BEIJING, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- The major tasks in China's three-year project to reform its state-owned enterprises (SOEs) have all been completed, according to a teleconference held here Tuesday.

Vice Premier Liu He, also head of the State Council leading group for SOE reform, attended and addressed the conference, which was presided over by State Councilor Wang Yong, deputy head of the group.

The SOEs have become leaner and healthier, their system to encourage technological innovation has been improved, and supervision over state assets has become more professional, systematic and law-based, it said.

The conference pledged to plan and push for further reform in the SOEs to improve their core competitiveness and core functions.
