China Says Slowing Economy Won't Stop Anti-Pollution Effort

Mar 11 , 2016

China will not return to its era of pursuing economic growth at the expense of the environment despite its slowing economy, the country's environment minister said Friday.

Chen Jining said China would continue to restructure its economy away from heavily polluting companies to create more room for "good companies" to develop and focus on technological innovation, for example.

Chen pointed, however, to the need to rein in local governments, some of whom are still leery of enforcing environmental laws in favor of boosting economic growth in their areas.
