Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said on Saturday that China needed more policies to stabilise the country's exports, Dow Jones Newswires reported.
Wen, speaking during an inspection tour in the southern Chinese export centre of Guangdong province, also said China should utilise tools including tax rebates to help exporters, Dow Jones said, citing state radio.

China's exports and imports slowed for the second consecutive month in July, official data showed earlier this month, highlighting worsening conditions in the world's second-biggest economy.
