Sailun Developing Intelligent Network Platform

A total of over 200 participants, including head of the EVE Rubber Institute, Wang Mengjiao, Sailun’s CEO, Yuan Zhongxue, FAW Group leaders, Xi Guohua, and the leaders of the local Dongying government.

In his speech, Yuan Zhongxue expressed his heartfelt gratitude to FAW Group, Dongying Municipal People's Government, Dongying Municipal Party Committee and all the builders involved in the East China ICV Test Site Project. He said that

Sailun Group has always shouldered the historical mission to “make great tyres”. Under the inspiration of the national “2025 plan”, it is their duty to promote the development of the national rubber tyre industry.

In recent years, Sailun Group has been working hard to become a world-class Chinese tyre brand through creating an active global strategic layout and keeping up with technology trends such as 5G.

Yuan Zhongxue also stated that FAW Group is a giant with a long history in China's auto industry, while Sailun Group is an emerging power in the new era tyre industry. As natural upstream and downstream partners, both sides have a good foundation for cooperation. This strategic cooperation will allow both companies to fully realize their own advantages in the fields of vehicle, tyres and parts to build the first modern testing ground in China that is able to provide a comprehensive platform for intelligent connected travel services.

In addition, Sailun Group will also cooperate with FAW Group and other vehicle manufacturers, parts companies, communication companies, internet companies, infrastructure service companies and other partners to build a whole industrial chain on the East China Test Site.

This cooperation and industrial chain will cover R&D, manufacturing, sales, and services related to automobile and tyres, and bring these and their supporting enterprises together in one place.
