Party Group and the leaders. 1) All leaders at various levels shall face the challenges squarely and rise to the difficulties. This battle against the epidemic is the best moment to test if the leaders keep the mission in mind, and a comprehensive test of political integrity, sense of responsibility and competence of the leaders. 2) The Party Branch and Party Members at the grass-root level need to play the role of wartime fortress and model. The Party Branch at the grass-root level shall act with resolve to serve at the frontline of epidemic prevention and control as well as resumption of work and production, demonstrating the role of the Party Group as wartime fortress. 3) The publicity shall focus on positive guidance and energy. We shall further improve our awareness of the policies made by the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, ensure the requirements made by China Minmetals reach our staff timely and accurately, and raise the staff's awareness to protect themselves and confidence to win the battle. 4) We should firmly oppose all pointless formalities and bureaucratism and improve our capacity for practical work. We are required to substantively enhance our sense of responsibility and sense of urgency, and put an end to "Battle in the form of Digital Numbers or Sheets" and other pointless formalities and bureaucratism, and let the leaders and employees put more energy into the frontline of epidemic prevention and control as well as resumption of work and production.

For the implementation of the guiding principles of this conference, Guo Wenqing put forward three requirements:

Firstly, we should fully perform our duties. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, China Minmetals closely followed the policies and plans made by the CPC Central Committee. China Minmetals organized the Meeting of the CPC Members, the meeting of China Minmetals' President and the special video conference on scientific prevention and control of the epidemic as well as orderly resumption of work and production. Moreover, China Minmetals took a holistic approach to make plans for epidemic prevention and control as well as resumption of work and production, delivering precise, early and fast moves. For now, the efforts for epidemic prevention and control of China Minmetals are generally stable. The enterprises at various levels, at this critical moment of ensuring epidemic prevention and control while maintaining growth, must focus on the key fields and take a scientific and precise approach to ensure the implementation of the task at every stage of work. The efforts for epidemic prevention and control shall focus on the main battlefield: The situation of epidemic prevention and control in Wuhan and Hubei province remains serious. For China, the victory nationwide hinges on the victory in Wuhan and Hubei. For China Minmetals, the Victory by MCC hinges on the Victory by Wuhan Subsidiaries. This is also true to MCC and China Minmetal. The efforts for resuming work also need to focus on key areas: the enterprises in other regions shall focus on the efforts for resuming work and production, and restoring the order of production. We must continue to implement "one-to-one solutions for enterprises as well as classified instructions and precise policies" to carry out a reasonable and efficient plan for resumption of work and production. A problem-oriented approach shall be taken for our business system featured by "four beams and eight columns". Enterprises of metal mining that should start production must ensure a stable production and the required reduction in cost shall be done with force. Enterprises of metallurgy shall deliver tangible efforts for their projects to raise the work resumption rate. For the enterprises in Wuhan facing the problem of manpower shortage, manpower from other subsidiaries in other cities should be relocated to Wuhan. The same is applied to the subsidiaries in China and the subsidiaries outside China. Enterprises of trade logistics, finance and real estate that shall control risks must do everything and seize the opportunity of expanding clients. China Minmetals must take a holistic and coordinated approach to make full use of the strength of our internal market with 100 billion yuan to attract new markets, thus energizing resumption of work and production in the whole industry chain.

Second, we should fully perform the duty of overcoming formalities. Formalities and bureaucratism are the biggest enemies in performing duties. Waiting for the plans made by the superior level and lacking drive are the manifestation of not performing duties. Doing work superficailly is the manifestation of formalities. The fruits China Minmetals and MCC have today can not be obtained without our tangible and lasting efforts. Formalities are the poison stopping the development of enterprises and there is no room for formalities. History has proven that our ideological line shall be enhanced at any time. Leaders of China Minmetals shall have a clue as how to make a new structural adjustment after winning the battle, and address the disadvantages in the mechanism featuring excessive and dispersed market penetration based on our loss control in the past few years. We need to further our solid actions in the integration in the process of leveraging the advantages and creating new advantages. Leaders and the CPC members shall always serve at the frontline and shoulder responsibility at this critical moment. The central SOEs are the pillars that should stand out to demonstrate the spirit of the CPC at the frontline of China Minmetals and MCC.

Third, we should fully perform our duties. In the battle against the epidemic, our success in epidemic prevention and control with the help of so many resources and within such a short period, and the recognition of international community in this regard owns to the strong leadership of General Secretary Xi Jinping and the strengths of socialism with Chinese characteristics. Our country and our enterprises are like no other and cannot be defeated. We are bound to beat the COVID-19 outbreak and we still have a long way to go. We must be clear that economic and social development is a dynamic circulation system, not allowing a lasting standstill. Development is the key to solving all problems and the underpinning for an enterprise.

We must also be clear that difficulties coexist with opportunities and the same is true to crisis and challenges. There will be undoubtedly great opportunities emerging after winning the battle and a new marathon is about to begin. China will introduce a series of favorable policies in the fields of infrastructure, peoples' living standards as well as energy conservation and environmental protection. All these fields are the potential points of growth for enterprises to move toward high-quality development. China Minmetals must keep its target of production and operation of 2020 unchanged, and its subsidiaries shall, with strong confidence, great tenacity and unswerving determination, serve at the frontline and act as the propeller of stable growth. We shall keep a close eye on market opportunities and do a good job in business strategy and resource allocation to supplement the budget schedule left behind. We also need to respond to the call of the times, use reform and innovation to strengthen areas of weakness, fully tap our traditional strengths and move faster to foster innovation strengths to achieve generally stable growth while making further progress and improving quality. In the battle against the COVID-19 outbreak, we shall earnestly fulfill our mission to truly live up to people's expectations.
