Speech by Chairman Wang Shumin at the 13th Procurement Summit
- China International Engineering Procurement Alliance, contributes to accelerating the industrialization of new construction
Jiandao.com recently learned that in this early summer season when the climate is pleasant and the flowers are in full bloom, Beijing has ushered in the smooth holding of the 13th China International Engineering Procurement Alliance Supply and Demand Cooperation Summit Forum.
At the Boao Forum in Asia, which ended not long ago, Chairman Xi Jinping gave a video keynote speech, focusing on the current international and regional situations and global risk challenges, and proposed the theme of the annual conference: to participate in the grand event of global governance, and to ensemble the strong voice of the Belt and Road Initiative. President Xi comprehensively and systematically expounded the "China Concept" and "China Plan" to promote the development and prosperity of Asia and the world. In 2020, it is not easy and extraordinary. Despite the severe impact of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the construction of the Belt and Road still shows great resilience, and it has delivered a dazzling report card. In the first quarter of 2021, China's imports and exports to countries along the Belt and Road reached 2.5 trillion yuan, an increase of 21.4%, accounting for 29.5% of China's total foreign trade import and export value. The Belt and Road Initiative has played an important role in the recovery of the world economy after the epidemic, and will continue to promote enhanced cooperation with countries around the world to promote world peace, security, prosperity and sustainable development.
The camel bell rang, and the treasure ship set sail. The ancient Silk Road brought high-quality products such as porcelain, tea, silk and fair trade exchanges to countries along the route. Today, millennia later, the proposal and practice of the Belt and Road Initiative has brought large-scale projects and infrastructure construction to countries along the route. The association currently has more than 500 member companies and cooperates in 190 countries and regions around the world. Overall, the projects undertaken by countries along the Belt and Road account for nearly 60% of the overseas projects of Chinese companies, and the Belt and Road Initiative is the foundation for its development. Facilities cooperation provides a very important market.
2021 is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China. On the occasion of the centenary of the party, the "China International Engineering Procurement Alliance Supply and Demand Cooperation Summit Forum" was successfully held to the 13th. Under the direct guidance and care of the Ministry of Commerce and relevant leaders, it has served nearly 10,000 people including more than 2,000 contractors, more than 1,000 suppliers, 100 investment and financing institutions, embassies and consulates; 3,868 people have been solicited and connected. Projects under construction, 121 proposed projects, 489 subcontracted projects, 740 investment and financing needs, and 3365 batches of matching procurement needs, involving building materials and decoration materials, pipe fittings, prefabricated buildings and integrated houses, electric energy, Transportation engineering technology and facilities, formwork scaffolding and aerial work platforms, elevators, construction machinery and other equipment and materials have accumulated purchase intentions of more than 197 billion yuan. I believe that under the deployment of high-quality development of the Belt and Road Initiative during the “14th Five-Year Plan” period of the country, with the joint efforts of industry colleagues, guests, new and old friends, this summit will achieve fruitful results and contribute to the party’s 100 Anniversary gift!
In order to realize the "star sea" of the engineering construction industry, more than 200 general contracting companies have organized and established the China International Engineering Procurement Alliance. This summit will announce the first batch of qualified suppliers of the alliance to further expand the number of alliance members and build The virtuous cycle of supply and procurement will contribute to boosting the development of the industry and accelerating the improvement of the level of industrialization of new buildings!
