What role does it play in China’s economy? What is at its core? What is its focus? How does it integrate with other current important financial reforms and innovations?

"Given the restoration of the supply side reform, what is needed is a rational restoration. Once again, we should review the relationship between the government and the market, so that they can achieve balance again in the new situation." —Zheng Yongnian (director, Institute of East Asian Studies, National University of Singapore)  

"The optimization and upgrading of the industrial structure is manifested as creative destruction. In the process of creative destruction, "destruction" is inevitable and does not change according to people's will, while "creation" requires corresponding institutional conditions and a conducive policy environment." —Cai Fang (director, Institute of Population and Labor Economy, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences)
