Sinotruk’s Jinan-Laiwu green digital intelligent manufacturing base has set a new benchmark in the global commercial vehicle industry and left me a deep impression. Since the signing of the strategic cooperation agreement last year, bilateral cooperation has reached a new height. We will set up a dedicated team to deepen multi-field strategic cooperation with Shandong Heavy Industry, collaborate on research and development of advanced technologies, and jointly meet the challenges of new markets, new energy and new science and technology.
