BEIJING, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping has on many occasions called for practicing thrift and ending food waste. The following are some highlights of his remarks.

-- Efforts should be made to enhance legislation and supervision, take effective measures, and establish a long-term mechanism so as to stop food waste.

-- It is necessary to further enhance public awareness, effectively cultivate thrifty habits and foster a social environment where wasting is shameful and thriftiness is applaudable.

-- The strict enforcement of diligence and thrift must become the common practice of the whole society. All must oppose extravagance and waste.

-- The Central Committee's call for strict enforcement of diligence and thrift and opposition to extravagance and waste has won widespread acclaim from officials and the public. There should now be a follow-up campaign to ensure that no one simply goes through the motions or follows the rules as a temporary measure, like a passing gust of wind. We must do everything possible, and we must see things through from beginning to end.

-- Nothing can be accomplished unless we take a serious, pragmatic and consistent approach.
