Last May, I was appointed president of the group by the board of directors. In August, I officially took over from the older generation. This is a noble honor and a heavy responsibility.
In the past few months, I have deeply reviewed the development process of Heng'an and my thoughts on the future. Here I share four points with you.
First of all, further innovate the work of Party building and promote party building into the chapter.
In the current of the times and facing the great changes that have not been seen in a century, I think the first thing is to unswervingly start a business with the party, fight with the party, listen to the party's words, feel the party's kindness and follow the party.
In the second year of the company's establishment, that is, in 1986, Heng'an established the Party branch, which is also the first non-public enterprise party organization on the ground in Jinjiang.
In November, we set out to promote the party building and innovation of the group, and became the pioneer of the party building and innovation of the group. In November, we made clear the position of Party members and employees in the reform of the group, and made a clear contribution to the party building and innovation of the group. We were the pioneer of the group. At the end of December, the Party committee of the group organized a large discussion to combine the implementation of the spirit of the Sixth Plenary Session of the CPC Central Committee with the development goal of HengAn, so as to condense red wisdom and inject red power into the development of the enterprise.
Second, extend the upstream and downstream industrial chain and continue to innovate.
How to seize the new opportunities in the new era? I think the most fundamental thing is to continue to innovate, put the enterprise blueprint into the national strategy and integrate it into the regional development plan, especially in combination with the new layout and advantages of Quanzhou's high-quality leapfrog development, find its own positioning and direction, and realize the upgrading and leapfrogging of the industry.
To this end, Heng'an will start the phase II construction project of Jinjiang Neikeng, covering an area of 700 Mu this year. The project plans to invest 5 billion yuan to & ldquo; End to end & rdquo; Based on informatization, by extending the upstream and downstream value chain, high standard construction set & ldquo; Upstream raw materials & rdquo& ldquo; Intelligent production & rdquo& ldquo; Smart storage & rdquo& ldquo; 2B, 2C intelligent sorting bin & rdquo; And other supporting modern sanitary products Industrial Park, which will also be Hengan Group's comprehensive industrial base with the highest standard and the largest volume in China. I think this is what we continue to practice & ldquo; Jinjiang experience & rdquo; Practical actions and best proof.
Third, green, low-carbon, cost reduction and efficiency increase.
Since its establishment, Hengan Group has always followed the concept of green, low-carbon and sustainable development and actively responded to the national & ldquo; Double carbon & rdquo; Strategy to achieve cleaner production and & ldquo; Zero emission & rdquo; At the same time, realize cost reduction and efficiency increase.
The group introduced the first energy-saving and environment-friendly paper machine in China and developed it by itself; End cover insulation & rdquo; Technology to realize steam recovery and reuse; Continue to invest in the construction of sewage treatment system to realize zero discharge of wastewater; The solar energy coverage of the whole plant is realized in many factories across the country, and the solar power generation capacity is 20 million kwh in 2021 alone。
Finally, operate in good faith, shoulder social responsibility bravely and promote common prosperity.
Integrity is the foundation of an enterprise. Since its establishment, HengAn has always adhered to the principle of sunshine and justice, and operated in good faith in accordance with laws and regulations. In the 22 years since its listing in 1998 alone, enterprises have paid more than 32 billion yuan of taxes nationwide.
Heng An Group has been actively implementing the social responsibility while realizing the sustained and healthy development of the enterprise. Whether it is the daily philanthropy, or in the battle against COVID-19, Heng an always takes the greatest enthusiasm to fulfill the responsibility and responsibility of a national enterprise. Up to now, Heng'an and its major shareholders have contributed more than 1.6 billion yuan.
Dear leaders, entrepreneurs and colleagues, benefiting from the great times, Heng'an group was born and grew up in Quanzhou. We have always been grateful for the support and care of Quanzhou Municipal Party committee and government. We will also continue to carry forward & ldquo; Jinjiang experience;, Concentrate on the development of industry and make due contributions to promoting high-quality development and writing a new chapter of Quanzhou in building a socialist modern country in an all-round way!
Finally, I wish you all a happy new year and the year of the tiger!
