Many Local Gov'ts Aim for Lower GDP Growth This Year
(Beijing) – Most of the local governments that have announced their GDP targets for this year aimed lower than they did in 2013, citing the need to rebalance the economy and improve the quality of growth. Many missed their growth targets last year.
The announcements were made after the governments of 28 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions held their annual lianghui, or meetings of the provincial legislature and political advisory body, in January. The provinces of Anhui, Hunan and Hainan have not yet held the meetings.
