the impact of the "the Belt and Road" plan on the upstream and downstream industries of coatings

May 7, 2015

[China coating information] the Silk Road originated in ancient China and is an ancient road commercial trade route connecting Asia, Africa and Europe. What we want to discuss here is the impact of the "the Belt and Road" plan at the national level on the coating industry itself and its upstream and downstream industries? What opportunities and challenges will it bring? How should the managers of coating enterprises respond? To solve all these problems, we must first understand the connotation of the "the Belt and Road"

when attending the 2013 China ASEAN Expo, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang emphasized to pave the maritime silk road facing ASEAN and create a strategic fulcrum to drive the development of the hinterland

on June 22, 2014, the 38th World Heritage conference held in Doha, Qatar, announced that the "Silk Road: the road of Chang'an Tianshan corridor" jointly declared by China, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan has been successfully declared as a world cultural heritage site

on February 1st, 2015, the working conference on promoting the construction of the "the Belt and Road" was held in Beijing. Zhang Gaoli, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and vice premier of the State Council, presided over the meeting and delivered a speech

on the afternoon of March 28, 2015, the national development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of foreign affairs, unity and cooperation, and the Ministry of Commerce jointly released the vision and action to promote the joint construction of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st century Maritime Silk Road

from the above development context, we can see that in addition to expanding production capacity, countries attach importance to the "the Belt and Road" strategy, which will certainly have a significant impact on China's economic and political ecology, and will also provide rare opportunities and great challenges for the coating industry, which coating enterprises must pay attention to

"the Belt and Road" specifically refers to what

"the the Belt and Road" is not an entity and mechanism, but a concept and initiative of cooperative development. It relies on the existing bilateral and multilateral mechanisms between China and relevant countries, with the help of existing and effective regional cooperation platforms, aiming to borrow the historical symbols of the ancient "Silk Road", hold high the banner of peaceful development, actively develop economic partnership with countries along the route, and jointly build political mutual trust, economic integration Community of interests, community of destiny and community of cultural inclusion

in China, the provinces finalized by the "the Belt and Road" include 6 provinces in the northwest, 3 provinces in the northeast, 3 provinces in the southwest, 5 coastal provinces such as Guangdong and Zhejiang, and the inland region is Chongqing

"the Belt and Road" refers to overcapacity and excess foreign exchange assets in China; Oil and gas resources and mineral resources are highly dependent on foreign countries; Industry and infrastructure are concentrated along the coast, and it is easy to lose core facilities in case of external attacks. Therefore, it is very important to strengthen exchanges and cooperation with surrounding countries in all aspects. The Silk Road Economic Belt strategy covers the economic integration of Southeast Asia and Northeast Asia, and finally integrates to Europe, forming a general trend of economic integration in Eurasia. The strategy of the 21st century Maritime Silk Road Economic Belt connects the three continents of Europe, Asia and Africa by sea and the Silk Road Economic Belt strategy forms a closed loop of sea and land

the "the Belt and Road" strategy is supported by nearly 60 countries. More than 50 countries have clearly expressed their willingness to participate in the "the Belt and Road" strategy. This means that at least half of the countries in Eurasia have clearly expressed their willingness to participate, and the number of countries willing to participate is still increasing. The booming market of cooperation in various fields at home and abroad has provided a direction and outlet for the sluggish situation of China's coating industry in recent years. The wide scope and deep structure of the the Belt and Road will certainly provide a fulcrum for visionary coating enterprises to achieve perfect transformation and upgrading

the significance and impact of the "the Belt and Road"

the positive economic pattern of the world today is undergoing profound changes, and there is still a large gap in the degree of development of different countries. The idea of putting forward the "the Belt and Road" is to conform to the trend of world multipolarization, economic globalization, cultural diversification, and social informatization, uphold the spirit of open regional cooperation, and strive to maintain the global free trade system and open world economy

domestically, to promote the construction of the "the Belt and Road", China will give full play to the comparative advantages of various regions in the country, implement a more proactive opening-up strategy, strengthen the interaction and cooperation between the East and the west, and comprehensively improve the level of an open economy. For example, in the coastal and Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan regions, taking advantage of the high degree of openness, strong economic strength and great radiation driving effect of economic zones such as the Yangtze River Delta, the Pearl River Delta, the West Bank of the Strait and the Bohai rim, we will accelerate the construction of China (Shanghai) pilot free trade zone and support Fujian to build the core area of the 21st century Maritime Silk Road. Give full play to the role of Shenzhen Qianhai, Guangzhou Nansha and other open cooperation zones, deepen cooperation with Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, and build Guangdong Hong Kong Macao Greater Bay area

specifically, the "the Belt and Road" has the following three meanings:

1 Exploring the path of economic growth

China will strive to promote cooperation and dialogue among countries along the route, establish a new type of global development partnership that is more equal and balanced, and consolidate the foundation for the long-term stable development of the world economy

