Meanwhile, internal enterprises under China Minmetals should strengthen close cooperation with brother enterprises, promote the in-depth development of the industrial chain through internal coordination and continuously drive the full-chain high-quality development of all business sectors including theme parks.
Later, Guo Wenqing went to the Tongzhou Grand Canal Forest Park for investigation, listened to the detailed introduction of Tongzhou's historical evolution and development plan by Liu Guiming, Deputy Mayor of Tongzhou District, and went to the Tongzhou District People's Government to have working talks with Party Secretary Zeng Zanrong and Mayor Zhao Lei of Tongzhou District on further strengthening government-enterprise cooperation.
Guo Wenqing thanked the CPC Tongzhou District Committee and Tongzhou District People's Government for their long-term support to China Minmetals and its subsidiaries in Beijing, and introduced the basic information of China Minmetals. He stated that China Minmetals is a metal mining corporation through the strategic restructuring of the former China Minmetals and MCC (two Fortune Global 500 enterprises). It is China's first state-owned capital investment company in the field of metal mining approved by the State Council, and one of the central enterprises with a complete set of financial licenses. MCC is the world's largest and most competitive metallurgical construction contractor and operation service provider, occupying 90% of China's and 60% of the world's metallurgical construction markets. With strong metallurgical construction and capital construction capabilities, it is also the only central enterprise in China to hold the theme park design and construction qualification.
According to Guo Wenqing, China Minmetals is headquartered in Beijing and attaches great importance to the business in Beijing. Tongzhou District, as the sub-center spatially supporting and functionally complementing Beijing, is marked by the obvious location advantages, superior geological location, rapid economic development and vast market space. It has strong development potential and vast space for development. In recent years, China Minmetals has shown rapid growth of its business in Tongzhou District. It has undertaken a number of large-scale projects in the region including Universal Studios Beijing. China Minmetals will give full play to its advantages, further strengthen communication with CPC Tongzhou District Committee and Tongzhou District People's Government, continuously expand the scope of cooperation between two sides, strive to carry out in-depth and close cooperation in more fields, and better assist Tongzhou District in achieving high-quality economic and social development.
Zeng Zanrong welcomed Guo Wenqing and the delegation and thanked China Minmetals for its outstanding contribution to the economic and social development of Tongzhou District. According to Zeng, Tongzhou District is accelerating the implementation of the strategic plan to become a sub-center spatially supporting and functionally complementing Beijing, and striving to create a development pattern of "one body, two wings", further undertaking the functions of the urban center and population evacuation. It continuously plays a demonstration and driving role in relieving non-capital functions, and contributes to form a vivid pattern of "two parallel wings" with Beijing's sub-center and Xiong'an New Area, Hebei Province. Tongzhou District has vast development space and huge investment potential. It is hoped that China Minmetals and Tongzhou District will maintain good and close communication and further establish a long-term, stable, mutually beneficial and win-win comprehensive strategic cooperation relationship based on mutual trust and strength. China Minmetals are invited to show greater strength in the investment and construction of Tongzhou District, so as to achieve a higher level of win-win cooperation between the two sides.
