On the morning of July 17, Mr. Guo Wenqing, China Minmetals' President and Deputy Party Group Secretary and MCC Chairman, presided over a Special Meeting of China Minmetals' President. In the meeting, Guo listened to the report about the work safety during the flood season and deployed relevant safety precautions.

In the meeting, it is considered that there is an abnormal climate in some regions of China, leading to increasing heavy rainfalls, disasters and floods. These are daunting challenges confronting some construction enterprises and their project teams of China Minmetals. For this reason, all enterprises under China Minmetals took this situation very seriously and acted swiftly, making the safety precautions of China Minmetals generally stable. Currently, the flood control across the country is at a critical moment. Because of its broad scope of businesses, China Minmetals is faced with severe challenges in the flood control, thus requiring full preparations of China Minmetals.

In light of the safety precautions during the flood control, five requirements were put forward in the meeting:

First, we should enhance our political stance to earnestly implement the important instructions and guiding principles given by General Secretary Xi Jinping. The Party Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) attaches great importance to the efforts for flood control and disaster relief. On June 28 and July 12, General Secretary Xi Jinping made important instructions for the efforts of flood control and disaster relief. In the meeting, Guo Wenqing said that we at China Minmetals shall study and keep in mind the important instructions given by General Secretary Xi Jinping, and grasp the "Three Essences", namely we shall put people and lives first, and do our utmost to safeguard the safety of people's lives and properties; serve at the frontline, define responsibilities; and stand ready to shoulder responsibilities. The State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) issued the Notice on Ensuring the Emergency Preparedness for Flood Control and Preventing the Disasters and Incidents in various Forms, and organized a video conference of work safety for the central state-owned enterprises (SOEs) to put forward the requirements for flood control. As the pillars, the central SOEs shall come forward in times of distress. For this reason, China Minmetals shall firmly follow and earnestly implement the important instructions made by General Secretary Xi Jinping and the policies and plans made by the Party Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, and ensure the implementation of various requirements of the superiors.

Second, we should shoulder primary responsibility. China Minmetals has a distinctively clear corporate management philosophy. Therefore, as the mainstay of the enterprise, the leaders of the enterprises at various levels shall shoulder primary responsibilities and fully perform political responsibility, economic responsibility and moral responsibility, and devote themselves into their posts, serve at the frontline and come forward at the most critical moment.

Third, we should highlight the priorities in the management to keep the initiative firmly in hand. The enterprises at various levels shall be proactive, instead of being reactive, and use their strengths to the following work: (1) enhance the inspection of key areas, key industries and domains, key enterprises and weak links; (2) strengthen risk control of the areas such as river banks and the places prone to geological disasters caused by mountain torrents; (3) intensify the safety precautions of the key industries during the flood season, such as mining, smelting process, construction and hazardous chemical; (4) notably ensure the precautions for geological disasters caused by mountain torrents, mine flood in heavy raining and dam break of a tailing reservoir; (5) reinforce the efforts of inspecting the subsectional and subdivisional work with great danger to resolutely guard against foundation pit collapse, foundation collapse, slope collapse, landslide, debris flow and other accidents.

Fourth, we should strengthen the implementation of various measures. During the flood season, we shall strengthen the shifts, maintain smooth communication and ensure that the leaders serve at the post and 24-hour inspection by shift is under way. All these aim to ensure that the danger is timely detected, handled and reported. And the leaders of the enterprises and the leaders in charge of work safety shall serve at the post and stand ready to take orders. Moreover, we need to strengthen the emergency response plan and the preparation of supplies, and enhance the monitoring and early warning. In light of the specific conditions and circumstances, we shall develop the emergency response plan accordingly and utilize emergency rescue drills to verify the operability and practicability of the emergency response plan, in an effort to ensure the smooth efforts at every aspect of the work. In addition, we need to reinforce the emergency supplies and stock necessary materials such as emergency rescue devices, equipment, stone and cement.

Fifth, we should shoulder the due obligations of our enterprise, one of the central SOEs, to participate in social rescue. While ensuring the precautions on our part, we shall shoulder social responsibility and contribute our strengths. And in accordance with the united instructions of local Party committees and governments, we shall leverage our strengths in terms of talent, technology and equipment to play an active role in emergency response and disaster relief. The leaders assigned for poverty alleviation shall work with local governments to actively serve at the frontline of flood control and emergency response to jointly safeguard social stability and the safety of people's life and properties.

In the meeting, it is emphasized that we shall continue to improve the Party conduct, and select and promote the staff on the basis of their performance. Leaders shall refrain from talking big but being practical, and shall polish their skills in the work to lead the enterprise to a path of long-term, stable and sustainable development.

The leaders of China Minmetals, including Liu Caiming, Zhang Zhaoxiang, Jiao Jian, Lu Weidong, Ren Zhufeng and Wang Shilei, attended the meeting. And the leaders, from relevant divisions of China Minmetals, directly-managed enterprises and affiliated enterprises, attended the meeting in person, or via video conference.
