Speeding up the Process of Co-construction, Win-win and Joint Assistance of Industrial Development

High-quality joint venture and cooperation are a proper way of BAIC’s high-quality development.

In addition, the 4 millionth engine rolled off the production line in the first quarter of this year. Thus, Beijing Benz officially entered the "double four million" era. Since then, Beijing Benz has formed a strong product matrix consisting of 11 models.

BAIC will accelerate its speed. Although the unprecedented changes in a century have brought more challenges, BAIC is well aware that the fundamentals of China's long-term economic improvement will not change. To make improvements at difficult places, BAIC adheres to being innovation-driven, and integrates the initial intention of "making good vehicles" into the higher pursuit of natural harmony and into the larger stage shared by people in the world.

 With Strong Guidance, BAIC Sticks to Overcoming Difficult Problems 

Although there are a number of difficult problems, what we need to do is to find and deal with the main problems. 

In the face of the unprecedented profound change of high-quality development, the Party Committee of BAIC Group gives full play to its leading role, bravely shoulder the burden, and dares to overcome difficult problems. Based on the strategic positioning of the capital, it promotes the three-year action of state-owned enterprise reform, constantly solve the bottleneck problems that hinder high-quality development, and release the vitality of enterprise development with the reform deepening the market-oriented mechanism and system.

"As an economy, BAIC should have the organizational ability to face market competition"

In face of the constraints such as complex organizational system, slow market response and insufficient power of combat units, BAIC will build a more professional, efficient and mobile organizational structure and operation mode as a breakthrough.

This year, on the basis of measures such as building the headquarters of "four centers", integrating R&D resources, and adjusting key third-level enterprises to second-level enterprises under direct management, BAIC further strengthens the organizational change of "building self-owned brands efficiently", constantly breaks down functional barriers, gives the greatest resources and management support in R&D, production, marketing and other aspects, and enhances the market adaptability.

Meanwhile, through the development of the business performance appraisal scheme of "one policy for one enterprise", BAIC has formed targeted and refined guidance, supervision and control, especially the value creation-oriented rewards and punishments and clear and timely incentives, gradually forming a market competition atmosphere of "doing things and accomplishing things" in the whole system. Thus, vitality of enterprise is further enhanced.

"Let employees see the value of struggle and be more willing to strive for value creation"

Reform is not only the reform of organization, but also the reform of people's minds.

For some time, BAIC has intensified the innovation of cadre talent management to further liberate all kinds of talents from the rules and regulations by promoting the tenure and contractual management of managers, improving the market-oriented performance appraisal and salary management system, speeding up the promotion and demotion of middle-level leading cadres and the selection and employment of professional managers. The Group headquarters promotes the reform of job determination, post determination and staffing, so a number of young people take to important positions ...

A series of "combination measures" have broken the cognition of "big pot rice" and "iron rice bowl" of state-owned enterprises that are left in many people's minds.

"As long as you are willing to work hard, there will be hope. Now employees are more energetic to do things!" The heartfelt wishes of the vast majority of cadres and workers are just a response to the employment orientation of BAIC, such as "supporting the strugglers" and "winning respect with professionalism". The talent vitality of the enterprise is further enhanced.

"BAIC should focus on the three main businesses of complete vehicles, parts and services, and speed up the structural reform on the supply side."

In the past six months, BAIC sped up the adjustment of industrial structure, further increased the self-owned brand of commercial vehicles, actively promoted the transformation and breakthrough development of Changhe Automobile's "passenger vehicle-to-commercial vehicle" business, and built the strategic base with BAIC heavy trucks as commercial vehicles in the south. It sped up the withdrawal of non-main business sectors and inferior enterprises that should be withdrawn, such as aviation, agriculture and real estate. It took the initiative to adapt it to the development of new energy automotive industry and the switching between the 5th national standard and the 6th national standard, and took many measures to open up the inventory conversion channel. Under a series of measures focusing on the main business and keeping fit, BAIC's industrial layout has become clearer, and its resource vitality has been further enhanced.

While creating economic value, the Party Committee of BAIC shouldered the responsibility, and actively practiced the responsibility of state-owned enterprises in the implementation of major national and capital strategies, the holding of major events, the construction of ecological civilization, and social harmony and progress.

