CHANGCHUN, July 4 (Xinhua) -- Vice Premier Hu Chunhua on Thursday called for more efforts to promote stable agricultural development and increase farmers' incomes.

Hu, also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remarks during an inspection of agriculture and rural affairs in northeast China's Jilin Province.
