Beijing has allocated US$19.2 billion (RMB 119.3 billion) to promote construction of low-income housing this year, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing a statement issued by the Ministry of Finance.

The fund will focus its efforts on cities and counties that have been relying on resources for development and have a large number of small companies, the ministry said.
