The ACFIC (All China Federation of Industry and Commerce) will work together with private entrepreneurs to bear fruit in the new era. The ACFIC will continue to take efforts to improve business environment and build the new model of government-business relationship, as well as increase effective supports and services to private enterprises and private entrepreneurs.
In the new era, the entrepreneurship will focus on bearing fruit, faith, innovation, sense of responsibility, sense of mission, respecting life, advocating expertise and respecting market rules. These requirements are not only for the entrepreneurs, but also for young people who are starting up businesses, or preparing a launch. The new era requires entrepreneurs with sense of social responsibility, instead of businessmen who only buy high and sell low.
What makes China prosperous and strong? Reform and opening-up drive which began 40 years ago. The prominent mark of China's reform and opening-up is the entrepreneurship.
Chinese entrepreneurs have indomitable spirit and strong ability to learn, and they are intelligent as well as can bear hardships and stand hard work.
A report delivered at the 19th CPC National Congress said the original aspiration and the mission of Chinese Communists is to seek happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation for the Chinese nation. That is the Chinese entrepreneurs' mission.
Chinese entrepreneurs will play an increasing role as China will continue to develop.
Enterprises should not only stick to innovation, but also bear social responsibility. New Hope Group will spend five years to train 100,000 technicians for rural areas.
The entrepreneurship includes tenacious spirit to startup, courageous spirit to innovate, bearing responsibility to serve the country, open attitude to cooperate, abiding the law and trustworthiness, and spirit of struggle to pursue acme.
The private enterprises will be the engine that will drive China's economy to grow.
In the new era, entrepreneurs should pursue maximum social value. The entrepreneur should not only create social wealth, but also promote social progress.
In past years, thanks to the reform and opening-up, China's economy experienced high-speed growth stage. In the new era, the economy's high-quality growth stage still needs the reform and opening-up policy because efficiency to increase needs system to guarantee, and only the reform and opening-up policy can build the system that favors innovation and startups.
The entrepreneurs are not passive followers of reform, but active participators and impellers.
The entrepreneurship is to bear risks because risk and opportunity coexist. The disadvantaged entrepreneurs should pay attention, and entrepreneurs should remain calm and undaunted to face failure.
China's reform and opening-up, globalization, and high technology development facilitate entrepreneurs to achieve success.
The new model of government-business relationship indicates a new era, a new historic stage to Chinese entrepreneurs to grow. That means, the new era could be the best time since China launched the reform and opening-up 40 years ago.
Without high-quality workers, "upgrading the industry" will just be a mere phrase.
As the country changes management and training modes as well as the society wakes up to the craftsmanship spirit and the value of skilful craftsman, the situation of lacking skillful workers will turn.
