Chapter 310 Jiangnan Chamber of Commerce
Later, everyone presented showed infinite respect for Qin Haodong. Previously, they had respected Qin Haodong’s medical skills. Now, they respected his medical skills, his ability to handle affairs, and his love for the cause of traditional Chinese medicine.
Someone took the initiative to applaud. Then, more and more people applauded, until the applause got louder and louder in the meeting hall and lasted a long time.
Qin Haodong waved his hand and everyone immediately calmed down. Then, he said, “Now that the money problem has been solved, the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association has a lot of things to do. I can’t do them alone. I suggest that we let Mr. Gao, Mr. Zhong, and Mr. Shen be the vice-presidents of the association so that they can deal with daily affairs.”
There was no objection to this proposal, so it was adopted unanimously.
Then, he added, “In the short term, the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association should do three things. First, we should immediately prepare for the establishment of a school of traditional Chinese medicine, recruit students, and cultivate reserve forces for the development of traditional Chinese medicine.”
Upon speaking of this, he turned to Gao Fengwen and said, “Mr. Gao, please contact the primary school that was on sale. We’d better buy it. It’s a good place. Let’s turn over the school building and directly set up a school of traditional Chinese medicine there along with the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association.”
Gao Fengwen nodded and said, “Your proposal is good. I’ll make preparations right away.”
Qin Haodong turned around and said, “The second thing we should do is hold an internal exchange meeting within the association soon. I hope that you will not hide your own skills. Let’s improve each other’s medical skills together.”
“Don’t worry, Mr. President. We won’t hide. We promise to share all our unique skills…”
“Yes, Mr. President. You even shared the Yin-Yang Acupuncture. We will share our skills too…”
“Yes, Mr. President. There is only one girl in my family. If I don’t share this, it won’t be passed down…”
Everyone answered Qin Haodong’s call because of his charm and said that they would share their own unique skills.
“On behalf of traditional Chinese medicine, I want to thank you all.” Qin Haodong stood up, bowed before everyone, and then said, “The third thing we need is something we are going to do right away. Tomorrow, we will prepare for it. The day after tomorrow, the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association will hold a large-scale free clinic to improve the reputation of our association.”
Originally, Gao Fengwen had invited Qin Haodong to take over as president of the association. He had not expected that he would vigorously organize all short-term goals.
After the meeting, he took Qin Haodong’s hand and said sincerely, “President Qin, you are really young and promising. In the future, the rise of traditional Chinese medicine will depend on you!”
Qin Haodong said, “Mr. Gao, you are welcome. If we want to do a better job at traditional Chinese medicine, we need elders like you. In the future, a lot of affairs of the association will trouble you three…”
Gao Fengwen said, “President, you’ve done your job. The old men will do the rest.”
After talking about the developmental direction of the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association, Qin Haodong returned to Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company. He opened the door to the president’s office and found Lin Momo playing with a big red invitation card.
Qin Haodong asked, “What is this? Is someone going to get married?”
Lin Momo said, “No, it’s an invitation from the Jiangnan Chamber of Commerce. I’m invited to a banquet at the Jiangnan Chamber of Commerce this evening.”
“Jiangnan Chamber of Commerce? I haven’t heard of it before.”
“You’re not a part of this circle, that’s why you don’t know,” Lin Momo said, “This is a business circle set up by the upper class of Jiangnan City. If you want to become a member of the Chamber of Commerce, your assets need to be worth at least one billion yuan, and this is only one of the conditions. One also needs more than two members’ joint recommendations and more than half of the members’ agreement to join the chamber.”
Qin Haodong, who didn’t care, said, “Is it necessary to be so strict? It is too much trouble!”
“Of course,” Lin Momo said, “The Jiangnan Chamber of Commerce is the largest business circle in Jiangnan City. Once you join it, you will basically have the commercial resources of the whole upper class of Jiangnan City. You will be able to directly talk with the financial tycoons standing at the top of the pyramid. Everyone can exchange things. For a businessman, this is definitely a rare resource.”
“Are you a member of the Chamber of Commerce?” Qin Haodong asked.
“Of course I am, or I wouldn’t have gotten an invitation.”
Qin Haodong said with a smile, “Well, I wanted to go eat and drink with you in the evening, but now I can’t do it.”
“You can come with me. According to the regulations, each member can bring a companion,” Lin Momo said, “Besides, I can recommend that you join the Chamber of Commerce. You have more than one billion yuan worth of assets now.”
“Forget about it. I’m just a little doctor. I’m not interested in a Chamber of Commerce.” Qin Haodong reached out and took Lin Momo in his arms as he said, “It’s okay that my wife is a member. There’s no need for both of us to join.”
Lin Momo looked at him charmingly and said, “Did I promise to be your wife?”
“Well, not my wife. You are my child’s mother!”
After saying that, Qin Haodong got ready to kiss Lin Momo’s charming red lips. However, the cell phone in his pocket suddenly rang. He wanted to ignore it, but Lin Momo pushed him away. “You’d better answer the phone first. Don’t delay business.”
