Ethiopia is located in eastern Africa and lacks natural resources. Its industrialization process started late and has a weak foundation. For a long time, the imperfection of the national measurement system was an important reason for restricting Ethiopia's industrialization process. At the end of 2010, Poly Group put forward a proposal to help Ethiopia establish a national metrology center. Since then, it has helped Ethiopia establish a standard metrology laboratory for mechanics, thermals, electricity, and geometry. At the same time, it has established three-dimensional measurement and high-voltage impact resistance experiments This has enabled Ethiopia to gradually form a national measurement system.
Xu Niansha, chairman of Poly Group, said that in addition to building a national-level measurement center, Poly also actively participated in the development of various industrial sectors in Ethiopia. Beginning in 2009, Poly cooperated with the General Administration of Radio, Film and Television of Ethiopia, and has helped Ethiopia build 74 television transmitting stations, so that television signals basically covered the residential areas of Ethiopia. In addition, in the fields of precision machining, vehicle manufacturing, agricultural machinery, engineering construction, ship maintenance and repair, communications and power networks, Poly and Ethiopia have in-depth cooperation. At present, the various factories constructed by Ethiopia and Poly are in normal operation. In addition to selling domestic products in Ethiopia, they also export to neighboring countries such as Sudan and Tanzania.
At present, Poly's business in Africa is mainly focused on economic and trade cooperation and overseas engineering. In terms of overseas engineering, Poly has contracted a number of overseas engineering projects in Africa, mainly covering transportation, industry, broadcasting, and housing construction, and has accumulated valuable experience in overseas business development, operation, management and operation. In the African engineering market, Poly has successively contracted the Sudan Rufa Bridge Project, the Sudan Duweim Bridge Project, the Sudan Fashir Highway Project, the Ghana Housing Project, the Mauritania Port, and the Zambian Municipal Road Project.
In Sudan, the Sudan-Rufa Bridge, an infrastructure project undertaken by Poly, has become a symbol of China-Sudan friendship. During the construction of the Sudanese Rufa Bridge, Poly cooperated with the 18th Bureau of China Railway. The two sides complemented each other's strengths and constructed efficiently. The four-month dry season was seized to complete the bridge's underwater infrastructure and ensure the smooth progress of the project. During the construction process, the construction personnel overcome difficulties such as bad weather, lack of materials, and language barriers, and finally completed the bridge construction in advance. After the construction of the bridge was completed, it was delivered to the local highway bureau for maintenance and operation, and is currently operating well. The completion of the bridge has effectively improved local traffic and promoted local economic development.
"For a long time, the backwardness of infrastructure has become a bottleneck restricting the development of Africa. Deepening infrastructure cooperation between China and Africa will lay a solid foundation for the improvement of people's livelihood and economic development in African countries. Poly Group has been cultivating the African market for years in infrastructure construction. There are nearly 70 engineering projects in Africa. Poly is willing to undertake more African infrastructure and urban transformation projects to consolidate the foundation for African economic development. "Said Zhang Zhengao, general manager of Poly Group.
In Africa, Poly is also actively involved in public welfare. The lack of electricity is seriously hampering Africa's development. In response, the World Bank launched a project called "Light Up Africa" with public welfare and poverty alleviation. The project is launched in sub-Saharan African countries, and aims to provide modern Lighting equipment, and help new and non-fossil fuel high-tech lighting products open up markets in Africa. Poly has actively won the project. After 5 years of operation, it has helped a large number of African residents to use solar energy systems, ending the history of many local residents without electricity.
Taking this project as a starting point, Poly is working hard to help consumers in African countries and regions such as Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania and other countries to obtain a variety of cheap, reliable and high-quality lighting products and services. Poly Technology also plans to rely on existing overseas engineering projects and carry out a series of poverty alleviation measures, including Hope Primary School aid construction, solar pump donation, school supplies, books, medicines, sports supplies and living materials donations, etc. Improve the living environment and living standards of local people.
In Mali, Xinshang Caramel Link Co., Ltd. invested by China Light Group, a subsidiary of Poly Group, actively fulfilled its social responsibilities while solving the large local employment and meeting the local people ’s sugar life needs. Over the years, the new Shanghai Caramel Alliance has repeatedly built roads for residents in its area free of charge, deepened wells for free in the local area, and solved the problem of safe drinking water for residents. In addition, the company has added a large number of medical facilities to local hospitals and obstetrics and gynecology clinics, equipped with ambulances, sponsored local primary school supplies and equipment, funded the construction of football fields, and funded the construction of the training center of the Mali Women's and Children's Fund.
"Poly's entry into Africa not only brought products, technologies and brands, but more importantly, it shouldered the mission of inheriting China-Africa friendship and promoting China-Africa economic and trade cooperation. Poly will strive to enhance the reputation of Poly brand in Africa and strictly fulfill its The social responsibility of African central enterprises. With the goal of legal system, standardization, science, and civilized management, it continuously contributes to improving the well-being of African people. "Said Xu Niansha, chairman of Poly Group.
