better address the global economic problems. The G20, for insta
上海419nce, should strengthen its position as the core platform for global economic go
vernance. Established in the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis, it has become a vital platform promoting global eco上海419品茶微信
nomic governance, and played an important role in the reform of the global economic governance system.
上海419For example, the G20 helped the IMF and the World Bank transform themselves after th
e global financial crisis, so they could deal with the mid-to long-term global economic problems.
But this year the G20 faces more severe challenges. Although the G20 has provided a platfo上海419品茶微信
rm for major countries such as China and the United States to negotiate trade issues, some economies
might not see the group in the same light. The G20 should therefore help the major econo
上海419mies coordinate their trade policies, in order to strengthen global economic governance. The G20 should also
focus on devising rules that would help the major economies avoid conflicts and reach acceptable agreements.
The changing profile of the G20, however, is seen as not only上海419品茶微信
an opportunity but also a challenge for the major economies. While the G20 can help coo
rdinate the trade policies of the world’s 20 largest economies, it should further enhance its authority by working ou
上海419品茶微信t a global economic governance agenda, and suggesting possible ways to resolve burning economic issues.
Thanks to China’s unprecedented economic development and increa
sing contributions to global economic growth and governance, the international co
mmunity expects it to also help improve global economic governance so the world economy can achieve su上海419
stainable, healthy and vibrant growth. And despite rising trade protectionism and unilateralism, China remains c

er capita from 2010 to 2020 and clearly will reach that goal.
上海千花网女神会所Nicholas Lardy, an often-cited Washington-based expert on the Chinese economy, argues i
n his recent book The State Strikes Back: The End of Economic Reform in China that China could have co
上海千花网ntinued to grow at 10 percent per year throughout this decade if not for policy mistakes.
His core argument is that Japan and South Korea continued high growth r
ates until they reached GDP per capita equal to 60 to 70 percent of the US, so why can’t China?上海千花网
With all due respect, I think this is a silly argument. The early growth in both Japan and South Korea was based on for
上海千花网eign demand for exports. In South Korea, these exports were manufactured largely by state-led companies.
China is a much larger economy. There is not enough potential import demand in the worl
d to continue as a main driver of the economy’s growth. It takes longer to grow organically from domestic demand.
上海千花网女神会所Japan saw very fast economic growth from the 1950s to the 1970s based on technological c
atch-up and on fast export growth to the US. The export industries of Japan – mostly cars and electronics –
are extremely competitive. But, much of the domestic economy is protected and inefficient.上海千花网
A series of trade disputes with the US in the 1970s and 1980s culminat
上海千花网女神会所ed in the Plaza Accords in 1985 that limited Japanese exports to the US and forced Jap
an to roughly double the value of the yen. So, export-led growth was no-longer an option.
Instead of opening-up and reforming its domestic economy, Japan first chose to use monetary stimulus in the late 1980s, which上海千花网
resulted in an immense real-estate bubble and led to the real-estate and stock market collapses in 1990 to 1992.
Through the 1990s and 2000s, Japan then tried to use very large infrastructure investm上海千花网女神会所
ents to stimulate the economy. This just resulted in negligible growth, ecological damage and a government-d
ebt-to-GDP ratio of more than 200 percent – by far the highest in the world. In contrast, China’s strategy of str
uctural reform, opening up, and increasing domestic competition will lead to more sustainable GDP growth.
