BEIJING, Oct. 30 (Xinhua) -- China's new tax and fee reduction policies saved 1.78 trillion yuan (around 252.7 billion U.S. dollars) in total for businesses and individuals in the first three quarters of the year, official data showed Wednesday.

The tax reduction surpassed 1.51 trillion yuan, which included 703.5 billion yuan from reforms in the lowering of value-added tax rates, 182.7 billion yuan from inclusive tax reduction for small and micro enterprises and 442.6 billion yuan from reforms in individual income tax, Cai Zili with the State Taxation Administration told a press conference.
