BEIJING (MNI) - China on Tuesday urged businesses to resume operations to
minimize the impact of the coronavirus epidemic on the economy, despite
restrictions placed on workers and logistics due to the ongoing coronavirus
Here are the major takeaways from a briefing by Cong Liang, the secretary
general of the National Development and Reform Commission, Ou Xiaoli, director
of the social development department at the NDRC, and Zhang Ying, director of
the employment promotion department at the Ministry of Human Resources and
- China won't allow local authorities to restrict the resumption of
production through setting approval conditions or detaining those permitting
operations to resume early, said Ou.
- One-fourth mask producers have not resumed production, and authorities
should help with labour, raw materials and funding shortages while importers
should increase mask procurement abroad, said Ou.
- China will tap into existing job opportunities, and make every effort to
ensure the employment of medical equipment suppliers and other key companies in
virus prevention, said Zhang.
- China will help private and small companies to stabilize employment
through tax deductions, financial supports, rent subsidies and relieve on
unemployment contributions, said Zhang.
