Here is the title one h1 placeholder text
On October 25, Zhejiang businessmen from all over the world gathered in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province today. The hometown of many of them is Wenzhou, which is now on the cusp of the storm. Whether to save Wenzhou or not has become controversial for a time. Today, at the first World Zhejiang Business Forum, Zheng Yumin, director of the Zhejiang Provincial Bureau of Industry and Commerce, who has been paying close attention to the development of Zhejiang's private economy and is known as the "spokesman of Zhejiang private enterprises," said in the face of this problem that Wenzhou is now in a special period of transformation. whether to save or not lies in the scientific practice of Wenzhou people. At the same time, he said that for private enterprises, it is necessary to let go of their development, because for private enterprises, "confidence is more important than gold, trust is more important than confidence, and responsibility is more important than trust".
Wenzhou, save or not save?
Wenzhou, which is accustomed to the focus of the media, is not calm in the face of the "tide of running away" and "tide of bankruptcy" exposed by the media this time.
As the director of the Zhejiang Provincial Administration for Industry and Commerce, in the face of various doubts about the "wave of bankruptcy" and "wave of running away", Zheng Yumin said at the first Zhejiang Business Conference today that there are 850000 enterprises in Zhejiang, and 100000 new enterprises have been added this year. Of the 25000 that have disappeared naturally, only 244 have been closed abnormally. "Enterprises are operating in accordance with the laws of natural economy. There are lives and deaths. This is a natural phenomenon. Some stick to it when encountering difficulties, and some may withdraw."
A person in charge of the Zhejiang Provincial Working Group in Wenzhou told a reporter from China News Network a few days ago that the Wenzhou debt crisis has become controllable, but whether to save Wenzhou is still a dispute.
Today, in the face of this problem, Zheng Yumin said, "Wenzhou is in a special period of transformation. It has to say goodbye to some old production methods. This is not to save; but Wenzhou has also grown in recent years. Many new production factors, this is to protect, care, support and understand, this is to save".
Today, Wenzhou's Yongjia culture has also been revisited. Zheng Yumin said that Wenzhou's Yongjia culture is a family from all over the world, standing together. "In 7.23 incident, Wenzhou people did not think about whether to save or not. It is only natural and duty-bound to save."
As for whether to save Wenzhou or not, Zheng Yumin believes that it is all about the scientific practice of Wenzhou people. "Wenzhou people experienced wind and rain, typhoon Yunna in 2004, typhoon Sangmei in 2006, and financial storm in 2008. Sanghai was once difficult for water. Wenzhou people are not afraid of wind and waves. They are white stripes in the waves."
However, Zheng Yumin expressed his views on the various criticisms caused by the "running away" of individual Wenzhou private enterprise owners in the current society. "The private enterprises in Zhejiang have a characteristic that they can't fail without making noise or making trouble. To learn from the poplar trees in the desert, they will not die for a thousand years, die without falling, and fall with immortality, which is the essence of the private enterprises in Zhejiang."
Zheng Yumin believes that the operation of enterprises has economic factors, social factors, and cultural factors. "Economic factors cannot be easily turned into social factors. We cannot sing to enterprises on all sides. We must give them a charge".
Therefore, Zheng Yumin said that private enterprises "should be trusted and understood more,"
He also gave an example: in ancient times, a scholar dug a pond to raise fish in front of his home. He was not at ease about whether these fish were dead or alive, whether to escape or stay. He put the water in two days to see if these fish were still there. Two days to see if these fish are still there, after a while these fish are all dead.
Zheng Yumin said, "For private enterprises, we should let go and rest assured to develop enterprises, because confidence is more important than gold, trust is more important than confidence, and responsibility is more important than trust.
Where is the space for Zhejiang merchants to return?
"Let Zhejiang merchants go home" is one of the intentions of the first World Zhejiang Merchants Conference.
Today, more than 1500 Zhejiang businessmen from five continents, including Europe and Africa, returned to Zhejiang. More than 10 of them stood at the Great Hall of the people in Zhejiang and said the same sentence in different dialects from all over Zhejiang: "it's good to go home".
The Zhejiang government is also full of expectations for the return of Zhejiang merchants. Xia Baolong, acting governor of Zhejiang Province, also expressed his hope at today's forum: he hopes that Zhejiang businessmen will invest in hometown construction, industry, and development of headquarters economy.
However, a Zhejiang businessman doing business in Russia failed to "go home". He asked through Weibo: "I want to go home, but Zhejiang resources are scarce. The land is still that little land. Is there room?"
His question also asked the minds of many overseas Zhejiang businessmen: Although Zhejiang has long become a veritable "economic province", it has never been able to truly get rid of the hat of "small resource province. So, how does Zhejiang let Zhejiang businessmen return?
"This is a question of local accommodation, and Zhejiang should have sufficient accommodation," said Zheng Yumin, director of Zhejiang Industry and Commerce, citing the GDP created per square kilometer.
"Taiwan's GDP per square kilometer is 0.08 billion, South Korea's GDP per square kilometer is 0.07 billion, Jiangsu's GDP per square kilometer is 0.04 billion, and Zhejiang's GDP per square kilometer is 0.027 billion, which shows that we still have room," Zheng Yumin said. Only quality development can have tolerance. At the same time, the tolerance must be achieved by increasing liquidity.
How, exactly, can mobility solve space problems?
Zheng Yumin cited the water cycle as an example. The Qiantang River flows into the West Lake. The West Lake is not full because it flows into the canal, but the canal is not full because it flows into the Yangtze River. The water in the Yangtze River flows into the sea, and the water in the sea is not full. It turns into steam, clouds, rain and returns to the earth. This is circulation and this is fluidity.
In Zheng Yumin's view, Zhejiang has "five seas": the East China Sea, the commercial sea, the human sea, the network ocean and the cultural ocean. When it flows, it is a big ocean.
"Take culture as an example. Zhejiang people shake the boat of Hemudu, wear pajamas woven of silk, hold the rice bowl of the official kiln of the Southern Song Dynasty, then drink the old wine of the hardships, and then sing the friendship of Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai. However, the proportion of cultural output value is very low, and there is a lot of room for this alone."
For the return of Zhejiang merchants, Zheng Yumin believes that this is a "circular flow".
"Going out is an outflow, going back is a return flow, and going in and out is convection at the same time. Going in and out is an interactive flow. Going out first and then coming back is a circular flow. If there is flow, there is space." Zheng Yumin said
