Integration in the global economy today, the crisis will inevitably affect other countries, but also affect their overseas investment. Similarly, foreign-funded enterprises in China falter. CNC machine tools from the point of view, both in imports or exports, foreign trade sharp decline in the share were reduced by 10 percentage points. To foreign-invested enterprises as investment on the importation of machine tools, has long been the primary means of imports. However, the importation of CNC machine tools in the first half of the 1.09 billion U.S. dollars, down 26.2%, fell to second place, the share has also dropped by nearly 10 percentage points. First half of 2009 show that foreign investment is decreasing. In addition, the end of last year the state foreign-funded enterprises preferential tax policies for imports of equipment has been adjusted, the promulgation of a policy led to a certain extent, foreign-invested enterprises in China to imports of equipment as investments decline in the importation of machine tools.
At the same time, the State further stabilize the external demand of the six measures and the policy of stimulating domestic demand, 10, has been reflected in the industry, domestic enterprises are active in both imports and exports. CNC machine tool exports up by the private sector is only -5.5%, far better than the numerical control machine tool exports -36.9% year on year the overall decline. State-owned enterprises, private imports of contrarian on the same period in 2008 compared to the amount of imports of CNC machine tools did not fall but rise, up respectively 20.6% and 45.3%, an increase over the same period in 2008 were higher than the 14.7 and 36.8 percentage points . In the state-owned enterprises and private imports of CNC machine tools, machining centers accounted for 35% of the gantry machining centers, horizontal machining centers, CNC gantry milling machine, CNC boring and milling machine and other large machine tools accounted for 27%. China’s foreign trade systems are also undergoing significant changes. In the first half of general trade, import and export share of CNC machine tools have been further expanded, which means imports which grew 31.2% to 47.6% share for the first time exceeded foreign investment in imported equipment, machine tools, columns import trade mode first. In addition, the processing trade to the general trade, made encouraging step in the development of the first half of NC machine tool processing trade exports fell 64.5%, share fell by 11.2 percentage points.
