A number of authoritative motorcycle trade data was released and RCEP will have a far-reaching impact on Chinese motorcycle export
It is noticed that two leaders from the Department of Foreign Trade of Ministry of Commerce have issued and interpreted authoritative statements on the foreign trade situation and foreign business environment of Chinese motorcycle in 2020.
Director Xing Chuan firstly affirmed CCCM’s outstanding achievement in the field of promoting foreign trade industry, since it bucked fears of slowdown under COVID-19 epidemic and other external challenges. He also released the data of foreign trade in motorcycle industry in 2020 and the first quarter of 2021.
However, with emerging countries restoring the productivity in succession after the epidemic being controlled, added by Sino-U.S. game, the export market, including Chinese motorcycle will usher in a new challenge. This also urges enterprises to save for a rainy day, seize the window period, take root in foreign countries, attach importance to brand promotion, realize the transformation and improvement of the enterprise itself.
Hu Wei, Director of the Department of International Relations of Ministry of Commerce, elaborated on the overall situation and related trends of the import and export of Chinese motorcycle industry, especially the signing of RCEP and its impact on the export of Chinese motorcycle industry.
Director Hu Wei said that RCEP is expected to come into effect in January 2022, and he hoped that the motorcycle industry and enterprises could further understand and make good use of the policies of RCEP to further expand their external market development space.
It is reported that China and ASEAN formally concluded the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (RCEP) last year. This “circle of friends” for economic and trade in Asia-Pacific covers 30% of global population, 30% of global economy and 30% of trade volume. It is the largest free trade area in the world. A more reasonable and mutually beneficial model of trade cooperation will be established among 10+6 members. Compared with European and American markets, which are filled with fierce competition and increasing uncertainties, the ASEAN market with huge motorcycle ownership and more advantageous tariff policies is undoubtedly a better place for Chinese motorcycle enterprises to enter the world.
It is acknowledged that the current global environment is in a century of great changes, the “14th Five-Year Plan” puts forward “Science and Technology Power”, “Manufacturing Power”, incubation of world-class industries and enterprises notions to show the goal planning, which is also forcing the rapid upgrading of the national manufacturing industry, including Chinese motorcycle industry.
From the achievements of the Chamber of Commerce in 2020 and the relevant plans for 2021, we clearly feel the new development opportunities and broad future of the industry under the cloud of the epidemic, and MEGA CHINAMOTOR will continue to become a better bridge of Chinese motorcycle industry to conquer the overseas market, and help the industry and enterprises to further develop and grow.
