On May 27, 2021, the 8th China Entrepreneur Development Annual Conference will be held in Chengdu. Song Zhiping, President of China Association of Listed Companies, delivered a speech at the meeting.
What is an entrepreneur? In Song Zhiping’s view, innovation and wealth creation are the general characteristics of entrepreneurs. But for Chinese entrepreneurs, there must be patriotism.
“Entrepreneurs must be a group of people who create wealth, but we must get rich first and help become rich, help the poor, support education, and fulfill social responsibilities. This is what we entrepreneurs should do.” Song Zhiping said. Entrepreneurs who meet the requirements of the times must focus on whether they have repaid the society and fulfilled their social responsibilities.
Song Zhiping gives an example, Recently, Mr. Cao Dewang used 10 billion from his wealth to establish the University of Applied Technology in Fujian. , This is a big thing. For example, in Germany, every city has a university of applied technology, which is equivalent to the former engineering college in China.and also Wang Shi donated part of Vanke’s corporate shares to Tsinghua and set up Tsinghua’s largest fund worth more than 7 billion to support education .
So Song Zhiping sighed that if entrepreneurs want to be respected, they must be educated, they must alleviate the poor, and they must support disadvantaged groups.
“The next step is to redefine entrepreneurs. We will not only define the success of the enterprise and how much wealth it creates, but also our innovation ability and fulfillment of social responsibility. Monopoly is not equal to entrepreneur . “Song Zhiping said.
