At 8 am on July 18th, the blue sky was filled with colorful clouds. Dongtou Yuanjue Pier boasts a gentle breeze and a peaceful atmosphere. The "Cheng Yi and Huazhong Ship Naming and Signing Ceremony and First Voyage Ceremony" was grandly held at Yuanjue Wharf, with over 100 people from relevant departments, cadres and masses led by Lin Xia, Deputy Secretary of the Dongtou District Committee and District Mayor.
At 8:20 am, the ceremony began. Amidst the cheery music, Zhao Chunjian, Vice Chairman and Vice General Manager of Chengyi Pharmaceutical, signed an "Exclusive Naming Agreement" with Lin Shengbao, a representative of the preparatory group of Jielu Shipping Co., Ltd. in Dongtou District, Wenzhou City and Deputy Director of Dongtou District Transportation Bureau. After the signing of the "Huazhong" project, Lin Shengbao made a statement. Lin Shengbao said that the establishment of Jielu Shipping Company, a state-owned enterprise in Dongtou District, and the opening of the "Cheng Yi" and "Huazhong" ships are major measures taken by the district committee and government to build maritime public transportation, develop comprehensive tourism in Dongtou, and accelerate the economic and social development of outlying towns.
Ye Haifeng, member of the Standing Committee of the Dongtou District Committee and Executive Deputy District Mayor, delivered a speech on behalf of the district committee and government. Ye Haifeng said that today we gather here to witness the inaugural voyage of Jielu's "Cheng Yi" and "Huazhong" ships. In recent years, significant progress has been made in the construction of transportation facilities in Dongtou. However, due to the large historical debts of the island, there are shortcomings in the transportation industry, especially the difficulty of meeting the convenient and comfortable travel needs of the people on the island, which falls short of the goal of high-level construction of the "Sea Garden". The new party committee and government have made up their minds to overcome difficulties and, in accordance with the requirements of equalization of public transportation, established Jielu State owned Company. They have invested 15 million yuan to build two high-level passenger ships, striving to provide more convenient, comfortable, and safe tourism, leisure, and transportation services for island residents and foreign tourists. Today, the inaugural flights of the "Cheng Yi" and "Huazhong" ships have laid a new milestone for the development of maritime public transportation in Donghai, and also opened a new chapter in the integrated reform of land and maritime public transportation in our region.
At 8:30 pm, District Mayor Lin Xia issued the inaugural order; Now I declare that the Cheng Yi and Huazhong passenger ships have officially set sail
Amidst warm blessings and full expectations, the "Cheng Yi" cruise ship slowly sailed out of Dongtou Yuanjue Pier, heading towards the other shore of success and happiness.
