    By Tim Cheung 03 Aug 2020

    Xinhua News Agency reported the Politburo held a meeting on the economy on 30 July (Thursday). The CCP also held a meeting with non-CCP political parties and non-political representatives. President Xi chaired both meetings. Compared to the meeting held on 17 April, we note some changes in wording were made to the remarks on monetary and fiscal policies in the 30 July meeting. 30 July meeting (as per Xinhua News Agency): - "While requiring full implementation of macro policies, the meeting called for pursuing a more proactive and effective fiscal policy that delivers solid outcomes, and a more flexible and appropriate monetary policy that targets sound results, according to the meeting". 17 April Meeting (as per Xinhua News Agency): - "Monetary policies should be more flexible and balanced and instruments such as reserve requirement ratio cuts, interest rate reductions and reloans should be fully leveraged to ensure reasonable and sufficient liquidity and a lower interest rate in the loan market, the meeting said, stressing the need to channel capital into the real economy, especially medium-sized, small and micro enterprises".
