15:39, July 02, 2012

BEIJING, July 2 (Xinhua) -- Premier Wen Jiabao has called for reform to China's scientific and technological system to make it better serve the country's development, at a conference attended by China's top scientists and engineers.

The system should suit the socialist market economy as well as laws and regulations, Wen said.

The speech, which was publicized on Monday, was originally delivered on June 11, at the biennial conference of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

Efforts should be made to combine science and technology with economic and social development and give full play to the market in optimization of resources, according to Wen.

The premier said he believes enterprises' motives in scientific and technological innovation, as well as the establishment of a pioneering system that is market-oriented and with the enterprises as the mainstay, are important for systematic reform.

He urged sharing resources and better handling the relationship between different research approaches such as those for basic theories, public interests and applicable techniques.
