Chapter 1355: Shocked Everyone
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Alright, now that everyone is here, let’s continue the meeting.”
The person who spoke was the second-in-command of Dongsan County, Yu Chaoxi. He was the one who presided over all the work in the county.
He was also running the meeting.
Apart from that, the head, Wang Yunjiang, sat at the main seat beside him and listened to the meeting.
“Director Geng, according to what we discussed just now, we can give you a price of 500,000 yuan per mu. This is the lowest price we can offer,” Yu Chaoxi said.
“Apart from that, we will also give you as much green light as possible in other places. We will cooperate with you to complete this project.”
With that, Yu Zhaoxi called Zhou Feng over.
“Director Geng, this is the director of our county’s development office. He will be in charge of the follow-up process with you.”
No one in the meeting room said anything. They all knew Yu Zhaoxi’s intentions.
Zhou Feng was his nephew. Thus, he was paving the way for him.
Zhou Feng stood up politely. “Director Geng, when the project is completed, I’ll think of a way to get more beneficial policies for you. You can’t go wrong investing in Dongsan County.”
“But with the situation in Dongsan County, 500,000 yuan a mu is not considered low. We can’t accept this price,” Geng Junhui said.
If Lin Yi hadn’t spoken, Chaoyang Group wouldn’t have ever even considered investing in this place.
Therefore, he hoped that the price for the land would be as low as possible.
The people in the conference room were in a difficult position. They looked at each other and discussed the solution in low voices.
This was already the lowest price they could offer in their county. It couldn’t go any lower.
“Director Geng, based on the current situation, that’s the lowest we can offer.” Zhou Feng said.
“But don’t worry, we’re actively seeking out investors. The situation will only get better in the future. You won’t lose out investing here!”
“So now, is there any progress on the county’s investment promotion?” Geng Junhui asked.
Zhou Feng paused for a moment. “We’ve already put this matter on the agenda. Moreover, we’ve done a lot of work in terms of policy support. I believe we’ll receive good feedback from the investors this time.”
There was still no expression on Geng Junjie’s face as he calmly said,
“In other words, the actual investment collection work hasn’t started yet. Our investment this time can be considered a gamble, right?”
Geng Junhui’s words made everyone uncomfortable.
He was dissatisfied with the conditions offered by the county!
Yu Zhaoxi and Zhou Feng looked at each other, their eyes filled with anxiety and helplessness.
This was the best price they could give.
The county had waited for a decent investment for so many years. It would be a pity to miss it like this.
Subconsciously, Zhou Feng glanced at Wang Yunjiang and realized that his expression was not very good.
Clearly, he was dissatisfied with his performance.
The second round of assistance from Lingyun Group made the boss reassess his position.
If he messed up again, his future career might be in danger.
Geng Junhui didn’t want to be so aggressive, but because of Zhou Feng’s attitude towards Lin Yi just now, he was quite unhappy and wanted to put some pressure on the people before him.
However, at this moment, Yu Chaoxi suddenly thought of something and glanced at Lin Yi from the corner of his eye. Zhou Feng reacted extremely quickly and instantly understood what he meant. He slammed the table and said,
“Lin Yi, what’s with your work?!”
This scene stunned the others.
What did this have to do with Lin Yi?
Why were they pointing fingers at him?
“If you have something to say, just say it. There’s no need to beat around the bush,” Lin Yi said in a low voice.
Zhou Feng didn’t stand on ceremony and criticized,
“Recently, you’ve been in charge of the county’s investment recruitment. How long has it been, yet there’s still no movement? Tell me, is it due to your negligence?!”
Li Qingkai frowned, feeling that Zhou Feng had gone overboard.
Although Lin Yi had been charged with looking for investments, it had only been less than a week.
Moreover, everyone knew the situation in Dongsan County. How could he show results so quickly?
However, at this moment, he could not say anything.
If there was a problem, he had to find someone to take the blame. Lin Yi was the first to bear the brunt!
Otherwise, if the higher-ups blamed him, it would affect his career as well.
Zhou Feng’s expression was cold, as if he wanted to punish Lin Yi.
He wanted to push all the responsibility onto Lin Yi so that the failure would have nothing to do with him.
“Who said I didn’t do anything? If you don’t know, don’t talk nonsense, okay? There are outsiders here. Don’t you feel embarrassed?”
As soon as these words were spoken, everyone in the meeting room looked at Lin Yi. They didn’t expect him to challenge Zhou Feng head-on.
Wang Yunjiang looked at Lin Yi, his eyes filled with anticipation.
Zhou Feng’s expression was a little awkward. “What have you done? Report your results to Director Geng.”
“Lingyun Group in Zhonghai is planning to build a chip industry center here at the intersection of the three cities to support their latest chip project. The initial plan is to invest 20 billion. Is this project enough?”
Hearing this number, the meeting room fell silent. It felt like a fantasy.
“What did you say? You pulled in a twenty-billion-dollar investment?”
“The first investment is 20 billion, and there will also be later investments. The total value should exceed 50 billion.” Lin Yi said.
“Other than that, other companies will also follow by investing in their own factories. The estimated total value will exceed 100 billion. My conservative estimate is that this can employ 30 to 50 thousand people. Is Director Zhou satisfied with this?”
Everyone was stunned and felt their heads buzzing.
That was an investment of a total of 100 billion yuan. They had never dreamed that such a beautiful thing would befall Dongsan County.
“Yes, it’s indeed not bad.”
Lin Yi ignored Zhou Feng and looked at Geng Junjie and the others.
“I also obtained some benefits for you. We can sell you the county’s commercial land at 290,000 yuan a mu. We will also offer you policy protection and not let other real estate companies enter the market. What do you think?”
“290,000 yuan per mu!”
Explosive news came one after another. The people in the conference room were shocked again. Even Yu Zhaoxi could not remain calm.
As the second-in-command, he could only give a rate of 500,000 yuan a mu, but this guy could actually offer 290,000 yuan a mu!
Not to mention the protective policies!
Where did he come from?!
Wang Yunjiang was no different. Even he did not even have the ability to do this, so how could Lin Yi do this?
“Director Lin’s terms are much better than yours.” Geng Junjie looked at Yu Zhaoxi and Zhou Feng. The meaning of his words was crystal clear.
The two of them sat awkwardly in their chairs. They were so nervous that it was as if nails had grown under their butts.
There was a difference of 210,000 yuan between their offers. Wouldn’t the directors naturally suspect that they were planning to pocket the difference?
This damned guy!
