||1. 6.5% is the minimum annual growth target
||China must achieve an annual economic growth rate of at least 6.5 percent for the next five years in order to realize its goal of doubling 2010's GDP and per-capita personal income levels by 2020. This level of growth is also a requirement to ensure that China overcomes the middle-income trap. If, during the 13th five year plan, China's economy grows at 6.5 percent or above China will be able to take a historic leap to join the ranks of high-income countries.
||2. Promoting structural reform with a streamlined policy approach
||In 2015, the Chinese Government rejected a scattergun approach to stimulating the economy while continuing to promote structural reform. In 2016, the beginning of the 13th five year period, the government has underscored the importance of structural reform, especially supply-side structural reform. An improved supply environment will help make supply more robust, efficient and better structured, thus increasing the stability, coordination and sustainability of economic growth.
||3. Debut of a "new economy"
||The "new economy" is comprised of new industries, technologies and forms of business that have emerged under the Internet Plus strategy. Internet Plus calls for the penetration of the Internet into all industries. This concept has not only unleashed existing productive forces, but also fostered new growth engines. As it seeks to surmount obstacles, China must speed up structural adjustments while exploring new areas of growth. These initiatives will enable the Chinese economy to register long-term, stable growth with higher quality and enhanced efficiency.
||4. Poverty alleviation is a difficult task
||Poverty reduction has always featured prominently in Premier Li Keqiang's annual government work reports. He also has continued to stress the importance of supervision, inspection and independent evaluation of poverty alleviation programs. Unlike previous campaigns, the current one aims to lift everyone under the poverty line out of poverty without exception. China is giving top priority to poverty alleviation as it strives to accomplish its goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects. The high political attention China has given to poverty reduction is rarely seen in other countries.
||5. Making "Made in China" shine
||Premier Li has long been known as an advocate of China's high-speed rail technology, a symbol of the country's manufacturing prowess. But high-speed rail is only part of the story. Chinese manufacturers are also striving to excel in a wider range of sectors including technology, standards, and services.
