Mr. Wan Jun of the Chinese Academy for Environmental Planning said lots of progress has been made in the last five years since the 18th Communist Party of China (CPC) Congress. This, he said is because the CPC Central Committee lays great premium on environmental protection and management.

The Chinese People also are aware of the fact that there is a need to have a good environmental protection and green development, which is why they have joined the government to ensure an effective environmental management,” Wan said, and further states that they have launched Action Plans to declare war against air and water pollutions and have taken action to improve on green development, carbon dioxide emissions reduced and has made China become the biggest country on new energy and renewable energy.
