What Should the Determinants of Economic Growth Be?

Will China continue to experience an economic slowdown in the second half of the year? This thought has once again caused concern among industry professionals about the contributing factors to GDP growth. At present, the figures suggest that we cannot be optimistic about the situation as sustainable growth elements are not yet strong enough.

Recently, the National Bureau of Statistics reclassified research and development expenditure as fixed capital formation, and revised GDP data in accordance with the new calculation method. Tracing back historical figures over the past 10 years, the revised annual GDP growth rate increased by 0.057 percentage points on average. Although the impact on the historical growth rate was only marginal, the ground gained by R&D will have a profound impact on GDP figures in the future. Under the new method, the importance of the final consumption’s contribution to GDP growth has diminished while gross capital formation now plays a bigger part.
