  The Yellow River is surging for thousands of miles and flows into the sea in the east.

Standing on the dock platform, the General Secretary stopped to look far away.

  Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the general secretary has set his sights on the Mother River time and time again, leaving his inspection footprints along the Huangjiu provinces and regions.

  From August 2019 to June 2020, in less than one year, the general secretary went to Gansu, Henan, Shanxi, and Ningxia to investigate the ecological protection of the Yellow River Basin.

  This kind of itinerary shows that the general secretary attaches great importance to this big river, and also reflects the overall thinking of "a game of chess".

  The Yellow River stretches for more than 5,000 kilometers with a drainage area of ​​about 750,000 square kilometers. It is an important ecological barrier and economic zone in China.

"The Yellow River is peaceful, and the world is peaceful", after all, the peace of the Yellow River is closely related to the destiny of the country and the nation.

  Whenever he goes to a place, the general secretary is based on reality, and has targeted the pulse and requirements.

  In Gansu, Gansu is an important water conservation area and replenishment area in the Yellow River Basin. It must first take on the important tasks of ecological restoration, soil and water conservation, and pollution prevention and control in the upper reaches of the Yellow River.

  In Henan, it is required to protect the ecology along the Yellow River and improve the quality and stability of the natural ecosystem.

  In Shanxi, it is emphasized to promote the development and protection of Shanxi's Yellow River area.

  In Ningxia, efforts are required to build a pioneering zone for ecological protection and high-quality development in the Yellow River Basin.

  ……

  This time, in Dongying, Shandong, General Secretary Xi Jinping inspected the water regime of the Yellow River and the ecological environment of the Yellow River Delta wetland, and learned about the ecological protection and high-quality development of the Yellow River Basin.

  At the Symposium on Ecological Protection and High-Quality Development of the Yellow River Basin held as early as 2019, the general secretary talked about problems such as prominent shortcomings in downstream flood control, low ecological flow, and shrinking estuary wetlands in some places.

  Based on the integrity of the entire river basin and ecosystem, the general secretary emphasized: “The upstream focus should be on improving the water conservation capacity; the midstream should focus on water and soil conservation and pollution control; the downstream should focus on protecting the wetland ecosystem and increasing biodiversity.”

  The overall plan has become a key to the general secretary's water management.

"Together to do a good job of major protection and coordinate to promote major governance" is his "good prescription" for the protection of the Yellow River.

  Just ten days ago, the "Outline of the Yellow River Basin Ecological Protection and High-Quality Development Plan" was announced, and the top-level blueprint for ecological protection and high-quality development of the Yellow River Basin was drawn up.

  After drawing the grand plan of the Yangtze River, the huge curtain of high-quality development of the Yellow River Basin was gradually unveiled.

To keep the mother river alive and vigorous forever, General Secretary Xi Jinping has always been lingering in his heart and knowing what to do.

  "Starting from reality, we must start from the reality, that is, water is suitable for water, mountains are suitable for mountains, grain is suitable for grain, agriculture is suitable for agriculture, work is suitable for industry, and business is suitable for business, and actively explore new ways of high-quality development with regional characteristics."

  The general secretary's plan for the Mother River is a win-win way that requires both protection and high-quality development. It is a way of harmonious coexistence between man and nature, and a way of benefiting the country and the people.
