“In the third quarter of last year, (my country’s) industrial growth rate once declined. In the fourth quarter, with the implementation of our policies and measures to stimulate the industrial economy, the effect showed, the downward trend was reversed, and the growth rate of the industrial economy gradually picked up.” On January 20, in Tian Yulong, chief engineer and spokesman of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said at a press conference held by the State Council Information Office. He pointed out that in 2021, my country’s industrial transformation and upgrading will be significantly accelerated, the relief efforts of small and medium-sized enterprises will increase efficiency, and the information and communication industry will also achieve a new leap.
Tian Yulong said that in 2022, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will focus on the goal of building a strong manufacturing country and a strong network country, placing stable industrial growth in the most important position, doing pre-adjustment fine-tuning and cross-cycle adjustment, focusing on improving the core competitiveness of the manufacturing industry, and promoting The industrial economy will run smoothly, improve quality and efficiency, keep the proportion of the manufacturing industry basically stable, strengthen and optimize the real economy, and build a solid economic “ballast stone”.
The added value of industrial enterprises above designated size increased by 9.6% year-on-year.A total of 1.425 million 5G base stations have been built and opened
Tian Yulong introduced that last year, the added value of industries above designated size increased by 9.6% year-on-year, with an average growth of 6.1% in the two years. Under the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has overcome all kinds of difficulties. Last year’s industrial and economic development was generally good, and the results were gratifying and hard-won.
In terms of industrial transformation and upgrading, my country’s “5G+Industrial Internet” has formed 20 typical application scenarios and practical activities in 10 key industry fields, and its innovative application level is in the first echelon in the world. The green transformation of traditional industries has been steadily advanced, and the cumulative output of crude steel for the year has decreased by 32 million tons or 3% year-on-year. In the first 11 months, the energy consumption per unit of added value of industrial enterprises above designated size decreased by 5.5% year-on-year. Industrial software, big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and other new technologies, new industries, and new business formats have experienced strong growth rates. The rapid development of new energy vehicles, the production and sales of more than 3.5 million last year, a year-on-year increase of 1.6 times.
In terms of small and medium-sized enterprises, at present, there are more than 40,000 specialized, specialized and new enterprises nationwide, 4,762 “little giant” enterprises, and 848 single champion enterprises in the manufacturing industry. Innovative companies continue to emerge and grow.
In the information and communication industry, last year’s telecommunications business revenue increased by 8% year-on-year, and the software and information technology service industry revenue increased by 17.7% year-on-year. A total of 1.425 million 5G base stations have been built and opened, and 512,000 administrative villages across the country have fully realized “broadband access to every village”. At the same time, the innovation and expansion of industry supervision have achieved practical results. Significant progress has been made in some special projects such as the special rectification of the Internet industry, the special rectification of APPs infringing on the rights and interests of users, and the transformation of Internet applications for aging. The security foundation has been continuously consolidated, and the prevention and control of telecommunication network fraud, personal information protection, and data security management have also been steadily advanced.
When looking forward to the work in 2022, Tian Yulong also pointed out that the external environment we face is becoming more severe, complex and uncertain. The development of my country’s industrial economy is facing triple pressures of shrinking demand, supply shocks, and weakening expectations. The task of stabilizing growth is still very arduous.
“We are still satisfied in 2021, and we are confident in 2022. We still have many favorable conditions, including the growth rate of economic development. The overall development momentum is very good, and the epidemic prevention and control is also leading the world. Complete With a series of favorable conditions such as the industrial system and perfect supporting capabilities, economic resilience and potential, coupled with the implementation of macro and micro policies, I believe that the overall development trend of industry and informatization will not change in 2022, and the long-term improvement is basically the same. The face will not change.” Tian Yulong said.
The industrial chain and supply chain benefit from the effective prevention and control of the epidemic，Automotive chip supply still under strain
When asked about the impact of the epidemic’s “clearing policy” on the industrial chain and supply chain, Tian Yulong said that our economic growth, especially the growth of the industrial economy, these data show that our epidemic prevention and control policy has an impact on the industrial chain and supply chain. Advantageously, only by adhering to this correct epidemic prevention strategy can we take the lead in resuming work and production in the world, and the stability and security of the industrial chain and supply chain can be guaranteed.
