2019 37th Issue: Policy Recommendations for Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure - 2019-11-19
[Abstract]In 2015, the National Development and Reform Commission issued the “Guidelines for the Development of Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure (2015-2020)”, which proposed that China’s new energy vehicles are expected to reach 5 million and charging facilities can reach 4.8 million during the 13th “Five-Year Plan” period. At the New Energy Industry Development Symposium held in Shaanxi on July 6, 2016, Ma Kai, former Vice Premier of China proposed that the construction of charging infrastructure is the bottleneck of the development of new energy vehicles. Thus, we should strengthen the construction of charging facilities, improve policy for charging facilities development, and push forward policy implementation. In the past three years, China’s charging facilities industry has developed rapidly, policy and system have been improved, electricity access and service pricing have been gradually standardized, and substantial progress has been made in facilities interconnection. However, some problems remain unresolved, such as non-standardized charging facilities, insufficient integration of industrial resources, and difficulties in making profitability.
2019 36th Issue: 5G Network Drives Breakthroughs in High-end Equipment and Parts - 2019-11-15
[Abstract]The construction of the 5G network is an important part for driving breakthroughs in the production of high-end equipment and components. China’s telecommunication operators have actively carried out 5G construction since the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued the 5G license on June 6, 2019. As of September 2019, the three major operators have built 86,000 5G base stations, and the number is expected to reach 130,000 by the end of 2019. On October 31, the three major operators have officially launched the commercial use of 5G in 50 cities in China. In 2020, 5G services will be launched in all prefecture-level cities. Despite all the rapid development, the construction of the 5G has many obstacles and we need to come up with effective policies and measures to ensure sustainable advancement of the 5G network construction.
2019 35th Issue: Building a New Trade Innovation Center in Huangpu to Promote the Construction of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area - 2019-11-14
[Abstract]In October 2018, General-Secretary of China’s Community Party Xi Jinping proposed “new vitality of the old city (Guangzhou)” during his visit to Guangdong province. The just-concluded Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee puts forward the new requirement of building a high-level economic opening-up. Building a new trade innovation center combining “trade + manufacturing”, “trade + service” and “trade + innovation” in the Huangpu Port Area (about 83 square kilometers) is not only an attempt to form a new pattern of comprehensive opening-up in the new era, but also a new practice to promote high-quality development in Guangzhou. The rising of Nansha Port, Shenzhen Port and other ports made it very difficult for Huangpu port to maintain its leading position. In order to give full play to the comprehensive advantages of Huangpu Port, Huangpu Port should upgrade itself into a new trade and innovation center that connects Hong Kong and Macau as well the “Belt and Road”. This will bring new vitality to old cities, serve the development of Hong Kong and Macau and promote the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
2019 34th: Increasing Platforms for Promoting Opening-up in Western China - 2019-11-08
[Abstract]Recently, a research team from CCIEE conducted a fact-finding trip to Urumqi, Xinjiang, investigating how to promote high-level opening-up in western China during the 14th Five-Year Plan period. The research team visited Urumqi Economic and Technological Development Zone, Urumqi International Land Port Zone and Urumqi Comprehensive Bonded Zone and other platforms for opening-up.
2019 33rd: Breaking the Bottleneck of 5G Development - 2019-10-30
[Abstract]The Fifth-generation mobile communications (5G) has become the focus of great powers to enhance their overall national strength and compete for international control. Against the background of the Sino-US trade frictions, the United States maliciously suppressed China’s ZTE, Huawei and other 5G companies, and used the “Five Eyes” intelligence alliance to encircle Chinese enterprises with the intention to seize the commanding heights of 5G development. During its fact-finding trips to Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and other places, the research team of CCIEE found that the development of the 5G industry faces many bottlenecks. Further research is needed to fully understand the development strategy of the United States, the European Union, South Korea, and Japan in the 5G field to ensure that China’s 5G industry maintains its leading advantage.
