新冠肺炎疫情背景下,中国的经济形势是国际社会普遍关心的问题。华南美国商会会长 哈利赛亚丁在接受深圳卫视&直新闻客户端记者采访时表示,他们商会最近对新冠疫情带来的困难及企业采取的相应措施进行调查,调查结果显示,虽然大部分受访企业认为新冠肺炎疫情对年收入会带来负面影响,但是75%的受访企业仍然对中国经济前景充满信心,并表示不会改变其再投资计划。

哈利赛亚丁说,在调查和对话的过程中,他们注意到中国多个地方地政府机构在疫情期间,都在积极地为外商企业解决问题,特别是在重启运营方面。这就是为什么大部分的在华外企,都没有考虑撤出中国,或者遣返外国员工。

他特别提到广东政府会非常迅速地解决问题,帮助企业打开局面。哈利赛亚丁说中国政府采取行动的效率很高,他认识的所有人都认真地与政府合作,这是因为双方之间建立了信任。这就是为什么在被问及应当如何应对疫情时,只有少量公司选择“关闭边境以减少病毒的影响或病毒的传播”这一选项。

哈利赛亚丁说商会每年都会对贸易进行研究,找到企业最可能面临的问题。在新冠肺炎爆发的背景下,他们想通过调查研究,发现企业面临的最大的困难。因此在调查前与一些企业进行了沟通,在调查问题的设计上,尽可能覆盖到疫情影响的方方面面。

调查研究的工作小组在2月10日至16日期间,通过电话采访的方式,与399家企业取得了联系。参与研究的公司大多数是跨国公司,超过一半来自美国,此外还包括欧洲和其他亚太经合组织国家。接受调查的企业涵盖各个行业,其中最具代表性的是服务业和制造业。

调查结果显示,虽然76%的受访企业认为年收入会受到负面影响,但无论疫情的影响如何,75%的受访企业对中国经济前景充满信心,并且不会改变其再投资计划。

哈利赛亚丁在采访中表示,面对疫情企业改变用工的方式,比如调整假期或者让员工在家办公。他说,参与调查的公司在华南地区都做得很好,在扩大投资和运营的计划上,只有大约2%的企业已经进行了修改,将推迟投资。75%的企业没有改变投资计划,25%的企业会保持开放的心态,看看未来是否需要改变计划。哈利赛亚丁说,这些都是我们需要了解的最直观的信息。

这份报告也最直观地显示出,外国企业地信心从何而来。在应对疫情方面,受访企业把信息公开透明看得最重要,绝大部分企业认为,提供关于疫情的第一手资料,可以最有效地帮助他们了解潜在的经济影响。98.6%的受访人士赞成,中国政府需要提供准确和最新的信息,他们希望中国政府通过值得信赖的专家,就疫情进展和进行形势进行研究并发布研究报告。

截止目前,这些受访外企给中国政府机构的表现打了高分。97%的受访企业认为,自己的企业对疫情产生的潜在经济影响有着充分的了解,并且采取了很好的应对措施。这些外企的总公司,也随时准备提供所需的任何帮助。同时有93%的受访者相信,中国政府机构可以为他们提供帮助,应对疫情带来的潜在经济影响。

哈利赛亚丁还建议,考虑到全球许多公司都关闭了很长一段时间,因此希望中国政府能在税费方面解决这些企业的燃眉之急。

商务部原副部长魏建国在接受深圳卫视&直新闻客户端记者采访时表示,外企的信心主要来源于中国政府对于疫情的应对以及外企对中国市场的信心。魏建国还特别指出,去年通过的外商投资法,也给在华外企带来了新的期待。

而至于税收方面,魏建国表示,中国政府应该充分考虑疫情给企业带来的资金财务困难,进行精准扶助,充分考虑外商企业的需求。魏建国同时指出,从华南美国商会的这份调查报告来看,在华外企给中国政府的疫情应对点了赞。他说,从报告中可以看出,外商还是看好中国,不仅没有撤离中国,没有出现外商撤离潮,更重要的是外商会进一步加大对中国的投资,2020年把目光瞄准中国。前期受到一些影响,全年仍然有新的发展。

以下是哈利赛亚丁接受采访的中英文全文:

1. 如果浏览过我们的网站,你就会发现我们每年都会做很多研究。我们试图找出成员所面临的困难、关切或挑战,并尝试与其他官方组织或单位进行协调,帮助成员缓解或解决问题。早些时候,我确信我们对贸易问题进行了深入的研究。事实上我们每年都对贸易问题进行非常全面的研究。询问我们的企业,“你在华南的业务情况如何?”因此对于我们来说,今年的这份研究报告是一个特殊的调查,让我们能够了解各个公司处理新冠肺炎病毒爆发的方方面面,以及他们的困难可能是什么。

2. 在设置调查问题之前,我们与一些公司进行了交谈,了解它们目前面对的主要问题可能是什么。然后根据2025年左右的预测,给不同的公司打电话。我们设计问题的原则是,确保这些问题的覆盖面是影响多个公司的,不只是一家公司。

3. 我们的问卷主要关注每个公司在做什么,以保证员工的安全。但在现时特殊情况下,如果继续经营,可能会面临一些困难。我们尝试与其它公司互通信息,互相帮助。其中,我们关注的很重要的一点是,目前公司的员工不必到岗工作的情况。多数企业都非常关注员工在家工作的问题。例如,我们商会,继续让员工在家工作的同时,履行职责,主动接触成员,努力了解他们需要什么。我们的企业一直在做的另一件事是,集中精力确保职员提高防疫的意识。另外,我们还重点关注了公司对投资计划的担忧。我们知道,参与调查的公司在华南地区都做得很好,在扩大投资和运营的计划上。我们惊讶地发现,只有大约2%的企业进行了修改,将推迟投资。75%的企业没有改变投资计划,25%的企业会保持开放的心态,看看未来是否需要改变计划。这些都是我们需要了解的非常重要的信息。根据调查结果,我们进行沟通,因为很多时候成员的判断标准是竞争对手在做什么,其它行业在做什么,他们的客户在做什么。我们做这份调查问卷的最终目的是起到一个教育作用。

