China faces a tough situation in foreign trade and must work hard to reach its annual targets, said a statement released after an executive meeting of the State Council on Wednesday.
The meeting was presided over by Premier Li Keqiang.
The first measure that should be taken is to optimize foreign trade structure, including encouraging imports of advanced technology equipment and key parts, the statement said.
The second measure that should be taken is to facilitate trade, including clearing intermediary services and fees, it said.
Fund-raising services must be improved, the processes of export tax rebates accelerated and competition must be improved.
The meeting also stressed employment for college graduates. China will see 7.27 million graduates this year, the most ever, and faces employment pressure. Based on existing policy, new measures will be taken to boost employment of college graduates and encourage them to start their own businesses.
The governments policies to subsidize small and micro enterprises which employ college graduates will be prolonged to the end of 2015 and technology firms can apply for no more than 2 million yuan (330,000 U.S. dollars) in loans with discounted interest, according to the statement.
The meeting also stressed further protection of workers basic rights and interests.8.03KRelated StoriesChinas agricultural foreign trade growth slowsChinas foreign trade down 1% in Q1China confident of foreign trade growth in 2014China foreign trade up 10.3% in JanuaryPhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsMore female officials caught in corruptionWhampoa veterans recorded with gloryPolice bust 9 terrorist groups in XinjiangKnife-wielding attackers seized in XinjiangNew regulation leads to drop in petitioned casesHunan plant shut as probe into lead poisoning beginsPolice boost efforts to combat gamblingProject offers jobs openings to legal expertsExperts: Dog meat festival illegalNation looks to upgradepipeline networksSquare dancing in Russias most famous square.
