Morgan Stanley: China's Economy and Market PromisingPhilips.J.Purcell, chairman and CEO of Morgan Stanley Dean Witter Group, said during an interview Tuesday in Beijing that despite a slackening world economic growth China will be the one witnessing the speediest economic growth across the world. With its sound fiscal and currency policies it poses a strong appeal to foreign investors.
He noted that the slackening world economy, as a result of the "9.11" terrorist attacks on the US, will inevitably impact China's exports. However, it will exert not much influence on the macroeconomic situation of the country. China's robust economic growth has a very strong appeal to numerous foreign investors. The growth of investment will offset the negative influence on its exports. Philips thought that China's policy in enlarging domestic demand is very successful and its promotive function on economic growth will be further felt. He said that China's coming entry into WTO will speed up the advance of its economy and enterprises to face the outside world. Morgan Stanley will add more resources investment in the Chinese market, vigorously participate in the process of China's marketalization, strengthen the cooperation with Chinese enterprises and make efforts to help set up a modern enterprise system, promoting enterprise efficiency and enhancing the competitiveness of its enterprises in the international market.
