Since the beginning of this year, the globalization strategy of Gotion High-tech has been continuously implemented. In June, the company reached strategic cooperation with JEMSE of Argentina to establish a joint venture production line of battery-grade lithium carbonate in Jujuy Province of Argentina. At the same time, the German Gotion was officially unveiled, which started the pace of “made in Europe” Gotion batteries. In July, the company’s General Depositary Receipts (GDR) rang the bell on the SIX Swiss Exchange; In September, it signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Sumec to promote the export business of energy storage products. According to the company’s plan, by 2025, it is expected to achieve 300GWh annual production capacity of global production capacity, including 100GWh overseas, to help achieve global carbon neutrality.
