Africa, as an important stop in the countries and regions that the "Belt and Road" passes through, is definitely a land full of opportunities and magic for Chinese operators!
Recently, Chen Guanda, Secretary-General of Zhejiang Fastener Industry Technology Alliance and Chairman of China Tight Media, delivered a keynote speech at the Suzhou Bicycle and Electric Vehicle Association Member Conference and the Shanghai Hardware Merchants Association Group Meeting to convey business opportunities!
China adheres to the basic national policy of opening up to the outside world and is deeply integrated into the world economic system. With the "Vision and Actions for Promoting the Joint Construction of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road" issued by the three ministries and commissions authorized by the State Council, Africa is clearly regarded as one of the implementation areas of the "Belt and Road" strategy. In recent years, enterprises choose the "going out" development strategy, which is an important measure to expand the development space, and also meets the needs of the country's foreign strategy. Promoting the construction of the "Belt and Road" is not only the need for China to deepen opening up and industrial transformation and upgrading, but also the need for mutually beneficial cooperation between Asian, European and African countries, especially China and African countries.
The future development of Africa is inseparable from external investment. As an important economy in the world, China has become a trend to invest in Africa and seek development in Africa. State-owned enterprises and private enterprises are playing an increasingly important role on the economic and social stage of Africa. Investment and import and export trade with Africa are showing a rapid development trend.
Not only in terms of natural and human resources, Africa has a unique advantage. For the hardware industry, including fasteners, or bicycle electric vehicles, rail industry and other aspects have a large market gap and demand.
Recently, Chen Guanda, Secretary-General of Zhejiang Fastener Industry Technology Alliance and Chairman of China Tight Media, was invited to attend the Suzhou Bicycle and Electric Vehicle Association Member Conference and the Shanghai Hardware Industry Association New Year Group Meeting, and gave a speech on "Under the 'Belt and Road', the keynote speech of the industry's business opportunities in Africa" opened the African "horizon" for business operators and guided enterprises to "go global", and the response was enthusiastic.
In fact, China Tight Media began its market research and investigation in Africa in the early years, and began to lay out the African market. Africa, where beauty and opportunity coexist, has become an important strategic highland for the development of various industries!

The average unit price of bicycle exports is 97 US dollars, far higher than the national average unit price of 60 US dollars. The output of electric bicycles was 550000, up 1 year on year; the export of electric bicycles was 290000, up 6, and the export value of electric bicycles was 0.21 billion US dollars, up 8. The average unit price of electric bicycles was 721 US dollars. The export value of spare parts was 0.343 billion US dollars, up 2% year on year.
At the meeting, Chen Guanda vividly described the great business opportunities in the African market to the guests present. Due to various historical reasons, the bicycle and electric vehicle industries on the African continent have been relatively backward, or the entire bicycle and electric vehicle system has not yet taken shape. It is currently dependent on imports. In addition, many countries in Africa encourage the development of bicycle and electric vehicle industries, and increase investment in bicycle and electric vehicle industries. In Tanzania, Uganda and other countries, Chinese companies have begun to set up assembly plants and have received shockingly good returns. Among the 1.2 billion population in Africa, young adults under the age of 25 account for more than half of the total population, and 10 million new labor force is added every year. Since 2000, Africa's GDP growth has remained above 9.5 per cent for 10 consecutive years, and Africa will become the next world economic growth pole. Under this trend, the African bicycle and electric vehicle industry will enter a period of rapid development. If Chinese manufacturers and sellers of bicycles and electric vehicles can seize the opportunity, they will be able to develop greatly.
