PM Meets the Press

Beijing Review - - Npc Cppcc Close-up -

On March 20, Chi­nese Pre­mier took ques­tions from the press af­ter the con­clu­sion of the First Ses­sion of the 13th Na­tional Peo­ple’s Congress (NPC) in Bei­jing. Edited ex­cerpts of his com­ments fol­low: shared ben­e­fits through con­sul­ta­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion.

China’s eco­nomic growth con­trib­utes to both global re­cov­ery and global peace, as stronger co­op­er­a­tion and trade bring more ne­go­ti­a­tions and less con­flict.

As a de­vel­op­ing coun­try, China hopes for a peace­ful in­ter­na­tional en­vi­ron­ment to achieve mod­ern­iza­tion. China will not seek hege­mony even if it grows stronger in the fu­ture.

China will not aban­don a sin­gle inch of its own land, nor will it take or oc­cupy an inch of an­other coun­try’s land.

While China is ready to ful­fill its in­ter­na­tional re­spon­si­bil­i­ties as a large de­vel­op­ing coun­try, it will fo­cus on managing its own af­fairs well, as it still faces many dif­fi­cul­ties and press­ing is­sues con­cern­ing Chi­nese peo­ple’s lives. China is clear about the sub­stan­tial agenda it con­fronts.
