China Cuts 2019 GDP Growth Target to 6.0-6.5%, Focusing on All-Round Economic Stimulus and Trade Negotiation with the US

From internal economic restructuring to the risks and challenges from external forces that are increasingly serious and complex, China is redirecting and loosening its fiscal and monetary policies in 2019 to sustain the economic slowdown and to effectively boost economic growth as well as moving forward in constructive trade negotiations with the US to reach an agreement between the two countries.

EIC believes that China could avoid a hard landing by swiftly and continuously implementing their economic policies with the help of various fiscal and financial tools.

No matter which direction the Chinese economy is moving towards, both the world and Thailand’s economies would be affected through trade, investments and tourism.

What is the “Two Sessions”?

Two Sessions 2019 is the most important meeting on the Chinese political calendar. Starting with the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) on March 3, 2019 followed by the National People’s Congress (NPC) on March 5, 2019 and concluded on March 15, 2019.

This particular “Two Sessions” is of distinct interest because, in addition to the report and evaluation of the government’s performance of the past year, the international arena has been paying special attention to the direction of China’s economy as well as its economic and social growth target along with its announcement of 2019 policies and strategies for the upcoming future.

China’s Economic Target and Policy Directions in 2019

Premier Li Keqiang admitted at the beginning of the first day of the National People’s Congress’ meeting that China’s economy is facing volatility and external challenges; the slowdown of the world’s economy, the complex global financial conditions, and the trade war with the US, including the country’s three critical battles, namely; risks in the financial sector, poverty, and pollution causing continuous slowdown in China’s economy in 2018, and that China’s economic growth in 2019 will greatly affect the world’s economy as well.

Amidst domestic and international risks, Premier Li Keqiang announced lowering China’s growth target to 6.0-6.5% in 2019, as expected by economists around the world, with the implementation of proactive fiscal policy and prudent monetary policy in order to; maintain economic growth as targeted, promote high-quality economic development, and create stability within the financial sector as well as pushing China to become an economy driven by domestic consumption and innovation alongside moving forward with trade and investment reformation to end conflict with the US.
