Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Tuesday told Japanese public broadcaster NHK in Tokyo that he will do his best to promote China's social fairness in the next three years of his term as premier, chinanews.com.cn reported Wednesday.
Wen said education fairness will be the priority of that goal, and China will strive to provide every person in the country with equal opportunities for education.
Medical service and social security come next in his agenda. He pledged that China will further promote its medical reform as well as increase social security coverage for its huge population.
China will also take measures to increase its workers' income and will spend more on supporting society's vulnerable groups to distribute its social wealth more evenly, Wen said.
All these goals have already been on the government's agenda and will be realized step by step, Wen said, adding that only by realizing social fairness, can people gain happiness and dignity.
