China will maintain the level of construction of major transportation infrastructure this year in an attempt to boost economic growth, Xinhua reported.
The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said more railway lines, particularly in the central and western regions, will be put into operation this year, which will stabilize economic growth and improve people’s livelihoods.
The NDRC, China’s top planning body, will continue to use preferential measures to attract investment in major transportation infrastructure this year, the report said.
Last year, the NDRC approved 34 billion yuan (US$5.56 billion) for transportation infrastructure, which included railways, roads, airports and waterways.
