Ma said that it is a significant measure to improve and constantly innovate the economic situation analysis. He said that the analysis should make comprehensive use of big data including statistics and questionnaire information. Ma said that through establishing the cooperative mechanism, DRC and the cities will adapt the working methods to local conditions, conduct field research and questionnaire surveys, undertake joint analysis, and focus on major economic problems. These joint efforts will improve the precision of macroeconomic analysis, generate more targeted and feasible policy options, better help the CPC Central Committee and the State Council with their macroeconomic decision-making, and provide support for the cities' efforts to develop the economy.

Wang pointed out that given the currently complex internal and external environment, the traditional methods of analyzing economic situations could not meet the requirements. He said that it is necessary to continuously innovate analysis of the economic situation, and provide more accurate, timely and effective policy options for the CPC Central Committee and the State Council.

Wang hopes DRC will closely cooperate with cities under the cooperative mechanism, jointly build a questionnaire survey database, conduct collaborative research on key issues, promote sharing of data and results, constantly improve cooperative mechanisms, and gradually deepen mutually beneficial cooperation.
