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.

China's Muslim's Observe Ramadan
What’s the deal with Hollywood? Usually they fall all over themselves to get to a microphone to pontificate about the latest injustice in the world. So how come we only hear crickets about the crisis on the border? The humanitarian crisis taking place on our border with Mexico is nothing new. It has been brewing for years, even decades, and most of the voices warning of the impending disaster fell on deaf ears. While t ...

Hello, world. My name is Israel. Can we talk? If you’re reluctant to shake my hand, let me assure you of my legitimacy. In fact, I’m the most legitimate nation on earth!

The downing of Malaysia flight MH17 casts new light on just how inept and decadent the United States and Europe have become. Faced with Russia’s annexation of the Crimea and attempts to repeat in eastern Ukraine, the best Western Europe and the United States have mustered are strong words and token sanctions on top Russian officials and several companies. That’s hardly enough to deter Vladimir Putin’s ambitions to make R ...
