Jiangyin is the model for the local economic development in China, which produced one percent of China's listed companies with only one ten-thousandth of the land and one thousandth of the population. Jiangyin has ranked No.1 of the 100 communities (cities) of China in comprehensive economic strength for 8 years in a row, creating the world-famous "Mode of Jiangyin". Now Jiangyin has 28 listed companies including China Fiberglass, Changjiang Electronics Technology, Jiangsu Sunshine, Fasten and Huaxi Village and 29 stocks which have raised capitals of more than ¥21 billion in total. The number of listed companies and the amount of raised funds make Jiangyin unparalleled among all the counties in China and brought about the unique "Jiangyin Plate".

After years of development, a great number of large scale enterprises have come into being and the market share of more than 20 products tops the trade in China. Supported by large scale enterprises and quality, brand-name products, the five pillar industries of metallurgy, high-end textile, precision machinery, papermaking, printing & packaging, and fine chemicals are scaling up. The emerging industries such as electronic information, optic-mechanical integration and new materials are thriving.

As the economy develops, Jiangyin adheres to exploring and practising the construction of "Happy Jiangyin" with the principle of "evaluating the development with the happiness of the people". In 2008, Jiangyin was identified as one of the 18 typical areas during the 30 years of the reform and opening up by the Party Central Committee and was credited as "the forerunner of the scientific development".

At the forum, two speeches will be delivered, namely "Opportunities for SJTU Students to Start a Business with the Development of Jiangyin, Jiangsu-No.1 of Top 100 Counties (cities) of China in Comprehensive Economic Strength" by Zhu Minyang, and  "To Build Smart Chinese Enterprises with Top Talents in the Background of Globalization" by Zhang Lei.
