Guangxi Pharmaceutical Research Institute and Guangxi Pharmaceutical Testing Site Office, a set of leading groups.

In 1962, in order to implement the eight-character policy of "readjustment, consolidation, enrichment and improvement" of the Central Committee, the Guangxi Regional People's Committee at that time authorized the revocation of the Guangxi Institute of Pharmaceutical Research, retained 35 technicians and merged them into the drug testing ground to continue the research work.

In 1963, in order to carry out the call of the Central Committee that the whole Party and the whole people should start work, run agriculture and grain in a big way, and the directives of the Party Committee of the District on reducing the population of cities and towns, further reduce the staff and workers, save state financial expenditure and support the agricultural front, according to the experience of the production of medicinal materials in recent years, it was considered inappropriate to continue to produce medicinal materials with the workers and land on the whole site, and it was necessary to turn to produce food. Lord.

On May 14, 1963, the No. 6 Health Department of Guangxi District People's Committee (63) approved the "Report on Reducing the Scale of Pharmaceutical Testing Ground and Renaming it as Pharmaceutical Research Institute", which agreed to reduce the scale of Pharmaceutical Testing Ground and rename it as Pharmaceutical Research Institute, with the main task of drug research and to plant some medicinal materials according to the labor force situation. The staffing establishment is set at 150 (435 employees, 150 retained and 285 streamlined). The 290 workers who belonged to Santang Township Liberation Brigade in Yongning County, except 30 who had been transferred to the production team of medicinal materials, remained to grow medicines, the rest of them were assigned to grow grain mainly and changed ownership by the whole people to collective ownership.

On October 19, No. 456 of the Secret Letter of the General Office (63) of the Guangxi District People's Committee issued an order. In view of the fact that the Nanning Municipal People's Committee has expressed its consent to the collective peasants allocated by the Drug Research Institute in the receiving area, it requested the Department of Health to contact Nanning directly for handover procedures. On December 9, the Changdao Commune and the Institute of Pharmaceutical Research held a meeting of Representatives and formally handed over to the leadership of Changdao Commune (for the convenience of leadership, the Commune set up the Landing Bridge Bridge Brigade to lead the above six production teams).
