Reform Determination and Development Vigor
“All Good Principles Should Adapt to Changing Times to Remain Relevant”. During the 13th Five-Year-Plan Period, the Beijing-Tianjin- Hebei collaborative development strategy and national strategy for Xiong39;an District will bring valuable opportunity to this institute. In the face of fierce market competition, our institute seizes the opportunity and makes timely adjustments to the production management system and mechanism. With institutional organization and standardization of scientific operation our corporate management was promoted to a new level. With pioneer courage and flexible wisdom, we seek brighter road of development for our enterprise.
In order to promote sustained and healthy enterprise development, our institute has formed the following business strategy. Our main business focuses on engineering consulting, survey and design; comprehensive transportation planning and industrial policy research, transportation science and technology research and development and technology innovation are the two wing businesses for our existing business scope. Based on present business scope we also seek to extend our industrial chain and to build comprehensive service platforms for highway maintenance, road materials research and innovation, engineering safety and disaster prevention and control, municipal, rail transportation and engineering project management, construction, design and construction contract etc. At the same time we actively develop both domestic and foreign markets. We seek to build a support platform for scientific development decision making, technology progress, industry development and talents gathering. We seek to turn the institute into a booster for innovation and multiplier for development. Our target is to become a highly competitive and efficient modern enterprise!
