Could Vietnam be ASEAN’s next leading electric vehicle hub?




HONG KONG, June 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — ASEAN Member States are sending clear signals that they are ready to embrace the myriad of opportunities of developing a regional electric vehicle (EV) supply chain for the global automotive ecosystem.

Of these nations, Vietnam is in a unique position compared to other traditional automotive markets, as the growth of EVs has created a level playing field for new entrants in the industry (production, manufacturing and sales). This comes as the domestic economy expands its influence within the ASEAN.

In 2022, the country retained its title as Southeast Asia’s fastest-rising economy, with GDP increasing by eight percent, well above earlier forecasts. The 8.1 percent expansion of the manufacturing sector was the main driver in this growth, with other analytics suggesting that FDI will be a key to its advancement in the years ahead[1]. The country has already recorded USD 8.88 billion of FDI in the first quarter of 2023, to which the manufacturing sector saw some of the biggest shares[2].

Against this backdrop, the Vietnamese Government has set competitive targets for the automotive industry to become a regional hub for automobile production and exportation. This includes planning to increase production to one million units per year[3], with another goal being that 60 percent of automotive parts are procured from local plants by 2025[4].

The Government further aims to raise car sales to 900,000 vehicles annually[3]. Within this scope, Vietnam Automobile Manufacturers Association (VAMA) forecasts EV ownership will reach one million by 2028 and 3.5 million by 2040[5].

In respect of these goals, companies from approximately 35 countries and regions are turning to Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City 2023 to explore FDI and EV development within the automotive supply chain. The trade fair, from 23 to 25 June 2023, will house over 400 exhibitors at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC).

Ambitious as ever, the exhibition integrates elements of business, workshops and entertainment so that participants can easily capture market opportunities. It aims to amplify collaborative prospects across OE, production and automotive manufacturing, in addition to digital solutions and technological applications in the aftermarket.

Many are expected to travel in from around the country in hopes of communicating with domestic conglomerates, as well as companies from Australia, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Lithuania, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Türkiye, the UK, the US and more.

Key players include the likes of ABB, Bosch, Dielektrik UAB, EXEDY, Launch, Liqui Moly, OBD/Autel, SAMPA, TecAlliance, Yon Ming, and ZF.

Furthermore, sectors that would benefit from attending the show include OEMs, auto parts, finance and insurance, institutes for research and development, training centres, dealers, repair and maintenance workshops, chain stores, cloud-based solution providers, fleet operators, logistics and transportation, tech, data management, and recycling. 

In addition, through a collection of conferences and workshops, attendees can build up a greater awareness of EV adoption’s role in the ASEAN region’s sustainable development. Events will highlight business transformation and provides updates about the latest digital solutions, technological applications and operations. The show also offers hands-on training about EV maintenance and digital development, including high voltage and ADAS systems, as well as workshop management. Notable events include:

Auto Service Day (23 – 25 June 2023)Auto Service and Maintenance Workshop (24 – 25 June 2023)Automotive Manufacturing, Transformation and Automation Conference (23 June 2023)Digitalisation and Electrification Business Networking Event (24 June 2023)

CGTN: Why is people-centered development crucial to China?




BEIJING, June 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — In September 2021, a Beijing resident called a city hotline to report there were no bus routes near a newly built school in the Beijing Economic-Technological Development Area.

Two months later, a new bus route was launched.

The Chinese capital, a metropolis housing over 20 million people, has adopted a new approach to city management since 2019. It now works with 49 state-owned public service enterprises and institutions to offer a major hotline service of the city.

A total of 750 lines receive questions and complaints related to public services from local residents 24 hours a day.

“We find the most frequently reported city problems or demands, based on all the hotline calls we receive, and then take action,” said Geng Yu, chief of the reform division of “Handling A Complaint Upon Receipt” at the Beijing Municipal Administration of Government Affairs Services. “We put the people at the center no matter whether it is about urban governance or providing services to the people.”

The approach city managers take to solve residents’ problems reveals a lot about a government’s mindset regarding urban management and the way it treats its people.

There’s an old saying that’s well known in China: “The water that keeps a ship afloat can also overturn it.” Chinese President Xi Jinping, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, once quoted it to describe the relationship between the people and the Party. In this case, water refers to the people while the boat refers to the Party’s leadership.

The saying suggests that only by taking good care of the people’s needs can the CPC win their support. That’s why the CPC has made it a basic principle to serve the people wholeheartedly.

Xi has urged that “tackling problems that prompt the strongest public reaction and that threaten to erode the very foundation of the Party’s governance” must be prioritized.

In the report Xi delivered to the 20th CPC National Congress in 2022, he said “we must protect the people’s fundamental interests, improve their well-being, and work tirelessly to ensure that development is for the people and by the people and that its fruits are shared by the people. We must do a better job of seeing that the gains of modernization benefit all our people fairly.”

Xi also stressed the significance of a basic principle: “The aspirations of the people to live a better life must always be the focus of our efforts. We must keep on striving with endless energy toward the great goal of national rejuvenation.”–1kkmnFUe74Y/index.html
