The 2017 OECD Economic Survey of China assesses the country’s recent macroeconomic performance and proposes policy measures to promote higher-quality growth. Improving corporate performance by boosting innovation activities and entrepreneurship, enhancing the standards of corporate governance and reforming state-owned enterprises by exposing them more to market mechanisms would raise efficiency and boost household incomes, increase employment opportunities and raise people’s overall well-being. Moving to less energy-intensive production is also key to achieve greener and more sustainable growth. Greater redistribution through the tax-and-transfer system and better targeting of social assistance would enhance inclusiveness. At the same time, inequalities in access to education, healthcare and pensions need to be addressed.

The seminar was chaired by Sandra Poncet and held in English
