On March 11, Nissan (China) Investment Co., Ltd. held a celebration for the 10th anniversary of parts export in Shanghai. Dong Yang, executive vice president of the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, attended the ceremony.
At present, Nissan (China) has become the top enterprise in the export of auto parts in China. Last year, it purchased and exported various auto parts from the Chinese mainland for more than 2 billion US dollars. Over the past 30 years of reform and opening up, the world's major automobile manufacturers have entered China. When these companies enter China, they mainly do two things. One is to form a joint venture with a Chinese vehicle manufacturer to produce and sell vehicle products, and the other is to purchase Chinese auto parts to supply their own vehicle production outside China.
The main reason is that foreign automakers make much more money than their Chinese partners by using their own technology, products, and management advantages in the process of joint ventures with China. This is a fact. However, if we consider the taxes and fees paid to the government by these vehicle joint ventures, the employment opportunities they provide, and the automobile products they produce, the market is extremely rich. Chinese consumers can have more choices than consumers in any country in the world. Benefited a lot.
No one criticizes, but the whole society does not pay enough attention. Dong Yang believes that this is a win-win situation. On the one hand, purchasing high-quality and low-cost components produced in China can improve the global product competitiveness of these large foreign vehicle companies. On the other hand, it has also objectively developed and strengthened China's auto parts industry.
In addition, Dong Yang pointed out that there are two points worth thinking about:
One is what Xilin, the general manager of Nissan (China), said: In some respects, China's auto parts production capacity has surpassed that of Japan. For example, ordering a new model of auto parts takes only a week in China but a month in Japan. It can be seen that while we generally lament that China's auto industry is large but not strong, and the foundation of China's auto parts industry is weak, China's auto parts industry has made great progress, so there is no need to belittle ourselves.
The second is that the direction of China's auto parts industry lies in global support. Dong Yang believes that excellent auto parts companies are all companies that go abroad and go global, such as Wanxiang, Dicastal, Neusoft, and Yapu, as well as Ningde New Era and Jingjin Motor in the field of new energy vehicles. I hope that our auto parts companies will not indulge in complaints about foreign brand parts occupying the Chinese market, complaining that the government does not protect them, and complaining that Chinese brand auto companies do not support Chinese auto parts, but should work hard to improve their competitiveness. The ultimate goal is Form international competitiveness. This should be one of the goals of supply-side reform.
