TIANJIN, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- China will exhaust all effective means possible to meet the target of improving energy efficiency by 20 percent from 2005 to 2010, a senior economic planner said here Tuesday.

Zhang Xiaoqiang, deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission, made the remarks at the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2010, also known as the Summer Davos, in north China' s port city of Tianjin.

China will roll out better-targeted measures over the rest of the year, including further eliminating outdated capacity, Zhang said.

His remarks came after Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said at the forum Monday that it was no easy task for China to reach the 20 percent efficiency target as the country' s consumption of energy relative to economic output rose slightly from a year earlier in the first quarter.
