Li Keqiang quotes
Almost every year I have heard a prediction of the Chinese economy having a hard landing. But I believe that our economic performance in the past several years...should suffice to put a full stop to such prophesies of a hard landing. As for the projected target of GDP growth this year at about 6.5 percent, I have read some foreign media describing it as a move by the Chinese government for moderate downward adjustment of GDP growth. I should point out that 6.5 percent growth is not low speed and will not be easy for us to meet.
The fundamentals of the Chinese economy remain sound, the capital adequacy ratio and provision coverage of commercial banks remain high, and we have many financial tools and instruments that can be used. We have the confidence, the ability, and the means to forestall systemic risks.
We will strengthen maritime and air defense as well as border controls and ensure the important operations related to countering terrorism, safeguarding stability, international peacekeeping and providing escorts on the high seas as well organised. We will boost military training and preparedness, so as to ensure that the sovereignty, security, and development interests are resolutely and effectively safeguarded.
We will make our skies blue again.
We need to be clear that housing is for people to live in. The additional measures are likely to be more city-specific instead of a nation-wide one.
We must be fully alert to the buildup of risks related to non-performing assets, bond defaults, shadow banking, and Internet finance. Both deglobalization trend and protectionism are growing. There are many uncertainties about the direction of the major economies' policies and their spillover effects, and the factors that could cause instability and uncertainty are visibly increasing.
We will work faster to address pollution caused by coal burning.
In the face of profound changes in the international political and economic landscape, China will always be on the side of peace and stability.
The projected target for this year's growth is realistic. An important reason to stress the need for stable growth is to ensure employment and improve people's lives. All key sources of industrial pollution will be placed under round-the-clock online monitoring.
The world is a community of shared destiny. It's far preferable for countries to trade goods and services and bond through investment partnerships than to trade barbs and build barriers. Should differences arise, it behooves us all to discuss them with respect and a keen sense of equality.
We strongly condemn terrorism of all forms. We express our condolences to the victims and we will fight all kinds of terrorism.
We are seeing increasing uncertainties in the world economy. We need to jointly handle challenges, strengthen confidence and create a stable international environment.
I also want to say here that Europe is an important partner for cooperation with China, and China will continue to dedicate itself to maintaining the good development of Sino-Europe and Sino-British ties. We would like to see a united, stable EU, and a stable, prosperous Britain.
We are embracing a new round of industrial revolution. We need to implement innovation-driven development.
The sharing economy gives everyone a fighting change to achieve their dreams.
It is impossible for us to talk about our own development with no regard for the international economic environment. Therefore we need to work together to make progress through joint efforts.
We should not regulate new things to death, but should first observe. This gives them a chance to develop, which also helps expose gaps in regulation and will make subsequent policies more fair and effective.
At present our country has 12,000 drug wholesalers, 5,000 production firms and more than 400,000 drug retailers. Regulatory targets are many, but there are few people on the ground, making regulation difficult.
This vaccine safety case has drawn close attention, and shows there are many gaps in terms of regulation.
We are fully confident of China's long term economic growth. The confidence is not from nowhere as we are confident that as long as we continue to reform and open up, China's economy will not suffer a 'hard landin.
The Chinese government has no intention to promote exports through currency depreciation, nor will it launch a trade war.
We have the ability to achieve China's main economic and social goals for this year and we will work to maintain any future development.
We have the responsibility and the capacity to firmly safeguard stability in the border area between the two countries, to protect the life and property of our people.
Deep-seated problems in the country's economic development are becoming more obvious. The difficulties we are facing this year could be bigger than last year. The new year is a crucial year for deepening all-round reforms.
With Russia being the largest county in the world by territory and China the largest by population, the two economies could complement each other.
This year when growth in international trade is acute and difficult, the turnover between our two countries is growing dynamically. And this fact alone shows that we have huge potential for cooperation.
We have gathered experience from successfully battling the economic downturn last year and we have policies in store to counter economic volatility for this year.
We will launch relevant and forceful measures according to what we have planned in our government work report.
The overall performance in the economy so far this year is relatively stable and we saw some positive changes, but we cannot neglect the increasing downward pressure and difficulties.
By setting the GDP growth rate at around 7.5 percent, we imply leeway or flexibility. We have some tolerance.
We are reluctant to see defaults of financial products, but some cases are hard to avoid. We must enhance oversight and solve problems in a timely way to ensure no systemic and regional risks.
Fostering a sound ecological environment is vital for people's lives and the future of our nation.
World peace and regional stability cannot be a reality without strategic mutual trust between India and China.
We need to face the situation and punish offenders with no mercy and enforce the law with an iron fist.
