On China’s 2021 GDP target of over 6 percent, the premier said the number was “not set in stone” but to guide expectations. China is aiming for sustained and sound economic development in the long term.’’
Li said China is still a developing country, and there is still a long way to go before it can achieve modernization.
The fundamental purpose of China’s development is to enable the Chinese people to lead a better life, and the country’s development will be a major contribution to world peace, stability, development and prosperity.
