LANZHOU, July 10 (Xinhua) -- China's Vice Premier Zhang Dejiang urged local governments in the country's western regions to step up efforts to develop industries with local advantages.

Zhang made the remarks during an inspection tour in west China's Gansu Province from Thursday to Saturday, as the central government announced a refreshed plan to promote growth in western areas earlier this week.

Western provinces which are rich in natural resources should make the best of their natural conditions and translate advantages in natural resources into economic advantages, Zhang said.

He urged local governments to accelerate the upgrading of traditional industries, cultivate strategic emerging industries, and advance the recycling economy.

Zhang also called for more efforts to raise managerial competence, operational efficiency, product quality and research capabilities of enterprises to increase the quality and efficiency of China's industrial sector.
