The key to the reform of

is to abolish the

it is understood that at present, only tobacco salt are monopolized in China. China National Salt its salt companies at all levels are both managers operators. The monopoly of salt industry has been criticized. In recent years,

have not made clear progress although there is a high dem for salt industry reform in the market. In 2005, the national development Reform Commission proposed to formulate the salt industry reform plan, the draft was formed in 2007. But later, the management of the salt industry was transferred from the national development Reform Commission to the Ministry of industry information technology, the salt reform work ran aground. At the end of 2009, the national development Reform Commission the Ministry of industry information technology set up a salt industry system reform working group, put forward the salt industry system reform plan again, but there were no relevant measures for a long time.

until April this year, the notice of the national development Reform Commission to abolish the "measures for the administration of salt monopoly license" showed the market the hope of salt industry reform. Although the reform only put the designated salt production enterprises under the approval of the original national development Reform Commission to the local government for examination approval, salt monopoly has not been opened to the market, but the industry believes that this is paving the way for the market-oriented reform of the salt industry. Zhu danpeng, a researcher at

, has publicly told the media that the key to the reform of the salt industry is to release the monopoly franchise break the administrative management of salt industry license. The core of

is to abolish the monopoly of salt industry. In this regard, some analysts believe that the general direction of salt industry reform is to introduce market competition to form a market-oriented price.

a person from China Salt Industry Association said in an interview with the media that according to the draft provisions of the meeting, the salt industry will continue to be exclusive in 2015, cancel the franchise in 2016, apply for a new license at the same time in 2016, start to obtain new business activities in 2017. In addition, other analysts pointed out that the biggest change in the salt reform is that the profits originally required to be hed over to China National Salt Corporation can be retained on their own. However, marketization does not mean that the price is completely liberalized. The state will certainly stabilize the price through macro-control. The fully circulated transportation system also determines that the price difference between local salt companies will not be too large. The

were transformed ahead of time. According to the public data, China National Salt Corporation (hereinafter referred to as "China National Salt") was founded in 1950 authorized by the State Council to centrally manage the salt industry in 1964. Since 2004, China salt has become the main body of salt production operation, the leading enterprise the only central enterprise in China's salt industry. The annual salt output is 2.8 million tons, accounting for 30% of the national output. It has 46 wholly-owned holding subsidiaries.

should be said that the most affected by the salt industry reform is Zhongyan. Xiang Jianjun, a researcher in the food industry of CIC consultant, believes that once the salt industry reform is implemented, it is expected to improve the performance of salt making enterprises. "Although approval is still required, provincial enterprises can avoid Zhongyan, realize the integration of production marketing, obtain most profits. At the same time, through competition, small backward enterprises will be merged or eliminated, there will be one or two monopoly local salt companies in each province to regulate the salt market to a certain extent. "

however, for this salt industry reform, Zhongyan seems to have responded. The cooperation between

China Salt Shanghai (hereinafter referred to as "China Salt Shanghai") Morton Salt Company of the United States (hereinafter referred to as "Morton salt industry") started as early as 2001, when the two sides established the first Chinese foreign joint venture of salt industry in China: Shanghai Zhongyan Morton Salt Co., Ltd.

according to the agreement, this agreement exps the scope level of cooperation between the two sides. The cooperation not only includes trademark technical license, but also introduces various kinds of American salt products through Morton company, including Morton salt, Morton natural sea salt, Morton sea salt grinding bottle its supplementary packaging, Morton fine sea saltAnd Morton coarse-grained food salt a series of products.

in addition, the joint venture is also responsible for the production of Chinese packaging of Morton salt products, local market development sales, so on. At present, Morton salt Morton sea salt have been identified.

should be noted that the joint venture company of the two sides is currently building a new sub packaging center in Shanghai to cope with the comprehensive expansion of the product market. Sina Finance economics learned that the plant has a capacity of 20000 tons per year is expected to be officially put into operation in March 2015.

China National Salt Co., Ltd. US salt giant bring reform signal

As a state-owned enterprise, it implements two brs one team with Shanghai salt administration bureau. It undertakes the functions of Shanghai salt market management salt administration law enforcement, is responsible for the Salt marketing iodized salt supply in the city.

