Official predicts that China will play a crucial role in global economic recovery, says Reuters

In a speech at the Boao Forum for Asia, China’s top legislator Zhao Leji emphasized the country’s goal of being a strong driving force for the global economic recovery in the coming year. He highlighted tech innovation as a new point of economic growth and expressed willingness to collaborate with other countries in this area.

Recent economic indicators have shown a positive start to the year for China’s economy, offering some relief to policymakers amidst challenges in the property sector and local government debt. Despite uncertainties in the global economic landscape, Zhao reiterated China’s opposition to trade protection and decoupling.

Zhao promised greater openness in China’s markets for foreign investors, with plans to reduce the “negative list” of sectors restricted for foreign investment. However, inbound foreign direct investment has decreased in the first two months of the year, prompting some foreign businesses to diversify their operations away from China.

Beijing announced policies to support economic growth earlier in March and set a growth target of around 5% for 2024, showing confidence in the country’s ability to rebound and improve in the long term. Despite these challenges, Zhao emphasized that investing in China is investing in the future of the economy.
