FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Nomura economist Zhiwei Zhang notes that Premier Li said in a State Council meeting that the government cannot rely on expansionary policy to achieve its growth target as room for policy easing is limited, according to the Shanghai Securities Journal today.

Zhang notes that he said that the government should trust the market economy to be capable to correct the cyclical movement by itself, and that government intervention may lead to unintended consequences.
