China's fiscal revenues rise 21.9 pct in November


13:31, December 11, 2012

BEIJING, Dec. 11 (Xinhua) -- China's fiscal revenues grew 21.9 percent year-on-year to 787.1 billion yuan (about 125.12 billion U.S. dollars) in November, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) said Tuesday.

The growth rate was higher than the 13.7-percent rate recorded in October, according to the MOF data.

The ministry said the sharp increase was mainly caused by a lower comparison base last year. On a month-on-month basis, fiscal revenues in November were down 257.3 billion yuan.

Last month, incomes for central government grew by 17.9 percent year-on-year to 367.2 billion yuan, while that of local governments was up 25.6 percent to 419.9 billion yuan.

Tax revenues, the main source of the government's income, rose 21.1 percent from a year earlier to 676 billion yuan last month.

During the first 11 months, fiscal revenues totaled 10.89 trillion yuan, a rise of 11.9 percent year-on-year. But the rate was down from the 26.8-percent growth in the same period of last year, the ministry said.

It attributed the lower growth rate to the economic slowdown, declines in corporate profits, eased consumer inflation and government structural tax reduction efforts.

In November, government fiscal expenditure rose 6.7 percent from a year earlier to 1.22 trillion yuan, sending the total spending in the first 11 months to 10.49 trillion yuan, according to the ministry.
