With the arrival of the main flood season in the river basin, the work of flood control, emergency rescue and disaster relief is at a crucial stage, said Wang, who is also head of the State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters, at a video conference.

Wang called on relevant government departments to fully implement their responsibilities, step up coordination efforts and work together to respond to disasters.

Authorities should strengthen monitoring, early warning and risk assessment, while making scientific use of flood control projects, Wang said.
