September 1, Ministry of Environment Protection held  a press conference on air pollution control in this coming autumn and winter. The scope of the implementation includes “2+26” cities in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei and the surrounding areas. The main objectives are that PM2.5 average concertation in these cities fall by at least 15% year on year and days of heavy pollution decrease by more than 15%.

It should not be expected that there will be any loosening of environmental policy in the near term.
