Luo pointed out that the Communist Party of China(CPC) Central Committee and the State Council of the People's Republic of China, Sichuan Provincial Committee of the CPC and Provincial Government, and Chengdu Municipal Committee of the CPC and Municipal Government attached great importance to the preparatory work for the Chengdu WUG Summer. Currently, the preparatory work of the Chengdu WUG Summer has moved from a steady job and is breaking into a sprint. It's necessary to carry out the spirit of the plenary session of the Sichuan Provincial Promotion and Coordination Working Group for the Chengdu WUG Summer and the first plenary session of the Chengdu WUG Executive Committee, further enhance the sense of urgency and responsibility in conducting preparatory work, and keep a close eye on the key work of venue construction, event preparation, publicity planning, and so on, aiming to complete the preparatory work and put on a world-class, successful Chengdu WUG Summer.
Luo emphasized that, in accordance with the relevant guidelines and requirements of the World Health Organization and the General Administration of Sport of China on the holding of sports events during epidemic situations, wearing masks is a necessary measure to take while continuing to develop and prepare for the Chengdu WUG Summer. The implementation of key tasks shall be promoted in sequence.
Firstly, great efforts shall be made to advance the construction of venues. We should reorganize the construction progress of the venues, re-examine any problems, and promote the construction goals to ensure that all venue facility construction and renovation are carried out on schedule. In view of the current high temperatures and rainy weather, we will effectively investigate the hidden dangers of water-logging, strengthen the safeguards, strictly supervise the project quality, and ensure safety across all construction sites.
Secondly, the planning and implementation of major events should go ahead without impediment. We will refine and perfect the plans for events such as the "One-year Countdown" series events and "Open Call for Creative Ideas". Fully considering the themes of the centenary anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China and promoting red culture, we will step up the improvement of the torch relay plan and also enhance our telling of the Party's stories, of the accomplishments of the reform and opening-up era, of China's recent fight against COVID-19, as well as of Sichuan and Chengdu. These would be the major themes of the publicity campaigns of the Chengdu WUG Summer.
Thirdly, the competition regulations and overall schedule should be prepared to an exacting standard. We will pay close attention to accelerating the planning of venue operation, clarifying the municipal and district-level work responsibilities, improving the organizational structure of the venue centers, strengthening the communication and cooperation between various competition projects, finding and solving related problems in a timely manner, and carefully devising and holding demonstration venue simulation exercises.
Finally, the relevant requirements of the FISU (International University Sports Federation) should be actively implemented. We will proceed with the preparation of the Overall Plan; strengthen the reporting to and communication with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council PRC and the FUSC (Federation of University Sports of China); and effectively advance all key tasks in an orderly manner.
Luo demanded that all departments of the Executive Committee pay close attention to the implementation of targeted tasks, and making more efforts to press on with the work. Luo also called for everyone to form strong, efficient working patterns when it comes to operations and promotion. It's necessary to further smooth the communication and coordination mechanisms not only to ensure effective optimal communication with the relevant national ministries, FUSC, and related provincial departments; but also to reinforce overall coordination, further clarify responsibilities and tasks, pay close attention to implementation, enhance supervision, quickly and effectively discover and solve questions, work together to complete the preparatory work for the Chengdu WUG Summer, and live up to the expectations for Chengdu of the Communist Party of China(CPC) and the State Council of the People's Republic of China, and Sichuan Provincial Committee of the CPC and Sichuan Provincial Government
