BEIJING, March 20 (Xinhua) -- Top Chinese leaders paid visits on Thursday and Friday to the 2009 Energy Saving, Emissions Reduction and New Energy Science and Technology Expo, which is held at the Beijing Exhibition Hall from March 19 to 23.

The leaders of the state and the Communist Party of China included Hu Jintao, Wu Bangguo, Wen Jiabao, Jia Qinglin, Xi Jinping, Li Keqiang, He Guoqiang and Zhou Yongkang.

They looked around the booths, watching carefully fuel cell cars, hybrid electric vehicles and new energy-saving washing machines, and getting to know the latest measures the government has taken for emission reduction and new energy development.

Hu Jintao emphasized that China should enhance its energy saving and continue to develop renewable energy sources in light of the present global economic downturn.

China would take an active part in international cooperation to cope with climate changes and jointly build ecological civilization together with other countries, Hu said.
