As one of the long-term influential entrepreneurs in the Chinese economic field, Li Dongsheng will become the focus of media attention in the past two sessions. Li Dongsheng introduced that this year he prepared three representative suggestions: the first is the internationalization of enterprises and the globalization of the Chinese economy. How to effectively promote the reform; the second is about how the country accelerates the improvement of technological capabilities; the third is about the reform of the securities market.
The current new crown epidemic is still continuing to spread globally. Li Dongsheng believes that the current impact of the epidemic on the economy is periodic; the greater impact on China ’s manufacturing or China ’s economic development comes from the huge economic situation in the past few years. Variety.
After China's accession to the WTO, China's economy has accelerated its integration into the global economy. In this development process, China has better grasped the opportunity and established a comparative advantage. Its influence and proportion in the global economy are increasing. Li Dongsheng said that the current trend of counter-globalization and the barriers and obstacles that the Western countries represented by the United States have set up for China from trade to science and technology to all aspects will bring to the future development of the Chinese economy and the globalization of Chinese enterprises. To have a profound impact. "The epidemic has exacerbated these effects or these measures."
As a witness of China's reform and opening up, Li Dongsheng divided the development of China's economy since the reform and opening up into three stages: In the first stage, China's economic development relied on comparative advantage. At that time, China's labor costs were very cheap, and the policy of attracting foreign investment was very Preferential; In the second stage, Chinese companies began to establish their own brands, and Chinese local industries have gradually developed. Many industries have Chinese local companies, and then local companies have slowly developed and expanded; In the third stage, Chinese manufacturing, Chinese companies have further improved their capabilities and started exporting our industrial capabilities to the world.
"China has established a global comparative advantage in manufacturing. In most industries, China has become a" world factory "because of our comparative advantage in manufacturing. This is not a 'gift' given to us by others, but China. The result of the efforts of several generations. "Li Dongsheng emphasized that the view that China is the biggest beneficiary of the WTO is biased because economic globalization, especially the establishment of WTO rules, has played a positive role in the development of the global economy. Countries are all beneficiaries. China ’s economic development over the past 20 to 30 years is higher than most countries in the world. The most important thing is China ’s own efforts, and the Chinese have paid a huge price for this.
Li Dongsheng, who has experienced the development of the economy in the past decades, said that he can realize this more deeply. "So this trend of counter-globalization, some western politicians and economists have changed the current economic landscape, and many of these evaluations of China's economic development are unfair."
Li Dongsheng judged that the trend of economic globalization in the future will continue to move forward. This is not something that a few countries and a few politicians can resist because economic globalization conforms to the laws of development. "The division of labor in this global industrial chain is a market behavior, not driven by political factors. Ultimately, the restructuring of the global industrial chain and the adjustment of economic globalization rules will affect the future development of Chinese enterprises, but The overall pattern and trends of economic globalization will not change. "
Looking forward to the future of globalization, Li Dongsheng said that the trend of economic globalization will not change, but the rules will change, and China must adapt to this change. We need to establish an industrial chain and a supply chain in the world. We must take root locally and develop global business while contributing to the economic and social development of the host country. Such globalization will certainly be welcomed by other countries.
