China’s Economic Growth Steady Amid Tariff Fight With US


Reported to us by: Voice of America -East Asia - Wed, 04/17/2019 - 07:05 - [CET]
China’s economic growth held steady in the latest quarter despite a tariff war with Washington, in a reassuring sign that Beijing’s efforts to reverse a slowdown might be gaining traction. The world’s second-largest economy expanded by 6.4% over a year earlier in the three months ending in March, the government reported Wednesday. That matched the previous quarter for the weakest growth since 2009. “This confirms that China’s economic growth is bottoming out and this momentum is likely to continue,” said Tai Hui of JP Morgan Asset Management in a report. Government intervention Communist leaders stepped up government spending last year and told banks to lend more after economic activity weakened, raising the risk of politically dangerous job losses. Beijing’s decision to ease credit controls aimed at reining in rising debt “is starting to yield results,” Hui said. Consumer spending, factory activity and investment all accelerated in March from the month before, the National Bureau of Statistics reported. The economy showed “growing positive factors,” a bureau statement said. ​Recovery later this year Forecasters expect Chinese growth to bottom out and start to recover later this year. They expected a recovery last year but pushed back that time line after President Donald Trump hiked tariffs on Chinese imports over complaints about Beijing’s technology ambitions. The fight between the two biggest global economies has disrupted trade in goods from soybeans medical equipment, battering exporters on both sides and rattling financial markets. The two governments say settlement talks are making progress, but penalties on billions of dollars of each other’s goods are still in place. China’s top economic official, Premier Li Keqiang, announced an annual official growth target of 6% to 6.5% in March, down from last year’s 6.6% rate. Li warned of “rising difficulties” in the global economy and said the ruling Communist Party plans to step up deficit spending this year to shore up growth. Beijing’s stimulus measures have temporarily set back official plans to reduce reliance on debt and investment to support growth. Also in March, exports rebounded from a contraction the previous month, rising 14.2% over a year earlier. Still, exports are up only 1.4% so far this year, while imports shrank 4.8% in a sign of weak Chinese domestic demand. Auto sales fell 6.9% in March from a year ago, declining for a ninth month. But that was an improvement over the 17.5% contraction in January and February. Tariffs' effect long-lasting Economists warn that even if Washington and Beijing announce a trade settlement in the next few weeks or months, it is unlikely to resolve all the irritants that have bedeviled relations for decades. The two governments agreed Dec. 1 to postpone further penalties while they negotiate, but punitive charges already imposed on billions of dollars of goods stayed in place. Even if they make peace, the experience of other countries suggests it can take four to five years for punitive duties to “dissipate fully,” said Jamie Thompson of Capital Economics in a report last week. Chinese leaders warned previously any economic recovery will be “L-shaped,” meaning once the downturn bottomed out, growth would stay low. Credit growth accelerated in March, suggesting companies are stepping up investment and production. Total profit for China’s national-level state-owned banks, oil producers, phone carriers and other companies rose 13.1% over a year ago in the first quarter, the government reported Tuesday. Revenue rose 6.3% and investment rose 9.7%.

Re-politicising policing in China


Reported to us by: East Asia Forum - Wed, 04/17/2019 - 02:00 - [CET]

Author: Suzanne Scoggins, Clark University

In late February, reports surfaced that police officers in Beijing have been appointed to top positions in grassroots Communist Party cells around the city. This move raises questions about China’s efforts to tighten control of residents and insert security personnel into the daily lives of ordinary people. It also provides insight into the reach of the state’s stability maintenance efforts and the increasingly politicised role of the police.

 Reuters/Jason Lee).

According to the Beijing Daily, the appointments began as a limited pilot in 2012 and authorities plan to expand the practice across the city by July 2019. There are reports of similar placements in Shanghai.

Incorporating the police into Party committees is certainly not new. The Chinese Communist Party explicitly authorised the practice in 2003 at the provincial, municipal and county levels. The changes have sometimes produced notable results — evidence from budget reports suggests that the practice has given public security chiefs at the provincial level greater power over financial allocations.

What does embedding police in grassroots Party cells actually mean for state control and policing on the ground? Police in Beijing’s Tongzhou district say the changes have made it easier to correct misunderstandings and resistance from residents who do not understand what falls under the purview of the police.

As the Ministry of Public Security requires that local police respond to all calls made to the emergency hotline regardless of content, a more informed public might mean fewer calls to police stations about missing dogs, lost cows, or even forgotten social media passwords. This could free up police time to attend to more important matters as well as alleviate tensions between residents and police by lowering the public’s expectations.

More generally, the practice also gives the state a much stronger foothold in the community. During the communist era, these ties were strong and fundamental to the success of crime control across the country. At the time, policing was grounded in the individual stations (paichusuo) and depended heavily on work units, neighbourhood committees and the household registration (hukou) system that restricted and monitored population movement.

With the reform era came big changes to local policing as cities grew and an increasingly mobile population became harder to control. Crime rates spiked as the old networks of social control lost their efficacy, putting significant strains on grassroots stations and officers.

The efforts to incorporate police officers into the local Party are thus best seen as a continuation of past efforts to embed the police in society. In many ways, it follows the same logic of the grid management system that divides cities into management zones and strategically places officers and small police kiosks to help local stations maximise the country’s small per capita police force.

Ultimately, the collective goal of these efforts is better social control through stability maintenance — a core priority under President Xi Jinping’s rule. While the state’s use of artificial intelligence and surveillance cameras have received the lion’s share of attention from the international press, the police appointments to Party cells are a reminder that Xi’s China is pursuing a much larger and comprehensive strategy to collect information and manage early threats.

But the appointments are also indicative of the growing political role of police in China. Just as officers in the early communist era were charged with rooting out counter-revolutionaries and waging political crime campaigns as agents of the ‘mass-line’, police in reform-era China have become increasingly politicised as the state pushes policies that promote stability maintenance. Since these duties must co-exist with everyday crime-fighting activities that are expected of police everywhere, they can impose a strain on frontline officers that are already struggling with heavy workloads.

Although police in democratic countries also engage in political tasks, particularly in the post-911 world, authoritarian states such as China are far more likely to incorporate political elements into core functions of policing. What makes the Chinese case interesting is that we observed a retreat from this role in the 1980s and early 1990s as the nation focused on economic growth and managing the social contradictions of the period.

Politicisation has been revived now that stability maintenance has assumed prominence. With more evidence like the embedding of officers in local Party cells cropping up every day, we should expect to see a continuation of this trend.
