DAVOS, Switzerland — Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said Wednesday that his nation had been affected by the global slump, but he remained confident it could still grow this year by 8 percent.
While Jiabao admitted such growth would be a tall order, his upbeat delivery went against the prevailing sentiment of doom and gloom here among business executives and economic experts who say the recession and the banking crisis in the U.S. and other major Western economies could get worse.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
