Coming soon: My report on China's investment policies

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is about to publish an update on China's inward and outward investment policies. This will be in the form of a Working Paper under my authorship. This continues the series of three Investment Policies of China that I wrote and published from 2003 to 2008.

What was in those Reviews? What will be in the forthcoming update?

中国对外投资:一个新兴的政策框架 (主要资料汇编)

国际可持续发展研究院(IISD)进来出版了一本资料汇编,叫做中国对外投资:一个新兴的政策框架

本汇编涵盖的文件绝大多数是于2000年1月到2012年1月期间颁布的,包括了中国
发布“走出去”战略以及后续的相关举措。2000年前颁布的政策有两部:周恩来总理
于1964年提出的《对外经济技术援助的八项原则》、赵紫阳总理于1983年提出的《中
非经济技术合作四项原则》。这两部文件反映了在2000年之前的几十年里中国政府一
直鼓励对外投资,这为之后的中国对外投资的政策方向定了基调。

Chinese Outward Investment: a documentary compilation

The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) recently published Chinese Outward Investment: An emerging policy framework, a compilation of 80 official texts, dating from January 2000 to January 2012, that document the evolution of China's policy towards outward investment. This book is a repository of primary materials, intended for use as a reference by researchers and analysts. While such documents are mostly retrievable on official Chinese government websites, they are not all in the same place and some are only available in Chinese, so the editors, Nathalie Bernasconi-Osterwalder,  Lise Johnson and Jianping Zhang, have performed a valuable service by collecting them in one place and supplying English translations.

America's Chinese Dream


My friend and former OECD colleague John West has kindly shared with us his assessment of the opportunities that China's economy provides for the United States.

The US economy is wobbling slowly forward. Europe is just plain wobbling. And China has moved onto a slower growth path.

But China's role in the global economy is also changing fundamentally, providing America with new growth opportunities, a "Chinese dream".

2012-2013 年中国宏观经济报告

中国人民大学经济研究所 

迈向新复苏和新结构、超越新常态的中国宏观经济 


2012 年是中国经济从“次萧条”到“复苏重现”的一年。在消费持 续逆势上扬、基础建设投资大幅增长、房地产政策微调带来的“刚需”释放、货 币政策和财政政策的持续放松以及全球市场情绪稳定带来的外需稳定等因素的 作用下,中国宏观经济开始在 2012 年 9 月出现“触底反弹”,并在十八大政治换 届效应、存货周期逆转、消费持续增长、外需小幅回升、投资持续加码等因素的 作用下,重返复苏的轨道。2012 年前 3 季度回落超预期,而第 4 季度复苏幅度 也可能超预期。
