These projects will be included in the guidelines for Chinas 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20), the countrys overall development blueprint for the coming five years.
Implementing the projects will enable China to gain strategic competitiveness and offer better and more diversified services to the public, Li said at a conference discussing the guidelines.
The government will also invest a lot to improve urbanization, transportation infrastructure, agriculture, Internet service and environmental protection, he added.
“The coming five years will be a crucial stage for us to build a moderately prosperous nation. …
“If we can fulfill this important step, then China will be able to circumvent the middle income trap,” Li told the conference. “Therefore we must make sure these guidelines are longsighted, practical and target-oriented.”
The Communist Party of China Central Committee adopted in late October a proposal on formulating the five-year plan on national economic and social development, which aims to build a “moderately prosperous nation” and double 2010 GDP and per capita income by 2020.
The premier stressed that the government will continue to deepen Chinas overall reform to overcome obstacles for socioeconomic development and justice, saying startups and innovation will be nurtured to unleash opportunities in the market.
The government is determined to eliminate poverty and make the people the beneficiary of the nations development, Li stated.
He said innovative macroeconomic adjustments will be adopted to respond to economic downturns.
Li urged government departments to make full use of the Internet and big-data technology to solicit opinions and suggestions on the guidelines from the public.8.03KRelated StoriesChina to seek international advice on growthChina to deepen energy reform in the next five yearsChina to become global leader in renewable technology: expertCentral bank vows to innovate, improve macro-control measuresConsumer spending seen as key to economic growthPhotoHigh-tech fair gears up in ShenzhenManila gears up to host APEC Economic Leaders WeekA 62-year-old fan on model makingTop 10 merchants who raked in big on Singles DayChinese art collectors add fuel to active auction marketCourier companies go hi-tech to cope with delivery rushChina Economy By NumbersChina Economy by Numbers – Dec China Economy by Numbers – Nov NewsmakerTop executive of Infor has head in the cloud Zwilling stays at cutting edge of the kitchenware industryMost ViewedTodays Top NewsGerman rail firm to open procurement office in ShanghaiFocus Medias backdoor listing plan gets govt green lightBaidu, CITIC cement partnershipInternet firms pursue the language of successEnglish-training schools learn lessons and reap rewardsGovt to launch cutting-edge projects, premier saysScandal-hit CITIC Securities restructuring on cardsShanghai to quench Chinese thirst for artHot TopicsFiat SpA Peugeot SA Taxi app Internet finance Housing price Disneyland 12306.cn WeChatEditors PicksTop 10 merchants who raked in big on Singles Day Top 9 numbers reveal breath of Alibabas Singles Day shopping spree Top 10 R&D importing countries in the world Top 10 wealthiest Chinese on Forbes rich list Specials2015 Beijing Forum for Emerging MarketsChina-ASEAN Information Harbor ForumSummer Davos 2015…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
