Original title: Blue Book expects Beijing GDP to grow by 6.5% in 2018

China News Agency, Beijing, July (reporter Wang Enbo) 11 (reporter Wang Enbo) Beijing Social Science Academy and Social Science Literature Publishing House 11, jointly issued the "Beijing Blue Book: Beijing economic development report (2017-2018)", which is expected to grow 6.5% in 2018 GDP, and the overall development momentum is good.

The blue book pointed out that as Beijing continued to solve the non capital function, the work of "changing the cage for birds" was promoted orderly, and its industrial structure adjustment and the new and old kinetic energy conversion will continue. In addition, Beijing will intensify its efforts in energy conservation, emission reduction and environmental governance. These hard constraints will have a certain impact on Beijing's economic growth in 2018.

The blue book is expected to slow the overall growth of its investment in 2018 in the context of speeding up the construction of "four centers" and the non capital function of Beijing. In particular, hundreds of billions of RMB projects, such as the urban sub center and the construction of the new airport, will be gradually completed, which will slow the growth of infrastructure investment.

In terms of consumption, healthy consumption is expected to become a bright spot. According to statistics, the growth of health consumption in Beijing in 2017 was at the top of the eight categories of consumption expenditure. The high degree of aging of the resident population brought about great health consumption, such as nursing, health care, health care, physical examination and so on. Overall, the total consumption of Beijing in 2018 is expected to increase by 8.8% over the same period last year, a slight increase over the previous year.


The blue book also points out that a new round of health - price reform, such as a new round of health - price reform, will boost Beijing's inflation level, but the ongoing structural reform of the supply side will continue to change the structure of the CPI increase. On the whole, the total consumer price level in Beijing is expected to rise by 2.5% over the same period in 2018, which is at an acceptable moderate inflation rate.

For the future development direction of the capital, the blue book thinks that Beijing should seize the "ox nose", promote the organic renewal of urban construction, the transformation and upgrading of the industrial structure, the rational distribution of industrial space and the reshaping of the overall economic structure.

To this end, Beijing should focus on the construction of the industrial system of solid economy, scientific and technological innovation, modern finance and human resources development. At the same time, we should develop new economic forms such as shared economy, platform economy, customer economy, digital economy and so on, and cultivate new kinetic energy for economic development.
