President of China Textile Industry Federation

December 29, 2022

2022 is an extraordinary year, a boundary and turning point.

In the past year, we have experienced the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 epidemic and the profound influence of geopolitics. The world economy continues to be depressed, the external environment is turbulent, and various risks and challenges far exceed expectations. The change of the world, the change of the times, and the change of history unfolded in an unprecedented way. In the face of risks and challenges, under the correct leadership of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, we overcame the most difficult moments and ushered in a major transformation in the fight against the epidemic and the recovery of the economy with resilience, patience, determination and decisiveness.

The transformation is not only reflected in the opportunity of development, but also in the long-term trend.

The successful convening of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) has opened a broad prospect of comprehensively promoting the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation with Chinese style modernization. The report of the 20th CPC National Congress pointed out that, "High quality development is the primary task of building a modern socialist country in an all-round way." "Without a solid material and technological foundation, it is impossible to build a modern socialist country in an all-round way." "To build a modern industrial system, we should focus on the real economy and promote new industrialization." This has pointed out a bright future for our next work Provides fundamental compliance.

At the turning point of the times, we need to strengthen our confidence and forge ahead in the new journey of Chinese modernization. Keep the original intention, take the people as the center, constantly solve the major social contradictions, and steadily promote common prosperity in the process of high-quality development of the industry; Build courage, "don't believe in the east wind, call back", dare to struggle, dare to break through, dare to win, and open a new situation for the development of the industry.

1、 The industry works effectively and makes contributions to the stable development of the economy and society

Since this year, the development of the industry has been under pressure due to unexpected factors such as insufficient demand. From January to October, the industrial added value of enterprises above designated size in the textile industry decreased by 0.9% year on year; The retail sales of clothing, shoes and hats, knitwear and textiles by units above the designated size nationwide were 1041.4 billion yuan, down 4.4% year on year; The profit of textile enterprises above designated size was 147.18 billion yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 25.7%. China's textile industry overcame difficulties and maintained the overall stability of the industry development. Some future oriented structural indicators showed outstanding performance.

From the perspective of scale advantage, from January to October, the operating revenue of textile enterprises above 35000 households in China reached 4207.14 billion yuan, up 1.7% year on year. Online channel sales rebounded, and the national retail sales of online clothing products increased by 5.3% year on year, 0.6 percentage points faster than the first three quarters.

In terms of competitiveness, from January to November, China's textile and clothing exports reached US $297.63 billion, up 4.5% year on year. Among them, textile exports reached US $136.93 billion, up 4.7% year on year; Clothing exports reached US $160.7 billion, up 4.3% year on year. Since this year, the growth rate of China's textile and clothing exports to ASEAN has always remained above 20%.

From the perspective of structural adjustment, the demand for intelligent and green transformation of enterprises and optimization of industrial layout has been released, and the investment in the textile industry has achieved rapid growth. From January to October, the investment growth rate of textile industry, clothing industry and chemical fiber industry was 6.0%, 28.4% and 27.0% respectively.

The development of the industry plays an irreplaceable role in stabilizing economic development, balancing the balance of payments, creating employment space, promoting the improvement of people's livelihood, and is the ballast of the stabilizer in the national economy.

Faced with the pressure of industry development, China Textile Federation has taken an active role in ensuring and promoting the steady and healthy development of the industry. China Textile Federation successfully completed the election of the new council. Take the inspection work of the Party Committee of SASAC as an opportunity, and take the inspection and rectification to promote the overall leadership of the Party in the whole China Textile Federation system, further improve the organizational structure, and constantly improve the industry service ability. Especially since the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the China Textile Federation has taken the study, publicity and implementation of the spirit of the 20th National Congress of the CPC as the primary political task to implement, and ensured that the line, principles and policies of the CPC and the decisions and deployment of the CPC Central Committee are implemented in the industry with practical services.

Focusing on the international trade situation, dual carbon and green development, regional and cluster construction, industrial design, brand development, scientific and technological innovation, digital economy and other important concerns of the industry, project research has been carried out, and a number of achievements have been formed, which strongly support government decision-making, industry services and enterprise development.

