Automotive Industry

It is estimated that TEDA will be constructed into the largest automotive manufacturing base of China. The major advantages of TEDA include:

1.Competitive Edge of TEDA

With a favorable geographic location, Tianjin, the economic development center of North China, can inject great momentum to the markets in Northeast China and Central Plains.

Compared with the Yangtze River Delta and Pearl River Delta, the competitive edge in cost and potential for the manufacturing industry makes Tianjin one of the most important auto production bases in China.

The Tianjin Port is the largest port in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Province region and serves as an important access for the import and export of whole cars and parts in North China.

The region where TEDA is located follows the development momentum of the international auto industry and is one of the key auto industrial bases encouraged by the central government.

2.Current situation of component suppliers in Tianjin and surrounding area

Full range of products; large amount of companies but many of them are smaller size;

Focusing the manufacturing business;

3 kinds of investment: foreign investment, state-owned, private investment

3 models of supply chain:

1) Japan- Korea system:"Bidirectional Monopolies"model

2) FAW system: "Vertical Integration"model

3) Private system;Dissociated state

3.Tianjin is planned as a key point in the National Strategy of Automotive Industry Development

The integration of Tianjin Automotive Group and First Automotive Group has made Tianjin one of the 3 core points of developing automotive industry under the direct support of the Central Government. This implies that the approval of setting up new auto factories or new types automotives projects in Tianjin will be supported by the related governmental authorities.

4.Tianjin Port, the largest ocean port in North China, also the largest import port of automotives in China

Year 2002 sees 43,420 units of cars importing and selling through Tianjin Bonded Area, occupying 61.7% of the total amount of China, keeping its leading position in this country. Tianjin is the largest automotives import port of China.

5.Automotive Industry, the pillar industry of Tianjin

- More than 200 auto industrial enterprises operating in Tianjin. The supply chain of auto industry is getting more and more completed.

- Among them:9 automotives manufacturing companies

170 components suppliers

6.One of the pointed manufacturing base for cars and mini-cars

- Top 1 of mini-cars output

- Top 1 of 1.0L,1.3L engines output

7.The comprehensive manufacturing output of Tianjin is 230,000 annually.

8.Tianjin Automotive Group cooperated with Toyota from Japan to set up a joint venture ---- Tianjin

Toyota Automotive Co.,Ltd. in year 2000. Tianjin Automotive Group joined hands with First Automotive Group and started the Giant -Giant Cooperation in year 2002.

9.One of the largest manufacturing base of economic cars in China.

10.Several research organizations such as China Automotive Technology Development Center locate in Tianjin.

11.Complete logistical system and distribution system

Tianjin is the largest automotive logistical center of North China.

Its logistical network spreads into the 11 provinces in North China.

Shanghai Volkswagen Auto Co. has set up its Northern China Distribution Base in TEDA.

12.Beijing & Tianjin Area, the fastest growing market of automotives in China.

Tianjin with its surrounding areas is one of the largest auto consumption areas in China. For example, the auto sales volume in Beijing occupies nearly 1/10 of the national volume; number of private cars in Tianjin is among the top areas in China, the No.4 exactly.

TEDA will construct the Suppliers' Platform for Toyota and Hyundai.

Automotive Industry in TEDA

1.TEDA will become the Automotive Factory of China

Tianjin FAW TOYOTA Co. manufactures Vios, Corolla, Crown and other types of cars here with total investment amounting to 1 billion USD.
Another automotive project will be relocated in TEDA
Sanfeng Passenger Car of Tianjin Automotive Group is discussing a joint venture project
