"Shanghai Securities News, a newspaper published by Xinhua News Agency as of 1991, is the first national financial daily newspaper mainly focusing on securities information since the establishment of the People's Republic of China, and a publisher of related industry information designated by China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC), China Insurance Regulatory Commission (CIRC) and China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC). Generally published in 20 editions, the newspaper boasts a maximum daily circulation of 800,000 copies."
Mr. Lei Zhongxiao, Deputy General Manager of Shanghai Securities News, highly recognized the brand strength of COFCO and GrandJoy Holdings as well as the development prospect of MCSC. With the closer linkage between the "Belt and Road" Economic Belt and the Middle and Lower Reaches of the Yangtze River Economic Belt, he said, companies listed on Shenzhen Stock Exchange have been dying to transfer their production capacity centres and functional management centres to the central and western regions, so as to reduce production and operation costs. The company plans to visit the Sichuan area and MCSC project to gain better knowledge about the opportunities present and future cooperation.
