JIC Institute of Investment Research released The New Era New Investment - China Investment Development Report (2018) at a press conference in Shanghai on April 3, 2018. Huang Jianjun, Vice President of JIC, attended the event and delivered a speech. Executives from JIC subsidiaries and JIC research personnel also weighed in with their insights on the macroeconomic landscape and investment opportunities in 2018 with a central focus on studying and implementing the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress and the Central Economic Work Conference. The event drew nearly 100 participants, including members of the press and various sectors of society.
In his address, Huang Jianjun noted that the global economic environment was expected to continue to improve in 2018, and the global economy would continue to recover. However, he stressed that problems and challenges could not be ignored. The rise of global trade protectionism and changes in monetary and fiscal policies would all have spillover effects and should be given high priority. 2018 marks the first year of the implementation of the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress, and it is a crucial year for securing a decisive victory in establishing a moderately prosperous society in all respects and for implementing the 13th Five-Year Plan. The Chinese economy will shift to higher-quality and more efficient growth, and investment needs to focus more on changes in national policies and look for investment opportunities along national policy orientations.
Huang Jianjun also stressed that JIC has always been committed to the philosophy of value investment and grasped the historical opportunities of China's economic restructuring, transformation and upgrading. It has actively served the country's "go global" strategy and pursued strategic investments in such fields as financial services, industrial manufacturing, cultural consumption, and information technology, expanding its presence in regions including North America, Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia, thereby building up its brand and visibility in these markets.
Several executives from JIC subsidiaries also delivered presentations on development trends and investment opportunities in 2018 in a wide array of industries and fields including advanced manufacturing, cultural consumption, information technology, elderly care and health, financial and asset management, and Xiong'an New Area.
The event saw the official release of the China Investment Development Report (2018). The report, which debuted in 2012 and in its seventh edition this year, closely examines the new trends and changes in China’s investment environment, policies and markets since the 19th CPC National Congress, and offers analysis of the development trends in the financial and asset management industry. The spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress and Chinese characteristics in the new era feature prominently in the report.
The event garnered extensive attention from the general public and press. More than 20 Chinese and international financial media outlets, including Xinhua, CBN, Caixin, Securities Daily, 21st Century Business Herald, China Securities Journal, International Finance News and Reuters, all covered the event.
