On September 25, mayor Ye Luzhong met with the delegates led by Zhan Qingchi, secretary general of China Taiwan Business Development Association, and Shi Chunsheng, vice-president of Anhui Jing’an Investment Group. Issues on old-age care and health industry of the city have been discussed in detail.
Ye showed welcome to Zhan’s visit. Ye pointed out that the satisfactory natural environment and advantageous transportation are considered essential for further developing the old-age care and health industry in Lu’an City. Taiwan, which has witnessed many successful cases in the past, can provide our city with experience and methods to learn from. The cooperation between these two parties will see great potential and bright prospects. It is expected that they could strengthen communication with each other to reach consensus on corresponding cooperation. Discussions should be held on the prospects and methods to develop old-age care and health industry. In-depth cooperation is encouraged to achieve mutual benefits and win-win situation. Ye required that departments concerned should always bear the development goals, demands and project characteristics in mind, to implement the cooperation projects as soon as possible. On the one hand, details of cooperated projects should be confirmed, while on the other hand, more possibilities can be explored. For example, exchange and cooperation may be carried out in the following areas: new technology for medical care-based healthy industry, care method and medical care health management, old-age care, and the management rules and systems for nursing homes. In this way, the establishment of old-age care service stations can be accelerated, and our city will see a new chapter in this industry.
Zhan and others shared that, through this field trip, they’ve seen the good ecological and investment conditions in Lu’an with their own eyes and they agree that there will be bright future for the old-age care and health industry here. They would like to enhance mutual communication and accelerate the implementation of cooperation projects. The goal is to provide high-quality old-age care services for the elderly in Lu’an city as soon as possible, to bring the elderly happiness and the families assurance. More explorations will be made on better developing this industry and positive results can be expected.
Representatives attending the meeting are from the People’s Government of Jin’an District, the municipal government office, Municipal United Front Work Department, Municipal Development and Reform Commission, Municipal Housing and Urban-Rural Development Bureau, and Municipal Natural Resources and Planning Bureau.
