Battle for Blue Sky
Hi! Welcome to “About China”!
In today’s program, we will talk about ” Battle for Blue Sky”.
Battle for Blue Sky was proposed by Premier Li Keqiang in the Report on the Work of the Government on March 5, 2017.
According to the Report, faster progress in work to improve the environment, particularly air quality, is what people are desperately hoping for, and is critical to sustainable development.
We will make our skies blue again. First, we will work faster to address pollution caused by coal burning. Second, we will take a full range of measures to tackle the sources of pollution. Third, we will strengthen control over exhaust emitted by motor vehicles. Fourth, we will take effective steps to tackle heavy air pollution. Fifth, we will strictly enforce environmental laws and regulations, conduct inspections, and hold violators accountable.
Tackling smog is down to every last one of us, and success depends on action and commitment. As long as the whole of our society keeps trying, we will have more and more blue skies with each passing year.