. The expansion of cooperation between China Salt Shanghai Morton salt industry the layout of high-end salt have brought some signals to the industry. For more than ten years, the salt industry system reform plan has been in suspense, but in recent years, the call for reform has become more more intense, the seventh version of the plan is widely rumored to be released this year. At the end of last month, Wang Qiang, deputy director of the restructuring Department of the national development Reform Commission, also said publicly that salt industry system reform was imperative. It is necessary to consider all the supporting conditions for the reform, actively steadily promote it, ensure the stability of the industry, gradually realize the smooth transition from monopoly to marketization of the salt industry.

is it just a matter of time before China becomes the largest salt importing country

Wang Xueshi told the media that at present, China is already the world's largest salt producer. Last year, China produced about 100 million tons of salt, the annual consumption of salt (salt plus industrial salt) was about 80 million tons. Therefore, the overall state of the salt industry is "production exceeds sales".

. However, the current situation that can not be ignored is that due to the restriction of the franchise system, there are relatively few varieties of salt in China, high-end salt starts late has few sales. For example, in some countries, such as the United States, the proportion of high-end salt is about 8% to 10%, in some countries it even reaches 15%. In contrast, China is lagging behind. He also joked about the fact that there were about 40 kinds of salt sold in supermarkets in Japan. Wang Xueshi said that different consumers have different dems for salt. For example, in the past two years, Morton imported salt tried water in the Shanghai market. He thought that the price of imported salt was more than ten times higher than that of ordinary salt. However, in fact, the sales volume of Morton's imported salt alone in Shanghai reached several hundred tons a year, which was greatly unexpected.

"at present, China's consumption of edible salt accounts for more than 10% of the total salt, the annual consumption of small package salt is about 4.5 million tons." if we calculate according to the proportion of high-end salt in the consumption of salt in the United States other countries, such as 8%, the potential can reach 360000 tons of annual consumption.

. According to the latest survey of roskil Information Service Co., Ltd., UK, China is the largest salt consumption market in the world. As early as 2012, China's salt dem has accounted for 1 / 4 of the world. It is only a matter of time before China becomes the world's largest salt importer. Wang Xueshi of

also pointed out that there was an increasing trend in the import of salt by visual inspection. He said frankly that at present, it is still difficult to produce some high-end salt varieties only relying on Chinese technology. Therefore, it is necessary to import some of them rely on foreign technology, experience ideas. However, he believes that China's salt industry will soon go to the market, after marketization, it will not be restricted by administrative divisions.

. On September 16, the official of China National Salt Corporation also announced that on the morning of August 29, China National Salt Corporation held a cadre meeting in Beijing. Song Yachen, director of the Second Bureau of enterprise management of SASAC of the State Council, announced the decision on the appointment removal of state owned assets of the State Council. Li Yaoqiang served as the chairman, Secretary of the Party committee chairman Secretary of the CPC Committee of the China National Salt Corporation. Mao Qingguo, the former chairman of China National Salt Corporation, was removed from office retired at the age of.

for the change of head of China salt, some people in the industry believe that this is the precursor of salt industry reform. At the same time, China National Salt Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as China National Salt Co., Ltd.), which was established last year, will become the leader in the resource integration of China's salt industry, the guide of structural adjustment transformation development of the salt industry, the promoter of salt industry reform.

salt industry concept stocks will welcome significant benefits.

Sanyou chemical industry is a leading domestic soda ash viscose enterprise. However, in recent years, under the double pressure of domestic economic growth slowdown industrial overcapacity, as a strong cyclical industry, the company's performance is more dependent on industry capacity change cost control. In 2013, the company's performance growth mainly came from viscose staple fiber business. In 2014, the decline of viscose price made the performance of chemical fiber companies decline. Thanks to the price of soda ash rising all the way this year, the company's performance has been able to maintain continuous growth. Therefore, the company is eager to develop new business for transformation.

according to the analysis of industry insiders, according to the existing profit calculation, if the annual sales volume of salt business reaches 400000 tons, it will bring 200 million yuan profit to the company every year, which will bring achievement moat for Sanyou chemical. The company also said that entering the salt field will promote the transformation of the salt chemical company even Sanyou group from an industrial raw material production enterprise to a terminal commodity enterprise; the follow-up companies may introduce partners to jointly do large-scale salt business.

as for Xindu chemical, the current layout of edible salt is further. According to the company's relevant personnel, Xiaogan Guangyan Huayuan, a subsidiary of the company, is one of the first batch of designated edible salt production enterprises in the country, covering an area of 175 mu, with an underground mining area of 6.2 square kilometers an annual output of refined salt of 1 million tons. YiYanTang company chooses two development directions of seaweed iodized salt low sodium salt. In order to achieve the strategic goal ensure the supply of various salt raw materials, YiYanTang company invested in the establishment of Weihai Yixin nineA variety of new products were launched in the third quarter.

analysts pointed out that compared with iodized salt, multi variety salt has a higher profit level. At the same time, with the upgrading of consumption, the market space of high-end products is exping day by day, the launch of high-end products will bring more profits.
