"Li Keqiang today became China’s first premier with an economics doctorate, expertise he may need as policy makers struggle to shift the world’s second-largest economy toward a model relying on consumption over exports. The appointment of Li, 57, by the National People’s Congress makes him head of the State Council, or cabinet, succeeding Wen Jiabao. The legislature will fill out Li’s team tomorrow with decisions on senior government posts including vice premiers, ministry heads and the central bank chief." (03/14/13)
