President Hu Jintao is calling for more innovation and increased use of clean energy during a recent tour of Shenzhen in south China. He was there to attend the celebratory rally marking the 30th anniversary of the country's first special economic zone.

A major focus of the President's two-day tour is Shenzhen's efforts in accelerating the transformation of the economic growth pattern.

At Tencent Incorporated, one of China's largest Internet portals, Hu Jintao discovered the company's 12 thousand staff are very young, with an average age of 27 years. 85 percent of them also have college degrees.

Hu Jintao encouraged young people to be innovative and contribute to the nation's Internet industry.

Another focus of the president's inspection is the development of clean energy. At Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base, the cradle of China's nuclear power industry, the president gained first-hand knowledge of the construction of two nuclear power plants.

Hu Jintao is stressing the development of nuclear power is a key measure for China to optimize its energy structure and reduce emissions.

Chinese President Hu Jintao said, "The nuclear power industry began late in China. But now the momentum of its development is good. I hope you can take the opportunity. We should depend on science and technological innovation and speed up construction. We should give safety the number one priority. By doing so, we could try our best to make a better contribution to the development of our society and economy."
