Government officials from Xixian New Area pledged to accelerate work on environmental protection, according to a work conference on April 17.

Yue Huafeng, director of Xixian New Area administrative committee, said at the conference that environmental problems will be fixed in accordance with the feedback provided by a central government inspection. 

“The traditional views of pushing development and not considering the environmental impact have to be changed,” Yue said.

Yue also stressed that a comprehensive work plan and system of responsibility need to be applied to regional environment improvement projects. Specific details such as rectification measures, deadlines for ratification, responsibility units, and sources of funds need to be clarified.

At the conference, Li Zhao’e, deputy director of Xixian New Area administrative committee, signed an environmental protection responsibility agreement on behalf of relevant government departments.
