China eyes stricter supervision of three key ecological problems

China will step up biodiversity protection, strengthen measures to address climate change and enforce ban on fishing in the Yangtze River, China's environmental authorities said Tuesday.

By 2022, the country will extend its supervision to cover all provincial regions, related government departments under the administration of the State Council and state-owned enterprises in the second round of environmental inspection tour, said Liu Youbin, spokesperson for China's Ministry of Ecology and Environment.

Environmental inspections have aided ecological and environmental protection in China besides facilitating high-quality development, said Liu.

The ministry would ensure that its second round of inspection is problem-centered, advance the implementation of the new development philosophy, and rectify prominent ecological misconducts, he said.