During the two sessions this year, the China Textile Federation assisted the textile industry representatives to form proposal materials. Among them, the Proposal on Further Strengthening the Strategic Basic Capacity Building of Industrial Textile Industry and the Proposal on Promoting the Development and Application of Domestic High Performance Fiber Materials were designated as national key proposals by the National People's Congress.

At the critical moment of fighting against the COVID-19 epidemic, the China Textile Federation conducted research on key enterprises, clusters and professional markets through online and offline channels, timely fed back industry demands, strived for industrial policy support, helped enterprises overcome the difficulties of the stage, and ensured the steady development of the industry.

On the occasion of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, China Textile Federation systematically summarized the development achievements and experience of the textile industry in the new era, spread positive energy and set sail for a new journey through a variety of media platforms. The China Textile Federation organized all party members, cadres and workers to earnestly study, publicize and implement the spirit of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) at the first time, and carried out systematic research to condense the understanding and action of the industry into various tasks determined by the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

(2) Market first, linking domestic and international, integrating into the new development pattern

Create a social and international environment conducive to industrial development. Strengthen publicity and guidance, and promote social awareness of the textile industry to restart. The industry development was introduced through CCTV's "Focus Interview" program, China Daily, professional media and other channels, which triggered positive responses in the society. The China Textile Federation has always insisted on safeguarding the legitimate interests of industrial development, issued a statement firmly opposing the so-called "border related act" of the United States, continued to follow up the progress, and cooperated with the government departments to do a good job in response. On platforms such as the International Textile Federation, we will take a stand to enhance the world's understanding of China's textile industry and promote the global textile industry to build a community of shared destiny. Through the World Cloth Merchants Conference, the International Wool Textile Conference, the China International Chemical Fiber Conference and other platforms, the industry voice was made to promote practical cooperation.

(4) Innovation driven, focusing on technology and talents, and building an industrial strategic support system

Continue to promote breakthroughs in key technologies. Guide industry universities, scientific research institutes and enterprises to jointly apply for national key research and development plans, take national key scientific and technological projects as the traction, integrate innovation resources in the industrial chain, and promote the collaborative tackling of key core technologies in the industry. In 2022, a total of 8 projects in the textile industry will be supported by the national key research and development plan of the Ministry of Science and Technology. Strengthen scientific and technological services in the industry and promote the transfer and transformation of scientific and technological achievements. Hold academic conferences, technical forums and other activities to promote technology research and development, cooperation, transformation and promotion based on the work of technology innovation alliance, product innovation alliance, collaborative innovation consortium, innovation demonstration base, etc. Continuously carry out industry science and technology awards and outstanding patent selection activities.

(6) Coordinate development, link industry and region, and optimize industrial spatial layout

Integrate industrial development into major regional development strategies, and create a virtuous circle of coordinated development between industry and regions. We will deepen the work of cluster services, promote the effective connection between the consolidation and expansion of poverty alleviation achievements and the overall revitalization of rural areas, and narrow the differences between urban and rural areas, workers and farmers.

The fifth reexamination of national textile industry cluster pilot areas was completed. The 2022 National Textile Industry Cluster Working Conference was held. In 2022, there will be 9 industrial cluster areas newly joined in the pilot project. As of December 8, there will be 202 national textile and clothing industrial cluster areas established with China Textile Federation, including 31 industrial base cities, 73 characteristic cities and 98 characteristic towns.

Strengthen the guidance of regional industrial development through research, project cooperation, planning and other forms. Strengthen advantages and continue to cultivate and develop world-class textile industry clusters. Take projects, conferences, exhibitions and other activities as carriers to guide the central and western, northeastern and border provinces to undertake industrial transfer according to their resource endowments. The 2022 Global Textile and Clothing Supply Chain Conference, 2022 Jiangxi Textile and Clothing Week and Jiangxi (Ganzhou) Textile and Clothing Industry Expo and other events promoted the development of industries in relevant regions. The industrial development pattern with distinctive characteristics, complementary advantages and coordinated development accelerated to take shape.

