2.From the perspective of foreign trade exports, the first is to look at the domestic market price, and the second is to look at the exchange rate. That is to say, the amount of glass exports stabilizes domestic prices. There will be no significant reduction in the guidance of last year.



3.It is expected that the price linkage mode will increase in various industries this year. From the beginning to the present, the East China, South China, Central China, Northwest China, East China and North China have successively held four or five coordination meetings.
