Meeting the Challenges

A Historical Record of China’s Development—Speeches by Wen Jiabao at the World Economic Forum Events

Wen Jiabao, Edited by the World Economic Forum

Publication Year: 2014

This book presents, for the first time in English, a collection of speeches delivered by Wen Jiabao, China’s Premier from 2003 to 2013, at the six successive Summer Davos Forums held in China from 2007 to 2012, his special address at the 2009 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, and the transcripts of his question and answer sessions at these events. Offering important insights not only into how China’s macroeconomic policies have responded to domestic and global challenges in the past six years, this book also reveals the strength and purpose of Wen Jiabao and the Chinese leadership as they steered the country through the global financial crisis, made important contributions to global economic recovery, and enhanced China’s capacity for long-term and sustainable economic and social development through nationwide investments in education, environmental conservation, healthcare, and technological innovation.
