This paper analyzes the necessity,favorable conditions, long-term challenges, and short-term situation of maintaining stablegrowth, as well as the critical significance of growth stability to the achievement of Chinesemodernization and the balancing of development and security. China’s relatively higheconomic growth rate, updating production factors, and world-class new economy createfavorable conditions for economic stability. However, there remain some domestic andinternational risks and obstacles. China’s economic development is on the path of recoveryand lacks inherent dynamism in the short term.
