The new crown epidemic has had a huge impact on the global economy. As the world's second largest economy and the first country to recover, the direction of China's economic policies and the direction of economic operations have particularly affected the pulse of the world economy.
A few days ago, an important forum has aroused widespread concern in the international community. On July 21, at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, General Secretary Xi Jinping had a cordial discussion with representatives of entrepreneurs from different industries and different ownerships.
"Protecting and stimulating the vitality of market players", "Promoting entrepreneurial spirit", "Concentrating our efforts on doing our own affairs"... From a series of important statements by Chinese leaders, the world sees that China continues to deepen reforms and expand opening up in the new era He has a firm determination to understand the resilience and vigor of the Chinese economy under the pressure of the epidemic.
General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech at the entrepreneurs forum focused on prominent issues and responded to social concerns, which was highly targeted and instructive. When it comes to protecting and stimulating the vitality of market players, he first emphasized the "implementation of a policy to help companies benefit."
Under the epidemic situation, funding constraints are a common problem faced by companies in various countries. In the first half of this year, China’s financial sector made innovative use of structural monetary policy tools, reducing the deposit reserve ratio three times, increasing the re-loan rediscount limit of 1.8 trillion yuan, and introducing a small and micro enterprise credit loan support plan to “transfusion” enterprises. . It is expected that throughout this year, the financial system will give 1.5 trillion yuan in profits to enterprises.
Relieve enterprises and stimulate vitality. In the second quarter of this year, China's economy stabilized and recovered, from negative to positive, with an increase of 3.2%, injecting confidence and impetus into the continued decline of the global economy.
From the formal implementation of the Foreign Investment Law and its implementation regulations to the “slimming” of the negative list of foreign investment access again, from promptly revising the new version of the catalog of industries encouraging foreign investment to speeding up the revision and promulgation of the "Measures for Complaints by Foreign Invested Enterprises"... This year, China has built the world The first-class business environment keeps moving.
The continuous improvement of the business environment has continuously shown the "magnet" effect of the Chinese market. According to data from the Ministry of Commerce of China, in the second quarter of this year, China's actual use of foreign capital increased by 8.4% year-on-year. On May 19, Honeywell’s Emerging Market Headquarters and Innovation Center was officially established in Wuhan. At the end of the month, the German Volkswagen Group signed a strategic agreement with two Chinese companies to increase China's new energy vehicle market. Recently, Qualcomm, Johnson & Johnson, Exxon Mobil, Cargill and other companies have also accelerated their deployment in China and actively expanded the Chinese market.
"Wealth is a great cause, and Japan is a great cause." When talking about the promotion of entrepreneurship at the entrepreneurs forum, General Secretary Xi Jinping proposed that "entrepreneurs should be explorers, organizers, and leaders of innovative development." Yin Yin expects.
In recent years, China has made remarkable achievements in scientific and technological innovation, and has formed an important driving force for high-quality development in promoting the integration of digital technology and traditional industries. In 2019, the contribution rate of China's scientific and technological progress reached 59.5%, and the added value of the digital economy reached 35.8 trillion yuan. According to the evaluation of the World Intellectual Property Organization, China's innovation index rose to 14th in the world, ranking first among middle-income economies.
During the epidemic, new industries, new formats, and new models such as smart manufacturing, unmanned distribution, online consumption, and remote office have developed rapidly, demonstrating the vast development space of China's economy.
During the National Two Sessions this year, when visiting members of the economic circles who participated in the Third Session of the 13th CPPCC National Committee, General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that the basic characteristics of my country's economic potential, strong resilience, large room for maneuver, and many policy tools have not changed.
Take the foreign trade import and export, which is obviously affected by the external environment, as an example. Since the beginning of this year, China has successively introduced a series of policies and measures such as improving export tax rebate policies, increasing foreign trade credits, and supporting exports to domestic sales. Some foreign trade companies have joined hands with domestic e-commerce platforms to ease the pressure of capital return through "exporting to domestic sales".
In today's world, the interests of all countries are highly integrated, and mankind is a community of shared destiny, and win-win cooperation is the general trend.
Not long ago, in a reply to the members of the "Global Chief Executive Officer Committee", Xi Jinping clearly stated that China will unswervingly adhere to the path of peaceful development and unswervingly promote economic globalization towards an open, inclusive, inclusive, balanced, and Develop in a win-win direction and promote the construction of an open world economy. At the entrepreneurs forum, he also emphasized that with the domestic market as the main body, it is by no means a closed-door operation. "In the long run, economic globalization is still a historical trend, and the division of labor and cooperation between countries and mutual benefit and win-win situation are the long-term trends."
Cultivate new opportunities in the crisis and open new games in the changing game. Facing the future, a China that continues to open its doors to the world will surely create more development dividends for the world.
