From the perspective of operation, the vitality of the points market has been continuously improved, with a cumulative transaction amount of more than 20 billion yuan, which has effectively promoted the technological progress of the industry and the promotion of new energy vehicles. In the next step, under the guidance of the First Division of Equipment of the Ministry, the equipment center will continue to do a good job in the support of points management, actively research and propose policy measures, coordinate the construction and operation and maintenance of the point pool system, anchor the "dual carbon" goal, actively do a good job in the research support of the connection between points and carbon, and contribute more to the low-carbon development of the automobile industry.
