China Poised to Revive Cash-for-Clunkers Program, Official Says

China’s cabinet agreed to revive financial incentives for consumers to trade in their passenger cars to help increase demand in the world’s biggest vehicle market, a government official said.

The cabinet approved the plan last week and relevant ministries are working on details, such as the types of vehicles covered and amount of state funding, according to the official, who asked not to be identified because the matter hasn’t been made public. The government is also conducting feasibility studies on funding of new car purchases in rural areas, the official said.
