The 53-year-old was elected an alternate member of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China last month.

He is a native of Rui'an, Zhejiang and has a master's degree in business administration.

The 37th session of the Standing Committee of the 11th Zhejiang Provincial People's Congress on Friday also accepted the resignation of former governor Xia Baolong, who was appointed the Party chief of Zhejiang Tuesday.
