Question from Financial Times: How the Chinese government will handle financial and debt risks?

Premier Li Keqiang: There is concern about downward pressure in the Chinese economy. Last year, China achieved its GDP growth target. The comprehensive public audit last year showed that the government debt is controllable, and below the internationally recognized warning line. The government has tightened regulation and implemented Basel III. Defaults may not be avoidable in some cases but the government will work to reduce systemic risks.

People’s Daily: Whether there are institutional flaws and what will be the next steps in China’s anti-corruption drive?

Premier Li Keqiang: The Party and government are firm in fighting corruption with zero tolerance. China has the rule of the law. All corrupt officials will be dealt with equally, regardless of their position. A list of powers will be released to the public. There will be a full audit in key areas like land transfer and mining rights so corrupt officials have nowhere to hide.

Singapore’s Zaobao.com on China’s diplomacy with neighboring countries.

Premier Li Leqiang: China is determined to follow a path of peaceful development, and uphold its sovereignty and territorial integrity. As long as neighbors can manage difference and respect each other’s interest then there will not be clashes. In Vietnam last year, I reached a consensus with the Vietnamese leaders. I also talked about China’s international relations with a local shop owner.

Reuters: What was the biggest challenge in China’s economic growth over the last year and what issues need to be resolved?

Premier Li Keqiang: The biggest challenge has been downward pressure. There was a money squeeze last year in the inter-bank lending rate and slumps in some key indicators. Some said that there would be a hard landing in the Chinese economy. Institutional solutions were necessary, including macro control, restructuring and allowing the market to play a greater role. We met our targets. This year there are greater challenges — maintaining growth and employment, controlling inflation and environmental protection. We need to be prepared. The Chinese economy has great potential and we have the ability to maintain full control this year.

CCTV on streamlining administration: How can the government ensure that regulations are fully implemented?
Premier Li Keqiang: Last year, 416 administrative items were cancelled or delegated to local governments. The reform has made the market more dynamic. Newly registered companies grew 27.6 percent last year and private companies grew 30 percent — the highest figure in 10 years. Streamlining administration is the key to energizing the market. Letting go doesn’t mean the government will not be in control, it means making improvements, punishing IP infringements and polluting industries harshly and increasing market oversight. The government is determined to see the reform through and manage the government-market relationship.
