From Thursday to Saturday, Premier Wen Jiabao made an inspection tour of areas affected by last year's devastating Wenchuan earthquake, and offered guidance on the reconstruction work. He called for efforts to ensure quality and efficiency in the rebuilding work.
Revisiting Beichuan, one of the hard-hit regions of the Wenchuan earthquake, Premier Wen Jiabao entered a busy construction site.
He said post-quake reconstruction is the major part of China's stimulus plan to tackle the global financial crisis.
And he called for efforts to ensure safety and high quality in the reconstruction projects.
Wen Jiabao also visited the Beichuan middle school and Xuankou middle school that were razed to the ground by the quake. Now students have returned to new school buildings. Wen Jiabao said he hopes the students will grow strong and study hard.
Premier Wen also sat down with governmental officials to discuss long-term tasks to rebuild the disaster regions.
Wen Jiabao said post-quake reconstruction is a complex and systemic project, and the priority of all tasks is to rebuild homes for the rural victims. He called for efforts to rebuild all rural homes by the end of the year, and urban residential projects by the middle of next year.
