On August 16th, Deputy Secretary Wang Fangtai and his delegation from the Gansu Provincial Jingchang Municipal Party Committee and Mayor's office visited Tianqi Lithium Corporation. The visit was warmly received by Ms. Jiang Anqi, Vice Chairman of Tianqi Lithium Corporation.
During the meeting, Mayor Wang acquainted Vice Chairman Jiang with the remarkable progress of Jingchang City, acclaimed as the China's 'Nickel Capital’. The city's narrative revolves around cultivating enterprises from resource-rich mines and charting a path to urbanization through successful ventures. He particularly highlighted the '2+4' industrial chain development blueprint of Jingchang City. That is the city's commitment to nurturing 2 'billion-billion industrial clusters' - new non-ferrous metal materials, new energy and new energy batteries; and 4 'hundred-billion industrial clusters’ - digital economy, chemical recycling, resource utilization, and high-quality agriculture. These endeavors underscore Jingchang's drive towards industry-wide green transformation. Furthermore, Mayor Wang extended an invitation to Tianqi Lithium Corporation for an on-site visit to Jingchang City to explore the city's mature industrial clusters, comprehensive supporting facilities, and abundant resource guarantees.
