Updated: 2006-01-18 11:52

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao on Wednesday suggested that the international community set up a monitoring and early warning system against epidemic diseases as soon as possible and help all countries in their capacity building in this regard.

The international community should make joint efforts to intensify scientific research in the area of epidemiology and medicine development for bird flu prevention and control, Wen told the ongoing international pledging conference on avian and human pandemic influenza.

"China is ready to provide personnel training to member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the neighboring countries, and conduct technical exchange with concerned countries on epidemiological survey, early warning and monitoring, laboratory testing, and clinical diagnosis and treatment," the premier said.

"We are also willing to cooperate with concerned countries and international organizations in the development of vaccine and medicine for effective prevention and control of bird flu," Wen added.
