China’s power use climbs
21st March 2017

 CHINA’S electricity consumption, an important indicator of economic activity, rose significantly in the first two months of this year, suggesting economic improvement, official data showed yesterday.

Power use rose 6.3 percent year on year to 935.6 billion kilowatt-hours in January and February, data with the National Energy Administration showed.
In the first two months, electricity use by primary industry climbed 12 percent from a year earlier. Power consumption by secondary industry gained 6.7 percent, while tertiary industry rose 7.3 percent amid economic restructuring.
Residential power consumption grew 3.5 percent year on year, which compared with 11.8 percent growth a year earlier, largely due to diminishing usage during the warm winter.
The rise in power use in secondary industries, compared with negative growth in the same period of last year, showed continued growth of China’s industrial sector, said experts.

Major cities’ house market stable
20th March 2017

 CHINA’S property market in major cities has stabilized as authorities move to curb price rises.

Of 70 large and medium-sized cities surveyed in February, more than half of them saw month-on-month price declines or rises under 0.5 percent for new housing, according to the National Bureau of Statistics.
Among them, 12 saw a price drop, with new housing prices in two cities flat in February, said the bureau’s senior statistician Liu Jianwei.
Another 19 cities saw home price gains above 0.5 percent last month.
New home prices in first-tier cities such as Beijing and Shanghai rose 0.1 percent on average in February, while second-tier and third-tier cities saw slightly higher price gains of 0.3 percent and 0.4 percent, respectively.
“The growing trend of new housing prices in first-tier cities was restrained after restrictive purchase measures were taken,” said Yan Yuejin, a property market analyst.
“The house prices in second-tier cities need to be further controlled due to big February gains in some cities. Third-tier cities saw a faster price rise due to their loose house purchase policies.”
On a year-on-year basis, February gains of new home prices in 20 cities decelerated from January, added Liu.
“Sales of newly built homes in 15 major cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, slowed in February on the back of targeted local government policies,” Liu said.
Noticeably, in the pre-owned home market, the prices rose 0.4 percent month on month in February, maintaining the growing trend for 23 months.
“The rigorous strictures were mainly targeted for the new housing market, and the price change is not evident in the pre-owned home market,” said Zhang Dawei, analyst with real estate agency Centaline.
Since October, dozens of Chinese cities have announced measures, including purchase limits and mortgage restrictions, to prevent prices from rising out of control.
The latest round of restrictions came after two years of policy easing, starting with relaxation of purchase restrictions in 2014 and fueled by the pro-growth policies, including interest rate cuts.
Many third-tier and fourth-tier cities have excess supply in their real estate markets, while housing prices in some bigger cities with access to better education and medical services are moving swiftly upward.
“We will take more category-based and targeted steps to regulate the real estate market,” read a government work report delivered at the annual parliamentary session earlier this month.
Saturday’s survey came on the heels of new measures in major cities. Beijing is raising the minimum down payment for second-home buyers and those who have no home in Beijing but have housing loan records.
The latest tightening will curb some speculation, and housing prices in some areas of Beijing may fall, Zhang said.
In a similar vein, Guangzhou has also restricted house purchases through minimum down payments for second-home buyers.

China vows to control home prices
17th March 2017

 CHINA added a pledge to contain the country’s fast rising home prices to its annual work report yesterday, as a red-hot property market resists cooling measures and purchase restrictions spread out from the biggest cities.

Several lower-tier cities have raised the bar for home purchases this month as speculators from outside flood smaller markets, with home prices nationwide continuing to rise.
The final version of the government work report said “containing excessive home price rises in hot markets” will be a key focus this year, according to a final version of the report released yesterday by Xinhua news agency.
The first version of the work report, delivered by Premier Li Keqiang on March 5, did not include the phrase.
Home sales surged in the first two months of the year despite government measures, though growth in real estate investment showed signs of easing, according to data released on Tuesday.
Lending to households, mostly mortgages, expanded rapidly last year, accounting for 50 percent of all new loans, and remained high in January.
Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of the People’s Bank of China, said last week that measures to cool rising house prices would slow mortgage growth to some degree, though housing loans would continue to grow at a relatively rapid pace.
Several major banks in Beijing have temporarily stopped issuing housing loans since February, financial magazine Caixin said yesterday, citing bank and property agent sources, though the halt was due to a lack of loan quota, with approval timelines extended but loans still being granted.
China’s state-run banks typically rush to issue loans early in the year to lock in clients before quotas for lending are exhausted.
The banking regulator and the central bank have told banks to curtail new mortgage lending, the Economic Information Daily reported on Monday, citing unnamed banking sources.

Company taxes, fees are to be trimmed
16th March 2017

 China will help enterprises reduce their tax burden and cut fees to help improve their competitiveness, Premier Li Keqiang pledged on Wednesday.

The costs of broadband access, electricity and logistics will be further reduced, with the total cuts in costs and taxes expected to reach 1 trillion yuan ($144.7 billion) this year, Li said at a news conference at the end of this year's two sessions.
Cost reductions for enterprises mean the government needs to "tighten its belt", he said.
"The central government is required to take the lead in reducing government expenses in order to leave room for cutting costs for enterprises," Li said.
He added that China will not reduce imports or retreat from the opening-up process to support domestic enterprises.
Li's comments were in response to complaints of high tax burdens in the private sector.
Ding Mingshan, CEO of China Wallink Holding Group, had anticipated the government lowering taxes of all types on enterprises, given that companies are likely to be more sensitive to costs when encountering economic pressures. Ding also is a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.
Zhang Lianqi, also a member of the advisory body, said that while such complaints by companies make sense, the government also needs to strike a balance between lowering costs for market players and ensuring basic and necessary fiscal spending.
Zhang said policies lowering taxes and fees are expected to be rolled out this year to mesh with the nation's need to support the economy's stabilizing trend.
"Policies in the Government Work Report delivered by Premier Li this month will facilitate the speed of improving the current tax system and let the market players feel the real benefits," said Zhang.
China will consolidate four tax rates into three, according to the report. The government also will cancel 35 administrative fees paid by enterprises, according to the report.
There are about 500 administrative fees that enterprises in China may be subject to, according to a report released by the Research Institute for Fiscal Science last year.
Efforts such as simplifying the tax regime will help improve the efficiency of the tax system and reduce problems encountered while collecting taxes, said Jia Kang, director of the China Academy of New Supply-side Economics.
