good swimmers must fight the wind and waves to show their skills

since this year, in the face of the escalating Sino US economic and trade frictions and the increasing uncertainty of the external environment, how to actively deal with risks and challenges has become a must answer for many foreign trade enterprises

in recent interviews, the reporter found that since this year, foreign trade has maintained balanced growth, and many enterprises have responded calmly in the face of storms and waves, constantly exploring new ideas for development in terms of hard training, optimizing layout and embracing openness

(subhead) the growth of foreign trade has been steady

enterprises are the barometer of economic operation

in Shandong Boke Biological Industry Co., Ltd., the staff are busy in the R & D and production area of medical device shell and in vitro diagnostic reagent with an area of more than 2000 square meters. "In the first half of the year, our product sales remained stable, and economic and trade frictions did not have much impact on enterprises." Said Gan Yiwu, chairman of Shandong Boke Biological Industry Co., Ltd

Zhejiang dablin Valve Co., Ltd., a private enterprise along the eastern coast, also handed over a brilliant foreign trade report card: the export revenue in the first seven months of this year was US $7.45 million, an increase of 24.17% compared with the same period last year

<holding the two cards of independent brand and diversified market, we are confident in dealing with external challenges."the uncertainty of the external environment has not brought much concern to lin hailin, chairman of dablin. he is still optimistic about the performance of the enterprise this year: it is expected that the export will reach us $13 million in 2018, accounting for 67% of the sales revenue

the reporter visited enterprises in the central and western regions, and many enterprises increased overseas trade against the trend. In Hunan, an important manufacturing city in Central China, the "locomotive" produced by CRRC Zhuzhou Machinery Co., Ltd. was exported to Germany for the first time. In the first half of this year, the import and export growth reached 52.4%, and the import and export volume of Zoomlion Heavy Industry increased by 49.8% year-on-year...

the vitality of enterprises injected surging impetus into the development of foreign trade: in the first seven months of this year, the total import and export value of China's goods trade was 16.72 trillion yuan, an increase of 8.6% year-on-year, Import and export achieved rapid growth. The import and export to the EU, the United States, Japan and other countries increased, especially to the countries along the "the Belt and Road", which was 2.7 percentage points higher than the overall national growth rate

the data once again confirm that China's foreign trade enterprises continue to improve their internal skills from "scale expansion" to "quality and efficiency improvement". Even in the face of complex and changeable international trade situation, the growth trend of foreign trade is still steady

(subhead) explore new ideas to break the situation with changes

survival in change is a state

the external environment is changeable, but the growth performance is extraordinary. Behind the steady growth of foreign trade is the effective response to a series of changes in enterprise technology, market and industrial chain

-- technological change

the reporter found that in the face of the United States imposing tariffs on Chinese products exported to the United States, some Chinese enterprises were not panic. Because they were excellent products, American customers could not refuse them, and were even willing to take the initiative to help digest the cost rise caused by tariffs

Shandong Weifang Haomai group, which focuses on the machinery manufacturing industry, has been established for 23 years, with an annual compound growth rate of 50%. Technological innovation and R & D have been accelerating. Now it has grown into a world champion in tire mold and valve core industries. Its export tire molds and gas turbines are included in the list of tariffs imposed by the United States on China this time. "After levying 25% tariff, American customers are willing to pay 20% more tariff, and we bear 5%, which has limited impact on enterprises." Group Chairman Zhang Gongyun said

- changes in the market

facing the changeable market situation, developing diversified markets is a magic weapon for many enterprises to gain a firm foothold

the person in charge of a joint venture along the southeast coast of China told reporters that the auto parts produced by the company are on the US $34 billion commodity tax list for China. "On the one hand, we will strengthen the development of the domestic market and plan to increase the sales of domestic products by 30% every year from this year. At the same time, we will actively explore markets outside the United States and expand exports to neighboring countries."

in fact, diversified market layout is not the temporary intention of enterprises to deal with risks. Many enterprises are ready to resist risks from the beginning by targeting the global market. "Putting all our eggs in one basket is too risky. Our business covers 112 countries and regions around the world, and the unification of product standards enables us to diversify our customers around the world." Lin Hailin said

- changes in the industrial chain

increasing R & D efforts and moving towards the middle and high-end of the industrial chain has become a response to the layout of many enterprises in advance. As early as a few years ago, Haomai group began to march into the field of advanced chemical equipment and marine oil and gas equipment on the basis of high-end parts processing and manufacturing. The greater development space contained in the new field makes the enterprise full of confidence in the future development

Mingshuo computer (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. achieved import and export of more than US $8 billion in the first half of the year, with a year-on-year increase of more than 25%. Xie Jun, the company's customs manager, said that the company has extended the industrial chain by increasing R & D and design links to maintain its international market share in the fields of computers, network broadband, multimedia terminals and smart phones

(subheading) meet challenges with a more open attitude

it is normal to go through both wind and rain

looking outward, after the impact of external risks such as the financial crisis, China's foreign trade enterprises, especially private enterprises, have gradually developed the ability to deal with risks, strengthen R & D and innovation, cultivate independent brands and disperse the export market... Like a rainbow after the rain, they continue to forge and grow through tests and break through difficulties

in the interview, the reporter learned that some small and medium-sized enterprises are facing a severe export situation and even the risk of closing down because of their weak product competitiveness and single market. Although some enterprises have not yet been affected by trade frictions, they are also ready to deal with the possible impact of a larger round of tariffs imposed by the United States

<span bdsfid="117"class="bjh-p> the external environment is like a day in March, which changes when you say it. The best way to deal with the change is to make yourself bigger and stronger, do a good job of independent brand strategy, and make your products irreplaceable." Lin Hailin said

after adjustment in recent years, China's economic growth model has been continuously optimized, from investment and export to consumption, and its dependence on foreign trade has been continuously reduced. At present, it has dropped to 33%, lower than the world average of 42%

developing the domestic market does not mean reducing the connection with the external market. Heads of several enterprises said that in response to the changing external environment, they should be more open-minded, actively participate in the construction of the "the Belt and Road", actively expand economic and trade ties with other countries and regions, and better integrate into the global production and division of labor system

<span bdsfid="123"class="bjh-p> internationalization is the only way for enterprises to become bigger and stronger in the future. In the next three years, we will plan to establish offices in major countries along the" the Belt and Road "and increase investment in the U.S. market." Gan Yiwu said.
