China's mask production recovering as work resumption quickens

2020-2-10 10:51

 

BEIJING, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- China's mask production capacity is recovering steadily as producers race to resume production in full gear to ensure enough supply for control of the novel coronavirus outbreak.

About 73 percent of the country's mask production capacity had been recovered by Feb. 7, Chen Da, an official with the National Development and Reform Commission, the country's top economic planner, told a press conference Sunday.

For medical masks, the rate rose to 87 percent, Chen said.

China is the world's largest mask producer, with over 20 million masks made daily in normal times.

In a move to encourage production of key medical supplies including masks, Chinese authorities have reassured producers that the government would be the ultimate buyer if the market could not consume all the products.

Imports of masks are encouraged, Chen said, adding that duties on mask donations are waived and support will be offered to firms using chartered planes to bring in import masks.

Work resumption is taking place across China except for Hubei Province, the hardest-hit region. About 94.6 percent of the country's major grain production and processing firms have resumed production, while supply of natural gas, electricity and refined oil is sufficient, Chen said.

The government will introduce targeted and coordinated measures to ensure smooth work resumption, especially in sectors of daily necessities and medical supplies, he said. 

 

北京,2月9日(新华社)——中国口罩的生产能力正在稳步恢复,生产商正全力恢复生产,以确保有足够的供应来控制新型冠状病毒的爆发。


国家发改委官员陈达在周日的新闻发布会上表示,截至2月7日,全国口罩产能已恢复约73%。


陈说,医用口罩的使用率上升到87%。


中国是世界上最大的口罩生产国,平时每天生产超过2000万个口罩。


为了鼓励口罩等关键医疗用品的生产,中国有关部门向生产商保证,如果市场无法消化所有产品,政府将是最终买家。


陈表示,政府鼓励进口口罩,并表示将免除捐赠口罩的关税,并将为使用包机进口口罩的公司提供支持。


除受灾最严重的湖北省外,全国各地都在恢复工作。陈表示,我国约94.6%的主要粮食生产和加工企业已恢复生产,而天然气、电力和成品油供应充足。


他说,政府将采取有针对性的协调措施,确保工作顺利恢复,特别是在生活必需品和医疗用品领域。
