FUZHOU — Premier Li Keqiang has urged efforts to well implement policies to stabilize the development of market entities and employment, and advance opening-up.

Premier Li, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remarks during an inspection tour in East China's Fujian province from July 7 to 8.

He heard a report on stabilizing employment by the provincial government and visited an innovation park named Bosssoft. Praising the parks' achievements in incubating high-tech enterprises and creating many job opportunities, Premier Li urged the local government to provide funds to help incubators reduce costs, such as rent.

Talking with entrepreneurs and fresh college graduates working at the park, he said the country should encourage mass entrepreneurship and innovation by inspiring more people, especially the youth, to start businesses and make innovations.

Premier Li heard a report on foreign trade and investment in Fujian province and inspected Jinjiang international land port. Noting that ports are a key window for opening-up and provide important support for imports and exports, he urged advancing reforms in delegating power, improving regulations, and optimizing the business environment at ports.

He also stressed strictly implementing policies on smoothening logistics, continuing to facilitate customs clearance, and enlarging the capacity of ports in collection and distribution to lower costs for firms, stabilize market expectations, and improve international competitiveness.

During his visit to ANTA Sports, a large-scale private sportswear company, Premier Li encouraged the firm to compete in the high-end market while focusing on expanding the mass market with massive consumption potential.

Hearing the company has created over 300,000 jobs nationwide, Premier Li said the Chinese economy has been more resilient and active as many private companies have grown into large ones and worked closely with a large number of smaller firms and self-employed businesses.

Stressing the role of market entities in promoting economic growth, he urged efforts to provide equal support regarding relief and development to State-owned, private, and foreign-invested companies.
