BEIJING, Nov. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

The Forum on the Development of New Energy Vehicle Industry, one of the 
parallel forums of the 2021 World Manufacturing Convention, kicked off in 
Hefei, capital of east China's Anhui Province on Saturday.

At the forum, experts and enterprise representatives expressed that efforts 
should be made to accelerate technology progress and energy conservation in NEV 
industry with an attempt to achieve carbon neutrality goal.

China's automobile industry has yielded fruitful achievements in energy 
conservation and emission reduction in recent years. As of 2020, the 
production, sales and inventory of China's NEVs have topped the world for six 
consecutive years with the car stock of NEVs amounting to 6.78 million by the 
Q3 in 2021.

Improving the energy saving level and reducing fuel consumption of fuel 
vehicles is an important aspect of reducing carbon emissions in the automobile 
industry in the near future, said Li Yizhong, president of China Federation of 
Industrial Economics, adding that efforts should be made to promote the 
development of new energy vehicles in the medium and long term.

China has regarded the development of NEVs as an important measure to address 
climate change, promote green development and achieve carbon peak and 
neutrality, said Xu Yuchang, president of China Economic Information Service 

According to Shi Jianhua, deputy secretary-general of China Association of 
Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM), marketization is the core requirement for the 
development of the new energy automobile industry during the 14th Five-Year 
Plan period.

China can basically realize the goal that by 2025, the sales of new energy 
vehicles would account for 20 percent of the total sales of new vehicles, added 
Shi, and by 2035, pure electric vehicles would become the mainstream among new 
energy vehicle sales.

During the forum, a report on the high-quality development of China's NEV 
industry was jointly released by CEIS and CAAM, analyzing the current 
development status of the NEV industry at home and abroad, and proposing 
suggestions to accelerate the high-quality development of the industry.

The forum is hosted by the People's Government of Anhui Province, undertaken by 
Foreign Affairs Office of Anhui Provincial People's Government and CEIS, and 
supported by China Federation of Industrial Economics.
