10th Summer Davos Forum, Tianjin

“The Fourth Industrial Revolution and Its Transformational Impact”

Chinese economy optimistic

Downward pressure on the Chinese economy is still huge, and difficulty still exists. We faced and undertook difficult tasks, showing that we have the determination to overcome it. Chinese economy is more about hope than difficulty.

New driving engines

Against the downward pressure, we did not take strong stimulative measures. Instead, we adopted new macro-control measures, pushed forward structural reform, and tried to create new growth engines while upgrading the traditional ones.

As time goes by, new growth engines are emerging, which will surely support the future economy in China.

Sharing economy

The sharing economy means crowd innovation. Everyone can take part in it and benefit from it.

It helps establish a reasonable pattern of income distribution, provide equal opportunities, expand the middle-income group, help each person realize the potential and promote social equity and justice.

China a responsible country

Overcapacity is a global issue, and we will take active measures to cut production capacity, which in turn shows China as a big responsible country.

Joint efforts

Amid globalization, it’s impossible for any country to talk about domestic development while disconnecting from the global economic environment. We should join our hands to go forward.

“Charting a New Course for Growth”

Economy remains stable

The government has taken effective measures to counter economic slowdown. Meanwhile, positive factors are increasing to support a stable economy.

Economic growth is resilient

China’s economy is highly resilient and can endure any possible impact. The Chinese people are striving toward a well-off society, a great goal by 2020 that will summon strong social cohesion and power.

China remains a powerhouse for world economy

Although more than 70 million people are still living in poverty in China, the nation already has a large middle-income group with increasing consumption capacity.

China is not a source of risk but a powerhouse for global economic growth.

Government needs partners

Mass entrepreneurship and innovation require comprehensive and available public products and services supported by structural reform.

In the process, the government should encourage participation from private and foreign capital.

Continue opening up

China’s reform is a process that requires continuous opening-up and integration with the world, and the government will make every effort to make the country the most attractive destination for global investment.

“Creating Value Through Innovation”

Deepening comprehensive reform

China will continue to deepen administration reform and cancel unnecessary approvals within five years.

The ongoing administration streamlining will unleash the potential of the market and inject vitality to economic growth.

Mass entrepreneurship and innovation

Innovation supports China’s economic growth, and the government will advocate mass entrepreneurship and innovation to unleash the potential of the Chinese people.

More focus on economic restructuring

Under the new landscape of the domestic and global economy, China will pay more attention to economic restructuring rather than to short-term fluctuations in some indexes.

No zero-sum game among nations

Global prosperity needs win-win and beneficial cooperation among different nations. China will firmly stay on the peaceful road of development and become an active participant of and contributor to the international system.

Open, fair and unified international market

China advocates an open, fair and unified international market, and supports bilateral and multilateral free trade zones.

China is committed to building a high-level network of free trade zones and against all types of protectionism, as well as trade wars.

“Meeting the Innovation Imperative”

China to keep sustainable, steady growth

As long as we stick to long-term goals and resolve immediate problems, the Chinese economy will certainly keep sustainable, steady growth, just as a huge wheel sets course.

New season of economic miracle

Now comes a new season of the Chinese economic miracle, one of better quality and higher efficiency, and I guarantee you even more exciting stories to come.

Reform and development to benefit people

China’s future economic growth must be based on higher efficiency and better quality, with resource conservation and ecological protection.

It will also be powered by innovation in science and technology, and secure employment and people’s income. In other words, results of reform and development should benefit the majority of our people.

More participation in international governance

As an ancient Chinese saying goes, “A gentleman is always ready to help others attain their goals.” We believe that only by helping each other can we all attain our goals.

We are ready to take a more active part in international governance and do our best to contribute to international public good. We are ready to share our poverty reduction successes and offer more assistance to fellow developing countries. We will share the responsibility contribute to a strong, sustainable and balanced world economy.

No country can live in isolation

In the world today, the trend toward economic globalization, a multipolar world and IT application is gaining momentum. We live in a global village. No country can live in isolation.
