Lu Ting: China's economic trend in the next 10 years

In the next decade, China's GDP growth rate will drop to about 4%, mainly because of two reasons: 1. The population and labor force are deteriorating rapidly. 2. The rate of return on investment is decreasing;

The downward range of China's investment growth may exceed the previous estimates;

The trend of saving and consumption: The proportion of consumption in GDP increases, and the growth rate of consumption begins to surpass that of investment;

China's urbanization is an inevitable trend;

In terms of geographical region, the economic growth of big cities in the East is in highly sustainable;

Changes in corporate profits and corporate survival: The driving force of growth will change a lot. In the future, China's economic growth will decline, which does not mean that the growth rate of corporate profits will also decline.


"Some of the negative views overseas have on China's economy are really misjudgments made because they don't understand China's national conditions, some are investors' attempts to influence the market, some are even sensationalism, but some can be used for reference. As a backward developing country, we must learn from the lessons of developed countries, and we should learn from the experience.

My personal opinion on whether China's economy will collapse is that the weakness of China's stock market in recent years is not the result of the Western malicious comments. In the final analysis, the confidence of domestic and international investors in the Chinese market is relatively low. The market fell in response as soon as there appears any actions. "
