China's premier Wen Jiabao is using today's annual press conference - his last before stepping down in October - as an opportunity to say good bye to the people. He said: "I have the courage to face the people ... ultimately history will have the final say."
He also said he has "many regrets" and that he should take responsibility for problems in the economy, for which he is "truly sorry".