2、 Firm confidence, find opportunities, and start a new situation in the process of Chinese modernization

At present, the uncertainty and vulnerability of the external environment have increased significantly. Geopolitical conflicts continue to deepen, and the global economy is facing the risk of recession, characterized by high volatility and low growth. The World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, OECD and other institutions predict that the global economic growth rate in 2023 will be lower than that in 2022. Global debt risk is accumulating. The report of Global Debt Monitoring shows that the debt to GDP ratio of developing economies has risen to 254%. The contraction of demand, supply shock and weakening expectation are forming the realistic pressure of industrial development. In the face of challenges, we should be firm optimists, see opportunities in cold encounters, and complete transitions in setbacks.

(1) Grasp the opportunity of intensive development contained in the market shuffle

Since this year, due to multiple factors such as shrinking demand, rising costs, and poor circulation, the balance sheets of market players around the world have generally been under pressure, and many enterprises are facing survival challenges. The Global Enterprise Bankruptcy Report 2022 predicts that the global enterprise bankruptcy rate will rise by 10% and 14% respectively in 2022 and 2023. In the second quarter of this year, the number of British corporate bankruptcies reached the highest level since 2009. The rapid shuffle of the market, to some extent, has created conditions for enterprises to integrate high-quality resources globally. Bain report shows that the global M&A transaction volume may reach 4.7 trillion US dollars in 2022, becoming the second highest year on record. The open development of the global market has also created conditions for the circulation and integration of industrial resources. According to the manufacturing FDI restriction index released by the OECD, the manufacturing FDI restriction index of various countries has been declining in recent years. The average level of the FDI restriction index of OECD countries and non OECD countries has declined from 0.018 and 0.069 in 2010 to 0.017 and 0.050 in 2020, respectively. Many enterprises have carried out mergers and acquisitions and integration this year, such as Li Ning Holding Clarks, a century old British shoe brand; Hengshen Holding Group further broadened the industrial chain through the acquisition of Ankoro. On the other hand, some enterprises with competitive advantages will gain greater market share and development space after surviving the crisis. We should improve our internal skills, strengthen our advantages, and grasp the opportunities for intensive development under market reshuffle with key investment layout.

(2) Grasp the opportunity of brand growth in the context of low consumption

Global inequality has risen for the first time in decades. The share of the richest 1% of the population in the world's total wealth has risen from 44% in 2020 to 46% in 2021. According to the data of the International Labour Organization, in the first half of 2022, the global per capita real monthly wage will decline by 0.9%, which is the first negative growth since this century. The COVID-19 epidemic has historically widened the global gap between rich and poor, significantly weakened the global consumption capacity and confidence, and significantly squeezed the middle end consumer market. From the sharp decline of "Double 11" express packages to the slowest Christmas shopping season in Europe since 2007, the market chill is being conveyed. The heavy snow presses the green pines, which are straight and upright. Although insufficient demand is a serious problem at present, the high attention to cost performance also provides an opportunity for Chinese brands with good quality and low price to impress consumers, especially the middle class. For example, Temu, the cross-border e-commerce platform of Pinduoduo, has ranked first in the list of free shopping applications in the US App Store within 50 days since its launch in North America in September. As the largest developing country, China's domestic demand market also provides strategic depth for brand development. In 2021, only 20% of the high-income class in China's rural areas will earn slightly more than the national average. The McKinsey report predicts that by 2030, the scale of China's personal consumption will reach 65.3 trillion yuan, of which more than 66% of the growth will come from the third tier cities, counties and townships. The continuously upgraded sinking market will become a fertile ground for cultivating user trust. We need to make full use of the time window of short-term differentiation and long-term upgrading of the market to accelerate industrial upgrading and brand development.

