After China's entry into WTO, how will China's tobacco industry adjust?
at present, the world economic integration is developing in depth. With China's entry into WTO, the domestic cigarette industry is undergoing more profound changes in the face of new rules and new market competition environment. With the fluctuation of the whole industry, cigarette packaging itself should be constantly adjusted. The following is an excerpt of some experts' analysis and suggestions on the future trend of China's tobacco industry for the reference and borrowing of packaging enterprises
accelerate the adjustment of enterprise structure and develop large-scale tobacco enterprise groups
according to China's national conditions, we should have new ideas for the establishment of large-scale tobacco enterprise groups. We should establish large-scale tobacco industry enterprise leaders that can compete with foreign tobacco groups within 5 to 10 years, and establish 3 to 5 large-scale cross regional national tobacco enterprise groups, with the group's tobacco production and sales scale reaching more than 3million boxes. At present, Hongta Group and Jiangjun group, for example, have merged tobacco enterprises across provinces, and have begun to take shape as a large-scale tobacco enterprise group in China. Production enterprises with a large production scale of 200000 to 800000 cartons are gradually moving closer to large tobacco groups. Large industrial enterprises and established local tobacco enterprise groups are encouraged to unite, and those with real development potential are merged and expanded with high speed and high efficiency. Small cigarette factories with an annual output of less than 200000 cases that meet the conditions for bankruptcy will be forced to close down, production sites will be cancelled, their production plans will be readjusted and distributed, and priority will be given to large cigarette enterprises with an annual output of more than 800000 cases. For small and medium-sized cigarette enterprises with an annual output of less than 200000 boxes and still profitable, they are classified into established tobacco groups in batches. If the conditions are ripe, their legal person status will be cancelled, and production sites will be established, or production sites will be cancelled through economic compensation. With the market goal of "focusing on the domestic market, supplemented by the international market" within 5 years, it has the ability to compete with multinational companies in China. In the medium and long term, it adheres to the strategy of paying equal attention to the international and domestic markets. It can compete with foreign tobacco groups in the international market by building factories or annexing foreign tobacco enterprises and establishing marketing networks in foreign countries, and by building factories or annexing foreign tobacco enterprises and establishing marketing in foreign countries
using WTO rules to protect national tobacco enterprises
China's accession to the WTO as a developing country can apply the "infant industry protection principles" agreed by the WTO to strive for a 10-year buffer period. During this period, we will increase structural adjustment, increase our enthusiasm for the cause and strengthen our enterprise strength. After China's entry into WTO, the "safeguard clause" can be used to impose temporary import restrictions on some imported tobacco monopoly commodities. China has promised to liberalize the ban on cigarette import and gradually cancel the quota of raw and auxiliary materials, but there are corresponding mechanisms and measures behind the commitment. Other measures can be used to take measures against these commitments, such as setting up barriers to economic and technical conditions, engaging in the management of tobacco monopoly products by China Tobacco Import and Export Group, and indirectly controlling the total import volume. Technical barriers to trade are recognized and widely adopted in the field of international trade. Therefore, China should deeply study the measures of tobacco technical barriers to trade, and apply the open technical barriers to trade in the field of international trade, including technical indicators, laws, regulations and other means to legally restrict foreign tobacco groups
accelerate technological innovation of enterprises and adjust the structure of cigarette products
among tobacco products, flue-cured tobacco cigarettes are the characteristics and advantages of China. At present, foreign tobacco groups are interested in the market potential of China's flue-cured tobacco cigarettes and design products specifically for the Chinese market. They want to seize the Chinese market and open a breakthrough first. 5. China should continue to strengthen the scientific and Technological Development and technological innovation of flue-cured cigarettes, reduce the tar content of products, strengthen marketing, maintain the monopoly position of Domestic Flue-cured cigarettes in the market, and never allow the investment of flue-cured cigarettes due to the development of international mainstream cigarette products. In the world market, blended cigarettes are international popular products, accounting for 90% of the world tobacco products market. At present, the competitiveness of China's mixed cigarette products is weak and the development level is backward. Therefore, we should concentrate on the strength of the national tobacco industry in the material degradation industry, give priority to supporting large-scale tobacco groups, support mixed cigarettes of less than 8 brands, conduct intensive management, and take less brands and large-scale as the development direction. In the medium and short term, we should The processing and utilization of recycled materials has increased China's cigarette market share from 5% to 20%.
