Premier: Economy to grow by 11.5%
Adjust font size:

China's economy is expected to grow 11.5 percent this year, Premier Wen Jiabao said yesterday.


Wen, in Singapore on a four-day official visit and to attend a series of Association of Southeast Asian Nations meetings, made the forecast when meeting embassy staff and representatives of Chinese entrepreneurs and students.


China has enjoyed 9 percent year-on-year growth for 30 consecutive years while growth surpassed 10 percent in the past five years, he noted.


But he stressed that the government must prevent the economy from overheating; and make sure that structural price rises do not move toward high inflation.


"Only by achieving that can we enable the economy to grow in a stable and healthy manner," he said.


The consumer price index reached a decade-high 6.5 percent last month, matching the peak in August, with prices of foodstuffs rising 17 percent year-on-year.


Wen also called for efforts to transform the economic development mode to emphasize efficiency.


"An important task for us is to continue our efforts in energy conservation and pollution reduction."
