Yao Jingyuan, Consultant of the State Council and former economist of National Bureau of Statistics, was invited to give a speech in regard to China's economic issues concerning everyone, which was highly praised by the attendees.
In the salon activity, Yao Jingyuan said that, at present, the difficulties facing China's economy can be summarized as “four drops and one increase”, i.e., four drops of economic growth rate, enterprise profits, producer's price for manufactured products and fiscal revenue growth rate, and increase of financial risks.
He indicated that the current economic difficulties were not only cyclical, but also structural. He said: “We cannot neglect the structural problems and must solve them actively, and the fundamental solution is to promote the economic reform of the supply side.”
During the speech, Yao Jingyuan believed that the so-called “New Normal of Economy”, apart from the decline of economic growth rate, was reflected in the following two aspects, i.e., structure optimization and power conversion, which was also the important measure for tackling the economic difficulties. He said that optimizing the industrial structure was to strengthen the weak link – the primary industry, enable the shift of the second industry from middle and low end to the high end and attach great importance to the development of modern service industry represented by the financial industry and the cultural industry. In addition, he indicated that the power conversion was to change the previous pattern in which the economic growth was driven by the investment of a large amount of capital, resources and labor force, and seek innovative patterns.
He said that the fundamental approach to realize sustainable economic growth was to establish five concepts, i.e., innovative, coordinated, green, open and sharing development. He also said: “Open means that while we continue to intensify efforts to attract investment, we should also go out, including the implementation of the One Belt One Road initiative.” Sharing, in his opinion, means that millions of people should be involved and share the development achievements.
