New Hubei head sets goal of pros­per­ity

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA -

Jiang Chao­liang vowed to be an “hon­est and self-dis­ci­plined” ex­am­ple for of­fi­cials in Hubei prov­ince as part of his ef­fort to lead the prov­ince to­ward mod­er­ate pros­per­ity af­ter he was ap­pointed as the prov­ince’s top of­fi­cial.

“The Com­mu­nist Party of China Cen­tral Com­mit­tee’s de­ci­sion to ap­point me as sec­re­tary of the CPC Hubei Provin­cial Com­mit­tee shows it trusts me. I will live up to the ex­pec­ta­tions of peo­ple in Hubei,” Jiang said on Satur­day in the provin­cial cap­i­tal, Wuhan, where the ap­point­ment was an­nounced.

He was also ap­pointed a mem­ber of the body’s Stand­ing Com­mit­tee.

“It is an honor for me to come back to Hubei, where I once worked,” he said. The 59-year-old worked as deputy gover­nor of the prov­ince from Septem­ber 2002 to May 2004. While vow­ing to main­tain a high de­gree of unity with the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, Jiang also said he aims to make Hubei the first prov­ince in Cen­tral China to achieve mod­er­ate pros­per­ity by 2020.

He said he will fol­low the “eight-point code”, pub­lished by the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee in 2012, to cut bu­reau­cracy and main­tain close ties with the peo­ple.

“Those seek­ing per­sonal gains in my name or that of my rel­a­tives in Hubei will be pre­vented and pun­ished ac­cord­ing to the law,” he added.

Jiang spent most of his ca­reer in the bank­ing sec­tor be­fore he was trans­ferred to North­east China’s Jilin prov­ince in Au­gust 2014 as deputy sec­re­tary of the CPC Jilin Provin­cial Com­mit­tee. He was also ap­pointed as the prov­ince’s gover­nor in Oc­to­ber of the same year.

Jiang’s first job was with Agri­cul­tural Bank of China in 1981. He moved on to China’s cen­tral bank, Peo­ple’s Bank of China, in 1996, work­ing in var­i­ous po­si­tions, in­clud­ing pres­i­dent of the Shen­zhen and Guangzhou branches in Guang­dong prov­ince.

At the end of 2011, he re­turned to ABC as chair­man and also sec­re­tary-gen­eral of its Party com­mit­tee.
