Peru's ambassador to China said on Thursday he is paying attention on how the government will place more emphasis on small and medium-sized enterprises during the upcoming two sessions.

"These enterprises will be the answer for the future," Juan Carlos Capunay told China Daily in Beijing.

He said, just like in Peru, most of the population in China are employed by small and medium-sized enterprises.

"You have 1.3 billion people. You need to provide work for them, but that work can not only be provided by the State. You need to give them the tools to establish their own business to become entrepreneurs," he said.

The annual sessions of the National People's Congress (NPC), the top parliamentary body, and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the top advisory body, will be held in March.

The ambassador also said China could set a good example for the world by transmitting its knowledge through initiatives such as One Belt and One Road and a Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific.
