2019-01-30

On January 28 and 29, Mr. Guo Wenqing, China Minmetals’ President and Party Group Deputy Secretary and MCC Chairman visited the Handan Base of China Huaye Group Company Limited (China Huaye) for investigation and guidance. He paid tribute to the statue of Ma Wanshui, a famous model worker in the national metallurgical industry, presented a flower basket, and visited Ma Wanshui’s widow, Zhang Shuyun. During the period, Guo Wenqing also held talks with Handan Party Secretary Gao Hongzhi and Mayor Wang Litong, respectively.

In front of the statue, Mr. Guo Wenqing, together with officials and workers of China Huaye, honored the memory and commitment of comrade Ma Wanshui, relived the spirit of Ma Wanshui “striving to be the pacesetter and working hard for great honor” and expressed high respect to Ma Wanshui-headed heroic collective. After presenting a basket of flowers to the statue of Comrade Ma Wanshui, Mr. Guo led all the staff to bow and salute. Comrade Ma Wanshui and Ma Wanshui-headed heroic collective have made painstaking efforts and devoted themselves selflessly for the development of China’s metallurgical industry. They have refreshed tunneling records 20 times. As such, they have been named “Heroic Mine Tunneling Team” by the Ministry of Metallurgical Industry, representing a model of the national metallurgical industry. Their dedication spirit has demonstrated fine qualities of outstanding Chinese industrial workers and become the most precious spiritual wealth of metallurgical technicians and scientists. In 2009, Comrade Ma Wanshui was elected as one of “100 heroes and model figures who have made outstanding contributions to the founding of the People's Republic of China and 100 people who have touched China since the founding of the People's Republic of China,” demonstrating the charm of Ma Wanshui’s heroic collective of the times. The year of 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Ma Wanshui-headed heroic collective. The series of learning and education activities planned by China Huaye to “reshape the advanced image of Ma Wanshui and create the spirit of Ma Wanshui in the new era” will have an important positive impact on further promoting and developing the spirit of Ma Wanshui, implementing requirements of the 2019 annual working conference of China Minmetals, better practicing the enterprise spirit of “never delay a day, never slacken off a day,” and boosting the high-quality development of enterprises.

January 28 is the 23rd day of the twelfth lunar month, or the Kitchen God’s Day called in northern China. On the afternoon of that day, Mr. Guo Wenqing made a special trip to visit Ma Wanshui’s widow, Zhang Shuyun. Guo said that this was the third time he has seen Ms. Zhang. The first was the unveiling ceremony of the Ma Wanshui bronze statue in the office building of the Beijing headquarters of China Huaye. The second was the inauguration ceremony of the Ma Wanshui bronze statue and the Ceremony of Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Death of Comrade Ma Wanshui in the office building of China Huaye’s Tianjin Base. The third was at Ma’s today. Guo Wenqing inquired about the physical and living conditions of Zhang Shuyun. He learned that Ma Wanshui’s son and grandson are all working in China Huaye and they are carrying forward the spirit of Ma Wanshui together with the new leadership of Huaye Mawanshui Branch, Ma Wanshui-headed heroic collective. Guo stressed that the development of China Huaye could not be separated from the inheritance and practice of Ma Wanshui’s spirit by several generations. In recent years, MCC has been advocating and promoting Ma Wanshui’s spirit of “striving to be the pacesetter and working hard for the great honor.” Guo Wenqing also urged Ms. Zhang to bring up any difficulties in her lives with the organization, and we would do our best to help solve them. January 29 is the birthday of Zhang Shuyun. Guo sent flowers, greeting money and birthday cakes to Ms. Zhang, wishing her a happy birthday and a long and healthy life. Guo, on behalf of China Minmetals, wished Ms. Zhang a happy new year. Zhang thanked General Manager Guo Wenqing for his care and considerations for her and her family, thanked leaders and comrades for passing on and carrying forward Ma Wanshui’s spirit, and welcomed everyone to come home again.

