Premier Li Keqiang said that amid the increasing pressure on the
economy, the government would pay more attention to supply-side
reform, Xinhua said. Economic growth would be kept at a medium
to high level, he added.
Both Li and President Xi Jinping, who affirmed that economic
fundamentals remain good, were speaking at the ruling Communist
Party's Central Party School, Xinhua said.
China is due to release fourth quarter growth figures on
Tuesday. Growth likely slowed to 6.8 percent from the same
period last year, down from 6.9 percent in the third quarter,
according to a Reuters poll of 50 economists.
