Wu Zhiyi / China DailyThe changed emphases contained in the Government Work Report presented by Premier Li Keqiang to the ongoing session of the National Peoples Congress, Chinas top legislature, on Thursday, indicate that the economy still has the potential to be in good shape, says a Peoples Daily article.Despite a lowered growth target, a series of measures this year, in the context of the new normal, mean the second-largest economy can gear itself to adapt to its new normal. And it is not just the central government, local governments too have felt the slowing pulse of the economy and are adjusting accordingly.
The change in policy emphasis for the “three major industries” and the “troika” of investment, exports and consumption, as well as the vow to maintain growth at a reasonable speed and bring manufacturing to the middle-and high-end levels, along with the multiple measures promised to help people start their own businesses, demonstrate the governments resolve to adjust the economic structure and upgrade the economic growth drivers. The efforts to increase jobs, improve peoples livelihoods and boost public services, as Li promised in the report, will also bolster economic development.
At the same time, efforts to increase urban and rural residents incomes, the ice-breaking of various important reforms, the advancement of the rule of law as well as the intensifying anti-corruption campaign, will also help build a joint force for national economic development. Continuous efforts to raise the pensions for the retired, expand the use of government fiscal incomes for public projects and raise the proportion of fiscal spending on education to GDP will also help the government win public support and mobilize nationwide resources for further economic development. The governments courage to face up to the difficulties ahead, from no growth in investment and the insufficient capability to deal with serious pollution and frequent work accidents, also manifests its resolve to overcome them.8.03KRelated StoriesWork report a window to comprehend Chinas new normalLi expounds on new normal in plain styleNew Normal is not bad for China, says Dutch reporterTop political advisor highlights new normal adaptation, Party disciplineMost Viewed Todays Top NewsAustralian bias against Chinese investmentMore representative and robust SDR benefits allAction against smog not enoughVague local rules on dirty cars unfeasibleDiscrimination and poor awareness hinder fight against HIV on campusForum TrendsSquat or sit?To eat or not to eat processed meat?Building world-class universities in ChinaShould exam cheaters be sent to jail?Should you pay your children to do chores?Should grandparents be paid for babysitting?Have you ever been ripped off while traveling?ColumnistsCollege reunion reckoningBeing unaware of hypocrisy is itself hypocrisyFeatured ContributorsAustralian bias against Chinese investmentChina Africa relations – 60 years after BandungStar BloggersTrust and fear in Chinese education By TedMMany teachers in China must do as they are told and achieve high results with their students or face deduction of salary or dismissal.Im not fluff By teamkrejadosI know what this school hired me to do; they hired me to be fluff.
