CEF Director Jennifer Turner interviewed by Radio Free Asia on the latest China Environmental Law amendments

Apr 23, 2014

 Official news agency Xinhua reported late on Apr 21, the amendments to China's 1989 environmental protection law have been submitted to the country's parliament for deliberation. The amendments, now in their fourth draft, are expected to enshrine environmental protection as the overriding priority of the Chinese government, and will also include provisions to help Beijing impose rules on powerful industrial interests.

Jennifer Turner, the Director of CEF, was interviewed by Radio Free Asia yesterday on this issue. In the interview, Turner summarized the significance and key points of the amendments. She also pointed out the trend that the environmental authorties in China would enjoy more power to improve the increasing pollutions in the country.
