BEIJING -- Premier Li Keqiang and other leaders on March 6 joined lawmakers and political advisers in examination and deliberation of a government work report, calling for efforts to push reform.

The report was delivered by Li at the opening of the annual session of the National People’s Congress (NPC), China’s top legislature, on March 5.

In his discussion with NPC deputies from Shandong province, Li noted that China still faces a severe and complicated economic landscape this year, and he urged stable and sound growth through reform and innovation.

He said the government should leave what can be handled by the market to the market, and create a fair environment for enterprises to release market vitality and social creativity.

Reform and development should benefit all the people, Li said.
