China needs to continue improving the RMB’s attraction as a financial transaction currency by marketizing the exchange rate and opening up the capital market. In the long-term, it means that the RMB internationalization will be more driven by being used in pricing and as reserve currency rather than by cross-border trade settlement.

The tool of negative interest rates has not worked, but has spread to dangerous levels. If the current global crisis bailout methods are not fundamentally reformed, and the old policy options continue to be applied, the possibility of another global crisis in the future can not be ruled out.

“Dollar liquidity shortage” is inevitable in the future, and improving liquidity management including cross-border capital flow and monetary reserves is the key to systematic risk control and crisis management.

In the long-term, a series of regional free trade agreements and the new global rules conform to China’s own economic restructuring and reform direction. China must enhance its level of liberalization in such areas as goods trade, service trade and investment, break through market barriers and get rid of institutional barriers. Making use of an open competition will promote the country’s upgrading in the global value chain.

Since the global financial crisis of 2008, the growth track and pattern of the world economy have undergone dramatic changes, and maintaining an easy monetary policy by the central banks will not be enough to remedy the situation. New “supply substitution” is needed to improve the productivity and innovative output of all factors, and to earnestly promote global economic growth.

Systemic risks like a new round of global currency devaluation and capital outflow could threaten economic stability and growth. In the past two years, the spree of short-term speculative capital and the RMB arbitrage rose and accumulated a lot of risks. A new global monetary management mechanism and a more stable global exchange rate structure are urgently needed.

As it acts upon the 13th Five Year Plan, Beijing must combine government fiscal investment, corporate R&D, industrial investment, venture capital, bank credit investment, capital market financing, science funding and more, to make a financial system with a full range of support to update China’s economy. An efficiently operating system will be key to the nation’s future competitiveness.
