Ma Yong pointed out that the brewing technology of Chinese liquor contains a long history and splendid culture. Wuliangye produced in Yibin uses five kinds of cereals as raw materials to refine multi-grain liquor with unique flavor.

In his keynote speech, he deeply analyzed the philosophical, cultural, mathematical, physical, chemical, geographical and aesthetic basis of Wuliangye's development. He believes that the basic philosophy of Wuliangye is the law of unity of opposites and the law of universal connection. The core culture of Wuliangye is the culture of the mean and harmony. The Wuliangye is a belief, paradigm and value orientation, whose wisdom is the wisdom of Chinese enterprises, the wisdom of Chinese entrepreneurs and the wisdom of developing the real economy.

Today, when human beings are moving towards the community of destiny, the philosophy of five elements contains the whole consciousness of harmony as the principle.
