Proper handling of China's own affairs contributes to world: premier


09:06, November 09, 2011

ST PETERSBURG, Russia, Nov. 8 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao has said the most important thing for China was to "put our own house in order" in the face of the current grave international economic situation.

China had the confidence, resolve and capability to handle its affairs well, Wen said here on Sunday while addressing a group of representatives of overseas Chinese working and studying in Russia as well as some Chinese Russians.

The premier outlined the economic situation in China, saying the goal of employment for this year had been achieved, and the eighth consecutive year of agricultural growth had laid a firm foundation for the national economy and people's livelihood.

He said the general level of consumer prices had shown an obvious decrease since October, but challenges remained ahead in the winter, when demand normally was high and production, such as vegetable production in northern China, was fairly low.

Wen said increasing production was the main means of controlling prices. He also highlighted the need to improve the flow of agricultural products to streamline the connection between production in the countryside and consumption in the cities.
