Li Keqiang: "We must reform our economy, we are unbalanced"
The Chinese Vice-Premier, who in October should become the Prime Minister, emphasizes the need to change the national economy: "Do away with waste, of money and of energy." But the country today needs a real internal market and a labor reform that puts the worker at the center. The estimated GDP for 2012 drops again, and will be the lowest since 1990.

Beijing (AsiaNews) - Chinese Vice-Premier Li Keqiang, on the verge of becoming Prime Minister in the Communist Congress in October that will change the leadership in the country, has stressed the need to put in place a plan of economic reforms that will push domestic industries and reduce unnecessary expenses. Li, considered a reformist, thus places himself in line with the current government but is "open" to those who see the current Chinese economic system as a "monster" about to explode.

Several analysts also argued that the Asian giant is too unbalanced in its exports, adding that without creating a domestic market - with the consequent increase in wages and labor rights - China is likely to implode very soon. Moreover, the current trading system forces the regime to treat its citizens as slaves, who - increasingly in recent times - are starting to rebel, resulting in social instability.

Li spoke at the prestigious Chinese Academy of Sciences and revealed that the country "needs to speed up the development of new strategic sectors, including energy conservation, environmental protection, bio-industry and hi tech. Beijing must play a key role in reform, putting aside useless construction projects that cost too much."

Because of the financial crisis of the European and American working world, the Chinese government has been forced once more to revise its estimate for the gross domestic product relative to 2012, lowering it. Analysts believe that figure will stabilize around 7.5%, the weakest rate since 1990.

VATICAN
Pope: on the persecution of Christians, the international community should "not stand by mute and inactive” and “look away”For the sixth time in a week, Pope Francis mentioned the martyrdom of Christians in today’s Regina Caeli (the Marian prayer at Easter), slamming the indifference of the international community towards this "alarming failure to protect basic human rights.” Today’s martyrs "are many, and we can say that they are more numerous than in the first centuries." In addition, “Faith in the resurrection of Jesus and the hope He has brought to us is the most beautiful gift that a Christian can and must offer his brothers and sisters. To one and all, therefore, do not tire of repeating: Christ is Risen!”

Easter: The silence of the innocent and the gag
by Bernardo CervelleraViolations of religious freedom and the West's hypocricy surrounding this issue are likely to drag the world into an unprecedented chaos. But even in silence - of death accepted for love or death inflicted by power - God is at work. An indestructible hope rises on Easter morning and a small opening of the heart is just enough for it to invade a lifetime. Happy Easter.
IRAN
Time for a deal with Tehran, a reliable partner against the Islamic State group
by Bernardo Cervellera A framework agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue has to be inked by 31 March. US Republicans, Israel and Saudi Arabia are fiercely opposed to it for ulterior motives. Hassan Rouhani wants Iran to come back into the international fold. Tehran is playing a mediating role in the Middle East. For Vatican nuncio, “there is no evidence that Iran is preparing a nuclear bomb.”
