President Xi Jinping instructed government officials on Wednesday to take more measures to coordinate disease prevention and the resumption of economic production in an effort to fulfill this year's development goals.
Xi, who is also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the remark at a conference on the conclusion of his four-day inspection tour of Zhejiang province.
He urged officials to fully implement the decisions and measures set out by the CPC Central Committee and coordinate disease prevention and economic development work.
