Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao reiterated last Wednesday (20 June 2012) that China, though boasting a fairly large economy, is still a developing nation and has more than 100 million people living below the poverty line. Wen made the remarks while addressing the High-level Roundtable of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20 summit), which opened last Wednesday in Brazils coastal city of Rio de Janeiro. He said China faces an uphill journey in promoting sustainable development. Moreover, pressure from resources and the environment continues to mount, and problems of unbalanced, uncoordinated and unsustainable development remain challenging.
