亲爱的 Walsh 市长，邢参赞，徐主任，各位嘉宾，女士位，先生们：
Dear Mayor Walsh, Consoler Xing, Director Xu, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,
Welcome to the opening ceremony of Qilu Boston Innovation Center and QLB Biotherapeutics. On behalf of Qilu Pharmaceutical Group, I would like to express my sincerest thanks to government leaders of City of Boston, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and City of Jinan, as well as professors, experts and partners, who have always been supportive and helpful to Qilu Pharmaceutical.
Boston is not only a city rich and profound in historical and cultural foundation, but also a city full of creativity, inspiration and energy. We’ve come to Boston to be part of this world renowned life science innovation hub, where we seek to generate smart ideas through collaborations with great minds, exploring unknown fields, and most importantly, deliver innovative medicines to address unmet medical needs.
It should be a right, not a privilege, to have access to affordable and innovative medicines. Everyone strives for living healthy, while in reality, various diseases disrupts daily life and makes patients and their families suffer. The staff at Qilu Pharmaceutical deeply sympathize and understand their pain. To ensure healthier and better life for the public, during the past 30 years, Qilu Pharmaceutical has been sticking to the vision of “caring through science and technology”, we work hard and diligently to ensure only the highest quality medicines for clinical use. Every year, over 100 million people are treated by Qilu products.
And love has no boundaries, with a rich product pipeline, Qilu is ready to provide solutions for human health. Every year, Qilu products help billions of people in over 70 countries, where the name Qilu is synonymous with caring and love. Qilu has also been exploring new models for international R&D collaboration, to deliver more and better medicines to meet patients’ needs. Today, the opening of Qilu Boston Innovation Center and QLB Biotherapeutics witnesses not only one of the most significant milestones, but also, a fresh new start for Qilu.
Meanwhile, Qilu will be more than happy to be a window and link for Sino-US collaboration and communication. We can help to build bridges between US and Chinese enterprises, as well as between the City of Boston and China.
As the Chinese philosopher, Xunzi, once said: “What I hear, I forget. What I see, I remember. What I do, I understand.” Let's do it together. We've heard what we have to do. We've seen what we need to do. Now is the time to do it and, TOGETHER, WE CAN DO IT!
