China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Chi­nese Premier Li Ke­qiang has urged lo­cal govern­ments to push for­ward sup­ply-side struc­tural re­form to help sta­bi­lize eco­nomic growth.

Lo­cal au­thor­i­ties should con­tinue to cut red tape, im­ple­ment tax breaks, en­cour­age in­no­va­tion and elim­i­nate out­dated ca­pac­ity, Li said when he met with the heads of sev­eral ma­jor pro­vin­cial re­gions.

He said that China needs joint ef­forts from cen­tral and lo­cal govern­ments to face up to eco­nomic chal­lenges.

Li asked the govern­ments to del­e­gate more power, and build more plat­forms and pro­vide bet­ter ser­vices for peo­ple who are try­ing to start their own busi­nesses.
