Meanwhile, the premier who answers questions in the press conference, respectively, shows the world the eloquence and polite manners of China’s premier, such as Premier Wen Jiabao and Premier Li Keqiang. Their astute response, excellent, and emotional expression makes a deep impression on audiences. Moreover, as a bridge between the speaker and the listeners, the interpretation once is incorrect will cause some mistakes even conflicts.
