Xi stresses developing specialty industries, boosting development through innovation
XINING, June 8 (Xinhua) -- Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, has stressed developing more local specialty industries and achieving better development through innovation.
Xi made the remarks on Monday while visiting a company producing Tibetan carpets during an inspection tour of northwest China's Qinghai Province.
Xi learned about the production and design of the carpets during his time at the company's workshop and design department.
He said the Tibetan carpet has unique features and the locals have combined traditional and modern crafts very well and met the personalized and diversified demands of the market.
The Tibetan carpet industry, an industry that suits Qinghai's actual situation, helps people get out of poverty and boost rural vitalization and promotes ethnic unity, Xi noted.
