On the afternoon of the 23rd, Governor Zheng Shanjie investigated enterprise development in Hangzhou, saying that the prosperity of the enterprises leads to the prosperity of the economy. The high-quality development of a demonstration zone for common prosperity depends on the joint efforts of the whole society, and the development and growth of enterprises is a key link. He encouraged the enterprises to promote the spirit of Zhejiang businessmen, seize the major historical opportunities to participate in the construction of the demonstration zone, and inject strong impetus to the high-quality development of Zhejiang in the new development stage, to its competitiveness and modernization, so as to make greater contributions to the construction of “important windows”.
Zheng Shanjie came to the second production base of Wahaha in Hangzhou and Zhejiang Geely Holding Group to inspect the company’s product display and R&D production line, and inquired about the company’s planning and development. Wahaha Group, a well-known food and beverage manufacturer with a history of nearly 35 years, is engaged in the development of a big health industry. Zhejiang Geely, which has been listed in the Fortune Global 500 for 9 consecutive years, is currently committed to the development of the future smart three-dimensional travel and has more than 20,000 R&D and designers worldwide.
Wherever he went, Zheng Shanjie talked cordially with the company leaders and the R&D team, listened carefully to the needs of the companies, and coordinated on the spot to solve the difficulties and problems encountered in the development. Zheng Shanjie expressed his gratitude to the entrepreneurs who cared about Zhejiang and contributed to Zhejiang’s economic and social development. He said that both Wahaha and Geely are brand enterprises and backbones of Zhejiang, with great influence in the country and even the world. The vast number of dynamic, and promising market entities is the basis of Zhejiang’s economy and an important force for the high-quality development of a demonstration zone for common prosperity. Governments at all levels must unswervingly support the development of the private economy and enterprises to make them stronger and bigger. Traditional industries can become sources of new kinetic energy by grafting new technologies, new crafts, new formats, and new models. He hoped the enterprises to grasp development opportunities, make long-term corporate planning, increase investment in research and development, and strike to seize the commanding heights of technological innovation, so as to enhance the core competitiveness of the company, and further develop the brand, open up the market, and break new paths for the new development pattern. With a sense of mission and a vision for the future, entrepreneurs should actively participate in the major national and provincial strategies, stand out in the market tide, and participate in the construction of a demonstration zone for common prosperity, so as to make new contributions to narrowing the gap between regions and urban and rural areas. The local government should attach great importance to the needs and opinions of enterprises, optimize the business environment and innovation ecology, and promote and protect entrepreneurship, so as to boost enterprise development confidence and stimulate the vitality of market entities with more detailed and effective services.
