China's top legislator Wu Bangguo has urged northwest China's Gansu Province to blaze a new trail of development in the western region to realize sound and fast economic and social development.

Wu, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), made the call when he was inspecting Gansu Province from Nov. 9 to 14.

Wu called for appropriately handling the relationship among maintaining economic development, restructuring and sustainable development.

He urged the province to do a good job in upgrading structure and improving people's livelihoods while maintaining a steady and relatively fast economic development.

During his inspection, Wu also called on metallurgical and petrochemical enterprises to take full use of the resources and carry out a new round of technological update focusing on energy conservation and cost reduction.

Wu said that development of new energy and clean energy, including wind power, solar power and nuclear power, would become new points of economic growth. They are also important measures in addressing climate change and guaranteeing energy security, he added.

In addition, Wu stressed that importance should be attached to affairs concerning people's livelihoods, social undertakings, consolidating ethnic unity and promoting social stability.
