JINAN, July 25 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has urged more efforts to push forward urbanization, promote agricultural modernization and coordinate urban-rural development.

Li made the remarks during an inspection tour to east China's Shandong Province from Thursday to Friday.

The premier said local governments should solicit more social capital to fund the construction of infrastructures in counties where these facilities are usually poor and in want of renovation.

He called for more labor-intensive industries during urbanization so that new city dwellers can get employment near their homes.

Li asked local governments to provide equal public services, including medical care, social insurance and education, to farmer-turned urbanites, and safeguard their legal interests.

For those willing to start a business in cities, the premier promised streamlined procedures, easier access to the market and a fair competition environment.

Along with urbanization, Li also underlined the importance of modern agriculture. He said China should advance farming technology and help those who choose to stay in the countryside cultivate more land and increase earnings.
