He affirmed the durability of the reform and opening-up policy, called for further opening the doors to the outside world, and welcomed cooperation, investment and other deals with foreign partners, leading to mutually beneficial development.
From now on, according to Li, China will consolidate the results of its poverty reduction efforts and work on “practical issues” such as improving the education system, medical services, elderly care and property security.
He called for greater efforts to fully implement the “one country, two systems” principle in the Hong Kong and Macau SARs, after stressing that in the case of Taiwan no separatist attempt will be tolerated, although the commitment to peaceful relations between Beijing continues and Taipei.
