At the same time, domestic and foreign demand is steadily picking up, consumption potential is also continuing to be released, industrial product exports have maintained rapid growth, manufacturing investment has also recovered, and industrial growth has gradually entered a virtuous circle track.

  The third is to accelerate the development and growth of new drivers.

The growth of new industries and new products is strong. In the first quarter, the added value of high-tech manufacturing and equipment manufacturing above designated size increased by 31.2% and 39.9% year-on-year, respectively. The two-year average growth rate reached 12.3% and 9.7%, both faster than the overall manufacturing industry. Level.

Investment in high-tech manufacturing increased by 41.6% year-on-year, and the two-year average growth rate reached 10.7%, which was also significantly higher than the overall manufacturing level.

The output of smart low-carbon products increased rapidly. In the first quarter, the output of new energy vehicles, industrial robots and other products increased by 3.1 times and 1.1 times respectively year-on-year.

New business formats and new models continue to emerge. New models such as live delivery, remote office, online diagnosis and treatment are developing well, and online and offline integration is speeding up.

While seeing the achievements, we must also pay close attention to the new situations and new problems that have emerged in the economic operation.

The current global epidemic situation still has great uncertainty. The world economic situation is complex and changeable. There is still a process for domestic and foreign demand to return to normal levels. The imbalance of recovery between industries and enterprises still exists, raw material growth is rising, and chip supply is rising. Problems such as shortages have emerged, and the production and operation of enterprises are still facing more difficulties, and the foundation for continuous recovery needs to be further consolidated.

  "Of course, we must also see that the fundamentals of my country’s long-term economic improvement have not changed. It has entered a new stage of development, implemented new development concepts, and built a new development pattern. The foundation for sustainable industrial development is more solid and stable, and the high-quality development pace of the manufacturing industry. More stable and powerful, with continuous optimization and improvement of supply quality and industrial competitiveness, we are confident, confident, and able to achieve a good start to the "14th Five-Year" industrial economy."
