The government will continue to offer more convenience to encourage people to start their own businesses in 2015, aiming to continue boost market vitality, Premier Li Keqiang said at a news conference on Sunday.

"People shouldn't have to go to so much trouble to get their business registered," Li said, adding that market access will be further relaxed in 2015 and business license registration will become easier.

Li said he met a retired woman last year who wanted to start a wedding service company because she was well versed with the practices of traditional wedding ceremonies.

He added that during his visits to venture cafes and maker spaces, he had met many gifted young people.

"When their ideas are put into practice and they produce actual products, they actually boost market demand. I believe there are a lot of people with real talents, and we must lift all the restrictions so that they can make the best use of their talents," Li said.

Li added that the government will adjust the income distribution structure and promote social equity.

"We want to ensure that young people, especially those children from poor families, will have equal access to opportunities for upward mobility," Li added.
