China's state-owned enterprises (SOE) should deepen reform, promote innovation, and enhance restructuring and management to contribute to a sound and stable economic development, said Vice Premier Zhang Dejiang on Monday.
Zhang made the remarks at a meeting in Beijing, urging the SOEs to make stable and relatively fast development a priority, and fulfill production targets.
Efforts should also go to industrial restructuring and encouragement of core-technology innovation to strengthen competitiveness.
Before the meeting, Zhang visited staff and workers in the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation and China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation, among other companies.
