In response to the “Opinions on Further Stimulating Investment Vitality in the Social Sector” (referred to as the “Opinions”) issued by the State Council yesterday, some industry experts interviewed by China Economic Net stated that the “Opinions” focus on increasing medical care, elderly care, education, culture, and sports. The supply of products and services in other socials, focusing on improving the people’s sense of gain, is of great significance for promoting stable growth of investment, cultivating new drivers of economic development, and achieving coordinated economic and social development.
In recent years, the state has issued a number of policy documents to promote the development of the service industry and expand consumption, such as pensions, health, cultural creativity, sports, and tourism. The enthusiasm of private investment continues to increase, service capabilities in related fields continue to improve, and emerging business formats continue to emerge. .
Gan Lianfang, member of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and chairman of Beijing Xingpai (www.xingpaibilliard.com) Group, has a deep understanding of this. He gave an example, Xingpai Group cooperated with Yushan County, Jiangxi Province to successfully host the Chinese Billiard World Championships for three consecutive years. It not only promoted the development of the national fitness industry, enhanced the corporate brand strength, but also effectively promoted the development of the local economy and realized the society.

According to data from the National Bureau of Statistics, in 2016, the growth rates of my country’s education, health and social work, culture and sports, and entertainment industries reached 13.7%, 19.9%, and 4.1% respectively, which were all higher than the entire society’s private investment in the same period. % Growth rate. However, the total amount of the above three types of private investment is only 897.6 billion yuan, accounting for only 38.3% of the fixed asset investment in the entire social field, which is 23 percentage points lower than the national private investment accounting for 61.2% of the total investment, which fully reflects the private investment in the social field.

Because of this, investment in the social field is an important direction for expanding effective investment and further improving people’s livelihood, and new growth points are contained in solving outstanding problems that the people are generally concerned about.
Yang Yiyong, director of the Institute of Social Development of the Chinese Academy of Macroeconomics, believes that the Opinions have adapted to the changes in the domestic economic development situation, adhered to the development direction of meeting multi-level and diversified people’s livelihood needs and cultivating new economic momentum, and highlighted the challenges faced by the social field. Starting with problems is conducive to creating a new situation in which social undertakings and industries promote each other, and effectively improve the people’s sense of gain and happiness.
Multiple measures to reduce costs and expand supply are the core of the “Opinions”. Experts said that because the social field is related to the vital interests of the people and has natural public welfare attributes, this determines that three basic principles must be adhered to in stimulating theof social investment, namely, the unification of social and economic benefits, the classification of profit and non-profit management, and The reform direction of “decentralization, control and service”.
The Opinions put forward that it is necessary to adhere to the general tone of the work of seeking progress while maintaining stability, focusing on supply-side structural reforms, highlighting problem orientation, focusing on reducing institutional transaction costs, expanding effective supply, and satisfying multi-level and diversified needs. 37 specific measures have been introduced in terms of easing industry access firmly and effectively, further expanding investment and financing channels, implementing land tax and fee policies, vigorously promoting integration and innovation, and strengthening supervision and optimization services.
“From a market perspective, the “Opinions” will form substantial benefits for the development of enterprises.” Gan Lianfang said that with the relaxation of industry access and the expansion of investment and financing channels, more and more capital will enter the pension, sports , Tourism and other social fields. He revealed to reporters that Xingpai Group, which has been in sporting goods for 30 years, will expand into the big health and big tourism industry, relying on the strategic opportunity of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei integration, to explore a new path of integrated development in the field of health care and cultural tourism.
The relevant person in charge of the National Development and Reform Commission stated that the next step will be to comprehensively promote the three-pronged approach of decentralization, regulation and service, by optimizing the service process, shortening the time limit for approval, improving the efficiency of approval, and working to improve the coordinated supervision mechanism, and strive to create a fair and competitive market. surroundings.
