Jing Junhai extended a warm welcome to all the guests participating in the event and expressed his heartfelt thanks to the China International Council for the Promotion of Multinational Corporations, as well as Chinese and foreign multinational companies for their care and support for the revitalization and development of Jilin. He said that under the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, the province is making great strides toward the goal of achieving new breakthroughs in comprehensive revitalization and building a new modern socialist Jilin. In the first quarter of this year, the province's economy continued to recover and develop. The growth rate of major economic indicators was at the forefront of the country, getting off to a good start in a new year. Today, the province has revitalization opportunities, a new development trend, innovative industry advantages and a sound living environment. We have been thoroughly implementing General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speeches and instructions during his visits to Jilin, acting on the "one pillar, six doubles" high-quality development strategy, vigorously developing six new industries and four new facilities, deepening the "five co-operations", pushing for digital transformation, intelligent services, social sharing and industrial upgrade, and promoting the redistribution of State-owned enterprises, the fast development of private companies and the rapid influx of foreign investment. We are sparing no effort to revitalize the manufacturing base, to develop the commodity grain base, to turn the clean energy base into a new engine, and to make the ice and snow industry base lead a new trend. Jing said that hopefully, Chinese and foreign multinational companies will support Jilin, actively invest in Jilin, stand committed to the Jilin market, and join hands with Jilin for win-win results. The province is to unswervingly pursue opening-up at a high level and further deepen cooperation and exchanges with the companies for a better future, he added.
