In his speech, Secretary-General Wang Liming pointed out that the focus of the current work of the machine tool industry is still to accelerate transformation, upgrading and structural adjustment. At present, the machine tool industry is in a critical period of development, and it is also the crossroads of development. The distributors closely linked with the machine tool industry are also at such a crossroads, which need continuous innovation and structural adjustment. Wang Liming believed that: the distributor group should keep abreast of the needs of the user industry, adjust the product structure of the distribution and close to the high-end products, which is the primary direction of the construction of the distributor team and capacity-building; the distributor should adjust the supply channels and sales channels, constantly open up new markets and further subdivide the market; the distributor should adjust the distribution mode, make full use of the network and information technology. Means such as transformation to distributors and service providers to provide users with quality pre-sale and after-sale services. In addition, distributors also need to form a comprehensive integration with the machine tool industry chain, to serve users in an all-round way, to create greater economic benefits for users. Finally, Wang Liming invited the participants to participate actively in CIMT2109, which will be held in Beijing from April 15 to 20, 2019, to celebrate the industry event.
Jing Xiaobo, former inspector of the Coordinating Bureau of Operation Monitoring of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, made a report on the macro situation of China’s industrial economy. In 2018, China’s industrial production is steadily slowing down, he particularly analyzed the problems that need attention: first, the growth of domestic demand is slowing down; second, the uncertainties of Sino-US trade frictions have led to export-grabbing effect; third, the downward pressure of some provinces and municipalities has increased, and the industrial growth rate of more than half of the provinces has fallen year-on-year; fourth, the operation of enterprises in various industries has been divided, and the upstream energy and raw materials industries have been Production growth accelerated, the growth rate of downstream industries generally fell, and the growth rate of industrial added value of private enterprises continued to decline. Fifth, enterprises still have more difficulties, enterprise financing difficulties, product inventory growth rebounded, the pressure of enterprise repayment increased, liquidity was obviously tight. Sixth, PMI of manufacturing purchasing managers (November) fell back to the prosperity and decline line again. In 2019, China’s economic operation will show the following characteristics: the momentum of global economic recovery is weakening, the uncertainty of Sino-US trade frictions still exists, domestic demand growth is stable, the price rise of industrial products will further decline, and the growth of enterprise profits will further slow down.
Song Heping, former investigative Commissioner of the Trade Relief Bureau of the Ministry of Commerce, made a report on the hot issues of the Sino-US trade war. He analyzed in detail the causes, essence, impact, resolution, response and Enlightenment of the Sino-US trade war. In recent years, the United States has launched a series of investigations into China’s high-end manufacturing and high-tech development industries. Equipment manufacturing industry has become the most important industry in the US 337 China-related survey (Intellectual Property Survey), including 4-G communication equipment, integrated circuits, micro-electromechanical systems, sensors and other high-tech equipment products. These products are not only the key areas of Made in China 2025, but also the key areas of global industrial structure upgrading and emerging industry development in the future. They are also the key technology nodes in the technology system. The future Sino-US trade frictions will be long-term, complex and uncertain. For the manufacturing industry, an important response is to adhere to independent innovation, increase R&D efforts, and climb the technological peak.
Zhang Ming, consultant of China Automobile Industry International Cooperation Co., Ltd., made a report on the development of China’s automobile industry and the demand for machine tool industry. She pointed out that the automobile industry has entered a period of steady development, characterized by a certain degree of market saturation, stable development of the industry, rational development, more emphasis on product quality, to meet individual needs. In terms of macro-policy, the state plans to focus on developing energy-saving vehicles, new energy vehicles and smart-net combined vehicles in the future. Zhang Ming suggested that the machine tool industry should fully understand the development plan of the automobile industry; find the development path of the supply side and grasp the information, including the structure of automobile products and the demand of enterprises; seize the opportunity and develop products suitable for customers’needs with big data; maintain communication and communication with automobile enterprises, develop synchronously and supply effectively.
Liu Bingye, former director of Beijing Machine Tool Research Institute, made a report on the development of precision and ultra-precision CNC machine tools at home and abroad.
