The city of Liuzhou in South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region recently carried out a one-month campaign to better serve the development of local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The campaign that kicked off on Wednesday will bring government officials, experts and business people together, aiming to aid SMEs in coping with difficulties they face in daily operation.
As many as 30 events are scheduled to be hold and early 1,000 companies are expected to benefit from them.
Zheng Junkang, the Party secretary of Liuzhou, said its development cannot live without the growth of these firms. He also pledged to better support them in terms of land use, financing, and an overall business environment.
Liuzhou Mayor Xiao Wensun encouraged SMEs to focus on innovation and capacity building.
It is the seventh year for Liuzhou to run such a campaign. It has reportedly set a goal to nurture 460 firms, each with annual revenue of at least 100 million yuan, in the year of 2013.
