In­vest­ing in En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion

Bei­jing: a Dy­namic City

Beijing (English) - - FRONT PAGE - Trans­lated by Wang Wei Edited by David Ball

Ac­cord­ing to a doc­u­ment is­sued by the Peo­ple's Gov­ern­ment of Bei­jing Mu­nic­i­pal­ity in early Novem­ber, between 2019 and 2022, the cap­i­tal will im­ple­ment 16 mea­sures cov­er­ing five ma­jor as­pects to strengthen the city's en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion.

These as­pects in­clude im­prov­ing the com­pen­sa­tion mech­a­nism for eco­log­i­cal pro­tec­tion, in­creas­ing in­vest­ment in eco­log­i­cal pro­tec­tion, cul­ti­vat­ing the lead­ing func­tions of the city's eco­log­i­cal con­ser­va­tion zones and up­grad­ing their in­dus­trial struc­tures, strength­en­ing the eval­u­a­tion of gov­ern­ment agen­cies in eco­log­i­cal pro­tec­tion and in­creas­ing green de­vel­op­ment. This means that Bei­jing will fol­low a road of “high-qual­ity growth” by fo­cus­ing on mea­sures such as de­vel­op­ing the city's eco­log­i­cal con­ser­va­tion zones into demon­stra­tion zones to show­case the city's nat­u­ral beauty, his­tory and cul­ture; con­struct a lead­ing-area for eco­log­i­cal civil­i­sa­tion; and create an en­vi­ron­ment suitable for liv­ing, in­vest­ment and tourism.

Bei­jingers can al­ready feel the im­prove­ments that have been made to the city's eco­log­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment. The city con­tains more and more pocket parks, water­side trails and ur­ban mi­cro-land­scapes, which re­flect the great achieve­ments in the con­struc­tion of the city's eco­log­i­cal civil­i­sa­tion. Fur­ther­ing eco­log­i­cal civil­i­sa­tion is a “mil­len­nium plan” for the sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment of the Chi­nese na­tion. For the cap­i­tal's cit­i­zens, de­vel­op­ing a beau­ti­ful Bei­jing is an ex­am­ple of putting into prac­tice Chi­nese Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping's con­cept that “lu­cid wa­ters and lush moun­tains are in­valu­able as­sets.”
