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。

The G7 is dead, long live the G7

The summit in Charlevoix left behind a Group of Seven in complete disarray. The authors think that the G-group, in its current formulation, no longer has a reason to exist, and it should be replaced with a more representative group of countries. In this fast-changing world, is the G7 only a relic of the past?

European and Chinese trade competition in third markets: the case of Latin America

While Europe continues to hold important trade powers, the rise of China in the global economy has significantly reshaped international trade and competition. In this paper, the authors show that the degree of competition between both powers in Latin America has risen in the past decade due to China's increased trade of high-quality products. They address whether China is an increasingly relevant competitor for Europe in Latin America and in which sectors China-EU competition is fiercer. These findings should be a wake-up call to Europe in its quest to remain competitive at the global level.

Trade wars: Just how exposed are EU Member States and industries to the US market?

This blog focuses on how a more restricted access to US final demand could affect EU economies and sectors, by measuring their share of value-added absorbed in the US. The exposure of the EU as a whole in value-added terms is lower compared to that suggested by gross exports to GDP and, overall, gross exports misconstrue the picture of spill-overs through trade linkages. For individual countries, the degree to which gross exports overestimate or underestimate exposure is relatively small, with the important exception of Ireland. However, gross exports significantly overestimate the exposure of EU manufacturing to US final demand.
