Neosupply economics began to advocate supply-side reform in 2012, and the following year, it started to exert a positive impact on relevant economic policies and reform thought. In 2015, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the State Council officially initiated supply-side structural reform. In December 2018, the Central Economic Working Conference made it clear that the principal contradiction in China's current economic development is the structural mismatch resulting from the supply side failing to evolve in step with demand. As a result, China will continue to make supply-side structural reform the main task of its economic policy and push forward various economic reforms.
What is supply-side reform? Why does the Chinese Government put so much emphasis on it? What does it consist of ?
First, China's economic growth has slowed down since 2012, after over three decades of rapid growth. In the face of this situation, China's decision makers didn't take the old path of stimulating the economy through monetary and fiscal policies. Instead, they paid attention to issues such as the supply conditions of production factors, the market's supply pattern and the supply structure of products and services, hoping to realize quality economic growth through reforms of these longstanding and deep-seated problems.
Second, in essence, supply-side reform is not simply one or two reform measures, but a set of economic principles and reform concepts based on China's specific economic development stage. All industries and regions should come up with their own reform measures based on these principles and ideas. However, if they don't fully grasp the theories and instead implement them perfunctorily, supply-side reform
will turn into dogmatism and hurt China's economy.
It is because of its special features that supply-side reform is misunderstood both inside and outside of China to some degree.Thus, it needs to be explained in a comprehensive way. Nationally, due to a lack of understanding of the supply-side reform theory, some provinces used direct administrative intervention to meet preset targets instead of letting the market decide when to reduce excess capacity.
