Chinese President Xi Jinping on Sunday called for efforts to advance high-quality development and improve people's well-being throughout the country during the ongoing legislative session. 

President Xi made the remarks when taking part in a group deliberation with lawmakers from northwest China's Qinghai Province at the fourth session of the 13th National People's Congress, China's top legislature. 


High-quality development is the theme of China's economic and social development in the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025) and beyond, he said. Different regions should find paths of high-quality development suited to their conditions and take concrete actions to improve people's livelihood, he added. 

Xi said Qinghai should prioritize ecological protection, promote high-quality development and create high-quality life for the people, calling on the province to make new achievements in protecting the ecology in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and advancing sustainable development.


To follow the path of high-quality development, Qinghai and other regions across China should adhere to people-centered philosophy of development and pursue innovative, coordinated, green, open and shared development, he stressed. 

Xi encouraged Qinghai to intensify efforts to build a world-class salt lake industrial base and foster an economic system that features green, low-carbon and circular development. 

Qinghai has great responsibilities for China's ecological security and the sustainable development of the nation, he said, urging the province to protect Sanjiangyuan, which means the "source of three rivers." 

Sanjiangyuan, dubbed the "water tower of China," is home to the headwaters of the Yangtze, the Yellow and the Lancang rivers. 

Xi also urged Qinghai authorities to boost employment and improve public services such as education, social security, healthcare, nursing and housing. 

The province should promote coordinated development of its urban and rural areas, consolidate achievements in the fight against poverty and implement the strategy of rural vitalization in an all-round manner, he added.
