China will quicken the pace of implementing the strategy of free trade zones (FTZs) and turn institutional innovation into a strong impetus for the country's development, President Xi Jinping said Thursday.

To speed up the implementation of FTZ strategy is an important part of a new round of reform and opening-up. China should aim for high-standard trade and investment rules, and strengthen its capability for allocating financial resources around the world and better serving the country's economic development, Xi said.

Xi made the remarks while speaking with lawmakers from east China's Shanghai in a panel discussion on the government work report delivered by Premier Li Keqiang.

Xi urged Shanghai to continue its leading role in spearheading the country's ongoing reform, opening-up and innovation drive, in an effort to make greater contributions to the nation's reform, development and stability.

"Innovation is the most important driving force for development," said Xi, adding that China needs to break through the system and mechanism barriers to innovation.
