Sinobioway Group Chairman: Dr. Pan Aihua
Peking University, which has gone through a century of ups and downs, remains ahead of its time. Caring for the fate of the nation and bearing the mission of serving the country with innovation and reform, it has formed the inspiring tradition of patriotism, progressiveness, democracy and science. As the renowned Mr. Lu Xun said, “Peking University is always innovative and is the leading force in any reformist movement. It tends to give correct guidance to China for the right and ascending path.” During my study and work in the university, I found myself constantly pondering beside the Boya Pogoda, by the Unnamed Lake. Like life-giving spring breeze and rain, the all-inclusive, open-minded, innovative and pioneering spirit of the university has strengthened my faith to work hard and achieve success.
1992 marked a turning point in the history of China. Following Deng Xiaoping’s southern tour, the movement of emancipation of the mind transformed China and a new wave of opening up and reform was gaining momentum. It was in the breeze of reform that Sinobioway was born and in the sunshine of opening-up, that it was nurtured. In the same year, by the Unnamed Lake that has unceasingly fostered innovation, we established Sinobioway Bioengineering Company with a loan of over 400,000 Yuan from the University and a garage-sized office, which was under the direction of Mr. Ren Yanshen and Dr. Chen Zhangliang.
With the support from generations of Peking University leaders, teachers, students and all sectors of society, Sinobioway Group has become a flagship enterprise of the bioindustry in China and the world’s origin of bioeconomy after two decades of development. Its development process can be compared to the growth of plants. During the first decade, a seed full of hope broke through the sand and grew into a young sprout in the desert with what seemed like God's help; in the second decade, it thrived amid numerous hardships but under meticulous care to become an apple tree with exuberant foliage. I hope that in the following decade, this tree can bear red apples, the third of its kind, following Newton and Jobs’ epoch-making apples but this time they have been fostered by oriental China.
I made three predictions as early as 1998: If the 2008 Olympics is held in China, China would surpass the US in gold medal standings; in 2020, China will overtake the US to become the world’s largest economy in terms of GDP; The human being will enter into an era of bioeconomy in 2020. So far, the first prediction has already been confirmed; the second has been preliminarily realized. Currently, as the wave of bioeconomy is sweeping the globe, the era of bioeconomy beginning to take shape, we have good reasons to believe that the third shall eventually become a reality. Bioeconomy will serve as a powerful guarantee for tackling major issues concerning the subsistence and development of the human being, such as population, health, food, environment, energy, marine and biosecurity.
Sinobioway Group is determined to start a new industrial revolution while shouldering the mission of “developing bioeconomy and contributing to the fulfillment of the China Dream”. I created the New Capital theory with the core concept of “Capital Controls the World; Life Determines Capital; Genes Dictate Life”. In the new stage of development, Sinobioway, holding “Life determines capital” as the marketing motto, is leading people to return to nature, to the people-oriented mentality and to the essence of life, in their pursuit of economic development.
In the future, we will seek reciprocal and win-win cooperation with people from all walks of life, so as to seize development opportunities and courageously shoulder the responsibilities of our time. We will collaborate to create a better future and contribute to the exploration of a way that leads to a way of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, world economic development and innovation, and a way toward the peaceful and sustainable development of humanity! This is Sinobioway!
