The spirit of the workers in the Daqing Oilfield

In early 1960, tens of thousands of workers from all over the country gathered on the Songnen Plain in northeast China, presented to support a massive campaign to tap oil that was urgently needed by the country.

The arduous task hastened the budding of a new spirit, embodied in the patriotism that encourages people to win honor for the nation, the will to act on their own initiative, the determination to be honest and strict with themselves, and the desire to keep the country’s overall interests in mind.
