BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday that China will expand efforts at opening up as it leads to progress, adding that reforms will be carried out in appropriate areas.

China must unswervingly support the state economy while also guiding the development of the non-state economy, Xi said.

Xi made the comments in a speech at Beijing’s Great Hall of the People to mark 40 years of China’s reforms and opening up.
