Nuggets' food machinery enterprises in the African market have great potential

at the 2013 Africa risk assessment meeting held at the headquarters of Deloitte & Touche LLP in South Africa, experts from the African Development Bank, Deloitte and other institutions believed that at present, East Africa and West Africa maintain rapid economic growth, and many industries in Africa, such as agriculture and mining, have great investment potential. According to various data, the overall investment prospects in sub Saharan Africa deserve attention, and many foreign enterprises have quietly scrambled for the beach in Africa. Chinese food machinery investors, why not open their eyes and look for business opportunities in Africa

the next five to eight years will be a golden age for Chinese enterprises to invest in Africa. China and Africa have strong economic complementarity and great cooperation potential. According to the statistics of Chinese customs, the total trade volume between China and Africa in the first half of 2013 reached US $105.65 billion, exceeding US $100billion for the first time in half a year, with a year-on-year increase of 7.1%

Chinese enterprises welcome opportunities in Africa

Linyifu, member of the National Committee of the Chinese people's Political Consultative Conference, said that investing in African countries is a good choice for Chinese enterprises at present. After the production links of China's labor-intensive industries are transferred to areas with relatively low wages, it is conducive to the transfer and upgrading of these labor-intensive industries to both ends of the manufacturing smile curve. Lin Yifu said that after these labor-intensive production links are transferred overseas, they can not only take advantage of the local cheap labor, but also facilitate the domestic industrial transformation and upgrading. That is, after the production links are transferred, they are also conducive to the release of limited land resources and labor resources, and engage in New industries with higher added value

therefore, it is possible to invest in African countries or other developing countries, such as Southeast Asia, Central Asia, or even Latin America. Lin Yifu said that personally, there are several advantages to investing in Africa: on the one hand, Africa has a population of onebillion, and the current wage level is very low. As we did in the early 1980s, it is a bit like an unlimited construction period, which is very suitable for labor-intensive processing and manufacturing enterprises to settle down, especially in several African countries with relatively stable societies

Lin Yifu said that people only pay attention to the trade surplus between China and the United States and the trade surplus between China and Europe. If we transfer these processing links to Africa, we can reduce the trade surplus with the United States and Europe, and also alleviate the trade pressure we face externally. Not only that, we can also win the centripetal force of African countries and even their support for China

Africa has a promising development prospect and an attractive food processing market.

in recent years, Africa's economy has developed rapidly, thanks to the rich mineral and agricultural resources in the African continent. Hailemariam said that 60% of the world's uncultivated farmland is in Africa. At present, only 17% of the arable land in Africa is cultivated, and China has great investment potential in African agriculture. As the global prices of grain and agricultural products continue to rise, Chinese enterprises have great prospects in Africa

according to the report released by McKinsey Global Research Institute in June, the agricultural output value of Africa will increase from the current 280billion US dollars to nearly 900billion US dollars by 2030. The latest report released by the world bank predicts that the economic growth rate of sub Saharan Africa will exceed 5% in the next three years, and Africa will attract 54billion US dollars of foreign direct investment every year

Africa's fertile land and great agricultural potential also provide a reliable food source for food processing. Dr. Ziegler, director of the International Rice Research Institute, pointed out that there are still large areas of land suitable for rice cultivation in sub Saharan African countries. However, due to insufficient development, 40% of Africa's rice demand now depends on imports from Asia. He pointed out that if the development of food production in Africa is further increased, the food production in Africa is expected to be significantly increased in the next 10 years

preferential policies accelerate the pace of going global

in addition, the Chinese government also encourages grain and food processing enterprises to go global. In february2012, the national development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of industry and information technology released the 12th Five year development plan for the food industry. The plan proposes to develop inter country grain cooperation to reduce pulsation, encourage domestic enterprises to go out of last year's production of 300000 tons of high molecular composite materials, and establish rice, corn and soybean processing enterprises abroad

African countries have also actively promoted the development of agricultural products processing industry and formulated relevant development plans and incentive policies. For grain processing enterprises, it is the right time to enter Africa. As early as 2008, Egypt approved the allocation of 250million Egyptian pounds (about US $46million) to build a 50 ferdan agricultural products processing city in the natru valley. China and Africa have formulated a comprehensive master plan for the development of agricultural product processing industry, in which the main direction is the cultivation and processing of agricultural products

how many opportunities are there for nuggets in Africa?

