How important is China’s "key move" to the world?

"Since the reform and opening up, Volkswagen has always been an important member of China’s automobile industry. Based on the strategy of "in China, for China", in the future, we will make better use of local innovation forces and respond to the needs of China consumers more nimbly. " On 18th, Bered, chairman and CEO of audi ag (China), told International Sharp Review.

This year marks the 45th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up. Reform and opening up not only profoundly changed the face of China, but also brought win-win opportunities to the world. Especially in the past 10 years, China has implemented a more proactive opening-up strategy, and multinational companies like Volkswagen have gained rich returns.

Twenty-two free trade zones have been built, the construction of Hainan Free Trade Port has been accelerated, the negative list of foreign investment access has been continuously reduced, the Foreign Investment Law has been promulgated, and the "the belt and road initiative" has been built with high quality … In the past 10 years, China has been continuously opening up from a mobile type of goods and factors to an institutional type of opening up such as rules, regulations, management and standards, which proves that "opening up to the outside world is a key measure for China’s development".

So, how important is a high-level open China to the world?

What China’s open economy brings is, first of all, a solid contribution to economic growth. In the past 10 years, the proportion of China’s total economic output in the world economy has increased from 12.3% to over 18%, and its annual average contribution rate to world economic growth has exceeded 30%. China has been a major trading partner of more than 140 countries and regions. The International Monetary Fund predicts that the contribution rate of China’s economy will still exceed 30% this year. It can be seen that China has always been an important engine of world economic growth, which is particularly important at the moment when the world economic recovery is weak.

For multinational enterprises, they have enjoyed the dividend of China’s economic growth and gained extensive development space in China. In the past 10 years, the global share of China’s foreign investment has increased from 8.2% to 11.4%. The third phase of BASF Shanghai Innovation Park was completed, the third phase of Schneider Electric Shanghai Kangqiao Factory was put into production, and Danfoss Global Refrigeration R&D and Testing Center was put into use in Tianjin … Since this year, many foreign companies have invested more in China. According to a survey conducted by the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade in the third quarter of this year, nearly 90% of the foreign-funded enterprises surveyed expect their profits to be flat or improved in the next five years. Wang Na, Marketing Director of Dole China, told International Sharp Review that he was very optimistic about the open China market and deeply felt that the demand of China consumers for high-quality fruits brought Dole more development opportunities.

The opening-up of China is still the opening-up that leads the economic development trends such as greening and digitalization. As the largest exporter of goods, China’s international share will increase to 14.7% in 2022. Since the beginning of this year, China’s "three new products" (electric manned vehicles, lithium batteries and solar cells) have caused a worldwide upsurge. Recently, Nikkei News reported that thanks to the vigorous development of green technology products, China has been the largest exporter of goods in the world.

In 2022, China’s digital economy accounted for 41.5% of GDP, ranking second in the world. Some analysts pointed out that China has gained great advantages in artificial intelligence, new energy, biotechnology and so on, and it is in the first camp and even occupies a dominant position. In Southeast Asia, China enterprises helped to build the first 5G smart hospital in ASEAN; In Africa, China’s digital intelligent logistics management system helps Nigerians to make online shopping more convenient; In Latin America, China cooperates with Brazil, Ecuador and other countries with digital technology to help protect the Amazon rainforest ecosystem and other environments … The development of digital technology in China is benefiting people of all countries and injecting new momentum into world economic growth.

More importantly, China’s concept of opening to the outside world and its efforts to build an open world economy have brought a new atmosphere to the global governance system. In the past 10 years, from putting forward the initiative of "the belt and road initiative", global development initiative, global security initiative and global civilization initiative, to holding a series of international exhibitions such as China International Import Expo(CIIE) and Service Trade Fair, to signing and implementing the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement and promoting the accession to the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement and the Digital Economy Partnership Agreement, China has always insisted on discussing, building and sharing, and welcomed the world to share opportunities in China. Take the co-construction of "the belt and road initiative" as an example. In the past 10 years, it has boosted the investment scale of nearly one trillion US dollars, created 420,000 jobs for the co-construction of the country and lifted nearly 40 million people out of poverty. This is a vivid interpretation of China’s concept of global governance, which promotes the continuous improvement of the global governance system.

"The open door of China will not be closed, but will only grow bigger and bigger." The just-concluded China Central Economic Work Conference in 2023 put forward a series of new measures on "opening up to the outside world at a high level". The world has every reason to look forward to China’s "key move" and the more opportunities it will bring, from accelerating the cultivation of new kinetic energy of foreign trade, relaxing market access for services such as telecommunications and medical care, and benchmarking international high-standard economic and trade rules.

"Value Creation" Leads Workers’ Life to "Happiness Upgrade"

When I came to Tongjiang, Sichuan, a mountain stood tall and mountainous, and countless dangerous roads, deep canyons and valleys made people linger. Winding along the provincial highway 204, the house with red tiles and white walls, which is the residence of Qingyukou Reservoir Project of China Railway 11th Bureau, is located in the mountains of full of green, which is particularly eye-catching. Recently, the 11th Bureau of China Railway has built an intimate, comfortable, civilized and harmonious workers’ home in the project site.

