Wen Jiabao: China still developing nation

Athens, Oct5, 2010 (Calcutta Tube) Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao said Sunday the country remains a developing nation despite great changes over the past three decades.

According to Xinhua, Wen, who is on a visit to Greece, said: ‘Although China’s total gross domestic product (GDP) and external trade are among the largest in the world, the basic reality about China — a populous country with a weak economic foundation and uneven development — has not changed.’

China still has a long way to go to completely change its backwardness, he said in a speech at the Greek parliament, adding that China needs a peaceful and stable external environment and closer cooperation with other countries.
