As a result, the country’s economic structure optimizes with new enterprises that are growing fast in the past two years with services as the largest contributing factor to the economy and is able to meet the targets that was set for this year.
China will continue to open up their service and general manufacturing sectors to keep the reminbi stable within a reasonable and proper range. Furthermore china will create a fairer, predictable and more transparent investment environment for foreign investment and give equal treatment between foreign and domestic businesses.
