BEIJING, May 30 (Xinhua) -- Vice Premier Li Keqiang on Wednesday called for more support to Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region to achieve leapfrog development and long-term stability in this westernmost region of China.

Li made the remarks at the 3rd National Work Conference on "pairing assistance" projects to support Xinjiang's development.

President Hu Jintao met the delegates to the annual conference and thanked them for their efforts made in accelerating Xinjiang's development.

Premier Wen Jiabao and Vice President Xi Jinping, both members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, were present at the meeting. Zhou Yongkang, also member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, also met with the delegates and attended the conference.

Huge achievements have been made in the past two years under a large number of pairing assistance projects for Xinjiang, especially projects concerning Xinjiang people's well-being, said Li, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.

Vast land, abundant resources and huge development potential make Xinjiang a major area to implement China's strategy to expand domestic demand and the strategy to develop the country's western regions, Li said, adding Xinjiang is also a key area to accommodate transfer of domestic industries.
