Under the severe and complex international situation and the severe impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, China has overcame the obstacles and become the only major economy in the world to achieve positive economic growth this year.

These are all centered around a central goal, with high synergy and mutual support, and are very correct and scientific decisions.”
Jones believes that insisting on accelerating scientific and technological innovation and developing a stable industrial chain supply chain is the top priority of China’s next step in China’s economic development, because the key to economic growth is technological progress, and the development of new technologies can ensure sustained economic growth.

We should continue to implement an active fiscal policy and a prudent monetary policy, maintain the necessary support for economic recovery, and operate policies more accurately and effectively, do not make sharp corners, and grasp the time and effectiveness of policies. Liang Guoyong believes that at present, such a policy orientation is very necessary to enhance confidence and promote economic recovery.
Mao Xuxin, chief economist of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, believes that while maintaining a reasonable and moderate monetary policy and controlling the risk of financial debt, China’s adoption of active and targeted fiscal policies is conducive to promoting scientific and technological innovation, adjusting and improving income distribution and economic structure.” Such a relatively balanced monetary and fiscal policy not only helps to expand domestic demand, maintain economic security and healthy development, but also provides strong support for the autonomous and controllable and high-level opening of the supply chain to the outside world.
