Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said here Tuesday China would not change the orientation of its stimulating economic policy as the country is at a critical stage in the recovery of the economy.
Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao (R) meets with World Bank President Robert Zoellick in Beijing on Sept. 1, 2009.
Wen said, when meeting with World Bank President Robert Zoellick, that China's government would continue to pursue proactive fiscal and moderately easy monetary policies.
"We will not change the orientation of our policy," Wen said.
Wen said China would fully implement and continue to enhance and perfect policy in response to the international financial crisis to achieve the goals of economic and social development.
China's economy grew 7.1 percent in the first half of this year and 7.9 percent in the second quarter, reversing a declining trend in the previous seven quarters.
World Bank President Zoellick said earlier China's economic recovery might be better than expected.
In the first seven months of this year, China has seen a robust growth of domestic demand as consumption surged 15.2 percent year on year and investment 32.9 percent. The Ministry of Commerce predicts China's exports will slow their decline or even grow on a monthly basis.
"The macro-economic policy and measures that China adopted in response to the international financial crisis have been proved inconformity with reality, prompt, forceful and effective," Wen said.
