China approves reports on quake relief work, reconstruction plan-Xinhua

China on Thursday passed a report on the relief work and reconstruction following the May 12 quake that devastated the southwest Sichuan and some neighboring provinces.

The country will spend three years to complete preliminary reconstruction and further develop the quake-hit region in the following five years, according to the plan.

Vice Premier Hui Liangyu said Wednesday 40 billion yuan (about 5.7 billion U.S. dollars) from the reconstruction fund would be dedicated to subsidize the rebuilding and repair of farmers’ homes.
