This book presents, for the first time in English, a collection of speeches delivered by Wen Jiabao, China’s Premier from 2003 to 2013, at the six successive Summer Davos Forums held in China from 2007 to 2012, his special address at the 2009 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, and the transcripts of his question and answer sessions at these events. Offering important insights not only into how China’s macroeconomic policies have responded to domestic and global challenges in the past six years, this book also reveals the strength and purpose of Wen Jiabao and the Chinese leadership as they steered the country through the global financial crisis, made important contributions to global economic recovery, and enhanced China’s capacity for long-term and sustainable economic and social development through nationwide investments in education, environmental conservation, healthcare, and technological innovation.

Wen Jiabao served as the sixth Premier of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China from 2003 to 2013. He was a member of the Politburo Bureau from 2002 to 2012, the Chairman of the Finance and Economy Leading Small Group from 2007 to 2012, the Director of the State Energy Commission from 2003 to 2013, and the head of State Council Leading Groups for Western China Development and for Revitalizing Northeast China and Other Old Industrial Bases. Wen Jiabao served as Vice Premier of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China from 1998 to 2003.


The World Economic Forum (WEF) was founded in 1971 as a non-profit foundation independent from political, partisan, or national interests. Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the Forum is an international organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas. The “Summer Davos,” formally known as the Annual Meeting of the New Champions, is the leading global business gathering in Asia organized by the WEF. Hosted by China since 2007, the Summer Davos brings together over 2,000 participants including leaders from business, government, media, academia, and civil society from 90 countries to discuss global issues and risks, share solutions, and transform agendas into action.