“Who dares to disturb me?” Qin Haodong said discontentedly while taking out his cell phone. It was Gao Fengwen.
“Why would this old man call me when we just said goodbye a while ago?”
Qin Haodong pressed the answer key. Over the phone, Gao Fengwen said, “President, I just contacted the school. This school costs 50 million yuan. I consulted some real estate friends, and they said that the price is quite reasonable. Shall we buy this school?”
“50 million is acceptable. Buy it!”
“Well, I’ll talk to them about the contract later.” Gao Fengwen’s tone was full of excitement. After so many years of wandering, the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association would finally have its own office space.
After a pause, he said, “President, there is one more thing. Many people in our association have received invitations from the Jiangnan Chamber of Commerce to a banquet in the evening. Do you think we should go?”
“Invitations from the Jiangnan Chamber of Commerce?” Qin Haodong picked up the red invitation card on the table and played with it in his hand. Then, he said, “This is your personal freedom. Whoever is interested can go to the party. Maybe you can advertise traditional Chinese medicine there.”
Gao Fengwen then hung up the phone.
Qin Haodong smiled and shook his head, thinking to himself that the old man was very interesting. He had to tell Qin Haodong every detail.
Lin Momo said, “What? When did you become the president? Why didn’t you mention that?”
“I’m the president of the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association. I have just been in office for less than two hours, so I was not able to talk to you yet.” Qin Haodong said with a smile, “By the way, didn’t you say that only members of the Jiangnan Chamber of Commerce can attend this banquet? Why did so many members of the Chinese Medicine Practitioner Association receive invitations?”
“They received invitations?” Lin Momo, who was a little surprised, said, “I don’t know why they did. There is no such precedent.”
After thinking for a while, she said thoughtfully, “What’s the matter? What the hell is Wang Haiting doing? Haitian Group is involved in the real estate and financial industry. I didn’t hear that they wanted to enter the pharmaceutical market!”
Qin Haodong said, “That doesn’t mean that they don’t want to do that now. Maybe they changed their minds after seeing the huge market effect of the Blood Revival Pill.”
Lin Momo nodded and said, “It’s possible. The value of the Blood Revival Pill is too great. So long as you are willing to make money, you will be able to enter the rich list of our country in a short time, which will inevitably make others feel jealous.
However, they don’t have the capacity to do that. Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company was set up by you alone. There is nobody else who can develop a medicine like the Blood Revival Pill.”
After work, they picked up the little one and went to the Jiangnan club together to attend the banquet in the evening.
Lin Momo, who was wearing a black evening dress, looked sexy but not vulgar. Every man would be attracted by her white skin and long black hair.
While Qin Haodong drove the car, he glanced at Lin Momo and said, “If I had known that you would dress up and look so beautiful, I would have asked Saber and his men to come with us. How many enemies will you make for me at the banquet?”
“Don’t worry, you are the only one for me. You are her father after al!” Lin Momo, who rarely showed her tender side, then said, “You are also rich now. Why don’t you change clothes? You always wear these cheap leisure clothes.”
“They are comfortable. Besides, I’m handsome. It doesn’t matter what I wear!”
“What do you mean? Do you think that I’m not beautiful because I love dressing up?”
Qin Haodong, who just wanted to show off, said, “No. In fact, you upgrade your clothes. You are so beautiful that your clothes look beautiful too!”
Lin Momo also liked her lover’s praise.
Qin Haodong thought that it was easy to get into trouble when he talked about this topic. Thus, he wanted to change the subject. Suddenly, his cell phone rang again.
It was a strange number. When the phone was connected, a voice said in the Celestial Empire’s language, “Hello, Doctor Sage. I’m Maldini Jr. from M country. In more than an hour, I will arrive at Jiangnan City. Where can I meet you?”
Qin Haodong thought of the appointment with Maldini Jr. and said, “Mr. Maldini, I’m going to a banquet at the Jiangnan club. You can come to Tangmen Traditional Chinese Medicine Company to see me tomorrow.”
“Oh! Will you go to the Jiangnan club for the banquet? I also received an invitation, but I refused in order to make an appointment with you. Since you will go to the banquet, I’ll ask my assistant to inform them that I’ll go. I’ll see you at the banquet later!”
Maldini Jr. said excitedly, “It’s so nice to meet you, Doctor Sage. You’re my idol!”
His enthusiasm was unlike Old Maldini’s calm personal style, which made others feel cordial.
After hanging up, Lin Momo asked, “Did Maldini Jr. call you? Did he come to Jiangnan City?”
“Yes! He came to see me.”
“Oh my God. If he has come here, many people will go crazy!”
Qin Haodong asked in surprise, “Why? Is he very famous?”
“Famous? Don’t you know anything about Maldini Jr?”
Qin Haodong spread his hands and said, “I only know that he is the son of Old Maldini.”
Lin Momo gave him a helpless look and then said, “He is a talented person. He controls the Midas Investment Corporation, which is the biggest investment company of the Old Maldini.
He has the foresight and the ability to turn stone into gold. He has made dozens of investments in the past few years without failure. Everyone says that he will be the best successor of Old Maldini.”
