China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The top lead­er­ship of the Com­mu­nist Party of China (CPC) adopted a plan to build a healthy China in the next 15 years.

The blue­print, called “Healthy China 2030”, was passed at a meet­ing of the Po­lit­i­cal Bureau of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, presided over by Xi Jin­ping, gen­eral sec­re­tary of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee.

Par­tic­i­pants said that fu­ture ef­forts should fo­cus on pro­mot­ing healthy life­styles, op­ti­miz­ing health ser­vices, im­prov­ing health se­cu­rity, build­ing a healthy en­vi­ron­ment and de­vel­op­ing health in­dus­tries.

At­ten­dees said that al­though Chi­nese peo­ple’s health has his­tor­i­cally kept im­prov­ing, China still faces var­i­ous chal­lenges brought by in­dus­tri­al­iza­tion, ur­ban­iza­tion, an ag­ing pop­u­la­tion and changes in life­styles.
