On March 5, 2015, Premier Li Keqiang first proposed the grand plan of “Made in China 2025” when he delivered the “Government Work Report” at the National Two Sessions. In just three years, this plan has not only been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people at home, but also has symbolic significance for countries and enterprises around the world on the international stage.
Although most countries in the world have a very friendly attitude towards “Made in China 2025”, the United States, the world’s largest economy, has adopted some repressive measures to target the rising Chinese manufacturing industry.
U.S. sanctions will only move China’s smart manufacturing forward
In April 2018, the U.S. government announced that it would ban ZTE from purchasing sensitive products from U.S. companies for the next seven years. Immediately, ZTE’s AH shares were suspended from trading. Affected by this, ZTE’s main business activities could not be carried out. Although the ban was finally contacted, it would have an impact on ZTE’s global and China’s operator network construction, most likely to affect the future 5G network. advance.
Not long ago, Meng Wanzhou, vice chairman of Huawei, was arrested in Vancouver, Canada, and the United States requested extradition. This incident has caused a very bad impact around the world. This time, it is also very likely that it is aimed at Huawei’s current good operating status and related core technologies. It should be pointed out that on the issue of extradition, Trump exposed the ugly face of his businessman background. He expressed that he hoped to use the Meng Wanzhou incident as a bargaining chip with Beijing, but the Canadian foreign minister hit back with a warning. Trump demanded.
In addition, in November this year, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industrial Security issued a proposal for export control of key technologies and products, which listed 14 technologies including artificial intelligence, robotics, and biotechnology.
What we can see behind the sanctions against Huawei and ZTE and the technical control is that the rise of China’s technology, the recovery of the manufacturing industry, and the rapid growth of China have surprised the world. China is working hard on technologies such as chips and industrial internet of Things. Moving forward, even if China is in a leading position in the world in 5G technology, based on these, the United States will panic even more about the throne of its first economy.
Quoting the point of view mentioned by British professor Ross Siyi in his speech “Why the U.S. Must Slow China’s Economic Development”, the U.S. economy has been slowing down for 15 years, and the GDP growth rate is only 2.4%. The only thing that can help the U.S. can be stronger than China is The way to do this is to induce a slowdown in the Chinese economy.
After being frequently suppressed and sanctioned by the United States, China’s technology companies should think hard, reflect on their own, and truly develop into a position that can independently innovate and take the initiative.
China 2018 Smart Manufacturing Transcript
Although many Chinese companies were affected by the Sino-US trade war in 2018, China’s smart manufacturing still showed a good trend in 2018. According to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, in 2018, China will continue to implement intelligent manufacturing pilot demonstration projects, and more than 100 projects will be selected. Among them, CRRC has obtained a total of 23 intelligent manufacturing projects approved by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Ministry of Science and Technology.
In addition, private Internet companies are also gradually entering the smart manufacturing industry. For example, Alibaba Cloud and Siemens have jointly built the Industrial Internet of Things, Baidu Smart Factory and JD Smart Supply Chain. Foxconn, which went public this year, is also working hard to transform from a foundry to an industrial Internet, including producing chips and deploying production line Robots. In addition, entity enterprises represented by Gree are also entering the field of intelligent manufacturing.
Specifically, in terms of typical applications, according to Deloitte’s 2018 “Intelligent Manufacturing in China, Steady and Far-reaching – 2018 China Intelligent Manufacturing Report”, China has become the largest consumer of industrial robots, and demand has grown strongly. According to IFR data, it is expected that domestic robot sales will increase to 238,000 units in 2020, with a compound growth rate of 22% in the next three years. From a technical point of view, Huawei’s 5G technology is in an international leading position, and this technology will most likely help China’s industrial Internet of Things to take the lead in the world’s manufacturing industry.
The U.S. sanctions against China are actually beneficial to a certain extent. In the context of rapid development in the world, those who are capable are superior to those who are mediocre. China has the most complete industrial system in the world. Gree Chairman Dong Mingzhu has repeatedly emphasized that industry and manufacturing are the foundation of economic development. When the domestic intelligent manufacturing field rises, China’s real economy will usher in a period of rapid growth. When the strength of independent innovation is “forced” to a certain level, then China’s manufacturing industry will not be afraid of any sanctions and provocations.
