ASEAN delegation supports Dingli strategy
By Euan Youdale04 August 2015
A delegation from ASEAN (the Association of South East Asian Nations) has visited Chinese manufacturer Dingli’s new 83000 square metre factory.
The visit represents the importance Dingli has placed on international development and in its support of the government’s One Belt One Road initiative.
One Belt One Road is a development strategy by the Chinese government focusing on connecting and cooperating with countries primarily in Eurasia. It consists of two main components, the land-based Silk Road Economic Belt (SREB) and sea-based Maritime Silk Road (MSR). The strategy underlines China's push to broaden the country’s social and economic relations with its neighbouring countries and the wider world.
The ASEAN delegation included leading representatives from China, the Philippines, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar and Malaysia.
A Dingli spokesman said, “We cherish the development opportunities and new hope for our company brought by the distinguished ASEAN guests. Especially we hope that it can help us implement our three-step plan in ASEAN: the first step is to look for long-term agents for expanding sales; the second is to set up offices to provide direct service; the third is to set up branches and factories in stable country markets for direct production or technical support.”
