LEVERAGING ON “MADE IN CHINA 2025”

Since its access to the WTO in late 2001, China has seen a stellar rise of its economy, managing to raise its nominal GDP eight-fold and to become the largest export economy in the world.

Highlights:

  • Since its access to the WTO in 2001, China has seen a stellar rise of its economy. However, “old” comparative advantages have lost vigor, so that China risks to get stuck in the middle-income trap.
  • Against this backdrop, Beijing subscribed to a long-term development strategy, called “Made in China 2025”, which is a ten-year, comprehensive, government-led blueprint to transform the country into an advanced manufacturing leader.
  • While China considers the plan to be its ticket into a high income country, the Western advanced economies have responded largely negatively. The Trump administration has positioned for a long-term strategic battle. In our view this might delay but not derail China’s resolve to move up the value chain.
  • For leveraging on China 2025 we see a long-term investment case of overweighting equities of selected strategically developing sectors within the MSCI China index.
