October 7 this year was the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the Shyaman Economic Special Area by the Chinese Council of State. In the year 1980, the Chinese State Council formally permitted that a 2.5 square kilometer land in the Huli area of Shyman be made an economic special area, making Shyaman one of the four regions to establish the first economic special area in China. Has been made. In the year 1985, the State Council allowed the entire Shyaman to become an economic special area. In June of the same year, Xi Chinfing went to work with Shapeman from Hapei. While recalling this, he said that in the year 1985, I came to Shyman and became the Deputy Mayor. That was my 32nd birthday on the same day.
As a leader and builder of the Shyaman Economic Special Area, Xi Chinfing has conducted a series of exercises related to reform and openness there. He chalked out a strategy for economic and social development of Shyaman between 1985-2000, participated in the establishment of Shyman Airlines, reformed old national enterprises, simplified formalities to a large extent through structural reforms and gave more powers to enterprises.
In June of 1986, Xi Jinping once said in a speech that Shyaman means the gate of a big building. Here we can also understand this as a door to openness. I hope we will be able to open up well here.
When Xi Chinfing visited Shyaman again in September of 2017, seeing the rich achievements in this economic special area, he said that Shyaman’s development is only a microcosm of the process of reform and openness in China.
The aviation industry is a sign of openness in a city. Shyman’s airport was very small 30 years ago. The number of aircraft was also very low. At the same time, Xi Chinfing, who was associated with Shyaman Airlines, tried hard to get a loan of US $ 18 million from the Kuwait government, which could expand the airport. Also, with the guarantee of the financial institution, Shyman Airlines has leased two Boeing-737 aircraft from American Boeing Company.
Significantly, Shyman Airlines is the first mixed-capital corporation in China, which is only the initial improvement of civil aviation system in China. Now Shyman Airlines has more than 200 aircraft and over 350 flight routes.
