The gradual cessation of the processing trade of magnesia has aroused the concern of relevant people. "Policy restrictions on energy-intensive processing trade will severely hit relevant industries in the central and Western regions, which may endanger the economic development of the western region." An official from the West told reporters.
Processing with high energy consumption is not worth the loss
Relevant data show that in the first quarter of this year, China exported 2.86 million tons of steel billet and 5.19 million tons of steel, respectively, an increase of 970.6% and 219.1% over the same period last year; in 2004, it exported 1.68 million tons of forged and rolled aluminium, an increase of 34.8% over the previous year; in the first quarter of this year, aluminium exports also reached 380,000 tons, an increase of 23.4% over the same period last year. In this regard, Bijingquan pointed out pointedly: "We are essentially exporting energy, so energy consumption processing is not worth it." Wu Junyang expressed concern about this: "Our industries are making'contributions'to high-energy processing trade, including paying for health. However, the products produced are supplied to foreigners. They only earn low processing fees, but also exacerbate the shortage of resources, and environmental pollution remains at home. In this way, the cost of sustainable development overdraft is too high.
In fact, high energy consumption processing trade not only aggravates the resource and energy constraints, but also causes unfairness to the general trading enterprises. It is understood that the imported raw materials can be exempted from tariffs and value-added tax on import links by means of processing trade, and only the intermediate value-added part can be taxed when exporting. "This is actually a preferential tax policy for processing trade." Wu Junyang pointed out.
Wu Junyang also pointed out the gains and losses of high energy consumption processing trade from the perspective of trade evaluation. He pointed out that "the contribution of high energy consumption processing trade products to the economy can not be evaluated by the volume of trade. Different from some light industrial products produced by OEM, OEM can gradually learn something, while high energy consumption processing trade can learn nothing."
Restricted trade in energy-intensive processing
In fact, since 2003, the relevant government departments have noticed these adverse effects of high energy consumption processing trade, and have gradually closed the door to high energy consumption processing trade from the aspects of export tax rebate, export tariffs, quota management and trade policy. On May 1, the export rebate rate of tungsten, zinc, tin, antimony and their products was reduced to 8%, and the export rebate rate of billets, rare earth metals, rare earth oxides, rare earth salts, molybdenum ore and concentrates, light and heavy burned magnesium, fluorite, talcum, silicon carbide and some primary wood products was abolished; from May 19, the processing trade of iron and steel products, phosphate ore and rare earth raw ore was prohibited; and from June 1, yellow. The provisional tariff rate for phosphorus exports increased from 10% to 20%, and the provisional tariff rate for ferrosilicon exports increased from 0% to 5%. In addition, the export quotas of coal and coke are also restricted to varying degrees. Reporters also learned from the relevant parties that the relevant departments are preparing to include other high energy consumption and high pollution products in the prohibited list of processing trade.
Continuous policies have achieved some results in gradually stopping high energy consumption processing trade, but in some places, the relevant departments are driven by interests, which makes the implementation of policies difficult. "Under China's current situation, in order to maintain its sustainable development, energy-intensive and scarce commodities should be dominated by domestic demand, and the export of energy-intensive processing trade must be controlled." Wu Junyang pointed out that
