Vice-Premier Wang Yang last Fri­day urged the Na­tional Af­foresta­tion Com­mit­tee to in­crease af­foresta­tion and green in­dus­tries to un­der­pin China’s sus­tain­able and healthy de­vel­op­ment.

In the next five years, China should do more to add green re­sources, strengthen ecolog- ical restora­tion and deepen col­lec­tive for­est right sys­tem re­form, Wang said. Green de­vel­op­ment is one of the five cor­ner­stones of the coun­try’s new de­vel­op­ment phi­los­o­phy for the 13th Five-Year Plan pe­riod (20162020) along with in­no­va­tion, co-or­di­na­tion, open­ing up and shar­ing.

China’s for­est cov­er­age ra­tio had ex­panded by 1.3 per­cent­age points as of 2015 when com­pared with five years ago. Mean­while, the vol­ume of grow­ing stock had surged 10.3 per cent. Source: Xin­hua
