08:41, January 20, 2012

DOHA, Jan. 19 (Xinhua) -- Visiting Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Thursday urged his countrymen here to cherish their hard-earned favorable development situation and continue to work on the ongoing development of China.

Wen, during a meeting with representatives from a number of Chinese cooperations, embassy staff and students, said that under the complicated and volatile international situation, China last year maintained its GDP growth of 9.2 percent.

The Chinese economy, hailed by many countries and economists as resilient, is quite capable of adapting to change, Wen said.

"We should cherish the hard-won favorable development situation and be confident of China's future development," the premier said.

The Chinese government has mapped out plans for "stable and relatively fast economic growth" in 2012, including the pursuit of stable commodity prices and maintaining a harmonious and stable society, Wen said.

China will accelerate its systemic transformation and upgrading, adjust its economic structure and shift the mode of development, the premier said.

In 2011, Chinese domestic demand also took a relatively large proportion of the economy, meaning that many enterprises succeeded in expanding their market shares under an extremely difficult situation. < Wen arrived in Qatar on Wednesday after concluding an official visit to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
