2019 26th Issue: Promoting High-quality Development in Small and Medium-sized Cities with “New Industrial City” - 2019-08-07
[Abstract]At present, China’s economy is at a critical stage, especially in the context of US-China economic and trade frictions. As a result, China’s economy is faced with increasing downward pressure and two prominent problems. On the one hand, some export-oriented enterprises are under great pressure, especially companies that have the United States as a direct export market. On the other hand, some export enterprises have reallocated their production to Southeast Asian countries. Therefore, we need to actively explore the domestic demand market and improve the capacity of domestic industries urgently. In the future, the re-arrangement of the global manufacturing industry chain and the diversification of commodity origins are unavoidable, thus, we must enhance the endogenous growth and resilience of China’s economy.

2019 23rd Issue: Revitalizing the Northeast economy by supporting the local private economy - 2019-07-16
[Abstract]The overall economic growth of Northeast China has slowed down since 2010, especially in Liaoning Province, which experienced a free-fall decline in 2016. By 2018, the contribution rate of Liaoning’s private economy to regional GDP was only about 45%, tax revenue was close to 30%, and urban employment was less than 64%. These figures are lower than the national average. In terms of the proportion of the private economy, the three northeastern provinces are lower than the central and western provinces such as Anhui (57.8%), Hubei (55.5%), Hunan (58.1%), and Sichuan (56.4%). The scale and strength of private enterprises in Northeast China are relatively weak. In the newly released list of the top 500 private enterprises in 2018, only nine come from the three northeastern provinces.
