Tao Yishan, chairman of the board of directors of the group, shook hands again with mcchrymon, chairman of the Walt hill group, to jointly usher in a new era of cooperation and development between the two sides.
The United States has paid high attention to this cooperation. The Sun News reported on June 8 and June 10 in a row with front page headlines, praising this as the first world-class breeding company cooperated with China. China's population is five times that of the United States, and it is also the world's largest pork market. The cooperation between the two sides will promote the formation of the world's largest breeding company. Indiana also makes an exception to allow Tang Renshen group to invest in the United States to set up original pig farms. The establishment of the new company will bring 125 new jobs to the US side, which is regarded as an important investment attraction project locally. American officials and media hold a positive attitude towards it. The sun news gives a detailed introduction to the course of cooperation between the two sides and the development of the Tang Renshen group. In an interview with the sun news, Mr. Tao vividly introduced that after four years of "marriage" between Tang Renshen and Walt hill company, they finally had a new "baby". The new company will be committed to genetic improvement and provide better original pigs for China's breeding pig market according to the demand of pork quality and growth environment.
As for the significance of the project, the Sun News quoted Michael clement, chairman of the Walt hill group, as saying that it aims to create a successful example of in-depth cooperation between China and the United States in the field of animal husbandry, so as to make Indiana an important professional base for cooperation, research and production of Chinese breeding enterprises.
