#1 Address by heads

In his speech, Zhu Bixin said, “China Chengtong is resolutely putting the important in place the directive spirit of Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC: "building effective platform for state-owned capital flow restructuring and distribution adjustment", and actively creates a "4+1" business pattern: i.e., fund investment, equity management, asset management, financial services and cultivation of strategic emerging industries. We are in strive to build a "reform toolbox" for high-quality development of SACSA central government-owned central enterprises and an "incubator" for prospective strategic emerging industries, and make positive contributions to the optimization and structural adjustment of central government-owned economic distribution and the high-quality development of these enterprises. Lishen Battery, a first state asset holding lithium-ion battery R&D and manufacture firm in China, has been intensively engaged in lithium battery sector for 26 years, serving international hi-end customers with technology and quality. Construction of Lishen Chuzhou Manufacture is an important move for expansion of production capacity and hi-quality sustainable development. Taking the commercial operation as an opportunity and led under national new energy and electric vehicle industrial trend, Lishen Battery will play “National Team” role for development of local economy and advanced photovoltaic and energy storage sectors.

“Chuzhou City focuses on new energy battery, new energy vehicle and photovoltaic energy, the said "three new home appliances". It is in pursuit of new racetracks and emerging sectors. The commissioning of Lishen Chuzhou Manufacture Base Phase I Plant and agreement signing for Phase II Plant is of significant practical importance for Chuzhou new energy battery sector to be clustered, trended, bigger and stronger. Chuzhou Municipal Party Committee and government will, as they did always, take care of Lishen development and support Lishen project. Quanjiao County and relevant departments are instructed to do their best to help Lishen with quality service. I hope both China Chengtong and Lishen Battery promote production to desired capacity and expected effect at the soonest, the project under the signed agreement be commenced and completed at the earliest, production size be constantly expanded and quality brand be established in Chuzhou”, said Xu Jiwei.

Zeng Chuisong said, “energy safeguard and security relates to national economy and people's livelihood. It is a country’s important issue that cannot be ignored even a moment. Lishen Battery, a “National Team” in lithium battery sector under the leadership of China Chengtong, has been striving and made unique achievement thanks to strong R&D capacity and deep technical background. It gained high attention and cultivation by relevant national authorities. It undertook a number of national strategic emerging industries key scientific research tasks and developed itself with “National Team” high-quality speed. I hope Lishen Battery continue to serve the national "new energy + energy storage" power system, low-carbon transformation of transportation, smart green logistics model, “carbon peak, carbon neutrality" strategy and global sustainable development.”

Lu Wensheng said, “lithium battery is a prospective strategic emerging industry. It supports new power system. It has great development potential and promising market. Both China Southern Power Grid Energy Storage Co., Ltd. and Lishen Battery are central government owned enterprises and they share high degree of strategic coordination. In August this year, China Southern Power Grid Energy Storage Co., Ltd. participated in Lishen (Qingdao) round-B financing with investment. It is expected both sides conduct more extensive and intensive cooperation in energy storage sci-technological innovation and industrial collaboration, jointly developing high quality energy storage sector.
