(Character of the Two Sessions) Zhang Bo, member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference: Speed ​​up the layout of commodity resource allocation bases

  China News Service, Hangzhou, March 4th (Xi Jinyan, Tang Xiaopei) Commodities are related to the national economy and people's livelihood.

Faced with the triple pressure of demand contraction, supply shock, and weakening expectations, how to achieve stable supply and stable prices of bulk commodities?

  Zhang Bo, a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and vice chairman of Wuchan Zhongda Group Co., Ltd., suggested in an interview with a reporter from Chinanews.com to speed up the layout of oil and gas, minerals, and grain commodity resource allocation bases in the free trade pilot zones of coastal provinces in China. Revise the "Catalogue of Encouraging Imported Technologies and Products" to promote the diversification of import sources to better meet the growing domestic and production needs.

  There are more than 1,000 types of bulk commodities, such as oil, natural gas, coal, iron ore, etc., which are the cornerstone of the national economy and have a profound impact on residents' clothing, food, housing and transportation.

Since the outbreak of the epidemic, factors such as the limited global supply capacity, the lack of smooth shipping resulting in international logistics tension, and the global quantitative easing policy have pushed up international commodity prices.

  In response to rising commodity prices, China has introduced a series of measures to ensure supply and stabilize prices, including launching into key markets, cracking down on investment speculation and price hikes, and regulating market development.

However, from the perspective of supply, the supply of raw materials and bulk commodities has not returned to normal, and the supply chain bottleneck has not been eased.

  Under the new development pattern of "dual circulation", how to enhance China's competitiveness and voice in the global commodity market?

As a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference from a key enterprise in the local bulk commodity supply chain, Zhang Bo believes that the key is to enhance the ability to reserve and adjust bulk commodities.

  Zhang Bo suggested that the layout of commodity resource allocation bases should be accelerated in the pilot free trade zones of coastal provinces.

Among them, the trading venue is an important tool to play the role of resource allocation, enhance price influence, and stabilize price fluctuations in the international market.

She suggested that the Zhejiang Pilot Free Trade Zone should be used as a pilot to support the innovative trading model of spot trading venues to "try first", give tax policy support, and expand and strengthen the entire oil and gas industry chain.

  Zhang Bo told reporters that the reason why he proposed to let Zhejiang Province "go ahead and test first" is mainly because Zhejiang Province shoulders the major mission of "common prosperity demonstration zone", and the Zhejiang Pilot Free Trade Zone is committed to building an "international oil and gas trading center" and improving China's The resource allocation ability and price influence of oil and gas bulk commodities have the basis for the innovative trading model of "first try".

  The optimal allocation of global commodity resources is inseparable from the cooperation of "invisible" and "visible hands".

Focusing on the "dual-carbon" era, Zhang Bo also suggested speeding up the revision of the "Catalogue of Encouraging Imported Technologies and Products", encouraging the import of materials needed for new energy such as cobalt, nickel, and copper, increasing the import of primary products such as billets and slabs, and appropriately expanding scrap, The import of high-quality renewable raw materials has improved the level of resource recycling in my country.

  "In the foreign trade of bulk commodities, it is necessary to build a complete trade system led by the government and with the active participation of enterprises, and provide stable support in terms of funds and supporting facilities, so as to promote the long-term healthy development of the operation and transaction of international trade in bulk commodities." Zhang Bo said that in In the adjustment mechanism, leading and backbone enterprises should give full play to the ability to integrate upstream and downstream channel resources and the ability to prevent and control risks in the current period.

  Zhang Bo said that since the bulk commodities of leading and backbone enterprises are generally large and involve a lot of funds, this requires the support of banks.

But from the reality, the global credit system of domestic enterprises is not perfect.

  She suggested to further open up the domestic and international credit system of Chinese banks, provide policy guidance on overseas risk aversion and financial instruments, provide special import and export credit guarantees for enterprises undertaking the circulation of national strategic materials, and provide convenient cross-border financing services.

At the same time, it is necessary to give better play to the policy-oriented financial role of the National Export-Import Bank, appropriately increase the credit line of key import and export enterprises, and take multiple measures to "steer the rudder and sail through the waves".
