Rare earths are widely used in various fields, and the fluctuation of economic situation will have an impact on the downstream demand and price of rare earth oxides. In recent years, the structural contradictions in the rare earth industry are still prominent, the upstream smelting separation overcapacity, the relative shortage of downstream high-end application products, and the imbalance in the application of rare earth elements. At the same time, it still takes time to fully and effectively implement the rare earth industry policy. The prices of rare earth products are still fluctuating at a low level, and the company's operating income and profits will be affected accordingly. In view of the above situation, the company better grasped the rare earth industry policy change and the rare earth market fluctuation rhythm during the reporting period, and synthesized the policy guidance, the market situation and the company's own actual situation. It has formulated and adopted the production and operation plan of Hongjin Company and Dahua Company according to the production and operation plan and the production and operation plan flexibly arranged by Jianfeng Company according to the order situation. The separate enterprises owned by the company carried out the production and operation according to the production and operation plan during the reporting period.