In the first half of this year, BAIC successfully completed the service assurance tasks for major events such as the Beijing Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games, the National People's Congress, the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, the Beijing Municipal People's Congress and the Beijing Municipal People's Political Consultative Conference. Under the pressure of development, it was estimated that more than 2,400 people would be recruited to contribute to stable employment. It urgently deployed negative pressure ambulances and pandemic prevention materials to donate to the areas affected by the pandemic. Enterprises in Beijing actively responded to the requirements of pandemic prevention and control in the capital, and the vast majority of cadres and workers didn’t stop work while staying at home, and didn’t leave their responsibilities while leaving their posts. They fought against the pandemic in double lines. 

The Party Committee of BAIC Group bravely assumes responsibility at major moments, takes the right direction at critical moments, and calmly responds to crises. Thanks to the strong guidance of the Party Committee of BAIC Group, "hard bones" that restrict development have been gradually dismantled, the management system has been revitalized, and superior resources have been concentrated, so this "blueprint" of high-quality development is guaranteed to be completed.

Keeping the Original Intentions Unchanged and Always Retaining the Spirit of Doing Things 

"With the spirit of courageously striving for the lead, we can make a vigorous career."

In the "big battles" and "hard battles" such as fighting for a "good start", pandemic prevention and control, steady production and guaranteed supply, Party members of BAIC practice their original intentions with actions, and unite the forces with their responsibilities. At the critical moment, they can be relied on, withstand and win a triumph. 

In May, the requirements for pandemic prevention were strictly implemented and the on-the-job rate was strictly controlled in Beijing automotive research and development base. Beijing Automotive Technology Center issued a solicitation order at the first time, and more than 300 engineers enthusiastically signed up. Finally, 35 employees were selected to enter the base, and a temporary Party branch of “point company ensuring the R & D” was quickly established. They would stationed there under lockdown for nearly a month, ensuring there is no stop of R & D projects.

In face of the pressure of steady production during the pandemic, Wang Kai, a red collar shift leader at Beijing Benz, actively carried out the full skill training for the shift and team posts and continuously improved the production and operation capacity while leading the team to complete the engine production task with quality and quantity. He and more red collar shift leaders gathered into a red force of steady production.

After receiving the feedback that the goods may be stranded in the risk area, Zhongdu logistics affiliated to BAIC Rocar quickly took actions. It established a commando team of Party members and a supply guarantee project team, refined the division of labor, carried out mobile operations, established a "driver + vehicle source" transportation resource pool, and enabled temporary transit warehouses and sites to ensure that the goods were delivered to customers on time.

To ensure the safe and steady operation of the battery swap stations in all districts of Beijing, BAIC marketing corporation played the role of a fighting fortress of the branch. It selected a skeleton force of Party members, and formed a special inspection team for the safe operation of the battery swap stations. The inspection team inspected 25 battery swap stations in operation in Beijing, ensuring the orderly operation of each battery swap station and improving customer service level and satisfaction.

For a consumer to choose and buy a vehicle during the pandemic, BAIC Rocar's front-line sales personnel would "send the vehicle to the customer’s home, pick him/her up by special car, watch the vehicle by video, and deliver the vehicle home". The after-sales maintenance team has set up a critical group of Party members against machine maintenance to ensure efficient service.

In this action of all people against the pandemic, 100 Party members, cadres and workers of BAIC went to the communities (villages) and incarnated as "Dabai" and "Xiaolan" to measure body temperatures, make registrations, and send materials... Together with grass-roots pandemic prevention personnel, they guarded Beijing and the citizens, and gathered into a "BAIC force" holding fast to the front line of the "epidemic"

During the pandemic, Beijing Hyundai Volunteer Service Team provides services for medical staff to travel.

A Party member is a banner, and a branch is a fortress. BAIC, a team that dares to fight hard and win battles, has always cast its mission and responsibility into every bit of its entrepreneurial work, bravely shouldering heavy burdens, tackling difficulties and fighting hard, and firmly holding its destiny in its own hands.

BAIC believes in the power of faith. In this era full of opportunities and challenges, BAIC is convinced that what the Party banner points to is the direction of victory. The more difficult it is, the more we should move forward.

On the new journey, BAIC will persist in opening up the future with innovation. It will unswervingly deepen the reform, and forge ahead bravely with the aim of "making good vehicles". It will make greater contributions to the economic and social development in the capital with high-quality development and new achievements, and forge ahead to meet the successful holding of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China!