2. Realize the rebalancing of globalization

the "the Belt and Road" encourages opening to the west, drives the development of the West and the development of landlocked countries and regions such as Central Asia and Mongolia, and promotes the concept of inclusive development of globalization in the international community; At the same time, it is China's initiative to promote China's high-quality production capacity and comparative advantage industries to the west, which will benefit the countries along the way and along the coast first

3. Creating a new type of regional cooperation

China's reform and opening up is the largest innovation in the world today. As a comprehensive opening-up strategy, the "the Belt and Road" is innovating economic development theory, regional cooperation theory and globalization theory with economic corridor theory, economic belt theory and international cooperation theory in the 21st century

the impact of the "the Belt and Road" on the coating industry

has paved the way for a long time, and finally comes to the key point. As a national strategic concept, can the "the Belt and Road" have an impact on the coating industry? The answer is yes. We can see that the cooperation among countries and regions in the the Belt and Road involves all aspects, which cannot be separated from the construction of infrastructure. This requires the participation of the coating industry and its upstream and downstream industries, such as the construction of high-speed railways, oil and gas pipelines, port construction, etc., and the high-specification level expands the market of coating and other industries in this regard

Chen Yao, Secretary General of the China Association of regional economics, said: "the 'the Belt and Road' strategy is expected to be fully implemented and rolled out in 2015, and national level planning plans or guidance will soon be issued. A number of infrastructure projects focusing on railway construction and nuclear power cooperation are expected to be substantially implemented in the near future."

as Lin Yifu, a member of the National Committee of the Chinese people's Political Consultative Conference and economist, analyzed, "there are still a lot of arrears in China's infrastructure construction. Although there are many high-speed railways, highways and airports between cities, the construction of rail transit, subways and roads in the city is seriously insufficient, underground pipelines are obviously aging, and many cities are plagued by traffic jams and urban waterlogging. Investment in these areas has huge social and economic benefits." With the promotion and implementation of the strategic concept, some industries have tasted the sweetness in it, and it is believed that the market among them is also worth exploring by coating enterprises

the 33rd Dongguan famous furniture exhibition held in March this year aims to build an industrial comprehensive exhibition and sales platform for the domestic furniture industry to connect with the "the Belt and Road" strategy. For the first time, an export-oriented international pavilion with an area of 30000 square meters has been set up, and nearly 200 furniture enterprises focusing on overseas markets have gathered in the pavilion. According to the relevant person in charge of the famous furniture club, Dongguan furniture industry is not only accelerating towards the countries related to the "the Belt and Road" in terms of products, but also the overseas expansion of Dongguan furniture brands is gratifying

in addition, countries along the "the Belt and Road" have different resource endowments, strong economic complementarity, and great potential and space for cooperation. With policy communication, facility connectivity, unimpeded trade, financing, and people to people connectivity as the main contents, it is also proposed to strengthen cooperation in infrastructure transportation facilities, port construction, oil and gas pipeline construction, cross-border optical cable and other communication network construction, and strengthen communication in trade, investment, emerging industries, industrial chain division of labor, financing and other aspects

statistics show that the total population along the "the Belt and Road" is about 4.4 billion, and the total economic volume is about $21 trillion, accounting for 63% and 29% of the world respectively. With the continuous promotion of the strategy, the "the Belt and Road" is expected to become a new growth point of China's economy. Zuo Zongshen, member of the CPPCC National Committee and chairman of Zongshen group, said, "for enterprises, now 'going global' is the biggest opportunity. Global coatings understands that the the Belt and Road will expand a broader market, and many countries in the the Belt and Road region are developing countries, which need China's production capacity and technology to achieve local development. Chinese enterprises should comply with the big strategy and find development space in this context."

for domestic coating enterprises, facing such a strategic idea, the first solar impulse 2, the world's first solar aircraft, has completed the yuchengqiu first flight cruise. First, we should deeply explore the opportunities of domestic supporting construction. Domestic high-speed rail construction, park construction, urbanization construction will drive the coating market. Second, we should go out, undertake overseas projects, build production bases, grasp the local market, and so on

however, if coating enterprises want to share in the trend of the times, they must first achieve a magnificent turn of "transformation and upgrading". Upgrading mainly depends on technological innovation to meet international and market needs. The current overcapacity and commercial capacity force enterprises to think about where to turn their surplus capital, and the "the Belt and Road" gives a direction. If we carry out transformation in this direction, intensive cultivation will greatly increase the probability of success

to sum up, in order to promote the implementation of the grand strategy of the "the Belt and Road", China has made great investment in human, material and financial resources. With this strong impetus, the "the Belt and Road" will bring business opportunities and development direction to China's coating industry, and accelerate the industry reshuffle and the transformation and upgrading of enterprises
