In his speech, Chen said that Chinaundefineds reform and opening-up for more than 40 years, the rapid development of the aluminum processing industry and the production and consumption of aluminum have been the first in the world for 12 years. The expansion of the scale of Chinaundefineds aluminum processing industry, the improvement of the technical equipment and the expansion of market share both benefit from the huge market potential of China and benefit from the interconnection of the international division of labor in the industrial chain. In 2018, about 88% of the aluminum produced by China is used for domestic consumption and about 12% of the international market. This is also a significant part of the products produced by foreign-funded enterprises in Chinaundefineds investment and construction plants. In general, the aluminum material produced by China, while meeting domestic demand, has also shared the market dividend of the open development of Chinaundefineds aluminum processing industry. It can be said that in the past few decades, the booming of Chinaundefineds aluminum processing industry is an important force to support the sustainable development of the global aluminum processing industry.
Chen said that in recent years, in the face of the complex and changeable world economic and trade situation, Chinaundefineds aluminum processing industry is also adjusting the train of thought, stabilizing and seeking to change, and making efforts to adapt to the change of internal and external environment. First, we should adhere to the general requirements of the structural reform of the supply side, follow the internal logic of the new normal economy, and the growth rate of the aluminum processing is decreased, but the variety, brand, quality and service are increasing continuously. By increasing the research and development of the product, strengthening the fine management of the whole process, raising the technical equipment level around the intelligent manufacturing industry, the supporting ability of the aluminum processing industry to guarantee the economic and social development is continuously enhanced. Second, we should actively carry out the idea of green development, vigorously carry out energy-saving and emission reduction, accelerate the promotion of clean production, adhere to the development route of lower carbonization, make the overall layout of the industry more reasonable, and work more closely with the upstream and downstream enterprises. The leading enterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises of the industry are more efficient, convenient and accurate to serve in the terminal market, and are gradually changing from the past single material supplier to the overall solution provider. Third, we should always adhere to the expansion of the non-relaxation of the application, strengthen the deep connection with the consumption of the downstream terminal, spare no effort to expand the traditional consumption field and the emerging consumer market, not only increase the effective supply of the aluminum processing products, but also meet the diversification demand of the downstream consumption, Not only the self-development vigor is added, but also the practical effect of the expanded application is achieved. Fourth, we should always adhere to the open cooperation, the inclusive and mutually beneficial development idea, adhere to the introduction and go out and try to go out and try to practice the "One Belt and One Road" initiative, take care to deal with the trade protectionism and the reverse globalization thinking, and actively follow the multilateral trade rules under the WTO framework, To maintain a good business environment and market order, to contribute to the strength of Chinaundefineds aluminum processing industry.
Chen Quanxuan stressed that at present, Chinaundefineds economic development has entered a new era, facing the worldundefineds century-old changing situation, Chinaundefineds aluminum processing industry will maintain a clear mind and understanding, adhere to reform and opening up, adhere to win-win cooperation, insist on self-innovation, adhere to the internal work hard, strive to supplement the short board, comprehensively improve the overall strength of the industry, continuously promote the industry to high-quality and beneficial growth.
In his speech, the general manager of Yuefeng Aluminum Group said: in 2018, in the face of the severe domestic and international market situation, Chinaundefineds aluminum processing industry resolutely implemented the decision-making arrangements of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, and, with the support of relevant state ministries and commissions and the leadership of the China Nonferrous Metals Industry Association, took the lead in implementing the eight-character policy of "consolidating, strengthening, upgrading, and unimpeded" and deepening supply-side structural reform. Constantly strengthen their own core competitiveness and the ability to resist external risks, speed up the adjustment and improvement of product structure, improve the technical level of equipment, and achieve high-quality development. With the new era of Chinese economy, the yearning for a better life of the people has put forward higher requirements for the development of aluminum processing, but the development of aluminum processing industry in China is unbalanced and the problem of insufficient development is still prominent. The industrial growth rate slows down, environmental protection events occur from time to time, the profitability is insufficient, and the lack of original innovation is still the main obstacle to the development of aluminum processing industry.
