The 2019 Changsha International Construction Equipment Exhibition (CICEE 2019) kicked off with the theme of "Intelligent New Generation of Construction Machinery" on Wednesday.

Hu Henghua, a member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Hunan Provincial Committee and secretary of the CPC Changsha Municipal Committee, presided over the opening ceremony.

Du Jiahao, secretary of the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee and chairman of the Standing Committee of Hunan Provincial People's Congress, announced the opening of the event.

At the ceremony, Xu Dazhe, governor of Hunan province and deputy secretary of the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee, said the machinery industry has become a main force to promoting high-quality development of the manufacturing industry in the province.

The governor said Hunan is striving to build a world-class industrial cluster, and has constructed six National Enterprise Technology centers, four engineering and technology research centers, a state key laboratory, and 11 academician workstations.

The attendees also included Xin Guobin, Chinese vice minister of industry and information technology, Tauaika Utaatu, ambassador of the Kingdom of Tonga to China, Ahcène Boukhelfa, Algerian ambassador to China, and John Andruga Duku, South Sudan's ambassador to China.

Xin said although China's machinery industry has constructed a complete industrial structure, there are still issues of disparate development and underdevelopment, which demand further optimization of the industrial structure.

Representing the organizers of CICEE 2019, Wang Ruixiang, head of China Machinery Industry Federation (CMIF), delivered an opening speech. Wang said the machinery industry is a fundamental and strategic industry of China's national economy.

He said that China's machinery industry has made great achievements since the reform and opening up. In 2018, the scale of China's machinery industry topped the lists of both prime operating revenue and total profit, maintaining a growth rate of around 19% and surpassing 550 billion yuan in sales revenue.

Lang Yun, China general manager of John Deere, said there is a promising future ahead of China, and the company attaches great importance to China's market. Alongside China's implementation of its rural vitalization strategy and the Belt and Road Initiative, John Deere will continuously optimize product structure, improve service capability, industrial competitiveness and sustainability, as well as assist China in the construction of high-quality economy, Lang said.
