Alumnus Lin Shanping then gave a keynote speech themed "A wonderful life on the road of Hongrun" with introducing his own experience. Resolved to succeed, Mr. Lin Shanping has been supporting himself since childhood. In the 1990s when he started his own business, he had only less than 2,000 Yuan for living and conducted products development and improvement in the rented office with an area of only 15 m2. He has met with many problems and difficulties such as shortage of funds and faultiness of products. But finally he successfully developed the products with good customer response and increasing sales. In 1995, Lin Shanping established Hongda Automatic Meter Factory, which was renamed Hongrun Precision Instruments Co., Ltd. later. By strictly controlling products quality, emphasizing customer satisfaction and sticking to the enterprise spirit of "Never be afraid of long and hard march", Hongrun has firmly led China’s instrument and meter industry. In the end of his speech, Lin Shanping hoped the students would become independent and strong and contribute to the university with outstanding performance.
