Wuhan is an important automobile and parts production base in China, with more than 1000 parts enterprises, which plays an important role in the national automobile supply chain. Affected by the epidemic, most of the auto parts enterprises in Wuhan have experienced two months of production suspension, which has caused great pressure on the national auto supply chain.
However, with the restart of Wuhan, the risk of automobile supply chain has been basically eliminated.
At present, Wuhan auto parts manufacturers are actively returning to work and production to help the domestic auto supply chain relieve the production capacity pressure. Geely Group and other vehicle enterprises actively help Wuhan suppliers to resume production and help Wuhan economic recovery from the aspects of increasing employment and resumption of production.
According to the report, at present, 100% of the first-class suppliers of Wuhan Automobile Enterprises Reply to the resumption of work, and the overall resumption rate is more than 95%. The supply chain risk caused by the failure of suppliers to resume work has been basically eliminated. As of March 27, there were 175 Industrial Enterprises above the designated scale among the "Dongfeng system" first-class suppliers in Wuhan Development Zone, with 173 start-up enterprises and 98.86% operation rate.
In addition, on the morning of March 28, Wang Zhonglin, member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Hubei Provincial Committee and Secretary of the CPC Wuhan Municipal Committee, visited Dongfeng Motor Group and its supporting parts enterprises to actively provide door-to-door service and coordinate to solve the "difficulties" and "blocking points" in the resumption of production.
