Other information

The cordial care of national leaders

On July 4, 2009, Premier Wen Jiabao inspected Donghu Vinegar Garden in the pavilion of Shanxi Laochen Vinegar Group Factory. Wen Jiabao and the workers and masters of the vinegar factory sat around and asked with them for the upgrade of Shanxi's industrial structure.

Wen Jiabao knows Shanxi industry very well. He said that there are three major industries in Shanxi: one is the pillar industry with coal, coke, smelting and electricity as the main industry, the other is the traditional processing industry such as old vinegar, and the third is the emerging industry such as high-tech industry.

Wen Jiabao told the people present that the first type of pillar industries should integrate high-tech and information technology into them so as to make their technology content higher, products safer and reliable, and have higher quality and efficiency; the second type of traditional processing industries can also integrate new technologies to achieve large-scale production, while maintaining traditional culture. Emerging industries include new materials, new energy and energy-saving and environmental protection technologies.

In particular, he pointed out that the safety and quality of the old vinegar from Donghu Lake in Shanxi Province, Fenjiu from Xinghua Village, Zhuyeqing and other traditional food industries must be put in the first place. If an enterprise wants to be sustainable and able to stand, it must be honest and of good quality. It depends on its real ability to break into the market.

In 2009, Jia Qinglin, the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and Chairman of the CPPCC National Committee, also visited Donghu Vinegar Garden. In addition, Donghu Vinegar Garden also received Bo Xilai and other leading comrades.
