Several ministries and departments of the State Council, China's Cabinet, have responded to public concerns in the past week over the state of the economy and healthcare reform, among other issues.

Questions for the National Development and Reform Commission, the nation's top economic planner, were focused on balancing economic growth by cutting overcapacity, in light of a better than predicted 6.7 percent growth in GDP for the second quarter of the year, as reported by the National Bureau of Statistics.
