Speaking highly of the booming development of entrepreneurship and innovation in China, Premier Li noted that new market entities and startups create the majority of the 13 million new urban jobs every year.

Coupled with reforms to streamline administrative procedures, China's push for mass entrepreneurship and innovation has nurtured market entities, Premier Li said.

The country's market entities have topped 160 million in number, nearly tripling from a decade ago and underpinning China's market-oriented economy, Premier Li said.

Mass entrepreneurship and innovation have promoted the integrated development of large, medium-sized and small enterprises, and prompted the growth of new economic drivers, Premier Li said. He also noted that emerging industries, new business models and new business forms have seen their share in China's total economic output continue to increase in recent years.

Noting that entrepreneurship and innovation require a stable economic environment, Premier Li said China introduced timely a policy package this year and made full use of its policy toolkit to steer the economy back on track.

"China's tax refunds and tax and fee cuts this year clearly exceeded those of 2020," he said.

He urged more efforts to continue protecting market entities' property rights and legitimate rights and interests in accordance with the law, and to fully implement tax and fee cuts, rent reduction and exemption and other favorable measures.

Premier Li also inspected several companies' entrepreneurship and innovation projects via video link, and encouraged them to make new achievements in innovation.
