Government spending and efforts should be directed toward improving citizens' lives and developing local industries in rural areas of southern China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, said China's top legislator Wu Bangguo.

Wu, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, made the remarks during a two-day inspection tour in Guangxi's city of Baise, which he last visited in 2008.

During a Friday morning visit to a local ethnic minority community, Wu said he was pleased to see that residents there are living in quality homes with access to potable water and the Internet.

When he first visited the community in 2008, housing, food, drinking water and transportation for local people were all in very poor condition, he said

Resident Huang Rongbing told Wu that the local government provided allowances for them to build their new houses, and that his family of six earned more than 20,000 yuan (3,082 U.S. dollars) last year, a large amount in comparison with 2007's local per capita income of 960 yuan.

"In addition to improving people's lives, government spending should also be used to develop the local economy and improve people's livelihoods," Wu said.

Efforts should be made to promote vocational education and train farmers to become more competent workers in order to help them raise their incomes, he said.
