Optimism Towards Xi's Reform
Doubts About Xi's Reform
by beneficiaries of the old system
Unrealistic expectations as a result of his
reluctance to give up government control
He has a vision, but
lacks a real plan
"...few details on the sequencing and time table for reforms."
Lack of urgency
as a leader to be taken seriously
Steps taken to
address past issues
New "leading small group" and State Security Commission
Bold reform plans
"This is by far the most ambitious, comprehensive reform plan that I've ever seen,"
Diluting Government Control
"...economic reform is a necessary tool to ensure the longevity of the present political system."
"...proclaiming sweeping goals, without providing any road map at all for getting there."
Three Main Roles
- State Supporting Strategic Industries
- State-controlled Special Economic Zones
- Government Role in Creating Joint Ventures
- Aim= attract foreign investment/technology (joint ventures)
- SEZ's part of export-oriented strategy
- Incentives for foreign investors:
labor, land use, tax incentives
Creating Joint Ventures
- Partnership between foreign and chinese investors
local work force/ facilities, good relationships, entry to industrial sectors
conflicting interests, cost, division of profits, risk with intellectual property
NC: Until there are specific and realistic policies in place to work towards President Xi's ideas, there is no real reason to believe that reform will come quickly enough to save China from economic collapse.
joint venture failure
- Jeep could set up offices in Beijing, but after a few years, Chinese take over
- Safeguard intellectual property
Different priorities and goals
- Additional Problems:
CH consumers couldn't afford, culture clash in work site
- Negotiations over exit conditions

Transitioning from an investment-driven to a
Reducing monopoly power
Lending through non-state banks
Private sector taking the lead in
A comprehensive reform plan was introduced to put China’s public finances on a more stable footing.
For 2015–16 average growth is expected to ease to slightly above 7 percent
GP: Not necessarily boom, but slowed down growth doesn't mean bust. 2nd largest economy would need catastrophic event to bust, largest exporter maintains external stability. "China will be lucky to grow over 7%. Despite that, China will continue to be the world’s fastest growing major economy this year and next, and arguably into 2016 as well, says Bill Adams, senior international economist for PNC Financial in Pittsburgh."
LB: China has a rocky road ahead of them because of the many issues that they need to take care of, but in the long run their growth outlook is solid.
Without policy action, the slowdown in China’s potential growth in the medium term could be more severe.
Growth is now decelerating toward 7%
(with his reforms)
International Economists say direction of the Chinese economy is plainly downward.
