China’s Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), Ministry of Science and Technology, and National Development and Reform Commission on March 26, 2019, jointly released A Notice of Further Adjusting Fiscal Subsidies for Promoting New Energy Vehicles.

The Notice outlines tightened requirements to qualify for the subsidy and provide a revised formula to determine the subsidy’s size. Further, it includes guidance regarding the paired incentive from local governments, and a few provisions to enhance the overall effectiveness of the program.