In this regard, Aohong believes that the first is to adhere to the original intention and mission of the aluminum processing industry. General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized that we should not forget our first intention, remember our mission, be brave in taking on it and be willing to contribute more to the long march of the new era. Aluminum processing in China Aluminum Group always adheres to the initiative and mission of ensuring the self-control of key aluminium alloy materials in key areas such as aerospace defense, military industry, automobile, rail transit and so on, and strives unremittingly for it. In 2018, the leaders of China Aluminum Group were invited to attend the Chang'e 4 commendation event held by the central leadership in the Great Hall of the People. As the only representative of the central enterprises supporting the population, they made an exchange speech at the annual meeting of the National Defense Science and Technology Work Conference. These are not only the affirmation of the work of China Aluminum Group, but also the encouragement and spur. Second, we should adhere to science and technology, green two-wheel drive. Scientific and technological innovation is the first driving force for leapfrogging development and processing. In recent years, the innovation level of aluminium processing in China has been greatly improved, but some high-end aluminium materials in aviation, aerospace, shipping and other fields still need to rely on imports. There are still some gaps between the developed countries and the basic theory of aluminium alloy, engineering application technology and high-end equipment development. We must comprehensively enhance the ability of scientific and technological innovation, especially the original innovation ability. Only by grasping the key core technology in our own hands can we grasp the initiative of competition and development, and fundamentally guarantee national economic security, national defense security and other security. Green ecology is the basic requirement of sustainable development of industry. Green ecological development of aluminium processing includes two aspects. On the one hand, it is necessary to accelerate the development of green and energy-saving short-process manufacturing technology, reduce production cycle, cost and energy consumption such as casting and rolling, strengthen pollution control of aluminium processing, and transform the passive pollution prevention and control into the initiative to promote the development of green environmental protection industry. On the other hand, we should make full use of the advantages of light weight, corrosion resistance and recyclability of aluminium, and expand the application of aluminium in transportation, lightweight, green building, etc. Third, we should firmly build the fate community of the industry. At present, international competition is becoming increasingly fierce and trade frictions between China and the United States are continuing. China's aluminium processing industry should strengthen cooperation between upstream and downstream industry chains, enterprises and research institutes, enterprises, strengthen industry self-discipline, avoid vicious price competition within the industry, and strive to cultivate a mutually beneficial and win-win cooperation mechanism.
Ao Hong said that opportunities and challenges coexist on the road to high-quality development, and glory and hardship coexist. Chinalco Group will share weal and woe with all of you to create a better tomorrow for aluminum processing in China.
In his speech, Ron Nepp said that in recent years, the International Aluminum Association has witnessed the achievements made by the China Nonferrous Metals Industry Association in opening up new application markets for the aluminum industry. In the transportation industry, China has built the worldundefineds leading high-speed railway network, and continues to expand the application of aluminum in light rail, cars, buses, trucks and fast-growing new energy vehicles. In the construction industry, new formwork, pedestrian overpass, indoor home and interior decoration all stimulate the demand for aluminum. He revealed that a study of aluminum consumption in Chinaundefineds automotive industry conducted by (IAI) shows that by 2030, Chinaundefineds automobile industry is likely to undergo a major shift from fuel vehicles to new energy vehicles, with aluminum consumption increasing from 3.8 million tons in 2018 to more than 9 million tons in 2030, with a compound annual growth rate of about 8 percent. Another study on the optimal performance of aluminum cables shows that the advantages of aluminum cables are also promising. Under the background of the increasing demand for lightweight, energy saving and environmental protection in various application fields, the International Aluminum Association is willing to continue to let the vibrant aluminum industry contribute to the sustainable development of society.
Zhang Lan said in her speech that after years of development, Chinaundefineds aluminum processing industry has made remarkable achievements, has become a truly large aluminum processing industry, and began to enter into a strong country in the aluminum processing industry. However, with the slowdown of industrial and aluminum consumption growth, Chinaundefineds aluminum processing industry is also facing unprecedented challenges: increasingly fierce competition for homogeneous products, insufficient independent innovation capacity, increasing environmental pressure, making the business form of enterprises more severe and international trade frictions increasing the uncertainty of the development of Chinaundefineds aluminum industry. It is believed that through the annual International Aluminum processing Forum, we can more deeply understand the opportunities and challenges existing in the aluminum industry, and form a consensus on the future development, and jointly promote the healthy and orderly development of the aluminum industry in China.
In his speech, Cao Yubin said that the government of Binzhou will focus on building the target of the "Chinaundefineds aluminum" "world aluminum valley", to push forward the extension of the aluminum industry chain to the downstream, to the high-end transformation of the products, to increase the value chain to high-value-added value, and to accelerate the production of the 500-million-level industrial cluster. The new material industrial base of a national light-weight high-strength alloy is built, and the aluminum industry is promoted to be developed to the deep-processing direction of aluminum products such as aerospace, military industry, rail transit, ocean engineering, high-end electronic products and the like.
