When the hands meet again at the last second in 2017, 2018 is ringing. At this special moment to say goodbye to the old year and to welcome the new year, on behalf of the management team, I would like to send my warmest New Year’s regards and the best wishes to every employee, retiree, family, authority and friend from all over the world, trusting and supporting, the development and growth of CRRC Zhuzhou Institute.
2017 was a major milestone in both the development of the CPC and our country. The 19th National Congress of the CPC declared the new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics, described the new blueprint for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese Nation, indicated the positive directions where to the development of the CPC and our country can proceed. We have been striving for the dream, that transportation makes our country stronger as we always did during last year - a critical period for CRRC Zhuzhou Institute in the progress of 13th Five Year Plan.
No pain, no gain. Over the passed year, we have developed industries by adhering to a guiding Code of Science and Technology and by amplifying a supply-side structural reform. Our “Go Out” pace became more solid and steady by seizing the opportunity of the Belt and Road Initiative and actively promoting an international strategy. Our Party-leading and Party-building work has created a new situation by strictly carrying out the policy of overall governing , building a clean and honest government and strengthen our ideals and beliefs.
This year, with the autonomous rail vehicles and intelligent drive and new energy vehicles ,the “Black Technology” of CRRC Zhuzhou Institute became well known all over the world. The world’s largest deep-water plow kicked off. The commercialization of permanent magnet traction, power semiconductor and low and medium magnetic levitation traction system technology has been continuously enhanced. The “Renaissance” high speed train, the dual-powered grinder for SRD (State Railway Corporation) and the autonomous CBTC signaling system made smooth progress. We responded well to building a beautiful China through continuous exploring and making major breakthrough in the fields of wind power, photovoltaic power, new energy vehicles, new energy electric drive systems and more. Our independent R&D abilities were steadily accepted and our company has won the “Golden Award”and“ Excellence Award” of Chinese patents, which strengthened the advantage of our company’s science and technology expertise.
This year, we have intensified the guiding role of Party building as well as continued to strengthen the Party’s leadership over state-owned enterprises . We have created the “One Body with Three Systems” management mechanism for our company’s party and masses work, based on the studies (theoretical and practical issues) of party building and CRRC inspection and rectification. We have effectively implemented the main responsibilities of party committee and supervision responsibilities of the Commission for Discipline Inspection. The foundation work of Party building was significantly strengthened. The coherence between Party building and science research and production has notably improved. A clean government risk and business risk prevention awareness has greatly strengthened.
Live happily and work joyfully. This year, we have eagerly strengthened the building of a corporate culture through conducting different cultural and sport activities to enlighten employees, to enrich employee’s life and to liven up our corporate atmosphere. By following a “We are a family” philosophy, always caring about our staff, sharing the prosperity and achievements with all employees, we are creating a healthy, harmonious, happy and warm home-feeling enterprise.
Do never lose the crisis awareness. Even the overall economy is getting better and better we should also realize since our company has moved to a key stage of development there are many rising challenges, which still need to be solved. There are unbalanced industrial, marketing and operation developments, imbalances between resource investments and output efficiency , between development speed and management level. We are aware that some parts of our businesses and industries are still in difficulties, but our employees, from the management to front-line workers, and especially the youth, always find a way. They are full of passion, they stand by each other and move forward together with the company. I am very proud of you.
The new era opens a new journey and new endeavors create a new look. In the new year of 2018 , we will strive for an even stronger company, an employee culture ,more joy , more satisfaction and much more happiness. We will provide a better working environment for our grass-roots staff, a broader development platform for younger employees, a more respecting cultural identity and exchange for overseas employees and a better service for retirees. I firmly believe that as long as we all of us work together, be one heart-minded, remember why we have started, remember our mission, make efforts, our dream and goals will be achieved.
Let us be confident and look forward to a bright 2018!
Thank you very much!
