BEIJING -- All investment plans in China's four-trillion yuan stimulus package have been fully debated, and would be open for public supervision, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said here Friday.

Wen made the remarks at a press conference after the conclusion of the annual session of the National People's Congress (NPC), the country's top legislature.

He said the stimulus package included many new projects, such as the housing projects for low-income urban residents.

"We will provide housing to 7.5 million low-income Chinese in three years, and provide better shelter for 2.4 million Chinese who still live in shacks," the premier said.

Meanwhile, he admitted that some projects in the stimulus package, such as roads and railways, were included in the country's 11th five-year plan.

A message from the ongoing annual session of the National People's Congress (NPC), or the parliament, tells saving energy and protecting environment is a big government agenda.
