He graduated from Zhejiang University with a degree in chemical engineering, and also has a graduate degree from Xi'an Jiaotong University and a doctorate in economics.

He then took on jobs in the provincial department of petroleum, the provincial planning agency, then at Quzhou-based Juhua Corporation, before entering politics as mayor of Wenzhou, then head of the Zhejiang provincial Development and Reform Commission. During this period he worked directly under then Zhejiang party chief Xi Jinping.
