China News Agency, Beijing, January 8 (Reporter Ruan Yulin) Liu Shijin, deputy director of the Economic Committee of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, said at the 18th China Iron and Steel Industry Chain Market Summit and Lange Steel Network 2022 Annual Meeting held in Beijing on the 8th that the past ten years In 2019, China's economy was relatively stable from high-speed growth to medium-speed growth. From a global perspective, China has done very well, "but we still have not crossed the threshold of high-income countries."

  Liu Shijin said that from the perspective of international comparison, by 2035, China's per capita income level will rise to three major steps: first, the per capita income will reach 13,200 US dollars, becoming a high-income country; second, the per capita income will reach 20,000 US dollars, Enter the ranks of developed countries; third, the per capita income reaches 30,000 to 40,000 US dollars, with an average of 35,000 US dollars, reaching the per capita income level of moderately developed countries.

  Liu Shijin said that in 2021, China's per capita gross domestic product (GDP) will reach 12,500 US dollars, which is very close to the standard of a high-income country defined by the World Bank.

By 2035, China's per capita income will reach a level of 30,000 to 40,000 US dollars, which means that the per capita income level will increase by 1.5 to 2 times during this period.

  "We are very close to the high-income stage now, and we are still one step away. We will not catch up in 2021, and the gap may widen in 2022." Liu Shijin said, from an international point of view, from the middle-income stage to the high-income stage , That is, when the per capita income is around US$10,000, it is a special unstable stage.

  "China's per capita income fluctuated when it was just over 10,000 US dollars. Whether it can cross the high-income threshold as soon as possible is still facing challenges." Liu Shijin said that the most urgent task is to bring economic growth back to a normal track or a reasonable range. Specifically, The actual growth rate should reach the potential growth level.

  Liu Shijin suggested that the government should propose an economic growth target of no less than 5% in 2023.

Due to the low base in 2022, if the first half of 2023 can mostly or fully get rid of the impact of the epidemic, and various measures to stabilize growth are implemented, especially the reform and opening up will increase efforts to stabilize expectations and confidence. It may be higher, and we should strive to achieve an average growth rate of about 5% in 2022 and 2023.

  Liu Shijin said that this is not only an urgent requirement for stable growth at present, but also a key step that must be taken to achieve the long-term development goal of Chinese-style modernization.
