Suggestions on Further Expanding the Southward Seaward Passage of Our Province and Expanding Opening Cooperation to Southeast Asia

Democratic League of Sichuan Province

丝绸之路经济带 孟中印缅经济走廊 的主要通道和西南地区通往 海上丝绸之路 的重要交通枢纽,具有加快南向开放合作特别是面向东南亚开放合作的基础。 Sichuan is the main channel connecting the Silk Road Economic Belt and the Meng-China-India-Burma Economic Corridor and an important transportation hub in the southwest to the Maritime Silk Road . It has the foundation for accelerating open cooperation to the south, especially to Southeast Asia. . In recent years, the province's exchanges and cooperation with Southeast Asia have continued to deepen, and companies in Sichuan's furniture, textile and apparel, footwear, motorcycle accessories and other industries have gradually increased their investment in Southeast Asia and have begun to take shape.

But at the same time, there are still some difficulties and problems in our province's southbound open cooperation. 引进来 走出去 ,对外开放合作的动力不足;四川具有国际视野的大型民营企业较少,国际知名度偏低;中小民营企业外出发展还缺少有效的组织;不少在外发展的民营企业融资困难、缺少精通当地语言和法律的高层次人才等。 For example, not enough attention is paid to the Southeast Asian market, channel construction needs to be strengthened, " importing " and " going out " are insufficient, and there is insufficient motivation for opening up and cooperation; Sichuan has a large number of large private enterprises with an international vision and low international visibility; small and medium-sized private enterprises There is still a lack of effective organizations for out-of-town development of enterprises; many private enterprises developing abroad have difficulty in financing and lack of high-level talents who are proficient in local languages and laws.

At present, many problems faced by the development of private enterprises include the problems of inadequate protection of the rule of law and a poor business environment, as well as the lagging of the company's own thinking and the difficulty of transformation and upgrading. Southeast Asian countries are rich in resources, have obvious geographical advantages, low labor costs, large development space, and most of the economies are relatively backward. The desire to accelerate development is very strong. 高大上 的大型基建项目,当地更迫切希望众多中小企业前往投资。 Compared with the " tall and tall " large-scale infrastructure projects, the local community is more eager to invest in SMEs. If we can guide private enterprises to Southeast Asian countries in an organized way, it will not only strengthen the economic and cultural exchanges between Sichuan and Southeast Asian countries, promote the high-quality development of Sichuan's economy, but also create new opportunities for the development of private economy in our province. Space.

一带一路 建设的历史机遇,进一步加大南向特别是对东南亚的开放力度。 To this end, it is recommended that our province seize the historical opportunity of implementing the " Belt and Road " construction and further increase the opening of the southward direction, especially to Southeast Asia.

1. Further improve the degree of organization of opening up. Relying on the Provincial Foreign Affairs Leading Group, strengthen the organization and leadership of Southbound, especially Southeast Asian open cooperation, study and introduce policies for opening, exchange, and cooperation with Southeast Asia, and strengthen business visits and exchanges to Southeast Asian countries. Strengthen ties and exchanges with local embassies and consulates in China, coordinate the forces of commerce, economy, foreign affairs and other departments, and organize Sichuan enterprises to hold investment recommendation meetings and field investigations and investigations in Southeast Asia. Guide Sichuan enterprises to form economic and trade associations for Southeast Asia, or rely on various industry associations to strengthen cooperation and docking with local Chinese and overseas Chinese chambers of commerce. Actively promote the construction of international friendship cities, explore the establishment of international friendship cities between our province and Vietnam ’s Quang Ninh province and other places, promote high-level mutual visits and deepen bilateral cooperation.

2. Further strengthen the construction of the channel facing Southeast Asia. Actively strive for national support to promote the construction of the China-Myanmar railway project, open up a large passage from Sichuan to Myanmar that directly faces the Indian Ocean through Yunnan, and build a more convenient and faster passage to the sea. Taking advantage of the construction opportunity of Tianfu International Airport, we will actively promote the feasibility study of direct flights from Chengdu to Yangon, Myanmar, Hanoi, Vietnam, and Cebu, Philippines, and strengthen the transportation between our province and Southeast Asian countries. 72 小时过境免签政策可行性,增进开放互信。 Actively strive for the construction of the consulates of the Philippines and other countries in Chengdu, and study the feasibility of implementing a 72- hour transit visa exemption policy for citizens of Southeast Asian countries such as Myanmar, Vietnam, and the Philippines to increase openness and mutual trust.

3. Further strengthen economic and trade cooperation in key areas. Make full use of the channel construction, strengthen economic and trade cooperation with Southeast Asian countries, and focus on encouraging enterprises in the electronic information, agriculture, and tourism industries to go global. Strengthen cooperation in the agricultural industry, make full use of the resource advantages of Southeast Asia, further sort out cooperation projects in planting, animal husbandry, fishery, agricultural product trade, practical technical training, etc., and organize agricultural enterprises, colleges and scientific research institutions on both sides to strengthen exchanges Docking will enhance cooperation in agricultural investment, technology exchange, and complementary agricultural products. Strengthen cooperation in labor-intensive industries such as electronic information and clothing, and organize related enterprises to transfer excess capacity to Southeast Asian countries.

