Jia Qinglin, China's top political advisor, urged the municipality of Beijing to intensify efforts to promote the development of service and manufacturing industries.

Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, made the remarks during his inspection tour in Beijing from Wednesday to Friday.

During the tour, Jia visited factories, construction sites and communities to exchange views with officials and civilians. He also listened to a report from the Beijing municipal government.

Beijing has taken the lead in optimizing its industrial structure as the output of its service industry accounts for 75 percent of the revenue from all sectors, according to official sources of the city.

Jia encouraged Beijing to continue to promote its service sector by focusing on producer services and expanding the city's service businesses overseas.

While visiting Beijing Benz Automotive Co., Ltd., Jia called for the strengthening of technological innovation in order to boost high-end equipment manufacturing.

Beijing should turn itself into a center for national technological innovation to contribute to the country's economic development, Jia said.

He also stressed the better protection of forest resources and the more efficient use of water to develop modern agriculture.
