On Au­gust 3, 2017, Rus­sian pres­i­dent Putin at­tended the open­ing cer­e­mony of a gas pro­cess­ing plant. But why would Putin take the pro­cess­ing plant so se­ri­ously?

It was the day when the Rus­sian Amur Gas Pro­cess­ing Plant, un­der­taken by China’s Gezhouba Cor­po­ra­tion, was erected. This is the sec­ond large Sino- Rus­sian energy cor­ri­dor— the source of the east­ern Sino- Rus­sian gas pipe­line and one of the key pro­grams. The de­signed ca­pa­bil­ity is 42 bil­lion cu­bic me­ters, pro­duc­ing six mil­lion cu­bic me­ters of helium per year. It will be the big­gest gas pro­cess­ing plant in Rus­sia af­ter be­ing con­structed.

The head­quar­ter of the con­trac­tor China Gezhouba Cor­po­ra­tion is lo­cated in Wuhan City, Hubei Prov­ince.

Hubei Prov­ince is now faced with new op­por­tu­ni­ties of open­ing to the out­side world. To build open econ­omy, Hubei is im­pl­ment­ing the strate­gic goal of “Go­ing Global Pol­icy.”

The fol­low­ings are the best records of Hubei en­ter­prises which thrive abroad. Let' s witness

the rapid growth of Hubei en­ter­prises in the world mar­ket.

China Rail­way Ma­jor Bridge En­gi­neer­ing Group: Con­struc­tor of the “Dream Bridge”

Ly­ing to the south­west of Dhaka, the cap­i­tal city of Bangladesh, the Padma Mul­ti­pur­pose Bridge is 40 kilo­me­ters away from the city. The bridge that crosses the Padma River is a crit­i­cal point in the do­mes­tic traf­fic sys­tem and it is also a main path­way of the “Trans-Asian Rail­way” that con­nects China and South­east Asia. The Padma Bridge is hon­ored as a “Dream Bridge” that pro­motes the so­cial and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment of Bangladesh. It is China Rail­way Ma­jor Bridge En­gi­neer­ing Group Co., Ltd. that props up this dream.

The bridge that spans the Padma River will con­vert the nat­u­ral moat into a thor­ough­fare. 21 re­gions in the south­west­ern part of Bangladesh will be linked with the cap­i­tal city Dhaka, cut­ting the seven- hour com­mut­ing time down to ten min­utes. This will end the hun­dred-year his­tory of com­mut­ing by ferry be­tween the 21 re­gions and the cap­i­tal city.

The Padma Bridge is a com­bined high­way and rail­way bridge. The two-level steel truss bridge will carry a four- lane high­way on the up­per level and a sin­gle- track rail­way on the lower level. Build­ing this bridge, with the to­tal length of 6150 me­ters and the spans of 3800 me­ters, cost 1.55 bil­lion dol­lars— about RMB 9.67 bil­lion. It is the big­gest in­ter­na­tional bridge project un­der­taken by Chi­nese en­ter­prises. It is also the big­gest in­fra­struc­ture project in Bangladesh. Ac­cord­ing to the es­ti­ma­tion, the Padma Bridge will in­crease the GDP growth of Bangladesh by about 1.5%.

Un­fold­ing the world map, you can see that China Rail­way Ma­jor Bridge En­gi­neer­ing Group has built more than ten bridges in coun­tries along “the Belt and Road.” These bridges are mainly lo­cated in South­east Asia and Africa.

Build­ing bridges in for­eign coun­tries is far more dif­fi­cult than in China. In Zam­bia, Africa, where both the stan­dard of South Africa and the United States are adopted, the con­struc­tion is rig­or­ous and in­tri­cate. In Morocco, North Africa, di­ver­gences be­tween lo­cal and Chi­nese con­struc­tion team oc­cur in var­i­ous as­pects: the reg­u­la­tions, the stan­dards, the tools, and even the mea­sur­ing sys­tems are dif­fer­ent.

From the cross-sea bridges to the cross-con­ti­nent bridges, China Rail­way Ma­jor Bridge En­gi­neer­ing

Group built one af­ter an­other land­mark bridges, thus ex­tend­ing the Chi­nese col­lab­o­ra­tions with the coun­tries along “the Belt and Road.”

China Rail­way Siyuan Sur­vey and De­sign Group: Driv­ing China’s high- speed trains to the world

China high- speed rail­way has be­come a shin­ing card which marks that “Made in China” has “Gone Out.” China Rail­way Siyuan Sur­vey and De­sign Group Co., Ltd. is the main force in the de­sign­ing of China’s high-speed rail­way.