Guo conducted on-the-spot investigations on the central business utility tunnel project and Dongtianchi relocation project undertaken by China Huaye in Dong District of Handan City. He listened to the report on the work of China Huaye and focused on the production and construction of the Handan regional construction project and two mining projects in Pakistan and Argentina.

Guo spoke highly of the development achievements made by China Huaye and put forward five clear requirements for the leadership of China Huaye and its future work. First, the leadership itself should take the lead in resolutely implementing regulations. China Huaye’s current leadership team has a strong collective style. Members of the leadership have upright, fair and just characters, which should be maintained and carried forward. Second, the leadership team should conduct management strictly, dare to overcome difficulties, and, with a high-level commitment, boldly go through the reform of “deep water zone.” Third, we need to pay top priority to cost management and strengthen project management and continue to improve the level and quality of project management by promoting the “China Huaye Project Cost Locking Law.” Fourth, it is necessary to speed up the innovation and transformation, boost the common development of surface businesses and mining sectors, and meet the goal of regional development. Fifth, it is necessary to continue to carry forward the spirit of Ma Wanshui, to have a clear-cut stand, set firm goals, and lead the development of enterprises with cultural spirit.

The leadership of China Huaye said that we must keep in mind ardent expectations of General Manager Guo, proactively carry out the enterprise spirit of “never delay a day, never slacken off a day,” carry forward the Ma Wanshui spirit of “striving to be the pacesetter and working hard for great honor,” and make new and greater contributions to China Minmetals to build a world-class metals and mineral corporation with firm passionate faith loyalty and work for the model in the new era.

During the period, Guo Wenqing also held talks with Handan Party Secretary Gao Hongzhi and Mayor Wang Litong, respectively. The two sides had in-depth exchanges on further strengthening cooperation in urban infrastructure, underground utility tunnel, and relocation and construction of iron and steel enterprises.

Guo expressed gratitude to Handan Municipal Party Committee and Government for its long-term support for China Minmetals and MCC. He also praised Handan’s development achievements made in recent years. Guo presented that China Minmetals is now building a business system featured by “four beams and eight columns” regarding metal mining, metallurgical construction, trade logistics, and finance and real estate. In the field of metal mining, China Minmetals possesses rich mineral resources including copper, nickel, lead, zinc, and lithium. In the field of metallurgical construction, China Minmetals makes up 90% and 60% of the share of domestic and global metallurgical construction markets, respectively. Therefore, it is one of China’s national teams for metallurgical construction. In the field of trade logistics, China Minmetals has established trade outlets in more than 60 countries and regions across the world. In the field of finance and real estate, China Minmetals has a full financial license. Minmetals Land and MCC Real Estate are two of 16 real estate enterprises identified by the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC).

Guo Wenqing stressed that Handan has a long history, profound culture, and active industrial development. China Minmetals and MCC have established a long-term friendly cooperative relationship with Handan City. Currently, projects undertaken by China Huaye in Handan City are of high quality, making up a large share. Guo hoped Handan Municipal Party Committee and Government will provide the same support and help as always. It is suggested that both sides continue to deepen and broaden the cooperation, so as to achieve mutual benefits and win-win development.

Gao Hongzhi welcomed Guo Wenqing’s visit and introduced Handan’s location advantage and economic and social development results. Handan is at the junction of four provinces. He said that Handan Municipal Party and Government welcome large central enterprises such as China Minmetals and MCC to participate in Handan’s construction, and will continue to provide better policies and services for enterprises in the future. He hoped that the two sides would further expand cooperation in urban infrastructure, underground utility tunnel, relocation and construction of iron and steel enterprises and other fields to achieve win-win results.

Wang Litong thanked China Minmetals and MCC for their contribution to Handan’s economic and social development. He said that Handan Municipal Party Committee and Government have attached great importance to their cooperation with China Minmetals and MCC, hoping that the two sides will further strengthen communication, expand cooperation areas and achieve win-win development. Handan Municipal Party Committee and Government will create a better environment and provide greater support for the enterprise.
