DALIAN, June 27 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said on Tuesday China is fully capable of delivering major growth targets of this year, thanks to steady economic transition.

The Chinese economy has become more stable and sustainable due to improvements in structure and efficiency, Li said when addressing the opening of the Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2017, or Summer Davos, in Dalian.

The government set the GDP growth target at around 6.5 percent for the full year, while pledging to pursue better results in actual economic work.
