China confident of meeting economic targets: Li

Sep 30 2013, 5:38pm CDT | by IANS

Beijing, Oct 1 (IANS) Chinese Premier Li Keqiang Monday reaffirmed the nation's confidence in achieving its goals for economic development in 2013.

Beijing, Oct 1 — Chinese Premier Li Keqiang Monday reaffirmed the nation's confidence in achieving its goals for economic development in 2013.

Addressing a reception held to mark the 64th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, Li said: "We have the confidence, conditions and ability to meet the main targets projected for our economic and social development this year."

"This year marks the first year in fully implementing the spirit of the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), reported Xinhua citing Li.

He said China had taken the transformation of government functions as a breakthrough point in deepening reform.

Various measures have been taken to properly handle the government's relationship with the market and society, release the dividends of reform and galvanise dynamism in the market, the internal driving force for development and the creativity of the general public, he said.

Li said a holistic approach had been adopted to strike a balance between maintaining growth, readjusting economic structure and promoting reform.

According to the Chinese premier, a series of policy measures have been carried out to serve both the immediate and long-term needs of development.

"We have kept our macro policies stable, innovated in adjustment methods, and effectively guided market expectations," he said, adding that the Chinese economy has shown good momentum for further growth.

China is currently at a crucial stage for economic readjustment and upgrading and still confronted with many challenges. There is still a long way to go before modernisation is achieved, he said.

The premier vowed that China would accelerate its shift in growth model, intensify economic restructuring, and upgrade the national economy.

One month ago, on Sept. 28, pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong ballooned in size as activists from the Occupy Central movement joined the ranks of student demonstrators who had flooded the city's center to demand more democratic elections. Hong Kong's police responded with a flurry of tear gas and pepper spray in hopes of dispersing the crowds, but the streets remained full. While the number of protesters has dwindled in more than thirty days of demonstrations, the activi ...

List of the World's Richest Countries; America's Special Role in It

Oct 28 2014 11:48am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The world's richest countries are the ones where the median wealth per person is the highest. This system ranks nations truly according to the most-representative person in each given nation -- the person who is in the exact middle of that nation's population in terms of per-person wealth. Consequently, for example, if a Bill Gates or other billionaire relocates into a certain country, no matter how small its population is, this won't change that country's ...

A British government minister has come up with possibly the best explanation yet for the planet's stubborn failure to show any sign of "global warming" since 1998. Apparently it's a sign that Britain's climate policies are working. Baroness Verma, a minister at the Department of Energy and Climate Change, was speaking in response to a question tabled by Conservative peer and climate sceptic Viscount Ridley  in the Hous ...

Monkey Cage: What counts as evidence of Syria’s war crimes?

Oct 28 2014 10:52am CDT | Source: Post Politics: - The Washington Post

There is no immediate prospect for international justice or accountability in Syria. Efforts to have the United Nations Security Council refer the conflict to the International Criminal Court (ICC) have been stymied by Russia and China. The possibility of setting up an “ad hoc” tribunal to investigate allegations of crimes committed in Syria is more of an intellectual project than a political reality. While the U.N. Commission o ...
