My country is recognized as a major chemical country in the world. In 2015, global output accounted for 36%, and the production capacity of most chemical products has ranked first in the world. However, only Sinopec is on the list of the top 50 global chemical companies, which inevitably gives people the feeling of being big but not strong. For any industry, "big" is the foundation of "strong". Only with high output and high revenue can there be high profits and high added value. Now that we have the conditions for "big", but in recent years, we have been plagued by problems such as overproduction, environmental pollution, and frequent safety accidents.

Made in China has been accumulating over the years, and under the pressure of environmental protection, it has made great breakthroughs in improving quality and efficiency in recent years. However, from the perspective of the global market, it is still in the third echelon, and it will take a long time to enter the first echelon. The key to this is talent and system." On January 20, at the first chemical science and technology industry summit, Chang Jiwen, deputy director of the Institute of resources and environmental policy of the development research center of the State Council, once again stressed the importance of talents for industrial development and the importance of system for the cultivation of innovative talents. Chang Jiwen believes that scientific and technological innovation should play the role of market recognition, and science and technology should be market-oriented in order to really benefit innovation.
