China pledges to further promote targeted economic stimulus: paper

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China's State Council, or cabinet, pledged at a meeting on Wednesday to further promote targeted economic stimulus steps, the China Securities Journal reported on Thursday, quoting a report by the official Xinhua news agency.

The government would also support railways, urban infrastructure and irrigation projects.

The policy pledge comes after China posted slightly better- than-expected economic growth of 7.5 percent in the second quarter of this year, as a burst of government stimulus paid dividends, while analysts said Beijing would likely need to offer more support to meet its annual growth target as the property market slows.
