Besides, they shall strengthen tax collection and administration, and ensure the continuous and steady growth of tax revenue so as to offer a reliable financial support for economic and social development.
It's stressed at the meeting as a significant task for all the tax developments to implement the spirits of the Central Economic Work Conference. The taxation organs at all levels shall wait for no moment to study and design implementation measures, handle all the taxation work properly and exploit the tax function sufficiently to make new contributions to the economic and social development.
