Ruan Ruxiang, Permanent Vice Chairman of CIGIU, said that upon the operation of Advanced Carbon Materials Exchange Platform in Rugao Port, services covering electronic commerce, storage, transportation, delivery, settlement and finance would be carried out in the fields of graphene materials, carbon fiber materials, carbon nanotubes, synthetic diamond and other advanced carbon materials to provide global supply and demand information. Problems of difficult access to accurate information, pricing, sales, repayment, financing and implementation of standards will be addressed. The platform would not only provide high-quality products and financing for transactions, but also create an international commodity price index of carbon materials to increase China’s discourse power in terms of international carbon materials.

The successful convening of this forum gives a fresh impetus to Rugao's economic development, talent introduction, investment and financing, and industrial upgrading. Rugao would make full use of international high-end think tank resources in building industrial public service platform to offer more support for the major newly-moved-in enterprises. An advanced carbon materials industrial park oriented by research, production and livability will be built to promote industrial upgrading and innovation for unprecedented leap-frogging development.
