China to boost economic reform in key industries

China,Business/Economy, Fri, 23 Mar 2012 IANS

Beijing, March 23 (IANS) China will push forward economic reform in key sectors, including energy and railways, the government said.


The State Council said that it has approved a reform plan for 2012 mapped out by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC).


The government will deepen pricing reforms for resource products and work on implementing tiered electricity pricing for residential users, as well as create a market-based refined oil pricing mechanism, the State Council said in a report.


The government is working on detailed measures to encourage private businesses to enter the railway, finance, energy, telecommunications and education sectors, Xinhua reported Friday.


It added that more resources will be used to foster financial institutions that can serve the agricultural industry and small-sized businesses.


China's interest rate formation mechanism will become more market-directed and a new stock issuance and retreat system will be improved, the document said.


The document said the creation of a reform plan for the railway sector is under way.


In the wake of global turbulence and pressing domestic demand for economic restructuring, China lowered its GDP (gross domestic product) growth target to 7.5 percent this year after keeping it around 8 percent for seven consecutive years,


By setting a slightly lower GDP growth rate, China hopes to achieve "higher-level, higher-quality development over a longer period of time," Premier Wen Jiabao said at the opening of China's annual legislative session earlier this month.


Analysts said slower growth targets leave room for deepening economic reforms, which they believe are vital for sustaining China's economic boom.
