Mr. Ma Jie, Chairman of YOFC, was the first person to deliver a speech on the stage, where he expressed his warm welcome and heartfelt gratitude for guests who had busy schedules but still managed to attend the ceremony. During his speech, he looked back upon the development course of YOFC since its establishment, and firmly acknowledged the fruitful results it has achieved over the past three decades.




Chairman Ma Jie expressed that over the past three decades, by focusing on core technology and independent innovation, YOFC has become a pioneer from “a manufacturer dependent on introduced technology”, and has realized an incredible transformation, growing from a “follower” to the “leader”, with its brand’s influence becoming greater and greater in the world, and winning massive attention and acclaim from all sectors of society. None of this could have been gained without the support and assistance from all sectors of society, and more importantly, the dedication and perseverance of generations of YOFC’s staff. In the future, still in an innovation-driven approach, YOFC will push forward its transformation and upgrading, stride towards the goal of becoming the “leader” in the industry, and shape the beautiful, new future together with global partners and all sectors of society.




The Celebration Ceremony of YOFC’s 30th Anniversary attracted the attendance of a lot of old and new friends.

Standing at the new starting point of history, South Africa will continue to provide a favorable business environment for Chinese enterprises represented by YOFC, to strengthen friendly cooperation in multiple sectors between the two countries.




Mr. Masaki Miyajima, Managing Director of Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd., an important partner of YOFC, pointed out during his speech at the ceremony that Shin-Etsu Chemical struck up a good friendship with YOFC soon after its establishment, and that in 2015, the two companies jointly established an enterprise in Qianjiang, dedicated to producing optical preforms, which strengthened their relations that have lasted for nearly 30 years.
