WUHAN, March 31 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Sun Chunlan Tuesday called for efforts to organize spring plowing and help enterprises resume work and production.
Leading a central guiding group to oversee the epidemic control work in Hubei Province, the previous epicenter of the COVID-19 epidemic, Sun, also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remarks while inspecting spring plowing and production resumption in the Hubei city of Xianning.
The group visited a tea farm and two enterprises in the city.
While ensuring the epidemic control, efforts should also be made to capitalize on the window for spring plowing, Sun said, urging strengthened farm management, detailed technical guidance for farmers, convenient transportation for agricultural materials and more help for Hubei to sell farm products.
Sun also stressed that during this critical period to resume work and production, the supporting measures for industries should be improved to provide more driving forces for enterprises.
Preferential policies for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises should be fully implemented, Sun noted, adding that the problems of local authorities and enterprises should be solved in a timely manner.
