DALIAN, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Wednesday expressed confidence in China's economy and welcomed foreign companies to share the opportunities brought by the country's growth.

"I am confident that China's economy will grow over a longer period of time, at a higher level and with better quality and make new contribution to robust, sustainable and balanced growth of the global economy," said Wen at the opening of the World Economic Forum's annual meeting in the northeastern city of Dalian.

"We sincerely welcome foreign companies to actively involve themselves in China's reform and opening up process and share the opportunities and benefits of China's prosperity and progress," he said in a keynote speech.

Wen said new developments at home and abroad "have not changed the fundamentals of China's development," noting that the government has both the ability and confidence to maintain growth.

Meanwhile, he acknowledged it would become more difficult to keep high-speed growth for a long period as the size of the economy expands.

"China's development is not yet balanced, coordinated and sustainable and there are many institutional constraints hindering scientific development," he said.