(3) Grasp the opportunity of diversified layout in the adjustment of industrial pattern

By 2022, more than 350 regional trade agreements have come into force. The trend of localization, regionalization and diversification of the global supply chain is growing. According to the survey of the American Fashion Industry Association, 53.1% of the surveyed American textile and clothing enterprises will purchase in more than 10 countries and regions in 2022, up from 36.6% in 2021 and 42.1% in 2020. Although the change of the original cooperation system has increased uncertainty, it also provides more diversified cooperation possibilities for the industry. The entry into force of the RCEP agreement has significantly reduced trade and investment barriers in the Asia Pacific region, and more than 90% of the regional trade in goods will eventually achieve zero tariffs. Emerging markets and developing countries such as Arab countries, ASEAN and Africa are becoming a vast blue ocean of industrial cooperation and market development. According to United Nations data, it is estimated that by 2025, there will be 150 million households in Africa with an income of more than 5000 dollars, which means they can spend more than half of their income on their own; The popular Muslim # muslim tag on TikTok has been played more than 60 billion times. We should adapt to the adjustment of the global industrial division of labor, accelerate the construction of a closer, more efficient, mutually beneficial and win-win industrial cooperation system, and serve the global market with the global industry.

The 20th CPC National Congress opened a new chapter of Chinese style modernization, and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation entered an irreversible historical process. This is where the confidence, confidence and current situation of the industry development lie. To promote the modernization of a huge population, there is a huge potential to further transform population advantages into development advantages and market advantages; To promote the modernization of common prosperity for all people and narrow the gap between urban and rural areas, between workers and farmers, and between regions is a broad space for industrial development; Promote the modernization of material civilization and spiritual civilization, consolidate the material and technological foundation of industrial development, and cultivate the potential energy of cultural innovation; Promote the modernization of harmonious coexistence between human and nature, and build a good ecology and new advantages for sustainable industrial development from the future and long-term perspective; To promote modernization along the path of peaceful development, a pattern of global industrial development has been formed in the efficient flow of resources and the effective connection of internal and external circulation.

Recently, the national level timely adjusted the epidemic prevention and control measures and pressed the "fast forward" button of economic recovery. In December, Morgan Stanley raised its rating on China's stock market; Goldman Sachs recently predicted that China's GDP growth will accelerate from 3.0% this year to 4.5% next year. High allocation of China and bullish China are becoming the general sentiment in the capital market. Focusing on stabilizing and developing the economy, the country has issued the Outline of the Strategic Plan for Expanding Domestic Demand (2022-2035) to foster a complete domestic demand system and provide strategic guidance for promoting investment and consumption. The industry has survived the most difficult moment. The charter flights of industrial enterprises from Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Sichuan and other places demonstrate the vitality and confidence of enterprises in the future.

Facing the future, we need to coordinate the overall situation of the great rejuvenation strategy of the Chinese nation and the unprecedented changes in the world in a century, deeply understand the new features and changes of the internal and external environment, enhance the awareness of opportunities and risks, brave the wind and waves, and forge a new situation.

3、 Grasp the key points and systematically promote the effective improvement of quality and reasonable growth of quantity

At present, China's textile industry has shifted from a stage of rapid growth to a stage of high-quality development, and is in the critical period of transforming the development mode, optimizing the industrial structure, and transforming the growth impetus. From overwhelming to indomitable, extending to the high-end of the value chain and building a modern industrial system are the inevitable requirements to promote high-quality development. We should follow the objective laws and focus our efforts.

(1) Focus on improving total factor productivity

Factor input and efficiency improvement are two major sources of economic growth. The limitation and scarcity of resources determine that improving total factor productivity is the only way to achieve high-quality development. To improve total factor productivity, it is necessary to use innovation to drive factor upgrading, structural optimization and rule adjustment, form an input-output relationship of high efficiency, high quality, high responsibility and low cost, and achieve sustained growth in quantity through substantial improvement in quality.

1. Strengthen the power of scientific and technological innovation

As the source of industrial innovation, scientific and technological innovation is the basis for forming new input-output relationship and creating new development paradigm. Manufacturing innovation represented by intelligent manufacturing and additive manufacturing, material innovation represented by high-performance fibers and biomaterials, and product innovation represented by intelligent textiles and functional textiles are all systematic development driven by technological change. At present, innovation is highly polarized. In practice, from fine chemical industry, material research and development, to equipment manufacturing, the more traditional fields, the more basic technologies, the more obvious the gap between China and developed countries, and the more difficult it is to surpass. For example, the localization rate of R&D design software and simulation software is less than 10% and 5% respectively. To achieve a high level of self-reliance and self-improvement, it is necessary to grasp the trend of cutting-edge technology, strengthen basic innovation, and gather key technologies to tackle key problems; At the same time, we should promote the effective transformation of basic innovation and application innovation.

