We have been working around the clock as time flies, and now we are in a great era which links the past and the future. With the spring coming and the grass and trees turning green, the voice of the "Two Sessions" has resounded through the great rivers and mountains of the motherland, and has provided a clear direction and a source of power to advance the Chinese path to modernization.
On the morning of March 13, 2023, Li Qiang, Premier of the State Council, met the press after the closing of the first session of the 14th National People's Congress (NPC) at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, the capital of China. When answering questions from Chinese and foreign journalists, the premier pointed out that as an important part of China's basic economic system, the "two unswerving rules" is a long-term policy that has not been changed and will not be changed in the future. The private economy in China will enjoy a more favorable environment and broader development space. In such a new era, private entrepreneurs are called on to create a new entrepreneurial history.
We are making every effort to complete the blueprint. Chen Xuehua, NPC deputy and Group’s Chairman who attended the two sessions in Beijing, said the Premier's words were encouraging for China‘s private enterprises and entrepreneurs, and injected strong confidence and momentum into the development of the country’s private economy. We will remain determined, energetic and motivated as the task develops more arduous on the new journey. We will continue to promote the spirit of perseverance, hard work and fearlessness. We will actively expand and strengthen the private economy to become a major force in the high-quality development of the Chinese economy, and contribute to Huayou's wisdom and solutions to advance the Chinese path to modernization.
Since the founding of Huayou, by adhering to the business essence of creating value for customers, implementing the development strategy of "Two New Areas and Three Development Trends", promoting the "three-in-one" transformation, and insisting on the development model of "Two Gatherings and Two Bases", we have fostered an integrated industrial structure from resources, refining, material to recycling, and constructed an operation pattern of overseas resources, domestic manufacturing and global market, thus being able to create customer value, promote industrial growth and contribute to the development of human society. Over the past 20 years, with the family and country feelings of "rooted in China" and the business ideal of "making friends all over the world", and with the care and concern of leaders at all levels, the trust and support of partners and the great help from all sectors of society, we have become a multinational company with an operating revenue of nearly RMB 48 billion (the first three quarters of 2022) and ranked among the top 500 private enterprises in China. These achievements fully reflect the concern of the Party Central Committee and the State Council for private economy and private entrepreneurs, and also strengthen confidence of Huayou in moving towards a new journey and a great future:
As time flies, we are developing vigorously and magnificently like magic
With the horn blowing, we are encouraged to move forward forever
Embarking on a journey of "completing the ten-year mission in five years", which is full of glory and dreams
We are now in the moment to accelerate the energy revolution
We will comprehensively study and implement
The instructions of the 20th CPC National Congress and the Two Sessions
We are going to take advantage of the situation and start a new journey, roll up our sleeves and work hard
Strive for excellence, advancement and quality improvement
We aim to realize our dream in the Li-ion battery industry as an effort to strive for the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation!
We have always been grateful to our great motherland along the way. Huayou was born in the tide of reform and opening up, grew itself with the development of China's economy and society, and transformed itself with the times. From Huaxing Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. on the Yongxing River and Huayou Cobalt on Wuzhen East Road to Huayue and Huafei in Indonesia, we have always put the family and country feelings of "rooted in China" ahead of "making friends all over the world". We rely on our country at heart, wherever we went (Excerpted from the speech of Chairman Chen Xuehua at the Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Huayou Cobalt).
