More industries are likely to be included in China’s drive to cut excess capacity, which so far has focused on steel and coal, a report said Monday, as President Xi Jinping vowed to “reduce low-end and inefficient supply.” The government may broaden targeted groups to include autos, new energy and graphene – used in making of electric circuits, solar batteries and display screens – said the Economic Information Daily, citing unnamed sources. The newspaper, owned by the official Xinhua News Agency, did not elaborate.

The government will “reduce low-end and inefficient supply” while “expanding effective and medium- and high-end supply,” Xi said.
