介绍:
The Chinese government now says it's launching a new internal coordination program amid concerns about the decline in foreign trade. Chinese Ministry of Commerce spokesperson Shen Danyang says they're working on a number of different plans to increase trade. "Our focus is to help ease burdens for Chinese companies and boost their growth. Currently, we are working on policies in three aspects based on Chinese firms' concerns. One is to cut procedural charges during import and export. Secondly, we are trying to find a better solution for enterprises' financing concerns. Meanwhile, we need to make overseas trading more convenient, including the set-up of cross-border e-commerce platforms." At the same time, Shen says weak global demand and currency devaluations are also contributing to what the Commerce ministry describes as a "grim" situation when it comes to trade. China's foreign trade dipped by nearly 10 percent year on year in May, with imports plummeting over 18 percent.
