At sunset, Qingshan Park, China-Indonesia Comprehensive Industrial Park, located in Morowali County, Central Sulawesi Province, Indonesia, ushered in the off-get off work rush hour. Cars and motorcycles merged into a traffic flow under the afterglow of the setting sun, and Indonesian employees walked together While walking and chatting, hearty laughter came from time to time.

As one of the key projects of the joint construction of the "Belt and Road" initiative in Indonesia, after 9 years of development, China Tsingshan Holding Group (Tsingshan) has settled in two parks in Indonesia with more and more Chinese-funded enterprises, contributing to the local development of Indonesia. It is getting bigger and bigger, constantly writing a new chapter in the mutually beneficial and win-win cooperation between China and Indonesia.

To achieve a win-win situation

Indonesia has rich reserves and output of lateritic nickel ore, but factors such as weak infrastructure, backward technology, and lack of talents have restricted the development of the local nickel ore processing industry.

Zhang Fan, head of Tsingshan Morowali Park, said that China Tsingshan Holding Group, whose main business is stainless steel production, entered Indonesia in 2009. In October 2013, Morowali Park was signed to start construction. While doing infrastructure construction, the park attracts Chinese ferronickel smelting enterprises with complementary advantages in the industrial chain to enter the park for joint investment, joint risk sharing and group development.

Nickel is not only an essential raw material for the manufacture of stainless steel in traditional industries, but also an important component for the manufacture of nickel-metal hydride batteries in the new energy industry. Since 2017, Tsingshan has joined hands with Chinese enterprises Huayou Cobalt and GEM to carry out new energy battery ternary precursor material manufacturing projects in the two parks of Morowali and Weda Bay to boost the development of the electric vehicle industry.

The Indonesian government highly supports and praises the investment of Chinese enterprises. Indonesian Maritime and Investment Coordinating Minister Luhut has visited Qingshan Park many times to inspect factories, thanked Chinese companies for bringing advanced smelting and engineering technology to Indonesia, and believed that Chinese investment will have a profound impact on the localization of Indonesian metallurgical engineering technology.

Bambang Suryono, chairman of the Indonesian think-tank Asia Innovation Research Center, believes that the model of Chinese companies building parks in resource-origin areas has achieved a win-win situation for all parties. For Indonesia, natural resources have been effectively used and value-added, and the manufacturing industry has achieved a breakthrough in industrial upgrading; for Chinese companies entering the park, the cost of early inspection and research has been saved, and the nickel ore resources needed for production have been obtained immediately. ; For Tsingshan, with the development and growth of enterprises entering the park, they also share the development benefits.

Help Green Development

Will the construction of parks in tropical archipelago countries like Indonesia have any impact on the surrounding ecological environment? Corals and tropical fish in the sea can answer this question.

There is a well-known diving spot near Qingshan Weidabei Park in North Maluku. Roy, a local diving instructor, said that since the Weda Bay Park was built in 2018, there are still many tourists who come here to dive. Thanks to ecological measures such as marine garbage cleanup, coral transplantation, and mangrove protection in the park, the number of tropical fish and coral reefs here is on the rise.

Roberto Rodriguez, the partner of Weda Bay Park, the representative of Ehrman in France, said that the park attaches great importance to the surrounding ecological protection and uses an advanced sewage and waste treatment system. The sewage from the mining area has been purified for many times before it flows into the park. the sea. The production and operation of the park is strictly in accordance with international standards, and the mining area is reclaimed and re-greened in an orderly manner. After more than 4 years of operation, there are still green mountains and green waters here.

According to reports, the two parks in Qingshan decided at the beginning of 2021 to invest in the construction of solar energy and wind energy clean energy bases in the next 3 to 5 years. The electricity produced by them will be mainly used for the production of new energy ternary battery materials. The production will all use clean and renewable energy to truly achieve zero carbon dioxide emissions. In the future, the park will also start a hydropower project to further improve the supply guarantee of clean energy.

Promote people-to-people bonds

Developing in a group and benefiting the local area is the concept actively practiced by many "Belt and Road" joint construction projects. It is reported that the two parks in Tsingshan currently employ more than 100,000 Indonesian workers. The rapid development of the parks has also driven commercial support and employment in the surrounding areas, and has become a powerful promoter of local economic and social development.

Talking about the changes brought by the park to the surrounding area, the village head of Lelilov Shawai village, Freleks Albaben, opened the chatterbox endlessly. "Commercial activities in the village are becoming more and more active, and the access roads have grown from scratch. It is transforming from a primitive jungle into a vibrant mountain town."

Weda Bay Park also actively promotes the localization of talents, and trains Indonesian employees through such forms as "teacher and apprentice" and "teaching and mentoring". So far, the park has trained 13,000 local technicians.

Provide electricity to surrounding villages, build schools and football fields, fund the construction of local hospitals, assist local governments and universities to set up colleges, and provide students with free accommodation and internship positions… The park shares development achievements and development opportunities with the local area, so that the local people can benefit more Good work and life have deepened each other's sense of belonging.

Fitriani, the 27-year-old technical director of the Morovali Park, said that the Qingshan Park has brought great changes to his life. "Here I realize my life value through work. I call this place home."
