Shenzhen at 40
Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening-up policy for Shenzhen
August 26, 2020 was the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the Shenzhen Special Zone; Immetech Industrial wishes Shenzhen happy birthday on this major milestone. In just 40 years, Shenzhen has transformed from a small fishing village with a population of just over 30,000 people and two or three cratered streets into a metropolis with a population of tens of millions. Not only is it the first special economic zone in China and a window of reform and opening-up, it has maintained a very high degree of openness and talent attraction since its development. In the past few decades, Shenzhen has led the world in terms of economic growth, population growth and the number of skyscrapers. It is also an economic center closely related to the global economy, and one of the most active. Nowhere else in the world can you find a city like Shenzhen, with more than 20 million people and average age of 33.
From pioneer to trendsetter, Shenzhen has become the birthplace of Tencent, Huawei, ZTE, DJI, Foxconn, Ping An, BYD and other internationally-renowned innovative enterprises, leading China’s scientific and technological innovation. Shenzhen has achieved at least the following three points:
Firstly, through institutional innovation, Shenzhen has attracted many outstanding talents and produced numerous outstanding entrepreneurs, who are engaged in various industrial economic activities in Shenzhen, especially in the field of innovative science and technology. Talent is the primary productive force for industrial development.
Secondly, Shenzhen has developed a rich industrial base, and industry is the primary driving force of urban development. From processing trade at the beginning of the reformed Shenzhen period, to electronic information later, Shenzhen has a solid strong industrial supporting capacity. At the same time, it constantly upgrades the industry via market rules.
Thirdly, Shenzhen has formed an open and interactive relationship with the surrounding cities. For example, in the early years, it was highly dependent on Hong Kong; later, some industries transferred from Hong Kong to Shenzhen. Later still, Shenzhen transferred some manufacturing industries to Dongguan, Huizhou and now the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. Shenzhen itself has a small land area, but has a very strong capacity to expand outward and a strong ability to drive dispersal and overflow. This depends on the different division of labor between Shenzhen and surrounding cities, which is based on the market economy.
Looking at the reform and opening-up experience of Shenzhen Special Economic Zone as a microcosm, we have learned the methods and gained confidence. We have complete certainty that we can handle pressure and challenges with ease:
- At Immetech, we always believe that employees are the cornerstone of the company; the continuous innovation of outstanding employees leads us to become a leading enterprise of new craftsmanship.
- Following over 10 years of efforts, Immetech has developed from a professional tool manufacturer to a one-stop solution provider in project development, production, sales and service. We are continuously growing stronger and introducing advanced equipment from Japan and Germany.
- Since it was established in 2009 Immetech Industrial has always endeavoured with innovations in working models and system: Internally, we are continuously upgrading equipment and technology, and the shareholding system was reformed five years ago, allowing the core management and technical staff to own Immetech shares, to enhance the vitality and combat effectiveness of the enterprise. Externally, we have established marketing centers abroad, and innovatively proposed the symbiosis and win-win mode, so as to give more partners and customers profits. Let’s be bigger and stronger together!
Looking forward to the future, China has entered the critical stage of transformation and upgrading. At the same time, China is facing many challenges, such as the impact of the epidemic and changes in the international situation. Difficulties are the examination papers handed to us by The Times, and challenges are the only way to make brilliant achievements. Immetech Industrial will continue to learn from the pioneer city of Shenzhen, advance together with our motherland, strive firmly, march forward courageously, practice good industrial culture, grasp the opportunity of The Times, optimize the resource allocation with professional ability, make greater contribution to the Chinese economy to achieve high-quality development, and provide more molds and products and services for customers around the world!
