13:30, January 13, 2012

LANZHOU, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- Vice Premier Hui Liangyu has called for further efforts in the development-oriented poverty reduction and reconstruction work in northwest China's Gansu province, an area that has been hit by multiple disasters in recent years.

Hui made the remarks during his two-day inspection tour of the province that ended Thursday.

Gansu was affected by the devastating 8.0-magnitude Wenchuan earthquake in May 2008, the 2010 mudslide in Zhouqu, another landslide in Dongxiang in 2011, and severe floods in Chengxian.

The vice premier called for better work to safeguard the livelihoods of people living in poverty in the area.

During his inspection of the site of a reconstruction project designed to relocate residents uprooted in the disasters, Hui asked officials and workers to strictly manage construction quality and work safety.

He also visited some local residents of ethnic minority groups and called for more support in policy, funding and project planning for ethnic areas.

Also, Hui urged those involved to intensify supervision and administration concerning the quality and safety of farm products and to ensure that supply and prices remain stable in this sector.
