Chinaplas 2010: Accelerate the complementary advantages of the plastics industry on both sides of the Taiwan Strait to meet the tide of economic recovery
Following the exchanges between the cross-strait plastics industry in the '2009 Cross-Strait Plastics Industry Cooperation and Development Forum' held in Guangzhou last May, on March 5, 2010, Liao Zhenzhen, Chairman of the China Plastics Processing Industry Association, and Taiwan Machinery Industry Wang Zhengqing, director-general of the trade association, attended the “CHINAPLAS 2010 International Rubber and Plastics Exhibition” media dinner in Taipei, interacting with each other at close range, and jointly exploring the potential of the plastics industry on both sides of the strait, and joining hands to meet the opportunities after economic recovery. Among the guests participating in this exchange event were Mr. Zhu Yulun, Chairman of Adsale Exhibition Services Co., Ltd., the organizer of 'CHINAPLASMr. Feng Peixi, Chief Executive Officer of Exhibition (China) Co., Ltd., Mr. Xiao Dongbin, Chairman of Huarong Plastic Machinery Co., Ltd., and Mr. Wang Junxian, Deputy General Manager of FCS Precision Industry Co., Ltd. Last year, China's plastics industry, like many other countries in the world, was hit by the financial tsunami. It was the most difficult year since entering the new century. Even so, the output of China's plastic products reached 44,792,800 tons, a steady increase of 10.64%; exports reached US$34.1 billion, highlighting the strong market demand and development potential of China's plastics industry. To cope with the impact of the financial crisis, the Chinese government has launched ten policies to stimulate domestic demand and restore market confidence with a total investment of RMB 4 trillion, such as home appliances and automobiles to the countryside. These policies have stimulated market demand for plastics. And lead China's related industries out of the bottom. The joint cooperation of the plastics industry on both sides of the Taiwan Strait is believed to not only seize market opportunities for China’s domestic demand, but also to jointly expand the international market. Mr. Liao Zhenzhen pointed out at the meeting that China, as one of the most concerned markets in the world, needs Taiwanese capital to continue to play a role in mainland China. Taiwan’s plastics industry is good at design, while mainland China has huge manufacturing capabilities. Both parties can further strengthen Cooperation and complementary advantages will help expand the world market. Liao Zhenzhen believes that strengthening exchanges and promoting the economic and trade development of the plastics industry on both sides of the strait will benefit each other. He emphasized that the current and future plastics industry should continue to narrow the gap with advanced countries. China still needs to introduce new technologies, new products, and new processes from advanced countries. It needs advanced technology and management from Taiwan Province. Be stronger and bigger. Liao Zhenzhen believes that plastics are both consumer materials and production materials, with more and more applications, and the plastic products industry is the largest emerging industry in the light industry. In order to keep the plastics industry developing rapidly, steadily and healthily despite adversity, Liao Zhenzhen suggested that it should develop in the two major directions of 'going out' and 'inviting in'. 'Going out' refers to opening up new sales markets for existing products, and focusing on developing suitable products and expanding market shares in accordance with the needs of the international market; while 'inviting in' refers to the use of international technology, manpower, capital, and energy markets. In a relatively short period of time, we will vigorously introduce foreign high-end technology, management talents and advanced management experience, improve management level, continuously explore new advantages in traditional industries, accelerate product upgrading, and actively respond to new challenges. China is the world's largest production and export base for plastic machines, and Taiwan Province is the fifth largest producer of plastic machines in the world. This shows the importance of the two in the global rubber and plastics market, and the closeness of the relationship between the two is also sufficient. Shown in Asia's first international rubber and plastic exhibition-CHINAPLAS international rubber and plastic exhibition. Zhu Yulun pointed out that the 'CHINAPLAS 2010 International Rubber and Plastics Exhibition' will be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Center, China from April 19 to 22 this year. The Taiwan Plastic Products Industry Association will organize more than 85 Taiwanese rubber and plastic machinery and products companies to participate in the exhibition. This year, for the first time this year, it has received the support of the Taiwan Mold Industry Association to organize mold companies to participate in the exhibition. 'CHINAPLAS 2010' exhibitors from Taiwan Province also include Formosa Plastics, Taichung Precision Machinery, Quanlifa, Baisu, Alfa, Kunxin, Tung Yu, Xinyi, Nan Rong, Fuwei, Fuqiang Giants such as Xin, Huarong, Chongwei, Weili, Hanwang, Huaqin, Longmeng, Fengtie, etc., reflect Taiwan Province’s optimistic attitude in opening up the Chinese market. Zhu Yulun stated that in 2008, the three major importing countries of rubber and plastic machinery in Taiwan Province were Japan, Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Germany. At the CHINAPLAS 2010, Taiwanese visitors could not only observe the most Advanced rubber and plastic technology and equipment, and you can go to the China Export Machinery and Raw Materials Pavilion to learn about the development of China's rubber and plastic technology. At last year's exhibition, Taiwan Province was one of the top five sources of visitors except China. In addition to exhibiting chemical raw materials from more than 30 countries and regions, as well as high-end plastic and rubber processing machinery and equipment, CHINAPLAS 2010 also held a concurrent event with the theme of 'Green Manufacturing-Shaping the Future'. Among them, the forum with the theme of 'Global Plastics Industry Facing the Challenges of Sustainable Development' invited experts from Europe, the United States, China and Japan to participate in the exchange. In addition, the conference will invite successful companies from the electronics, automotive, packaging and construction industries to share the application status and development trends of green plastics in different industries. With the increasing awareness of environmental protection on both sides of the Taiwan Strait, coupled with the fact that green products are becoming the new favorites of the world, I believe that the cooperation prospects of the industries on both sides of the strait in recyclable and decomposable green plastics are bright.