“Of course, there are two aspects that you may be concerned about. We are now spreading the domestic epidemic in many places, and some cities have also adopted some controls, which may cause some damage to the industrial chain and supply chain in some areas in a short period of time. Local effects, but these effects are short-term and limited in scope, and have no major impact on the macro industry chain.” Tian Yulong pointed out, “Especially as our epidemic prevention and control policies become more and more precise, The impact of the industrial chain and supply chain, especially on industrial enterprises, should be small, and the stability and security of the industrial chain and supply chain can still be guaranteed.”
However, Tian Yulong also pointed out that the international epidemic is still spreading and has not been effectively controlled, so there are uncertainties in the external environment of the industrial chain and supply chain, which will have some impact on our country’s industrial chain and supply chain. Coordinating epidemic prevention and control with economic and social development, especially the development of the industrial economy, is still a key task this year.

When talking about the shortage of automotive chips, Luo Junjie, spokesman for the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and director of the Operation Monitoring and Coordination Bureau, pointed out that with the gradual effect of the market adjustment mechanism and the joint efforts of governments at all levels, auto companies, and chip companies, the “automobile industry” The problem of “lack of core” is gradually easing. However, we must also see that the stability of the global integrated circuit supply chain is still facing severe challenges. For a long period of time in the future, the supply of automotive chips will remain in a state of tension.
“The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has also been paying close attention to and actively responding to the problem of ‘lack of cores’ in automobiles. We have taken various measures to ensure the supply of chips and maintain the stable operation of the automobile industry.” Luo Junjie said, “In the next step, we will also work with relevant countries and The region should strengthen communication and cooperation, encourage domestic and foreign key enterprises to increase investment, and promote the improvement of the supply capacity of the entire chip industry chain.” He pointed out that, on the other hand, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will also make every effort to promote the free flow of factor resources and create a fair and just market. environment, promote the high-quality development of the integrated circuit industry, and help build an industrial system with global cooperation and win-win and symbiotic development.
The special rectification of APP’s infringement of user rights and interests is advanced in depth，The resilience of the digital economy is remarkable
When introducing the development of the information and communication industry in 2021, Zhao Zhiguo, spokesperson of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and director of the Information and Communication Administration, pointed out that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has built a national APP testing platform, with the ability to test 180,000 APPs every month, and carry out APP technology testing. The problems of “can’t close” and “random jump” of the pop-up information on the screen have been basically solved through rectification.

In addition, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology also organized a special rectification action for the Internet industry and an action to improve the perception of information and communication services. The compliance of corporate operations, the openness of industry ecology, and user experience satisfaction have been significantly improved. In-depth implementation of the classification and classification management of industrial Internet enterprise network security, optimizing the policy environment for the development of the network security industry, deepening the industry source governance, and preventing and controlling telecommunication network fraud have made great breakthroughs.
In terms of serving people’s livelihood, telecommunications universal services have been advanced in depth, and the historic realization of “broadband access to every village” in administrative villages across the country has helped more people get on the “digital train”. For special groups such as rural poverty-stricken households, we have carried out targeted fee reduction and other related work, and the cumulative profit has exceeded 8 billion, which has greatly reduced the cost of network use. The first batch of 217 websites and APPs closely related to the life of the elderly have completed aging-appropriate transformation and passed the evaluation, providing more comprehensive, caring and direct convenience services for the elderly.
Regarding the Winter Olympics, Zhao Zhiguo said that 5G technology is empowering the “smart Winter Olympics”, creating smart application products such as smart viewing, cloud broadcasting services, and smart venues to further enrich the viewing experience and improve event services and venue operations.
The rapid development of the information and communication industry has also brought a stronger impetus to the growth of the digital economy. Zhao Zhiguo said that 1.425 million 5G base stations have been opened in my country. The integration of our network industry applications has brought the development of the digital economy into a fast lane. The resilience of the development of the digital economy is also very remarkable. Last year, the business revenue of the software information technology service industry increased by 17.7%, ahead of the industry average. Because the development of the home economy, online economy and informatization brought about by the epidemic has entered the fast lane, the driving force and demand for the industry have emerged.
“The overall development trend of the digital economy is gratifying. In the future, we will, in accordance with the implementation of the requirements of the “14th Five-Year Plan for the Development of the Digital Economy” issued by the State Council, empower traditional industries with a new generation of information technology, cultivate new industries, new formats and new model.” Zhao Zhiguo said, “I believe that under the guidance of the plan, we will gather forces from all parties, coordinate resources from all parties, and solidly promote the rapid and stable development of the digital economy.”
