Ensuring sound economic fundamentals is crucial to sustaining the steady growth of China's economy, Premier Li said, stressing that China has taken forceful measures to ease shocks caused by greater-than-expected factors, and promptly and decisively introduced a policy package for stabilizing the economy. "We have the confidence and the ability to keep major economic indicators within an appropriate range."

He said with the reform and opening-up as China's fundamental policy, the country has pressed ahead with reform to develop a socialist market economy, pursued high-standard opening-up, kept foreign trade and investment stable, and deepened multilateral and bilateral business cooperation to keep China a favored destination for foreign investment and achieve win-win development.

Premier Li stressed the commitment to conducting governance to deliver benefits to the people.

Highlighting the support for efforts to ensure the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong and Macao, Premier Li said the policy of "one country, two systems," as well as the policies of Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong and Macao people administering Macao with a high degree of autonomy, have been firmly, fully and faithfully implemented.

We have firmly opposed "Taiwan independence" separatist moves and external interference, and actively promoted the peaceful growth of cross-Straits relations, he said.

Premier Li also stressed the efforts China has made to work with other countries to meet global challenges and promote peace, stability, development and prosperity in the world.

Premier Li closed his speech by calling for rallying even more closely around the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core, following the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, and forging ahead in a concerted effort to build China into a great modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious and beautiful.
