China to push for tax cuts, avoid competitive currency devaluation

BEIJING (Reuters) – China will push for larger tax cuts, Premier Li Keqiang said on Tuesday, adding that it would help small firms facing funding difficulties and widen access for private firms in infrastructure.

He was addressing a joint news conference with the heads of international agencies following a meeting in Beijing.
