At the new level of product level, the trend of scale, completeness and automation began to appear, and equipment with complex transmission and high technical content began to appear. It can be said that China's machinery production has met the basic needs of the country and began to export to Southeast Asia and third world countries. For example, China's total import and export volume in 2000 was 2.737 billion US dollars, of which exports amounted to 1.29 billion US dollars, higher than 1999. 22.2%.
