Li Keqiang Meets with Editor of the Financial Times Lionel Barber

In the afternoon of March 31, 2015, Premier Li Keqiang met with Editor of the Financial Times Lionel Barber of the UK at the Great Hall of the People.

Li Keqiang expressed that currently the world economy is still undergoing profound adjustment and its recovery remains sluggish. Faced with the pressure of economic downturn, we have adopted the policy of targeted adjustment and control, and strengthened the pre-adjustment and fine tuning of the economy. Meanwhile, we have intensified our efforts in reform concerning streamlining administration and delegating power to lower levels as well as delegating power and tightening control at the same time, and stimulated the market’s vitality, making the economy operate in a reasonable range. As the world’s second largest economy, it is never easy for China to maintain a medium-to-high speed growth. We will strive to maintain a balance between stabilizing growth, advancing reform, adjusting structure and benefiting the people. China completely has the conditions to achieve a sustained and healthy development of the economy.

Li Keqiang pointed out that China has deeply integrated with the world. China is an active participant and constructer of the international economic and financial system. China’s development is peaceful, open, mutually beneficial and reciprocal, which will bring more opportunities to the world. I hope the international media can make objective reports on China’s development and changes, and can deliver the forecast of China’s favorable economic development in the long run, thus to promote China and other countries to deepen understanding, seek common points while reserving differences, and strengthen cooperation.

Li Keqiang also answered other questions proposed by Lionel Barber.

Lionel Barber expressed that China’s economy is making a historic transformation. The international community pays high attention to China’s economic development, and is expecting China to continue to play a constructive role in international affairs.
