URUMQI, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Li Keqiang asked the governments of the Hong Kong and Macao special administration regions to pay close attention to global economic and financial changes to prevent economic risks.

Li, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Political Bureau, made the remarks during a meeting with the two special administrative regions' chief executives, Donald Tsang and Fernando Chui, in Urumqi Wednesday.

Donald Tsang and Fernando Chui are both in Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, to attend the first China-Eurasia Expo, which will be held from Sept. 1-5.

Li said that the two regions' governments should grasp opportunities for development in the 12th Five-Year Plan and deepen their cooperation with the mainland.

The participation of Hong Kong and Macao at the expo will not only increase the two regions' influence in Eurasian areas but also promote the development of Xinjiang and other western regions, Li said.
