Although there are still many uncertainties in the economic environment at home and abroad, we have great confidence in the civil explosive industry and believe that the integration of blasting will become the main development trend of civil explosive industry. At present, with the in-depth adjustment of domestic supply structure in recent years, China's civil explosive enterprises are actively carrying out restructuring and integration, and the market concentration is improving gradually. At the same time, the Chinese government is increasing the investment in infrastructure, which will provide a strong driving force for the sustainable development of the civil explosive industry. In addition, with the implementation of The Belt and Road initiative, there will be more room for the growth of overseas civil explosive business for Chinese enterprises in the future.

While vigorously developing the civil explosive business, we will also make full use of our rich experience in mine engineering business and strive to expand the metal mine business.
