Premier Li Keqiang vowed to build a sound social security net for the public, including an integrated pension arrangement for rural and urban residents.

More than 800 million of China's populace are covered by different pension programs, Li said.

The government will gradually enhance the pension level and merge scattered pension arrangements to promote equal access to social welfare, he said.

Premier Li Keqiang met journalists from home and abroad at a press conference on March 13, shortly after the annual parliamentary session ended in Beijing.

It is the second time Li has met the press at the Great Hall of the People since he assumed the premiership.
