Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao has called on people in the quake hit areas to restore production and make a living with their own hands.

He made the remark on a visit to Northwestern China's Shaanxi and Gansu Provinces, which were also badly hit by the May 12th Sichuan earthquake.

Speaking in front of a crowd of villagers, Wen Jiabao encouraged them to rebuild their homes through self reliance.

"We should make continuous effort, resuming production via self reliance. I believe through our hard work, we will build better than what we had before. "

Wen Jiabao added the lives of quake-affected people should basically be back to normal in the two provinces in two months, and reconstruction should be basically completed by 2010.

As of Saturday noon, the death toll in the May 12 earthquake had exceeded 69,180.
