On December 12, Li Xiaomin, Executive Deputy Director of the Standing Committee of the Jiangsu Provincial People's Congress and Deputy Secretary of the Leading Party Members Group of the Standing Committee of the Jiangsu Provincial People’s Congress, inspected the IC industry chain in Wuxi. Mr. Li Xiaomin said that Wuxi should thoroughly study and implement the keynote of General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important speech on the inspection in Jiangsu Province and the keynote of the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee and further promote the development of the IC industry, so as to build a world-class IC industry chain as soon as possible and boost the IC industry in Jiangsu Province to develop in the forefront in China. Leading officials of Wuxi such as Mr. Huang Qin, Mr. Xu Yiping, Mr. Xu Jie, Mr. Zhu Aixun, Mr. Lu Zhijian, Ms. Gao Yaguang and Ms. Jiang Min attended the inspection.
The system of designating specific government leaders to take charge of advantageous industrial chains is an important measure taken by the CPC Jiangsu Provincial Committee and the Jiangsu Provincial People’s Government to implement the requirements of stabilizing the six fronts (employment, finance, foreign trade, inbound investment, domestic investment and market expectations) and guaranteeing the six priorities (jobs, daily living needs, food and energy, industrial and supply chains, the interests of market players, and the smooth functioning of primary level government), build a modern industrial system and promote high-quality development of economy, especially the manufacturing industry. Mr. Li Xiaomin attached great importance to and cared very much about the development of Wuxi's IC industry and regarded Wuxi as a contact site. On the morning of December 12, Mr. Li Xiaomin visited SK Hynix Semiconductor (China) Ltd., AMTE (Advanced Materials Technology & Engineering, Inc.), Trensor and other enterprises to learn the development of the IC industry in Wuxi on the spot. SK Hynix Semiconductor (China) Ltd. is a joint venture established by SK Hynix Systemic and Wuxi Industry Development Group Co., Ltd., which mainly produces 8-inch silicon wafers. It took only 18 months from the start of construction to the official production. The M8 Project is a major foreign-funded IC industry project personally planned, decided, attended and promoted by Mr. Li Xiaomin during his work in Wuxi. After wearing garments for clean room and protective masks, the group led by Mr. Li Xiaomin went to the production lines and R&D center of the enterprise to learn relevant situations. He praised the first-rate technologies of the project and its high monthly capacity over the average level in the industry, and encouraged the enterprise to seize market opportunities and further improve the technologies, so as to build a most competitive in the IC industry. On the same day, the M8 Project was completed. Mr. Li Xiaomin and Mr. Huang Qin launched the completion ceremony together with Oh Hanju, an senior executive in charge of the operation of SK Hynix Systemic.
According to Mr. Li Xiaomin, currently, the IC industry chain and supply chain in the world are being restructured. As a result, the development of the IC industry chain is facing significant benefits with a number of opportunities. On the foundation of early starting, good basis and large scale, everyone in the IC industry in Wuxi should give play to the advantages, seize opportunities, focus on expanding, strengthen and building the industry chain, arrange an innovation chain around the industrial chain, improve the ecological chain and increase the effort in promoting the development of the IC industry, so as to accelerate improving the advanced level of the IC industry and the level of modernization of the industrial chain. We must strive to build Wuxi into a cluster of the IC industry in China and a highland of the IC industry in the world with complete elements, core technologies, scale effect and competitive edge and make greater contributions to helping the development of the IC industry in Jiangsu Province and China.
