Qi Jun said that in 2018, the total sales of China's construction machinery products increased by 25.5%. In the first quarter of 2019, the construction machinery market still performed well, with the total sales of major products increasing by 15.2%.

Strong support.

The construction machinery industry is closely related to infrastructure engineering. Qi Jun believes that the Xiongan New Area is about to enter a large-scale substantive construction phase; China's fixed asset investment in roads, waterways, and railways will also increase significantly in 2019; China will further promote the implementation of a number of projects involving the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei and Yangtze River Infrastructure construction projects in the economic belt, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and the central and western  regions.

Qi Jun said that the above-mentioned infrastructure construction and people's livelihood guarantee projects will give rise to a huge demand for more environmentally friendly and more efficient construction machinery and equipment. It is an opportunity for construction machinery manufacturers all over the world, and it is also a guarantee for the continued growth of China's construction machinery market in the future .
