BEIJING - Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said China's urbanization should be human-centered and improve the quality of people's lives.

Visiting an exhibition of residential building technology on Thursday, Li urged building green cities that are inclusive and organic "life entities" for dwellers to live and work in peace and contentment.

Li stressed that Chinese traditional elements should be protected and urban infrastructure should be enhanced during the city-building process to integrate historical and cultural heritage into modern life.

He urged stepping up innovation to solve environmental problems in cities, such as those involving energy, water and smog.

China unveiled an urbanization plan for the 2014-2020 period in March, aimed at steering the country's urbanization onto a human-centered and environmentally friendly path.

The exhibition was held in the National Museum of China.
