Report: China’s speed of development rarely seen

The speed of China’s development has rarely occurred in economic h

istory, with the country’s economic aggregate breaking 90 trillion yuan over the last 70 yea

rs for China to become the world’s second-largest economy in 2018, said financial news outlet Yicai on Friday.

In 1952 China’s GDP was 67.9 billion yuan, with per-capita GDP standing at 119 yuan.

In 2018 the two figures surpassed 90 trillion yuan and 64,644 yuan, making for respective multiplications of 1,325 and 542 times.

The first Five-Year Plan (1953-1957) began China’s industrialization, concentrating efforts on developing heav

y industry and establishing the foundations for the modernization of national defense.

On the plan’s completion in 1957, China’s GDP reached 106.9 billion yuan, a 57 percent increase compared with 1952.

After a half-month visit to China, a team from the IM

led by Asia and Pacific Department Deputy Director Kenneth Kang, summarized that “China can play an impor

tant role and would benefit from further opening up and other structural reforms that enhance competition.”

The previously issued policy is sufficient to stabilize growth by 2020, despite the rec

ent US tariff hike, according to the fund’s report. “No additional policy easing is ne

eded, provided there are no further increases in tariffs or a significant slowdown in growth.”

Only if the trade tensions further escalate and threaten economic and financial stability, a

dditional policy easing, such as fiscal expansion, could be used to stabilize the economy, it said.
