This is Special English. I'm Mark Griffiths in Beijing. Here is the news.
President Xi Jinping has praised the deeds of a late forestry professor, who championed poverty alleviation through afforestation, saying he should be a role model for members of the Communist Party of China.
Xi made the remarks in an instruction in praise of Li Bao-guo, who taught at Hebei Agricultural University. Xi called him an excellent intellectual and likened him to the "foolish old man on the Tai-hang Mountains", a character in a Chinese fable who relentlessly tried to remove the mountains in front of his home.
Xi urged party members, officials, educators and scientists to learn from Li, whose tireless, selfless work and spirit was for the masses.
Li spent more than half the year directly involved in afforestation projects and worked closely with villagers to help them lift themselves out of poverty.
He successfully afforested more than 93,000 hectares of barren mountains and helped 100,000 farmers out of poverty.
Li died of heart attack on April 10. He was 58.
Li was posthumously awarded the title of "Excellent CPC Member", the top award an individual can receive for deeds that serve the people or the state.

China will accelerate the building two more national-level development zones to encourage innovation, as the country seeks to foster new engines for growth.
The government approved the establishment of the two "national innovation demonstration zones" in Fujian province and Anhui province, respectively. The statement was released after the State Council's executive meeting, chaired by Premier Li Keqiang.
The decision was made after similar zones, including Beijing's Zhongguancun, and Shanghai's Zhangjiang high tech zone, have played experimental and pioneering roles in the nation. And the models need to be replicated across the country.
The government vowed to cut red tape and provide better services to the development zones, making them better serve the nation's economic rebalancing drive.
The authority also announced a string of new measures to provide more medical and financial aid for residents in poverty-stricken areas.
Rural residents living in poverty will receive more reimbursement when they are hospitalized, and be covered by critical illness insurance.

China's food safety watchdog has issued a regulation, effective as of Oct. 1, to tighten the supervision on baby formula.
Both domestic and overseas baby formula producers must register and secure permits from the China Food and Drug Administration if they want to sell their products in China.
If they are using foreign raw materials, they must specify the place or country and vague phrasing like "imported milk," "from foreign pastures," or "imported raw materials" are forbidden.
Moreover, it is forbidden to include claims such as "good for the brain", "improve immunity" or "protect intestinal tracts" in instructions or packaging, according to the regulation.
Baby formula is a sensitive issue in China, after a series of scandals beginning in 2008 when infant formula produced by Sanlu Group, a leading domestic dairy firm, was found to contain melamine.
In April, police arrested nine people implicated in the production and sale of fake baby formula under the brands "Similac" and "Beingmate." Around 1,000 cans of milk powder, more than 20,000 empty cans and 65,000 fake trademarks were seized.
In 2015, China produced 700,000 tonnes of baby formula, accounting for 65 percent of the annual sales nationwide.
