A few days ago, Du Xiaogang, Mayor of Wuxi, met with a group led by Sugawara Masayuki, Chairman of Mizuho Bank (China), Ltd.

Zhou Changqing, Vice Mayor of Wuxi, and Zhang Mingkang, Secretary General of the Wuxi Municipal People’s Government, attended the meeting.
Mr. Du Xiaogang extended a warm welcome to the guests and expressed heartfelt thanks to Mizuho Bank for its strong support for the development of Wuxi. He said that at the critical moment of pandemic prevention and control, Japanese sister cities’ generous assistance in personal protective equipment (PPE) to Wuxi deeply moved us. Currently, Wuxi is unswervingly expanding opening to the outside world in accordance with the country's requirements and making every effort to build the most satisfactory city for foreign investment. Wuxi has kept on good terms with Japan for a long time. Wuxi and Mizuho Bank (China), Ltd. have a deep industrial cooperation foundation and close and frequent non-governmental exchanges. We hoped that Mizuho Bank would regard Wuxi as an important investment platform and test field and continue to promote the cooperation between Wuxi and Japan in fields such as economy, society and culture, so as to promote both sides to cooperate in deeper and wider fields and jointly create a model of mutual benefit and win-win situation in the era.
