He said the country should strike a balance between keeping a stable and relatively fast economic growth, adjust the economic structure and manage inflation expectations while consolidating a continuing recovery momentum.
When visiting a local granary, Li asked farmers and granary workers about grain quality and purchase prices.
He said China sustained a bumper summer crop for the seventh year in a row this year and has abundant supplies of grain, which is conducive to managing inflation expectations, promoting agricultural production and raising farmers' income.
When visiting local manufacturers, a logistics center and a wharf, he hoped that they continue to expand their presence in the global market.
The service industry involves many sectors and can generate lots of jobs, and China has a great potential in developing the service industry, Li said.
He asked local companies to adapt to market changes, raise profitability and accelerate the development of the province's service industry.
