Chinese Vice Premier Li Keqiang said that China will firmly embrace green and low-carbon development ideals and step up efforts in saving resources and protecting the ecological environment.

China will strive to transform its economic growth model in a bid to build an energy-saving and environmentally-friendly society, Li said Wednesday at the annual meeting of the Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development.

He said China will promote development of the emerging industries of strategic importance, hi-tech industries and modern service industries, conduct technological innovation on traditional industries and continue efforts in eliminating backward production capacities to maintain a sustainable development.

Further, China will ramp up its efforts in sewage treatment and building clean energy facilities, and concentrate on solving prominent environmental problems that affects people's lives, Li said.

He also urged protecting the nation's major ecological conservation areas and facilitating biological diversity.

Facing the climate change challenges, the international community should actively work together on the basis of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol and under the principle of "common but differentiated responsibilities", and strive for a successful Cancun conference, Li said.
