vernments to ensure stable fiscal spending and further implement tax and fee cuts, the ministry said.
上海龙凤1314By the end of July, local governments had issued 2.55 trillion yuan in new b

A quota of 2.15 trillion yuan for local governments’ special bonds－mainly meant to s 上海龙凤1314

Market speculation is that there will be additional bond quota space to bolster fiscal spending in coming months. But a seni 上海龙凤1314女神会所
or official at the Financial Department of the Ministry of Finance said in an interview this week: “It is unlik

Local government special bonds are seen as an important measur

China should have an expansionary and much stronger fiscal policy in order to inc 上海龙凤1314

The fiscal deficit ratio, which may surpass the government target of 2.8 per 上海龙凤1314女神会所
cent of GDP this year, should be compensated by issuing more central government
bonds, said Yu, who also suggested the central bank lower interest rates for the bond issuance.
