On the afternoon of the 13th National People’s Congress, Xiao Yaqing was appointed Minister of the National People’s Congress.
on July 31, the website of the Ministry of industry and information technology announced that a few days ago, the CPC Central Committee decided that Comrade Xiao Yaqing would be the Secretary of the Party group of the Ministry of industry and information technology, and Comrade Miao Wei would no longer be the Secretary of the Party group of the Ministry of industry and information technology.
the reporter of the daily economic news noted that since the establishment of the Ministry of industry and information technology in 2008, Li Yizhong and Miao Wei have taken up the post of minister. Xiao Yaqing is the third “leader” of the Ministry of industry and information technology.
the reporter of daily economic news noted that Xiao Yaqing, who assumed the new post this time, had previously held a series of important positions, such as Deputy Secretary General of the State Council, director of the state owned assets supervision and administration, and director general of the State Administration of market supervision.
according to the website of the State Administration of market supervision, Xiao Yaqing was born in September 1959 and began to work in August 1982. He graduated from Central South University with a doctor’s degree in material processing engineering and a professor level senior engineer.
from his resume, Xiao Yaqing worked in the aluminum industry system for a long time. Before 2009, he served successively as deputy chief engineer and chief engineer of northeast light alloy processing plant, general manager of Northeast Light Alloy Co., Ltd., director and member of Party committee of Southwest Aluminum processing plant, chairman, general manager and member of Party committee of Southwest Aluminum (Group) Co., Ltd., deputy general manager and member of Party group of Chalco, general manager and Secretary of Party group of Chalco, China Chairman and CEO of Aluminum Co., Ltd.
in less than two years, Xiao Yaqing transformed an old state-owned enterprise, Southwest Aluminum processing plant, which had accumulated losses of 1.629 billion yuan for nine consecutive years and an annual output of only 70000 tons, into one of the largest 500 enterprise groups in China. In 2009, Xiao Yaqing was appointed Deputy Secretary General of the State Council. Over the past seven years, he has worked with the vice premier, who is mainly in charge of industry, telecommunications, energy, transportation and other important economic fields.
in 2016, Xiao Yaqing took over the post of director of the state owned assets supervision and Administration Commission. In 2019, Xiao Yaqing succeeded Zhang Mao as director general and Secretary of the Party group of the State Administration of market supervision and administration.
it is worth mentioning that during Xiao Yaqing’s tenure as the director of SASAC, great progress has been made in the reform of state-owned enterprises, the elimination of production capacity, and the turning of losses into profits.
a senior expert on the reform of state-owned enterprises pointed out to reporters that in recent years, getting rid of losses and improving profits of central enterprises is a key point worthy of attention during Xiao Yaqing’s tenure. It is very difficult for state-owned enterprises to reverse the situation of large-scale losses before.
in addition, the expert also stressed that during Xiao Yaqing’s term of office, the central enterprises and state-owned enterprises also achieved remarkable results in the supply side structural reform and the removal of excess capacity.
during Xiao Yaqing’s more than three years as director of SASAC, a series of state-owned enterprise reform measures have been steadily implemented. During the Boao Forum for Asia 2019 annual meeting held in March 2019, Xiao Yaqing introduced that 83 central enterprises have established standardized board of directors, 46 central enterprises have implemented contractual management for more than 3300 managers, and equity incentive has been implemented in 81 holding listed companies.
in October 2019, the 14th meeting of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People’s Congress will hold a joint group meeting. At the meeting, Xiao Yaqing introduced that while carrying out the special rectification of anti fraud and anti false propaganda, the market supervision department is studying and drafting a long-term mechanism for cleaning up and rectifying the health care industry, and improving the regulatory system for the registration and filing of health food.
he said: “we have issued the guideline on the labeling of health food, which stipulates that 20% of the space should be marked with” health food is not a drug, it can not replace medicine to treat diseases. “. It’s to let the elderly see at a glance what this food is for. ”
in December 2019, Xiao Yaqing went to Shenzhen global e-commerce Co., Ltd., Tencent Computer Systems Co., Ltd. and Huawei Group to carry out research, emphasizing on strengthening network market supervision and guiding the sustainable and healthy development of the industry.
he pointed out that the vigorous development of emerging industries such as the Internet has injected new impetus into economic construction, and also posed new challenges to the construction of a scientific and efficient market supervision system. To do a good job of online supervision and maintain a good network market order, we need to continue to promote market supervision reform and innovation, and strengthen supervision.
Li Jin, executive director of China Enterprise Research Institute, commented in an interview with the daily economic news that Xiao Yaqing was born in a state-owned state-owned enterprise. He worked at the grass-roots level of state-owned enterprises and was familiar with the enterprises. Later, as the director of the state-owned assets supervision and Administration Commission, he had rich experience and made contributions to the reform of state-owned enterprises. There are many similarities between the field of industry and information technology and the field of state-owned assets supervision and management. This time as Minister of the Ministry of industry and information technology will give better play to his working experience.
