Premier Wen Jiabao is in Jiangxi Province on an inspection tour. He has put forward six proposals to combat the floods and help in disaster-relief work.
Premier Wen says the most important task for the time being is to solve the problems of sheltering flood victims, and guaranteeing their food, water and medicine supplies.
Secondly, all-out efforts should be made to rescue trapped people. He says work to monitor, forecast and warn of heavy downpours and flooding should be strengthened as soon as possible. Emergency plans should be prepared in advance, attaching importance to the most disaster-prone areas, and ensuring the security of schools, enterprises, railways and tourism sights.
Finally, Premier Wen Jiabao asked government officials at all levels to work hard to combat the floods, and take responsibility for their work.
