HARBIN, May 21 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor Liu Yandong has called for greater technological innovation to rejuvenate traditional industrial bases in northeast provinces.

Northeastern industry rejuvenation has entered a "crucial stage," and technological innovation should be established as a main driver for future development, Liu said during a visit to Heilongjiang province on Sunday.
