BEIJING: The world economy is showing positive signs, but is still fragile and countries should rely on structural reforms, not quantitative easing, to support growth, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said on Tuesday.

Li, who was meeting with the heads of global organisations including International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim in Beijing, said that countries should maintain free trade.

China's economy will remain steady and continue to improve, Li added.
