LiuGong Chairman Invited to Attend International Belt and Road Forum
15 May 2017
Today, the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF) was held in Beijing. The BRF is the highest level of international conference held by China since the major initiative of the “Belt and Road” was put forward by President Xi Jinping in 2013. The forum has attracted 28 heads of state and government as well as people from enterprises, institutions, organizations and the media. Chairman Zeng Guang’an of LiuGong Group was invited to attend the forum.
“LiuGong has fully prepared to meet the opportunities and challenges of the Belt and Road initiative. We have actually been doing business along the B&R countries for a very long time.” Chairman Zeng shared during an interview of CNBC.
LiuGong started its globalization early in 2003, and now has one of the strongest global dealer networks to support its business worldwide. In the Belt & Road countries, LiuGong has set up business networks in 49 of the 65 countries involved, and there are 5 overseas subsidiaries including 2 manufacturing facilities in India and Poland to back up its dealers and customers in the region. “LiuGong has committed to provide professional and localized service to customers ensuring parts and service availability” Zeng added.
As the first company in China to begin manufacturing heavy equipment and the producer of China’s first modernized wheel loader, LiuGong has evolved into an international full line equipment provider. Its 15 product lines not only provide solutions to different application needs, but also were fully able to deal with the complexity and extreme demands of the B&R countries’ construction needs. “Our intuitive machines can be reliably operated anywhere and easily maintained in the middle of nowhere.” said Zeng Guagn’an. The statement has been proved in several projects along the B&R countries including China-Laos railway construction, PMK expressway in Pakistan and China-Myanmar gas pipeline project.
“The Belt and Road construction has been integrated into LiuGong’s 13th five-year strategy. And we know that talent is an integral to success. At LiuGong, we have built a strong and dedicated support team that understands the needs of local market and can ensure the usably of our machines,” Zeng said proudly.
After 60 years’ development, LiuGong has become an international company with overseas sales revenue accounting for almost 30% of company’s total sales revenue. Zeng attributes its success to the cooperation of LiuGong and its dealers & partners. “LiuGong will enhance this cooperation to build a closer and stronger relationship with all partners under the concept of shared benefits and win-win principle. This will bring more benefits to LiuGong’s customers not only in B&R countries, but also worldwide.”
