The world today is undergoing major changes unseen in a century. 2020 is an extremely extraordinary year. The impact and impact of the epidemic is extremely far-reaching. my country’s GDP in the first quarter of 2020 set the largest decline in history. However, thanks to the concerted efforts of Chinese compatriots, the domestic epidemic has been brought under control in a short period of time, the economic recovery has continued to improve, and China has become the only country with positive growth among the major economies in the world. Under the epidemic situation, new changes have taken place in the industry structure of the metal packaging industry. The product power, brand power, and supply chain competition thresholds of leading companies have further improved, and the entire industry has shown a new pattern of healthier and more sustainable development.

In the past few years, especially in 2019 and 2020, the Sino-US trade war and the new crown epidemic have brought unprecedented challenges to the metal packaging industry and even my country’s economic development. Chinese metal packaging companies are actively responding to environmental changes and are doing a good job in preventing and controlling the epidemic. At the same time, we have overcome difficulties and adjusted work arrangements in a timely manner, and we have achieved certain results, but there are still shortcomings that need to be improved. At the beginning of 2020, my country’s new crown pneumonia epidemic broke out. Chinese metal packaging companies earnestly implemented the government’s unified arrangements for fighting the epidemic and epidemic prevention and control. At the same time, it assisted the superiors to count the advanced deeds of the industry during the anti-epidemic period. In this fight against the epidemic, a group of companies that are brave enough to take responsibility and willing to contribute have emerged in the metal packaging industry. Such as: Origen, COFCO Packaging, Guangdong Yinglian, Guangdong Eurasia, Zhongrui, Nanshan Aluminum, Anhui Yingjia Group, Weiqiao Group, Shagang Group, Yixin Technology, etc. In terms of resuming work and production, ensuring employment and promoting stability, we actively fulfill our social responsibilities, contribute our own strength, and use our own methods to write the honor of metal packaging to better understand the impact of the epidemic on the industry and the needs of enterprises.

In accordance with the requirements of the “Guiding Opinions on Further Strengthening the Management of Industry Standards”, and in order to improve the quality and efficiency of the industry and improve the metal industry system, the Metal Committee in 2020 will comprehensively sort out all standards related to metal packaging. In accordance with the requirements of the National Standards Committee document, we strive to complete the revision and replacement of the imminent and outdated standards within 3 years, and launch “group standards” in a targeted manner to make up for the lagging problem of the existing standard system. In order to further deepen the government-enterprise linkages and strengthen corporate services, the Metal Committee has repeatedly visited member units to conduct visits and surveys, communicated face-to-face with corporate leaders, understood the actual problems encountered in corporate development, carefully listened to relevant opinions and suggestions, and gave full play to the association’s The role of bridges,

Strengthen regional exchanges, personnel exchanges and information exchanges to find and create more cooperation opportunities for member units.

In the past two years, affected by the international situation and the epidemic, the work of Chinese metal packaging companies has also encountered great resistance, and there are still many things to do. In the future, we will uphold the belief of “not forgetting the original intention and moving forward” in China. Under the leadership of the Packaging Federation, we will try our best to meet the urgent needs of enterprises and solve the difficulties of enterprises, continue to serve enterprises and seek development for the industry. In the post-epidemic period, risks and uncertainties exist objectively, but we are confident and capable of normalizing epidemic prevention and control under the leadership of the Party Central Committee with General Secretary Xi Jinping at the core, while stabilizing production and restoring the growth momentum of the industry. Contribute to the power of metal packaging for China’s packaging to become bigger, stronger and greener.
