China sees bright prospects in green development

By: Yin Shuanghong

China’s first prefabricated high-rise vertical factory, the phase-1 project of the Pingshan New Energy Vehicle Industry Park in Shenzhen, south China’s Guangdong province, was completed and delivered in April this year.

Thanks to the application of smart technologies, the construction period of the factory was saved by 15 percent, water and electricity usage by 20 percent, and waste discharge by 20 percent.
The high-rise vertical factory enables intensive land use and is conducive to resource recycling in the industrial park. It is an epitome of the green development of the manufacturing sector.

Promoting green and low-carbon economic and social development is a key part of achieving high-quality development. In recent years, China has made significant progress in fostering new growth points for green and low-carbon development.
In the manufacturing sector, the production of solar cells and charging piles increased by 63.2 percent and 34.2 percent respectively in the first three quarters of this year, while the production and sales of new energy vehicles grew by over 30 percent year-on-year.
In the energy industry, as of the end of September, the installed capacity of solar power generation increased by 45.3 percent compared to the previous year, and wind power installed capacity by 15.1 percent.

Green technologies and products continue to emerge in various sectors and industries, effectively promoting the optimization of industrial structure and demonstrating a strong momentum for industrial upgrading.

As a new driving force, the growth of the green industry can create a broader space for economic development. Green, circular, and low-carbon development is the direction of today’s technological revolution and industrial transformation, and the most promising field for development. A better grasp of the opportunities for green transformation can take the initiative and gain a favorable position in future competition.
According to data from the General Administration of Customs, the total exports of electric vehicles, lithium-ion batteries, and solar batteries reached 798.99 billion yuan ($109.83 billion) in the first three quarters this year, a year-on-year increase of 41.7 percent. China’s leapfrog development in green industries fully demonstrates the importance of pursuing sustainable economic growth.

Green development is sustainable. Only by laying a solid foundation for green development can China achieve high-quality development in the future. China has great potential in this regard and can build a number of growth points.
Currently, the country is actively promoting concerted efforts to cut carbon emissions, reduce pollution, expand green development, and pursue economic growth. It prioritizes green transformation and upgrading of industries, accelerates the cultivation and expansion of green and low-carbon sectors, actively develops green technologies and products, and makes the economy greener, so as to enhance the potential and momentum of development.

China’s renewable energy industry is developing rapidly, and the country leads in various fields such as energy equipment, water-saving equipment, and pollution control technologies.
New ecological industry models, including urban modern agriculture, eco-tourism, and rural complexes are also rapidly growing. Today, eco-friendly products have more ways for financial gain.

It is believed that as China continues to pursue green development, the Chinese economy will become even greener in the future.
Green development is an all-round and revolutionary transformation of production methods, lifestyles, ways of thinking, and values. To promote the growth of green industries, it is necessary to adhere to a systemic perspective and coordinate the greening of production, distribution, consumption, and other aspects. It is important to actively guide and mobilize the entire society to participate in green development. With the continuous advancement of Chinese modernization and the improvement of people’s living standards, the concept of green development has permeated all aspects of Chinese people’s lives.

The demand for green upgrading and transformation of traditional industries, as well as the demand for green consumption, have given rise to a huge green market, continuously enhancing China’s development potential and momentum.

By further opening up new areas and creating new advantages, China is striving to promote economic development that not only maintains reasonable quantitative growth but also achieves steady qualitative improvement, allowing the people to have a greater sense of achievement, fulfillment, and security in a beautiful ecological environment.

Potiskum market: Gadodomasun Fika seeks Governor Buni’s intervention

By: Yahaya Wakili

Gadodomasun Fika Emirate Council in Yobe State, Alhaji Abdullahi Garba Alele, has appealed to His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Yobe State, Hon. Mai Mala Buni CON, to intervene in the construction of the Potiskum modern market.

“I will not forget the first tenure of His Excellency. During his campaign, we went round all of Yobe State, rural and urban, and he made promises to the people of Potiskum town, a modern market, because Potiskum is a center of commercial business in Yobe State. And by the grace of God, His Excellency has fulfilled his campaign promises.

Alhaji Abdullahi Garba Alele, who is also the former chairman of the NARTO Potiskum local government chapter, made the call in Potiskum while speaking to Newsmen on the one year of the second tenure of His Excellency, Governor Mai Mala Buni CON.

Abdullahi Garba Alele further said that His Excellency Governor Buni laid the foundation stone for the construction of modern markets in Damaturu, Potiskum, Gashu’a, Nguru, Geidam, and Buni Yadi, and by the grace of God, all these modern markets have been completed and commissioning, and people have occupied them and businesses have raked off inside.

“But our own for Potiskum town, which has the longest history in business with a high population of people, businessmen, and farmers, but up to now this modern market has not been completed, the work has stopped as a result of what we don’t know, the contractor has abandoned the work. Therefore, we use this opportunity to appeal to His Excellency, Governor Mai Mala Buni CON, to intervene and call on contractors to resume work on site.” Alele said.

The former NARTO chairman said that in the history of Potiskum, God blessed Potiskum with transports, because in the 774 local government councils that we have in the country, there is no local government that has transporters like Potiskum. We thank God, and we thank His Excellency Governor Mai Mala Buni for considering this thing critically. He constructed us a trailer park in Potiskum, and we thank him a lot.

“But I am assured to His Excellency that this project has stopped. Therefore, we appeal to His Excellency to intervene in this matter to complete these two projects before the end of his three years in office, so that people can benefit from this development. He prayed to Almighty Allah, and as His Excellency completed his five years successfully, we also prayed to Almighty Allah to guide and help him complete the remaining three years successfully.

Gadodomasun also commands His Royal Highness, the Emir of Fika, and Chairman Yobe State Chiefs, Alhaji (Dr) Muhammadu Abali Ibn Idrissa CFR, in his efforts to unite the people and the traditional rulers in Yobe State, and also prays to Almighty Allah (SWT) to give him health. He also prays to Almighty Allah to long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria, long live Yobe State, and long live Potiskum local government.

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Defense, and President of the 9th Senate, Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan, Ph.D., GCON, Yobe North Senatorial District, has today met with the Minister of State for Defense, Dr. Bello Matawalle, MON, and his team to discuss the implementation of the Defence Industries Corporation of Nigeria (DICON) Act 2023.

In a statement issued and signed by him on his official page, which was made available to newsmen in Damaturu,.

The DICON Act, which was signed into law by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in November 2023, is a major step towards enhancing the capacity of the Nigerian Armed Forces to produce their own equipment and reduce dependence on imports.

During the meeting, the minister of state for defense briefed me on the progress made so far on the implementation of the DICON Act.

“I commended the minister, members of his team, and other stakeholders present for the swift action taken to implement the DICON Act. I emphasized the urgent need to make DICON a catalyst for the industrialization of the defense sector in Nigeria.

The President of the 9th Senate pledged that the Senate Committee on Defense, which I chair, will continue to provide legislative support and oversight to ensure the successful implementation of the DICON Act. We believe that a vibrant and self-sustaining defense industry is essential for the security and prosperity of our nation.

Senator Ahmed Lawan also seized the opportunity to inform the minister and his team that the Senate Committee on Defense will embark on a familiarization tour of the ministry next week.

He urged the minister to leverage the expertise of Nigerian engineers, scientists, and manufacturers in the development of indigenous weapons and equipment. This will not only boost our national pride but also create jobs and stimulate economic growth.

The DICON Act has the potential to transform the defense sector in Nigeria. By working together—the Senate, the Ministry of Defense, and other stakeholders—we can make this transformation a reality.
