China's premier says will make good use of 'counter-cyclical' measures


BEIJING (Reuters) - Premier Li Keqiang said on Tuesday China will make good use of counter-cyclical measures and fine-tune policy in a pre-emptive way at the appropriate time, state television reported.

China would continue to implement prudent monetary policy and proactive fiscal policy, Li was quoted as saying at a meeting he chaired with economists and entrepreneurs.

China's economic growth slowed to 6.2% in the second quarter, its weakest pace in at least 27 years, as demand at home and abroad faltered in the face of mounting U.S. trade pressure.
