Speech by Liu Gang, Secretary of Party Committee of Nanxi District and Party Working Committee of Nanxi Economic Development Zone
He pointed out that Far East Yibin Intelligent Industrial Park was the first power battery-supporting project settled in Nanxi. The smooth start of production of Phase I and the comprehensive launch of Phase II today marks a new chapter in the development of the power battery and supporting industries in Nanxi District. This will certainly inspire Far East Holding Group to move forward towards its vision of becoming a global leader in the cable and smart energy industry, and will also promote Nanxi's industrial transformation and upgrading, as well as the high-quality development of the "Human-Industry-City" integration demonstration zone.
He also mentioned that Yibin is the "capital of China's power battery" and is vigorously building the world's largest power battery industry cluster with a total production capacity of 305GWh. According to the analysis of supporting production capacity, the city's demand for copper foil is about 2.44 million tons (the production of 1GWh of lithium battery consumes about 800 tons of lithium copper), which indicates that there is huge market potential and broad development space. Nanxi District is stepping up efforts to speed up the construction of a 250,000-300,000-ton copper (aluminum) foil industry, a 200,000-ton new energy positive electrode material industry, and an energy storage and production industry, demonstrating that it is advancing towards the grand goal of becoming a "major power battery and supporting industry base in China". He hopes that in the future, Far East Holding Group can further integrate resources, optimize the layout, increase investment in Nanxi District, and speed up project construction. Meanwhile, it is hoped that Far East Holding Group, adhering to the Three-sphere Integrated Principle emphasizing striking a balance between safety, quality, and progress, will complete the project construction and achieve maximum production as soon as possible.
Speech by He Yonghong, Member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Yibin Municipal Committee and Secretary of the Party Working Committee of Sanjiang New Area

Far East Yibin Intelligent Industrial Park, settled in the Nanxi Economic Development Zone of Yibin, Sichuan, reflects the development strategy of Far East which gives priority to the simultaneous development of cable and new energy industry and is a strategic move by Far East to seize development opportunities and brand dividends and further expand market share. At the same time, it is also a powerful measure in response to the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle strategy, and helping Yibin build a trillion-level lithium battery production base and one of the largest intelligent cable bases in Sichuan Province.
Far East Yibin Intelligent Industrial Park is an important part of Yibin's "1+N" power battery green closed-loop whole industry chain ecosystem, with a planned area of 888 mu. There are "High-end Wire and Cable R&D and Production Base for New Infrastructure" and "High-precision Copper Foil R&D and Production Base for Power Battery of New Energy Vehicle" in this park. Focusing on the intelligent cable network and intelligent battery sectors of the company's three core businesses, it is a large-scale modern industrial cluster base that integrates research and development, office work, production, and logistics. After the project is completed, it will have an annual production capacity of 2.315 million kilometers of cables (wires) and 60,000 tons of high-precision copper (aluminum) foil, providing more than 5,000 job opportunities.
