A senior Chinese official has called for efforts to speed up the transformation of the nation's economic development pattern.

Li Changchun, a member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Political Bureau, urged more efforts to optimize and update the nation's industrial structure as an important way to accelerate the transformation of the nation's economic growth model.

Li made the remarks during an inspection tour of northeast China's Heilongjiang Province from June 3 to 10.

Great importance must be attached to boosting innovation and enhancing the cultivation of new economic growth areas to take China to the commanding heights of industrial development, he said.

Fostering innovative talents is of importance during the transformation of the economic growth pattern, he said.

China must strive to create a social environment that respects work, knowledge, talent and innovation, he added.

Heilongjiang, China's largest commodity-grain production base, must strive to develop a modern agricultural industry with local characteristics, he said.

The province must also promote the development of agriculture-equipment manufacturing and farm-produce processing, he added.

Li also demanded greater efforts to develop primary-level cultural undertakings.
