The Central Economic Work Conference pointed out that resolving overcapacity is a major issue that needs to be resolved urgently for the sustained and healthy development of my country's economy. Premier Li Keqiang pointed out that it is necessary to resolutely complete hard tasks such as curbing the blind expansion of industries with serious overcapacity. Cement is one of the six major industries with serious overcapacity clearly listed by the State Council. The problem of overcapacity has become a major problem that plagues the healthy and sustainable development of cement companies.

At present, the output growth rate of traditional industries such as cement and flat glass has accelerated. Some local governments and some enterprises continue to increase production capacity regardless of the overall development of the industry. In order to control the "entrance" of overcapacity, since last year, the China Building Materials Federation has specifically warned some regions and cement companies about new production capacity. Areas to be alerted and new capacity-enhancing projects include:

Heilongjiang: Jidong Cement New 7200t/d Dry Cement Production Line Project in Harbin

Hunan Province: Yongzhou Hongshi Cement New Dry Cement Production Line Project with Annual Output of 2 million Tons

Jilin Province:

Dongsheng Cement Co., Ltd. plans to build a new 4000t/d dry cement production line project in Jiangyuan District, Baishan City, Jilin Province in the name of reconstruction and expansion.

Guangli Special Cement Co., Ltd. Newly Built 4000t/d New Dry Cement Production Line Project in Lishu County, Siping City, Jilin Province

Yunnan Province, Guizhou Province, Gansu Province

Building Materials Federation advocates the development concept of "the interests of the industry are higher than the interests of enterprises, and the interests of enterprises are contained in the interests of the industry. Call on large enterprise groups in the cement industry to give full play to their leading and leading role, and shoulder more of the social responsibility of leading the industry to optimize stock, promote mergers and reorganizations, increase industrial concentration, curb blind new production capacity, and promote the healthy development of the cement industry.

According to incomplete statistics, in order to curb new production capacity, the China Building Materials Federation has issued nearly 20 letters to the national and local development and reform commissions, industry and information authorities, local governments, and building materials industry associations to stop illegal construction. From the feedback and understanding of the situation, the Federation's above-mentioned efforts have had a positive effect. The National Development and Reform Commission approved and forwarded the letter submitted by the Federation to stop the illegal construction of new lines in relevant provinces and cities, requiring the competent departments of local governments to come forward for verification. The provincial and municipal authorities concerned also took active action after receiving the letter. The development and reform department of Jilin Province and the industry and information technology department of Jilin Province, together with the provincial building materials industry association, jointly carried out on-the-spot investigation and studied the treatment methods. The competent leaders of Yongzhou City, Hunan Province and the local competent authorities attach great importance to it, and have instructed the land and other departments to check and deal with the situation of newly-built enterprises. In response to the problems reported, the Heilongjiang Ministry of Industry and Information Technology convened relevant enterprises and local associations to conduct special discussions and listen to opinions. Yunnan and Guizhou building materials industry associations are currently actively studying countermeasures to curb new production capacity.
