Beijing, February 3 (reporter Li Jinlei) – as of February 2, in addition to Hebei, Heilongjiang, the remaining 29 provinces in the government work report have made clear the economic growth target in 2021.
On the whole, the GDP growth targets set by 29 provinces in 2021 are not less than 6%, and the GDP growth targets set by Hubei and Hainan are currently the highest, more than 10%.
The GDP growth targets of the top three economic provinces are all above 6%
In terms of total GDP, Guangdong, Jiangsu and Shandong are among the top three. The GDP growth targets of these three economic provinces in 2021 are all above 6%.
Among them, the GDP of “Guangdong boss” exceeded 11 trillion yuan for the first time in 2020, with a year-on-year growth of 2.3%. In 2020, the GDP of “Su Da Qiang” will exceed 10 trillion yuan for the first time, an increase of 3.7% over the previous year. The GDP of “Lu Dazhuang” in 2020 will be 7312.9 billion yuan, an increase of 3.6% over the previous year.
On February 2, Li Ganjie, governor of Shandong Province, said that the reason why the economic growth target of more than 6% was set is mainly based on the following considerations: first, it is conducive to properly deal with the epidemic situation and the uncertainty of the external environment, leaving room for steady development; second, it is conducive to guiding all localities to put the improvement of quality and efficiency in a more prominent position, make good use of the precious time window, and focus on solving the problems left over by history To promote reform, innovation and high-quality development; third, to gradually release the development potential, not only to lay a good foundation for the start of the 14th five year plan, but also to create conditions for sustainable development in the future; fourth, to be realistic and pragmatic, to work hard, to focus on implementation, and to strive to achieve quality, efficiency and no water growth.
The GDP growth target of Hubei and Hainan is more than 10%
Among the 29 provinces, Hubei and Hainan set the highest GDP growth target of more than 10%, reaching double digits.
Hubei’s GDP growth in 2020 is still negative. After withstanding the huge impact of the 76 day “suspension”, Hubei’s GDP in the first quarter, the first half of the year and the first three quarters of 2020 decreased by 39.2%, 19.3% and 10.4% respectively, and the annual decline narrowed to 5.0%.
Xu Hongcai, deputy director of the economic policy committee of China Policy Science Research Association, told China news. Com that last year, Hubei was the hardest hit by the epidemic and its GDP base was relatively low. This year, there will be a rebound. The expected target of 10% is reasonable. Hainan vigorously promotes the construction of free trade port, which has obvious advantages in policy resources, and its own economic aggregate is relatively small, so it is also necessary to set a higher growth target for the construction of free trade port.
Wang Xiaodong, governor of Hubei Province, pointed out in his government work report that 10% growth is the bottom line requirement. In practical work, we should show the state and style of “fighting”, “grabbing” and “reality”, strive for “progress” on the premise and basis of “stability”, and try our best to strive for better results.
“Last year, the economy of our province was seriously damaged. This year, we should try our best to return to normal. We should not only make up for the losses, but also strive to catch up with the growth we should have, so as to ensure a beautiful start and a wonderful year. By comprehensively analyzing the economic fundamentals and development trend of our province, and considering the low base factor and potential growth rate of last year, the economic growth target of this year is set at more than 10%, which is positive and has strong support. ” Wang Xiaodong said.
In 2020, Hainan’s GDP will be 553.239 billion yuan, ranking 28th in China, with an increase of 3.5%. According to the work report of Hainan government in 2021, Hainan will pay special attention to the early arrangement of free trade port in 2021, make good use of the policies of duty-free shopping “mail delivery” in outlying islands, residents of the island “deposit in outlying islands, return to the island to pick up” and duty-free purchase of imported goods, and strive to exceed 60 billion yuan in duty-free sales.
The top three provinces’ GDP growth targets are still high this year
In 2020, Tibet, Guizhou and Yunnan are the top three in terms of GDP growth. Among them, Tibet leads the country with a growth rate of 7.8%. Guizhou’s GDP growth will reach 4.5% in 2020 and Yunnan’s will reach 4% in 2020.
The GDP growth target of Tibet in 2021 is more than 9%, that of Guizhou in 2021 is about 8%, and that of Yunnan in 2021 is more than 8%.
With the backing of economic growth against the trend in 2020, the GDP growth target of these three provinces in 2021 is still relatively high.
What signal does local GDP growth target release?
According to the latest world economic outlook report recently released by the International Monetary Fund, the global economy will grow by 5.5% and China’s economy will grow by 8.1% in 2021.
At present, more than 20 provinces in China have set an economic growth target of less than 8% in 2021, which is slightly cautious and conservative compared with the forecast of international institutions.
In Xu Hongcai’s view, the target of more than 6% is relatively stable, which is conducive to the continuity and stability of the expected target. It is also the embodiment of the bottom line thinking of the local government and leaving room. After all, there are many uncertainties in the changes of the epidemic situation and the external environment. At the same time, it also reflects that we do not excessively pursue GDP growth, but focus on the improvement of quality and efficiency.
