The Premier applauded the adoption of the “Internet Plus” model in government affairs, which has simplified administrative approval procedures, making government services more convenient and transparent.

“The government can now focus on beefing up supervision,” he said.

After the visit, Premier Li also presided over a symposium on mapping out guidelines for the 13th Five-Year Plan, attended for the first time by various domestic and foreign experts.

He emphasized the balance between stabilizing growth and adjusting economic structure while drafting the guidelines.

“Stable growth can create space for economic restructuring and restructuring can enhance the economy’s sustainable growth capability, which together can help tackle problems such as industrial overcapacity, population aging and social insurance weakness,” he said.

The Premier urged restructuring of the economy from both supply and demand sides and placing innovation as the top priority.

“We should speed up fostering new growth engines and upgrade the traditional ones through innovation and entrepreneurship to bring forward a series of new industries and models,” he said.

As a developing country in industrialization and urbanization, China boasts vast current and latent potential, which remains to be tapped through significant measures such as expanded investment and upgraded consumption, according to the Premier.

“We should mobilize social forces to increase supplies of public products and services such as government purchases,” he said.

In addition, the Premier also called for combining innovation in systems and technology, and shifting economic growth from relying on natural resources to human resources.

“The government should also make efforts to boost investment in research and development, protect intellectual property rights and improve the ecological environment,” he said.
