Core reminder: The sixth of the eight recent tasks of the Raw Materials Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in the cement industry is to use clinker as a starting point, extend the industrial chain, strengthen technological transformation, develop contract management, modern logistics, e-commerce and other productive service industries, and improve Development quality and efficiency. The first part of this work to extend the industrial chain has been proposed in the industry for many years, many cement enterprises in the upstream development of construction sand, to the downstream development of ready-mixed concrete, ready-mixed mortar has taken great steps. The latter part of the development of modern logistics, e-commerce and other producer services is the first time clear in the work points.

And efficiency. (See: Ministry of Industry and Information Technology: Standardize Industry Access Cement Industry Proposes 8 Work This Year) The first part of this work has been proposed in the industry for many years to extend the industrial chain. Many cement companies are developing construction sand upstream and developing ready-mixed concrete downstream., Ready-mixed mortar has taken great steps. The latter part of the development of modern logistics, e-commerce and other producer services is the first time clear in the work points.

The State Council issued the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan for Domestic Trade Development" (hereinafter referred to as the "Plan") last year. The "Plan" clarified my country's domestic trade development strategy during the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan" period, proposed development policy guidance, and clarified the government. The focus of work, how to guide the behavior of market entities, and promote the sound and rapid development of domestic trade.

The Plan mentions that the overall scale of domestic trade is growing rapidly. The total retail sales of consumer goods and the total sales of means of production increased from 6.8 trillion yuan and 14.3 trillion yuan in 2005 to 15.7 trillion yuan and 36.1 trillion yuan in 2010 respectively. According to the development goal of the "Plan", the overall scale index will double by 2015. The total retail sales of consumer goods will be about 32 trillion yuan, with an average annual growth rate of about 15%, and the total sales of means of production will be about 76 trillion yuan, with an average annual growth rate of about 16%.

The overall scale of domestic trade The growth rate of the overall scale of domestic trade is much higher than the growth rate of GDP, which shows the great potential of its development.

In clarifying the basic principles of domestic trade development, the Plan puts forward five principles, which are briefly listed as follows:

-- Insisting on the fundamental role of the market.

-- Highlighting the strategic position of expanding consumption. We will promote innovation in consumer formats and business models, and vigorously promote convenient consumption, affordable consumption, hot spot consumption, circular consumption, safe consumption and credit consumption.

-- Enhance the important function of guiding production. We will promote cooperation between circulation enterprises and production enterprises, promote the convergence of production and marketing, and guide the transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry. Vigorously develop the production service industry, improve the production service network, accelerate the innovation of service products and service models, and promote the adjustment of industrial structure. Modern circulation drives modern production and improves the efficiency of economic operation. -- Clarifying the fundamental purpose of improving people's livelihood.

-- Injecting a strong driving force for reform and innovation. Promote the modernization of circulation with informatization, vigorously develop e-commerce; promote the interactive development of industrial integration, improve the degree of organization and intensification of circulation, and enhance the competitiveness of enterprises.

Although from the perspective of production and manufacturing, the cement industry, as a traditional industry, still has a lot of work to be done to improve, but from the perspective of achieving modern circulation, there is more work to be done, more (profit) potential to be tapped, and It can make manufacturing, modern logistics, and consumers mutually beneficial sharing. As proposed in the Plan, modern circulation is used to drive modern production and improve the efficiency of economic operation. Win-win profits by improving efficiency is the hard truth.

It is the development trend to drive the modernization of circulation with informatization, and it is the only way to vigorously develop e-commerce. Recently, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and other eight ministries and commissions issued the "Electronic Tendering and Bidding Measures", clarifying that electronic tendering and bidding activities are all or part of the tendering and bidding transactions, public services and administrative supervision activities completed by relying on the electronic tendering and bidding system. This marks the transition from traditional tendering and bidding activities to electronic tendering and bidding activities. This also reflects from another side that the country vigorously guides and supports the development of e-commerce.

For the cement industry, relying on the network, making full use of and giving full play to the role of information, and realizing the modernization of cement industry circulation is a necessary condition for moving from a big cement country to a strong cement country, and it is also a necessary condition for going international and leading the world's cement development.

At present, many cement groups and companies have made a lot of attempts in the development of modern logistics and e-commerce, but from the perspective of effect, it is indeed not big or fast. As the competent department of the cement industry, since the development of modern logistics, e-commerce and other productive service industries has been put on the agenda, it may as well grasp a few demonstration sites, go deep into the grassroots, and find out the obstacles, according to the characteristics of the cement industry, policies and measures are put forward to speed up the development of modern logistics and e-commerce in the cement industry.
