Li urged Tianjin to stick to the scientific outlook on development and put more attention to independent innovation in its economic and social development.

Li also urged the municipality to take the lead in the scientific development and the deepening of reform and opening up in China by upgrading its comprehensive strength and international competitiveness.

Li visited local enterprises, villages, communities and publicity departments in Tianjin.

During his visit to an entertainment room and a library in a local community, Li said that construction of public cultural service should be accelerated with emphasis on grass-roots units.

Li called for the establishment of more public libraries and cultural centers in communities to serve the public, especially the youth.

Li urged schools, libraries, youth centers, community cultural centers to provide non-profit Internet access for minors and better administer websites targeting them to ensure they grow in a sound environment.

Li appreciated the creativity of the local cultural enterprises, encouraging them to present more outstanding works of literature and art to the people.
