The Vice Chairman of the Chinese National People's Congress, Madame Deng, had outlined her country's economic targets. Speaking in Tokyo, Japan, she said development was being adjusted to maintain a balance between industry and agriculture.
SYNOPSIS: At a specially convened news conference at Tokyo's Nippon Press Centre, Mrs. Deng told reporters that mutual trade between China and Japan could only benefit both countries.
She was given a warm reception when she took to the rostrum.
Mrs. Deng, the widow of the late Chinese Premier, Chou En-lai, said her country had too many projects to launch at once. This meant that China's original economic development plan could have to be curtailed.
Mrs. Deng -- who heads a Congressional Mission visiting Japan -- said however that one step backwards in development was necessary for two steps forwards.
