On the morning of March 6, the first press conference of the Second Session of the 13th National Peoples Congress was held in the Median Center. He Lifeng, Director of the National Development and Reform Commission, Ning Jizhe and Lian Weiliang, deputy directors, were invited to attend and answer questions.
He Lifeng said that the development of private enterprises is crucial to Chinas economy. According to less stringent statistics, we can see that private enterprises contribute 60% of Chinas GDP, 70% of technological achievements, 80% of employment, and 90% of the number of enterprises. This is the so-called 6, 7, 8, 9 of the private economy.
Next, He Lifeng mentioned that he would promote the implementation of tax reduction and fee reduction. The government work report proposes that tax reduction and fee reduction should reach 2 trillion yuan, which is unprecedented in the course of Chinas economic development.
