On the afternoon of May 19, Provincial Party Secretary Lou Qinjian and Governor Wu Zhenglong met in Nanjing with Ning Gaoning, chairman of Sinochem Group, who came to attend the second Jiangsu Development Conference and the first Global Soviet Business Conference. On the 20th, at the Yangzijiang Business Summit, the Chemical Industry Department of Sinochem Group signed a memorandum of understanding with Yangzhou Economic and technological Development Zone, which will invest in the new vehicle environmental protection ternary lithium battery project in Yangzhou Development Zone, with a total investment of more than 10 billion yuan. This 10 billion major project will not only lengthen and thicken the Yangzhou automobile industry chain, but also strongly help Yangzhou automobile industry to speed up the transformation and upgrading, bigger and stronger.
New energy vehicle is the focus and trend of the future development of the global automobile industry, which can not be separated from the development of lithium battery. "investing in the ternary lithium battery project in Yang is one of the strategic measures for our group to promote China's new energy industry to become bigger and stronger." According to the person in charge of the chemical department of Sinochem Group, Sinochem Group Co., Ltd. is an important state-owned backbone enterprise supervised by the State-owned assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council, and it is also one of the top 500 enterprises in the world. Sinochem Chemical Division is the main platform in the chemical field of the company. It has developed into a leading comprehensive service provider of chemical products in China. In the future, Sinochem Chemical Division will "new energy, new materials, biological industry" as the three major strategic directions, of which lithium battery is an important innovative business.
Yangzhou is one of the well-known automobile and parts industry bases in China, and it is also a national city for the promotion and application of new energy vehicles. "this is the focus of our future investment." According to the responsible person, according to the memorandum signed this time, Sinochem will invest in the automobile environmental protection ternary lithium battery project in Yangzhou Development Zone, with a total investment of more than 10 billion yuan, and the overall plan is to build a lithium battery production line with annual production capacity of 20GWh. It will be implemented in three phases. At the same time, Sinochem Group will Yangzhou as its new technology, new product alternative research and development base, actively explore new areas of cooperation and cooperation model.
Vehicle environmental protection lithium battery is one of the core technologies and one of the highest added value links of new energy vehicles. "Yangzhou automobile industry transformation and upgrading, speed up the development must adapt to the development trend of new energy vehicles." Geng Jiangbo, director of the Automotive Industry Department of the Municipal Bureau of Industry and Informatization, said that among the current manufacturing costs of new energy vehicles, power lithium batteries account for the highest proportion, reaching about 38 percent. The Sinochem Group invests in Yang's automobile environmental protection ternary lithium battery project with large volume and good quality, which is undoubtedly an important milestone for the development of the city's automobile industry, especially for the new energy vehicle industry.
Why does this more than 10 billion "big guy" favor Yangzhou? The most important reason is the continuous improvement of Yangzhou investment environment and a good foundation of automobile industry.

In recent years, the municipal party committee and municipal government have clearly regarded the automobile and parts industry as one of the eight advanced manufacturing clusters, actively planning and steadily advancing, through various ways, such as internal training and external introduction, and so on. We will speed up the development of the automobile industry. At present, the city has SAIC Volkswagen, Weichai (Yangzhou) Yaxing, Kowloon, Jianghuai and other vehicle production enterprises 13, It has gathered more than 210 parts and components enterprises with good foundation, strong strength and high brand awareness, such as Lear, Jiaming, Baolai, Yapu, Saif and so on. The products cover automobile power system, chassis system, body interior and exterior decoration, automobile electronics and so on, forming a relatively complete automobile industry chain and becoming a national well-known "automobile city".
