Cap­i­tal com­mem­o­rates ma­jor vic­tory seven decades af­ter Liaoshen Cam­paign

China Daily European Weekly - - Advertorial - By HAO NAN

The gov­ern­ment of Shenyang, cap­i­tal of north­east­ern China’s Liaon­ing prov­ince, hosted a sym­po­sium on Nov 2 to com­mem­o­rate the 70th an­niver­sary of the vic­tory in the Liaoshen Cam­paign.

The sym­po­sium also hon­ored war vet­er­ans who fought daunt­lessly for the lib­er­a­tion of the city and the older gen­er­a­tions of en­trepreneurs who made sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to its ur­ban con­struc­tion.

The Liaoshen Cam­paign, the ab­bre­vi­a­tion of the Liaon­ing – Shenyang Cam­paign, was the first of the three ma­jor cam­paigns, along with the Huai­hai and Pingjin cam­paigns, launched by the Peo­ple’s Lib­er­a­tion Army against the Kuom­intang gov­ern­ment dur­ing the late stage of the Chi­nese Civil War (1945-49). It took place from Septem­ber to Novem­ber 1948 and lasted a to­tal of 52 days.

Af­ter 70 years of the city gov­ern­ment’s hard work and striv­ing, its years-long en­deav­ors have paid off.

Shenyang now en­joys fruit­ful eco­nomic growth, po­lit­i­cal sta­bil­ity, cul­tural pros­per­ity, so­cial co­he­sion and eco­log­i­cal sound­ness. It also boasts many Chi­nese “firsts”, in­clud­ing the first fighter plane, the first trans­former and the first ro­bot for in­dus­trial use.

The city has strongly sup­ported the na­tion’s eco­nomic con­struc­tion since the found­ing of the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of China in 1949, with a stream of in­dus­trial equip­ment and prod­ucts be­ing used all over the coun­try, as well as a large group of skilled work­ers, tech­ni­cians and sci­en­tists work­ing in all parts of China, lo­cal of­fi­cial said.
