BEIJING, April 10 (Xinhua) -- Vice Premier Li Keqiang on Tuesday stressed efforts to create a favorable environment to improve public trust of charitable undertakings.

Li made the remarks while meeting with winners of the China Charity Award, the top Chinese prize in the area, in Zhongnanhai, the seat of the central government.

Governments at various levels should well implement and improve preferential policies prescribed for charity donators, including taxation reduction, promote the spirit behind charitable actions and actively cultivate charity groups, Li said.

Li urged improved transparency in operation of charity projects, through tightened public supervision over and self-discipline by the charity bodies.

"We should aim to make every charitable effort a clean and transparent move, and establish a good image of the charity sector, thus to win public trust and promote a steady development of the sector," Li said, while commending the winners.
