On November 12, Luohu Party chief Luo Yude revealed his district's plans to further improve the people's livelihood at the "Bridge of Voices", a radio program aired by the Shenzhen Media Group.
Luo pledged that a string of measures would be taken to make sure the fruits of opening up and reform are shared by more people in a fairer way.
To guarantee patients' access to skilled doctors, Luohu has been advancing its reform of public hospitals since 2015. According to Luo, the district is deliberating over possible plans to build the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Science, Technology and Medicine Complex to grow its resources in the areas of medical care, education, recreation and sports.
From 2018 to 2022, Luohu will build six schools, nine public kindergartens, and rebuild eight schools, which will cost 2.2 billion yuan. Luo said that the district is now exploring a new model of quality education to provide better education to every child of school-going age.
As for taking care of the elderly, Luo said that Luohu had been steadily increasing its expenditure in this area over the years. He added that about 23,000 people are now receiving old-age allowance, 13 canteens for old people have come into service, and a district-wide network of community and home-based care service have taken shape.
Luo also shared that Luohu will continue to improve its business environment and attract more high-quality enterprises to settle in the district. The government will also work to encourage more start-ups and create more jobs.
To make Luohu more liveable, the government plans to provide 38,000 affordable housing units over the next five years, some of which will be designated for professionals and talent relocating from other regions or countries.
Luo said that the government has also encouraged the district's charity society and other public funds to mobilize more citizens to help vulnerable groups.
About 84 pieces of feedback from the audience were received during the program and will be carefully considered by the local government within three working days.
