Remarks by China premier Li Keqiang
The comments are what you'd expect from Chinese officials but as always is the case with China, the timing and context matters more than the words itself.

- Will ensure power supply this winter and next spring
- China economic indications are within reasonable range
- Q3 economic growth slowed but fully confident to achieve overall goals
