ABSTRACT
The article offers an analysis of the new economic stimulus package launched by the Chinese government on April 2, 2014. It observes that the new package is very modest compared with the spending programme launched in late 2008 during the global financial crisis. It also speculates that tight credit conditions will continue to make life hard for chemical companies.
