MEP Minister Chen Jining chairs a symposium today, at which some NPC deputies and CPPCC members are invited to contribute their wisdoms to environmental protection. Vice Minister Zhao Yingmin gives a brief introduction to the state of the environment in China in 2016 and the latest developments in environmental protection. In response, the participating deputies and members comment that the CPC Central Committee and the State Council have always highly valued the environmental protection work in which positive progress has been made over the past year. However, we’re still facing a very daunting environmental situation, and the concerted efforts of the whole society are needed. They also voice their opinions with respect to the air, water, and soil pollution control, the environmental enforcement, the environmental monitoring, the integrated rural environment management, the public participation, and the environmental science and technology. Chen expresses gratitude to their contributions, vows to take their opinions and recommendations seriously, and invites them to support and supervise the environmental protection effort as always. The Ministry will make greater efforts to promote the environmental improvement and increase the sense of gain of the people.
