BEIJING (Reuters) - China's planned tax and fee cuts this year will be larger than those of 2018, Finance Minister Liu Kun told state television in an interview aired on Friday.

Liu also said the government was studying a plan to lower social security fees to reduce the burden on small companies. He said China's proactive fiscal policy would send a clear signal to companies.
