Calling mass entrepreneurship and innovation "important pillars" of China's economic resilience, Li said the country can withstand downward economic pressures and maintain long-term economic fundamentals by stimulating market players' vitality and social creativity.

"Mass entrepreneurship and innovation provide strong support for employment," Li said, noting that the initiative has created broad employment opportunities for Chinese people, especially young people.

Governments at all levels should deepen reform to streamline administrative approvals, delegate power to lower levels and improve regulation and services, Li said, adding that they must also improve the business environment and further implement measures to cut taxes and fees on a larger scale.