En­ter­ing the Nige­rian mar­ket in 1996, China Rail­way Siyuan Sur­vey and De­sign Group Co., Ltd. has fol­lowed the ma­jor na­tional strate­gies over a twenty- year span, tak­ing part in the con­struc­tion of 30 projects in 18 coun­tries in Africa, Asia, South Amer­ica, and Europe.

On Oc­to­ber 5, 2016, the first elec­tric rail­way in Africa, the Ethio- Dji­bouti Rail­way ( Ethiopi­aDji­bouti) was com­pleted. It was the first “sini­cized” whole in­dus­try chain rail­way project in a for­eign coun­try. China Rail­way Siyuan Sur­vey and De­sign Group de­signed all the rail­way lines through­out Dji­bouti.

The rail­way was de­signed to run at 120 kilo­me­ters per hour, which is only a stan­dard­speed rail­way in China. How­ever, the for­eign ex­perts raised doubt about the fea­si­bil­ity, con­sid­er­ing the poor in­fra­struc­ture, lim­ited elec­tric­ity, scarce ce­ment, and high as­so­ciated costs in the lo­cal area. How could Chi­nese en­ter­prises com­plete such a project?

Af­ter fif­teen months of drudgery, all the mea­sure­ment and de­sign were com­pleted by 22 tech­ni­cians from China Rail­way Siyuan Sur­vey and De­sign Group.

China Con­struc­tion Third En­gi­neer­ing Bureau: Build­ing the big­gest air­port in Pak­istan

Deeply ex­plor­ing for­eign mar­kets, China Con­struc­tion Third En­gi­neer­ing Bureau Co., Ltd. has achieved win- win co­op­er­a­tion with var­i­ous coun­tries.

Af­ter un­der­tak­ing the big­gest in­fra­struc­ture project of the “China-Pak­istan Eco­nomic Cor­ri­dor,” the Karachi- Pe­shawar Rail­way Line,

China Con­struc­tion Third En­gi­neer­ing Bureau won the bid again, un­der­tak­ing the re­con­struc­tion and ex­ten­sion EPC project of Al­la­maIqbal In­ter­na­tional Air­port (integrating de­sign, pur­chas­ing, and con­struc­tion). The bid­ding price was 41 bil­lion ru­pees, about RMB 2.64 bil­lion. Once com­pleted, the air­port will be the big­gest in Pak­istan, im­prov­ing the lo­cal in­fra­struc­ture, pro­mot­ing eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, strength­en­ing Sino-Pak­istan co­op­er­a­tion, and boost­ing cul­tural com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

Al­ge­ria en­trusted the project of build­ing the high­est, largest build­ing in Africa— Dja­maâ el Djazaïr—to China Con­struc­tion Third En­gi­neer­ing Bureau. The 3000 the­aters in Con­stan­tine for the 2015 Con­stan­tine Arab Cul­tural Fes­ti­val— called the “beat­ing hearts” of the fes­ti­val— were also con­structed by China Con­struc­tion Third En­gi­neer­ing Bureau.

China Con­struc­tion Third En­gi­neer­ing Bureau has formed their over­seas busi­ness struc­ture, de­vel­op­ing a “three- line pat­tern” which fo­cuses on high- end house- build­ing projects, power driven in­dus­try, and in­fra­struc­ture. In the last three years, its over­seas rev­enue has reached one bil­lion dol­lars, with projects ex­pand­ing to South Asia, South­east Asia and North Africa.

United In­vest­ment Group: In­vest­ment projects spread all over the world

In re­cent years, the United In­vest­ment Group has seized op­por­tu­ni­ties brought by the na­tional strat­egy, “the Belt and the Road,” fo­cus­ing on trans­fer­ring from “Hubei united in­vest­ment” to “world united in­vest­ment.” In Bel­gium, the con­struc­tion of China-Bel­gium Tech­nol­ogy Cen­ter (CBTC) started in 2016. Upon com­ple­tion, it will be the first Euro­pean tech­nol­ogy cen­ter in­vested by a Chi­nese en­ter­prise. The cen­ter is ex­pected to hold more than 200 Chi­nese en­ter­prises.

