Premier Li Keqiang urged government departments to speed up the implementation

of tax reductions to invigorate the country’s economy, amid rising uncertainties about growth on Friday.

Li was speaking with entrepreneurs from the manufacturi

ng, construction and service sectors at the Zhongnanhai leadership compound in Beijing.

The businesspeople said they have received benefits from the tax reduction measu

res in the past months, after the measures were introduced by Li in the Government Work Report in March. They

also offered advice on how to further ease the tax burden on businesses.

After hearing their opinions, Li called tax reduction a great decision made by the Communist Party of China Central Comm

ittee and the State Council. It has boosted market confidence in outstanding ways and promoted the stable

growth of the economy, he said, adding that the positive factors for economic growth are increasing.

Unlike the Marshall Plan, the Belt and Road Initiativ

does not require participation in military alliances. It is not predicated on another Cold War. It does not seek self-inte

rested economic sanctions against the rest of the world. Nor does it encourage regime change to force its will on the in

ternational community. It is focused on 21st century global economic development.

A regulation unveiled by the State Council on Sunday prohibits authorit

ies from borrowing in ways that skirt laws and regulations to raise government in

vestment funds, as China works to further standardize official investment actions.

The regulation, published after a State Council decree was signed by Premi

er Li Keqiang, stipulates that government investment actions must take account of eco

nomic and social development levels and the situation of financial revenue and expenditures.

ommunication key to shared future for mankind

China has made various moves recently to expand the new round of reform and opening-up — such as the approval of the For

eign Investment Law in March and further facilitating trade connectivity under the Belt and Road Initiative. It will con

tinue opening its market in a proactive, steady and orderly manner, in accordance with its own development need

s and its own pace and timetable, to benefit Chinese and global consumers across the world, said Tu Xinquan, a pr

ofessor of international trade at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing.

James Collins, CEO of Corteva Agriscience, the agricultural division of US-

based DowDuPont, said he hopes the two countries will reach a positive resolution, to benefit both countries and the r

est of the world. Collins said his firm was “not so much affected” in the short term by China-US trade tensions.

While fast urbanization in China has brought larg

 population inflows from rural areas to cities, only those registered with permanent residence permits are fully entitled to social welfare in their resident cities.

Basic public services should be guaranteed for unregistered

permanent residents in cities, with an increased supply of education resources in cities where th

ere are a sizable number of children of migrant workers, according to the NDRC document.

The coverage of government-supported rental hom

es and housing provident funds should be expanded to benefit more unregistered permanent residents, the document said.

China aims to add 100 million registered permanent urban residents from 2016 to 2020.

By the end of 2018, the share of such residents in the country’s total population stood at 43.37 percent, up 1.02 p

ercentage points from a year earlier, according to data from the National Bureau of Statistics.
