China to consider adjustment of taxation policy
Adjust font size:

The Chinese government will seriously consider adjustment of taxation policy in the capital market, said Finance Minister Xie Xuren on Thursday.

"We have taken notice of comments on the Internet regarding the adjustment of capital market taxation, and we are seriously considering it," said Xie at a press conference held on the sidelines of the annual parliament session in response to a question about whether the government will reduce the stock trade stamp tax.

Capital market has played an important role in China's domestic economy, and the government pays close attention to the question, the minister noted.

He said the Finance Ministry will research with other related departments on current situation of the capital market to work out relevant policies.

On May 29 last year, the Chinese government increased stamp tax on securities transactions by a great margin. This resulted in a big drop in the stock market, which, however, soon restored an upward trend.

Debate on adjustment of the taxation policy started again recently as the stock market began dipping since last November, despite several upturns which failed to turn the scale.
