President Xi Jinping conducted an inspection tour in the cities of Qingdao and Weihai of Shandong province on Tuesday morning after attending the 18th SCO Summit in Qingdao.

Xi first came to the Pilot National Laboratory for Marine Science and Technology (Qingdao), to know more about major frontier sciences, the independent research and development of marine high-end equipment, as well as the promotion of military-civilian integration.

He encouraged the research staff members to contribute more to the country.

At the laboratory, Guan Huashi, an academician from Chinese Academy of Engineering, spoke with Xi about the research and development of marine drug. Guan said his dream is to build China's "blue drugstore".
