We should closely work around the service of

National Maritime power, Science and Technology and strong military strategic needs, aiming at the international frontier be carrying out major scientific research. Thus, striving to achieve the industry’s key core technology research and development breakthrough, by making due contributions to the local economic development of Longjiang.


Fourthly, we should strengthen the discipline governance system, governance ability and personnel team construction, through the introduction and education, reforming the personnel compensation system, optimizing the allocation of resources and other measures to solve the discipline construction problems.


Dayong HONG put forward some constructive suggestions about our school discipline construction and personnel training by the combining it with practical work.
