Face the difficulties with firm confidence and strive forward
In the first half of 2022, the international environment has become more complex and grim, with sporadic outbreaks in some parts of China, the impact on our society and economy has exceeded expectations, and the economic pressure has increased further. The paper industry has suffered from a sharp decline in performance. In the face of the complex situation at home and abroad, we need to maintain our composure and confidence, actively cope with new problems and challenges, and believe that we can continue to ride the wind and waves, steady and long-term.

First, the paper industry suffered from poor performance in the first half of the year
According to the latest industry data, the output of paper and paperboard in January-June 2022 increased by only 400,000 tons compared with 67,425,000 tons in the same period of the previous period. Operating revenue was up 2.4% year on year, while total profit was down 48.7% year on year. This figure means that the profits of the whole industry in the first half of this year were only half of last year’s. At the same time, the operating cost increased by 6.5%, the number of loss-making enterprises reached 2,025, accounting for 27.55% of the country’s paper and paper products enterprises, more than a quarter of the enterprises in the state of loss, the total loss reached 5.96 billion yuan, a year-on-year growth of 74.8%. watch box
At the enterprise level, a number of listed companies in the paper industry recently announced their performance forecasts for the first half of 2022, and many of them are expected to reduce their profits by 40% to 80%. The reasons are mainly concentrated in three aspects: – the impact of the epidemic, the rise of raw material prices, and the weakening of consumer demand.
In addition, the international supply chain is not smooth, domestic logistics control and other adverse factors, leading to the rise of logistics costs. Overseas pulp plant construction is insufficient, imported pulp and wood chip costs are rising year-on-year and other reasons. And high energy costs, resulting in increased unit costs of products, etc. Mailer box
Paper industry this development is blocked, generally speaking, mainly due to the impact of the epidemic in the first half of the year. Relative to 2020, the current difficulties are temporary, predictable, and solutions can be found. In a market economy, confidence means expectation, and it is important for enterprises to have firm confidence. “Confidence is more important than gold.” The difficulties facing the industry are basically the same. Only with full confidence can we solve the current difficulties in a more positive attitude. Confidence mainly comes from the strength of the country, the resilience of the industry and the potential of the market.
Second, confidence comes from a strong country and a resilient economy
China has the confidence and ability to maintain a medium-high growth rate.
Confidence comes from the strong leadership of the CPC Central Committee. The founding aspiration and mission of the Party is to seek happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation for the Chinese nation. Over the past century, the Party has united and led the Chinese people through numerous difficulties and dangers, and made China grow rich from standing up to becoming strong.
In contrast to the global economic downturn, China’s economic growth is expected to be optimistic. The World Bank expects China’s GDP to grow above 5% again next year or two. The global optimism on China is rooted in the strong resilience, huge potential and wide room for manoeuvre of the Chinese economy. There is a basic consensus in China that the fundamentals of the Chinese economy will remain sound in the long run. Confidence in China’s economic development is still strong, mainly because the Chinese economy has strong confidence. Candle box
Our country has super-large scale market advantage. China has a population of over 1.4 billion and a middle-income group of over 400 million. Demographic dividend is working. With the growth of our economy and the rapid improvement of people’s living standards, the per capita CDP has exceeded $10,000. The super-large market is the biggest base for China’s economic growth and enterprise development, and also the reason why the paper industry has a huge development space and a promising future, which provides the paper industry with room to maneuver and wiggle room to deal with the adverse effects.

The country is speeding up the construction of a unified large market. China has a huge market advantage and huge potential for domestic demand. The country has a far-sighted and timely strategic approach. In April 2022, the CPC Central Committee and The State Council issued the Opinions on Speeding up the Building of a Large Unified National Market, calling for accelerating the building of a large unified national market to boost consumer confidence and truly smooth the flow of goods. With the implementation and implementation of policies and measures, the scale of the domestic unified large market is further expanded, the domestic whole industrial chain is more stable, and finally promote the transformation of the Chinese market from large to strong. Papermaking industry should seize the opportunity of domestic market expansion and realize a leapfrog development. Wig box

No matter how the international situation changes, we paper industry must unswervingly do their own thing, with solid and effective work to promote the recovery of enterprise development. At present, the impact of the epidemic is moderating. If there is no major recurrence in the second half of the year, it can be expected that our economy will have a significant rebound in the second half of the year and next year, and the paper industry will once again emerge from a wave of growth trend.
