China may raise people's income
Adjust font size:

China's economic planning agency said on Wednesday the country may raise the income of residents to create more favorable conditions for people to spend more.

The government would improve the consumption environment and work on people's anticipation of future spending, an unidentified official of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said in a statement posted on its website.

However, the official did not give further details on these measures.

"To carry out policies that stimulate domestic demand is a very important footing of the country to weather through the global financial turmoil," he said.

He continued to argue that such policies to bolster domestic demand should persist for a long time, as the policies play an important role in spurring the economy right now and will also boost market confidence and increase the momentum of the economy in the long run.

The commission is trying to allocate the new funding from central government for more projects as early as next month, so as to mobilize more investment, he said.

Both the acceleration of industrialization, urbanization, industrial restructuring and the improvement of people's living conditions will create new demand and lay a good foundation for the economy to grow fast and steadily, he added.
