Di­rec­tor of the HZMB Au­thor­ity Joined the project in 2004

For­mer chair­man of Guang­dong Provin­cial Ex­press­way Devel­op­ment Co., Ltd., Zhu Yongling joined the HZMB project as di­rec­tor of the prepara­tory of­fice be­fore be­com­ing di­rec­tor of the HZMB Au­thor­ity. Zhu con­trib­uted 14 years to the project, de­vot­ing a large chunk of his adult life to the bridge.

He con­sid­ers the bridge a pi­lot field at the in­ter­sec­tion of “One Coun­try, Two Sys­tems” that taps into the ad­van­tages of the three re­gions. And the project em­bod­ied the par­tic­i­pants’ ini­tia­tive and con­sol­i­dated strength from all walks of life.

Zhu fa­cil­i­tated sound co­or­di­na­tion be­tween gov­ern­ments of the three re­gions, us­ing both rea­son and af­fec­tion. He be­lieves peo­ple’s hearts are con­nected. He is adept at dis­cov­er­ing able peo­ple and plac­ing them in suit­able posts and en­cour­ag­ing con­trac­tors and em­ploy­ees to in­no­vate. He thinks that his job is to mo­ti­vate rather than man­age per­son­nel. The bridge has now been com­pleted. He gave the credit and honor to his col­leagues. “If peo­ple still re­mem­ber that I was the first di­rec­tor of the HZMB Au­thor­ity a cen­tury from now, that would be enough.”
