Premier Li Keqiang called for the implementation of new development concepts and stronger abilities to open new development prospects for high-quality growth, during his inspection tour in Central China's Henan province from Nov 3 to 4.

At Donglu village, Wadian town, in Anyang city, Premier Li checked on fall wheat in a field and inquired in detail about farmers' incomes and yields.

China had another bumper harvest this year, he said, and efforts should be made to improve grain varieties and quality.

Scale operations should be promoted in diversified forms in feasible regions with respect for the personal wills of local residents, Premier Li said.

He also talked with villagers and asked about medical care, elderly care, education, and salaries for rural teachers.

Hearing that some villagers are working for each other, the Premier said flexible employment has become a major channel to increase incomes, and life will become better with their hard work.

Premier Li also visited residents in government-subsidized houses to learn about their living conditions. The construction of government-subsidized housing is an important task in promoting a new type of urbanization, he said, encouraging related departments to explore ways to build or rent the houses in accordance with local conditions.

After inquiring about the difficulties and suggestions of the residents, he urged local authorities to make every attempt to help people resolve their problems.

Premier Li heard a report on the province’s efforts in fostering emerging industrial clusters, transforming old growth drivers, and the development of Zhengdong New District. He also inspected a robot company and the engineering research center of Zhengzhou University.

Efforts should be stepped up to enhance innovation development and new type of industrialization, he said, calling for strong willpower, perseverance, and a down-to-earth attitude to make breakthroughs in technological innovation. He also urged Henan to cultivate more talent to play a bigger role in the rise of the central region.

At Sanquan Foods, Premier Li inquired about its production and operation and stressed that safety and quality should be put first in the food production chain.

He also asked several heads of small and micro-sized enterprises in charge of supporting facilities whether they have seen any preferential policies on tax and fee cuts and other needs that they had in mind.

Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 outbreak and global economic recession, the Premier said, the government should take multi-pronged measures to ensure stability on six fronts and security in six areas.

Indiscriminate strong stimulus should be deterred, and policies should be carried out in a targeted way, especially those that help enterprises tackle difficulties and direct fund allocation mechanism.

Market entities' activity should be brought into full play, with employment and people's welfare stressed.

The economic base stayed impervious to fluctuations with positive growth attained in the first three quarters.

Policy formulation and implementation should stay effective and sustainable, in an effort to realize annual economic positive growth, which will lay a solid foundation for development in the years to come.

Premier Li fully affirmed the achievements made in epidemic prevention and social and economic development in Henan province, and he required the local authorities to promote reform and opening-up, step up innovation and steadfast work, and scale new heights in modernization development.
