Premier Wen stresses stabilization of economic growth momentum

07-19-2010 08:34 BJT

Xi'AN, July 18 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said China's economic performance is consistent with the government's macro-economic controls while on a three-day visit to Xi'an, capital of northwest China's Shaanxi Province, that ended Sunday.

Wen visited Shaanxi Automobile Group Co. Ltd. The 42-year-old company is one of China's top five truck producers.

Wen inspected an assembly line that produces a heavy truck every six minutes. He also talked with workers and fitted wheels to a tractor truck under the workers' direction.

"We must maintain the continuity and stability of macro-economic policies to ensure favorable external conditions for enterprises. But a company's growth ultimately relies on its inner drive. Companies should improve quality, develop new products and expand their market," he said.

Wen also visited Shaanxi Huasheng (Group) Corp. Fruit Co. Ltd., a high-tech agriculture company in the apple industry. The company has production bases in more than 20 counties.

"The global economy is recovering, but at a slow pace. There are many uncertainties. We should expand domestic demand while stabilizing overseas demand," he said.

"Only through sound and relatively fast economic growth can we ensure employment and facilitate the restructuring of the economic development mode," he said.

Wen also visited the Sixth Research Institute of the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation and the Northwest Institute for Non-ferrous Metals Research.

"The world is experiencing a technological revolution and one of its key fields is materials technology. We must always remember that high technologies cannot be bought. We have to rely on ourselves," he said.

Wen visited Zhujiang New Town, a residential community providing affordable housing for low-income groups. There, he entered the home of 72-year-old He Jing, a retired teacher.
