Top Chinese political advisor Jia Qinglin Saturday called for strengthening work in cities to assure the nation's ethnic unity is maintained.

Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), made the call in a written instruction to a seminar held on Friday and Saturday in Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province, to discuss increasing ethnic unity in urban areas.

He urged officials to strengthen the management of ethnic work in cities in line with law, ensure decent services to people of all ethnic groups, and promote the education of ethnic unity to realize the prosperity and co-development of all ethnic groups in China.

Speaking at the seminar, Vice Premier Hui Liangyu ordered officials of city level governments to properly deal with ethnic issues to speed the progress of national unity.

Hui noted that ethnic work in urban areas played a vital part in China's overall ethnic work, and the improvement of urban ethnic work is more important and urgent than ever.

He urged all-out efforts be taken to ensure the legal interests of ethnic people and resolve the difficulties and problems they encounter at work and in life in general.
