Manchester is the largest city in New Hampshire and northern New England. It is said to be the "largest other city". In fact, it has a population of only about 110000. You can visit the small city all the way north from Elm Street in the center of Manchester, turn west to Webster street, turn back to Canal Street and go south. The most eye-catching thing in Manchester is the rows of maroon buildings in the city. The eye-catching signs on the wall show that these are 19th-century buildings. Next to a building marked "stark textile factory", there is a bronze statue of a female textile worker. Looking back into the distance, the female textile workers were silent, bringing people's thoughts into more than 200 years ago

Textile City has a long history

this year coincides with the 200th anniversary of this place being named Manchester. Before European immigrants settled here in 1722, local Indians called it namosky, which means "fishing place", because it was easy to fish from the emerski falls of the Merrimack river. In 1751, European immigrants renamed the place derifeld. In 1807, Samuel broget took the lead in excavating rivers and building sluice systems in the waterfall area of the Merrimack River to make the Merrimack River navigable. In 1809, Benjamin Pritchard and others used local water resources to create a cotton mill. Like Manchester, the first industrialized city in the British Industrial Revolution, Blodgett hopes to become "Manchester of the United States". At his suggestion, it was renamed Manchester in 1810. Since then, more and more textile mills have been set up in Manchester. By 1846, the 11th cotton mill in Manchester, with 4000 textile machines, became the largest cotton mill in the world at that time. From the second half of the 19th century to the early 20th century, a large number of workers poured into Manchester from all directions, including many French Canadians who went south from French speaking Canada

economic transformation has gone through difficulties

the bulletin board at the central garden of elm street also shows the busy and noisy days of Manchester, but this noise has long become history. The textile industry in Manchester experienced two heavy losses in the 1930s and 1980s, and has already entered the "Textile Museum". Since then, this industrial city with a long history has faced the problem of economic transformation

take a close look at the rows of maroon old textile factory buildings, and you can see that some plants are still abandoned, and some plants have been hung with signs such as "University of New Hampshire" or various companies on the roof. Deka company founded by Dean Kaman is an entrepreneurial pioneer promoting the economic transformation of Manchester. In 1984, Deka likened the tensile testing machine with a journey of 1 meter 2 The rubber information company bought an old textile factory building in Manchester, where it carried out research and development and produced high-tech products such as medical devices, robots, water purification equipment, wheelchairs that can go upstairs and downstairs. In the laboratory of Deka company, the person in charge introduced the "manipulator" under development to the. This kind of mechanical arm installed on the disabled has great market potential due to its light weight and the improvement of its flexibility and endurance performance

in the process of economic transformation, high-tech products such as alternative energy have become the key support objects of Manchester, among which the mascomo company established in 2005 is the leader. Nathan Margolis, director of the laboratory of muskmo company, said that unlike extracting ethanol from sugarcane and corn, the company is committed to extracting fiber ethanol from non food agroforestry raw materials such as waste wood and agricultural waste. Margolis said that as an alternative energy product, the company's products are expected to enter commercial production within oneortwo years

tax incentives attract enterprises

on the issue of economic transformation in Manchester, they successively interviewed New Hampshire congressman Carol porter to facilitate the rapid adjustment of the experimental space, Ms. Shea Porter, and the former governor of the state, Ms. Jeanne Shahin, the federal senator. They believe that in the difficult economic transformation, Manchester has made full use of its geographical advantages close to Boston and has Dartmouth College and other human resources. Maskomo has also established a research and development partnership with stanlimbus University in South Africa. In addition, Manchus has also been recognized by the majority of users. New Hampshire, where te is located, does not levy broad personal income tax, nor does it levy taxes on business, use, inventory, capital gains and professional services. The proportion of corporate tax is only equivalent to 8.5% of the company's annual net income. Many tax-free measures have made New Hampshire the second "tax-free state" in the United States after Alaska, and also made Manchester a sister city for enterprises to start businesses with high technology. This is why muskmo moved to Manchester from other states
