China boosts liquidity to offset cash demand for tax payments

China boosts liquidity to offset cash demand for tax payments

Measures included certain tax cuts. The change of approach is being driven largely by China's debt load, which makes funding a splurge on bridges and railways risky for financial stability. December's "abysmal" trade data and manufacturing contraction have "translated to a consensus by authorities that the economy needs more decided support and today's large injection reflects that", said Trinh Nguyen, senior economist for emerging Asia at Natixis in Hong Kong.

Output in the USA helps tame prices and reduce volatility, which is one of the ultimate aims of the OPEC+ initiative, he said. The kingdom last week raised its estimate for crude reserves after its first independent audit in almost four decades. Consulte Mais Informação

The vote had given the prime minister a "massive mandate" to go back to Brussels and get a new deal, he said - though European Union leaders have insisted the current deal is the "best and only" one available.
