'Put a premium on something' nghĩa là dành cho ai/cái gì một vị trí, tầm quan trọng đặc biệt (regard or treat as particularly valuable or important).

Ví dụ
The selectors have clearly put a premium on defence.

Some events are a bit outlandish, and funky, while others put a premium on traditional goods and classic creative pursuits.

Both of these golf courses put a premium on the tee shot and if you're having a tough time finding the fairway, it's going to be a short week.

Another line remained to be explored: high-pressure engines (more than atmospheric), which could be built more compact and used to drive ships and land vehicles. This took another quarter century. Such uses put a premium on fuel economy: space was limited, and one wanted room for cargo rather than for coal. The answer was found in compounding—the use of high-pressure steam to drive two or more pistons successively; the steam, having done its work in a high-pressure cylinder, expanded further in a larger, lower-pressure cylinder.
