Consumption of "ballast" chassis is stable and kinetic energy is strong
-- the National Development and Reform Commission responds to current hot economic issues
After the "double 11" shopping spree showed the surging vitality of consumption, the latest macroeconomic data confirmed once again the great potential of China's consumption of "ballast stone": in the first 10 months of this year, retail sales of physical goods maintained relatively rapid growth. Service consumption is growing relatively faster.
What measures will China take to better promote consumption upgrading and develop consumption new business type? How to ensure the basic stability of pork supply and prices? What is the situation of natural gas supply guarantee? On November 15, the National Development and Reform Commission held a press conference to respond to relevant hot issues.
Consumption new business type will develop rapidly
The total transaction volume of Tmall's "double 11" on the same day reached 268.4 billion yuan, and the cumulative order value of the "11 / 11 JD.com Global good Festival" exceeded 204.4 billion yuan. During this year's "double 11" period, 500 million consumers resonated with more than 200000 brands, millions of businesses and the whole society, forming a strong wave of consumption. As Zhang Yong, chairman and chief executive of the Alibaba Group, said, so many enterprises are willing to participate wholeheartedly in "double 11" because we see the market, the opportunities, and the power of consumption.
"just in the past, the turnover of the major e-commerce companies has repeatedly hit new highs, and we can feel a huge consumption boom coming on the face." Meng Wei, deputy director of the Policy Research Office of the National Development and Reform Commission and spokesman for the National Development and Reform Commission, said.
Meng Wei said: since the beginning of this year, China's consumer goods market has been operating smoothly on the whole. From the total point of view, the basic role of consumption continues to appear; from a regional point of view, the growth rate of rural consumption is higher than that of urban consumption; from the perspective of channels, online consumption is obviously faster than offline consumption. China has the advantage of super-large-scale market, coupled with the continuous application of new technological means, give full play to the basic role of consumption in economic development, still has great potential and space to tap.
Meng Wei said that in the future, it will further stimulate the potential of domestic consumption, actively develop consumption new business type and new models, and promote new consumption through industrial integration. For example, focus on the development of clothing, home and other fields of large-scale, personalized customization, as well as smart phones, home appliances and other fields of full-chain intelligent ecological services; Focus on the development of surgical robots, medical imaging and other high-end medical equipment, health management, accurate care and other value-added services.
At the same time, online and offline integration to expand consumption. We will step up the digital transformation of education and training, medical care, old-age services, infant and child care, culture and entertainment, and sports events, and actively develop shared consumption, customized consumption, experience consumption, and "intelligence +" service consumption. We will improve the network of rural logistics infrastructure, promote special actions for efficient distribution in urban and rural areas, and promote the high-quality development of rural e-commerce.
Pork consumption demand is guaranteed
The price of pork is related to the livelihood of the people.
Consumer prices across the country rose 3.8 per cent in October from a year earlier, 0.8 percentage points higher than the previous month and 0.9 per cent higher than the previous month. Meng Wei believes that the recent year-on-year increase in CPI has expanded, mainly due to the significant rise in the price of pork and its substitutes, leading to a rise in overall food prices.
At present, the National Development and Reform Commission, together with relevant departments, has actively carried out the work of ensuring the supply and price of pork in the market, and has introduced and implemented a series of policies and measures. In the future, we will further do a good job in the implementation of policies and measures to ensure that the market is basically stable and that the basic livelihood of the people in need will not be affected.
Meng Wei said that it is necessary to continue to increase efforts to promote pig production, increase investment support within the central budget, support the construction of large-scale pig farms and pig breeding farms, expand the scope of the project for the utilization of livestock and poultry manure, and promote the stable production and supply of live pigs. We will increase the production and supply of beef and mutton, poultry and eggs through various channels, expand the import of pork, beef and mutton and other substitutes, and properly implement the reserve of frozen pork. At present, the central and local governments have established a certain scale of frozen pork reserves, will choose the opportunity to put into the market to protect pork consumption demand.
"We should focus on the people in need, such as the minimum living standard in urban and rural areas, and guide the localities to start the price subsidy linkage mechanism in a timely manner in the light of rising prices, and issue temporary price subsidies in full." Meng Wei said: it is necessary to monitor the situation of pork prices throughout the country and around the country every day, study and judge the trend in the later period, promptly identify emerging problems, prevent and solve them, and cooperate with relevant departments to strengthen market supervision and maintain good market order.
The supply of natural gas is relatively adequate
At present, the heating season has already begun. What is the situation of natural gas supply and supply, and can the price remain stable?
Meng Wei said: since November, the National Development and Reform Commission, together with various localities, relevant departments, and enterprises, has established a daily dispatching mechanism for ensuring the supply and supply of natural gas, keeping abreast of the dynamics of natural gas supply and demand at any time, and finding and solving problems affecting supply in a timely manner. From the recent operation, the growth of gas demand is relatively stable, the supply of natural gas resources is relatively sufficient, and a good balance between supply and demand has been maintained.
Meng Wei said that during the heating season, China will take effective measures to keep domestic natural gas prices in a reasonable range. The implementation of "quantity and price guarantee" for residents' gas consumption, that is, on the basis of ensuring the total supply, the prices of the provincial benchmark stations set by the state will not rise. On the basis of ensuring the supply of gas, the price is appropriately adjusted according to the relationship between supply and demand, but the floating range is not more than 20% on the basis of the price of the benchmark gate station on the basis of ensuring the supply of gas for the livelihood of the people, such as schools, hospitals, public transport and so on. The prices of other market-oriented gas quantities shall be determined through consultation between the supply and demand sides. In order to focus on ensuring the price stability of the people's livelihood, all localities will no longer adjust the sales prices of gas terminals for residents during the warm season.
