BEIJING - China's economy is functioning well in general, with some problems remaining that require the wisdom of all and solid efforts, President Xi Jinping has said.

All regions and departments have made innovative efforts in strengthening macro control and reforms since the beginning of this year, leading to deeper structural adjustment, a generally normal employment situation and stable society, Xi said at a symposium held with non-Communist figures last week.

After listening to the speeches of participants, Xi offered his remarks.

"Governments at all levels should stick to the key work style of making progress while maintaining stability and actively adapt to the 'new normal' of slower but steadier growth, with a focus on upgrading the quality and efficiency of economic development," Xi said.

The ten non-Communist figures, including members of other political parties or influential researchers and scholars, agreed with the central government's analysis and decisions on China's economic development.

They also presented opinions and advice on a raft of economic initiatives, including strengthening macro-control, promoting the Belt and Road Initiative and increasing support to small and micro enterprises.

China's growth held steady at 7 percent in the first half of the year, with nascent signs of recovery fueling hopes of improved growth momentum in the latter half of the year.
