China News Service, May 24, Cong Liang, Secretary General of the National Development and Reform Commission, said on the 24th that the overseas epidemic situation is still spreading, international economic and trade activities are severely hindered, and the global industrial chain and supply chain are also on the verge of interruption. China has been deeply integrated into the global industrial chain, which is inevitably impacted and affected, and measures must be taken to maintain the stability of the industrial chain and supply chain. This is also an important part of the "Six Guarantees" proposed this year.
On May 24, the State Development and Reform Commission held a press conference and asked Ning Jizhe, deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission, Cong Liang, secretary-general, and Zhao Chenxin, deputy secretary-general, to do a solid job of “six stability” and “six guarantees”, and strive to complete the annual economy Social development goals and tasks, and answer questions from reporters.
A reporter asked: The new coronary pneumonia epidemic has a great impact on the global supply chain and industrial chain. Some countries have increased their return to enterprises. My question is, what challenges will China's supply chain and industrial chain face? How can we continue to upgrade the industrial chain and supply chain while ensuring the stability and competitiveness of the industrial chain and supply chain in the future?
Cong Liang said that since the beginning of this year, the sudden new coronary pneumonia epidemic has brought a huge impact on China's economic and social development. Various regions and departments have focused on alleviating the difficulties of enterprises, smoothing the supply chain cycle, and supporting the coordinated resumption of production and industrial production. , Promoting the resumption of work on major projects, and accurately and forcefully introduced 90 policy measures in eight areas.
At present, with the implementation of these policy measures, the policy effect is showing, and the resumption of production and production of enterprises is gradually approaching or reaching normal levels. The statistics of electricity generation can best explain the problem. According to industry statistics, electricity generation in March decreased by 4.6% year-on-year, and increased by 0.3% year-on-year in April. Currently, the first 20 days of May are up 5.2% year-on-year, an increase of nearly 10 from March percentage point.
Cong Liang pointed out that the overseas epidemic situation is still spreading, international economic and trade activities are seriously hindered, the global industrial chain and supply chain are also on the verge of interruption, and the factors of uncertainty and instability have increased significantly. China has been deeply integrated into the global industrial chain, which is inevitably impacted and affected, and measures must be taken to maintain the stability of the industrial chain and supply chain. This is also an important part of the "Six Guarantees" proposed this year.
In the next step, the National Development and Reform Commission will work with relevant parties to consolidate and expand the domestic epidemic prevention and control achievements, and further implement the various support policies that have been issued to ensure the stability of the industrial chain and supply chain. Improve competitiveness.
On the one hand, it is necessary to fully smooth the circulation of the industrial chain and supply chain. Further increase the efforts to help enterprises to bail out, and implement various policies such as fiscal and taxation, finance, social security, employment, and rent. These policies have been introduced, and it has been clarified that many policies will continue until the end of the year. The key is to put them in place to help enterprises, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, stabilize production and overcome difficulties. Focusing on key industrial chains and major investment projects to break through plugging points and unblock difficulties, focus on leading enterprises to strengthen factor guarantees, promote upstream and downstream industries, production, sales and supply, as well as the overall support of large and medium-sized enterprises, and comprehensive resumption of production. Some large enterprises resume work faster, but small enterprises do not resume work, which also affects the circulation of the entire industrial chain. Only when large, medium and small synergies can comprehensively resume work and resume production. At the same time, we must optimize the supply chain system, coordinate domestic and international logistics resources, and ensure the smooth flow of large logistics channels such as railways, aviation, and shipping.
On the other hand, we must focus on improving the level of the industrial chain and supply chain. It is necessary to consolidate traditional industrial advantages, strengthen the leading position of advantageous industries, support enterprises to implement technological transformation and break through bottleneck constraints, vigorously promote shortcomings, strengths and weaknesses, enhance the elasticity and resilience of the industrial chain, and enhance the advanced industrial base The level of modernization of the chain. At the same time, carry out digital transformation actions to encourage enterprises to promote the digital transformation of the supply chain and improve flexibility and coordination. At the same time, it is necessary to organize the implementation of pilot projects for the deep integration and development of advanced manufacturing and modern service industries, vigorously develop new industries, new formats, and new models, and cultivate new growth points and growth poles.
Cong Liang emphasized that ensuring the stability of the global industrial chain and supply chain is by no means a country's business. The international community should join hands to strengthen international cooperation, jointly cope with challenges, control the spread of the epidemic as soon as possible, and push the industry back to normal Track, and promote the economic and social system to achieve a dynamic cycle and healthy development.
