Wen stresses reform, openness

PREMIER Wen Jiabao said yesterday China must deepen reforms and further open up as the country tackles economic woes.

The policy of reform and opening up is the key choice that determines the future of China in the contemporary era and the country's powerful weapon in fighting the global financial crisis, said Wen at a panel discussion with lawmakers from the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

"The more difficulties we face, the more firmly we should stick to reforms and opening up," Wen told the lawmakers at the National People's Congress session.

The country should improve its development model with the spirit of reform and innovation and forge its advantages in international economic cooperation and competition by adhering to opening up, said Wen.

"Only by deepening reforms can we continuously perfect the socialist system and fully mobilize the enthusiasm and creativity of the people ... Only by opening up can we learn from the achievements of human society and better tap the domestic and foreign markets and resources," he said.

Other senior leaders stressed more efforts for people's well-being and economic development yesterday.

Li Changchun, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China's Central Committee, urged a better "soft environment" for China's development.

The government should strengthen the management of the Internet, radio and TV broadcasts, the publication market and campus environment to curb the spread of "decadent, backward and vulgar" culture among the youth, Li said at a panel discussion with lawmakers from the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
