He stressed that the key to a sustained recovery of the economy is to enhance confidence in development, do more certain things to hedge uncertainties and strive for the best results. We should focus on manufacturing, innovation, and integration, promote high-end, smart, and green development of the manufacturing sector, and blaze a new path for high-quality development of the real economy. We will use high-quality supply to lead and create demand, create more hot spots for consumption, and do a good job in featured consumption and emerging consumption. We should combine expanding domestic demand with improving people's lives, and make solid progress in developing urban and rural infrastructure and public services to strengthen weak areas. We will speed up the development of new forms and models of foreign trade, make greater efforts to attract and utilize foreign investment, and do all we can to stabilize international market share. Efforts should be made to forestall and defuse risks in key areas to create a favorable environment for economic development.
