TIANJIN, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao has urged the Binhai New Area of Tianjin Municipality to take the lead in China's development.

Wen made the remarks during his inspection tour of the coastal municipality in north China Sunday on the sidelines of the 2010 Summer Davos Forum, which opened Monday.

Details of Premier Wen's inspection tour of the Tianjin Binhai New Area were made public in a press release by the General Office of the State Council Tuesday.

After hearing a report by the Tianjin municipal government, Premier Wen said the Binhai New Area was at the forefront of China's reform and opening up drive and must seize opportunities and explore a new path to reform boldly and lead the country's development.

Wen said the Binhai New Area should look to become a place of advanced industries.

He said the area should lead the country's scientific and technological innovation by adopting a core strategy of training and attract talented workers while upgrading innovation capabilities.

The premier urged the Binhai New Area to start trials of major reforms and opening-up and be a model in its reform of important fields and key sectors.

The new area, which is 2,270-square km in size, has doubled its gross domestic product (GDP) in the past three years and contributed to half of the municipality's economy.

Lying between China's national capital of Beijing and the Bohai Bay, the area is seen by the State Council, or the Cabinet, as one of the country's key economic hubs.
