Chinese Vice Premier Hui Liangyu said Sunday the government would soon implement the reconstruction plan for quake-hit Yushu in northwest China's Qinghai Province.
Hui made the remarks at a meeting of the State Council's earthquake relief and disaster control headquarters held Sunday in Xining, capital of Qinghai, according a statement released after the meeting.
"We must strive to accomplish major reconstruction tasks in three years in a coordinated and scientific way and in accordance with the law," Hui said.
Yushu was hit by a 7.1-magnitude quake April 14, with more than 2,200 people being killed and thousands of homes being flattened.
The State Council approved the reconstruction plan for Yushu prefecture on June 14.
Hui said the reconstruction must be carried out strictly according to the plan, while calling for a timely allocation of sufficient government funds.
He called on builders, mainly from other parts of China, to aid the reconstruction efforts.【1】 【2】 http://paper.people.com.cn/rmrb/html/2010-06/21/nw.D110000renmrb_20100621_3-02.htm?div=-1
