China's top economic planner on Wednesday said the country will further accelerate the shift of the economic growth model against inadequate consumption and high energy use.

Zhang Ping, minister of the National Development and Reform Commission, or NDRC, reported to the country’s top legislature, saying the government will focus on raising people’s incomes and improving their expectations in economic situations in a bid to boost domestic demand, especially household consumption.

Shifting the growth model will allow China’s economy to achieve sustainable development. Industrial infrastructure should be further optimized, and science and technology innovation should be accelerated.

Zhang also called for enhanced environmental protection and further energy saving and emissions cuts, saying that the eco-system remains fragile and energy consumption remains high despite the positive achievements made in the 11th Five-Year Plan period from 2006 to 2010.
