According to the reports, Xie Yisen, secretary of the Yichun Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China, Jiangxi province, only make 5 minutes speech at the work meeting of city's urban construction with about 500 words, which is a clear and concise speech.
The whole year's work depends on a good start in spring. In the beginning of the year, all units across the country will have the meeting to convey the spirit, deploy works, assigned goals, so that the meeting speech is naturally indispensable. However, there are leaders in some places or units, in disregard of the central government's requirements of a short talk at the meeting, that make sloppy, off-topic speeches.
The time of meetings and speeches should be based on actual needs, not indulging in idle talk and stereotyped expressions. The true thoughts, useful speaking should be expressed, so that it can help to solve the problem and carry out the work.
Some meetings are more important and have much more content so they require longer speeches. But some meeting can be shortened, some need not be held, and some short meetings can be combined. It not only reduces costs but also helps to carry out works.
Meeting and speeches are only formalities, but the implementation of work is fundamental. The most important thing is implementation. It is better to do well every small things than talking big. It is better to go to the grass-roots and take the time to do the practical things than saying pretty words.
