Li Dongyu, a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and vice chairman of the Shaanxi Provincial Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, pointed out that the population loss of counties with smaller population and underdeveloped economy is more serious. Li Dongyu suggested that the county-level administrative divisions should be optimized, small counties should be merged, and small counties with a population of less than 100,000 should be merged to reduce waste of administrative resources and optimize the allocation of production factors.
The proposal to merge the small counties is still in the discussion stage, and the reform of the small county institutions is currently underway. For example, Shanxi Province, in order to analyze the institutional setting, function operation and financial support of the party, government and public institutions and public institutions in small population counties, pointed out that there is an outstanding situation of imbalance in the proportion of financial support personnel in small population counties. In Shanxi Province, several small populated counties have promoted comprehensive reform of the county administrative operation system in accordance with the principles of large ministries, flattened, strong grassroots, emphasis on actual combat, and high efficiency, and achieved streamlined and simplified administration, slimming and strengthening of the body, and consolidating capital. Strong base. This is the most feasible plan at this stage. At this stage, blindly merging small counties is not advisable. The vast central and western regions should vigorously implement the reform of small county institutions, which can maintain a smooth transition of the county economy and streamline administration. After all, it is not easy to cultivate a central town in the central and western regions. At the same time, some counties are too large to be merged just because of their population. According to this theory, wouldn’t it be easy for counties with tens of thousands of square kilometers to appear? Oh, there may be several county towns within these tens of thousands of square kilometers that can still provide Good public services are now merged. That is not fair to the general public. You can’t enjoy more and more convenient public services in the east. It takes 200 kilometers to travel to the county town in the Midwest, which is unrealistic. As for the merged counties, population loss is inevitable, and it has caused more serious population loss caused by public service crises in underdeveloped areas. As for where these population flows, it depends on where they can provide more stable and excellent public services and employment. Post again. As for the future, if some counties change with population migration, they cannot be maintained. Of course, they can be merged, but it is not right to operate in advance. It is neither stable nor economical. It is because of historical reasons that the districts of the northeastern part of the city divided into districts are too dense, and the small counties in Hebei can be operated in a modest manner, but it must be done step by step to ensure the stable development of the local economy. I have to admit that the population problem will change the thinking logic of all walks of life in Chinese society, and it is also an inevitable experience of being included in the global capitalist mode of production. I hereby appeal that it is undesirable to struggle to force the mentality, but economic efficiency is undesirable, and the value of each worker must be respected. Perhaps communist society is not a fantasy, but a new and higher-level mode of production that the capitalist relations of production did not expect to produce, that is, social material is extremely abundant, everyone gets value satisfaction, and labor becomes a new voluntary mode. Professors in the humanities and social sciences are asked to think more, have more system confidence, and have more system innovations. They are always crossing the river with Europe and the United States. The key is whether they have passed. To believe in the advantages of China’s system and mechanism and to continuously enlarge its differences with Europe and the United States, this is a new way to be explored.
