NPC deputy Michael Tien gave an exclusive TV interview to China.org.cn in which he expressed his strong confidence in China's economic development in 2009 and stressed the important role of the high-quality service industry in reviving the economy in the Pearl River Delta region.
Deputy Tien is the chairman of the G2000 Group, the chairman of the Hong Kong Employees Retraining Board and the chairman of the Hong Kong Standing Committee on Language Education and Research.
Q6. How can China maintain its GDP growth at 8 percent in 2009? Do you think the investment program - 4 trillion yuan over two years to stimulate domestic demand, especially consumer demand - is big enough? Or do you believe further measures will be needed?
