China gave no sign Sunday at a world financial summit in Washington whether it will use any of its US$1.9 trillion in reserves to help countries hit hard by the economic crisis, AP reported.

"Steady and relatively fast growth in China is in itself an important contribution to international financial stability and world economic growth," President Hu Jintao told state media at the summit.
