Wen Jiabao said during a visit to eastern China that industrial activity was improving and employment stable.
He warned the economy was still unstable and said "economic hardships may continue for some time", however.
"We have the conditions and capabilities, and will be sure to fulfil this year's economic and social development targets," Mr Wen said.
The ruling Communist Party set a growth target of 7.5% for the year. Growth fell to 7.6% in the quarter ending in June. Private sector analysts expect full-year growth of about 8%.
