Chinese President Hu Jintao on Monday concluded his inspection tour of the eastern Anhui Province, showing concern for local economic development and people's livelihood.

During his four-day visit, he went to Wuhu, Fuyang and the provincial capital, Hefei, touring factories, villages, communities and disaster-hit areas.

He dropped in scientific research institutes and enterprises engaging in independent innovation, including the Institute of Plasma Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), a local forklift factory and automobile manufacturer Chery.

The president placed his emphasis of the tour on the shift of local economic development mode, improvement of independent innovation capabilities and industry structure upgrading.

While inspecting factories, Hu visited production workshops, central control rooms, laboratories and testing centers, carefully listening to introductions and examining products.

He was delighted to see independent innovation achievements made by these enterprises and research institutes, encouraging them to continue to tackle key problems by emancipating the mind and sticking to the path of independent innovation with Chinese characteristics.

When visiting Chery, the country's largest Chinese-owned automobile manufacture with a brief history of 11 years, Hu carefully observed car accessories and engine models while discussing with enterprise leaders the development of the country's auto industry.

Along a production line, Hu watched the process of car assembling.

Noting that Chery car exports had amounted to more than half of the country's total, Hu said independent innovation was core competitiveness, and the enterprise should invest more in research and development and "take a larger stride" in innovation.

In the CAS Institute of Plasma Physics, renowned for joining the 11 billion euro (16.3 U.S. billion) ITER project aimed at incubating a sustained solution of energy production, Hu learned carefully about the latest contribution made by China to the largest ever scientific research program under multinational collaboration.

He was delighted to see that China's Experimental Advanced Super-conducting Tokamak, made by Chinese scientists, had put the nation into an international advanced camp of the field.

Plasma physicists said the ITER, initiated by the United States and the Soviet Union, is an enlarged equipment like "Tokamak," a Russian word referring to a machine producing a doughnut-shaped magnetic field for confining a plasma. Tokamak is one of several types of magnetic confinement devices and the leading candidate for producing fusion energy.

The multi-nation collaborated ITER, designed to use abundant resources of deuterium and tritium collected from seawater to produce energy, and subsequently electricity, is expected to be completed in 2016.

In November 2006 China signed the Agreement on the Establishment of the ITER International Fusion Energy Organization for the Joint Implementation of the ITER Project. The European Union, India, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Russia and the United States also signed.

Hu told researchers that independent innovation could gain the nation new edge in development, encouraging them to make breakthroughs in key technologies that "economic and social development is badly in need".

Braving snow and a cold front, Hu went to a water project along the Huaihe River to see the construction progress of flood prevention and control facilities.

Wangjiaba, one major flood gate along the river, played a key role in flood control and greatly reduced losses last year.

Climbing onto the main dam, Hu praised the initial achievement of the flood control efforts, urging the local government to step up efforts in building a disaster prevention network so as to ensure a safe life of the locals.

The local residents, living along the Huaihe River, had made great contribution and sacrifice for flood control efforts, he said.

President Hu, showing concern for the disaster-hit people, visited a local village to see whether people got their flood compensation.

Hu said the life of villagers was always on his mind. Villager Zheng Jichao told Hu that his family had built a new house and his life was guaranteed.

"Have you received the flood compensation fund yet?" Hu asked.

Zheng then showed him a red bankbook. Reading the entries marking the amount of money allocated each time for disaster victims, Hu smiled, "I feel great relieved after seeing this."

Hu carefully asked local official whether the villagers with houses damaged by floods had moved into new buildings, whether there were poor families that could not make ends meet, and whether the national agricultural policy of subsidizing crop-growing farmers and the purchase of farm machinery was well implemented.

Hu told villagers that the central and local government subsidies for the rural cooperative medical insurance system would be increased from 40 yuan (5.5 U.S. dollars) to 80 yuan per personas of this year to extend the coverage of medical scheme.

In the cold air, the Anhui native also visited local families in Hefei to inspect community services and learn of the life condition of locals. While leaving, Hu asked officials to ensure locals a warm Spring Festival.
