Not long ago, in Dongjiang Port Area of the Pilot Tianjin Free Trade Zone, the High-end Equipment Remanufacturing Center by the China Railway Engineering Equipment Group Co., Ltd. (CREG) is to be built. In the future, this project will make full use of policy advantages in the Pilot Tianjin FTZ to carry out bonded maintenance of shielded equipment, remanufacturing and assembly business, and thus it can solve long-term problems of China's overseas export enterprises with difficulty in sending high-end equipment back to China for repair and maintenance.
"At present, Chinese enterprises fasten the pace to 'go abroad', with increased investment in the 'Belt and Road' Initiative, among which many projects aim to help with local infrastructural construction. In the actual operation, many enterprise export equipment to foreign countries for operations, however, when equipment failures occur, the local branches are not able to repair. Since they have been exported to foreign countries, they cannot return to China for domestic maintenance. The establishment of the Remanufacturing Center in Dongjiang Bonded Port Area, is a case of using functions in the Pilot FTZ for maintenance and remanufacturing of exported high-end equipment," a relevant person in charge of the CREG told the reporter.
In the newly completed Bombardier Business Jet Repair Center in the Airport Economic Zone of the Pilot Tianjin FTZ, technicians are conducting an overhaul for a Bombardier Universal 6000 business jet. "With the policy support in Pilot Tianjin FTZ, we are able to provide business jet maintenance, repair, overhaul and warehousing of commercial aircraft spare parts and other service support in the Pilot FTZ for domestic and foreign customers, especially the bonded maintenance can be more convenient and time-saving to greatly reduce the waiting time of the aircraft," said Shi Leye, general manager of Bombardier Business Jet Tianjin Service Center, to the reporter.
This is only a case of pilot trials in the Pilot Tianjin Free Trade Zone. Since its establishment in 2015, Tianjin Pilot Free Trade Zone adheres to the institutional innovation as a core and replicable and promotable practice as the basic requirements, to promote investment and trade facilitation reform. In the economic New Normal, it is to actively participate in all-round international competition with new open strategy, to bring enterprises in the zone many new opportunities for development, so that the capital, technology and other elements both at home and abroad, can quickly gather here.
"Since the Pilot Tianjin Free Trade Zone was listed, with implementation of the 'batch access and collective declaration' and other customs innovation and regulatory initiatives, nowadays the air turnover of goods clearance has been shortened from the past 1 to 2 days to 2 hours, so corporate aviation maintenance business increase significantly, The innovation of the trade facilitation regulatory system in the Pilot FTZ has enabled the enterprises to enjoy the dividends of reform and opening up," said the relevant responsible person from the Geographic Structure Service (China) Co., Ltd. in the Airport Economic Zone; Wang Yong, Executive Vice President of Tianjin Shisheng Business Group, holds that the Pilot Tianjin Free Trade Zone gives the parallel import car dealers a legal status, which is a huge breakthrough in reform and opening up.
