GUIYANG, Oct. 8 (Xinhua) -- Premier Wen Jiabao has urged greater efforts to alleviate poverty, preserve the environment and adjust the economic structure in southwest China's Guizhou Province.

Wen made the remarks during a two-day inspection tour to the province that ended on Sunday. The tour followed a previous visit to Yiliang, a county in Yunnan Province that was recently hit by earthquakes and a landslide.

Improving livelihoods in Guizhou will be symbolic of China's efforts to close the gap between the underdeveloped west and other regions in the country, Wen said.

He called on the local government and residents of Guizhou to make arduous efforts for the province's future.

Wen visited the city of Bijie, which was approved by the State Council, or China's cabinet, in 1988 as a "trial zone" for environmental protection, economic development and poverty alleviation, and expressed appreciation for the achievements the city has made over the past two decades.
