Leaders have pledged to cut taxes more aggressively this year to support a slowing economy, amid a trade dispute with the United States. 

“In future, there will be more measures to reduce taxes for the manufacturing sector,” Wei was quoted by state television as saying. 

The Government will reduce administrative fees and transaction costs for industrial enterprises, and promote supply-side structural reform to reduce excess capacity, while promoting new sectors such as new energy vehicles and driverless cars, he said. 

The commercial use of 5G technology would be promoted this year, allowing some regions to issue temporary 5G licenses, paving the way for launching 5G mobile phones and iPads later this year, Wei said.
