中國投資轉向 服務業領航

傳統印象中,中國投資以工業為主,但仔細分析中國經濟數據可發現,中國投資主體早已轉為服務業,佔整體中國投資的三分之二,而傳統工業(排除政府的公共、交通、水利等投資)僅佔全部投資三分之一。

傳統印象中,中國投資以工業為主,但仔細分析中國經濟數據可發現,中國投資主體早已轉為服務業,佔整體中國投資的三分之二,而傳統工業(排除政府的公共、交通、水利等投資)僅佔全部投資三分之一。這趨勢背後體現的是中國經濟的結構轉型,伴隨經濟規模不斷擴大,中國經濟將實現從工業向服務業的轉型,新增投資也必然追隨這一趨勢轉向服務業。

事實上,服務業投資在過去幾年表現非常堅挺,儘管同樣經歷2013年以來的持續下滑,但是在2015年下半年以後,這一頹勢已經得以扭轉,服務業投資的增長率穩定在10%以上。與此同時,中國的工業投資一路下滑,在2017年的某些月份甚至增速接近0,主導了中國在2015年以後投資的持續下滑。投資在服務業和工業的分化,加上近來服務業PMI指數明顯優於工業,也正在體現經濟轉型的過程。

三大產業投資突出

服務業中有三大產業的投資尤為突出,分別為水利環境、交通運輸及房地產行業,共佔中國整體投資超過80%。前兩項於過去幾年快速增長,增速介乎20%至30%之間,成為引領中國固定資產投資增長的兩個重要領域。我們認為,這兩項投資在2018年仍然會顯著提升。

首先,中國的水利及環境問題依舊突出,水資源不足及水旱災害頻繁的問題仍沒解決,而污染問題更逐漸成為社會最為詬病的症狀之一,加上公共設施投資依靠政府主導,因此受市場波動的影響較小。中國官方預計,傳統環保業務(水、氣、固廢)的投資於「十三五」期間將保持在25%左右的增速 ,水利投資也有可能達到增速超過20%。

物流活動強勢增長

另外,中國的物流業發展亦充滿機遇。其中物流業景氣指數在多數時間段都超過50%。從後期走勢來看,2017年12月最新的物流新訂單指數為53.5%,業務活動預期指數為55.8%,預示未來的物流活動將會保持穩健增長。

唯一令人擔憂的是房地產投資,政府限購政策令社會的房地產熱情開始消減,一線城市的房價甚至出現負增長,再加上政府對房企發債的限制,房地產投資堪憂。隨着房地產待售面積的不斷下降,儘管房企在未來一兩年內開始補充存貨,但如果政府調控政策依舊保持偏緊的態度,尤其是金融上仍然對房地產企業加以限制,房地產投資在2018年有機會保持平穩。事實上,資金環境日趨緊張,在岸發債早被叫停,政府顯然開始減少對房地產企業的金融支援。考慮到房地產企業投資對整體經濟的拉動作用,其效應將會大於前述兩項投資。

綜上推斷,服務業投資將在今年出現一定的分化,房地產投資預計依舊偏低,但是其他類型的服務業投資將會保持穩健,因此服務業整體投資在2018年依舊應保持較為平穩的增長。

Why the US Trade Agreement will slow China’s economy

The response of the global financial markets to the trade agreement reached between the United States and China has been very positive, probably excessively so given the relatively limited size of the agreement reached.

From Brussels with love? Russia's economic dependence on the EU

Despite the political antagonism, the EU and Russia are not only geographically, but also economically, reliant on each other: European houses are heated using Russian natural gas and Russia is highly dependent on European investment. Therefore, should the EU develop closer political ties with Russia? How much leverage does the EU have when dealing with the Kremlin? This week, Nicholas Barrett is joined by Niclas Poitiers and Marta Domínguez-Jímenez to discuss European foreign direct investment in Russia.

Epidemic tests China’s supply chain dominance

Much has been written on the Wuhan coronavirus that causes the respiratory disease Covid-19, but very little is known yet about its impact on the global economy and, in particular, the global value chain. Still, one thing is clear: The shock is bigger than that caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), for the simple reason that China is much more important for the global economy than it was then.

FDI another day: Russian reliance on European investment

Most foreign direct investment into Russia originates in the European Union: European investors own between 55 percent and 75 percent of Russian FDI stock. This points to a Russian dependence on European investment, making the EU paramount for Russian medium-term growth. Even if we consider ‘phantom’ FDI that transits through Europe, the EU remains the primary investor in Russia. Most phantom FDI into Russia is believed to originate from Russia itself and thus is by construction not foreign.

Explaining the triumph of Trump’s economic recklessness

The Trump administration’s economic policy is a strange cocktail: one part populist trade protectionism and industrial interventionism; one part classic Republican tax cuts skewed to the rich and industry-friendly deregulation; and one part Keynesian fiscal and monetary stimulus. But it's the Keynesian part that delivers the kick.

Incorporating political risks into debt sustainability analysis

DSA applies to crisis countries only, but an early warning system identifying vulnerabilities is relevant for all countries. A more general, less stringent, debt vulnerabilities analysis (DVA) could be used to assess countries’ debt management policies and identify vulnerabilities, without leading immediately to policy consequences. A more general framework could also incorporate political risks that are significant determinants of debt dynamics
