African Independent - - NEWS -

GENEVA: China no­ti­fied the World Trade Or­gan­i­sa­tion on Tues­day that it would stop ac­cept­ing ship­ments of rub­bish such as waste plas­tic and pa­per as part of a campaign against “for­eign garbage”. The im­port ban will come into force by the end of the year. Last year, China im­ported 7.3 mil­lion tons of waste plas­tics, val­ued at $3.7 bil­lion, ac­count­ing for 56% of world im­ports. – Reuters
