>China improves pricing mechanism for coal-fired power
深化燃煤发电上网电价市场化改革

China's top economic planner on Tuesday announced an improved pricing mechanism for coal-fired power to deepen market-oriented pricing reform in the sector.
10月12日,国家发展改革委印发《关于进一步深化燃煤发电上网电价市场化改革的通知》。

The floating range of the market-based electricity transaction prices are adjusted in principle to a range of 20% fluctuation in either direction, compared with the current ceiling of 10% and floor of 15% from the benchmark price, said the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC). The market transaction prices of coal-fired electricity for high energy-consuming enterprises are not restricted by the ceiling of 20% upward fluctuation.
《通知》明确,将燃煤发电市场交易价格浮动范围由现行的上浮不超过10%、下浮原则上不超过15%,扩大为上下浮动原则上均不超过20%,高耗能企业市场交易电价不受上浮20%限制。

All local governments should give priority to the supply of low-cost power for residents and agriculture, said the NDRC.
地方政府应保持居民、农业用电价格稳定。

This will help give full play to the role of the market so that electricity prices can better reflect the supply and demand relationship, as well as the cost changes, said NDRC official Peng Shaozong. The new rules will also encourage high energy-consuming enterprises to increase investment in technological transformation, improve energy utilization efficiency, and promote the transformation and upgrading of the industrial structure, he said.
国家发展改革委官员彭绍宗说,这有利于更好发挥市场机制作用,让电价更灵活反映电力供需形势和成本变化,同时还将促进高耗能企业加大技术改造投入、提高能源利用效率,推动产业结构转型升级。

>IMF revises down 2021 global economy forecast
IMF下调今年全球增长预期

The International Monetary Fund has projected the world economy will grow by 5.9% this year, while China's growth will moderate to 8%, both 0.1 of a percentage point lower than the IMF's July estimates.
国际货币基金组织(IMF)10月12日发布最新一期《世界经济展望报告》,预计2021年全球经济增长率为5.9%,较7月份预测值下调0.1个百分点。同时,IMF预计中国经济今年将增长8%,也较7月份预测值下调0.1个百分点。

"The downward revision for 2021 reflects a downgrade for advanced economies - in part due to supply disruptions - and for low-income developing countries, largely due to worsening pandemic dynamics," the IMF said in its latest World Economic Outlook released on Tuesday.
报告指出,下调今年全球经济增长预期,主要反映了发达经济体在供应链中断影响下增长放缓,以及低收入发展中经济体因疫情形势恶化导致经济增幅收窄。

Fueled by the highly transmissible Delta variant, the recorded global COVID-19 death toll has risen close to 5 million, and health risks abound, holding back a full return to normalcy, IMF Economic Counsellor Gita Gopinath said.
IMF首席经济学家吉塔·戈皮纳特表示,德尔塔毒株肆虐,新冠病例死亡总人数逼近500万,健康风险无处不在,成为横在全面复苏道路上的障碍。

"Pandemic outbreaks in critical links of global supply chains have resulted in longer than expected supply disruptions, feeding inflation in many countries," she continued.
与此同时,疫情多点暴发,殃及处于全球供应链关键环节的国家和地区,致使供应链紊乱长于此前预期,进一步抬高部分国家的通胀。
