Premier Li Keqiang extended his Spring Festival greetings to people of Ningxia Hui autonomous region on Feb 2 while visiting an exhibition center on "Smart Ningxia" initiative.
Premier Li wished happiness and health to people of Ningxia on behalf of the State Council.
Aided by the cloud platform of "Smart Ningxia", local people received the Premier's message from more than 10 screens displayed at train stations and citizen service centers, as well as from Weibo and WeChat terminals.
The center has conducted data studies in eight fields such as government affairs and social insurance, and aided the government in policy-making.
Premier Li checked the data on poverty-alleviation and salary payment of rural migrant workers before Spring Festival.
Giving his approval, he urged the government to adopt the "Internet Plus" to make its services smarter.
Local young entrepreneur Wang Lei had the fortune to meet Premier Li again on Feb 2 at the exhibition center.
In 2012, Premier Li visited Wang's family on an inspection visit and encouraged Wang, who had been laid off since college graduation, to start his own business.
Now, Wang has founded his own company amid the national wave of entrepreneurship and innovation.
Premier Li also received an orange monkey model and Spring Festival greetings from a "makers" team who have been researching and developing 3D printing.
On hearing that a senior-year college student is leading the team, Premier Li praised their entrepreneurial ideas and practice while calling on them to prioritize studies at the same time.
"Only if you build a solid academic foundation, can you expand more space for entrepreneurship in the future," the Premier said.
