伦敦,6月30日(新华)——英国首相鲍里斯·约翰逊周二宣布50亿英镑(约62亿美元)。美元)计划在冠状病毒危机后刺激经济复苏。


约翰逊在位于西米德兰兹郡伯明翰附近的达德利市发表演讲时表示,政府“不仅致力于抗击冠状病毒,还将利用这一危机,最终解决英国过去30年来尚未解决的巨大挑战。”


在一个装饰着“建设、建设、建设”口号的讲台上,约翰逊指出,新计划是一场“基础设施革命”,旨在“建设和重建与英国每一部分的重要联系”。


根据来自唐宁街10号的一份声明,这项大规模的计划包括医院维护、道路网络、学校重建和法院升级,通过一项大胆的“国家复兴、团结和提升英国”的计划。


约翰逊在演讲中表示,冠状病毒危机是英国面临的最大、最直接的经济挑战。


他说:“我们必须迅速行动,因为我们已经看到了国内生产总值(GDP)令人眩晕的下降,我们知道人们现在担心他们的工作和企业。”


"我们不会用人们所谓的紧缩政策来应对这场危机," Johnson并称,"下周(财政大臣Rishi Sunak)将制定立即计划,以支持经济度过复苏的第一阶段。"


约翰逊还表示,政府医院将继续并加强对英国国民健康服务体系(NHS)有史以来规模最大的一项资助项目。英国卫生大臣马特·汉考克(Matt Hancock)将在未来几天列出40家新医院的名单。


英国经济在4月份收缩了创纪录的20.4%。伦敦经济研究咨询机构资本经济(Capital Economics)的英国高级经济学家露丝•格雷戈里(Ruth Gregory)表示,首相的声明表明,英国政府的意图是进一步维持财政刺激,而不是像全球金融危机后那样,突然转向财政紧缩。

LONDON, June 30 (Xinhua) -- British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday announced a 5-billion-pound (about 6.2-billion-U.S. dollar) plan to fuel economic recovery in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.

In a speech in Dudley, a city close to Birmingham in the West Midlands region, Johnson said the government "is wholly committed not just to defeating coronavirus, but to using this crisis finally to tackle this country's great unresolved challenges of the last three decades."

At a podium decorated with the slogan "build, build, build", Johnson noted the new plan is an "infrastructure revolution" to "build and rebuild those vital connexions to every part of the UK."

According to a statement from 10 Downing Street, the massive plan covers hospital maintenance, road network, school rebuilding and courts upgrades, through a bold program of "national renewal, uniting and levelling up the UK".

In his speech, Johnson regarded coronavirus crisis as the biggest and most immediate economic challenge that Britain faces.

"We must work fast because we have already seen the vertiginous drop in GDP and we know that people are worried now about their jobs and their businesses," he said.

"We will not be responding to this crisis with what people called austerity," Johnson added, "next week the Chancellor (of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak) will be setting out immediate plan to support the economy through the first phase of recovery," he said.

Johnson also said the government will continue and step up the biggest ever program of funding the National Health Service (NHS) and Health Secretary Matt Hancock will set out the list of 40 new hospitals in the next few days.

Britain's economy shrunk by a record 20.4 percent in April as a result of lockdown measures. Ruth Gregory, senior UK economist from the London-based economic research consultancy Capital Economics, said the prime Minister's announcement signals that the British government's intention is to sustain the fiscal stimulus further ahead, rather than lurch towards fiscal austerity as it did after the global financial crisis.
