Premier Li Keqiang gave an impromptu speech at the launching ceremony for the National Mass Entrepreneurship and Innovation Week on Oct 19 in Beijing.
His move surprised people at the ceremony, as his speech was not on the agenda.
The Premier did not prepare to address the ceremony, but he said he was moved by the encouraging atmosphere of the ceremony and was inspired to give a speech for the entrepreneurs and innovators.
The event is the first of its kind. To support and encourage mass entrepreneurship and innovation, the State Council decided that a week of each October will be chosen as National Mass Entrepreneurship Week, starting this year.
The event includes exhibitions and investment and trade talks in other major cities throughout the country: Shanghai, Shenzhen, Xi’an, Chengdu, Wuhan, Shenyang, Hefei, Changchun and Guangzhou.
