2019 Jinhua Development Summit
On November 16, the 2019 Jinhua Development Summit was inaugurated at the municipal Cultural Center. The theme of this session was “Construction of a Metropolitan Area Based on High Quality Development and Integration into the Yangtze River Delta.”
Che Jun, secretary of the Provincial Party Committee and director of the Standing Committee of the Provincial People's Congress; and Yuan Jiajun, deputy secretary of the Provincial Party Committee and provincial governor, gave relevant instructions, while He Yicheng, representative of the well-known citizens and chief executive of the Macao Special Administrative Region, expressed his greetings.
Che Jun said that over the years, natives of Jinhua, both at home and abroad, have striven for the common goals of creating and innovating, as well have made positive contributions to the development of not only the municipality of Jinhua but also the whole province of Zhejiang.
Yuan Jiajun recognized that in a large number of places, both within and outside the borders of China, natives of Jinhua have spread the striving and pragmatic spirit of Zhejiang by not only realizing entrepreneurial projects but also participating in the growth of their native places, bringing about major contributions to the development of Jinhua and Zhejiang.
He Yicheng believes that as long as Jinhua firmly grasps major opportunities, such as the establishment of the Belt and Road and the development of the Yangtze River Delta, and exerts its own advantages to create a characteristic industry, it will be able to establish its position as a global center for small commodities, film, and television culture as well as industrial innovation.
Additionally, Zhu Guoxian, member of the Standing Committee of the Provincial Party Committee and director of the Propaganda Department; and Chen Long, secretary of the Municipal Party Committee, delivered speeches at the opening ceremony. Yin Xuequn, deputy secretary of the Municipal Party Committee and mayor of Jinhua, presided over the opening ceremony. Huang Jinchao, Tao Chenghua, and Chen Lingling, among other leaders, attended the event.
On behalf of the provincial party committee, Zhu Guoxian expressed his congratulations on the convening of the conference and paid high tribute to friends from all walks of life who have long been concerned about supporting Jinhua and Zhejiang's reform and development.
Chen Long quoted two verses of Jinhua-born poet Ai Qing's “I Love This Land”: “Why am I always tearful? / Because I have a deep love for this land…” And went on to say that Jinhua citizens deeply love their land and are attached to the humanistic charm of the regional culture, which has made them rich in innovative spirit, entrepreneurial boldness, and pragmatism.
At the event, the launching ceremony of the Jinhua International Academician Innovation Center and the Jinhua Academician Home of the G60 Science and Technology Corridor in the Yangtze River Delta were held, and the Jinhua Development Outstanding Contribution Award, Jinhua Development Outstanding Achievement Award, and Jinhua Development Role Model Award were awarded.
