As agreed by the participating advisors, in the context of the tepid global economic recovery, the supply-side structural reform is not only an essential requirement for China to adapt to the new norms of economic development, but also an important measure to cope with the changing global productivity. CDB should continue to play its unique role in development finance to help China in deepening the supply-side structural reform and promoting stable and healthy economic development.

Hu Huaibang briefed on CDB’s efforts over the past year in supporting construction projects in major areas and facilitating the development of real economy, and the achievements it has made in deepening reform and implementing its “Three-Step” strategy. As he noted, as the global economic recovery is speeding up and China’s economy is developing in a stable and promising manner, CDB will strive to make new contributions to China’s social and economic development and the construction of a moderately prosperous society through its efforts in deepening reforms, facilitating the development of real economy, promoting international cooperation, supporting the implementation of the “One Belt, One Road” initiative, enhancing operation management, and improving risk control and prevention.
