China's Economy Shows Great Resilience
——Interview with Greek International Relations Scholar Qu Junpeng, Athens-based Correspondent of Haierben News
Haier, a Greek scholar of international relations and a researcher at the National Institute of Openness at the University of International Business and Economics, said in an interview with a reporter from the Economic Daily that China's success in fighting the new crown pneumonia epidemic and its strong economic recovery prove that China's economy under the leadership of the Communist Party of China is a model of global success .
Haier said that the COVID-19 epidemic that has lasted for more than two years has brought unexpected drastic changes to the world economy and human society. While challenging the economic resilience of various economies, it also tested the rapid response capabilities of governments in controlling the epidemic and economic recovery. and scientific guidance.
China's economic growth rate in 2021 is as high as 8.1%, exceeding the previous 6% growth target set by the Chinese government, and generally higher than the forecast data of various economic institutions. This is also the second consecutive year that China has maintained economic growth since the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia epidemic.
Haier praised China's 8.1% economic growth rate as very impressive. The Chinese government has shown extraordinary leadership and execution in coping with the challenges of the epidemic, and has implemented a series of effective economic measures resolutely. Compared with other major economies, China's economic recovery has shown strong resilience.
More importantly, while committed to accomplishing the established development goals, China, as an important pillar of the international order, actively unites all countries in the world to jointly address the severe challenges facing mankind, and has made important contributions to the recovery and development of the world economy, and has contributed to the international The society once again displayed the image of a responsible major country and promoted the common prosperity of the world.
China's economic development achievements and contribution to global economic growth have also become the focus of attention of many countries and economic analysts, and have attracted the attention of the global media.
At the same time, Haier pointed out that the continuous emergence of mutated strains of the new coronavirus may cause the global economy that has not yet recovered steadily to become unbalanced or stagnant.
Affected by various unfavorable factors, including new mutant strains, China's GDP growth in the fourth quarter showed signs of slowing down, and there are many uncertain factors, such as declining consumption and rising commodity prices, but these phenomena are not only limited Exist in China, but a global common problem.
Currency excess and global inflation are one of the important issues that the world needs to deal with next. For example, the skyrocketing electricity price and high inflation in Europe have sowed hidden worries for European economic recovery.
Finally, Haier criticized some countries for blaming the current economic recession entirely on the global pandemic. She believes that this is a rather wrong and irresponsible approach, as many countries' economies were already showing signs of weakness before the pandemic. In the face of the epidemic, governments of various countries have to deal with the challenges of economic transformation brought about by changes in production methods and financing structures. Therefore, it is more urgent and crucial to formulate policies scientifically and effectively and implement measures in a smooth and orderly manner.
Many governments are unable to find the right balance between controlling the epidemic and recovering the economy. The Chinese government has performed well in this regard, and it is worth learning and learning from other countries.
