# Simulation Results

## Results of Comparing Scenario 1 with Baseline

First, the increase of ROI would accelerate private investment growth and increase the share of private investment in the FAI. As shown by Fig. 3.5, affected by the increase of ROI, the private investment growth rates after 2015 in *Scenario 1* would be 5.0 percentage points higher than that in the baseline simulation (hereafter *Baseline)* per quarter on average. In the meantime, they would increase quarter on quarter, quite different from the situation in *Baseline* that they decline steadily. Furthermore, shares of private investment in total FAI would increase significantly,

and the increasing range would expand vibrantly. In the second quarter of 2016, the share in *Scenario 1* would be 2.10 percentage points higher than that in *Baseline *(see Fig. 3.6).

Secondly, the pickup in growth rates of private investment would accelerate the GDP growth. As shown by Fig. 3.7, the GDP growth rates in *Scenario 1* would be

0.94 percentage points higher than those in baseline simulation per quarter on

average. In 2015 and the first half of 2016, the GDP growth rates would maintain approximately between 7.7 and 7.8%, 0.8-1.2% points higher than the present growth rates, almost same as those in 2012 and 2013.

Thirdly, as to the aggregate demand structure, affected by the increase of the FAI growth rate, the share of gross capital formation in GDP would rise, and the share of household consumption and net exports in GDP would decline slightly. As shown by Fig. 3.8, in the second quarter of 2016, the share of gross capital formation in Scenario 1 would be 0.59 percentage points higher than that in *Baseline,* owing to the growth rate of household consumption lower than that of investment. And the share of household consumption would fall by 0.20 percentage points, due to the accelerating GDP growth. The growth rate of household consumption would also be higher than that in *Baseline*. In addition, the share of net exports would go down, owing to the increase of imports growth rate when the domestic demand goes up.