2. Extend the space for integration and innovation

Breaking the boundary, everything can be woven. Technological innovation and scene extension are accelerating the melting of industrial boundaries and the recombination of resource elements. From the bioeconomy represented by synthetic biology and modern breeding, to the great health field represented by medical textiles and leisure sports equipment, to the marine economy represented by the development of chitin fiber and seaweed fiber, integration and innovation have become an important trend of industrial restructuring and are shaping the future of the industry and the future industry. For example, Babe Group pioneered the industrial silkworm rearing technology of artificial feed. The subversion of the model has greatly improved labor productivity. Silk innovation in food preservation, seed coating, textile coating and other fields is also creating greater value; Joyful Home Textile successfully weaves a replaceable artificial blood vessel of human aorta with micron grade materials, realizing the extension of the industrial chain. The industry should promote the upgrading of industrial structure and value creation in the process of integrated innovation and innovation integration.

3. Improve the value of design innovation

Textile and clothing have cultural attributes, and design innovation is its flexibility. From material design, pattern design to product design, creative design integrates material creation and spiritual creation, and transforms emotional value, aesthetic value and experience value into product value and brand value, which is the key way to lead the industry to the high-end of the value chain. In recent years, in the convergence of global culture and local culture, the systematic exploration and creative transformation of culture are becoming a new source of value for the fashion industry. The industry should enhance cultural confidence, deepen the excavation and transformation of culture, activate the unique gene of Chinese culture, and create style and value with a design with Chinese depth, global breadth and era characteristics. It is necessary to promote the innovative integration of the style of the times, the natural style and the style of life, and create a development ecology of fashion industry and content industry, entertainment industry, and tourism industry.

4. Promote digital innovation integration

In 2021, the contribution rate of data elements to China's GDP growth will reach 14.7%, and the digital economy is promoting the renewal of industry elements and resources, process and scenario reengineering.

From the perspective of production mode, new models such as personalized customization, digital management, intelligent production, networked collaboration, and service-oriented extension have become new engines for industrial upgrading. The scale of the global industrial robot market has expanded rapidly, with the installation volume increasing by 27% year on year in 2021. Robots are shaping a new input-output relationship.

From the perspective of industrial links, market players are precisely connected with business scenarios, economies of scope and economies of scale are highly unified, and new business forms such as cross-border e-commerce, live streaming e-commerce, and e-commerce of interest continue to emerge. The industrial metauniverse is realizing the synergy between the virtual and the real, and is building a complex digital industrial ecology of full immersion, all elements, and all experience.

From the perspective of innovation paradigm, the data intensive scientific research paradigm has accelerated the process of knowledge creation. DeepMind has cracked more than 200 million protein structures. The emergence of generative AI such as ChatGPT is one of the most important science and technology stories this year. AI technology is approaching the boundary of human creativity and profoundly changing the way of innovation and creativity.

The industry should reshape the new momentum and advantages of development with the digital transformation of the whole process, the whole scene, the whole contact and the whole life cycle.

5. Building a green and innovative future

Green development has become an inevitable choice to improve total factor productivity. At present, factor resources are converging to the green economy at an exponential speed, the industrial structure is accelerating the green transformation, and the innovation of green energy and green materials changes the factor cost structure from the source. The development of coal chemical industry and bio based materials has enriched the raw material supply of the industry; In December, the United States realized the net energy gain of nuclear fusion reaction for the first time, bringing new imagination of future energy; High performance fiber composites such as carbon fiber are gradually playing a positive role in low carbon in wind power, photovoltaic, vehicle lightweight and other fields. From production process, manufacturing mode to management system, the systematic green transformation of industry is reshaping the cost structure and competitive advantage. In 2021, the global recycling value of waste textiles will rise to 2.098 billion US dollars. Carbon emission management has become an important part of ESG and constitutes a new asset value. The industry should integrate ideas and practices, balance reality and the future, accelerate the promotion of green total factor productivity, and achieve the unity of economic benefits, ecological benefits, and social benefits.