however, due to insufficient processing capacity, most African coffee can only passively export raw materials based on the demand of developed countries. Being subject to the price fluctuation of the international raw material market means that the economic lifeline is in the hands of others. This also seems to provide a new platform for China's food machinery industry. The specially invited experts of China's food machinery and equipment believe that this is a rare opportunity for China's food machinery export. The machinery manufacturing industry in Africa is very weak, and machinery and equipment are basically imported from western countries. However, the performance of mechanical equipment in China is not inferior to that in the west, but the price is competitive. In particular, the export of food machinery has increased year by year

in addition, our domestic grain processing level is relatively high, and the processing capacity is also surplus. We have certain advantages in the processing technology of some grain varieties. Taking corn processing as an example, in recent years, China's corn processing and transformation capacity has grown rapidly, with an annual growth rate of about 20%. Especially in Jilin, Heilongjiang, Liaoning and Shandong, the corn deep processing industry has developed rapidly. The scale of the original corn deep-processing enterprises continues to expand, and new and proposed deep-processing enterprises continue to emerge. In terms of the proportion of actual corn processing volume of corn deep-processing enterprises in each province, Shandong and Jilin account for the highest proportion, accounting for about 45% of the country in total

China has a relatively detailed classification of food processing machinery, including baking equipment, drying equipment, conveying equipment, sterilization equipment, etc. In the later stage, packaging machinery such as sealing machinery and packing machinery will be involved. Liumin, director of the marketing department of Changzhou Xinyi Equipment Co., Ltd., said that the company mainly produces baking and drying equipment, most of which are exported to Southeast Asian countries, and a small amount of which are also exported to Russia and the Middle East. Its business to Africa is still blank. At present, it is still uncommon for many food processing machinery enterprises in China to export to Africa

with the development of China's economy and the deepening of Africans' understanding of China, Africans' concept of Chinese products is gradually changing, and their demand for Chinese mechanical products is also increasing. In the face of such huge profits that startec is specialized in producing mechanical testing equipment such as experimental machines, African coffee producing countries have expressed their determination not to make wedding clothes for others. For example, the government of C ô te d'Ivoire has proposed that most coffee in C ô te d'Ivoire should be processed locally after 2015, and raw material exports can only account for 5-10%

practice internal skills to make going global more solid

while Europe, which is still China's largest export market, is struggling to cope with the debt crisis, China's food machinery manufacturers are starting their global market journey with Southeast Asia, Africa and South America as their targets. Where does the domestic food machinery manufacturer come from to go overseas and stay overseas

independent innovation is the key for domestic enterprises to go global. China's food machinery industry has achieved leaps and bounds in technological innovation, product development, manufacturing and industrial chain control, which has made its global industrial position leap rapidly. With the rapid upgrading of the industrial structure, the research and development of domestic food machinery continues to advance towards high-end, large-scale and intelligent, making made in China more selling points and advantages in overseas markets

improving internal skills and increasing investment in science and technology are the foundation for the internationalization of food machinery enterprises. All enterprises engaged in the production of food machinery should clearly realize that the core of the international competition of food machinery in the future is the scientific and technological content. Only by strengthening the investment in science and technology, constantly improving the technical content of products, developing safe, effective and characteristic high-tech products, and moving from low-level price war and advertising war to high-level technical war, can enterprises create brands and move towards the international mainstream market

Chinese food machinery enterprises should take the scientific concept of development as the guide, change the development concept, strengthen independent innovation, enhance market awareness, and effectively promote the development of domestic food machinery industry. At the same time, we should adhere to the "going out" development strategy and actively expand foreign markets. We should strengthen investment in science and technology, put an end to excessive dependence on foreign high-end technology, and strengthen independent innovation. Only in this way can we enhance our competitiveness and occupy a place in the international market

summary: various facts have proved that Africa is an investment choice for food machinery enterprises worth considering. However, the business war is merciless. Before going to Africa to search for gold, Chinese investors should also be fully prepared. In terms of business operation, we must fully consider Africa's geographical environment, legal system and labor protection awareness. Finally, we must pay attention to personal safety. Many Chinese people were jittery about security issues before they went to Africa. After staying in Africa for a long time, they relaxed their vigilance when they found that it was not so terrible. As a result, they ran into trouble because of carelessness. This lesson must be borne in mind
