Discussion related to EHang before the visit
On the night before the touring, in the conference room of the Guangzhou Office of Sichuan Provincial Government, a discussion about the upcoming visit to key enterprises was going on.
Zhou Wenli, deputy director of the Economic Cooperation Division of the Guangzhou Office of Sichuan Provincial Government: EHang plans to build a southwest headquarters in Sichuan, and its focus is to open up the market in Sichuan.
Yu Xiaoyan, investment promotion officer of the Economic Cooperation Division of the Guangzhou Office of Sichuan Provincial Government: Their production capacity in Guangdong is not yet at full capacity. If the government wants to give it market application scenarios, I think there will be a big concern.
Mao Jie, Director of the Secretariat of the Guangzhou Office of Sichuan Provincial Government: Can we consider planning something that can fit together and cooperate with each other? If we can exchange for cooperation, it may be easier to promote and facilitate this project.
Onsite visit to EHang
With the planning in advance, Lin Pengcheng led the team to meet the person in charge of the company.
Xue Peng, Vice President of EHang: After the epidemic was lifted, you were the first team from a local government to come to EHang to attract investment.
After a simple greeting, Lin Pengcheng’s team and the person in charge of the company started a consultation on cooperation with the government.
Zhou Wenli: I would like to ask, for example, in your new scenario, if your current (annual) production capacity reaches full production, what is the production capacity?
Xue Peng, vice president of EHang.: 600 units.
Zhou Wenli: That means that as your market opens up, you will definitely need to set up factories in another (place).
Xue Peng, Vice President of EHang: After that, there may be secondary development, as well as new modules and new plates.
During the negotiation process, the actual needs of the enterprise became clearer, firmly grasped the demands of the enterprise, and provided corresponding solutions, which also tested the flexibility of the business recruiter.
Lin Pengcheng, deputy director of the Guangzhou Office of the Sichuan Provincial Government: In this way, we contact the government to see if they can open up some of their resources to your company. You take out some of your high-quality resources, integrate them, and go to the middle together. Let’s see if this is possible.
Xue Peng, Vice President of EHang: I think we can conduct a discussion within the company.
During the one-and-a-half-hour meeting, although no satisfactory answer was obtained immediately, Lin Pengcheng told the TV reporter that it has made great progress compared to before, and the the team’s spirit of perseverance also impressed the person in charge of the company deeply.
Xue Peng, Vice President of EHang: Every time you come, you can bring many new solutions to the company. From these solutions, we can also feel that Sichuan Office has done a lot of hard work behind the scenes.
