Facing growing social unrest, trade tensions, excess capacity across many sectors and environmental degradation, Beijing has pledged to reposition its economy away from heavy reliance on exports. The new policy reflects a recognition that China's rapid growth will be more sustainable if it is rooted more in domestic consumption. In December 2004, Chinese leaders at the Central Economic Work Conference, an annual event, agreed to shift the economy away from reliance on investment and exports toward domestic consumption - what one Chinese report called a move away from the two "strong horses" of investment and international trade and toward the "weak donkey" of consumption. The government has been slashing incentives for exporters in energy- and resource intensive industries and heavily polluting sectors, lowering or removing tax rebates on thousands of categories of exports, expressly to take the wind out of trade conflicts in sensitive areas like textiles. Simultaneously, it has been raising rebates for exporters of high- technology products.
