A meeting commending role models in implementing the country's Peaceful China initiative was held in Beijing on December 15. Changsha City was honored as “a demonstration city in building peaceful China” during the 2017-2020 period. It also won the “Chang’an Cup” Award, the highest award for Peaceful China construction, for the third time, becoming one of the three provincial capitals to win the “Chang’an Cup” Award for three consecutive years. Zheng Jianxin, deputy secretary of the CPC Changsha Municipal Committee, mayor of Changsha, and secretary of the CPC Working Committee of the Hunan Xiangjiang New Area, accepted the award on behalf of Changsha.

The “Chang’an Cup” Award conveys the meaning of “lasting peace and stability”, and is the highest honor reflecting the modernization level of a city's social governance. The award is given every four years. Only those cities which have been rated as “demonstration cities in building peaceful China” (formerly known as “national outstanding cities for comprehensive management of social security”) for 3 sessions, or 12 years, in a row, are qualified to obtain their first “Chang’an Cup” Award. To continue to win such an award, they have to be “demonstration cities in building peaceful China” in subsequent sessions. In this way, Changsha has been “demonstration cities in building peaceful China” for 20 consecutive years.

At the commendation meeting, Min Wen, Political and Legal Committee deputy secretary of the CPC Changsha Municipal Committee, was honored as “an advanced individual in building Peaceful China”

In recent years, Changsha has been innovating social governance methods and measures, improving safety building systems and mechanisms, and promoting the standardized construction of the grid-based and informationized governance system at grassroots level, a comprehensive control center, a grid-based management center, and an emergency command center. Its practice experience has been recommended to the whole province and even the whole country for many times. It was rated as a “model city for social governance innovation in 2019”. Changsha has built a comprehensive “Xueliang Project” application network, a “Intelligent Villages" prevention and control network, and an “all-area perception" safety network. It was included in the country’s first group of demonstration cities for the networking application of public security video surveillance.
