Xi showed keen interest in the latest progress in the digital information sector, which is considered a key part of the real economy.

The president called on companies to improve their ability to innovate and compete in the global market, stressing that companies need to shift from Made-in-China to Invented-in-China and focus on quality instead of speed and creating more Chinese brands.

Xi underscored that China's economy has shifted from high-speed growth to high-quality development and that the goal is to develop a modernized economy.

"The government of Sichuan should further promote the development of the real economy, deepen supply-side structural reform, encourage innovation, and push forward the coordinated development of urban and rural areas," he said.

Xi said since the 19th CPC National Congress had shown the way forward for the Party and the state, cadres must work hard for the various tasks, and especially work to let the people benefit.

He reiterated upholding the authority of the CPC Central Committee and its centralized and unified leadership. "Do whatever the Party authority asks them to do and refrain from doing what it bans," he said.
