China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Guangdong Committee (CCPIT Guangdong) joined hands with Guangdong Sub-Administration of China Customs to organize a field research tour to Zhaoqing and Qingyuan cities of Guangdong from July 27 to 28, aiming to gain knowledge about the situation of foreign-invested enterprises and better their services.

The joint research group visited foreign-invested companies including Jianyi Mechanical Engineering (Gaoyao), Delta Aluminium Industry and Simatech （Qingyuan） Industrial, through which they gained understanding of their production lines, sales orders, online and offline market channels, raw material supply, logistics and transportation as well as their industry chain supply chains. The group delegates helped answer and offer solutions for the consultation and problems put forward by the inspected companies on site.
Huo Jincheng, representative of Zhaoqing-based Delta Aluminium Industry, said the output of the auto industry declined due to the global pandemic and economic recession, and as a result of which, the orders and export volume of aluminum alloy ingots shrank.
To cope with these challenges, the company plans to expand their domestic market and alter one of their workshops into a non-bonded workshop so that they could use it for domestic auto part production. As the officials of Zhaoqing Customs came with the Tour, the company applied for permission to alter the use of their workshop and gained approval from the Zhaoqing Customs on site.
In addition, the joint research group actively responded to companies’ consultation on the transportation and customs clearance between Guangdong and Hong Kong as well as the efficiency of custom clearance at special ports.
Chi Shuang, Vice President of CCPIT Guangdong, said the special group would forward the demands of foreign-invested companies to related government departments, and help to push for solutions.
Liang Jincheng, Inspector of Guangdong Customs, introduced a series of advantageous policies to help foreign-invested and foreign trade companies. They also encouraged enterprises to seize the RCEP opportunities and expand businesses in the Chinese market.
According to CCPIT Guangdong, they have set up a special work group to serve foreign-invested enterprises since May 27. The work group launched a 24-hour hotline and an online platform to collect related feedback from foreign-invested enterprises for more knowledge about their demands.
Fang Lixu, President of the CCPIT Guangdong, said that “CCPIT Guangdong will give full play to its role as a bridge between the local government and foreign invested-enterprises. We will attach great attention to the demands and suggestions of foreign-invested enterprises, and support their stable development in the province.”
Statistics shows that different levels of CCPIT in Guangdong have organized about 50 seminars for foreign-invested enterprises, collected demands of more than 20,000 enterprises, and carried out field research on more than 100 enterprises. They solved 112 requests from foreign-invested enterprises in terms of entry and exit issues, supply chain disruption and customs clearance overseas.
