For long time, Professor FAN Gang has been studying on the macro-economy. He analyzed the in depth reasons of recent fluctuation of China economy from macro-economy perspectives. Prof. FAN Gang believes that in order to clearly understand the current China economy situation, it is necessary to review the development of China economy in the past 10 years; the problems and challenges that China economy are facing now, only can be fully understood by studying the history. There was a major issue that China economy was over booming twice within 10 years. The first time was during year 2005 - 2007, it was the explosive of energy from the previous 10 years of China economy; however, it was merely not led by the government. Another economy over booming was caused by governmental policies. Currently, China economy is facing the problems of over production capacity, bad debts in the banking sector, domestic debts and etc, and it was caused by the twice of economy over booms.  Over booming could trigger crisis, while the definition of crisis was over productions. Nevertheless, some of the policies that China government engaged, no major economy crisis may outburst due to over productions and other problems. The left-over problems caused by the over booming of economy needs to adjust through “soft landing” in order to dissolve the over productions and over production capacity. “A small bubble leads to minor adjustment, while soft landing is also a type of landing”. Professor FAN Gang believes some companies may need to accept the fact of being withdraw; some may need to accept the fact of being demolished. “In the next few years, China economy will have the growth of 7%-8%, and will be very difficult to get back to double digits, maybe this is the normal region.” Professor FAN Gang basically remains optimistic toward the China economy.

The forum lasted 3 hours, and audiences took note seriously. The phrases of “economy”, “government”, “macro policy control” were all over the note. Students and guests gained a lot. The last session was the Q&A session, which students were very active. The host selected 4 students to have on-site communication with Professor FAN Gang. One of the students asked question on how to better re-structure the state owned and private owned enterprises. Professor Fan answered the question with patient: “To completely solve this issue will take a very long process. Currently there are three things can be done: 1. Private enterprises control the stakes, state owned enterprise tag along; 2. Clear assets ownership; 3. Focusing on local government supports to private sector.” After the session, many interested students surrounded Professor Fan for more assistances.
