In recent years Amer has made strategic and financial industrial investments and developed sci-tech "smart" industrial parks and trading platforms, including Zhuhai Haiwei Science & Technology Innovation Center.
In 2019, Amer ranked 119th among 2019 Fortune Global 500 companies and 29th among China's top 500 with a turnover of more than 600 billion yuan ($85 billion). Amer employs a staff of over 18,000.
