It has particularly emphasized investments key role in stabilizing growth.The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the countrys top economic planning body, announced earlier this week that nearly 250 billion yuan will be invested in six new railways.The projects include four high-speed lines in the eastern provinces of Shandong and Jiangsu, and in the northeastern province of Liaoning, and two urban rail transits in the southwestern cities of Chengdu and Nanning.The financing for these projects will come from a combination of fiscal funds from local governments, the state-owned China Railway Group and bank loans, according to the NDRC.The government has announced roughly one pro-growth measure every two days since May, according to a report in Beijing newspaper The China Times on Thursday. It labeled the accelerated spending a “salvation to the slowing economy”.”The measures unveiled by the government this month are designed to inject money into certain regions to boost construction,” said Zhang Hanya, president of the Investment Association of China.Chinas Ministry of Finance has confirmed “significantly accelerating” fiscal expenditure. It said fiscal spending hit 1.2535 trillion yuan in April, surging 33.2 percent year on year. The growth rate sharply outran the 8.2 percent recorded for fiscal revenues in the month.In the first four months, total fiscal spending accounted for 26.4 percent of the annual budget, compared to 26 percent for the same period last year, the ministry said.Fiscal spending on transport infrastructure, energy savings and environmental protection, as well as affordable housing saw the fastest growth.In order to ensure much-needed funds for regional projects, a credit asset securitization (CAS) program worth 500 billion yuan was announced by the Chinese cabinet last week, through which banks credit assets with poor liquidity and predictable income are sold in the form of securities in the capital market to generate liquidity and redistribute capital.Money generated from the CAS program will be mainly used in refurbishing rundown housing, water projects and extending railways in central and west China, according to the cabinet.Dragged by a downturn in the housing market and lackluster exports amid a uneven global economic recovery, Chinas economic growth in the first quarter slowed to 7 percent, the lowest quarterly level since 2009.HSBC data released on Thursday on Chinas May manufacturing activity has shown persistent weakness in the economy. The flash manufacturing purchasing managers index stood at 49.1 in May, which still marked a contraction despite minor improvement from 48.9 in April.As the downward pressure on the economy mounts, the worlds second-largest economy has also turned to monetary easing measures to spur growth. The central bank has cut interest rates three times since November. The reserve requirement ratio (RRR) was also dropped twice, in February and April.Liang Hong, chief economist at the China International Capital Corporation, a joint venture investment bank, predicted the central bank will cut the RRR by another 200 basis points within the year.”And if capital flow out of the country quickens further, the RRR cuts may even exceed our expectations,” Liang said.8.03KRelated StoriesChina fiscal revenue remains low, spending quickensChina urges local govts to deepen fiscal reformsChina fiscal revenue rises 5.8% in MarchLi promises action to help growth levelChinas policy buffers provide time, space for reformsGovernment revenues move to center stagePhotoWelders work hard to make a livingBeautiful China 2015, Year of Silk Road Tourism held in ItalyDisney flagship store opens in ShanghaiHit on the rail: Fast speed and steady handsTop 10 most expensive supercars at Auto Shanghai 2015Students from vocational schools also make big bucksChina Economy By NumbersChina Economy by Numbers – Dec China Economy by Numbers – Nov NewsmakerTop executive of Infor has head in the cloud Zwilling stays at cutting edge of the kitchenware industryMost ViewedTodays Top NewsMade in China, reincarnatedChinese shares close higher ThursdayRussian dual-screen YotaPhone 2 debuts in ChinaQihoo partners with property giant in smart home driveWelders work hard to make a livingChina May flash HSBC factory PMI shrinks for 3rd monthPremier Lis visit to boost China-Colombia trade co-opChinas manufacturing activity contracts in May: surveyHot TopicsFiat SpA Peugeot SA Taxi app Internet finance Housing price Disneyland 12306.cn WeChatEditors PicksNew Russian kid on the block joins crowded market Top 10 most expensive supercars Alibabas five most promising businesses Top 10 regions with the best appetite SpecialsBoao Forum For Asia 2015China Development Forum 2015CEO roundtable: new normal& strategies…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
