In his State of the Union address to the annual parliament session, Mr Wen said the top priority this year is to curb price rises that are hurting ordinary people in the world’s second-largest economy.


Laying out a plan for the next five years, he said the drivers of china’s economic rise remained firm.


He vowed to boost spending on education,health care and public housing, initiatives intended to narrow a gap between the rich and poor in China that has stirred resentment.
