New Year’s Speech by the Chairman
Dear colleagues of Xingye:
As the New Year of 2013 is approaching, I would first of all on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Company express my sincere greetings to all the employees, and extend my New Year greetings to all colleagues and their families!
In the past year, all of us worked hand in hand and side by side for our common pursuit with one thought and concentrated efforts. In 2012, against the backdrop of the global economic downturn, the overall slowdown in domestic economic growth, and decline in metal prices, all the Xingye people worked together and ensured the steady development of the Company, and completed well the annual production and operation tasks, which has laid a solid foundation for the enterprises’ transformation and upgrading and future development.
It is owing to our joint efforts and effective implementation that we have made steady progress in mineral processing, mining, geology and other work, which enables us to promote efficiency with technology, achieve the internal control construction and management system optimization, and promotes the management level upgrade. In this way, we gained momentum and energy for rebirth by overcoming the difficulties at the key development moment, changed work style and strengthened enterprise management effectiveness. At the same time, the 80,000 tons of lead smelting project of Shuangyuan Company has been put into operation, which enables the Company to extend the industrial chain. After a year of efforts, our company has made some progress in the production, technology, management and other aspects of work. All of these achievements are embodied the hard work and sweat of all the people of Xingye Mining. Taking this opportunity, I would like to, on behalf of the Board of Directors, express my heartfelt gratitude - Thank you!
Comrades, the curtain for the New Year was about to be pulled open, yesterday’s achievements and honors will provide a strong driving force for our growth. The New Year’s bell is inspiring, calling on us to go toward a new higher goal with our strong pace. The formulation of strategic development planning objectives of Xingye Mining gives us a new task and a new mission. I believe that as long as we have this goal of Xingye Mining, our cause will achieve greater development.
Hopefully, we greet 2013, all the people of Xingye should always be energetic and refreshed and do a good job in 2013!
Finally, wish all your wishes come true in the new year; wish you all a harmonious and happy family and good health!
