BEIJING, Feb. 27 (Xinhua) — Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said here Sunday that ensuring fair income distribution is an important task for the government in the coming five years.

Income distribution has a direct bearing on social justice and stability, Wen said during an online chat with Internet users.

“We will ensure that people’s income increase be kept pace with economic growth and people’s salary growth be kept pace with the productivity rise,” he said.

He said the government will tackle the problem from three aspects:

— Increase the salary of the low-income group and the minimum living allowances.

— Contain the salary in the industries with overly high incomes.

— Protect lawful income, ban illegal income and regulate excessively high income.

Wen began his online chat with Internet users at 9 a.m. at the central government website (www.gov.cn) and Xinhua News Agency website (www.news.cn).

He held online chats with netizens on Feb. 28, 2009 and Feb. 27, 2010, respectively.
