Since Gu Ning was also involved in the jade business, she had heard about Ma Jingshan too.Some people had talked about President Ma yesterday, but she hadnt heard his full name so she wasnt aware that President Ma was Ma Jingshan.Not only was Ma Jingshan the vice president of the Jade Association in Province Yun, he was also a member of the famous Ma family in County Yin, Province Yun.
The Ma family was the number one jade provider in County Yin, and it was as influential and rich as the three jade providers in City Teng.
Gu Ning was obviously happy to make friends with such an important figure.
“Youre indeed a very smart girl,” Ma Jingshan said with a smile.
Gu Nings polite attitude left a good impression on him.
After that, Ma Jingshan took out his name card and handed it to Gu Ning.
“This is my name card.
Miss Gu, whenever you visit County Yin, you can call me and you will be my distinguished guest there.”
The public institution that Ma Jingshan worked for was in City Yun which was the capital city of Province Yun, but Ma Jingshan actually spent more time in County Yin because he was aged now and was about to retire.
“Thank you so much, Mr.
Ma,” Gu Ning said and took Ma Jingshans name card.
She also politely handed Ma Jingshan her own name card.
“Ill be settling down in the capital a month from now.
Ma, if you visit the capital one day, please feel free to call me.”
“Thanks.” Ma Jingshan took Gu Nings name card.
Although they werent familiar with each other yet, they knew that they could be good friends.
In addition, Gu Nings jade companies were in Province Yun, so she might need Ma Jingshans help in the future.
Anyway, it wasnt a bad thing for her to improve her connections.
“Miss Gu, does your family also run a jewelry company since you bought so many jade raw materials,” Ma Jingshan asked.
He didnt think that Gu Ning bought those jade raw materials for herself.
Even though Gu Ning behaved like a mature businesswoman, she was still too young.
Ma Jingshan didnt know Gu Nings exact age, but he thought that she must be around 20 this year and should still be a student.
Gu Ning smiled and said, “Not really, Im involved in the jade business myself.”
“What” Ma Jingshan was shocked.
He soon realized that Gu Ning probably started a company on her own.
Ma, have you heard the news that the Wang family in City Teng was replaced by a new jade company not too long ago” Gu Ning asked.
“Yes, and I heard its a woman who did it,” Ma Jingshan said, then suddenly stopped.
“No way, is the woman you”
He couldnt believe it, but it was highly possible.
“Yes, its me,” Gu Ning said.
She wasnt showing off, but she thought that she should be honest with her friend.
They were doing business in the same industry, so it could help them avoid unnecessary and unjust competition if she told him the truth.
Not only Ma Jingshan, but others by his sides were also astonished.
To their astonishment, this young girl in front of them was able to replace the Wang family.
They werent sure whether Gu Ning was the reason why the Wang family lost its influence and position overnight, but it still wasnt easy to replace it.
In that case, Gu Ning must have powerful connections or support behind her back.
Moreover, it wasnt a secret that Colorful Jade Provider was very successful in the industry.
Even if Gu Ning didnt manage the company herself, she owned it.
She was a smart businesswoman, and she knew how to find a capable manager to run the company for her.
If she wanted to build her business empire, she had to learn how to rely on many skilled people to help her do that.
“Miss Gu, may I know your age” Ma Jingshan asked.
“Nineteen,” Gu Ning said.
Hearing that, Ma Jingshan was greatly surprised.
“Youre so much better than your peers!” Ma Jingshan said.
“Thank you for your compliment, Mr.
Ma,” Gu Ning said.
“Were doing business in the same industry, and competition is unavoidable, but I hope that we can compete with each other according to the rules instead of using some dirty tricks.”
Competition was always fierce in business.
“Sure,” Ma Jingshan said and agreed.
Peers werent enemies.
They could get along well with each other as long as nobody played dirty tricks.
Afterwards, they went to the nearby restaurant together to have some drinks and food before then going back to their seats half an hour later.
During the second half, Gu Ning won two partially-cut jade raw materials and four complete jade raw materials.
