“I was scared to the soul, and I thought about death every day,” he said.

He later learned that the organ donor was a young person who died in a car accident
in Hubei province, more than 1,000 kilometers away, but he doesn’t know further details.
In March, a year after the surgery, Zhao enrolled to become an organ dono

He also urged solid statistics in the financial sector and improvement in the warning system and rules on information disclosure and management.
Education and supervision of senior officials of financial institutions and regulators sh
ould be enhanced, and more should be done to fight corruption in the financial sector, Xi said.
He called for dynamic supervision of domestic and cross-border capital flow to enable financial watchdogs to fully monitor all flows.
Xi said tasks for the reform and opening-up of the financial sector should be well implem
ented, calling for the preparation and the rolling-out of new reform and opening-up measures based on
the latest development of global economy and finance as well as the strategic needs of China.
Reforms including revamps on market access system and trading regulations should be deepened, and regulators should take a two-pronged appr
oach of enforcing both macro-prudential management and micromanagement of behaviors, he said.
He said those causing major financial risks due to their breaches such as lax regula
tion, cover-ups or decision-making failures must be held accountable and face serious punishment.
Efforts should be made to address the current situation where the costs of legal and
regulatory breaches in the financial sector, especially capital markets, are too low, Xi said.
Xi urged enhancing the global competitiveness of China’s financial sector, elevating the two-way opening-up to a highe
r level and beefing up capabilities of financial management and risk prevention and control amid greater opening-up.
