Dinglong Executive Director, Mr. Daniel Zhou, said that China's packaging industry is in a new stage of transition. The future is efficient, intelligent, and uses big data to control manufacturing. He estimates that 99% of secondary plants will need to be changed. With these inevitable adjustments, individuality and diverse methods will be important for companies to raise their level of competitiveness.
Mr. Daniel Zhou said that he is very confident about the future of the packaging industry. Undoubtedly, China is the leader in the packaging industry, taking up a large market share. However, because of early reckless expansion efforts, the market is oversaturated and competition is cut-throat. China has the largest market for packaging, but companies need to reflect on how to achieve more long-term development.
Over the next 3-5 years, Dinglong needs to move forward with a sense of responsibility and a sense of national dignity, in order to adapt to the changes and transitions. Our past achievements have become history, now we must decide whether to continue to grow. In order to grow, we must first be critical of ourselves and cut off any inefficiencies. Change is a painful process, but only through experiencing this pain can we live a better tomorrow.
Dinglong has an experienced management team. In the face of an uncertain future, we must focus on specializing and improving the quality of our products. Many companies were lost when they entered into the capital market. Daniel Zhou expressed that Dinglong Machinery needs to focus on automation, information systems, and intelligence in order to stand out in the industry. Dinglong Machinery has always insisted on being humble. We must always learn. Europe has developed earlier than we have and now with more advanced than us. The knowledge of foreign countries is worth researching and learning from. However, under the China’s national conditions, we should integrate their strengths but not copy. We should pay more attention to the customer needs which should be the foundation of our research modifications. We have a group of highly professional technicians with their own unique judgment and ideas. The developments of Japan, Europe, and America are ahead of China’s, and so their development process is worth studying. We are closing the gap between the other more developed countries, so Dinglong has committed to measures moving in the right direction.
