On the morning of 6 September, the 2018 Fortune CEO Summit was grandly held in Taiyuan. Nearly 300 business leaders, business representatives, well-known scholars and specially-invited guests gathered together to discuss the new trend of global economic development. Mr. Li Xiyong, CPC Secretary and Chairman of Yankuang Group, attended the meeting and delivered a keynote speech on the internationalization of Yankuang Group.

Mr. Li Xiyong said in his speech that the world today is undergoing major development, big changes and significant adjustments unprecedented in the past century. Multi-polarization, economic globalization and cultural diversity in the world are experiencing in-depth development, global governance system and the reform of international order are accelerating, and protectionism, unilateralism and anti-globalization trends are on the rise, which all bring more difficulties and challenges to the internationalization of enterprises.

Mr. Li Xiyong pointed out that for over 2 decades of globalized development, especially implementation of “Three-Step” strategy covering layout optimization, transformation & adjustment and consolidation & enhancement since the “13th Five-Year” Period, Yankuang Group has become the first energy-based enterprise to “go global”, the most open energy enterprise in China and the only Chinese coal enterprise that has four listing platforms. Yankuang Group has entered into 2018 Fortune Global 500, ranking No. 399 and No. 25 among Top 100 Chinese Multinational Enterprises.

Mr. Li Xiyong emphasized that looking back Yankuang’s international development, energy-based companies that want to develop overseas must possess four abilities. Firstly, efficient resources integration ability is the key to the success of cultivating first-class enterprises. Secondly, outstanding technical innovation capability is the "strong engine" of breeding the international first-class enterprises. Thirdly, ability of global integration and development is an important “magic power” of developing first-class enterprises. Fourthly, the capacity of risk management and control is the foundational guarantee of building first-class enterprises.
