2.Improved industrial system further enhances the resilience of China's industrial chain supply chain


As a key manufacturer, China has the supply advantage of complete industrial system and strong industrial chain resilience, which occupies an important position in the global industrial division of labor system and supply chain system.


China has the most complete industrial system in the world, with the output of more than 220 kinds of industrial products ranking first in the world. It is one of the countries with the most complete industrial categories in the world and an important participant and maintainer of the global industrial chain supply chain. In 2022, the added value of industrial enterprises above designated size increased by 3.6% year-on-year. The total industrial added value reached RMB40.2 trillion, and the manufacturing added value reached RMB33.5 trillion, ranking first in the world.


Automobile industry is an important pillar industry of national economy, with long industrial chain, wide coverage and strong driving force. China is not only the world's largest automobile producer, but also the world's largest consumer.


In response to the impact of COVID-19 last April, China set up a supply chain coordination platform for automobile industry chain, established a "red light" early warning mechanism for parts inventory of automobile enterprises, and promoted the solution of problems reflected by enterprises one by one to ensure the stable operation of the industrial chain.


Faced with the triple pressures of demand contraction, supply shock and expected weakening, the automobile industry continued to maintain a recovery growth trend. In 2022, China's automobile production and sales were 27.021 million and 26.864 million respectively, up 3.4% and 2.1% year-on-year. Among them, the annual sales volume of new energy vehicles exceeded 6.8 million vehicles, and the market share increased to 25.6%, gradually entering a stage of comprehensive market expansion.
