The government in China says it will cut taxes on small firms and speed up infrastructure projects.

The measures are part of a mini-stimulus package designed to boost the nation's flagging economic growth.

It is hoped the programme will help ensure this year's 7.5% growth rate target is met, as Linda Yueh reports.
