China will actively foster new growth drivers while transforming and upgrading traditional ones so that they will form "twin engines" to propel China's development.
China will endeavor to maintain medium-high growth in the long term and promote the development toward the medium-high end.
Asia is home to the largest number of emerging economies and has kept up growth momentum.
In Asia, developing countries alone recorded average growth of 6.5 percent in 2015, contributing about 44 percent of the world's total growth.
We have reason to be more confident, but we must foster further growth momentum, and play a more important role in the economic recovery of Asia itself and the world at large.
We hope that all countries in the world will deepen cooperation, coordinate policy and oppose protectionism in any form.
One important reason why Asia had achieved a rapid growth over the past decades is that the region kept a generally peaceful and stable environment.
Dialogue and cooperation is the golden key.
Inspired by history and experiences after the WWII, Asian countries should be good neighbors and friends and not be disturbed by minor frictions and contradictions, no matter what stage of development they are in.
Asian economy is in a difficult situation, we called for coordination and united efforts to overcome difficulties.
Eight years have passed since the occurrence of the international financial crisis, but its profound impacts have not been eliminated.
The recovery remains uneven in the emerging economies and sluggish in the developed ones.
The government will resolutely take comprehensive measures if the economic growth slips out of the "reasonable range." The government will prevent the loss of speed and maintain economic growth within a reasonable range.
