"The Belt and Road" brings long-term benefits to the building decoration industry

Since the new US President Trump took office, he has focused on promoting the return of manufacturing to the United States, and the tendency of trade protectionism has become more and more obvious. We believe that the US, as the world's largest economy, its trade policy has a huge impact on the global economy, and its drive to rise in trade protectionism may force countries that previously relied on international trade to drive economic growth to return to the country, and the global infrastructure boom may advent.

The countries along the “Belt and Road” are mainly developing countries, and the demand for infrastructure construction is huge, which has laid a good international environment for domestic construction companies to “go global” and continue to increase infrastructure cooperation with countries along the route.

According to the spokesperson of the Ministry of Commerce, in the future construction of the "Belt and Road", market-oriented operation will be the main focus, and enterprises will play the main role in project construction. We believe that the marketization of the “Belt and Road” will bring substantial positive benefits to the performance of participating companies.

For the building decoration industry, which is in the downstream of the infrastructure industry, with the decline of domestic fixed asset investment, the problem of overcapacity in my country's construction industry is becoming more and more serious, and the competition in the domestic decoration industry is becoming more and more intensified. "Going out" is regarded as the development of decoration enterprises. A major breakthrough, and the "Belt and Road" will detonate the long-term benefits of the industry.

While the public opinion is generally praised, there are also people who wonder: what benefits does China have in building the "Belt and Road" with so much effort? What dividends does the construction industry have? In fact, this "Project of the Century" can not only bring tangible benefits to China The benefits of being here will benefit the countries along the route and the world even more. It’s still the same saying, if you want to get rich, build roads first!

The Joint Communiqué of the Roundtable Summit of the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation pointed out in terms of infrastructure:

Promote pragmatic cooperation in the fields of roads, railways, ports, maritime and nuclear transportation, aviation, energy pipelines, electricity, submarine cables, optical fibers, telecommunications, information and communication technology, etc. Model comprehensive corridors and international backbone corridors, and gradually build an international infrastructure network.

Maximize the synergy of infrastructure planning and construction by drawing on relevant international standards and, if necessary, unifying planning systems and technical standards; fostering a favorable and predictable environment for private capital investment in infrastructure; The field of efficiency promotes public-private partnerships; international financial institutions are welcome to strengthen their support and investment in infrastructure development.

It can be said that according to the joint communiqué of the Roundtable Summit of the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation released on the 15th, all parties have reached 14 cooperation measures. According to these measures, they will work together to promote the construction of the Belt and Road Initiative and strengthen the connection of the interconnection initiatives. This has provided new opportunities and injected new impetus to international cooperation, helping to promote an open, inclusive and inclusive globalization.

Building decoration enterprises should "go out", "go in" and "go up"

Integrating into the "Belt and Road" construction, Chinese building decoration enterprises should be more active in "going out", "going in" and "going up". Focus on the following aspects:

First, strengthen the soft power of the company and take the lead in international operation management and brand building. In terms of international operation and management, the Company has improved its transnational index and made substantial breakthroughs in global layout, integration of global resources, and creation of a global industrial chain. At the same time, it is necessary to vigorously implement the "One Belt, One Road" brand strategy and accurately grasp the brand positioning. While strengthening independent innovation, we always pursue high quality. Let soft power such as brand and quality help Chinese enterprises win the hearts and minds of the people and the market.

Second, we must attach importance to professional service industries such as law, media, finance, accounting, design, and consulting. Professional service industry is an important part of modern service industry. Judging from the experience of developed western countries, the professional service industry not only directly creates economic value, but is also conducive to promoting economic restructuring and industrial optimization and upgrading, helping these countries to firmly grasp the institutional voice in global economic governance. Chinese enterprises should make up for the shortage of talents in the professional service industry, and should truly recognize the value of the professional service industry in concept.

Third, it is necessary to promote the coordination and linkage between state-owned enterprises and private enterprises. In the construction of the "Belt and Road", state-owned enterprises are the main force, and private enterprises are the new force. The two are indispensable and require coordinated development. It should be noted that the construction of the "Belt and Road" requires the rise of Chinese enterprises in groups, rather than the development of groups of three or two or three or five. Chinese enterprises should avoid such bad behavior as crowding out, slandering, and lowering prices, and jointly build the golden signboard of "Chinese enterprises".

In the process of "One Belt, One Road" construction, Chinese building decoration enterprises must not only "convincing people with reason", but also "convincing people with benefits" and "convincing people with examples", and effectively promote the implementation of key projects and infrastructure.
