From April 9 to 11, the Boao Forum for Asia 2010 annual meeting was held in Boao, Hainan, China. The theme of this annual meeting is "green recovery: a realistic choice for sustainable development in Asia". The following is the transcript of an exclusive interview with Mr. panweibo, senior vice president of Volvo Group and chairman of Volvo's truck business in Asia

host: Friends of Tencent, when we finally want to deal with it! This is the front reporting group of Tencent, the Boao Forum for Asia. Today, we are very honored to invite Mr. panweibo, senior vice president of Volvo Group and chairman of Volvo's truck business in Asia. Hello, Mr. Pan

panweibo: Hello

host: This is the third year that Volvo has participated in the Boao Forum for Asia as a diamond sponsor. What topics do you care about this Boao Forum

panweibo: first of all, for Volvo, we have been working in China for 18 years. It should be said that China has great opportunities. Therefore, this time we also want to use Boao as a stage to improve the popularity of our brand in such a broad market as China. At the same time, we also hope to take advantage of the Boao Forum to jointly promote green recovery, a very important topic

Moderator: just as the theme of this Boao Forum is "green recovery - a realistic choice for sustainable development in Asia". What role do you think Asia will play in the future

panweibo: I think Asia, especially China, will play a very important role in the global green recovery. "He Minghui positioned the company sushang like this. From my own experience, I think China has made great progress in environmental protection. Therefore, I have full confidence in China's role in green recovery

as for Volvo trucks, we are also willing to actively participate in China's environmental protection actions, especially in our trucks, buses and construction equipment. We will adopt more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles to promote China's environmental protection

host: in addition, I would like to ask you, as you just said, Volvo has been developing in China for 18 years. Then, can you make some comments on China's investment environment

panweibo: we have always been very optimistic about the investment environment in China. In the past 18 years, we have built a very strong platform in China, and we have seen our business in China prosper day by day. Not only the current business, but also we think China will bring us many opportunities in the future. Therefore, we have regarded China as another home

host: I would like to ask you what are the most difficult problems you have encountered in China for so many years

pan Weibo: of course, I think the biggest challenge for us in China is the impact of the global financial crisis on China. Because the global financial tsunami in 2009, especially at the beginning of 2009, also had a certain impact on China, our business must also be adjusted in real time. Fortunately, from the second quarter to the fourth quarter of 2009, the Chinese business began to rebound. Therefore, this is also good news for us

host: are you satisfied with Volvo's performance last year

panweibo: it should be said that I am not satisfied with the business performance in 2009. In several major markets of Volvo, we can say that we have halved the shipment volume, reducing by one and a half. 1. The purpose of the experiment is about half. This is also the biggest drop in Volvo's history. Of course, on this basis, we have also done two important jobs, one is to reduce costs, the other is to reduce inventory, which made us rebound in the fourth quarter of 2009. In 2010, the business recovered further on the basis of 2009. This is a very good sign
