    China VC/PE Investment Strategy Report 2020
    2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of PRC, and it is also the critical year to build a well-off society in an all-round way. The external environment and internal conditions are becoming more complex, and the difficulties and challenges are obviously increasing. The global economy has experienced the "synchronous recovery" in 2018 to "synchronous deceleration". The monetary policies of major economies have changed from "raising interest rates", "shrinking the balance sheet" to "reducing interest rates" and "expanding the balance sheet" (QE). China-US trade disputes, Brexit and geopolitical issues have brought greater risks and challenges to the global economy. Domestically, the Chinese government has stepped up counter-cyclical adjustment and actively implemented the "six stability" policy. In 2019, China's GDP increased by 6.1% YoY, and the growth rate slowed down by 0.5 percentage points compared with the whole year of 2018. The national economy remained in a reasonable range, but the economic growth rate decreased quarter by quarter, showing the mounting downward pressure.

    SSE STAR Market IPO Report 2020
    The "registration-based system" was first proposed in 2013 but has not been implemented over the past six years. In November 2013, the third plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee reviewed and issued the Decision of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on Some Major Issues Concerning Comprehensively Deepening the Reform, pointing out that it is necessary to "improve the multi-layer capital market system and promote reform toward a registration-based stock-issuing system”, which is also the first time that the Chinese government explicitly proposed to promote the reform toward a registration-based stock-issuing system. Since then, China has entered the period of exploring the registration-based system but does not make smooth progress. In the first instance of the draft amendment to the Securities Law in 2015, it was mentioned that the registration-based system implemented by the Issuance Appraisal Committee should be canceled; in the second draft of the Securities Law in 2017, the registration-based system was also not mentioned; In February 2018, the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress decided to extend the authorization of registration-based system reform for two years. Due to such reasons as the mismatch between the delisting system of listed companies and the registration-based system and the incompleteness of investor protection mechanism, the registration-based system in China's capital market sees its implementation slowed down again and again.
