At the same time, all the Yinzhou-born celebrities have always kept in mind their hometown friendship, been paying attention to the changes in their hometown, and been supporting the development of their hometown. Together with people now in Yinzhou, they vigorously carried forward the “4 Knowledge” Spirit in Ningbo, seized major opportunities, working hard and taking the lead for the promotion of the development in Yinzhou. They created 1/5 of the city’s total economic output with 1/12 of the city’s land, contributing a lot to the high-quality development in Ningbo, fully proving that a better Yinzhou a better Ningbo and a better Ningbo a better Yinzhou.
Chu Yinliang warmly welcomed all Yinzhou-born celebrities, guests and friends, and extended cordial greetings to Yinzhou-born people from all over the world. He said that Yinzhou, once the first county of Mingzhou and now the core urban area of Ningbo, has the most vivid interpretation and the longest inheritance of “4 Knowledge and 4 Practices” and “Unity of Knowledge and Practice”. In short, Yinzhou is “innovating from the old and striving for new highs”.
Chu Yinliang said that innovation is the most sonorous step for “Unity of Knowledge and Practice” in Yinzhou, which has been promoting Yinzhou to keep striving for one new high and another. He described the spirit of Yinzhou people’s “innovation” in the past thousand years with “4 First”, namely “righteousness, opportunity-seeking, implementation and striving always come first”. He introduced in detail the Yinzhou-born celebrities, scientific pioneers, heroic perons, and caring people who emphasized learning and national justice. He told the legends of “where there are Yinzhou people, there would be a market” as well as the legend of Ningbo Merchants. He looked back on how Yinzhou seized the great opportunities such as the reform and opening up and administrative adjustment to achieve development with a great leap forward, and summarized the remarkable achievements that had been made by Yinzhou people in the new era.
Chu also said that striving for the highest level is the constant original intention of “Unity of Knowledge and Practice” of Yinzhou people, which leads Yinzhou to constantly change the old for a new. At present, the “Yinzhou” giant ship is moving forward at full speed towards being a demonstration area for “2 high and 4 good”. In the future, Yinzhou will be a district that would strive actively with courage and a district that dares to solve any problems in the front for a better district of Yinzhou. We should vigorously stimulate the spirit of “hardworking, responsibility and progress” and focus on promoting the development of an innovative ecological system of “Rainforest Style”, “246” Hundred-Billion-and Trillion Industrial Clusters and “225” Foreign Trade Double-Trillion Yinzhou Action, “6 New Space”, and “six 1-square-kilometer future industrial communities”, as well as global governance innovation, etc., and stride forward to be among the top 3 of the top 100 districts in China in terms of comprehensive strength. He hoped that the vast majority of Yinzhou people from all over the world and people who are “helping Yinzhou” would work together to create a new realm, compose a new chapter and tell a good story of Yinzhou for further development in Yinzhou.
At the end of his speech, Chu said affectionately that no matter how big the world is, this is home; no matter how far you go, Yinzhou will always look forward to you, welcome you, and wait for you at home. No matter where we are, Yinzhou will always need your wisdom, your strength, and your cheers. The future is coming, not far away, and no matter when, a better Yinzhou will inspire us to work hand in hand and forge ahead!
