Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao went on an inspection tour of a prefecture in the drought-hit southwest Guizhou Province Saturday to Monday, meeting people there, seeing the dry conditions first hand and discussing relief measures with officials.

Normally at this time of year spring planting would be in full swing, but the drought has made farming impossible in parts of the province.

The premier visited the worst-hit Miao-Bouyei Autonomous Prefecture in southwestern part of the province. It was his third time this year to visit China's southwest.
