International Mismatch of Economic Cycle, Supply-Side Reform and Medium- and High-Speed Growth of Chinese Economy

The Chinese economy entered the “new normal” in 2015 and China successfully fended off the financial risks through the flexible use of monetary and financial policies. More effective fiscal policies were adopted, the economic growth slowed down steadily and Chinese economy realized soft landing. In the meantime, commodity price in production sector was low, so deflation in the consumption sector must be avoided, but the economic structure was continuously improved, and innovation and entrepreneurship created new driving forces. In 2016, the global economy is likely to continue to recover slowly, but the mismatch of economic cycle will aggravate the risk of economic decline. In the first year of the 13th five-year period, the Chinese economy still faces downward pressure. We need to step up the supply-side reform and work hard on both the supply end and demand end in order to meet the goal of stabilizing the economy while making progress and keep the economic growth rate in the reasonable medium- and high-speed range.
