Hu made the remarks while visiting Shandong Province, eastern China, Tuesday and Wednesday, where he inspected businesses, ports and communities in the cities of Jinan and Qingdao, and told local governments to rise to the challenge and tap their potential.

"Those who can make it through the crisis can expect more future development," Hu said while visiting Shengmei'er Light Industry Products Company, an export-oriented garment producer in Qingdao.

He said the government had adopted a series of policies and measures to beef up business confidence, and they themselves should also give their employees confidence. "So long as we make concerted efforts, we can overcome the most daunting difficulties."
