BEIJING, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan on Tuesday urged for protecting consumers' interests by issuing tougher punishments to those found guilty of producing fake and substandard goods.

The government must make manufacturers "pay a steep price" for making shoddy goods and focus on tackling quality issues that threaten people's lives and health, Wang told a meeting for work quality here.

China faces the challenges of inadequate innovation by enterprises, a lack of well-known brands, rampant counterfeit production in some areas and a frequent occurrence of accidents linked with low-quality products, said Wang.

He called on local governments and enterprises to work together to guard against systematic, regional or industrial-scale safety risks caused by quality problems.
