The annual Chinese economic newsmakers were announced at the 2020 China Economic Media Conference, held in Shaoxing in East China's Zhejiang province on Nov 28.
Ten scientists and entrepreneurs who have had great influence on and made contributions to China's scientific and technological innovation, economic construction and social development were chosen, as exemplified by Yuan Longping, dubbed the "father of hybrid rice".
Yan Shengjun, president of China Tianying Inc. (CNTY), was honored as an economic newsmaker of China in 2020.
CNTY is an international environmental management corporation based in Hai'an, a county-level city administered by Nantong. In response to the Belt and Road Initiative, CNTY has accelerated output of technologies and equipment and striven to become a world-class comprehensive platform for solid waste treatment.
Amid the COVID-19 epidemic, in addition to making donations to fight against the epidemic, Yan also maintained the production and operation of the company in full swing.
Though affected by the outbreak, CNTY has had a growth of more than 30 percent in terms of operation revenue over the previous year, and played an important role in the rapid recovery and steady development of China's economy.
