5 Billion Projects and Calling for Justice to the County Magistrate

Around 2016, Yang Rui plans to negotiate with the county government to adopt the PPP model and invest 2 billion yuan in the construction of the water town project in Dengcheng. The first time we met, Xiong Ping, then mayor of Shangshui County, noticed something unusual. He must be a big shot if he invests 2 billion yuan, but I ask many questions and nobody knows her.
Xiong Ping said in an audio recording that Yang Rui had invited him to eat in private many times, and even called at 9 p.m. for an appointment, which he refused.

Yang Rui asked for a joint venture with the government, which accounted for 51% of the shares.
