March 26, 2020

According to incomplete statistics from reporters, since the beginning of this year, more than 50 infrastructure projects have been approved by the Development and Reform Commission, with a total investment of more than 1.3 trillion yuan. From the perspective of project types, they are mostly concentrated in urban rail, airport expansion, coal mine and other fields.

Wang Qing, chief macro analyst of Dongfang Jincheng, said in an interview with reporters that investment as one of the "troikas" that drive the economy has a significant influence on the short-term economic operation.

Investment pull is highly sensitive to policies

Recently, the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee held a meeting to analyze and study economic work in 2020. The meeting pointed out that we must resolutely win the three major battles, do a good job in the "six stability", coordinate and promote stable growth, promote reform, adjust the structure, benefit the people's livelihood, prevent risks, maintain stability, and maintain economic operation in a reasonable range.

Tang Chuan, expert from the Ministry of Finance's expert bank and research director of 360 Financial PPP Research Center, told the Securities Daily reporter that "Six Stability" is an important supplement to the supply-side structural reform methodology in the new environment. However, the emphasis on "stability" is not just about pursuing the stabilization of economic data in a certain range. It is more demanding that each module can develop stably and healthily, especially in terms of stable investment.

Wang Qing said that in recent years, with the acceleration of China's economic restructuring, the contribution rate of investment to economic growth is still around 20% to 30%, which is the pillar of economic growth after consumption. More importantly, in the context of relatively stable consumption and large fluctuations in external demand, investment with relatively high policy sensitivity can often become a key force in stabilizing macroeconomic operations.

Xu Guangrui, Executive Dean of the National Future Science and Technology Research Institute, said in an interview with the Securities Daily that investment is still one of the important means of stabilizing economic growth, especially the importance of achieving efficient investment and creating a good investment environment. Constantly enhanced. In general, China has gradually entered a development stage driven by the scale of investment and the simultaneous drive of scale and efficiency. On the one hand, investment can ensure stable economic growth, and constantly strengthen traditional shortcomings such as transportation, energy, and public services, and new generation information infrastructure shortcomings such as 5G and the Industrial Internet; on the other hand, it can continue to cultivate new economic growth points.

Strengthening investment policies

Since this year, steady investment policies have been gradually exerted. In June of this year, the State Council issued the “Notice on Doing a Good Job in Issuing Local Government Bonds and Supporting Project Financing”, which proposed that special bonds be allowed to be used as eligible major project capital. Subsequently, cases of capital special debt in some areas have also been issued. implement.

In November, the State Council issued the "Notice on Strengthening the Capital Management of Fixed Asset Investment Projects". The relevant person in charge of the National Development and Reform Commission stated that the document is conducive to safeguarding the legitimate investment rights of investors and fully mobilizing social funds to participate in infrastructure project investment. ; It is conducive to making full use of social equity investment funds, exerting its leverage and amplification as capital, and effectively promoting effective investment.

Wang Qing told reporters that the above measures are mainly aimed at the bottleneck of funding sources that have restrained the growth rate of infrastructure investment since this year. It should be pointed out that the stable investment policy since this year still reflects the principle of "holding, keeping and controlling": First, while supporting infrastructure investment, continue to maintain a high pressure on the hidden liabilities of local governments; second, the Central Political Bureau in July The meeting emphasized that "lds should not use real estate as a means to stimulate the economy in the short term". This means that this year the supervisory authorities will pay more attention to a good balance between stabilizing investment and preventing risks, and have a strong determination not to engage in "flooding floods".

Xu Guangrui said that since this year, the government's policies and measures in the investment field have mainly taken three aspects. The first is to ensure infrastructure investment, not only in the second half of the year to speed up the approval of railway and other infrastructure projects, but also in reducing the capital of fixed asset investment projects The second aspect is to increase effective investment and promote the continuous improvement of investment efficiency, especially in the new urbanization construction and other areas to strengthen the shortcomings, and make efforts to build facilities based on new-generation information technology; third, to optimize investment Environment, promote investment that is conducive to the promotion of economic development by various market entities, including innovative project financing methods, encourage the use of developmental financial tools, and attract more private capital to participate in key area project construction.

Investment will present three major characteristics next year

According to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, from January to October this year, the country completed a total of 51.088 billion yuan in fixed asset investment (excluding farmers), a year-on-year increase of 5.2%. In October, the National Development and Reform Commission approved a total of 8 fixed asset investment projects with a total investment of 44.2 billion yuan, mainly in the energy sector.

Regarding the direction of stable investment next year, Wang Qing said that it is expected that the reduction of taxes and fees for enterprises next year will not weaken, and the decline in manufacturing profits is expected to reverse, which will to a certain extent boost corporate investment confidence; Industry investment, especially for private and small and micro enterprises, will continue to increase. It is expected that the acceleration of manufacturing investment growth in 2020 will be a high probability event. In terms of infrastructure investment, the real estate market is expected to maintain a stable operating pattern in 2020, and the growth rate of real estate investment will not significantly retreat from the current level of about 10%. On the whole, supported by a series of stable investment policies, the growth rate of fixed asset investment next year will accelerate 3% to 4% compared with this year. To ensure that the goal of "doubling GDP in ten years" is achieved in the final year.

Tang Chuan told reporters that overall, the investment next year will present three major characteristics. The first is to emphasize transportation and communication; the second is to balance; the third is to strictly implement the "moderate development" and "lduro finance" ideas emphasized by the relevant central committee's relevant policy meetings.

& ldquo; Looking forward to 2020, there are three main points for investment. One is to continue to increase efforts to accurately compensate for shortcomings in the infrastructure sector and accelerate the promotion of new-type urbanization. The second is to continue to optimize the investment environment and continuously guide funds into the real economy. It is to further reduce barriers to entry of private capital, accelerate market-oriented reforms in education, medical care, pensions, communications and other fields, and continue to enhance economic vitality. & rdquo; Xu Guangrui told reporters.
