On January 17, in Linzhuang Village, Qing’an Town, Suining County, Jiangsu Province, under the clear blue sky and warm winter sun, new high-standard factory buildings rose from the ground, and red lanterns hung high on the branches. Groups of villagers waved shovels to level the park site, “playing” a “new movement” to welcome the spring of rural revitalization.
“Let’s work harder, everyone. Today, there are still a few capable people who have returned to their hometowns for the New Year to come and see our new factory building, and they are planning to move the company to Linzhuang Village. We will definitely attract Golden Phoenix after we build a nest… …” Zhao Fei, Secretary of the General Party Branch of Linzhuang Village, who was working, cheered loudly for the villagers who were working together. In 2022, Linzhuang Village invested more than 2 million yuan to build a new high-standard factory building of 3,000 square meters on the site of the old village department and the abandoned school.
There are many successful entrepreneurs in Linzhuang Village. There are 3 people with industries of more than 100 million yuan, more than 30 people with industries of more than 10 million yuan, and more than 100 people with industries of more than one million yuan. Linzhuang Village takes advantage of this superior resource to stimulate the enthusiasm of successful entrepreneurs abroad to invest in their hometown and open up a new path for the village’s collective economic development. Every year before the Spring Festival, the village will hold a “Linzhuang Village Business Symposium”. The able-bodied people who returned home and the villagers talked about the changes in their hometown, planned their development, painted their hometown scenery, and outlined the “scenic scene” of Linzhuang Village that is livable, suitable for business and beautiful.
Song Zhigao invested more than 50 million yuan to establish Suining Fuchangtai Electronic Technology Co., Ltd. in Linzhuang Village. It has 3 factories with a total area of 3,500 square meters and an annual output value of more than 20 million yuan, which has created more than 60 jobs. Xuzhou Benz Ecological Animal Husbandry Co., Ltd., with an investment of 50 million yuan, is located on the west side of Longyao Road in Linzhuang Village, with an annual output of 1,200 beef cattle and an annual output value of more than 20 million yuan.
Gao Conghua, chairman of Kebeilong Plastic Machinery Co., Ltd., Shunde District, Foshan City, Guangdong Province, is from Linzhuang Village. He has now reached an investment agreement with the Qing’an Town Government and the Linzhuang Village Committee. When it came to how much money he had donated to his hometown, he said with a smile: “I don’t remember the details, but during the epidemic prevention and control period in 2020 alone, I donated 200,000 yuan.”

After many meetings and discussions between the villager representative assembly, the party member representative assembly, and the members of the two committees of the village, Linzhuang Village reported to the party committee and government of Qing’an Town for approval, and decided to build an industrial park for capable people in Linzhuang Village to return to their hometowns to start businesses. Because the village headquarters is connected with the former abandoned school, Linzhuang Village planned to relocate the village headquarters. In this way, resources are concentrated to build two high-standard factory buildings on the old site of the village and the abandoned school, which are connected with Song Zhigao’s three factory buildings to form a line, and all efforts are made to “build a good nest” for the purpose of “attracting phoenixes”.
In 2021, Gao Conghua donated 120,000 yuan to purchase a mask production line for the village. However, because there is no factory building, the machine has been stored in the village. Although there is a high-standard factory building and a physical company responsible for production and operation has been successfully registered, the villagers have many concerns about collectively investing tens of thousands of yuan in purchasing raw materials. Therefore, Zhao Fei plans to use 30,000 yuan to buy raw materials for production in the new year of 2023. “If the company makes a profit, it belongs to the village collective; if it loses money, it belongs to itself.” He firmly believes that in such a good market environment, the collective economic development will be successful.
“We must take investment promotion and business development as the primary task of comprehensive rural revitalization, dare to do, dare to break through, dare to do, and dare to be the first.” Zhou Yang, the mayor of Qing’an Town, said that Qing’an Town focuses on plastic products, automotive electronics, and green building materials. Large leading industries implement industrial chain investment promotion, and take advantage of location and resources to carry out “investment promotion through business”. At present, Qing’an Town has signed a total of 33 major projects. The conversion rate of the project was ranked first in the county that year. (Finish)
