Quote from The Associated Press:

"In a sign of changing styles, the language in Wen's report is much plainer than the often turbid phrasing of years past. "

"The new leaders come to power at a time when Chinese feel the policies that delivered stunning growth are foundering in the ill-effects of corruption and environmental degradation and that benefits unfairly accrue to a party-connected elite. Xi has raised expectations for change in his first months in office, talking about the urgent need to stanch graft and adhere to laws rather than rule by untrammeled power."
