SENIOR officials from the State Planning Commission (SPC) say China will maintain a tight financial policy for the rest of this year to stop prices rising again. Six anti-inflation measures have been disclosed by officials from the commission. The officials warned that there had already been signs of prices rising in the past two months and that the sales performance of state firms remained weak. According to a report in the China Securities News, banks will issue bonds and deposit certificates worth 30 billion yuan (HK$27 billion) in the next two months to absorb deposits. In addition, rural credit units have been told to approve more loans to farmers and to provide credit for procurement units in buying harvests. The State Planning Commission also said state procurement units must not issue 'white slips' or IOUs to farmers this winter. Local governments would be held responsible for providing sufficient cash to buy the farmers' harvests, it said. And the local authorities were again reminded that they should use funds as planned and not invest in projects which had failed to gain approval. Again, local treasuries have been instructed not to finance projects outside the budgets. Inspectors will continue to check on the accounts of government departments and price police will scout the markets to report unauthorised increases. Meanwhile, the Government reiterated a pledge to maintain a price freeze on all major consumer goods and staple food items. It has also promised to organise a reliable supply of food in the winter. And state firms are to cut their losses by trimming production costs and increasing exports. Chinese officials have forecast an inflation rate of less than 15 per cent for the whole of 1995.
