And new opportunities for market demand. Only by embracing the world can we embrace tomorrow; only by working together can we achieve steady progress. Zhejiang is willing to work with you to continue to promote the liberalization and facilitation of trade and investment, accelerate the planning and promotion of multiple major platforms, major industries, and major projects, continue to deepen cooperation in the fields of oil and gas storage and transportation, processing, and services, and promote the development of the entire oil and gas industry chain.

On the 31st, Wang Hao took a boat to Liuheng Island in Putuo District, and Jintang Island and Cezi Island in Dinghai District to inspect the construction progress of the Liuheng Bridge Project, the Xiaoguoju Reclamation Block Project, the Yongzhou Railway Project, and the Jintang New Material Project. He emphasized that major projects and good projects are scarce resources and an important support for stabilizing the economic market. Governments at all levels must resolutely implement the decisions and deployments of the central and provincial Party committees, seize the policy “window period” to focus on implementing a number of major infrastructure and industrial projects that lay the foundation and work in the long run, earnestly focus on the three links of quality, safety, and progress, and allow the projects to be completed as soon as possible to achieve benefits and provide strong support for the steady progress and quality of the province’s economy.
