On behalf of the CCPIA, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks, cordial greetings and sincere wishes to all the staff who have been working hard on all posts, to all the friends who care about and support the development of CCPIA from all walks of life!

2019 marked the 70th anniversary of the founding of the people’s Republic of China, which were also the 70 years of rapid development of China’s pesticide industry. Especially since the reform and opening up 40 years ago, China’s pesticide industry has carried out various major policy decisions in depth, actively responded to market demand, and achieved leapfrog development in the industry, making remarkable achievements. Looking back to 2019, the effect of reducing-application-and-increasing  efficiency of pesticides and chemical fertilizers was obvious, and the pesticide utilization rate of the three major food crops was 1.0% higher than that in 2017; in this year, the battle of seizing the grains from the insects, and the prevention and control of the spodoptera frugiperda was won; in this year, improving the quality and efficiency, and intelligent manufacturing became the major trend of the industry development; in this year, the pesticide enterprises had showed a tendency of  integration, the concentration of the industry was constantly increasing, and the industrial structure has been further optimized and improved.

The era has called. For the CCPIA, we must shoulder greater responsibilities and missions in 2020. We will fully implement the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and the central economic work conference, persist in seeking progress while maintaining stability, constantly strengthen our own construction, make up for the shortcomings more solidly, lay a solid foundation more firmly, persist in serving the industry and enterprises, and continue to play the role of bridge and link between the government and enterprises, and among enterprises. At the same time, facing new situations, problems and challenges, we will also strengthen technological innovation, mechanism innovation and management innovation.

In 2020, we will continue to carry out HSE training and certification of enterprises, helping them do a good job in safety, environmental protection and health responsibility care; actively develop group standards to further improve the quality standard system of pesticide products in China; continue to organize enterprises to participate in the formulation of international standards for agrochemical products to enhance the competitiveness of Chinese pesticide companies; continue to carry out in-depth publicity and training activities on the safe and scientific use of pesticides to reduce unscientific use of pesticides at the terminal; create new exhibition service models, strengthen multilateral and bilateral international cooperation and exchanges, and build more communication platforms for enterprises. In addition, we obtained the copyright of World Pesticide in 2020. In the future, we will adhere to the complementary advantages of traditional media and new media, and provide a good learning and communication platform for industry personnel.

In 2020, the CCPIA will seize the day and live it to the full. We will remain true our original aspiration to be an industrial model, overcome difficulties, and accelerate the high-quality, green, and safe development of the pesticide industry, to ensure the sustainable and stable development of agriculture and national economy.
