China Vows to Strengthen Fiscal Support in Key Areas Like Tech
(Bloomberg) -- China will strengthen fiscal support in key areas including food, energy, and technology in order to ensure the country’s economic security, the finance minister said.
The government should pre-emptively and pro-actively prevent all kinds of risks in the economy, including around the hidden debts of local governments and those associated with high-risk financial institutions, Liu Kun wrote in an article published Friday in Study Times, a Communist Party publication.
Fiscal policies should also play a better role in supporting the government’s long-term economic goals, such as boosting domestic demand, building technology self-reliance and upgrading industrial supply chains, he said.
