improve their lives, improve work related to religions and ethnic

Gansu to Juyanhai in Inner Mongolia every year, which creates a lake
in the Juyanhai Oasis surrounded by deserts, the premier said.

After hearing from a deputy from Dingxi, Gansu, Wen said, "I am
concerned with the potato business in Dingxi. Potato there, big in
size and having few eyes, is fit for French fries. You must make good
use of it."
