Immediately after the NPC and CPPCC annual sessions, Yuchai Group ushered in a great event in the democratic and political life of workers on March 16--4th Session of the 17th Workers Congress of Yuchai Group. Members of the presidium such as Chairman Yan Ping and President Gu Tangsheng of Yuchai Group and Wu Qiwei, general manager of Yuchai Machinery Co., Ltd. (Yuchai Machinery), as well as over 700 worker representatives from Yuchai Group's departments and subsidiaries, got together to seek how to continue advancing the second startup of Yuchai Group in depth under the new economic normal to ensure the sustained and healthy development of the enterprise. Zhong Ying, deputy director of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of Yulin and Gu Xiaoning, vice chairman of the Yulin Federation of Trade Unions extended congratulations and gave instruction. Guo Deming, deputy Party secretary of Yuchai Group, chaired the congress.
The worker congress is the basic form of participating in democratic management, democratic supervision and democratic decision making. At the congress, the worker representatives attentively listened to and deliberated on the work reports and financial budgeting & final accounting reports of Yuchai Group and Yuchai Machinery from 2014 to 2015, the inspection report on the performance of the group's collective contract and the female worker collective contract in 2013, the report on the implementation of workers' proposals adopted at the 3rd session and the collection of workers' proposals at the 4th session, and the report on the democratic appraisal of leading cadres.
During the congress, the worker representative had panel discussions about four reports including the work reports and financial budgeting & final accounting reports of Yuchai Group and Yuchai Machinery, offered suggestions and advice on the reports' deficiencies, showing their sense of ownership in the administration and discussion of corporate affairs. Upon deliberation, the congress voted through the reports.
The congress is a practical congress. At the congress, Li Tiansheng, deputy Party secretary of Yuchai Group, delivered a report on the implementation of workers' proposals adopted at the 3rd session and the collection of workers' proposals at the 4th session. The 3rd session received 52 workers' proposals, adopted 18 upon deliberation and handled the rest as suggestions. The 18 adopted proposals have been implemented and Li briefly described the implementation of the proposals. The 4th session received 35 workers' proposals, adopted 15 and handled the rest as suggestions.
At the congress, Chairman Yan Ping delivered an important speech entitled Comprehensively Advancing the Second Startup, Ensuring the Sustained and Healthy Development of Yuchai. He objectively summed up the work achievements and deficiencies over the year, made a scientific study and judgment of national, industrial and corporate situations, learned and implemented the spirit of the NPC and CPPCC annual sessions this year with the worker representatives, raised new requirements for the comprehensive advancement of the second startup, looked into the problems existing in cadre style building and team building, and raised the requirements of strengthening humanistic care and improving the service mechanism.
We made a good beginning of the second startup in 2014, but there is still a long way to go to achieve our objective, Yan said. Facing the new economic normal and fierce market competition, Yuchai should get out of the dilemma, face up to the gap from advanced international peers, make all-round innovation in such aspects as concept, mechanism, management and technology, and comprehensively advance the second startup, so as to accomplish transformation and upgrading, he added.
At last, the congress called on all workers to consolidate confidence, seize opportunities, adapt to the new normal and work hard for the sustained and healthy development of Yuchai with a strong sense of responsibility, ownership and mission.
