The country needed to develop more core and key technologies to support its transformation of the economic growth pattern and the economic restructuring, he told the lawmakers.

He called for the establishment of a market-oriented technological innovation system, in which enterprises play the leading role and which combines the efforts of enterprises, learning and research institutes.

He said higher education and research institutes should play a more important role in scientific and technological innovation.

The President also stressed the coordination of industrialization, urbanization, and agricultural modernization, so that the agricultural sector could be boosted by the industrial sector, while the rural areas could benefit from the urban regions.

He said authorities should facilitate balanced allocation of public resources and the free flow of production factors between urban and rural areas.

Hu pointed out that China was currently facing both opportunities and challenges at the same time, but the opportunities outweighed challenges.

He urged officials in the Jiangsu Province to push forward independent innovation, promote urban-rural integration of economic and social development, and deepen the reform and opening-up drive.
