Wen Jiabao is the Premier of China. This is an edited version of his speech to the Royal Society in London yesterday, after receiving the King Charles II Medal. ... China is building a better future for all ...The world will gain from the country's growing prosperity and openness, says Wen Jiabao. Since the process of reform and opening-up began in China, people outside the country have seen the development and changes there in different ways. There is also an intense interest in our visit to London, I wish to take the opportunity to address this subject. Tomorrow's China will be an economically advanced country, with its people enjoying prosperity. Indeed, to pursue economic development and improve people's lives has always been the top government. We will stick to scientific development, work hard to shift the model of economic development, and achieve green, low-carbon and sustainable growth. – UK Telegraph
