China says will step up proactive fiscal policy efforts, encourage credit support
BEIJING (Reuters) - China will step up proactive fiscal policy efforts now that commodity prices are relatively low, the State Council, or cabinet, said in a notice published on its website on Tuesday.
The notice is a summary of a routine State Council meeting held by China's Premier Li Keqiang on Monday.
The State Council also said it would encourage China's policy banks to step up credit support.
It reaffirmed that China would actively reduce overcapacity and further liberalize infrastructure investment, meaning a further opening up to private investment.
