From October 11 to 12, Wu Jinsong, Secretary of the Party Leadership Group of Anhui Provincial Department of Science and Technology, led a delegation to Wuhu to inspect technological innovation and held a meeting. Vice Mayor Zhu Di‘e presided over the meeting.
After listening to the establishment of technological innovation system in Wuhu and the speeches of entrepreneurs’ representatives, Wu Jinsong emphasized that technological activities are economic activities, and only by highlighting the dominant position of enterprises can we speed up the construction of a higher level of technological innovation system. We should further change our thoughts and the working mode, focus on key links of technological innovation, and roll out policies on the allocation of innovation elements to stimulate the innovation vitality of enterprises. Technological innovation should be accompanied by institutional innovation. Efforts should be made to strengthen enterprises’ dominant position in technological innovation. We should boost the principal role of enterprises in innovation decision-making, innovation investment, talent introduction and achievement transformation, helping enterprises to reduce costs and increase efficiency. Science and technology departments at provincial and municipal levels should make joint efforts and facilitate technological innovation as the new driver and contributor for the high-quality development.
During his stay in Wuhu, Wu Jinsong came to Chery Automobile Co., Ltd. and the Institute of International Engineering Education of Anhui Polytechnic University to learn about the improvement of enterprise innovation capability and the implementation of the pilot reform of scientific and research findings in colleges and universities, and visited Xidian–Wuhu Research Institute, CETC Diamond Aircraft, Huaming Aviation, Haery Aviation and other enterprises.
