  In the past few years, the emergence of pressures such as epidemic prevention and control has put many private enterprises in a difficult environment. Some small and medium-sized enterprises are also faced with the problems of rising operating costs, increasing accounts receivable, and difficult and expensive financing. With the implementation of regulatory and anti-monopoly policies, some different views on the development prospects of the private economy have emerged.

  The 2021 Central Economic Work Conference emphasized that it is necessary to boost the confidence of market players, further promote the implementation of fair competition policies, strengthen anti-monopoly and anti-unfair competition, and ensure fair competition with fair supervision.

The private economy has played an important role in stabilizing growth, promoting innovation, increasing employment, and improving people's livelihood. It is a key issue to boost the confidence of the majority of private enterprises and maintain their positive expectations for the Chinese economy.

  All parties will wait and see what important proposals and proposals will be put forward by deputies to the National People's Congress and members of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference at the upcoming 2022 National Two Sessions, and what forward-looking policy measures China will introduce.
