Macroscopic interpretation

1. In the government conference held on March 5th, Premier Wen Jiabao said that China aims to grow its economy by 7.5% in 2012, which is the first time that the GDP growth is cut from 8% to 7.5% for 8 years.

2. Real estate: As to the real estate control policy, the official has confirmed not to launch new policy, but the current policy will not be loosened. Besides, the scale of indemnificatory housing construction hits a new high.

3. Railway: In the first half year of 2012, the investment to railway reduces compared with the same period last year; while in the second half year, the investment to railway will rebound due to the large-scale relaxation of the currency policy.

4. Highway construction: Though the currency policy in 2012 is positive, the highway construction still faces the capital shortage. During the twelfth five-year, the investment to highway construction decreases compared with 2010 and 2011.

5. Mining industry: Under the background of increasing resource price and stably growing demand, China’s mining industry shows stable growth trends.