(2) Focus on improving the resilience and safety level of the industrial chain supply chain

Supply chain is the core issue of global industrial development in the new situation. The security and stability of the industrial chain supply chain is an important support to ensure economic stability and supply and demand balance, and is the key to building international competitive advantage in the new development pattern. At present, factor changes and system changes are intertwined. We should grasp the key factors affecting the supply chain of the industrial chain, adapt to changes and win the initiative.

1. Coping with changes brought about by rules

The world pattern and balance of power are undergoing profound changes. Great power game, geopolitical conflict, industrial policies and trade policies of various countries are entering a period of intensive adjustment. In October, the United States issued the National Security Strategy, which defined China as "the most important geopolitical challenge of the United States". From the "border related act" to the "national security strategy", it has seriously affected the stable cooperation of the global supply chain. The coming into force Australia India Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement will also challenge the supply chain of China's cotton textile, wool textile and other industrial chains. On the other hand, the development of new economies such as digital economy and green economy has brought about the reshaping of global rules. By the end of July 2022, the number of global comprehensive agreements including digital trade has reached 120, involving about 70% of WTO members. On November 28, the European Union adopted the new ESG law, Enterprise Sustainable Development Report Directive CSRD, which requires that sustainable development be included in all aspects of the enterprise supply chain. On December 18, the world's first carbon border tax CBAM was officially approved, which will generate spillover pressure on interested parties in the EU supply chain value chain. We should strengthen international cooperation and actively respond to the adjustment of rules.

2. Adapt to changes brought about by factors

Since the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the importance of resource factors in the supply chain has been constantly strengthened. Raw materials and energy have become the key factors affecting the stability of the global industrial chain supply chain. Data shows that the proportion of energy cost in production cost of European textile enterprises has risen from 5% to about 25%. The European supply chain production system represented by Germany is gradually shifting to the United States and Asia. For example, BASF hopes to spend 15% of its global investment in North America from 2022 to 2026. Strengthening the layout around resource elements has become an important trend. As a large manufacturing and population country, China has a high dependence on crude oil, cotton, wool, flax and other primary products, of which the dependence on crude oil is more than 70%. Refining is an important area of cooperation with the deepening of cooperation between China and Arab countries. In the future, in the process of the "Belt and Road" construction, we will strengthen international cooperation around resource elements, constantly improve the industrial layout, and enhance the ability to integrate resources.

3. Meet the changes brought by strength

At present, the impact of single labor cost on the layout of the industrial chain supply chain is weakening. A complete industrial system, complete infrastructure, and complete innovation and application ecology have become important factors affecting the layout of the global industrial chain supply chain and an important source of development resilience. The study of the Industrial Development Report 2022 shows that countries with better manufacturing systems can better cope with the economic crisis than other countries. In 2021, FDI in developed countries will increase by 517 billion US dollars, accounting for 72% of the global FDI increase. After years of development, the production capacity structure of China's textile industry has been continuously optimized, high-end, intelligent and green, and the manufacturing capacity has been steadily improved. Basic innovation and application innovation have advanced together. Industrial scientific and technological innovation has moved from "following" to the coexistence stage of "following, running and leading". In 2021, China's total labor productivity will be 16500 dollars/person, higher than Vietnam (3905 dollars/person), India (6688 dollars/person) and other countries and regions, but only 14% of the United States, 20% of the European Union, and 18% of Japan. Facing the future, in order to ensure the stability of the supply chain, it is necessary to further strengthen the scale advantage and system advantage of the industry, enhance the innovation ability, high-end manufacturing ability and infrastructure, and improve the modernization level of the industrial chain supply chain.

