Fast growth and macro-control in 2006
In 2006, the first year of the 11th Five Year Plan, fast growth and macro-control have become the two key concepts in national economic development. In the first three quarters of this year, China has witnessed a growth rate of 10.7 percent.
China had a bumper harvest in summer and has improved efficiency in enterprises. This has led to a growth in financial revenue, stable prices and a steady increase in the incomes of both urban and rural residents. The slowdown of the real estate market has shown the effectiveness of macro-control policies. In the first three quarters of this year, real estate investment increased at a rate of 24.2 percent, 7.7 percentage points lower than in the same period of last year.
By the end of the third quarter, both currency supply and growth of loans had slowed. Some industries, including coal, copper smelting, aluminum and cement had made progress in restructuring and orientation. Some positive changes have also been seen in the real estate market. The housing supply structure has been readjusted and housing prices in some areas have been falling. Many provinces have put an emphasis on medium and lower price housing, medium and small-sized commercial housing and economical housing. The mix of exported products continues to be optimized.
In the first ten months of this year, China's high value-added machinery products have been exported for US$439.7 billion, a 29.7 percent increase, accounting for 56.4 percent of total exports. Export of crude oil has fallen 5.09 million tons, representing a 12.5 percent decrease, while export of refined oil has fallen to 9.99 million tons, 17.6 percent less than the same period last year.
