Core tip: it is reported that after the completion of the change of government in March, local governments have launched a large number of investment projects and are now attracting all-round investment. And despite the fact that various localities have held meetings to speed up investment work, it is expected that the national economy will not be as high as in the past. The reason for this is that at present, there is a surplus in all areas of full competition, while in areas where there is no surplus for the time being, the government needs to liberalize investment access. "Some people are already asking about these projects." On April 15, a person from the Jiangxi railway department said when talking about the 22.8 billion yuan railway investment project just announced by the province. Objective

Core tip: it is reported that after the completion of the change of government in March, local governments have launched a large number of investment projects and are now attracting all-round investment. And despite the fact that various localities have held meetings to speed up investment work, it is expected that the national economy will not be as high as in the past. The reason for this is that at present, there is a surplus in all areas of full competition, while in areas where there is no surplus for the time being, the government needs to liberalize investment access.

"Some people are already asking about these projects."

On April 15, a person from the Jiangxi railway department said when talking about the 22.8 billion yuan railway investment project just announced by the province.

At present, Jiangxi Province has listed 780 major industrial investment projects, totaling 380 billion yuan. In addition to railway and highway infrastructure projects such as the Wujiu passenger dedicated line, it also includes various smelting, solar energy, automobiles, textiles and clothing, building materials and other projects. In addition, Jiangxi also listed 420 modern service industry investment projects, involving a total of 289.4 billion, including various logistics parks, hotels and so on.

Such a huge content, whether the final funding landing, remains to be seen. However, the desire of various localities to speed up infrastructure investment and thus stimulate rapid economic development is clear.

Statistics released by the National Bureau of Statistics on April 15 showed that the national economy grew by 7.7 per cent in the first quarter, down from 7.8 per cent for the whole of last year and 7.9 per cent in the fourth quarter of last year. This makes some institutions expect the economy will continue to pull fast in the first quarter of this year to judge.

Bank of Communications analysts believe that the downturn in electricity and rail freight in the first quarter reflects the weakness of the real economy. Manufacturing investment in fixed asset investment grew by only 18.7 per cent in the first quarter, the slowest quarterly growth rate in nearly a decade. Taking into account the current future investment and export demand rebound, consumer demand slowdown and other factors, it is expected that the economic growth rate in 2013 may be slightly higher than that in 2012, the economic growth rate of about 8%.

"The only way is reform. Only by gradually liberalizing factor prices, relaxing restrictions on the entry of private capital, stimulating the vitality of private investment and deepening the reform of the market economy system is the key to restarting China's new economic growth cycle." He said.

A large number of local investment projects to attract investment

It is reported that after the completion of the change of government in March, local governments have launched a large number of investment projects, and are now beginning to attract all-round investment.

A project leader of Jiangxi investment promotion told reporters that at present, some investors are negotiating with Jiangxi government departments. "But the specific content of the released project and the form of return need more in-depth communication."

Reporters learned that the recent Guizhou, Shaanxi and other projects are also increasing investment. Among them, on April 10, Guizhou introduced hundreds of billions of investment projects to the Yangtze River Delta. The local area said that it had facilitated a total of 122 related projects to reach investment cooperation agreements, involving 131.587 billion billion yuan.

Sichuan also took out 16 projects to attract investment nationwide, involving a total mileage of about 1672 kilometers of roads and a total investment of about 207.7 billion yuan. This includes the southern section of the Chengdu Economic Zone Ring Expressway (Jianyang-Pujiang section) and the Yibin City Transit Expressway (Leyi-Yizhao section).

This kind of large-scale investment has also appeared after the change of government in the past. But the current scale is so large and there are many provinces. Liu Huiyong, secretary-general of the China Investment Association, believes that specific analysis is needed.

"How to solve the problem of funds can be adopted in many ways, and it is a good way to liberalize to private capital. As for the return situation, we can study it in detail. As for some industrial projects, it depends on the specific situation, that is, whether they can have core competitiveness." Liu Huiyong said.

It is reported that this investment project in Jiangxi involves many overcapacity projects, such as 31 photovoltaic projects, with a total investment of 16.46 billion yuan.

Steel industry analysts pointed out that crude steel increased by 9.1 in the first quarter of this year, which translates into an annual crude steel output of nearly 0.8 billion tons, which is already the highest value in history. Steel was mostly at a loss last year, but so far it is still expanding production capacity because of local tax and employment needs. In fact, there is almost no surplus in the industry at present, "so the more backward production capacity is eliminated, the more production capacity is expanded, or because the local economy needs to expand and need fiscal revenue."

The economy is difficult to pull up quickly in the second quarter.

And despite the fact that various localities have held meetings to speed up investment work, it is expected that the national economy will not be as high as in the past.

The reason for this is that at present, there is a surplus in all areas of full competition, while in areas where there is no surplus for the time being, the government needs to liberalize investment access.

Analysts believe that due to the slight slowdown in consumer demand, although investment and exports have accelerated, the growth of local investment is not optimistic due to capital reasons. Therefore, the economic growth rate in 2013 is expected to be only slightly higher than that in 2012, initially expected to be around 8%; the quarterly economic growth rate is slightly lower at both ends and slightly higher in the middle.

He said that the next fiscal policy will still be active, but monetary policy will remain neutral, and it is difficult to relax significantly. The current acceleration of the business tax reform to value-added tax means that the government's tax cuts will increase. At present, the investment power of private enterprises is still insufficient. "If the government leads the investment, private enterprises are not willing to enter many surplus areas of investment."

Data show that the growth rate of electricity consumption in March was still the second lowest in 46 months since June 2009. In the first quarter, the growth rate of manufacturing investment in fixed asset investment was only 18.7, which was the lowest quarterly growth rate in nearly a decade.

Sheng Laiyun, a spokesman for the National Bureau of statistics, believes that the low economic speed is normal. On the whole, it is running in the range of 7.4-7.9 per cent, which is a steady growth. At present, the employment situation is generally relatively stable, and the income of residents is still increasing steadily.