In Rus­sia, United In­vest­ment Group- Fuhan Wood In­dus­try built the China- Rus­sia Tomsk Wood In­dus­trial and Trade Co­op­er­a­tion Zone, gain­ing forty- year ad­min­is­tra­tion au­thor­ity of forests span­ning 5000 square kilo­me­ters and sup­ply­ing Chi­nese mar­ket. In Van­u­atu, a Pa­cific is­land na­tion lo­cated in the South Pa­cific Ocean, United In­vest­ment Group fo­cuses on

de­vel­op­ing the cater­ing in­dus­try, ho­tel in­dus­try, tourism in­fra­struc­ture, and other sup­port­ing ser­vices, tak­ing ad­van­tage of the abun­dant wood, agri­cul­ture, and tourism re­sources in the coun­try.

On Jan­uary 12, 2017, Hubei United In­vest­ment Group launched the first project in Australia, hold­ing the open­ing cer­e­mony of the United In­vest­ment El­e­gance in China. On March 25, the project started in Gold Coast. That is to say, United In­vest­ment Group had ex­tended its busi­ness to Australia af­ter mak­ing in­vest­ment in Rus­sia and Bel­gium. On the path of “Go­ing global,” United In­vest­ment Group is mov­ing an­other step for­ward.

Huaxin Ce­ment: The Pres­i­dent-wit­nessed big project.

In 2010, Huaxin Ce­ment cast eyes to the for­eign mar­ket, be­com­ing the fore­run­ner of China ce­ment in­dus­try that “go global.” In Au­gust, 2013, the Huaxin Ce­ment Plant in Ta­jik­istan be­gan operation, be­com­ing the first oversea plant in­vested by Chi­nese ce­ment com­pany. In 2013 and 2014, the com­pany was hon­ored as “The 2013 Best In­dus­trial En­ter­prise in Ta­jik­istan” and “The Most So­cially Re­spon­si­ble En­ter­prise” by Ta­jik­istan gov­ern­ment con­sec­u­tively. This up­lifted the im­age of Chi­nese en­ter­prises in the world mar­ket. In Septem­ber, 2014, wit­nessed by Pres­i­dent Emo­mali Rakhmon, the CEO of Huaxin Ce­ment, Li Ye­qing, signed the agree­ment with gov­ern­ment of­fi­cial of Ta­jik­istan. The So­get Project was started.

In the So­get Project, the ce­ment pro­duc­tion line used was in­de­pen­dently re­searched and de­vel­oped by Huaxin Ce­ment. Also, the first 25 megawatt coal- fired power unit and pure lowtem­per­a­ture co­gen­er­a­tion project were built. The lo­cal­iza­tion rate of large scale equip­ment reached 100%, sig­ni­fy­ing the Huaxin-made equip­ment with in­de­pen­dent in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty rights is head­ing to­ward the world.

On March 23, 2016, the sec­ond pro­duc­tion line which could pro­duce one mil­lion ton ce­ment clinker an­nu­ally was put into operation.

Ac­cord­ing to the plan, the num­ber of its oversea projects will reach 10 by 2020.

In re­cent years, the en­ter­prises of Hubei Prov­ince

have made enor­mous strides in­ter­na­tion­ally, and will be march­ing boldly on their way abroad. For ex­am­ple, five out of the top ten hy­dropower sta­tions across the world with the high­est in­stalled ca­pac­ity were built by China Three Gorges Projects De­vel­op­ment Co., Ltd.;

The foot­prints of Hubei Hongyuan Power En­gi­neer­ing Co., Ltd. can be seen in the 40 Latin Amer­i­can coun­tries and re­gions along “the Belt and Road”;

CCC Sec­ond Har­bour En­gi­neer­ing Com­pany Ltd. won var­i­ous projects in “the Belt and Road” pro­gram. The to­tal worth of the con­tracts reached RMB 4.5 bil­lion;

Dongfeng Mo­tor Cor­po­ra­tion ini­ti­ated its Rus­sia flag­ship store in Moscow, which be­came the first car shop of Chi­nese mo­tor en­ter­prises in Rus­sia;

An­gel Yeast Co., Ltd. set up shops in Egypt and Rus­sia, adding “the Hubei Fla­vor” to bread over half of the world;

Tri-ring Group pur­chased the big­gest Pol­ish bearing manufacturing com­pany, KFLT, and planned to rise among the top ten bearing manufacturing com­pany in the world...

We are proud of all these Hubei en­ter­prises with good rep­u­ta­tion in­ter­na­tion­ally and we firmly be­lieve that in the fu­ture, there will be more “Made in Hubei” in the world, mak­ing the en­ter­prises in­dus­trial lead­ers in the world. (From:
