Over the past 30 years, the CICEIA has seriously performed its responsibilities, forged ahead with determination, and made significant progress in various aspects. Notably, it has played a due role in promoting the industry's energy conservation and emission reduction, transformation and upgrading, and innovation in products and technologies, which strongly accelerates the transformation of China's internal combustion engine industry from rapid growth to high-quality development.
Yan Ping indicated that for three decades, China's internal combustion engine industry has seen remarkable development. For example, the production and sales volume of internal combustion engines have taken first place in the world for more than 10 consecutive years. The internal combustion engine industry has been a vital basic fulcrum of China's national economy and national defense construction, making great contributions to guaranteeing China's strategic energy security and response to climate change. In the future, there will be new opportunities for high-quality development of the internal combustion engine industry in China. Under the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, the CICEIA and the whole industry will focus on national strategic needs, put emphasis on the supply-side structural reform, implement the innovation-driven development strategy, speed up efforts to foster the new development paradigm with domestic circulation as the mainstay and domestic and international circulations reinforcing each other, constantly promote the industrial transformation from an industry of diverse powers and fuels to a green, electric, intelligent, digital, internet-based, and lightweight industry with diverse powers and fuels, continue to solve weak links of the industry chain of key core technologies and key parts and components, further strengthen the international industrial layout and the international branding, strive to realize the gearing of China's internal combustion engine industry to the advanced international community at the end of the 14th Five-year Plan, and make unremitting efforts to facilitate China to build strength in the internal combustion engine industry, prosper national industry, and realize the Chinese Dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
As an important member of China's internal combustion engine industry, Yuchai has always aimed to realize technological innovation in increasing the thermal efficiency of internal combustion engines and reducing energy consumption. From China I to China VI engines, Yuchai has taken the lead in launching new energy-saving and environmentally-friendly products. Meanwhile, Yuchai has made efforts to protect the environment, reduce energy and emission through intelligent manufacturing, application of green process and materials, and implementation of environmental governance, recycling, and remanufacturing, and given impetus to the great development of China's internal combustion engine industry and the technical progress of the world's internal combustion engine industry. At the celebration, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Co., Ltd. was awarded the honorary title of "Excellent Enterprise for the 30-year Internal Combustion Engine Business" by the CICEIA, Yan Ping was awarded the "Outstanding Entrepreneur" and Wu Qiwei, President of Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Co., Ltd. was awarded "the CICEIA's Excellent Person".
