On the morning of April 21st, Wang Yuexia, the first commander of the "Pioneer Women's Militia Company" in Dongtou, the former Secretary of the Dongtou County Party Committee, and the Deputy Director of the Wenzhou Municipal People's Congress Standing Committee, brought more than 40 veterans of the "Pioneer Women's Militia Company" in Dongtou and the former "Military Civilian Joint Defense Model Company" (the 2nd Battalion and 6th Battalion of a certain coastal defense regiment of the Dongtou stationed troops) to visit and guide Chengyi Pharmaceutical.
Hero Group - "Military Civilian Joint Defense Model Company"
According to the military history of the Nanjing Military Region, the 2nd Battalion and 6th Company of a certain coastal defense regiment in the former Nanjing Military Region were a heroic company. Established in July 1944 in Juxian, Shandong, it participated in battles such as Jinan, Huaihai, and Crossing the Yangtze River, and is known as the "Tiger Company". After entering Dongtou Island, Zhejiang Province in 1953, we conscientiously implemented Chairman Mao's thought of "people's war" and mobilized the residents to jointly defend and build the island. In September 1965, the Ministry of National Defense awarded the company the honorary title of "Military Civil Joint Defense Model Company". In 1966, the story of carrying out military civilian joint defense based on the company and the resident women's militia company was filmed as the movie "Haixia", which spread throughout the country and became widely known. In February 1981, they were relocated to Dongxilian Island, Lianyungang City, Jiangsu Province.
The Story of Wang Yuexia and Chengyi Pharmaceutical
In October 2016, Wang Yuexia and Yan Yiyi, Chairman of Chengyi Pharmaceutical, attended the 50th anniversary of the establishment of Chengyi Pharmaceutical.
Wang Yuexia, as the Secretary of the Dongtou County Party Committee, is wholeheartedly determined to change the backwardness of Dongtou and actively utilize the advantages of women's related resources to discuss policies and funds in the province and even relevant central ministries and commissions, seeking to accelerate the development of his hometown Dongtou.
During her tenure, she introduced industrial projects for the first time in Dongtou and built a workshop in the back ridge of Dongtou. It was only then that Tongshan Pharmaceutical Factory naturally relocated to the back ridge, obtaining great opportunities for continuous development.
The Chinese pharmaceutical industry has begun an unprecedented large-scale rectification and acceptance in its history. This is a rectification and also a reshuffle. In October of that year, a pharmaceutical factory rectification and acceptance team composed of the Zhejiang Provincial Medical Administration, the Provincial Administration for Industry and Commerce, and the Provincial Department of Health (referred to as the "two bureaus and one department") was about to come to Dongtou, Hainan Island to inspect the Tongshan Pharmaceutical Factory. This is the first time since the establishment of Tongshan Pharmaceutical Factory that it has faced strict government scrutiny.
Out of support for the weak industrial foundation on the island, County Party Secretary Wang Yuexia personally took the initiative to win support for the Tongshan Pharmaceutical Factory located on the island and expressed her position.
October 29, 1981
The acceptance team arrived at Tongshan Pharmaceutical Factory as scheduled. After three consecutive years of losses, employees particularly cherish the hard won good situation. Tongshan Pharmaceutical Factory has reached the best state in daily management, equipment maintenance, and quality pursuit with concerted efforts from all levels.
On the afternoon of October 30, 1981
At the symposium of the acceptance group, Manager Liu Shufang of the Provincial Medical Administration, who led the team, said that Wang Yuexia, Secretary of the Dongtou County Committee, was welcome to visit everyone. After a few polite words, Wang Yuexia said a lot, introducing that Dongtou has been liberated three times before and after. The island's infrastructure is still weak, and industry has just started. Since this is the first nationwide rectification, it is necessary to assist Tongshan Pharmaceutical Factory in running the enterprise well. That night, she also instructed the garrison to play the story film "Haixia" on the playground.
In April 2018, the female militia company's previous commanders and instructors met again.
November 1, 1981
Before the acceptance team left Tongshan Pharmaceutical Factory, it was announced that the score for Tongshan Pharmaceutical Factory was 451.45, which meets the basic conditions and can obtain a drug production license. Manager Liu Shufang and other experts and leaders from the acceptance team came up and shook hands with Yan Yiyi and others to express congratulations.
By the end of 1981, there were 64 Western medicine factories and 18 traditional Chinese medicine factories in Zhejiang Province that had passed the acceptance inspection. During the Cultural Revolution, the chaotic situation of large pharmaceutical factories across the country was first rectified in Zhejiang Province.
Old Soldier in Sincere Pharmaceutical Industry
At 10:20 am on April 21st, Wang Yuexia and her delegation arrived at Chengyi Pharmaceutical. At the welcome symposium, after listening to the introduction of Zhao Chunjian, the deputy general manager of the company, on the development of Chengyi Pharmaceutical, Wang Yuexia said, 'I know how Chengyi Pharmaceutical has started.'. After the army left at that time, someone above wanted to cut off this enterprise. I was the county party secretary at the time, and I must keep it. There is only such an industrial enterprise in Dongtou, how can we do without it? There are still so many people who need employment and food. Later on, the army entrusted Yan Yiyi and his team to take over the enterprise. With no funds, no technology, and no way out, they gradually managed to make the enterprise what it is today, becoming a listed company on the Shanghai Stock Exchange in Wenzhou and the largest taxpayer among local enterprises in Dongtou. It was not easy. I am very happy.
The veteran soldiers of the Sixth Company, who have deep feelings for Dongtou, took a group photo in front of the Chengyi Pharmaceutical office building and finally visited the factory area. It wasn't until 11:30 noon that I reluctantly left.
