On February 22, Wang Hao, Deputy Secretary of the CPC Zhejiang Provincial Committee and Governor of Zhejiang Province, came to Wanxiang for an inspection of the development of manufacture. He underlined that the whole year's work depends on a good start in spring, and that "a steady and good start" in the first quarter is crucial to the healthy operation of the economy throughout the year. The whole province shall thoroughly implement the spirit of the important speech of General Secretary Xi Jinping, fully enforce the arrangements and requirements laid out at the economic work conference of the CPC Zhejiang Provincial Committee and in the work report of the provincial government, and firmly promote the development and upgrade of manufacture and open up broader prospects in promoting high-quality development in the spirit of seizing every minute as time waits for no man, and with the work style of taking real action and working in earnest to get ahead.
Wang Hao came to Wanxiang in the company of Liu Xin, Deputy Secretary of the CPC Hangzhou Municipal Committee and Mayor, Ji Junmin, Secretary-General of the People's Government of Zhejiang Province, Xu Dake, Deputy Secretary-General of the People's Government of Zhejiang Province, Principals of the Economy and Information Technology Department of Zhejiang and the Zhejiang Federation of Industry and Commerce, and Jiang Yongzhu, Vice Secretary of the CPC Xiaoshan District Committee and the district head. Lu Weiding said delightedly, "The staff of Wanxiang warmly welcome you!" Wang Hao said, "I have come bearing services for the New Year." Accompanied by Lu Weiding, Wang Hao visited Hall A of the Lu Guanqiu Spirit Exhibition Hall, the Wanxiang 123 Cell Workshop, and the Wanxiang Exhibition Hall, viewed the exhibition board for Wanxiang Innovation & Energy-gathering City, and learned in detail about Wanxiang's entrepreneurial process, current development status and global industrial layout, as well as the planning and construction of Wanxiang Innovation & Energy-gathering City.
When visiting the Lu Guanqiu Spirit Exhibition Hall, Wang Hao couldn't help saying, "It's all very moving." He pondered over the five core words of the "Lu Guanqiu Spirit" one by one: "Tackling Difficulties and Challenges, Righteous Path, Creation, Optimism, and Great Harmony, which are fully reflected in Weiding."
While visiting, Wang Hao asked, "What was the revenue last year?" "What was the percentage of manufacture?" "What were the domestic and foreign percentages respectively?" "Where are the main production bases located?" "How was business in January this year?" "How are the overall market and environment?" "What difficulties have there been?" Lu Weiding answered these questions with his thoughts and truth based on the current economic situation and the development reality of the enterprise. He told the governor that the current development environment was good, the market situation was favorable, and the enterprise was growing steadily. Wang Hao listened attentively, had in-depth exchanges with him, and said sincerely, "Good. I wish you the best of luck."
Wang Hao pointed out in the inspection that thriving enterprises lead to a thriving economy, and strong industries effectuate a strong economy. In particular, faced with the current triple pressures of shrinking demand, supply shocks and weakened projections, striving for the development of manufacture means striving for development, employment, people's livelihood and stability, with the ultimate goal of long-term development and the well-being of the people. Governments at all levels shall provide strong support for enterprises, and fully stir up the enthusiasm, initiative and creativity of manufacturing enterprises to boost their confidence in starting new businesses and perseverance in growth. The roles of enterprises as key players in innovation shall be strengthened to allow them to have a keener grasp of the leading trends, promote the transformation and upgrade of traditional manufacturing industries and the forward-looking layout of new industries more effectively, actively assume social responsibility, and make concerted efforts for the high-quality development and the building of a demonstration zone for common prosperity in our province.
