"We need to raise the level at which social security funds are managed. And in the area of medical and old age insurance, we need to make sure that people can reimburse their expenses and transfer their accounts to where they currently reside."
Achieving economic stability remained the government's priority, the premier said, while repeating economic targets this year of 7.5% annual growth.
"Our trade will continue to grow and even at a high speed in the years ahead," Li said. " That will create enormous opportunities for the world."
However, economic growth will not come at the cost of the environment, he said, adding that complaints about pollution and tainted food supplies had been heard.
