SHANGHAI, June 18 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Guoqing has stressed promoting high-quality development in the manufacturing industry and accelerating the development of new quality productive forces in accordance with local conditions.

Zhang, also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remarks during an inspection tour in Guangdong Province and Shanghai Municipality from Friday to Tuesday.

During the tour, he visited enterprises and research institutions in industries including electronic information, biomedicine, commercial aerospace, shipbuilding and artificial intelligence, in the cities of Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Shanghai.

Zhang urged deepening the integration of scientific and technological innovation with industrial innovation, accelerating industrial application of innovative achievements, and guiding small and medium-sized enterprises to specialize in a niche market and develop cutting-edge technologies.

Efforts should be made to promote large-scale equipment and technological upgrades in the manufacturing industry, accelerate the construction and popularization of the industrial internet, promote energy conservation and carbon reduction technologies, and develop green manufacturing, said Zhang.

Noting that recent heavy and persistent rainfall has led to flooding and geological disasters in parts of the south, Zhang said no effort should be spared to carry out flood prevention as well as rescue and relief work, improve disaster monitoring and early warning, strengthen inspection in disaster-prone areas, promptly evacuate those people affected, and ensure the safety of people's lives and property.
