The research report released by the National Development and Reform Commission yesterday stated that it is necessary to pay attention to the declining trend of the non-ferrous metals industry, pay close attention to the problem of the decline in profits of the entire nonferrous metals industry and the large increase in loss-making enterprises in the smelting industry this year, and take corresponding measures.
The "Operational Analysis of the Nonferrous Metals Industry in the First Five Months" promulgated by the National Development and Reform Commission stated that since the beginning of this year, the output of major products of the non-ferrous metals industry has been steadily increasing, the prices of products have fallen slightly, the profits of key enterprises have decreased year-on-year, import and export have been normal, and investment in fixed assets for aluminum smelting has increased. Fall back.
According to statistics, from January to April, the main business income of 73 key non-ferrous metals companies in contact with the company was 215.8 billion yuan, an increase of 15.0% year-on-year; the growth rate was 27.5 percentage points lower than the same period of last year; the total profit was 20.4 billion yuan, a decrease of 7.25%, but the decline rate was lower than From January to March, it decreased by 3.98 percentage points. Among them, 22 aluminum smelting enterprises realized a total profit of 7.5 billion yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 26.14%. 22 copper smelting enterprises realized a total profit of 8.2 billion yuan, an increase of 28.1%. 15 lead and zinc smelting enterprises realized a total profit of 1.5 billion yuan, a drop of 38.1%. In January-April, among the 73 non-ferrous metals key contact enterprises, 11 were loss-making enterprises, an increase of 5 over the same period last year, with a loss of 15.07% and a loss of 555 million yuan, an increase of 6.6 times year-on-year.
In addition, the total import and export of non-ferrous metals from January to May was 39.6 billion U.S. dollars, a year-on-year increase of 13.1%. Among them, the import value was 28.3 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 16.9%, and the export value was 11.2 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 2.5%. The import and export trade deficit was 17.1 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 31.4%.
The NDRC has also raised some issues that require attention. For example, it needs to guide relevant companies to take appropriate measures to minimize the increase in production costs caused by rising raw material and energy prices; copper and lead and zinc smelting industries have blind investment growth indicators. Measures should be taken to curb the momentum of blind investment rebound; the effective link between post-disaster reconstruction planning and restoration of production in disaster areas. Pay attention to the connection between post-disaster recovery of the non-ferrous metals industry, reconstruction planning and industrial restructuring.
