Jiang said China’s successful shift from an investment- and foreign trade-driven economy has been accompanied by its reform endeavors in which the market has played a decisive role. The new round of reform has been in effect since 2013, one year after Xi became China’s top leader.
He said the Chinese government has rolled out 336 reform measures under 60 categories to deepen reform, and in 2016, China accomplished 97 key reform tasks on the central government level and 194 on ministerial levels.
