Recently, the seventh Guangdong furniture industry economic work conference was held in Guangzhou with the theme of "poly intelligence, innovation and win the future". The Southern Daily reporter learned from the meeting that in 2012, the total output value of the Guangdong furniture industry continued to lead the country, but the growth rate fell to a single digit rate, lagging behind Sichuan, Fujian, Liaoning and other provinces. Wang Ke, President of the Provincial Furniture Association, said that the industry development in the new year will be transformed from scale speed to scale efficiency.
According to the Guangdong Furniture Association, the total output value of the furniture industry in 2012 is about 300 billion yuan, accounting for 26% of the total of the country, up 7.1% over the 280 billion yuan in 2011, and the whole country continues to maintain the national leading position. However, Zhu Changling, chairman of the China Furniture Association, said at the meeting, "although the furniture industry is running relatively smoothly, the situation is still not optimistic." According to Zhu Changling, the growth rate of furniture industry in Sichuan, Fujian, Liaoning and other provinces in 2012 was over 20%, while Guangdong showed only one digit growth.
Wang Ke, President of the Guangdong Furniture Association, said at the meeting that in 2012, the Provincial Furniture Association was still actively cooperating with the provincial government to accelerate industrial transformation and upgrading in the context of the overall "deceleration" in the industry development situation. The sixth "governors Cup" industrial design competition, the fourth Guangzhou home design exhibition, the Guangzhou Commodity tour promotion month and other activities were organized to revitalize industry confidencestorage rack.
Wang Ke said that in 2013, the development of furniture industry in Guangdong will be transformed from scale speed to scale efficiency and strive to maintain an overall growth of 10%. On the one hand, we should strengthen the expansion of domestic demand, actively increase the development of the three or four level market, and conscientiously do the two "China Guangzhou International Furniture Fair" in spring and autumn, and strive to complete the primary task of growth of 12.4% in the domestic market. On the other hand, we must steadily develop exports and actively explore new export markets for furniture, striving for an increase of 5% in delivery value.
