BEIJING - Energy conservation and environmental protection is a long-term strategy as well as an urgent practical option for China, said vice premier Li Keqiang on Saturday, two days ahead of the climate change summit in Durban, South Africa.

The global economic scenario has become more complicated, Li said. The possibility for a long-term downturn has expanded and the process of global economic recovery may see more twists and turns.

"To maintain robust growth, it's a necessity to innovate the mode of development and nurture new driving forces," Li said at the sixth China-Japan forum on energy-saving and environment protection in Beijing on Saturday.

Energy-saving and environmental protection is in line with China's economic development transition.

Without structural adjustment and transformation, it's unlikely to maintain sustainable economic growth and a robust momentum of economic development, Li said.

China will further improve the quality of its economic growth by promoting energy efficiency and energy saving, reducing consumption and pollution, improving environmental protection, he said.
