The country will maintain RMB exchange rate generally stable at an adaptive and balanced level and will effectively prevent and defuse risks in major areas, said the report.

Moreover, the country will fully implement the guidelines and supporting measures on driving the development of the private sector, intensify efforts to attract and utilize more foreign investment, and increase the volume and raise the quality of foreign trade, according to the report.

Steps will be taken toward refining the real estate sector policies and meeting reasonable financing needs of real estate enterprises under various forms of ownership on an equal basis, so as to ensure stable and sound development of the real estate market, the report said.

Great efforts should be made to advance the construction of a modern industrial system and accelerate the development of new quality productive forces, with special emphases on upgrading industrial and supply chains, fostering emerging industries and future-oriented industries, and growing the digital economy, said the report.

Xu Guanju, a deputy to the National People's Congress and chairman of Transfar Group, a leading chemicals manufacturer, said that he was inspired by the country's efforts in developing new quality productive forces in the Government Work Report.

Xu said that the report pointed out the direction of relying on technological innovations to drive development and relying on quality instead of quantity to improve manufacturing, Xu said. "It will inspire us to prioritize quality improvement and technological breakthroughs to boost our competitiveness on the global stage," he said.

Lei Jun, a deputy to the National People's Congress and chairman of Xiaomi Corp, said China's emphasis on cultivating new quality productive forces will motivate companies to embrace higher-end, greener and smarter manufacturing.
