Exploring China's Infrastructure Push — Accelerated Investment Plans Set To Boost Industrial Park And Cold Chain Sectors
Sabrina Wei • 17/03/2022
China’s State Council announced a significant acceleration of infrastructure projects at its executive meeting held on Jan. 10, 2022. The session called on relevant bodies to push forward all major projects in key areas identified within the 14th Five-Year Plan (2021 – 2025) period, signaling a renewed impetus towards infrastructure investment. The meeting also pledged to streamline administrative procedures for ready-to-go projects to further speed up implementation.
The move comes against a backdrop of slower economic growth in China, amid domestic challenges stemming from COVID-19, including demand contractions, supply shocks and weakening sentiment, as well as continuing complexities and uncertainties in the global environment
In response, according to the State Council meeting, the country should now place a higher priority on stabilizing economic growth, maintain the strategy of expanding domestic demand, and take targeted actions to boost consumption and investment.
In this summary report we explore why the government’s pledge of accelerated infrastructure investment in 2022 will spur growth in the industrial park real estate sector, and why rising incomes should promote recovery and expansion in consumer demand, with subsequent knock-on growth effects in the cold chain logistics industry.
