Dear Mr. Jin and other Founders of Wellhope,
It is my honor to deliver a short speech on behalf of the Dutch delegation present here tonight, including all my family members and our supervisory board.
We are here to express our respect and gratitude for what Wellhope has accomplished.Wellhope's success is remarkable. But the way in which they have achieved this success, in loyal friendship and honesty, deserves our biggest respect.
When Mr. Jin sold us the shares, he made a lot of promises about the future performance. As you all know, Mr. Jin does not lack ambition and his promises were a reflection of his ambition. So during our negotiations I said that he was too optimistic. I remember asking:'' what are the threats for Wellhope?'' He replied: '' don't you believe me?'' My honest answer was: '' not really.'' We then smiled at each other. That's how our relationship started.
Today I can say: Mr. Jin, Wellhope,you have kept your promises and exceeded our expectations many times.
Through the years I visited Wellhope many times and most of the time there were some surprises. For example I learned by experience that sea cucumbers are not edible plants but sticky slimy animals. I was shocked to see the head of the chicken on the table. Why do you do that? I think the Chinese had too much hunger in the past. One day a turtle was served. I did not have much appetite. We don't eat turtles. Then I learned that it is better to eat a turtle than to be a turtle.
Just like food, the traffic also surprises me all the time.Once we were on the highway and suddenly cars were coming at us in the wrong direction. We call that ghostriders. It's scary and something you just don't do. I was shocked. A few minutes later we were ghostriders ourselves. The road was blocked by a traffic accident. In Henan I had to catch a flight via Beijing to Hong Kong and then to South Africa. I could not miss that one. But the driver could not see well, he needed glasses (spectacles) and did not dare to drive faster than 50. That was a real test to my nerves. ''Faster, faster'' I said all the time. I only just made it. Jin and me once had a terrible delay at the airport because of a snowstorm. We spend many hours talking and then missed our flight because we were waiting for the wrong gate.
I remember we were going to have aboard meeting at the lovely tropical island of Hainan. I was dreaming about palm trees and sandy beaches. After too many beers in a too cold restaurant we started singing karaoke on a huge square. It did not take long and we were the only ones there. The next day we went to the stunningly beautiful beach to do scuba diving. Great idea. Another wonderful experience with my Chinese friends.
Always surprises, always something to laugh, very flexible, never a dull moment. Some small things go wrong, but the big things always succeed. Wellhope is much more than our most important investment. People of Wellhope, you are our friends.
Tonight, let's celebrate, let's cheers to our everlasting friendship!
尊重的金卫东董事长, 尊重的博狗游戏集团全体员工, 在座的各位嘉宾、同仁：
Respected Chairman Jin Weidong , all Wellhope Employees, Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Friends,
Tonight we are gathered here on the 20th Anniversary of Wellhope. Nationwide and worldwide guests are coming along to share the happiness and glorious achievement, showing our heartful congratulations and best wishes.
At this very moment, as the old friends of Wellhope who have witnessed its fast and healthy development, our hearts are filled with respect, confidence and hope.
Where does the respect come from?
It comes from the respect for hard work, knowledge, creation and talents. It comes from Wellhope's 20 years diligent striving and the commitment to the society and to the people.
From less than 1 million RMB startup capital to nowadays over 10 billion RMB turnover, Wellhope now ranks top 10 in China feed industry, and it has been the only one enterprise in Shenyang that went public on the Shanghai main board within recent ten years.
From the very beginning as the first agri-tech private enterprise in the old industrial based city, to nowadays nationwide enterprise, Wellhope has set up successful corporation with oversea companies from Europe, Asia and Africa, etc.
During the past 20 years, with hardworking and enterprising spirit, Wellhope and its employees showed us a splendid journey of striving and fighting together. It has proved the outstanding ability of thinking and innovation, the nobleness and the excellent personality of enterprisers, especially for the elites. It has also demonstrated the brilliant hero character of Chinese intellectuals in the new era.
Where does the confidence come from?
The confidence is from the development history of Wellhope, from the excellent core team led by Chairman Jin Weidong. It also comes from the unique Wellhope culture.
It is always said that we should strengthen confidence of the theory and the system of Chinese characteristic socialism. The fact is that the basis should be culture self-confidence which derives from persuasive examples around us.
Besides the material wealth achievement, the success of Wellhope is the commitment to the society, to our people, to the youth.
Chairman Jin Weidong and all Wellhope employees constantly stick to Wellhope Vision, always put customers' needs first, always conduct business honestly, always provide value to our society. Wellhope has built 20 hope primary schools across China, built one gymnasium for Shenyang Agricultural University.Chairman Jin Weidong wins the respect because of his commitment to culture self-confidence, to the employees, and to the young generation. This is the core value specially contributed by Wellhope, giving us much confidence.
Where does the hope come from?
Hope is from the great potential and the development motivation of Wellhope, and it is also from the accumulated assets of Wellhope.
Chinese private companies can only exist 5 years in average, therefore, the 20 years success of Wellhope will bring hope to other enterprises, to the government,especially during the period of economic downturn in Liaoning-Shenyang area. These excellent entrepreneurs like Chairman Jin Weidong, will make the new start-ups feel the light.
In 2006, Chairman Jin Weidong has been awarded as the national outstanding socialism builder. He also has been awarded other honors. The honors do tell something. But more important is that he has many fans, called Jin Fan, loved and respected by them. We are so proud we have such an excellent member in the People's Political Consultative Conference of Liaoning Province.
Last year, I wrote a congratulatory letter to Wellhope IPO, I wrote that, the success of Wellhope was the success of pursuing for truth, the success of respecting and promoting science, the success of sincere cooperation and the success of surpassing the fame and gain. Today, at a brand-new start, we fully believe Wellhope will realize healthier and further development. Wish Wellhope become one hundred years old enterprise.
