The third is to deepen intelligent manufacturing, enhance flexible production capacity, implement "Made in China 2025", promote the application and integration of management information systems, accelerate the construction of management, standards and credit systems, and promote management processes, personnel quality and intelligent manufacturing agents. Fourth, to implement social responsibility, enhance sustainable development capacity, promote social responsibility, optimize supply chain construction, enhance green manufacturing capacity, develop green products, create green factories, build green parks, improve green manufacturing support system.
