FUZHOU, China, Nov. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Pingtan Marine Enterprise Ltd. (NASDAQ: PME) ("Pingtan" or the "Company"), today announced that on November 17, 2020, Pingtan's CEO led a team for a study visit to Zhanjiang Guolian Aquatic Products Co., Ltd. ("Guolian") that is headquartered in the Zhanjiang Economic and Technological Development Zone of Guangdong Province in China.
Guolian is an aquatic food company listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange that focuses on the whole-industry-chain development of the aquatic industry and places aquatic food R&D as its leading priority. Its key products are prawn and tilapia, which are safe, healthy, and cost-effective aquatic products. Guolian has now developed into a multi-national group company covering a variety of whole industry chains, including hatchery, factory farming, feed manufacturing and selling, fisheries research, marine food processing and trade.
During the visit, Pingtan's Chairman and CEO, Mr. Xinrong Zhuo, led the team in a study of Guolian's intelligent processing technology and whole-industry-chain operation model. Mr. Zhuo and Guolian's Chairman, Mr. Zhong Li, had in-depth discussions and exchanged views on a variety of topics, including aquatic food processing, food R&D and global sales networking, and agreed that there are opportunities for the companies to work together for development in a whole-industry-chain approach, which would benefit both companies and make respective advantages complementary to each other.
Mr. Zhuo commented: "Guolian is one of the largest aquatic food companies in China. We are honored to have an opportunity to visit its headquarters. The visit was very successful. In the future, we look forward to finding ways to cooperate with Guolian in the area of intensive processing of marine catches, such as squid and tuna products and especially series of intensively processed squid products. We believe the discussed potential cooperation would not only possibly expand our product mix but also have a positive impact on Pingtan's value-added product processing."
