Chinese Vice Premier Li Keqiang met Thursday economic experts from Tsinghua University and urged them to contribute more advice on how to better develop the nation's economy.
In a meeting with the Advisory Board of the School of Economics and Management at Tsinghua University, Li said he hopes the advisors can create more opportunities for cooperation in education and science between China and other nations.
The advisory board includes professors from foreign universities and executives from multinational corporations.
China's economy has developed rapidly since reform and opening up but per capita income is still low, Li said.
China faces an imbalance in development and a shortage of highly-talented and innovative people, Li added.
China will accelerate it economic restructuring and foster an advantage in human resources through education, he said.
John L. Thornton, chairman of the advisory board, said the board of advisors will perform its duties well.