(3) Focus on promoting coordinated industrial and regional development

The adjustment of productivity distribution is an important way to optimize the industrial structure, integrate resources and expand the market. In the new era, China is accelerating the formation of a regional economic layout and land space system supported by major regional development strategies, regional coordinated development strategies, main function zone strategies, and new urbanization strategies. The industry needs to accelerate to adapt to the changes in the spatial structure of economic development, actively integrate into the trend of regional adjustment, and build new development advantages in industrial development and upgrading, undertaking and transfer.

1. Promote industrial transfer in regional coordination

Supported by the development strategy of the Yangtze River Economic Belt, the ecological protection and high-quality development strategy of the Yellow River basin, the country is accelerating the longitudinal coordinated development of the Yangtze River and Yellow River basins. The highly complementary resource endowments and industrial structure, the deep correlation between cultural traditions and consumer markets, and the synergy of ecological protection and environmental governance make the basin economy an important scene of cross regional industrial cooperation in the new era. For example, the textile industry in Sichuan and Zhejiang have formed the industrial integration development model of "Zhejiang enterprises+Sichuan market", "Zhejiang capital+Sichuan resources", "Zhejiang R&D+Sichuan manufacturing", and "Zhejiang industry chain+Sichuan elements", and constantly strengthen cooperation in policy. Under the framework of basin economy, we should promote trans regional transfer led by large enterprises and major projects, and drive the development of central and western regions and border areas with industrial development. On the other hand, urban agglomeration is becoming the main spatial carrier of China's modern industrial system. With the urban renewal and the change of functional orientation, the infrastructure of the central city continues to extend to the surrounding areas, and a number of high-quality industrial resources with SMEs as the core have begun to accelerate the migration to the surrounding areas. For example, in the process of undertaking the transfer of Hangzhou's clothing industry, Haining and Xucun have achieved leapfrog development in the clothing industry; Guangzhou Zhongda textile processing and manufacturing industry has transferred to Qingyuan, and a modern textile industry cluster is accelerating its rise. We should accelerate the building of world-class industrial clusters and high-end manufacturing centers in the process of urban renewal and industrial replacement to form global influence and leadership.

2. Developing industrial clusters in the process of urban-rural integration

Promoting rural revitalization in an all-round way is a strategic deployment made by the Party Central Committee with a view to building a modern socialist power in an all-round way. Industrial revitalization is the top priority of rural revitalization. The state has introduced a series of policies and measures to promote the convergence and transformation of industries between urban and rural areas. Under the guidance of policies, the institutional channels for the free flow of urban and rural elements have been basically opened, and the land, labor, customs, natural scenery and other resources in the county rural areas have been constantly activated. The survey report on migrant workers in 2021 shows that 162 million migrant workers are employed in the county, accounting for 55% of the total number of migrant workers in China. The county area, where about half of China's population lives, is forming a market depth for the future development of the industry. The textile industry cluster is a key node connecting urban and rural areas, which plays a special role in building a new industrial relationship of mutual promotion and coordinated development between industry and agriculture. By the end of 2021, the textile industry output value of 211 pilot industrial clusters of China Textile Federation reached 3.77 trillion yuan, employed more than 7 million people, and the total number of enterprises exceeded 250000, making outstanding contributions to local steady growth, people's livelihood and employment. The development of industrial clusters has strategic value for consolidating and expanding the achievements of poverty alleviation and preventing large-scale poverty alleviation. From the perspective of cluster development at this stage, the number of clusters in the five eastern provinces of Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Guangdong, Shandong, Fujian, etc. accounts for 70% of the industry. In the future, the work of the industry should be further extended to the central and western regions and border ethnic minority areas, to improve people's livelihood with livelihood industries, and to promote common prosperity and border stability.

4、 Cohesion, truth-seeking and pragmatic, and do a good job in industry services in 2023

2023 is the first year to fully implement the spirit of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, and the year to start the new journey of building a socialist modern country in an all-round way. China Textile Federation will study, publicize and implement the spirit of the 20th CPC National Congress as the primary political task of the textile industry at present and in the future. Adhere to the principle of seeking truth from facts, respecting the law, systematic concept and bottom line thinking, and integrate the industry's understanding and action into the tasks defined at the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, as well as the economic work deployment and requirements for next year determined by the Central Economic Work Conference.
