|BEIJING Air VaporMax Plus Womens UK , June 29 (Xinhua) -- Chinese police arrested around 8,500 suspects in more than 4,500 environment-related criminal cases in 2014, as the country waged war against pollution, environment minister Chen Jining said on Monday.
Addressing lawmakers during a bi-monthly session of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, Chen said stricter enforcement of tough environmental laws was a key factor in curbing air pollution.
Environmental authorities transferred more than 2 Air VaporMax Plus Mens UK ,000 cases of suspected environmental law violations to the police, more than double the figure for the past 10 years combined.
Close to 3,400 companies and 3,700 construction sites were also found to have violated environment laws and more than 3,100 workshops were closed following air quality inspections by Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) officials and drones, Chen said.
The announcement came amid a spell of heavy smog in Beijing and the neighboring Tianjin municipality and Hebei Province for the better part of a week.
One year after the world's second-largest economy "declared war" on pollution after decades of pursuing growth at the expense of the environment Air Max Plus UK , air pollution has become one of the top concerns for Chinese citizens, particularly those living in big, industrial cities in the central and eastern regions of the country.
According to an MEP communique released earlier this month, only 16 of the 161 major cities subject to air quality monitoring met the national standards for clean air in 2014.
But Chen -- who was appointed environment minister just this March amid hopes to breath some new air into the uphill battle against pollution -- said that China's overall air quality improved in 2014 and early this year.
Average PM10 readings in 338 cities monitored by the MEP dropped by 2.1 percent year on year in 2014, and by 5.3 percent in the first four months of 2015.
Readings of PM2.5 -- smaller particulate matter which can penetrate deep into the lungs, thus posing a greater health threat than PM10 -- dropped in 74 cities by 11.1 percent in 2014 and 15.2 percent from January to April this year www.vapormaxplusuk.com , the minister said.
Air quality changes were particularly evident in the notoriously smoggy Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, where PM2.5 readings recorded faster-than-average drops: 12.3 percent in 2014 and 20 percent this year, according to Chen.
He attributed the decrease to additional government financial support and enforcement of its policies, new technology and better coordination between ministries and among cities in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the Pearl River Delta and the Yangtze River Delta.
The government earmarked 9.8 billion yuan (1.6 billion U.S. dollars) for air pollution prevention and control in 2014 in addition to 2.5 billion in budget investment arrangements, Chen said Nike VaporMax Plus UK Sale , adding that government funds helped leverage private investment worth some 300 billion yuan.
He noted that China had managed to meet its target set in the 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-2015) to cut outdated capacity in the polluting steel, cement and glass sectors one year ahead of target, and that optimization of the country's energy structure is already in motion.
Nationwide consumption of coal fell for the first time in 15 years in 2014, when it declined 2.9 percent. Clean energy sources such as hydroelectricity, wind energy, nuclear energy and natural gas Cheap Nike VaporMax Plus UK , meanwhile saw their total share in the power mix rise by 1.3 points to 16.9 percent.
Discharges of key pollutants including sulphur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) have been checked, whereas vehicle emissions have been curbed by pulling heavy-polluting vehicles off the road while promoting new energy automobiles.
The next step is to further optimize the country's industrial and energy structure and cut back on discharges of air pollutants, Chen said.p Authorities will go on slashing outdated capacity this year, shut down 1,000 small coal mines Nike Air VaporMax Plus UK , improve the quality of coal on the market, ensure stable supply of natural gas, and promote the use of clean energy and energy-saving buildings.
They will aim to reduce discharges of SO2 and NOx by 3 and 5 percent respectively, and to "strictly control" that of VOC.
Chen said efforts will also be made to improve the evaluation of governments' implementation of air pollution control measures, deepen regional coordination, step up technological research and sharpen laws and regulations in the field Nike VaporMax Plus Shoes UK , to make polluters pay the "unaffordable price".
China put into force a new Environmental Protection Law this year. A daily fine system was incorporated to punish offenders and motivate companies to expedite the costly modifications needed to reduce pollutants. In cases where fined violators fail to rectify the problem, the fine can increase without limit.
Chen said environmental authorities would "bring new tools introduced in the law into full play, conduct more covert inspections and seek heavier penalties for companies guilty of illicit or excess emissions and those which forge pollution data."
Government officials who neglect their duties or abuse their power will be investigated in line with law, he said.
KUNMING, June 16 (Xinhua) -- Politicians and businesspeople are brainstorming how the Belt and Road Initiative can bring profits and propel regional integration in South Asia at the China-South Asian Expo.
The expo opened on Tuesday with a record turnover of 25.19 billion U.S. dollars, up 19.8 percent year on year. The five-day event in Kunming Nike VaporMax Plus UK , capital of the southwest China's Yunnan Province, has attracted more than 20,000 businesspeople and 3,179 enterprises from 70 countries or regions.