4. 目前必须承认的一件事是,全球许多公司都关闭了很长一段时间,与此同时,还需要向员工支付工资、福利等。值得注意的是,当我们的成员支付他们的员工时,他们也缴纳了与工资和福利相关的税,而员工其实是没有贡献的。我们希望中国政府考虑其中一项,减少雇主须缴交的税款。当然,这是一个公平的要求。

5. 根据调查和对话,我看到,包括广东省商务厅在内的许多地方政府与我们商会携手合作,解决公司的问题,特别是在重启运营方面。广州粮农组织与我们密切合作,确保我们公司能够及时了解到信息,这样公司就知道政府的最新规定是什么。政府,尤其是广东政府,都非常迅速地解决问题,帮助企业打开局面。中国政府采取行动的效率很高。我们非常高兴地看到,我们认识的所有人都认真地与政府合作,那是因为我们之间建立了信任。这就是为什么只有少量公司做出了“关闭边境以减少病毒的影响或病毒的传播”的选择。人们相信中国政府正在做正确的事情。不过,在财政方面,我们仍然希望政府至少在雇员薪金方面提供一些减税,让我们弥补一些损失。

6. 我由衷祝贺所有参与其中的所有人,包括政府和公司,在这个非常艰难的时刻,他们携手努力,解决问题。我对现在发生的一切都很满意。我也很高兴政府帮助我们把工人带回来,以便在很短的时间内使我们的工厂达到最大产能。所以我们很高兴,我们充满感激。

1. If you look at our website,you will see that we do quite a few study in the course of every year. And of course a major issue will arrive. So we try to find out what are the difficulties or concerns or challenges are facing our members,and try to find the work with coordinate with other authorities and other sources in order to help alleviate some of the problem or address the concern. Earlier I that sure we get the to studies that alone to in depth studies on the trade issues that we every year we do a very comprehensive study on the your business situation in south China, so this is just another exercise for us to understand the whole companies are dealing with the coronavirus outbreak and what access rate they're having what their difficulties might be.

2. Before we put the questions together,we talk to a number of companies to try to see what the main issues might be. And then based on the feedback from 2025 or so were phone calls to different companies. We develop the question is to make,because before we address an area,we need to make sure that it's an area that affects many people,not just one single company.

3. A primary focus was to see what each company is doing, in order to keep the employees safe, but continue to operate in the time that things were very difficult. And then try to share that information with other companies to make sure that those who have successfully done something can help the other people learn what to do. One of the things in the area,so we looked at was what are companies doing in getting the employees to work without having to. When the holiday was extended,there was not the ability to go to the office. Most of our members really focused on the issue that I was having an employee work from home. Our chamber,for example,we continue to have our employees work from home. And at the same time,perform their duties,reach out to the members and try to understand what they need. The other thing that our members have been doing is basically focus to make sure that there is increase awareness and increase availability of sanitation items within the workplace. We also focused on the companies concern about the reinvestment plans. We know that prior to the study of companies have always been growing have done very well in the south China. They have a very solid reinvest plan in order to grow and expand existing operations. We wondered how those plans for investors have been impacted. We were actually surprised to find that just about 2% have already were made alterations,will postpone the investment. While 75% have no change for investment and 25% don't know the same with existing plans,but they keep in the mind open to see if they need to change the plans in the future. These are so many areas that are very important for us to know. And we communicate that because a lot of times are members make decisions based on what the competitors are doing, what the other industry is doing, what their customers are doing. And our intent is to try to educate people.

4. The reality is that a lot of all over companies were close for an extended period of time. And in the meantime, they paid employees salary and benefits,and etc. One of the things that happened is that while our members of paid their employees,they also paid the tax fortune related to the salaries and benefits, but they didn't get the benefit from the employees. One of the consideration that we hope the government will do is at least ruby of inverse or cut the amount of taxes that employers would have to pay on that point to an employee salaries,where they got no benefits from that. That is one of the top choices of having some benefits in response from the government,of course that would be a fair request.

5. I think one of the realities is that the companies we talk to and the fact that when I look at,for example,Guangdong department of commerce,many of the local governments,work hand in hand with our chamber to resolve our company's issues,especially in the restarting of the operation. Guangzhou FAO works with us very closely to make sure that we release information on time to our company. So that they know what government regulations is oing on. The government especially Guangdong,every one of them was very quickly to resolve issues to help companies get open. The government has been very efficient about taking action. We are very happy to see that all the people that we know carefully cooperative with the government and there's a trust that's been established between government and the company. And that's why on question of the shutting borders are taking actions to reduce the impact of the virus or the spread of virus. People have confidence that the government is doing all the right things. However,the financial area,we still hope that the government will at least provide some tax cut on the employee salaries, in order for us to make up some of the losses.

6. There were honestly I wanna to congratulate the everyone involved the government or companies who have worked hand in hand to reduce the the。 The transmission rate and to successfully come to the very difficult times together. I'm very happy with everything that's going on. And I'm also very pleased with the government's help in bringing in the workers back in order to bring our factories up to maximum capacity in very short time. So we're very happy and we thank you for that.
