President Zhang Mengxing introduced the basic situations of MCC, its overseas market layout and exploration situations on two meetings. He summarized the successful experience of MCC and China MCC20 in jointly exploring the market in Sri Lanka for more than 10 years. He emphasized the important position of the Sri Lanka market in MCC, and fully confirmed the achievements and execution of CKE, OCH, CEP and other projects by MCC International and MCC20 project team. He hoped that MCC Sri Lanka Branch and MCC20 project execution team could keep giving play to all aspects of their professional advantages, to further develop and expand the market share in Sri Lanka. President Zhang Mengxing expressed deep concern for the front-line employees who were away from home, stationed overseas and persisted in striving for over ten years. He required that leaders at various levels must undertake responsibilities, and insist on the principle of safety first, to create good working and living environment for all overseas employees. The Project Department should keep practicing social responsibilities locally, deal with the relationship with different parties, try best to give back to local society, provide corresponding help to local residents, and build a good enterprise image of MCC locally. He pointed out that OCH Project and CEP Project had a relatively large influence in local area at present, which were also key overseas projects of MCC. He was very happy that MCC was highly recognized and praised by local government and people.
President Zhang Mengxing made important indications on the meeting: 1. We should conquer all obstacles, and complete our targets quickly in high quality. at present. We are full of confidence in the successful completion of OCH Project at present. However, we couldn’t take it lightly because we were still facing design and relocation problems to be solved as soon as possible. And we should plan in advance before rainy season came. Various work processes should be planned to make full use of resources to realize cost reduction and benefit increasing. As a team with rich experience, OCH must have the ambition to exceed CKE Project, trying to set a new record, so that local government and people would have better impression on MCC. 2. Careful preparations should be made to ensure all-out effort conditions of CEP. Local government paid great attention to the progress of CEP Project, especially financial problem, design approval, land requisition and demolishing, on which local government and related departments paid close attention. Senior manager of the group would provide assistance to solve such problems. Full preparations should be made for the project, so that employees could work energetically as soon as conditions were mature. 3. Explorations and innovations should be realized to make sure project control on a new level. He pointed out that, if secondary subsidiary wanted to become the main platform of project control, project control should be the starting point and foothold of all effective management. All tasks should be developed around project control, and the standard was to provide efficient and high quality service to projects. Enterprises should pay attention to such step in the reform. Project control should keep up with good projects, use experience for reference, realize intelligence, standardization, greenization, informatization and zero release. Overseas projects should learn from high-tech management experience of domestic projects, with high standards and strict requirement, to execute according to the most advanced project management ideas. We should pay attention to mode change during the control process. We should innovate bravely, draw on the wisdom of the masses, and let project managers and the project become community of interests, to maintain the market, and maximize the market through highest level project management. 4. We should strengthen and expand overseas market, enhance our sense of urgency and responsibility. Facing the current fierce competition environment, the group company had insufficient international talents. Advanced talents could not be introduced if the incentive mechanism was not activated, so our ability to meet the needs of international market was insufficient and overseas agencies could not give full play to their functions. Sri Lanka had wide market and rich opportunities. MCC20 Group should cooperate with MCC International to further explore the market in Sri Lanka. We should insist on the core ideas of “high technology, high speed and high quality” of our group, be confident to grow stronger and larger, and give play to our largest potential. 5. Party construction should be strengthened to guarantee organizational discipline and give play to the model role of Party members. The Overseas Project Department should also strengthen basic level Party construction, to make Party members feel organized. Decisions of all actions should be made according to the requirements of Party Committee, which should be down-to-earth rather than formalistic. Employees should be cared in life, so that Chinese and foreign employees have sense of belonging to our company, to improve cohesion and fighting capacity, advocate positive energy, and realize joint improvement.
