BEIJING, May 30 (Xinhua) -- A senior Party official on Wednesday urged scientists to study Xi Jinping's latest instructions on innovation in science and technology and work to develop China into a world leader in this area.

It is vital to understand the important instructions made by Xi, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, and willingly and firmly carry them out, said Wang Huning, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, at a meeting to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST).
