Why has this event come to Deyang?

Deyang’s Advantages in Manufacturing + Cooperation Package

Why was Dialogue between Made in China 2025 and German Industry 4.0 held in Deyang? According to Lei Xiaoguang, Deputy Director of Deyang Commerce Bureau, the governments of China and Germany issued a joint declaration in 2014 saying that the two countries would promote political cooperation of equal and mutual benefits win-win and sustainable economic and financial cooperation, innovative cooperation that will create a shared future, and cultural and educational cooperation that facilitates communication and mutual learning.  In October 2015, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and German Chancellor Angela Merkel had a meeting in Beijing where they agreed on continuing to materialize the consensus reached in the previous round of bilateral governmental consultation, build mutual trust, enhance cooperation in all areas, and upgrade the cooperative relationship between the two countries to a new level. Premier Li Keqiang proposed to build a China-Germany industrial cooperation platform and gave the instruction that the platform should be located in Sichuan Province.

  Both the CPC provincial committee and the provincial government of Sichuan attached great importance to this issue and designated Sichuan Provincial Department of Commerce as the leading organization to create a China-Germany industrial cooperation promotion mechanism with the center in Chengdu and supported by the two cities of Deyang and Mianyang. According to such arrangements, Deyang made active efforts and soon developed a plan to promote and facilitate industrial cooperation between the two countries. A dedicated leadership group was established with lower-level units and Secretary of the CPC Deyang Committee and Mayor of Deyang served as group heads. It was then made clear that Deyang Economic Development Zone and Deyang High-tech Industrial Park were designated as the two areas to host relevant projects. Priority was given to a smart manufacturing base and a vocational education base and the cooperation will also involve manufacturing, services, new urbanization, and some other fields.

Deyang has a major cluster of heavy equipment manufacturers that is influential across China and even the world. Currently, it produces over 60% of nuclear power generation equipment, over 40% of hydropower units, over 30% of thermal power generators and turbines, 50% of large steel rolling equipment and large castings and forgings for power plants, and 20% of castings and forging for ships in China. Also, it has been the top manufacturer of power generation equipment in the world and the top oil drill exporter of China for many years.

Actually, Deyang has saw cooperation projects with many German companies long ago and they have been thriving over the years. According to Lei Xiaoguang, Deyang is a sister city of Siegen-Wittgenstein of Germany. And its cooperation with the industrial sector in Germany has a long history, wide coverage, and diverse models. Besides purchasing equipment technology from Germany and providing products, the two sides also cooperate on manufacturing and technology. Over 30 companies in Deyang have established ties with German partners, including Dongfang Turbine, Dongfang Electric Machinery, Erzhong, Honghua, Dongfang Furnace, Guanghan Tiancheng Stainless Steel, Guanghan Saint-Gobain, Zhongjiang Boyi Ceramics, Litong Printing Machinery, Dongfang Ahaifa, Mianzhu Jiannanchun, Siyuan Heavy Industry, Shifang Tomorrow Astronautics, Ito-Sin, Sichuan Glass Fiber, Guanghan Hanzhou Electrics, Mianzhu Xinkun Machinery, and Guanghan Sinozyme Pharmaceuticals. In addition, ongoing cooperation projects with Germany involve the Stainless Steel Industrial Park, industrial technical consulting, creative industry, emergency industry, vocational education, and the Hanover Industrial Exhibition.

In the future, taking the opportunity of building the China-Germany Industrial Innovation Cooperation Platform (Park), Deyang will seek breakthroughs in smart manufacturing and vocational education, take manufacturing, services and new urbanization as the priorities, strive for comprehensive cooperation between German industry 4.0 and Made in China 2025, promote M&A between enterprises and other organizations of the two countries, and pursue capacity, technological, brand, intelligence, and financial cooperation of innovative models, so as to promote the deepened opening up and innovation of the Chengdu-Deyang-Mianyang pilot area for innovative reforms, create and improve a bidirectional innovation cooperation mechanism, and do everything we can to push forward the cooperation between China and Germany.

Deyang and Germany in the Future

Cooperation on Industrial Robots

During the 13th Five-year Plan period, Deyang will establish a national demonstration base for innovative development of advanced equipment manufacturing. What are the highlights in the industrial cooperation between Deyang and Germany in the future? According to Deyang Commission of Economy and Information Technology, in the future, cooperation between Deyang and Germany will focus on smart manufacturing, industrial robots, and some other fields. Potential projects include a joint test center with Siemens, a practical training base with Kuka, and building Deyang into a branch venue of the Hanover Industrial Exhibition.

  Currently, efforts are being made to make plan for substituting manpower with robots so as to encourage enterprises to use industrial robots. We are confident that this policy will build the confidence of German investors in Deyang. Also, the two sides will launch capital cooperation in addition to product cooperation projects. Early this year ChemChina completed an M&A case with KraussMaffei, a German giant in rubber and plastic machinery. Bluestar Machinery in Deyang is a subsidiary of ChemChina and may have a chance to reorganize its chemical machinery business and contribute to the transformation and upgrading of the equipment manufacturing industry in Deyang.
