Sound legislation urged for Qinghai-Tibet Plateau ecological conservation

China's top legislator Li Zhanshu on Friday urged the advancement of a sound legislative framework to protect the ecological environment of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.

Li said that legislative work should be more targeted, feasible and workable and spoke of the importance of efforts to prioritize ecological preservation.

Legislation should be focused on enhancing the prevention and management of ecological risks, and strike a balance between ecological protection, industrial production and people's livelihoods in a scientific manner, he said.
