Premier Li Keqiang said local governments and State Council departments should help more Chinese brands and products gain recognition around the world.
He made the remarks in an instruction on brand building ahead of China Brand Day activities held in Shanghai on May 10. He urged enhancing brand building and high-quality supply for better development.
