On February 21st, MCC President Zhang Mengxing met Licang District Committee Secretary Wang Xijing in Qingdao City. Both parties held a meeting in a cordial and friendly atmosphere, and thoroughly exchanged opinions in terms of further reinforcing cooperation in such fields as comprehensive urban development, municipal infrastructure and theme parks.
Zhang Mengxing first introduced the MCC Group’s development and historical evolution, pointing out that as a pioneer and constructor of the steel and iron industry of new China, MCC has undertaken 90% of the design and construction tasks of domestically large-scale iron and steel enterprises, and occupies 60% of the world’s metallurgical construction market. Plentiful and substantial achievements have been gained in its four top industry sectors of project contracting, real estate development, equipment manufacturing and resource development. Zhang Mengxing expressed that MCC has practiced its new strategic positioning of being the ‘national team of metallurgical construction, the main force of capital construction and the pacesetter of emerging industries, insisting on taking the road of hi-tech construction in the long term’ in recent years, and successfully realized transformation. It has achieved proud performances in such fields as comprehensive pipe galleries, beautiful villages, smart city and sponge city technology and theme parks, completing many large-scale emerging industry projects and developing into an expert solver of comprehensive urban problems. Last year, Qingdao City signed a strategic cooperation agreement with the MCC Group which has gradually been promoted and landed. MCC is willing to give full play to its advantages in design, construction, technology, funds and other aspects, and carry out thorough cooperation with Licang District in such fields as underground comprehensive pipe galleries, urban complexes, theme parks, municipal infrastructure construction and so on, thereby jointly advancing the urban construction of Qingdao City.
Wang Xijing welcomed and thanked Zhang Mengxing and his delegation, and highly affirmed MCC’s abundant strength as a central enterprise with a long history which plays an important leading role in such fields as municipal infrastructure construction and theme parks. Wang Xijing pointed out that Licang District is located in the core region of Qingdao City, and the Licang District Committee and District Government insist on innovation, guidance and emptying the cage to change the bird, rush to grasp the chance to move old industry enterprises, energetically implement innovation-driven development strategies, and promote the depth adjustment and smooth and steady shifting of industrial structures. Along with the gradual shutdown and closure of the original chemical engineering and steel and iron enterprises, 17 km2 of land now ushers in new opportunities for Licang’s development, especially the opening of Qingdao North Station. The regions surrounding the North Station will gradually become a core traffic business district of the city. Licang hopes to cooperate further with such large-scale central enterprises as MCC so as to realize win-win results.
In the afternoon of the same day, in the company of the representatives of relevant departments, Zhang Mengxing and his delegation carried out a field investigation and survey in such regions as the Qingdao North Station District, Postal Cross-border E-commerce Industry Park and International Yuanshi Harbor.
