conomic Daily: The average annual growth of investment exceeds 20%, and central enterprises increase their layout of emerging industries
"We should have a deep understanding of the mission and task of state-owned central enterprises in the new era and new journey, go all out to develop strategic emerging industries, effectively improve the core competitiveness of enterprises, enhance core functions, actively serve the major national strategies, and effectively play the role of scientific and technological innovation, industrial control, and security support in building a modern industrial system and building a Dual circulation." At the recently held deployment meeting for central enterprises to accelerate the development of strategic emerging industries, Zhang Yuzhuo, Secretary and Director of the Party Committee of the State owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council, and Leader of the Special Leading Group for Central Enterprises to Accelerate the Development of Strategic Emerging Industries, stated.
Strategic emerging industries represent the direction of a new round of technological revolution and industrial transformation, and are also key areas for the country to cultivate new driving forces for development and win new competitive advantages in the future.
In recent years, central enterprises have continuously increased their layout of emerging industries. The "Report on High Quality Development of Central Enterprises (2022)" shows that central enterprises have played the role of state-owned enterprise structural adjustment funds and continued to increase investment in emerging industries. The investment volume has increased from 690 billion yuan in 2017 to 1.3 trillion yuan in 2021, with an average annual growth of over 20%. The investment completion in fields such as new generation information technology, new energy, and high-end equipment manufacturing accounts for 80% of all strategic emerging industry investments. Nearly 70 central enterprises and more than 700 subsidiaries have expanded their layout in the field of New Infrastructure, with an investment of more than 400 billion yuan in 2021.
In addition, the construction of collaborative development platforms has accelerated. State owned central enterprises promote the construction of a number of digital innovation platforms such as new energy vehicles, Beidou, e-commerce and blockchain, create collaborative innovation platforms such as logistics Big data and marine engineering equipment, create autonomous and controllable Tianyi Cloud, and play a leading role in the industry.
While seeing the achievements, we should also be soberly aware that, from the current situation, the revenue share of forward-looking strategic emerging industries of state-owned Strategic foresight is not high, which is not commensurate with the responsibility of state-owned enterprises. On May 15th, the State owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council held an on-site promotion meeting for the expansion and deepening of the "Science and Technology Reform Action" in Guangzhou, releasing a strong signal: greater efforts will be made to create forward-looking strategic emerging industries, becoming a prominent focus of the next step of the "Science and Technology Reform Action".
Many science and technology reform enterprises are located in strategic emerging industries. The State owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) requires anchoring the future direction of technological development, establishing a sound mechanism for integrating innovative resources, increasing the specialization and integration of industrial and scientific research resources, coordinating national needs, industry trends, and enterprise capabilities, actively opening up new industrial tracks, and enhancing industry leadership.
Within less than 10 days, the State owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council held a deployment meeting for central enterprises to accelerate the development of strategic emerging industries. This meeting emphasized that central enterprises should continuously make new substantive breakthroughs in optimizing their industrial layout by developing strategic emerging industries. They should adhere to a more focused strategy, more flexible methods, and more open perspectives, timely grasp the new forms and models of industrial evolution and development, create world-class products, services, and brands, accelerate the cultivation of "specialized, refined, and innovative" and "single champion" enterprises, and form a systematic layout as soon as possible.
The meeting emphasized the need to continuously make new substantive breakthroughs in key core technologies, strengthen the position of enterprises as the main body of innovation, deploy innovation chains around the industrial chain, and increase technology investment
