(NPC) Time-worn narrative from Li Keqiang

Friday, March 15, 2019

Enda Curran Chief Asia Economics Correspondent of Bloomberg says, the Beijing press conference has yet to move the needle. Premier Li Keqiang's comments on the economy are part of a well established narrative.

He made it clear the government will provide support but in a relatively measured way. We haven't had much new on other subjects either, which is unsurprising, given the delicate state of U.S. and China relations. Li doesn't want to rock the boat.
