The monetary response should focus on maintaining lower interest rates and ensuring sufficient liquidity to help achieve debt sustainability, and fiscal authorities need to enlarge public spending and cut taxes with an extended deficit, said policy advisers.
The People’s Bank of China, the central bank, pledged over the weekend it would implement “a more flexible and powerful” monetary policy to counter economic downturn pressure and mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 shocks, while maintaining financial stability.
Monetary policy tools include re-lending and re-discounting facilities, through which the central bank can provide funds to commercial banks.
The government will raise the fiscal deficit ratio, issue special treasury bonds to counter the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact, increase local government special bonds and continually implement tax and fee cuts, Finance Minister Liu Kun said on Thursday.
The number of new infections in China has stabilized at very low levels, and China’s economy continued to recover in April after sharply contracting in the first quarter. Industrial output has risen year-on-year and investment has strongly improved. But consumption momentum has remained weak.
