Changchun FAW is now called China FAW Group. Its predecessor is Changchun No. 1 Automobile Manufacturing Plant. The main entrance is located in the middle of Dongfeng Street. The name of the factory is inscribed by Chairman Mao Zedong, the great leader. Changchun FAW laid the foundation in 1953, and in 1956, the first domestic Jiefang brand big car came out of the factory. It's a pity that I haven't seen FAW for many years in Changchun. In the past few days, I have been searching for Jiefang cars on the road, but all of them are new Dongfeng trucks. On TV, it seems that the DPRK has the old liberation driving. What I saw in the Leifeng Memorial Hall in Fushun was that Uncle Lei Feng drove the Jiefang cars. After decades of development and expansion, FAW now produces and manufactures a variety of large, medium, small, heavy, light, micro, sedan chair, bus series cars. Old liberation was aided by the eldest brother of the Soviet Union. The factory area is not allowed to visit. Standing on the road of Dongfeng Street, there are three-storey buildings with red brick and green tiles. At first glance, the buildings of the former Soviet Union were built. The decoration and painting of the buildings are as good as before, and no worn-out appearance can be seen. The main door of FAW is basically unchanged. The new FAW building opposite is too spectacular. Today, FAW has gone from the Liberation Brand in the early days of its plant construction to many independent brands such as "Dongfeng" and "Red Flag" made in China. I got on the bus at Jianjian Street Station, took bus No. 19/119, got off at Checheng Garden, People's Square, and walked 300 meters along the cross-country road. First, I saw the magnificent tall buildings of Xinfa Group. "traffic" 1.

Changchun has only two key words, one is FAW, the other is barbecue. Half of the city is FAW, and half of the city's people rely on FAW. The whole city had barbecues, and in the evening, the whole city smoked. Both men and women stepped on boxes and drank beer. No matter young or old, they knew FAW people. This is the city of Niubei.
At the first stop of Changchun, I am also a person from an old state-owned enterprise. I am very kind to that. The building is magnificent. Adults can visit it. Children are not allowed to enter it. Maybe safety is taken into account. The security guards at the door are enthusiastic. I have said a lot.
It's worthwhile to go to Changchun First Automobile, of course, to see the magnificent scale.
Look at the car production line. Look at the old factory building
In 1953, FAW laid the foundation and built it in 1956 and put it into operation, which opened a new history of China's automobile industry. From July 15, 1953, when construction began, to July 15, 1956, the first domestic Jiefang brand car was born, which was the period of FAW's construction. From 1956 to the end of 1978, FAW grew and developed. From 1979 to the end of 1988, it was the transformation period of FAW "Liberation" automobiles, also known as the second pioneering period. From 1988 to the end of 2001, it was the period of structural adjustment of FAW, also known as the third pioneering period marked by the development of cars and light vehicles. In December 2001, the 11th Party Congress held by FAW declared that the historical mission of FAW's third entrepreneurship has been completed; on December 30, 2008, the World Brand Value Laboratory, the world's authoritative brand value research institute, held the "2008 World Brand Value Laboratory Annual Award" selection activity, China First Automobile Group Company, with its good brand impression and brand vitality, was honored. The award of "China's most competitive brand list" won the general praise of consumers.
FAW itself is a small city with all kinds of facilities, from primary schools to universities, from hospitals to cinemas, from the Cultural Palace to the Children's Palace. I grew up in FAW, and now I go back and sometimes take the wrong road, because every block is really the same.
