Zhang Guihua said in his speech that the main strategic direction of China’s new energy vehicle development is to transform the core and key technologies of the industry. Efforts must be made in establishing and improving the industrial system and cultivate inter-disciplinary innovative talents, and create favourable policies for the development of the industry. As remarkable progresses had been already achieved in the industrial standards, manufacturers alliances, deployment of the presence of the enterprises relating to the industry, and relevant R&D, it is hopeful that the new energy vehicle industry will be able to shoulder the historic responsibility of “curve overtaking” in China’s automobile industry. He expected the new energy vehicle sector would adhere to independent innovation and especially give full play to the main roles of enterprises in innovation. They should stick to cross-border integration to guide innovation factors to break through the geographic restrictions. He cautioned that the principle of talent first must be followed and CAST organizational advantages of talent resources must be brought into full play, to provide solid and reliable talent support for the realization of building a nation with powerful automobile industry.
