The National Development and Reform Commission recently released the "Measures for Restoring and Expanding Consumption" (hereinafter referred to as the "Measures"), which proposes multiple targeted measures from multiple aspects such as stabilizing bulk consumption, expanding service consumption, promoting rural consumption, expanding emerging consumption, improving consumption facilities, and optimizing the consumption environment, to further explore the advantages of the ultra large scale market.
As a major consumer province in China, Guangdong's total retail sales of consumer goods remained the top in the country in the first half of this year. The relevant person in charge of the Guangdong Provincial Department of Commerce told the media that in the second half of the year, the focus will be on bulk consumption, cultural and tourism consumption, sales leaders, and county-level consumption. At present, Guangdong is promoting the relaxation of the "license plate restrictions" in Guangzhou and Shenzhen; Support auto major cities such as Guangzhou and Shenzhen to implement car purchase subsidies, trade in the old for the new, and expand the sales of Alternative fuel vehicle.
At the same time, we will host 100 "Guangdong Exciting Consumption" series of consumer promotion activities, innovate new consumption scenarios, expand traffic consumption and internet celebrity consumption; Renovation of a number of county commercial service centers and township commercial outlets, layout and construction of a number of county-level pedestrian street commercial districts.
The Measures have proposed multiple highlight measures to fully stabilize bulk consumption. Among them, automobile consumption is a major focus. Not long ago, the National Development and Reform Commission and other departments have issued the "Several Measures to Promote Automobile Consumption", and now they have once again strengthened their support for automobile consumption.
This is because the automotive industry chain is relatively long and has a significant multiplier effect on driving the economy. "Bai Ming, a member of the Academic Degrees Committee of the Research Institute of the Ministry of Commerce, believes that the proposed measures have strong operability, and some of them also involve second-hand car transactions, further promoting the upgrading of automotive consumption.
According to data from the China Automobile Association, in the first half of this year, China's passenger car production and sales completed 11.281 million and 11.268 million units, respectively, with year-on-year growth of 8.1% and 8.8%. The Measures propose to relax and optimize the purchase restrictions on automobiles, which will continue to "open source" automobile consumption, lower the threshold for automobile consumption, and increase the increment of automobile consumption access.
Zhao Zhiguo, spokesman of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said earlier that the current industrial economy is still facing difficulties such as insufficient demand and declining efficiency. To stabilize industry, we should pay more attention to expanding Effective demand, focusing on key industries and enhancing endogenous power. As one of the "Four Great Kings" of social consumer goods, expanding automobile consumption, especially after optimizing the automobile purchase restriction policies in some popular cities, is expected to further relax the purchase restriction conditions, allowing more consumers to have the opportunity to purchase cars and further stimulate domestic demand.
In addition, continuously reducing the cost of purchasing new energy vehicles will further unleash consumption potential. The Measures will continue to reduce the cost of purchasing and using new energy vehicles, continue or optimize policies such as tax exemptions for new energy vehicle purchases, and further enhance consumers' willingness to purchase environmentally friendly new energy vehicles. Improving the charging infrastructure of new energy vehicles will also increase the availability of new energy vehicles in urban and rural areas, increase consumers' interest and willingness to purchase new energy vehicles Chen Feng, an associate researcher at the Modern Industry Research Institute of the Guangzhou Academy of Social Sciences, believes that.
As the largest consumer province in China, since the beginning of this year, multiple departments such as the Department of Commerce of Guangdong Province have focused on mass consumption and jointly issued multiple consumption promotion policies, including the "Implementation Plan for Further Revitalizing Automobile Circulation and Expanding Automobile Consumption in Guangdong Province" and the "Implementation Plan for Green Intelligent Home Appliance Consumption in Guangdong Province".
In terms of automobile consumption, Guangdong has proposed that the exemption period for new energy vehicle purchase tax will be further extended. Enterprises outside the second-hand car trading market can also sell second-hand cars in the future, and second-hand cars purchased and used for sales by Guangzhou and Shenzhen automobile sales enterprises will no longer occupy the license plate indicator.
At the same time, cities with conditions can introduce support policies for new energy vehicles going to rural areas, encourage automobile enterprises to develop new energy vehicle models that meet rural scenarios and farmers' needs, and organize and carry out "benefiting the people" activities for new energy vehicles going to rural areas.
