On December 24th, Guo Wenqing, China Minmetals' President and Party Group Deputy Secretary and MCC Chairman, and his delegation visited Hunan and met with Xu Dazhe, Deputy Secretary of the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee and Governor of Hunan Province. The two sides made an in-depth exchange and discussion on deepening the cooperation between enterprises and local partners, accelerating the implementation of existing projects, promoting the high-quality development of enterprises and other topics.
Xu Dazhe welcomed Guo Wenqing and his delegation for visiting Hunan at the end of this year, congratulated on the coming operation of Shuikoushan copper, lead and zinc industrial base project and national new energy material base project (Phase I) in Wangcheng, Changsha and introduced this year's social and economic development in Hunan. He pointed out that the central enterprise is an important pillar for China's national economy and the mainstay for the state-owned economy to play a leading role. As a key central enterprise having established fruitful cooperation with Hunan, China Minmetals has contributed to the local development in society and economy for a long time. Hunan Provincial Committee and Government attach high importance to the cooperation with central enterprises, including China Minmetals, and will offer favorable polices and projects to support the development of China Minmetals in Hunan. "Putting the two major projects into operation marks a new beginning for bilateral cooperation. I hope we two sides will jointly implement spirits of the Central Economic Working Conference convened recently, practice five major development concepts and promote the high-quality development of Hunan's manufacturing industry," he said.
Guo Wenqing expressed his gratitude for the warm reception given by Xu Dazhe and the support for China Minmetals' development in Hunan offered by the Hunan Provincial Committee and Government.

"For a long time, China Minmetals has attached high importance to the strategic cooperation with Hunan and accelerated its development within the province continuously. At present, total assets of its subsidiaries exceed RMB 200 billion," Guo Wenqing pointed out. China Minmetals actually implements Xi Jinping Thought on Ecological Civilization, fully promotes the construction of copper, lead and zinc industrial bases, accelerates the transformation of Zhuzhou Smelter Group and fulfills its role in No. 1 Key Project on the protection and treatment of Xiangjiang River on time, delivering a satisfactory job to Hunan people. This fully demonstrates that China Minmetals not only dedicates to acquiring resources but also pays attention to the protective development and application of resources. New energy material base project has maintained a good momentum of development with huge development potential and space and will make new and greater contribution to Hunan's high-quality development.
Gou Wenqing stated that General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speeches at a gathering celebrating the 40th anniversary of China's reform and opening-up and the Central Economic Working Conference indicated the direction and offered guidance for central enterprises to deepen their reform, accelerate their transformation and upgrading as well as realize a high-quality development. During Hunan's new journey of reform and opening-up, China Minmetals will implement new development concepts, shoulder its responsibilities as a central enterprise and act as a leading role. Besides, it will deepen the cooperation with Hunan on non-ferrous metal smelting, new energy, urban development and construction and other fields, accelerate the implementation of existing projects and expand its business, thus promoting Hunan's high-quality development.
