Chinese stocks are on the move Thursday following news that the country’s government will add more stimulus to its economy.

China intends to add an additional 1 trillion yuan to its economic spending. That’s roughly the same as $146 billion. This extra spending is part of an effort to rescue the economy from damage done by several Covid-19 lockdowns.

So what exactly does China plan to spend the money on? It looks like the main focus will be improving infrastructure. However, experts are already predicting that the extra $146 billion won’t be enough of a boost for the Chinese economy to recover, Bloomberg notes.
