Excluding the impact of value-added tax (VAT) credit refunds, fiscal revenue grew 2.9 percent from a year earlier.

The central government and local governments collected 4.05 trillion yuan and 4.62 trillion yuan in fiscal revenue, down 11.4 percent and 8.9 percent, respectively.

Tax revenue came in at 7.25 trillion yuan in the January-May period, down 13.6 percent year on year.