4. Further deepen the humanities exchanges and cooperation between the two sides. Sichuan is rich in higher education resources. The national treasure giant panda, Mount Emei, and Leshan Giant Buddha are quite well-known among Southeast Asian people, and have obvious advantages in promoting cultural exchanges. Suggestions: First, support the establishment of small-language majors such as Burmese and Vietnamese at Sichuan universities. Second, close cooperation between universities in the province, including vocational and technical colleges, and education in Southeast Asian countries, organize visits between teachers and students, and increase the number of overseas students from Southeast Asian countries to Sichuan in majors such as electronic information, infrastructure construction, equipment manufacturing, and management. Cooperation provides talent support. The third is to increase the promotion of tourism in Southeast Asia and strengthen the planning and design of tourism routes, organize powerful tourism enterprises to dock with foreign parties, develop two-way tourism and cultural exchanges, and promote exchanges and mutual understanding between the province and Southeast Asian countries.

5. Further avoid the risks of communication and cooperation. The overall development of Southeast Asia is relatively backward. Some countries have problems such as incomplete infrastructure, unstable social environment, and incomplete legal systems. There are certain risks in strengthening the cooperation between our province and Southeast Asian countries, especially in organizing enterprises to invest there. To this end, it is necessary to conduct in-depth research and multi-party demonstrations to turn existing risks into development opportunities. It is recommended to support qualified universities in the province to set up research centers for Southeast Asia and strengthen special studies on the economic, political, and cultural aspects of Southeast Asian countries. With the help of relevant industry associations, encourage enterprises to develop in groups, guide enterprises to establish investment risk assessment and emergency response mechanisms, strengthen risk assessment, and ensure that bilateral cooperation achieves expected economic and social benefits.

2. Progress of cooperation between our province and Southeast Asia

Southeast Asia is an important partner and priority direction for our province to promote the construction of the “Belt and Road” initiative. It has a high degree of compatibility with the province's economy and industry, is highly complementary, and contains great potential for cooperation and development. The proposal suggests that our province should seize the historical opportunity of implementing the "Belt and Road" construction and further increase the opening of the south, especially to Southeast Asia, which is in line with the reality of our province's opening to the outside world. Highlighting the southward direction, especially expanding open cooperation with Southeast Asian countries, is conducive to cultivating our province's new advantages of opening up to the outside world, expanding new development space, and also helping our province to fully participate in the international industrial division of labor and establish new types of cooperative relationships and industries with relevant countries. In the supply chain, international capacity cooperation is carried out at a higher level, a larger scope and a wider range.

Our province has always maintained close friendly relations with Southeast Asian countries. Especially in recent years, under the guidance of the "Belt and Road" construction, our province has vigorously promoted "four-way expansion and global opening", placing south-facing areas including Southeast Asia in the prominent position of opening to the outside world at this stage and introducing a smooth south-facing channel We have deepened the implementation of Southbound Opening and Cooperation and continuously enriched and expanded exchanges and cooperation with Southeast Asia in all fields and achieved fruitful results. 一是伙伴关系更加密切。 It is mainly reflected in the following four aspects: First, the partnership is closer. 建立 1 5对国际友城和友好合作关系 ,为密切双边经贸合作、文化交流、高层互访等提供有力保障。 Thailand, Singapore, and the Philippines have been approved to set up consulates in Sichuan, Singapore and Malaysia non-corporate economic organizations have set up permanent representative offices in Sichuan, and our province has set up a business representative office in Cambodia to establish 15 pairs of international friendship cities and friendly cooperative relations with Southeast Asian countries To provide strong guarantees for close bilateral economic and trade cooperation, cultural exchanges, and high-level mutual visits. Southeast Asian countries have become the main destinations for residents of our province to travel and study abroad. The second is smoother interconnection. 初步形成。 Our province has formed 4 south-bound railway channels into and out of Sichuan, and 8 highway lanes. Chengdu International Aviation Hub routes cover many countries in Southeast Asia. South-bound international trains have made historic breakthroughs. Since the opening, the number of lines has exceeded 640. The comprehensive transport pattern of the southbound channel of Unicom Southeast Asia has taken shape. Third, trade exchanges have become closer. ASEAN is our province's second largest trading partner and the largest export market. The main export products are integrated circuits, computers, chemicals, steel, light industrial products, etc. The imported products are mainly electronic components, TV parts, etc. More than 2,300 enterprises in the province conduct trade with Southeast Asian countries, accounting for nearly half of the province's import and export performance. The province's trade share with Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and other countries has steadily increased year by year. Fourth, two-way investment is more open. Our province focuses on Southeast Asia's high-quality enterprises and high-end industries, and introduces a group of Fortune 500 companies such as Thailand's Chia Tai Group and Singapore's Yanlord Group. The construction of a number of cooperative parks such as Xinchuan Innovation and Technology Park and Suining Asean High-Tech Industrial Park has been accelerated. Our province's enterprises have invested more than 70 projects in Southeast Asia, and the Chinese investment has exceeded US $ 2 billion. Huiyuanda Laos Potassium Chloride, Weibo Thailand Fiberglass and other major projects have been successfully promoted, which has effectively promoted Sichuan's manufacturing, technology, standards, services, and brands. Chain-style "going out."
