Wen urges ASEAN members to tackle international financial crisis

China will continue to be an important engine for the regional and world economies, said Premier Wen Jiabao on Tuesday, referring to the Chinese economy as "stable" and maintaining "relatively fast growth".

Wen made the remarks at the 7th East Asia Summit gathering leaders of the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and world economic powers Australia, India, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, Russia and the United States.

The Chinese economy is becoming more stable and is expected to maintain relatively fast growth and develop to a higher level, said Wen.

Members of the East Asia Summit should make great efforts to do their own business well, and be all the more mindful of potential perils and responsibilities, he added.

Wen also suggested that members make more powerful policies and measures to deal with the international financial crisis, stabilize finances, revive their economies, increase employment and improve the people's livelihood, which are the most direct and efficient ways to contribute to regional development.

The summit is taking place at a time when the world is still facing economic uncertainties and other challenges, such as soaring oil prices, food security, natural disasters and cross-border crimes, said Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen in his opening address.

"These obstacles cannot be tackled at the regional level, but need closer cooperation as well as comprehensive approaches at both the regional and global level," Hun Sen said.

In this context, he said, constant cooperation and deeper integration among countries participating in the summit would be the best way to address these problems.

It was the second time that the US and Russia joined the summit since both were admitted to the regional forum in 2011. The forum is committed to East Asia integration and provides a valuable opportunity for leaders to discuss key strategic, political and economic issues of common concern.