The project has a planned construction period of 67 months, surrounded by mountains and inconvenient transportation. How to build a caring, comfortable, civilized and harmonious home for employees in the project with long construction period and poor environment, and how to "upgrade happiness" for employees’ lives through value creation actions has become the primary problem of the project.

Adding "face value" externally and refining "temperament"

"I never dreamed that I could live in an’ ecological community’ in full of green." Sun Wugang, captain of the survey team of Qingyukou Reservoir Project of China Railway 11th Bureau, said with a big smile that he had gone through more than ten projects, and this was the most beautiful place where he lived.

Walking into the project site, a lush face hit. Movable flower stands adorn every corner of the station, the walls are covered with bionic turf, and the grass is planted below, so the station is full of vitality. "Piece-by-piece" greening pattern echoes the pines and cypresses on the mountains behind it, showing the beauty of nature.

In the "mini-park" between the corridors in the dormitory area, employees can watch the game on the stone table, take a leisurely walk on the "S"-shaped aisle, or take selfies next to the newly blooming flowers … The park with an area of less than 80 square meters has become a good place for employees to relax, take a nap and have a morning exercise.

When I come to Happy Farm, the employees will dig up the soil and water the land after work, and they are very busy. Zhang Ming, secretary of the Party branch of the project, said that Happy Farm is divided into fields and managed by employees themselves, which not only allows everyone to taste fresh and delicious fruits and vegetables after hard farming, but also enhances employees’ sense of acquisition and happiness.

Building "innovation" and serving "mind-wandering"

When you visit the project staff dormitory, you will find that, unlike the traditional dormitory, a partition board is installed in the middle, which divides an original 3×6-meter standard dormitory into two 3×3-meter small single rooms.

"Don’t underestimate this board, not only not afraid to disturb my roommate, but also give me a comfortable and private space." Jiang Lan, an employee of Qingyukou Reservoir Project of China Railway 11th Bureau, praised the minor changes in the dormitory.

At the beginning of entering the site, the project team decided to rotate the standard dormitory by 90 degrees through the topographic investigation and overall layout of the project site, and split the double dormitory into a single dormitory in the form of "dividing the dormitory and sharing air conditioning". The results show that it can not only achieve the goal of single dormitory for employees, but also save the space of eight standard dormitories, further optimizing the allocation of home construction expenses.

Compared with the "innovation" of single-room dormitory, the personalized service of employees is "taking the heart". The "tree hole mailbox" hand-made by employees is particularly conspicuous. Employees can put troubles, whispers or suggestions on the project into the mailbox, which will be collected by the project office in a unified way, so as to reasonably meet their thoughts and expectations.

The "point-to-order" service in public areas can meet the needs of employees for "ordering food", "ordering books" and "penalty". What they want to eat, read and play can be served in a day. Many employees laughed and said, "This service is more timely than I bought express delivery."

In addition, the project insists on high quality, pays attention to details, advocates economy, seriously studies the problem of "urgent need" of employees, creates a "home" environment with sincere feelings, and creates a good atmosphere of civilization, harmony, unity, safety and happiness through warm-hearted activities such as collective birthdays and holiday condolences.

"Ascending" Position "Wisdom" Technology

While meeting the needs of employees’ office life, the needs of spiritual civilization cannot be left behind. Yang Liandi’s Denggao Cultural Hall is the core cultural position of the project.

Covering an area of 156 square meters, the exhibition hall is an educational position and a window for publicity, which blends the corporate climbing culture with the local red culture and fully displays the good image of the enterprise and the local cultural heritage. Relying on the exhibition hall, the project actively organizes cadres and workers in party member to carry out centralized study, party class education, theme party day activities, etc., so as to continuously improve workers’ ideological awareness and enrich their spiritual life.

The digital control center next to the exhibition hall is also one of the important "punch points" in the project station. The sand table of the reservoir dam and the large screen of information management and control are all available, and the most eye-catching one is the application display of BIM technology. The application can realize three-dimensional visual disclosure, automatic monitoring and other functions, and provide digital and informational technical support for efficient decision-making, demonstration, command, evaluation and emergency management of the project. Without going to the site, employees can remotely monitor and know the "health information" of the main structure of the dam in real time, thus realizing convenient and efficient office work.

In addition, the project is also equipped with a staff library, a spacious and comfortable activity room, a clean and tidy bathroom, a safe and intelligent pedestrian-vehicle diversion channel … complete resident facilities, and meticulous and caring services, all of which reveal the intentions and feelings of the project in the process of building a home.

In the next step, the project will continue to update and improve the construction of "home", highlight humanistic care, strengthen cultural guidance, help project production, make "home" more like home and make "home" happier.
