According to the National Bureau of Statistics, the cumulative annual growth rate of China’s fixed asset investment was 5.2% in October 2019, maintaining moderate growth. However, the current downward pressure on the economy is increasing, government is expected to continue introducing relevant policies to increase the infrastructure investment to drag the bottom of the economy. In addition, the monetary policy remains stable and loose, which will benefit the development of the infrastructure sector. We expect that the new contract value of the company will continue to grow steadily.
