BEIJING - Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Thursday urged China's science administrators, business leaders and scientists to race to make breakthroughs in scientific and technological innovation.

Speaking during his inspection tour of the Ministry of Science and Technology, Wen called for reform in the country's science work system, so that science and technology can develop hand in hand with the economy.
