BEIJING, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has called for more efforts to push forward the reform and opening-up and maintain the economic operation within a reasonable range.
The Chinese economy has achieved steady growth at a medium- and high-speed since the beginning of this year, which did not come easily, Li said Tuesday while chairing a symposium attended by economists and entrepreneurs to analyze the current economic situation and solicit advice for the economic work at next stage.
The economy has been operating within a reasonable range with newly-added urban jobs meeting the annual target ahead of schedule, Li said.
Noting that the downward economic pressure is increasing, prices of some products like pork are rising and enterprises are facing more difficulties, Li urged solid efforts to ensure the achievement of the annual economic targets.
