The offer comes as Beijing seeks to cushion its economy against a growth slowdown due to higher fuel prices, low demand, skyrocketing prices of raw materials as well as the demand of the central government not to raise prices, with smaller companies serving the domestic market absorbing the costs.

The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) has also been tasked to spur domestic demand after noting that foreign buyers are cutting back on purchases from China, which for several decades has been tagged as the world’s factory.

The funding will be offered to banks via the People’s Bank of China’s re-lending facility this year, state broadcaster CCTV reported, citing a State Council meeting chaired by Premier Li Keqiang. The cabinet also mentioned using the PBOC’s rediscounting facility as part of the effort to aid smaller firms.
