  The meeting held that the resilience of SMEs is an important foundation for my country's economic resilience.

SMEs and the private economy have a high degree of overlap. They are the main force in securing market entities and employment. They are a key link in enhancing the stability and competitiveness of the supply chain of the industrial chain. They are also an important force to solve the problem of “stuck necks” in key core technologies. The strong support of the new development pattern plays a pivotal and important role in the overall situation.

We must firmly grasp the spirit of the Fifth Plenary Session and the Central Economic Work Conference, unswervingly implement the "two unwavering", encourage, support, and guide the healthy development of the private economy and small and medium-sized enterprises, and focus on the policy system, service system, and development. In the three areas of the environment, focus on alleviating the difficulty and expensive financing of small and medium-sized enterprises, and focus on strengthening the protection of the legal rights and interests of small and medium-sized enterprises, focusing on the goal of improving the innovation and specialization level of small and medium-sized enterprises, and strive to build a "321" work for small and medium-sized enterprises system.

  The meeting emphasized the need to emancipate the mind, raise awareness, and strive to help the private economy and small and medium-sized enterprises solve the most immediate practical difficulties. It is necessary to grasp the continuity, stability and sustainability of policies, and vigorously support the healthy development of small and medium-sized enterprises, and financial institutions must continuously improve their capabilities to ensure that they dare to lend, are willing to lend, can lend, and will lend. It is necessary to fully mobilize the enthusiasm of local governments at all levels to create and continuously optimize a business environment suitable for the development of private economy and small and medium-sized enterprises. We must do a good job in long-term and basic system research, strengthen research on international practices and international experience, strengthen public opinion and publicity work, and guide and form good social expectations. It is necessary to strengthen overall planning and coordination, effectively mobilize the forces of all parties, and form a joint force to ensure that the policy is implemented and effective.
