A senior government delegation visited Yingli Green Energy’s headquarters in Baoding on March 5 and 6, 2010. Attendees included Jiang Zemin, former president of China, Zeng Peiyan, former vice premier of China, and Zhang Guobao, director of the National Energy Administration of China.
During the two-day tour, the delegation visited Yingli Green Energy’s vertically integrated manufacturing facilities, including the company’s state-of-the-art polysilicon manufacturing plant, ‘Fine Silicon’. The company’s management also offered a briefing on the company’s business strategies, market position and the prospects of the PV industry, especially in China.
“It is a great honor and privilege to host Jiang and the delegation at our headquarters,” said Liansheng Miao, chairman and CEO of Yingli Green Energy. “This high level visit once again reflects Yingli Green Energy’s influence in the PV industry, and is also a positive sign showing valuable attention and support to renewable energy companies. We are inspired by the guests’ interest in our industry as well as their compliments on our achievements. We look forward to leveraging our leading position in the industry to further contribute to a cleaner, greener world.”
Miao also noted news reports that the agendas for this year’s plenary sessions of the National People’s Congress and the People’s Political Consultative Conference in Beijing include topics such as enhancing environmental protection and developing a low carbon economy, which is a positive sign for the continued growth of the domestic PV market and China-based solar companies.
