What are the highlights, Let's have a look~
Hu kaihong: Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to the press conference held by the Information Office of the State Council today. Since the reform and opening up, a large number of outstanding entrepreneurs have emerged in China. They love the motherland, have the courage to innovate, abide by the law in good faith, have an international vision, and repay the society with practical actions. Today, we are very pleased to invite four representatives of entrepreneurs, including leaders of state-owned enterprises and private entrepreneurs, to exchange views with you on the topic of promoting entrepreneurship.
Mr. Yan zhuo'er, chairman of the board of directors of China Yongxin Building Materials Group Co., Ltd., Mr. Yan zhuo'er, chairman of the board of directors of China Yongxin Building Materials Group Co., Ltd., and Mr. Yan zhuo'er, chairman of the board of directors of China Yongxin Group Co., Ltd., are introduced. First of all, let's invite the four entrepreneurs to introduce themselves, and then answer your questions.
Zhou Yuxian: I am Zhou Yuxian, chairman of China Building Materials Group. China Building Materials Group is the only central enterprise in the field of building materials. In three sentences:
First of all, China Building Materials Group is a market-oriented enterprise with the spirit of reform 。 At present, more than 80% of the enterprises in the whole group are under mixed ownership. It is precisely because of the reform that the entire China Building Materials Group has grown at a high speed. It has been ranked 187 in the world's top 500 for ten consecutive years.
Second, China Building Materials Group is a technology-based enterprise with innovative spirit. At present, there are 30000 scientific and technological achievements in China, and there are 30000 National Science and technology awards. For example, we have high-performance carbon fiber, high-strength glass fiber, excellent and advanced wind turbine blades, the world's thinnest 0.03mm flexible glass, and the world's highest conversion copper indium gallium selenium power generation glass.
In the third sentence, China Building Materials Group is an international company operating in the world. There are 172 companies in the world, with a global market share of 65% in cement and glass engineering construction. It should be said that in the building materials industry, they are the pioneers participating in the "belt and road" construction. thank you!
The first is innovation and the second is responsibility
CCTV reporter: I can see that there are both state-owned enterprise leaders and private enterprise entrepreneurs. You are in different industries, and you certainly have different business management concepts. As an excellent representative of entrepreneurs, how do you view entrepreneurship? What spiritual qualities do you think a good entrepreneur should possess? thank you! 、
Zhou Yuxian: just now, chairman Ning and Chairman Liu both talked about their own views, and I also talked about some experience based on the situation of China Building Materials Group. Entrepreneurs themselves are very important subjects in social and economic activities, and entrepreneurship is also valuable social wealth. We mentioned that we should activate the vitality of market subjects. In fact, to some extent or in essence, it is to stimulate the vitality of entrepreneurs. In my own investment business for more than 20 years, I have learned that when we are looking for investment projects, capital is important, but people are more important. For the same project, if different people manage and operate, there will be a huge gap. At present, in such a severe and complex situation at home and abroad, all enterprises need to innovate and develop and need to break through. In this process, it is particularly important to carry forward the entrepreneurship.
If we talk about the quality of entrepreneurs, I think two points are very important. The first is innovation. Innovation itself is the core element of entrepreneurship, and innovation is also the source power of enterprise development. China building materials for so many years a large number of "neck" innovation achievements, also proved this point. Chinese building materials has broken through high-performance carbon fiber, high-strength glass fiber, and the thinnest flexible glass of 0.03 mm in China. This thickness is 1 / 3 of the thickness of A4 paper on hand. You know that glass is brittle, but this glass is completely flexible. It can be used on the folding screen of mobile phones. The folding radius of 1.5 mm can be folded for 200000 times continuously, It is the entrepreneurs with innovative spirit who can achieve such achievements. It is also because of the leaders of entrepreneurs that they can make these achievements succeed one by one. They can really break through the "neck sticking" link and fill in the gap in China.
Of course, innovation is not only technological innovation and technological innovation, but also management innovation, institutional innovation and business model innovation. In these aspects, China Building Materials Group has also done some practice. In the past ten years, nearly 1000 private enterprises have been reorganized and integrated, so the proportion of China Building Materials Group's mixed ownership enterprises has reached more than 80%. In fact, through these innovative cooperation, we also actively invite private entrepreneurs to join our team to jointly develop our business and truly bring the state-owned into full play Because of the advantages of enterprises and private enterprises, China Building Materials Group has made great achievements in recent years.
