On top of the engineering and construction, the Company also actively expanded overseas equipment manufacturing, resources development and property development business.
1) Steadfast growth in traditional business
As the largest metallurgical engineering contractor in the world, the traditional principal business of the Company will maintain stable development as a result the factors such as optimization of steel varieties and rising demand for high-end products; energy-saving and emission reduction, technological upgrade and relocation of urban steel factories; phasing out of outdated production capacity for new capacities; and adjustment in layout of steel industry, the completion of Zhanjiang and Fangchenggang premium steel bases during the 12th Five-Year Plan period. Meanwhile, with the new targets set in respect of reducing cost and increasing profit and energy-saving and emission reduction, there will be new needs for technology upgrading for metallurgical equipment and thus more growth potential for advanced metallurgical equipments, which will benefit the Company's metallurgical equipment business.
As one of the enterprises under the central government which early started corporate transformation, the Company has been actively developing non-metallurgical engineering market at home and abroad. During the 12th Five-Year Plan period, factors such as the steadily rising urbanization rate in China increases as well as demand for construction of welfare housing projects and environmental friendly green projects will create much room for the Company's non-metallurgical engineering business to grow. In addition, with the development of the infrastructure construction market and the environmental friendly construction sector at home and abroad, the Company, as a national innovation enterprise and leveraging on the strength of industrial chain integrating science, technology and construction, is to embrace new development opportunity.
2) New Businesses start to reap
While consolidating and developing its traditional principal businesses, the Company proactively presses ahead its transformation initiative. In particular, with respect to the resources development segment which is one of the key transformation businesses, against the backdrop that the domestic demand for major metal resources such as copper, iron ore, lead, zinc and nickel keeps rising in recent year, the Company focused on development of rare metal mineral resources and overseas resources, and thus secured abundant rare resources. As such, this business will see more and more economic benefits as time elapses.
Property development, another important business undergoing transition, suffered some extent as the government tightens the commodity housing policy. However, as a leading player in the field of development and construction of subsidized housing capable of survey, design and construction, the Company stands to benefit from the boom of subsidized housing development encouraged by the government.
2012 will be a critical year for the Company's move to change economic development mode and accomplish transformation and upgrading. The Company will conduct comprehensive analysis of the current situation and existing problems, optimize resources allocation, innovate management mode, improve sophistication level, prevent different kinds of risks, build and develop the characteristics and competitiveness of the Company's principal operations so as to achieve the transformation and scientific development and make the Company stronger and more outstanding.
The company will:
1. Expand further into the market of engineering contracting, push the Company to shift from a player in the metallurgical engineering industry to a services provider of integrated solutions while vigorously tap the overseas metallurgical market so as to cement the Company's leading position in the metallurgical engineering market;
2. Enhance the Company's independent research and development capabilities to transform from an equipment manufacturer to a core equipment manufacturer and production online service providers;
3. Leverage our advantages in green, energy-saving and environment-protection technology to shift from a comprehensive property developer to a distinguished property developer at the forefront of the green buildings and environmental ecology;
4. Speed up the development of strategic new industries related to our principal business activities to create a new pillar industry as soon as possible;
5. Expedite the construction of the resources projects on hand for early commencement of production and to ensure early payback.
Lastly, develop the Company into a first-rate conglomerate with international competitiveness.
