Spending plans by China provinces
BEIJING, Dec 2 (Reuters) - Yunnan's intention to spend heavily to buy base metals is just one example of the ambitious spending proposals that China's 31 provinces, regions and municipalities have rushed out in recent weeks.
Local governments have treated Beijing's Nov. 9 announcement of a 4 trillion yuan ($586 billion) economic stimulus package as a green light to dust off plans for investments that until then had been blocked by planners who were nervous about creating unwanted capacity.
Here is a partial list of provincial and municipal spending plans drawn from official websites and media. There is no guarantee they will be approved, let alone financed and executed.
BEIJING: The city government plans to spend 120-150 billion yuan in the next two years, catalysing 1 trillion yuan of overall investment.
GANSU: 16.5 billion yuan on road improvements in 2009.
GUANGDONG: Total investments worth more than 2.3 trillion yuan over 5 years.
