Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao chaired a meeting held by the State Council Wednesday, urging for thrifty preparation for Beijing 2008 Olympics and better work environment for rural migrants.

After hearing a report on the preparation of the 2008 Olympic Games, the meeting urged officials to tighten their supervision of funds for Olympic projects and to ensure their qualities. The preparation of 2008 game should be conducted in line with the capital's urban development, environment protection and cultural purification in a bid to cultivate a sound physical and culture environment.

Urban transport and telecom construction and air pollution control should be strengthened, the meeting said.

The State Council also required to strengthen exchange and cooperation with the International Olympic Committee and other international organizations.

The meeting heard the Ministry of Labor and Social Security's report on improving the employment conditions for rural migrants.

By the end of this year, local governments and business units should pay all wages owed to migrant labors and to eliminate discriminating regulations, the meeting said.

Government should intensify inspections and implementations of laws safeguarding rural migrant's rights and sternly punish those who break the laws.

The meeting also urged employers to provide free information and necessary training to workers. In high risk professions, such as construction and mining that mainly employ migrant workers, industrial injury insurance should be specially recommended.
