Jia recognizes achievements in SW China "trial zone"


08:10, March 01, 2012

BEIJING, Feb. 29 (Xinhua) -- China's top political advisor Jia Qinglin on Wednesday said that great achievements were made last year in poverty-stricken Bijie "trial zone" in southwest Guizhou province.

Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, made the remarks in a written statement delivered to a conference held in Beijing to address the development of Bijie.

In 1998, the State Council, or China's Cabinet, approved Bijie as a "trial zone" for environmental protection, economic development and poverty alleviation.

In 2011, a total of 175 programs were carried out with an investment of 12.9 billion yuan (about 2.1 billion U.S. dollars), and more than 56,000 people were trained.

Jia urged different parties to work together to build Bijie into a pilot zone for scientific development.

At the same meeting, Du Qinglin, head of the United Front Work Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, also stressed that more efforts should be made to develop the zone.

Du urged improving the zone's infrastructure and policies and accelerating the economic transformation in order to further scientific development in 2012.
