He stressed that the government departments should assume the role of servant for non-public enterprises and are duty-bound to help them to get rid of these difficulties.
The mayor pointed out that a service-oriented government should be established to assist enterprises in need to solve actual problems; and favorable economic conditions should be created for non-public enterprises like formulating more advantageous policies and providing stronger financial assistance.
