The Government Work Report, delivered by Premier Li Keqiang on Saturday to the top legislature, confirmed that economic growth remains the government's key objective. It emphasized the objective of doubling the 2010 GDP and per capita personal income levels by 2020 and called for average annual GDP growth of at least 6.5 percent over the next five years. Accordingly, the target for 2016 was set at 6.5-7 percent, down from about 7 percent for 2015.
