Citing the Chinese economic blue book published by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), the report stated that tax revenues in 2005 will be over 3.08 trillion yuan, up 19.7% year on year.

During the eleventh five-year plan covering 2006-2010, China's tax revenues are set to grow at an average annual rate of 13.3%, while nominal GDP growth is estimated at 8% per annum.