The second element is responsibility. Combined with the situation of China Building Materials Group, as a central enterprise, it should undertake not only economic responsibility, but also social responsibility, as well as national responsibility. From the perspective of economic responsibility, from January to July this year, both the total profit and the net profit have double-digit growth compared with the same period last year. In terms of social responsibility, at the first time of the outbreak of the epidemic in the first half of this year, I also discussed with Mr. Yan. They also built shelter hospitals. However, the materials of shelter hospitals, including the materials of Leishen mountain and Huoshen mountain, were sent to the hospitals by China Building Materials group in the first time after all difficulties, providing materials for 83 hospitals in 38 cities. At the same time, we have also provided more than ten kinds of high-tech materials to be used in the fight against epidemic situation and vaccine development. In the process, a number of volunteers have emerged. These are also a microcosm of our social responsibility. From the perspective of national responsibility, we should provide strong technical support for the technology and links of "neck clamping". So on the whole, the first is innovation and the second is responsibility. thank you!
The trend of globalization will not be reversed
Hong Kong South China Morning Post: at present, the international situation is very complex and changeable. The United States has repeatedly suppressed and blocked Chinese enterprises during this period. I wonder what the four people think of the risks to the enterprises in the future. Will they take some measures to deal with such a challenge from the international situation? thank you.
Zhou Yuxian: as chairman Liu said just now, I agree with him very much. I would like to add that the general trend of globalization will not be reversed. As Chinese building materials, we have strong confidence and will actively participate in the process of globalization. China Building Materials Group is the world's leader in basic building materials, especially in the system integration technology of cement and glass. Our market share in the design, construction and system integration of overseas cement plants and glass plants is more than 65%. So we sometimes joke that we use the high-tech, high-standard and high-environmental system integration technology of Chinese building materials to improve the existing cement and glass factories in developing countries and developed countries, and also use our technology to build cement and glass factories they need in developing countries, especially in the "belt and road" countries. Therefore, in this sense, we have the advantages of technology and system integration, which can bring employment and tax revenue to the local society, local enterprises and local people, as well as cleaner and environmentally friendly cement and glass factories. In this sense, the global market allocation will not be reversed, which is my first point.
Second, China's building materials have some manufacturing technology, and they are also very competitive in the world. For example, we have invested in the glass fiber plant in the United States, which has been put into production in May 2019. Although the epidemic situation in the United States has some impact on us, it is still good from the current business situation. Therefore, we firmly believe that as long as our technology and products are competitive, the overall trend of internationalization will not be reversed. thank you.
Adhere to the concept of green development and open to the public
China News Agency reporter: I have a question. Chairman Zhou, green development and environmental protection have become a global consensus. As the person in charge of the central enterprise of building materials, what do you think of green development? thank you.
Zhou Yuxian: it's a very good question, and it's very clever. Green development itself is the development concept of our group. Among our three main businesses, the first major business is basic building materials, the second is new materials, and the third is engineering and technical services. We put forward the concept of "making good use of resources and serving construction", which is also to practice the development concept of "green water and green mountains are golden mountains and silver mountains". What happened? A week ago, we opened 37 enterprises to the public in 28 cities, most of which are cement enterprises. At ordinary times, people think that cement enterprises will have dust, gas and smell. But in fact, through our 20-30 years of practice, innovation and improvement, the emission level of cement enterprises is far lower than the current national emission standards. Whether it is gas or dust, a large number of enterprises have entered the category of ultra-low emission. We can see that many of our cement enterprises are cement plants on the grassland, cement plants in the forest and garden like water Mud factory. During the period when 37 enterprises were opened to the public last week, many local TV stations, local media and local public declared to visit, and the effect was very good. Through such opening-up, we also convey an idea. We should firmly believe in our own development mode, firmly believe in our own cultural concept, and convey that we can build a resource-saving and environment-friendly enterprise, and truly create value for the society, and at the same time, protect the environment and protect the blue sky.
From asset management to capital management to maintain and increase the value of state owned capital
First finance and economics reporter: May I ask chairman Zhou Yuxian, the three-year action of state-owned enterprise reform has been formally implemented this year. As a pilot project of state-owned capital investment company, what new arrangements and breakthroughs will be made in the reform of state-owned enterprises such as mixed reform, reorganization and integration? thank you.
