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. In 2012, because the global economy slows, the resource price is expected to fall slightly, while the investment to mining industry in China is expected to grow stably.

6. Water conservancy construction: Since 2011, the central and local governments have successively launched a series of files for the water conservancy construction.
