China's tax cuts for smaller companies are mainly intended to support employment and ensure economic stability, Premier Li Keqiang was quoted as saying.
 
China rolled out a series of support measures for its cooling economy last year and is widely expected to unveil more in coming months to reduce the risk of a sharper slowdown.
 
"Implementing tax cuts for small and micro enterprises is mainly to support employment," Li said, according to a statements posted to the government's website on Saturday.
