China’s Industrial Economy Stabilizes and Recovers, Electric Cars Shine
China’s industrial economy has shown signs of stabilization and recovery in the first three quarters of 2023, according to China’s Minister of Industry and Information Technology, Jin Zhuanglong. In an interview with China state television CCTV, Jin expressed confidence that the industrial economy would maintain its recovery momentum in the fourth quarter.
Industrial output in China grew by 4.5 percent in September compared to the same period last year, matching the pace seen in August. This growth can be attributed to policy support measures that have helped stabilize certain sectors of the world’s second-largest economy.
Meanwhile, the new energy sector, particularly electric cars, has emerged as a shining star in China’s industrial recovery. Car sales in China rose by 2.1 percent during the first nine months of the year, totaling 15.41 million units. Although overseas markets continue to be an important area of growth, there may be some concerns about exports due to an EU probe into China-made electric vehicles.
Looking ahead, Jin highlighted the potential impact of cutting-edge technologies on China’s industrial landscape. He emphasized the importance of artificial intelligence in manufacturing and medical fields, humanoid robots, and the metaverse as symbols of the future scientific and technological revolution.
However, amid these positive developments, China’s securities regulator has expressed concerns about preventing a debt implosion at the local government level. The regulator emphasized the need to address bond default risks associated with large property firms and strengthen risk monitoring alerts for the debt of local government financing vehicles (LGFVs).
In conclusion, China’s industrial economy has demonstrated stability and recovery in recent months, with electric cars playing a vital role in this resurgence. While challenges remain, such as potential export issues and local government debt, China’s focus on cutting-edge technologies and futuristic innovations positions the country for continued growth in the industrial sector.