Zhou Yuxian: there are many reports on the three-year action plan in the media, but in fact, we have not received any formal documents. However, from our own point of view, as central enterprises, we are all striving to create world-class enterprises with global competitiveness. I think this should also be an important goal in the three-year action plan. China building materials is a pilot project of state-owned capital investment companies. I think it is a very important issue that we are also doing now, that is, how to really change from asset management to capital management, how to implement the securitization and fluidization of state-owned assets through the management of equity, to make the state-owned capital advance and retreat through the flow, and further optimize the layout and capital of our entire industry Through the standard governance structure to exercise the investor's responsibility, can really let the state-owned capital realize the appreciation and maintenance of value. Therefore, China Building Materials Group will promote the pilot projects of state-owned capital investment companies from these aspects and carry out various kinds of work. thank you!
Do one's own business well in three main businesses and implement Entrepreneurship
Worker's Daily: not long ago, General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that if entrepreneurs want to lead enterprises to overcome the current difficulties, they should constantly improve themselves in patriotism, innovation, integrity, social responsibility and international vision. Could you please talk about how to give full play to the talents of entrepreneurs in the face of the current complex situation and difficulties God, leading enterprises to achieve greater development? What kind of profound experience and experience can I share with you? thank you.
Zhou Yuxian: I was also very lucky to attend the "7.21" entrepreneur forum with Chairman Ning. Under the current situation, as the person in charge of central enterprises, the most important thing is to do their own things. That's what Chairman Liu said at the end of the meeting. Only by doing our own things well, can we truly implement the enterpriser's spirit of innovation and responsibility. China Building Materials Group has three main businesses. This year, we can guarantee to complete the business performance assigned by shareholders and SASAC. Besides, we can make our first plate of basic building materials more environmentally friendly and greener, and contribute to the national environmental protection cause and the global blue sky.
Our second plate is new materials, which enables us to continuously innovate some new materials to solve the "neck sticking" link of the country, so that these new materials can be truly mass produced, can be truly provided to the general public, and can enter thousands of households.
Our third sector of engineering and technical services, the main thinking is that we can use the cement technology and glass technology of China building materials, update and upgrade the global factories with low environmental protection and poor operation quality, and build some projects for the countries that need our design, construction and construction on the belt and road initiative. This is the task of our three main businesses. At present, if suggestions are made:
First, as entrepreneurs, we should create a good environment for innovation. Because innovation itself is the core of entrepreneurship, our whole country, including our central enterprises, needs to adhere to innovation for a long time, so as to truly achieve domestic and global leadership. A good allocation of resources and environment is not enough for the allocation of resources and human resources in one year. Moreover, innovation itself often has a relatively high risk. As an entrepreneur, on the premise of controlling risks, how to encourage innovation and how to achieve the unity of strategic rationality and economic rationality is very important. For example, our carbon fiber began to invest in R & D 10 years ago. Its strength started from T200 and T300, and has broken through T700, T800 and T1000 in recent years. It has also won the first prize of national science and technology progress award, which can provide high-performance carbon fiber for the National Aviation Industry. Without the psychological preparation and practical support for a sword sharpening for ten years, such achievements would not have been achieved. As an entrepreneur, we should create a good environment for innovation.
Second, as entrepreneurs, we should actively advocate the incentive mechanism conducive to reform. In particular, central enterprises need to attach great importance to this aspect and actively promote it. In the process of restructuring, many of our private enterprises have been able to fully develop their value-added enterprises through the combination of private enterprises and private enterprises. Recently, the group has introduced a series of medium and long-term incentive and restraint mechanisms, which aims to stimulate the vitality and enthusiasm of scientific and technological personnel, especially those in the front line. At the same time, in addition to economic incentives, we also need spiritual incentives. Academician Peng Shou, the inventor of the 0.03mm ultra-thin flexible glass, was elected as an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering in 2019 as a deputy to the 12th and 13th National People's Congress. We should set up a set of mechanism suitable for scientists and technicians to break out their enthusiasm and creativity through spiritual and material incentives.
Third, we should base ourselves on the world and have an international vision, so as to truly realize the domestic and international dual circulation. I used to invest for a long time. In my own experience, whether at home or abroad, it is very important for us to think about investment, merger and reorganization. Besides economic benefits, it is also important to consider what we can provide and contribute to the local government, local society and local people. For example, China building materials has invested in the construction of a glass fiber production base with an annual output of 200000 tons in Egypt, making Egypt the fifth largest glass fiber producer in the world. At the same time, we have recruited 1800 local employees to realize the employment of the people. More importantly, we have opened the industrial chain of mineral resource processing and application in the front. In recent years, the local government has also provided a good return of RMB 500 million. Only with the local government, the local society, the local people live in harmony, we can realize the value maintenance and appreciation of capital in the process. thank you!
