Leng Xinsheng, an NPC deputy from Suqu County in the south of the central province Jiangxi, had some worries before coming to the fourth session in Beijing. The deputy wondered how the government could ensure employment amidst enduring downward economic pressure, whether the government would spend less on people’s wellbeing ,would enterprises face more tax burden, and would the level of funds for shaking off poverty be lower?
“Having listened to the government work report by Premier Li Keqing, I feel inspired.In the report, new achievements and prospects are presented, new concepts and blueprints are drawn up and new goals and measures are set. We are excited and confident in our government. What the report says has removed my previous concerns as Premier has given us definite replies.” On the afternoon of March 5th Leng Xinsheng quoted some of the replies by Premier Li Keqiang when reviewing the government work report at the plenary session of Jiangxi delegation.
