The 2010 Shanghai World Expo
will not only offer golden business opportunities for state-owned enterprises
and foreign companies, but also for the country's growing private sector.
Jing Shuping, former chairman of the All-China Federation of Industry and
Commerce, made the remark Sunday at the International Business Leader's Advisory
Council for the Mayor of Shanghai.
He said that after more than 20 years of development, China's private
enterprises have made great progress in assets accumulation, marketing, talent
training, technology innovation and enterprise management, and have grown to be
one of the country 's major economic driving forces.
Private enterprises not only play a leading role in labor- intensive
industries and service industries, but also are developing well in some
capital-intensive industries and technology-intensive industries, he said.
Jing suggested the Shanghai municipal government offer an open and fair
competition environment for the private sector to participate in the 2010 World
Expo in Shanghai. He urged the government to release more information to the
public so that blind investment can be avoided.
