  Ningbo entrepreneurs present the unique advantage, the valuable wealth as well as the backbone of the social and economic development in Ningbo. Over the years, generations of Ningbo entrepreneurs pioneer in business and commercial industries. On top of that, a host of business magnates and celebrities emerge and are widely known both home and broad. In August 1984, Deng Xiaoping, China’s prime minister at that time, called on Ningbo entrepreneurs around the globe to work together to develop Ningbo and then notably inspired Ningbo entrepreneurs to love their country and city more and contribute more to the future generations. Over the past 30 years, on the one hand, Ningbo entrepreneurs all over the world pioneered in the new business circles and started up their own businesses innovatively and enabled the Ningbo merchants to be the noted business groups around the world; on the other hand, they provided funding, exerted their efforts, and contributed their ideas to vigorously construct and prosper their hometown in various channels and means. They have become an important workforce in advancing the economic and social development in Ningbo.

  The most fundamental reason why Ningbo business group can survive and its spirit can be immortal is that most Ningbo entrepreneurs abroad have affection for their hometown. The spirit of Ningbo business group formed in the process of tough starting-up, especially the spirit of pioneering, sincerity, patriotism, starting-up and innovation, are honored and respected by the people. The convention of the first conference of World Ningbo Business Group represents three core points as follows: first,

1. Carry forward the spirit, which is to further promote long-standing spirit of "Ningbo-Bang"; 2. Gathering strength. That is to gather up the enormous power of the patriotic "Ningbo-Bang" at home and abroad; 3. Building the hometown. That is to build up a better future for Ningbo by focusing on the ambitious goals put forward at the 12th Congress of Ningbo City.

  The current and coming period is of great significance to the development of Ningbo. It is also an important stage for Ningbo to basically realize modernization from a moderately-prosperous society in all respects. Standing on the threshold of a new development, we will make full use of the advantages of “Ningbo-Bang”, vigorously carry forward the spirit of “Ningbo-Bang”, unite all aspects of strength, wisdom, and stimulate enthusiasm, thus laying the solid base for the sustaining development of Ningbo, opening the source for the economic restructuring and development, finally achieving a new leap of Ningbo's modernization.
