Vice-Premier Wang Yang has urged intensified efforts to boost foreign trade to bolster the country’s slowing economy.
After a tour of three high-tech companies in Beijing on March 23-24, Wang said China still had an edge in foreign trade despite mounting downward pressure on exports.
Companies should improve their products’ quality and make more high value-added products, he said.
The country should give support to export companies, encourage their business model innovation and promote the establishment of cross-border e-commerce pilot areas, Wang said.
China will continue to adjust the structure of foreign trade, and raise its exports to a higher level, he said.
Wang also called for efforts to promote the development of service trade, and improve the country’s business environment to protect the legitimate interests of foreign companies.
