The news also comes after reports that Beijing plans to drop its Made in China 2025 plan, a medium-term strategy for economic dominance.

Local governments that have seen results in their promotion of stable industrial growth and upgrading will be given priority support, the state-backed China Information News said, citing a new document from the State Council.
