We should build a common and shared demonstration platform, give full play to the technological advantages of military enterprises, develop the industry, promote the development of military-local and military-civilian integration, finding a way for the in-depth development of military-civilian integration.
It is reported that, in order to implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important instructions, Peng Qinghua, secretary of the Sichuan Provincial Committee of CCP, and Governor of Sichuan Province Yin Li have studied and deployed many times to promote the solution of major issues in the development of military-civilian integration in Mianyang. The SPCCCP and The People’s Government of Sichuan province also issued the " Opinions on the Implementation of Supporting the Accelerated Development of China's Science and Technology City (Mianyang)", providing support and guarantee for Mianyang city to carry out its national mission.
