Chapter 1425: Double Edge sword

This chapter is updated by Novels.pl


The meeting dispersed.

The Party Committee meeting ended.

This was a Party Committee where the opinions of the first and second in command were completely aligned. While such situations were not uncommon, they were still quite unusual in the current context of deteriorating relations between the Meng and Jiang factions. Of course, this was only from the perspective of ordinary people. Those with more mature political experience could discern the nuances. While the leaders seemed to have a unified stance on the surface, there were likely significant differences in their underlying thoughts.

As soon as the meeting room door opened, Pu An, the big brother of the faction, grabbed Dong Xuebing.

After finding a secluded spot, Pu An said, "Xuebing, you've been quite bold in your words. Where are you going to get 50 million for investment attraction?"

Dong Xuebing smiled, "Do my best."

Pu An said, "What if you fail? You even mentioned resigning."

Dong Xuebing replied, "I need some personnel, and I need to provide some assurance."

Pu An said, "Resignation is unnecessary. Even though Secretary Meng said he didn't hear it clearly, you've put it out there. What if you can't fulfill the investment attraction task? You've cornered yourself. Do you think these promotion quotas and personnel adjustments are easy to handle?"

What was the concept of 50 million RMB?

Ten times the average investment attraction amount from previous years.

Not only did people from the Meng faction not believe that Dong Xuebing could accomplish this task, but also those from the Jiang faction.

" Secretary Pu, you are worried about me, but I'm fine. You know me. Since I've said it, I can do it." Dong Xuebing was still confident.

After a few words, Pu An left.

Dong Xuebing thought about it and went to Jiang Fangfang's office.

Originally, he wanted to bring up the matter of personnel and promotions, but he didn't want to boast about attracting investments. Naturally, he didn't inform Mayor Jiang in advance. However, with the unpredictable situation during the meeting, Dong Xuebing took the opportunity to mention it. It seemed to have stirred up quite a controversy, and Dong Xuebing would have to inform Mayor Jiang about it later.

Mayor's office.

The secretary was not there, so Dong Xuebing went straight in.

Inside, Jiang Fangfang had just returned and was organizing meeting documents to put them in the drawer. Seeing Dong Xuebing, she said while tidying up, "50 million? You scared me."

Dong Xuebing apologized, "I didn't mention it to you in advance. I only brought it up during the meeting."

"I know," Jiang Fangfang finished packing up, sat down, and looked at him. "I've said it before. Go all out in investment attraction, and I have confidence in you."

Dong Xuebing's eyes flickered, "Thank you for your trust."

Jiang Fangfang said, "However, don't talk about resigning anymore. This isn't the first time, right? You bring it up so easily. It's unnecessary."

Dong Xuebing smiled, "I've already said it, and I can't take it back. I'll be more careful next time."

Jiang Fangfang nodded, "Secretary Meng's opinion is also unified. This time, the county will fully support your investment attraction work. Everything is given the green light."

Dong Xuebing said, "I understand. I won't let you down."

Jiang Fangfang corrected, "It's not about letting me down; it's about not disappointing the common people. Our county's future will rely on this investment to turn things around. But don't put too much pressure on yourself. If you can't complete the 50 million task, you still have me to share the responsibility."

The door to the inner office was not closed.

Li Xiaona happened to open the door and entered the outer office, hearing Jiang Fangfang's last sentence. Her eyes blinked, thinking that Mayor Jiang's attitude towards Mayor Dong was extraordinary.

After finishing official business, the secretary returned.

Dong Xuebing didn't stay long, bid farewell to Jiang Fangfang, greeted Li Xiaona with a smile as he walked out, and then returned to his office.

A moment later, Yao Cui knocked on the door and entered.

She would always come after each Party Committee meeting, as customary.

Dong Xuebing said, "Cui'er, you probably heard about the matters discussed at the meeting. Help me select a reliable and clever clerk from the county government office."

Yao Cui asked, "Who do you think is suitable?"

Dong Xuebing smiled, "You decide. I'm not familiar with them."

After thinking for a moment, Yao Cui said, "Alright, I'll check and get back to you."

Dong Xuebing said, "Sure. Once you decide, have them start working tomorrow. Handle the transfer procedures. We're short of staff."

While discussing this, Dong Xuebing's phone rang.

After exchanging a few words, Yao Cui closed the door and left.

Dong Xuebing checked the number; it was Secretary Xie Guobang's secretary. Immediately answering, he said, "Hello, Brother Shen, I was just about to call you."

Secretary Shen chuckled, "I've already sorted out the matter you mentioned. For the rest, just communicate directly with the Bureau leader. Oh, by the way, I noticed she was suspended recently, which might affect her promotion. When I inquired, it hadn't been documented yet. I made a few arrangements, withdrew the suspension, and didn't record it."

Dong Xuebing said, "Oh, thank you on behalf of my friend."

Secretary Shen replied, "You're welcome. It's just a small matter."

"Alright, I'll treat you to a meal another day. Thanks a lot."

Secretary Shen had now resolved what was initially uncertain about the promotion of Chang Juan.

After hanging up, Dong Xuebing quickly contacted Chang Juan's current unit and then went to the Organization Department to discuss the matter with Liao Haiwei.

In the office, the two sat facing each other.

" Minister Liao, I brought you some tea leaves." Dong Xuebing smiled, putting down a large package.

"Hey, why so much?" Liao Haiwei looked at it with envy. "Why don't you take some back? I don't have extra gifts to give in return for so much."

Dong Xuebing said, "It's not worth much. Take it and enjoy. If it's not enough, I'll have more sent over."

"No, that's not right. I feel embarrassed. How about this? Tomorrow, I'll bring some tea leaves from home for you."

After finishing this, the two began discussing official business.

After flipping through Chang Juan's information, Liao Haiwei didn't say much. He looked at the clock. "It's almost time to get off work. Let's handle the matters of inspection and transfer tomorrow; it's too late now."


"You communicate with these people tomorrow."

"Sure, I'll inform them in advance."

"Good. After you've spoken, I'll have the inspection team from the Organization Department go over."

The visit from the inspection team was just a formality. The Party Committee had already set the tone, and there wouldn't be any changes.

Dong Xuebing's declaration this time was, in essence, a double-edged sword. The advantage lay in Dong Xuebing quickly consolidating the Investment Promotion Bureau, promoting his people, and quickly rallying combat strength. However, the downside was the enormous 50 million investment target he had promised, which was too massive compared to the previous investment achievements of Zhen Shui County. It was almost impossible to accomplish. Dong Xuebing had already brought up resignation as a way out. In the end, if the performance couldn't be achieved, he would lose face and couldn't stay in this position. This was also the result that many people from the Meng faction were willing to see. By removing Dong Xuebing, the strength of the Jiang faction would be greatly reduced. Even if Dong Xuebing completed the task, people from the Meng faction would also benefit. This was probably why Meng Rui supported Dong Xuebing's promotion request at the Party Committee meeting.

Recently I created a game for Android Energy Idle Tycoon , I could use a little support in promoting it, just download it and play for a while. Thank you in advance.
